Radlett Skip Hire FAQs
Will you deliver skips across Hertfordshire?
As well as delivering skips to Radlett, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Hertfordshire. By utilising our network of regional and national skip hire businesses, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business in Radlett, Bushey or Stevenage, we have got you covered.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
Usually, you can have the skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you don’t have to rush through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is full ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.
Do I have to be home whenever the skip is delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be in when anybody delivers something to your property. You can then make sure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be located just where you need it.
The same applies if you have a business. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.
However, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
Will the skip come with a drop down door?
The majority of skips can be delivered with a drop door, making them easy to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the container, especially with heavy materials, like garden soil and concrete, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky objects, like pieces of furniture.
How long does it take to get a skip in Radlett?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a day that best suits you. We can typically offer you a following day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, since to be on public property (like a highway), you must get a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of many factors that can impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it arriving within a morning or afternoon slot.
Who will deliver my skip?
As we offer a national skip service, we use a comprehensive network of verified businesses. These range from small family-run skip hire companies to national waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental requirements.
Can I throw electronic items in my skip?
Electric powered objects like televisions, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous waste and so can not be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic items have to be separated from other materials. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly manner.
What size roll-on roll-off skips are available?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big industrial size skips used primarily in the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for companies that produce significant quantities of waste.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Radlett?
This depends on the skip size you need and if you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the least expensive choice. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.

How much waste will a builders skip hold?
The phrase builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The label originates from the fact that they are the most popular sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are ideal for an array of household and industrial projects. They are the biggest size skips which you can use for weighty builders waste including soil, rubble and bricks.
What can I put in the skip?
You can use a skip to dispose of a variety of waste types. We are experienced in picking up and handling numerous items generated from building jobs, garden landscaping and household tidy-ups. Some examples of allowed waste products include things like:
- Home furnishings
- Garden trimmings
- Garden soil
- Bathroom sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
The majority of waste materials are generally accepted, so whether you need to get rid of furniture, plastic materials, timber or clothing, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The volume and items you throw in your skip may vary according to which size skip you hired. All skips have a weight limit for safety. So if you need to discard soil and gravel, for example, the biggest size you will be able to use would be the 8 yard skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?
There are several items you are not allowed to throw out in the skip. The main reason for this is that some items incorporate hazardous materials which may be damaging to the environment. They could also be harmful to human health, therefore they need to be disposed of separately within UK regulations.
A few examples of the goods that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- PC screens
- Battery packs
- Chemical substances

Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Radlett?
Generally, it is possible to have your skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But in order to do this, you will need to have permission from your local authority in Radlett, which is called a skip permit. We will order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council do charge a fee for this permit, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household rubbish, the mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to take on numerous jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be located on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most frequently hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.
What will happen to the rubbish once the skip is picked up?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into different waste materials, such as wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Can I load up my skip higher than level load line?
No, you must only load the skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste materials up above this line makes it dangerous to move, and you can be asked to take away the extra waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.
