Below are some of the frequently asked questions we receive with regards to our skip hire service.
Morden Skip Hire FAQs
Can I fill up the skip above the level load mark?
It is important never to overfill a skip, as you risk being required to remove excessive waste prior to it being collected. Whatever size you hire, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, since transporting an overloaded bin will be hazardous, as materials could fall and lead to injuries or damage to others.
To avoid this situation, please ensure you order a skip size suitable for your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full and you have additional waste to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
Who will deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both local and national skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in Morden and the rest of the country. Each of our partner skip hire providers are approved and evaluated to make sure they satisfy our expectations for cost, service, recycling and reliability.
How long can I keep the skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, this will provide you with plenty of time to load your skip. However, if you need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, if you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your pick up. Just let us know when you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
How do I hire a skip in Morden?
We have created our online booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to enter your address to check out the range of skip sizes we can provide in Morden. Select the best size to meet your needs and provide us with the details of where and when you want the skip delivered. You can then make payment with our secure payment system, and we will send you an email to verify the transaction once your order is complete!
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will make sure your skip will be provided when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the next day.
Although we can’t guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You will need to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will usually incur a charge for the wasted journey.
Where will my rubbish be taken to once the skip is picked up?
Once you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Morden where we will separate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
A builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These are the biggest containers used to dispose of weighty building waste materials such as rock, concrete, gravel or dirt.
The builder’s skip is perfect for a wide range of projects. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning the attic, these large containers are often the most cost-effective option available.
Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?
No, you do not need to be at home when we are delivering your skip. So long as we can gain access to the place you need it positioned, we are able to take care of everything.
For those who are not going to be in, simply provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you place your order. For instance, you might want the skip to be dropped on a particular part of the property. Alternatively, you might need to make sure the skip doesn’t block entry to your garage.
No matter what the situation may be, tell us when ordering, and then we will make sure the directions will be passed on to the delivery driver.
How much will skip hire in Morden cost?
This depends on the size you require and if you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the cheapest choice. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings.

Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
Electrical objects such as televisions, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous type of waste and so cannot be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electrical goods have to be segregated from other waste. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container used to dispose of significant quantities of waste. Mostly, these skips are hired for industrial applications. Having said that, residential clients can also use them. You should consider the area they take up, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be hired for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and stone.
Will my skip come with a drop door?
The majority of containers can be delivered with a drop door, making them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the container, especially with heavy materials, like garden soil and concrete, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky items, such as furniture.
What sizes do skips come in?
Skips come in a variety of different sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is great for small domestic jobs.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yard is a good option for garden clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more significant rubbish disposal task to sort out, the builder’s skip may be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label implies, these represent the most frequent sizes hired by builders for construction waste, like clay and hardcore. But they can equally well be used for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.
We can also provide 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

We provide a UK wide skip hire and recycling service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local partners. So whether you want skip hire in Morden, Romford, Redbridge, Richmond Upon Thames or another location in Greater London, we are able to assist.
Am I allowed to dispose of all sorts of rubbish in a skip?
Before ordering a skip, you must make sure that the type of waste you intend to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials have to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you are able to discard in your skip include home items like furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use a skip to discard building and construction rubbish, such as timber, dirt, stone, metals and concrete.
Examples of forbidden items include electronic goods, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently must be discarded separately from any general rubbish.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Morden?
If at all possible, you should have the skip left on to a hard surface area. For anybody who is carrying out a domestic task, then a drive will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. Having said that, when neither is available, the road or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public land, you have got to get a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be located on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Morden. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be granted for you. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.
How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are fantastic for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and broken baby toys to paving blocks and garden soil. Having a volume of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make several trips to the local recycling centre.
