Petworth Skip Hire FAQs
Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be at home at the time it is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has complete access and that the skip will be positioned exactly where you want it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly when gates restrict access.
However, if this is not achievable, you do not need to worry. Just let us know when you are making your booking, and we will handle everything.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can normally hire the skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, you have the choice of providing a preferred collection day when you make your order.
Alternatively, simply let us know when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in many cases, it will be the next working day.
It might take a bit longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, but we will always try to be there as quickly as possible.
Do you deliver skips across West Sussex?
We provide a national skip hire and recycling service through a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you want skip hire in Petworth, East Grinstead, Selsey, Arundel or another location in West Sussex, we can assist.
What is classed as being a builders skip?
The term builders skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The name stems from the fact that they are the most common sizes ordered by builders and tradespeople.
These substantial skips are suitable for numerous residential and commercial jobs. These are the biggest skip sizes which you can use for heavy builders waste such as dirt, stone and gravel.
What skip sizes have got a door?
Using a skip which has a drop down door can make filling waste into it so much easier. This is particularly true with heavy materials like dirt and concrete, which can then be walked straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading large bulky objects like furniture a lot easier too.
Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, however it will sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when making your order if a door is required, and we will do our best to supply this.
How long will it take to get a skip in Petworth?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you have asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your order prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will normally have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver your skip, we strive to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery site, as unsuccessful deliveries can lead to a fee for the wasted journey.
Can I get rid of electrical items in my skip?
Electrical objects including television sets, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste and therefore cannot be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electrical items need to be separated from other materials. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.
Who will deliver my skip?
As we offer a national skip hire service, we use a diverse network of approved businesses. These can range from small family-run skip hire companies to national waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental standards.

How much will skip hire in Petworth cost?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Petworth, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you which sizes we provide in your location and how much each option costs to order. If your skip will be on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also have to be factored in.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big industrial size skips that are used primarily in the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for organisations that generate large quantities of waste.
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
When you have a small quantity of waste to throw out, a mini skip could be the perfect option. What size is identified as a mini skip differs from company to company, depending on what sizes they provide.
The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to have a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. The price is based on the specific size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for household tasks including small DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
Where does the waste go once the skip is picked up?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into a variety of waste types, including stone, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Petworth?
Usually, it will be possible to have a skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to get this done, you must have approval from the local authority in Petworth, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council do charge a fee for your license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
What types of waste can I dispose of in a skip?
This is one of the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you may fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of rubbish which will come from garden projects, construction work and household clearances.
Some of the most common things that we collect in skips include garden soil, wood, hedge cuttings, kitchen units, bathroom suites, as well as other household items.
There are some things that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This includes any electronic products (refrigerators, monitors and computers for example), old tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them needs to follow an entirely different process to ensure they do not result in damage to the environment.
Is it okay to fill my skip above the level load line?
I’m afraid not. You must only fill up your skip up to the level load line. Loading rubbish up above this line makes it dangerous to move, and you can be told to take away the surplus waste before the skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and it can also make it overweight.
What sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Petworth, you have several options to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for modest domestic clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most common sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their large capacity also means they are perfect for household clearances involving bulky items such as furniture and beds.
We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These sizes are only suited to light materials, so they can’t be hired to dispose of soil or concrete.
