Northwood Skip Hire FAQs
How quickly can you deliver a skip in Northwood?
We will ensure your skip is delivered when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the next day.
Although we can’t promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
It is important to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will most likely incur a charge for the wasted trip.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be there at the time it is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has complete access and that the skip is positioned precisely where you need it. This also applies for those who have a skip delivered to business property, especially if gates limit access.
On the other hand, when this is not feasible, you don’t have to worry. Just tell us when making your order, and we will take care of everything.
Can I fill my skip higher than the top?
No, you are only allowed to load your skip up to the level load mark. Loading waste materials up over this line will make it dangerous to transport, and you can be told to remove the excess waste before your skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and can also make it overweight.
If I require a skip on the road in Northwood, will I need to get a permit?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only require a skip permit if it is placed on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if the skip is on private property, like a driveway or inside your company premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know during the order process, and we can make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate your skip on your own property, you will save some money.
Can you deliver to other areas in Greater London?
As well as delivering skips and containers to Northwood, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Greater London. By utilising a network of regional and national waste management and recycling businesses, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business in Northwood, Tower Hamlets or Stratford, we have got it covered.
How many different skip sizes are available?
We can provide a full-range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip excellent for small DIY jobs and household clearances. A common choice for more substantial tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard skip.
For Northwood firms with a large amount of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do all skips have a drop down door?
Generally speaking, the majority of skips can be provided with a hinged door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you require a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip with a drop door is primarily beneficial when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow your waste into the skip. This is not so important for midi and mini skips, because they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the biggest containers that can be hired to discard heavy construction materials such as rock, bricks, rubble or soil.
A builder’s skip is perfect for a wide range of projects. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out the garden shed, these big skips tend to be the most affordable solution available.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Northwood?
This will depend on the size you need and if you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the cheapest choice. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings.

Am I able to put all types of rubbish in the skip?
Your skip can be used to dispose of lots of different types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and processing a multitude of items from construction jobs, garden landscaping and house clean-ups. Some examples of permitted waste types can include:
- Pieces of furniture
- Tree trimmings
- Garden soil
- Concrete and bricks
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Most waste types are generally permitted, and therefore whether you want to dispose of metals, plastics, timber or fabric, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The volume and materials you throw in the skip will vary according to which size skip you chosen. All skips have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you would like dispose of garden soil and concrete, for example, the biggest size you will be able to use will be the 8 cubic yard skip.
Are there items that I can’t throw in the skip?
There are several waste materials that you are not allowed to get rid of in the skip. The reason for this is that some items include hazardous materials which can harm the environment. They can even be harmful to human health, therefore they need to be discarded separately within UK laws.
Examples of the products that are restricted include:
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- Computer screens
What is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low cost skip to get rid of some household rubbish, the mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to take on numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be situated on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most often hired by residential customers, the mini skip can also tackle smaller commercial jobs.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, as electronic products including old TVs, fridges, pcs and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items must be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly manner.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?
If you run a company in Northwood and want to dispose of large volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a great choice. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that are available.
As the name suggests, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike standard skips, that are picked up using chains.
What happens to my waste once the skip is collected?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into various waste types, such as stone, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
Our normal hire term is a fortnight from the date of delivery. However, at the time you order the skip, you can select a collection date that is perfect for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is loaded sooner than expected, tell us, and we will pick it up as soon as possible.
We will usually complete collections within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this may not be possible during busy periods. Once collected, the waste will be transported to your local waste transfer facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
