Below are some of the common questions we have received with regards to our skip hire and recycling service.

Redbridge Skip Hire FAQs

How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a large container that can be used to get rid of large amounts of waste. These containers are predominantly for business use but can be used by residential clients as well. Having said that, you need a lot of space as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger compared to the typical skip you will see on the roadside.

As a result of the size, roro skips should only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not appropriate for getting rid of soil and bricks.

Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?

Once you have finished with your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste recycling station either in or local to Redbridge where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Redbridge?

This is determined by the size you need and if you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the least expensive option. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in commercial settings.

Hiring a skip in Redbridge through us is very straightforward. Pick the skip size you want and then enter a couple of details about where and when you want your skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then prepare to get your skip delivered to you.

What is a builders skip?

The builder’s skip is the most common skip used across the country. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builders skip is great for most building and construction projects, which is where the name stems from.

The 8 yard builder’s skip is the biggest option that can be used for hefty waste matter like garden soil, concrete, stone and gravel.

How many different skip sizes are available?

Skips are offered in a wide range of different sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is great for small household tasks.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold around 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great option for attic clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant waste disposal job to undertake, the builder’s skip could be the most suitable choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title implies, these are the most popular sizes hired by builders for construction waste, such as clay and stone. However they can equally well be hired for household waste such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

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

Guide to skip sizes

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?

Electric powered items like televisions, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore cannot be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric products should be segregated from other waste. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly way.

If I need a skip on a road in Redbridge, will I need to get a permit?

In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or residence, you must obtain permission from the local authority in Redbridge, which is called a permit. If required, we will be glad to organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for your permit, and you should be aware before placing your order that securing the licence can sometimes take up to 2 working days.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?

Getting a skip that has a drop down door will make filling waste into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste such as soil or concrete, which can then be walked straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading up large bulky objects such as household furniture much easier as well.

Most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, however it will sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a door is required, and we will do our very best to deliver this.

Can you deliver to other areas in Greater London?

We provide a nationwide skip hire service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Redbridge, Upminster, Northolt, Surbiton or another site in Greater London, we can help.

Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has complete access and that the skip can be placed precisely where you need it. This also applies for those who have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly when gates limit access.

Having said that, when this isn’t feasible, you don’t need to be concerned. Simply let us know when making your order, and then we will handle everything.

How soon can you deliver a skip in Redbridge?

If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we will even offer a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed when going through the order process.

Is it ok to fill my skip higher than level load line?

It is important to never overload a skip. You can not pass the level load mark shown on the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it becomes very unsafe to move. This means that when you overload the skip, you might be asked to take off the excess waste. Regardless of how secure you think the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be hazardous and is not allowed.

How long can I keep a skip for?

The normal hire term is a fortnight from the date of delivery. Having said that, when you order the skip, you can let us know a collection date that will work for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is full sooner than expected, tell us, and we will get it removed at the earliest opportunity.

Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to understand that this is not always the case at busy periods. Once collected, the waste will be transported to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed and sorted.

Who will deliver my skip?

We use a network of both local and nationwide skip hire firms to supply skips to our clients in Redbridge and the rest of the UK. Our partner skip hire providers are approved and evaluated to guarantee they meet our standards for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the most compact skip provided by skip companies and is perfect for small DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some firms offer you a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

What waste materials can I put in the skip?

This is among the most common questions people have about our skip hire service. What is important to keep in mind is that you may fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are so many types of waste that can result from garden work, construction work and property clearances.

Some of the most typical things which we collect in skips include soil, timber, hedge cuttings, cabinets, bathroom suites, and various household products.

There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This includes any electronic goods (dishwashers, televisions or laptops for example), tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them needs to comply with a completely different process to make sure they don’t result in damage to the environment.

Other areas covered include Upminster, Northolt, Surbiton, Putney, South East London, Wembley, Wanstead and New Addington.
