Notting Hill Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to get rid of electrical items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products need to be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This can include all electronic products like washing machines, monitors, kettles, laptops and even hair straighteners.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
Typically, you can have a skip for a maximum of two week. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.
Will my skip have a drop door?
In general, almost all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, depending on skip size, availability and location. If you need a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Having a skip that has a drop door is mainly useful if you are choosing a big builder’s skip, because it allows you to wheelbarrow waste directly into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, as they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What skip sizes do you supply?
Skips come in a wide range of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is good for small domestic jobs.
Next up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a fantastic option for garden shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more substantial waste disposal task to take on, a builder’s skip may be the best option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title implies, these represent the most common sizes ordered by builders for building waste, like clay and stone. But they can equally well be used for household rubbish such as old furniture or bathroom suites.
We can also supply 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
Can you deliver skips across Greater London?
Certainly, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skip sizes to locations throughout Greater London, including Notting Hill, Pinner, New Addington and Islington. So no matter where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into different waste materials, such as timber, metals, paper, etc. This ensures that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Notting Hill?
As we provide a UK-wide waste management service, we utilise a diverse network of verified businesses. These can vary from small local skip hire firms to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to ensure they meet our high customer service and environmental standards.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Notting Hill?
Ideally, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface. If you are doing a household project, then a driveway will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public property, you will have to obtain a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge or any other public property in Notting Hill. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be granted on your behalf. An extra cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
Is it ok to fill the skip above the top?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it dangerous to move, and you will probably be asked to empty any contents higher than the level load mark. This also means you cannot make use of sheets of wood, doors or another object, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty to ensure that skips aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure that you select the correct sized skip to meet your requirements and get in touch if you are unsure which size you require. We will be pleased to help.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Notting Hill?
The cost of getting a skip in Notting Hill will depend on the size of skip you want. The lowest priced option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also be more if you want to have a skip positioned on the road, because you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are ideal for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furniture and old baby toys to paving slabs and soil. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make multiple trips to your local recycling centre.
When will my skip be delivered?
If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we can even offer a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed during the online order process.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The term builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The term comes from the fact that they are the most popular sizes ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are perfect for numerous types of residential and commercial projects. They are the largest skips which can be used for heavy builders waste including dirt, rubble and bricks.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?
It is always a good idea to be available when anybody delivers something to your house. That enables you to ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be placed just where you want it.
The same thing goes for those who have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.

What things can I put in the skip?
This is among the most popular questions people have about hiring a skip. What is important to keep in mind is that you may load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of waste that may result from garden work, building work and house clearances.
Some of the most common items that we find in skips include dirt, timber, hedge cuttings, cabinets, sinks, and various other household products.
However, there are some items that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. For example, any electrical products (tumble dryers, TVs and computers for example), old tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and disposing of them must abide by an entirely different process to ensure they don’t cause harm to the environment.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to get rid of huge amounts of waste materials. Predominantly, these type of skips are hired for industrial purposes. Having said that, household clients can also order them. It is essential to consider the area they will take up, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be utilised for lightweight waste such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of dirt and hardcore.
