Romford Skip Hire FAQs
What waste can I put in a skip?
You can throw a variety of waste types into your skip. This can include wood, tile, plastics or bricks from a house clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, top soil and stone from garden tasks are permitted as well. Dated units from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be discarded in your skip.
However, there are things that you are not allowed to put in a skip due to the potential environmental or health risk they could trigger.
You can’t get rid of your freezer, computer monitor or your old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things incorporate hazardous materials in one kind or another. They must be discarded separately from your general rubbish.
Should you require hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to organise an independent service for this material. Feel free to email for more information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some household rubbish, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to deal with many tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be placed on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.
Although most often chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can even handle small commercial jobs.
Do you deliver to other areas in Greater London?
Yes. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we can provide skips to domestic and commercial customers across Greater London and anywhere else in the UK.
When will my skip be delivered?
When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we will even provide a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed as part of the online order process.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Romford?
The cost of hiring a skip in Romford depends on the size of skip you require. The least expensive option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also increase if you need to have a skip on the road, as you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?
It usually is best if you can be available when anybody delivers anything to your property. That allows you to ensure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be located exactly where you need it.
The same applies for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Romford?
We have developed our online booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. The first step is to type in your delivery address to view all the different skip sizes we can deliver in Romford. Pick the right size to meet your needs and enter the details of when and where you want the skip to be delivered. You can then make payment through the secure payment system, and we will send you an email to verify your order as soon as your order is complete!
Will a skip hire company from Romford deliver my skip?
Since we provide a national waste management service, we use a diverse network of approved companies. These include small family-run skip hire businesses to national waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental expectations.
Am I allowed to fill my skip above level load line?
You must not fill a skip past the level load mark. When you load it over the tip of this mark, it means that your skip is not secure to transport, and you could be asked to remove any excess rubbish prior to it being collected.
Am I able to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
Electronic items such as televisions, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste type and so should not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric items need to be segregated from other materials. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Romford, you have numerous options to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is excellent for small household clearances and DIY work.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also means they are ideal for house tidy ups involving bulky items like pieces of furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only suitable for light waste, so they cannot be hired to dispose of soil or rubble.
To get more details about the different capacities offered, including proportions, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
After you have finished filling your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility in or local to Romford where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
Nearly all containers can be delivered with a drop door, which makes them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.
A skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the skip, especially with heavy materials, like garden soil and rubble, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky objects, such as furniture.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
Normally, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you do not need to hurry through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Romford?
This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only require a permit when it is put on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit when your skip is on private property, like a drive or inside your business premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position the skip on your own property, it will save you some pounds.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is probably the most frequent skip which is hired across the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builder’s skip is fantastic for most building projects, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip is the biggest option that you can use for hefty materials like soil, concrete, rock and rubble.
How large is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you manage a company in Romford and want to get rid of large volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a great choice. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers available.
As the label implies, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, which are picked up using chains.
