Newham Skip Hire FAQs

What size is a builders skip?

As the name indicates, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most often used for building and construction jobs. There are typically two sizes that may be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that can be used to get rid of large volumes of construction and demolition waste materials, like earth, rubble and bricks.

Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for various other residential and business waste disposal jobs.

How large is a roll-on roll-off container?

If you operate a company in Newham and want to dispose of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips that you can hire.

As the label suggests, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, which are picked up by using chains.

What sort of rubbish am I allowed to put in a skip?

Before ordering your skip, it is essential to make sure that the sort of rubbish you intend to get rid of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials must be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Waste types you could throw in your skip include home goods like furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use your skip to dispose of building and demolition waste, like old bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and concrete.

Examples of prohibited items include electrical products, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently have to be disposed of separately from general rubbish.

How do you hire a skip?

We have built our online booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to type in your postcode to see the range of skip sizes we can deliver in Newham. Select the best size to meet your needs and provide the details of where and when you need the skip to be delivered. Then you can make payment through the secure payment system, and we’ll send an email to verify the order once your order is complete!

How long does it take to get a skip in Newham?

When you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we can even provide a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed as part of the order process.

How long can I hire a skip for?

You can usually hire the skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the collection will be as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of providing a preferred collection time when you make your order.

Otherwise, simply tell us when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the following working day.

It may take a little bit longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, however we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Newham?

Usually, it is possible to have your skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But in order to do this, you need to get consent from your local council in Newham, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to organise this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council will impose a fee for this license, and it may sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to authorise this.

What are the different skip sizes available?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Newham, you have multiple options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for modest house clearances and DIY work.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most popular sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also makes them well suited for house tidy ups including bulky objects like household furniture and beds.

We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for anyone with even larger waste disposal needs. These containers are only suited to light materials, so they can’t be hired to dispose of garden soil or rubble.

For further details about the various skip sizes offered, including measurements, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Will a Newham skip hire company deliver my skip?

We use a network of both local and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our customers in Newham and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner companies are verified and tested to make certain they meet our standards for price, customer service, recycling and reliability.

Am I allowed to stack up the waste in my skip?

It is important never to overfill your skip, as you risk being required to remove excess waste prior to it being picked up. Regardless of what size you hire, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, because moving an overloaded bin can be hazardous, as materials could drop and lead to injuries or damage to other people.

To avoid this problem, please make sure you hire a size suitable for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have extra rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the most compact size provided by skip companies and is great for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms offer you a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

What is the cost of skip hire in Newham?

Our aim is to give you the lowest priced skip hire service in Newham. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have a skip positioned on the street or other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the added expense of the skip permit.

Do you deliver to other areas in Greater London?

Along with delivering our range of skips to Newham, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Greater London. Through a network of regional and national waste management and recycling businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business in Newham, Thornton Heath or Romford, we have got it covered.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip?

The contents of your skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer centre. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machinery and by hand into different waste streams, like metal, plastics, stone and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?

No, you don’t need to be home when we deliver your skip. As long as we are able to access the place you want it positioned, we are able to manage everything.

For those who will not be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when booking the order. For example, you may want the skip to be positioned at a particular side of your driveway. Or you may want to ensure the skip doesn’t prevent access to your garage.

No matter what the situation may be, provide the information when you place your order, and then we will make sure the instructions will be passed on to the lorry driver.

Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, because electrical items like old televisions, fridges, printers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects need to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly way.

Which size skips have got a drop down door?

The vast majority of skip sizes can be delivered with a drop down door, making them easy to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the container, especially with heavy materials, like garden soil and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, like pieces of furniture.

Other areas covered include Thornton Heath, Romford, South East London, Putney, Upminster, Tooting, Sidcup and Lambeth.
