Ruislip Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste can a builders skip hold?
The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These are the largest containers that can be used to dispose of substantial construction waste such as stone, bricks, rubble or dirt.
A builders skip is ideal for a number of projects. If you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out the loft, these substantial skips are often the most cost-effective option available.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Ruislip?
To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Ruislip, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display the skip sizes we offer in your location and how much each option will cost you to order. If the skip is going to be on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we can access the place you need it located, we are able to manage everything.
If you will not be at home, simply let us have any relevant delivery instructions when you place your order. For example, you may want the skip to be positioned at a particular area of the property. Or you might want to ensure that the skip doesn’t hinder access to your garage.
No matter what the case may be, simply let us know when ordering, and then we will ensure the directions are passed to the lorry driver.
Am I allowed to throw all sorts of waste in the skip?
This is amongst the most common questions people have about hiring a skip. The main thing to remember is that you can load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of rubbish which can result from garden work, building work and property clearances.
Some of the most frequent things that we find in skips include dirt, timber, bush cuttings, cabinets, toilets, and various other household items.
There are some things that you are not allowed to put in the skip. This consists of any electronic items (dishwashers, TVs and computers for example), tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all considered hazardous waste materials, and therefore getting rid of them needs to comply with a completely different procedure to ensure they don’t cause damage to the environment.
How long can I keep the skip for?
Generally, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you don’t have to hurry through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.
Do you deliver to other areas in Greater London?
Absolutely. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we can supply skips to both domestic and business customers throughout Greater London and elsewhere in the UK.
Where does the rubbish go when the skip is picked up?
When you have finished filling your skip, we come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility in or local to Ruislip where we segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
How do I order a skip?
Hiring a skip in Ruislip through us is very simple. Pick the skip size you require and then input a couple of details about when and where you would like your skip to be delivered. You then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then schedule to have your skip delivered.
How big is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact skip offered by skip companies and is great for smaller DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric goods need to be kept separate from general waste to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This includes all electrical items including cookers, monitors, toasters, tablets and even hairdryers.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Ruislip?
In most cases, it is possible to have your skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But in order to do this, you need to get consent from your local authority in Ruislip, which is known as a skip permit. We will organise this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for the permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
Is it ok to stack up the waste in my skip?
Unfortunately not. You are only allowed to fill your skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste materials up above this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you can be told to take off the excess waste before the skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or any other objects to increase the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to transport significant amounts of waste. Primarily, these type of skips are hired for industrial uses. However, domestic customers may also hire them. It is essential to consider the space they take up, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be utilised for light-weight materials including plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and stone.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you have requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery spot, as unsuccessful deliveries can result in a charge for the wasted journey.
Which size skips can have a door?
Getting a skip with a drop down door can make filling rubbish into the skip much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste such as garden soil or rubble, which can then be loaded into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading up big bulky objects such as household furniture easier too.
Most skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, but it will sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.
What size skips do you provide?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Ruislip, you will have various options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is excellent for small house clearances and DIY tasks.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also makes them well suited for house tidy ups involving large items like pieces of furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for those with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only suited to light waste materials, so they can not be hired to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
To get more information regarding the various capacities offered, such as measurements, check out our guide to skip sizes.

As we offer a nationwide skip service, we utilise an extensive network of verified companies. These range from small family-run skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to ensure they meet our high customer service and environmental requirements.
