Richmond Skip Hire FAQs

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

Unfortunately this is not allowed, as electrical products such as old TVs, refrigerators, laptops and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly way.

Can you deliver to other areas in London?

Sure, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skips to areas throughout London, such as Richmond, Hammersmith, Hackney and Camberwell. So no matter where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Richmond?

In most cases, it will be possible to get a skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to get this done, you must have consent from your local council in Richmond, which is called a skip permit. We can organise this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for your permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to approve this.

What is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a cheap skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to take on numerous jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be situated on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit.

Although most often hired by residential customers, the mini skip can even tackle smaller commercial jobs.

Can I fill the skip above the level load line?

No. You must only fill the skip up to the level load line. Loading rubbish up above this line would make it unsafe to move, and you may be told to remove the excess waste before your skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or any other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.

Do I need to be there when the skip will be delivered?

It is usually a good idea to be in when anybody delivers something to your home. That enables you to ensure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be placed precisely where you want it.

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

Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.

What will happen to the waste?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets sorted into several different waste streams, which includes timber, metals and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!

Will a Richmond skip hire company deliver my skip?

To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a wide range of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to make sure we can offer customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.

Is it possible to have a skip which has a drop down door?

For anyone who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is designed for getting rid of hefty building and construction materials, as it can be walked in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop door, although these are generally more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip with a drop door is supplied.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

If you manage a business in Richmond and want to dispose of large quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers available.

As the name indicates, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, as opposed to normal skips, that are picked up using chains.

How soon can you deliver a skip to Richmond?

We can usually deliver skips to Richmond the following working day when an order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking system will give you a number of delivery dates to select from. So whether you would like your skip to arrive ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Richmond?

Our goal is to provide you with the most affordable skip hire service in Richmond. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have your skip situated on the road or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the added cost of the skip permit.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, that will give you sufficient time to fill your skip. However, if you need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, in the event you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.

How do I hire a skip in Richmond?

After that, select the day you want the skip to be delivered. Check your order and make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your skip to Richmond on the date you have chosen.

Can I throw all sorts of waste in the skip?

A skip may be used to discard a variety of types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and processing numerous items produced from construction jobs, garden landscaping and property tidy-ups. Some examples of permitted waste materials can include:

The quantity and things you throw in the skip may vary according to which size skip you have hired. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you want to discard soil and bricks, as an example, the largest size you will be allowed to hire will be the 8 cubic yard skip.

What type of items am I not allowed to put in my skip?

There are some waste items you will not be able to discard in your skip. The main reason for this is that these items contain hazardous materials which may harm the environment. They can even be hazardous to human health, and so they need to be discarded separately under UK legislation.

Some of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard
