Northfleet Skip Hire FAQs
What can I put in my skip?
Prior to hiring a skip, you must ensure that the kind of rubbish you wish to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials must be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you can throw in a skip include household items like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use your skip to discard building and demolition waste, including old bricks, dirt, stone, metals and gravel.
Some examples of forbidden items include things like electronic products, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be discarded separately from general rubbish.
Will a skip hire company from Northfleet deliver my skip?
Since we provide a national skip service, we utilise a diverse network of verified companies. These range from small family-run skip hire firms to national waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they satisfy our high customer service and environmental requirements.
How do I order a skip in Northfleet?
This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you would like to hire. Tell us whether the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or public property (like the road). Next, pick the day you need your skip to be delivered. Check your order details and make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. That’s it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Northfleet on the date you have selected.
Will you deliver skips across Kent?
Certainly. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we can provide skips to both residential and industrial customers throughout Kent and elsewhere in the UK.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge skip that can be used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These skips are mainly for industrial use but can be hired by domestic clients also. However, you will want a lot of space because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger in comparison to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, these skips should only be used for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and bricks.
Which skip sizes have got a drop door?
Having a skip which has a drop door makes filling rubbish into it so much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste such as soil or hardcore, which can then be walked straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away large bulky objects like household furniture easier too.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, however it will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a door is needed, and we will do our best to provide this.
Is it ok to load the skip higher than the level load line?
You must not load your skip beyond the level load line. When you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means your skip is not safe to transport, and you might be asked to take off any excess rubbish before it can be picked up.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Northfleet?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Northfleet, enter your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display which sizes we provide in your area and how much each size will cost you to order. If your skip is going to be on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.
When will my skip be delivered?
If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the very next day. In some cases, we will even offer a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed during the online order process.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
It usually is best if you can be in when anyone delivers something to your home. That allows you to ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned precisely where you want it.
The same goes for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, if it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
What will happen to the rubbish?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into different waste streams, like timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Northfleet?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a skip permit when it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if the skip will be on your private property, like a drive or inside your company premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, so we can make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate your skip on your own property, you will save some money.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
Usually, you can have a skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you don’t need to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.
Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
Electronic objects such as TVs, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste and so should not be placed in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical objects need to be separated from other materials. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?
The phrase builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The label comes from the fact that they are the most popular sizes used by general builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are suited to a wide variety of household and business jobs. They are the biggest sizes that you can use for weighty builders waste like garden soil, rubble and concrete.
How much waste will the mini skip hold?
When you have a small quantity of rubbish to dispose of, the mini skip may be the ideal choice. What size is referred to as a mini skip differs from business to business, depending on what sizes they have.
The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to have a 3 yard container as their smallest option. Cost is dependent on the specific size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are fantastic for household tasks such as modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you need it put on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We can supply a full range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip best for small DIY projects and house clearances. A common option for larger sized jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Northfleet businesses which have a big amount of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.
