Oxted Skip Hire FAQs
Can I put electrical items in the skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods need to be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered items such as cookers, monitors, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.
Can I pile up waste in my skip?
It is important not to overload a skip, as you run the risk of being asked to remove surplus waste before it can be collected. Whatever size you hire, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since moving an overloaded bin can be unsafe, as rubbish could fall and cause injuries or damage to other people.
To avoid this problem, please ensure you order a skip size suitable for your waste removal needs. If your skip is full and you have further rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large commercial scale skips that are used mainly within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for businesses that generate large volumes of waste.
What types of rubbish can you put in a skip?
This is amongst the most frequent questions people have about our service. What is important to keep in mind is that you can fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of waste which can come from garden work, construction work and home clearances.
Among the most typical things that we see in skips include dirt, wood, bush cuttings, cabinets, baths, and various household items.
However, there are some items that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. For example, any electrical items (dishwashers, monitors and computers for example), tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and therefore getting rid of them needs to follow a completely different procedure to ensure they do not result in harm to the environment.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your booking prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can typically have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery site, as failed delivery attempts can result in a charge for a wasted journey.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are ideal for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and old baby toys to paving blocks and garden soil. Having a capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make several journeys to your local recycling centre.
Where will the rubbish go when the skip is picked up?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into various waste streams, such as stone, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Oxted?
Ideally, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface. For anyone who is carrying out a household job, then the drive is going to be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. Having said that, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public property, you need to get a permit from your local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be dropped on a street, grass verge or any other public property in Oxted. If this is required, we will request the license to be issued on your behalf. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be available when anyone delivers something to your property. That enables you to make sure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be located precisely where you want it.
The same thing goes for those who have a business. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
However, should it be unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
Typically, you can keep the skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you don’t need to hurry through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Oxted?
Our goal is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Oxted. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip that you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have a skip situated on the road or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the added cost of a skip permit.

With the help of our network of local and national waste management and recycling companies, we offer a truly nationwide service.

How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the common skip hired across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builder’s skip is perfect for most building jobs, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip will be the biggest option that can be used for heavy waste matter such as soil, concrete, stone and gravel.
What skip sizes will have a drop door?
Virtually all skips can be supplied with a drop door, making them easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the container, especially with weighty materials, such as garden soil and rubble, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, like household furniture.
How many different skip sizes are available?
We provide a complete selection of skip sizes to household and commercial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the enormous 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the different sized skips available, 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
