Royston Skip Hire FAQs
Am I able to put electronic items in the skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate from general rubbish to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electronic items including cookers, televisions, toasters, laptops and even hairdryers.
Will a Royston skip hire company deliver my skip?
As we offer a UK-wide skip service, we use a diverse network of verified companies. These can include small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental expectations.
Is it ok to fill my skip higher than the level load line?
It is very important never to overload your skip, as you risk being asked to take off excess waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of what size you order, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, because moving an overloaded skip can be dangerous, as waste could drop and cause injury or damage to others.
To prevent this issue, please make sure you order a skip size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full but you have some further rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
The majority of containers can be provided with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the skip, especially with weighty materials, like soil and gravel, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in big and bulky items, like pieces of furniture.
How do you order a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you would like to hire. Tell us if the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on council property (like the road). Next, select the day you want the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and make payment with our secure online payment platform. That is it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Royston on the date you have chosen.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be at home when we deliver your skip. Providing we can gain access to the place you want it positioned, we are able to take care of it all.
For those who will not be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when booking your order. For example, you may want the skip to be positioned at a particular side of the driveway. Alternatively, you might need to ensure the skip doesn’t block access to your garage.
No matter what the situation might be, provide the details when you place your order, and we will make sure your directions will be passed to the lorry driver.
How big is the mini skip?
For those who have a small quantity of rubbish to get rid of, a mini skip could be the perfect option. What size is identified as a mini skip differs from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they offer.
The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. Cost is based on the actual size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for residential tasks such as modest DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Royston?
In most cases, it is possible to get the skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to do this, you have got to have permission from your local authority in Royston, which is called a skip permit. We can order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for the license, and it will sometimes take 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
What is classed as being a builders skip?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most often hired for building and construction projects. There are generally two different sizes that can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that can be used to get rid of substantial amounts of building and demolition waste materials, such as dirt, concrete and rock.
Although branded a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for a number of other household and commercial waste disposal jobs.
What things can I put in the skip?
It is possible to fill up your skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from home clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include wood, dirt, concrete, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you put in the skip would depend on which size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, if you will be using a skip for heavy construction waste including concrete or top soil, the biggest size you could get is the 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials cannot be disposed of in the skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ensure your skip is delivered when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we can’t promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
It is important to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will most likely incur a fee for the wasted journey.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Royston?
The price of hiring a skip in Royston is determined by the size of skip you need. The cheapest option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also increase if you need to have your skip on the highway, since you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Can you deliver skips across Hertfordshire?
Yes. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we are able to offer skips to residential and commercial customers throughout Hertfordshire and anywhere else in the UK.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can usually keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you have the option of giving a preferred collection day when making your order.
Alternatively, simply let us know when you’ve finished loading up your skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It might take a little longer to pick up your skip over busy times, however we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you run a company in Royston and need to get rid of large quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container may be a fantastic option. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers available.
As the name implies, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike conventional skips, which are picked up by using chains.
Where does my rubbish be taken to once the skip is picked up?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into various waste materials, like wood, metals, paper, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
