Rayleigh Skip Hire FAQs

Where will my rubbish go once the skip is collected?

When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into the different waste streams, including timber, metals, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How much waste can a mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are ideal for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.

They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furnishings and old toys to paving slabs and soil. Having a total capacity of approximately 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you having to make numerous visits to the local recycling centre.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Rayleigh?

This will depend on the skip size you need and if you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced option. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings. To receive an immediate quotation for skip hire in Rayleigh, simply enter your delivery postcode into the search box above.

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large industrial size skips used primarily within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for businesses that generate large amounts of waste.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Rayleigh?

In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like your skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or home, you must secure authorisation from the local authority in Rayleigh, which is known as a permit. If required, we would be happy to arrange this for you, so it’s one less point to think about. The council does charge a fee for the permit, and you should be aware before ordering that obtaining the licence can often take up to 2 working days.

Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?

You must not load a skip beyond the level load mark. When you fill it above the tip of this level, it means your skip is not safe and secure to move, and you could be asked to remove the extra rubbish prior to it being picked up.

Which size skips will have a drop door?

Having a skip which has a drop down door can make filling waste into it much easier. This is particularly true with heavy materials like garden soil or rubble, which can then be walked directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up large bulky items like furniture much easier also.

Most skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, however it will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our very best to provide this.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. They are the biggest skips used to get rid of weighty construction materials such as stone, bricks, rubble or clay.

A builders skip is great for a wide array of projects. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing out the attic, these big skips will often be the most affordable choice available.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a number of different sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is ideal for small domestic jobs.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a fantastic option for shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to undertake, a builder’s skip could be the most suitable choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title suggests, these are the most common sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, such as clay and rubble. But they can equally well be used for household rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also offer 10-16 cubic yard bins and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For additional info on the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Do you deliver skips across Essex?

Absolutely. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we can deliver skips to both domestic and business customers throughout Essex and elsewhere in the UK.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you complete your order prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will arrive, we endeavour to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery location, as failed deliveries can lead to a charge for a wasted trip.

What waste materials am I allowed to put in the skip?

Before getting your skip, it is important to ensure that the type of rubbish you wish to dispose of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials must be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.

Waste types you can put in your skip include home items like pieces of furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use your skip to discard building and construction rubbish, such as old bricks, dirt, stone, metals and concrete.

Some examples of restricted items include electrical goods, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be discarded separately from general waste.

What is the process of hiring a skip in Rayleigh?

Hiring a skip should not be difficult. That is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, enter in your address to view the range of skips we are able to deliver to Rayleigh. Pick which size you wish to hire, and confirm whether it will be located on private property. Type in your information and then make payment using our secure online payment platform.

After your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with all of your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?

Unfortunately not, since electronic items like old televisions, freezers, laptops and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly way.

How long can I hire a skip for?

Usually, you can have the skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you do not need to rush through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is loaded before 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 a skip hire company from Rayleigh deliver my skip?

To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work in partnership with a number of local and national companies. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.

Do I have to be home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

It usually is best if you can be available when anybody delivers anything to your house. That enables you to ensure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be located exactly where you want it.

The same goes if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.

Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.

Other areas covered include Great Dunmow, West Mersea, Theydon Bois, Epping, Stansted Mountfitchet, South Woodham Ferrers, Waltham Abbey and Thaxted.
