How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
When you have a small quantity of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip could be the perfect choice. What size is known as a mini skip differs from business to business, according to what sizes they provide.
The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 yard container for their smallest option. The price is based on the actual size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for household work including modest DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
Is it okay to load the skip higher than the top?
It is important never to overfill the skip. You can not pass the level load mark indicated on the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it is very hazardous to move. This means that if you overload your skip, you may be required to take away the excess waste. Regardless of how safe you believe the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This is dangerous and is prohibited.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in New Malden?
To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in New Malden, insert your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display the sizes we offer in your town and how much each size will cost to order. If the skip is going on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.
What happens to the waste?
The materials in your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer centre. Here the contents will be separated by machinery and also by hand into various waste materials, like metal, paper, concrete and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste ending up in landfill.
Am I able to put all sorts of waste in the skip?
Your skip can be hired to discard a variety of types of waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and handling a wide variety of materials produced from construction jobs, garden projects and house tidy-ups. Some examples of allowed waste materials include:
- Hedge cuttings
- Top soil
- Bathroom sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Most waste materials will be accepted, so whether you wish to discard metals, plastics, wood or fabric, we can normally take your waste away.
The volume and materials you throw in your skip will vary according to which size skip you have chosen. All skips do have a weight limit for safety. So if you would like discard soil and hardcore, as an example, the biggest size you will be able to use would be the 8 cubic yard skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?
There are some items which you will not be allowed to discard in your skip. The reason behind this is that some goods incorporate hazardous materials which can be harmful to the environment. They can also be dangerous to human health, so they have to be disposed of separately within UK laws.
A few examples of the products which are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- PC monitors
- Car tyres
Which skip sizes have a drop down door?
Generally speaking, most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, depending on the size, availability and area. If you want a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip with a drop door is mainly beneficial when choosing a big builder’s skip, since it allows you to wheelbarrow rubbish into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, since they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How long will it take to get a skip in New Malden?
We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your order prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver, we try to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery location, as unsuccessful deliveries will result in a fee for a wasted trip.
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in New Malden?
This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if the skip will be on your private property, like a driveway or on your company premises.
Should you need to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate the skip on private land, it will save you some money.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to get rid of huge quantities of waste. Predominantly, these type of skips are hired for commercial purposes. Having said that, residential customers can also order them. You will need to consider the space they will take up, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be utilised for light materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and rubble.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is regarded as the frequent skip which is hired in the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builder’s skip is ideal for most building jobs, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 yd builder’s skip is the biggest option which can be used for heavy waste materials such as garden soil, concrete, stone and rubble.

How long can I hire the skip for?
The normal hire term will be 2 weeks from your delivery date. Having said that, when you order your skip, you can select a collection date that is perfect for you. Of course, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is fully loaded sooner than anticipated, contact us, and we will get it removed as quickly as possible.
We will usually make collections within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to remember that this may not be possible at busy times. Once collected, the skip will be transported to a local waste transfer facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to ordering a skip in New Malden, you will have multiple sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for small house clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also makes them well suited for household clearances including bulky items like pieces of furniture and beds.
We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people and businesses with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only suitable for light waste materials, so they can not be hired to get rid of soil or rubble.
To get more information about the different capacities available, including measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Am I allowed to throw away electrical items in the skip?
Electrical products such as TVs, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore should not be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical products should be segregated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
