Royal Tunbridge Wells Skip Hire FAQs
Will a skip hire company from Royal Tunbridge Wells deliver my skip?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work with a wide range of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to provide customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.
Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it hazardous to move, and you will then have to remove any contents above the level load line. This also means you can not use sheets of timber, doors or some other item, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty to make sure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please be sure you order the appropriate size of skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you are uncertain which size is best. We will be glad to help.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be in when the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure the lorry has full access and that the skip can be located exactly where you want it. The same is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly when gates limit access.
Having said that, if that isn’t achievable, you don’t need to be concerned. Just tell us when you are placing your order, and then we will take care of the rest.
What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in the skip?
Prior to ordering a skip, it is essential to check that the type of waste materials you intend to get rid of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you are able to put in a skip include home goods like furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use a skip to discard building and construction waste, such as bricks, soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Some examples of restricted items include electrical items, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.

This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip is going to be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or public property (such as the road). Then, select the date you would like your skip to be delivered. Check your order and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. All done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Royal Tunbridge Wells on the date you have selected.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?
A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a substantial container that can be used to get rid of large quantities of rubbish. These containers are predominantly for industrial use but can be hired by residential clients too. Having said that, you need a lot of room since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger compared to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, these skips should only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and paper, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of soil and bricks.
What is a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builders skip means the size of skip most frequently hired for construction projects. There are generally two sizes which can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to get rid of substantial amounts of construction and demolition waste, such as dirt, concrete and bricks.
Although labelled a builders skip, these can be used for various other domestic and industrial waste disposal tasks.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
Our regular hire period is two weeks from the date of delivery. Having said that, when you book your skip, you can provide a collection date that will work for you. Obviously, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is loaded sooner than expected, tell us, and we will get it removed at the earliest opportunity.
We will usually make collections within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to keep in mind that this may not always be possible at busier times. Once collected, your waste will be taken to a local waste transfer station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
What happens to the waste?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into different waste streams, such as wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
Unfortunately not, since electrical products including old televisions, refrigerators, printers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items must be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly way.
Will the skip have a drop door?
When you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is perfect for disposing of hefty building and construction rubbish, as it can be pushed into the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop-down door, however these are generally less common. This is because these sizes are typically low enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a container that has a drop door is provided.
How large is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are ideal for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furnishings and broken baby toys to paving blocks and rubble. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make multiple journeys to your local recycling centre.
