Northolt Skip Hire FAQs
Do you deliver skips across Greater London?
Absolutely. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we are able to offer skips to domestic and business customers across Greater London and elsewhere within the UK.
Will a Northolt skip hire company deliver my skip?
Since we provide a UK-wide skip hire service, we utilise an extensive network of verified and approved companies. These can include small local skip hire businesses to national waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to ensure they meet our high customer service and environmental standards.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Electrical objects including television sets, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore can not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical objects must be segregated from other materials. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
What things can I put in my skip?
Prior to ordering a skip, it is important to make sure that the type of waste you intend to dispose of is allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials must be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types you may discard in your skip include household items like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use a skip to discard building and demolition waste, such as timber, dirt, stone, metals and concrete.
Some examples of prohibited items include electrical items, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently must be discarded separately from your general waste.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip delivered by skip firms and is great for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip companies provide a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
How long can I hire the skip for?
You can normally keep a skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, you have the choice of providing a preferred collection time when making your order.
Otherwise, simply tell us when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the next working day.
It could take a little bit longer to pick up your skip over busy times, but we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.
What sizes do skips come in?
We offer a complete range of skip capacities to household and commercial customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the various sizes to choose from, with a rough guide to the amount of rubbish each skip is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
- 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

Can I get a skip with a drop door?
Generally, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip which has a drop door is primarily useful if hiring a big builder’s skip, since it enables you to wheelbarrow waste materials into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, since they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into various waste types, such as timber, metals and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
What is the process of hiring a skip in Northolt?
This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you would like to hire. Tell us if the skip is going to be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (like the road). Next, pick the day you want the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment with our secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Northolt on the date you have chosen.
How long will it take to get a skip in Northolt?
We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive, we endeavour to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery location, as unsuccessful deliveries can lead to a charge for a wasted trip.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is delivered?
It is always best if you can be available when anyone delivers anything to your house. You can then make sure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located just where you want it.
The same thing goes for those who have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
What is the cost of skip hire in Northolt?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Northolt, enter your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you which sizes we provide in your town and how much each option costs to hire. If your skip will be on the highway or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.
If I would like a skip on a road in Northolt, will I need a permit?
Usually, it is possible to have a skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to get this done, you have got to get consent from the local authority in Northolt, which is known as a skip permit. We can organise this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for your permit, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to dispose of significant amounts of waste. Predominantly, these skips are hired for industrial applications. Having said that, domestic clients may also use them. It is important to take into account the space they will occupy, as they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be utilised for light materials such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and hardcore.
Is it okay to load the skip above the side?
It is very important never to overload a skip, as you run the risk of being required to remove excess waste prior to it being collected. No matter what size you hire, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, because moving an overloaded skip will be unsafe, as objects could fall and result in injuries or damage to others.
To avoid this problem, please ensure you hire a skip size suitable for your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full and you have more waste to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most frequently used for construction jobs. There are generally two skip sizes that can be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to dispose of large quantities of construction and demolition materials, like dirt, rubble and rock.
Although labelled a builder’s skip, these can be used for various other domestic and industrial waste disposal jobs.
