Below are some of the typical questions we receive relating to our skip hire and recycling services.
Peacehaven Skip Hire FAQs
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most frequently supplied for construction projects. There are generally two different sizes which can be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to get rid of large quantities of building and demolition materials, such as garden soil, rubble and stone.
Although branded a builder’s skip, they can be used for various other household and industrial waste disposal tasks.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
Usually, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you do not need to hurry through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge skip that is used to get rid of large amounts of waste. These skips are predominantly for industrial use but can be used by domestic customers as well. However, you will require a lot of room as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger compared to the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, these containers should only be hired for light materials like plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and rubble.
Where does my waste go once the skip is collected?
After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste recycling station either in or local to Peacehaven where we will separate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
We provide a full variety of skip capacities to household and commercial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the enormous 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Listed below are the various sized skips offered, with a rough guide to how much rubbish each size 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

Do you deliver skips across East Sussex?
We offer a UK wide skip hire and waste management service through a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you would like skip hire in Peacehaven, Hailsham, Uckfield, Bexhill or any other area in East Sussex, we can help.
Am I able to dispose of all kinds of rubbish in my skip?
You are allowed to fill the skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly generated from loft clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include wood, garden soil, bricks, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in the skip would depend on which skip size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, in the event that you will be using a skip for heavy building waste including bricks or garden soil, the largest size you would be able to hire is an 8 cubic yard.
Some materials can not be disposed of in your skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.
Is it okay to pile up the waste in my skip?
It is very important not to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being required to take off excess waste before it can be picked up. No matter what size you hire, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, since moving an overloaded bin is dangerous, as rubbish could drop and lead to injury or damage to other people.
To avoid this issue, please be sure you order a size appropriate for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have some additional rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can typically supply skips to Peacehaven the following working day when your order is made before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking platform provides you with various delivery dates to pick from. So whether you need a skip to arrive ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
How large is the mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household waste, the mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to deal with many tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be located on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most often hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.
Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, because electrical products like old TVs, fridge freezers, pcs and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects must be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly manner.
Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Peacehaven?
Usually, it will be possible to get your skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But in order to do this, you will need to have approval from your local council in Peacehaven, which is known as a skip permit. We can order this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for this license, and it can sometimes take 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when your skip is going to be delivered, but it does help. Being in when your skip is due to be delivered means you can ensure the lorry driver is given full access and that your skip is located precisely where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is being hired to a company premises, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
Even so, for those who can’t be available for delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask that you let us know when you place your order, and then we will organise everything from there.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Peacehaven?
Our aim is to provide you with the most affordable skip hire service in Peacehaven. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip that you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip located on the road or other council property, you will also need to factor in the extra price of a skip permit.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Peacehaven?
We utilise a large network of both regional and national skip hire businesses to supply skips to our customers in Peacehaven and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner businesses are approved and evaluated to guarantee they satisfy our expectations for cost, service, recycling and reliability.
Will the skip come with a drop down door?
In general, almost all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you require a drop door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip that has a drop door is primarily beneficial when hiring a big builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow waste directly into the skip. This is not so important for mini and midi skips, because they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
