North West London Skip Hire FAQs

Do I need to be there when the skip is due to be delivered?

No, you do not need to be home when we deliver your skip. So long as we are able to gain access to the place you need it positioned, we will take care of everything.

In the event you are not going to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when placing your order. For example, you may need the skip to be dropped at a particular area of the drive. Or you may need to be sure that the skip does not obstruct access to your garage.

Whatever the situation might be, simply let us know when you place your order, and then we will ensure the instructions are passed on to the delivery driver.

What happens to my waste when the skip is picked up?

The waste in the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer station. Here the waste will be separated by machinery and by hand into various waste materials, like metal, cardboard, rubble and wood. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.

What can I put in my skip?

This is amongst the most frequent questions people have about skip hire. The main thing to consider is that you can load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of rubbish that will come from garden projects, building work and property clearances.

Among the most common items that we see in skips include dirt, wood, bush trimmings, kitchen units, toilets, and other household items.

However, there are some things that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This can include any electrical objects (refrigerators, monitors or washing machines for example), old tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all deemed hazardous waste, and therefore getting rid of them needs to adhere to a completely different procedure to make sure they don’t result in damage to the environment.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The phrase builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. The term comes from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are ordered by builders and tradespeople.

These big skips are perfect for an array of residential and industrial projects. They are the largest skips that can be used for hefty builders waste like soil, stone and bricks.

Can I fill the skip above level load line?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it dangerous to move, and you will be asked to remove any rubbish over the level load mark. This also means that you are not allowed to make use of sheets of wood, doors or another item, as this will increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty to make sure that containers aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure you order the appropriate sized skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you’re not sure which size you require. We would be glad to help.

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

A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a large container used to dispose of large volumes of waste. These skips are predominantly for industrial use but can be hired by domestic clients as well. Having said that, you will need plenty of room because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger in comparison to the typical skip you will see on the roadside.

As a result of the size, RORO skips can only be used for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and bricks.

What skip sizes have a drop door?

Using a skip which has a drop door helps make filling waste into it a lot easier. This is especially the case with hefty materials like soil or stone, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away big bulky objects like household furniture easier also.

Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, but this will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a door is required, and we will do our best to supply this.

How large is a mini skip?

For those who have a small quantity of waste to dispose of, the mini skip could be the perfect choice. What size is known as a mini skip varies from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they offer.

The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to have a 3 cubic yard skip for their smallest option. Cost is dependent on the specific size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are ideal for residential jobs including small DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

How long will it take to get a skip in North West London?

We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you confirm your order prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will arrive, we try to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery area, as failed delivery attempts can lead to a charge for a wasted journey.

Am I allowed to throw away electronic items in the skip?

No, you can not dispose of old electronic waste items in your skip. This can include things like laptops, hobs, dishwashers, freezers and television sets. Electric items can’t be discarded in a skip since they can include dangerous materials and components.

Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips are offered in a variety of different sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is great for small domestic projects.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold roughly 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a good option for garden shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial waste disposal task to deal with, a builder’s skip may be the most suitable choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name implies, these represent the most common sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, including clay and rubble. However they can equally well be used for domestic waste such as old furniture or bathroom suites.

We also deliver 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional details about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
