Below are a few of the typical questions we have received about our skip hire and recycling services.
New Addington Skip Hire FAQs
Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?
No, you can not throw old or broken electrical waste items in a skip. This can include such things as computers, microwaves, washing machines, refrigerators and television sets. Electric objects can’t be discarded in your skip since they can contain hazardous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge commercial size skips that are used predominantly within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for businesses that generate large volumes of waste.
Where does my waste be taken to when the skip is collected?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get sorted into several different waste streams, which includes wood, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
What size is a builder’s skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The term stems from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are ordered by builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are great for a multitude of residential and industrial jobs. These are the largest sizes that can be used for heavy builders waste such as garden soil, stone and gravel.
If I need a skip on the road in New Addington, will I need to have a permit?
Generally, it will be possible to have the skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to do this, you will need to get permission from the local authority in New Addington, which is called a skip permit. We will organise this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will impose a fee for your license, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to approve this.
How quickly can you deliver a skip to New Addington?
We can typically deliver skips to New Addington the following working day when your order is made before 3pm. This is applicable to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking system will give you various delivery dates to select from. So whether you want the skip delivered asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
What size skips can you deliver?
We can provide a wide selection of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip best for small DIY projects and household clearances. A common option for more substantial projects, renovations and building work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For New Addington firms with a large quantity of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Using a skip which has a drop down door makes filling rubbish into it a lot easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste materials such as garden soil and rubble, which can then be loaded into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading large bulky items like furniture much easier as well.
The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop door, but this can sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.
What can I put in my skip?
Prior to ordering a skip, it is essential to make sure that the kind of waste you intend to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you may discard in your skip include household goods like furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use your skip to get rid of building and construction rubbish, like timber, top soil, stone, metals and gravel.
Some examples of restricted items include electronic items, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently have to be discarded separately from general waste.
How much does skip hire in New Addington cost?
Our aim is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in New Addington. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip that you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have a skip situated on the highway or other council property, you will also need to factor in the extra price of the skip permit.
How long can I keep the skip for?
Generally, you can have the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t need to rush through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
Do you deliver skips across Greater London?
Absolutely. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we can offer skips to residential and industrial customers across Greater London and anywhere else within the UK.
Should I be in when the skip is going to be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be available when anyone delivers something to your property. You can then make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be dropped precisely where you want it.
The same goes for those who have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Who will deliver my skip?
To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work with a number of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to offer customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.
How big is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are perfect for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and broken toys to paving blocks and rubble. With a volume of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you having to make multiple journeys to your local recycling centre.
Is it okay to load the skip above the side?
You must not load the skip past the level load line. When you fill it up above the tip of this mark, it means that the skip will not be safe and secure to move, and you can be asked to take off the extra waste prior to it being picked up.
Other areas covered include Tooting, Pinner, Northolt, Twickenham, Walthamstow, Merton, Westminster and Southwark.
