Pulborough Skip Hire FAQs
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to dispose of large amounts of waste. Predominantly, these containers are hired for commercial purposes. However, domestic customers may also order them. You will need to consider the area they will occupy, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be used for light-weight waste such as paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and concrete.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Pulborough?
A local skip hire company will likely deliver your skip in Pulborough. We employ a network of both local and national providers to allow us to provide our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are fully assessed to ensure they satisfy the high standards we require with regards to service, cost and environmental performance.
Can you deliver skips across West Sussex?
Yes, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skip sizes to areas across West Sussex, such as Pulborough, Bognor Regis, Crawley and East Grinstead. So wherever you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Where will my rubbish go once the skip is collected?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into various waste materials, such as timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This ensures that as much of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Am I allowed to throw away electronic items in my skip?
Electrical objects including televisions, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste and so can not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical objects must be separated from other rubbish. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Pulborough?
Normally, it is possible to get your skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to do this, you need to have consent from your local council in Pulborough, which is known as a skip permit. We can order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will impose a fee for this license, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builders skip means the size of skip most frequently hired for building and construction jobs. There are typically two skip sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to get rid of significant quantities of building and demolition waste, such as dirt, concrete and rock.
Although they are labelled a builders skip, they can be used for many other domestic and industrial waste disposal tasks.
How big is the mini skip?
If you have a small amount of waste to get rid of, the mini skip might be the ideal choice. What size is described as a mini skip is different from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is probably the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to have a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. The price depends on the actual size you order, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for residential work such as modest DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you need it put on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
What can I put in my skip?
Your skip can be hired to dispose of lots of different types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and processing a multitude of materials produced from building jobs, garden landscaping and property clean-ups. A few examples of permitted waste products include things like:
- Pieces of furniture
- Tree cuttings
- Concrete and bricks
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Cabinets and units
The majority of waste types are permitted, therefore whether you wish to throw out metals, plastic materials, wood or old toys, we can normally take your waste away.
The quantity and items you put into your skip may vary depending on the size skip you have chosen. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you wish to dispose of garden soil and hardcore, for example, the largest size container you would be able to use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
What type of materials am I not allowed to put in the skip?
There are several materials that you will not be allowed to get rid of in your skip. The reason for this is that some products incorporate hazardous elements which can be harmful to the environment. They can even be damaging to human health, and so they have to be discarded separately under UK law.
Examples of the products that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- PC monitors
- Chemical substances
When will my skip be delivered?
When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we will even provide a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed as part of the online order process.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
Normally, you can have your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t need to hurry through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of 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 pick it up as quickly as possible.
Will the skip have a drop door?
For anyone who is hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is made for getting rid of hefty building and construction materials, as it can be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop down door, although these are less common. This is because these sizes are generally small enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip with a drop door is provided.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Pulborough, you will have several sizes to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, also known as a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest house clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most popular sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also makes them perfect for house clearances involving large objects like household furniture and beds.
We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even larger waste disposal needs. These containers are only appropriate for light materials, so they can’t be used to get rid of garden soil or concrete.
For more details about the different sizes offered, including dimensions, check out our guide to skip sizes.

Ordering a skip should not be hard. This is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, type in your delivery address to see the range of skip sizes we can deliver to Pulborough. Pick which size you wish to hire, and confirm if it will be located on private property.

When your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with all of your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
Can I load the skip higher than the top?
It is important not to overfill a skip, as you risk being asked to take off excessive waste prior to it being collected. Irrespective of what size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, since moving an overloaded container is dangerous, as waste could drop and lead to injuries or damage to other people.
To avoid this problem, please be sure you hire a skip size suited to your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full and you have additional rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to organise an exchange.

Do I need to be in when the skip is going to be delivered?

This also is true for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly if gates limit access.
