Mitcham Skip Hire FAQs

Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?

No, you cannot put old or unwanted electronic waste products in a skip. This can include items like laptops, hobs, tumble dryers, fridges and monitors. These items can’t be thrown in the skip since they can have dangerous materials and components.

Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.

Will a skip hire company from Mitcham deliver my skip?

A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Mitcham. We utilize a network of both local and nationwide companies to allow us to offer our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are vetted to make sure they fulfill the high standards we demand in terms of customer service, price and environmental performance.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?

In general, almost all skips can be provided with a drop-down door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you want a drop down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful when hiring a large builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This is not so important for midi and mini skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How long can I keep a skip for?

You can typically keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you have the choice of giving a preferred collection time when placing your order.

Otherwise, simply let us know when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.

It may take a little bit longer to pick up your skip during busy times, however we will always endeavour to come as quickly as possible.

How quick can you deliver a skip in Mitcham?

We can normally supply skips to Mitcham the following working day when an order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our online booking system will give you various delivery dates to choose from. So whether you need a skip to arrive ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.

Will you deliver skips across Greater London?

As well as delivering skips and containers to Mitcham, we can also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Greater London. With the help of a network of regional and national skip hire businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to Mitcham, Wanstead or West Drayton, we have got you covered.

What sizes do skips come in?

We can supply a wide range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for modest DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A common choice for larger jobs, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard skip.

For Mitcham companies which generate a large quantity of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

If you need help deciding which skip size you require, take a look at our useful skip size comparison.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a massive container that can be used to dispose of large volumes of waste. These bins are mainly for business use but can be used by household clients too. Having said that, you will need plenty of room as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger when compared to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

As a result of the size, RORO skips should only be used for light materials such as plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and bricks.

Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?

It is vital never to overload the skip. You must not pass the level load line shown on the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it is very unsafe to move. This means that if you overfill the skip, you might be required to take away the surplus rubbish. Regardless of how safe you think the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This is dangerous and is prohibited.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Mitcham?

In most situations, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need the skip to be situated on land outside of your business or residence, you will have to secure authorisation from your local authority in Mitcham, which is called a skip permit. If required, we will be happy to organise this for you, therefore it’s one less point to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for your skip permit, and you should be aware before ordering that obtaining the permit will often take up to two working days.

What is a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most frequently hired for building and demolition work. There are typically two sizes that may be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to dispose of large quantities of construction and demolition waste, like garden soil, rubble and rock.

Even though they are labelled a builders skip, these can be used for many other residential and commercial waste disposal tasks.

Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?

It usually is a good idea to be in when anyone delivers anything to your property. That allows you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located exactly where you need it.

The same applies if you have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?

The materials in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer centre. Here the contents will be sorted by machines and by hand into different waste streams, including metal, paper, stone and wood. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

How large is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a low-cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to handle numerous jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be positioned on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.

Although most frequently chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.

What can I put in the skip?

You are allowed to fill the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from loft clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include timber, soil, stone, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you put in your skip depends on which skip size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, when you will be using your skip for heavy construction waste such as stone or top soil, the largest size you would be able to hire is the 8 yard skip.

Some materials should not be discarded in your skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.
