Purley Skip Hire FAQs

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?

The rubbish in the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer centre. Here the waste will be separated by machinery and also by hand into numerous waste streams, including soil, plastics, rubble and timber. Sorting the waste in this way helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.

If I would like a skip on a road in Purley, will I need to get a permit?

Usually, it is possible to have the skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to get this done, you need to get approval from the local authority in Purley, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to organise this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for this license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to get rid of large quantities of waste. Generally, these type of skips are used for commercial purposes. However, residential clients can also use them. You have to consider the space they occupy, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be hired for lightweight materials such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and stone.

Am I allowed to dispose of all types of waste in the skip?

You can load the skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly produced from home clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, garden soil, rubble, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you put in your skip will depend on the size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, in the event that you will be using the skip for heavy construction wastes such as bricks or dirt, the maximum size you could use is the 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials should not be discarded in your skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The term builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The term comes from the fact that they are the most typical sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial skips are ideal for a multitude of residential and industrial tasks. They are the largest sizes which you can use for hefty builders waste such as dirt, rubble and gravel.

How many different skip sizes are there?

Skips are offered in a wide range of sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small domestic jobs.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold roughly 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a good choice for garden clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial waste disposal job to undertake, the builder’s skip may be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title indicates, they are the most frequent sizes hired by builders for construction waste, such as clay and hardcore. But they can just as well be used for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.

We also supply 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further info on all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a day that best suits you. We can normally give a following day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, since to go on public property (for example a highway), you will have to gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to many factors that can impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it turning up within a morning or afternoon slot.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

Our normal hire term will be a fortnight from the delivery date. However, when you book the skip, you can choose a pick up date that is ideal for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if your skip is loaded earlier than expected, let us know, and we will get it picked up as quickly as possible.

We will normally be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to understand that this may not always be possible at busy periods. Once collected, your skip will be transported to your local waste recycling station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

How much does skip hire in Purley cost?

The price of hiring a skip in Purley is determined by the size of skip you want. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, like an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also be more if you need to have the skip positioned on the road, because you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it unsafe to move, and you will have to empty any materials higher than the level load line. This also means you cannot use sheets of wood, doors or some other object, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to ensure that skips aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure to order the correct size of skip to meet your requirements and get in contact if you are not sure which size you need. We will be pleased to help.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?

The majority of containers can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the container, particularly with heavy materials, such as garden soil and gravel, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, such as household furniture.

Am I allowed to throw electrical products in the skip?

No, you can not dispose of old or unwanted electrical waste items in a skip. This includes things such as computers, microwaves, washing machines, refrigerators and television sets. Electrical products can’t be thrown in the skip since they can contain dangerous materials and components.

Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be there when the skip is delivered. You can then ensure that the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip will be placed exactly where you want it. The same is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company property, particularly when gates restrict access.

However, if this isn’t achievable, you do not have to stress. Simply tell us when you are placing your order, and we will handle everything.

What is a mini skip?

For those who have a small amount of rubbish to dispose of, a mini skip may be the ideal option. What size is known as a mini skip varies from business to business, depending on what sizes they offer.

2 cubic yards is considered the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. Cost depends on the specific size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are great for residential tasks including small DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

Other areas covered include Merton, Tooting, Northwood, Orpington, Ruislip, Waltham Cross, Morden and Sidcup.
