Sandhurst Skip Hire FAQs
What size skips can you deliver?
Skips are offered in a variety of sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small residential jobs.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yd is a good option for attic clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more substantial waste disposal job to tackle, a builder’s skip could be the most suitable option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name implies, they are the most frequent sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, such as clay and hardcore. But they can equally well be hired for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or bathroom suites.
We also offer 10-16 yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. To get more information about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
Am I able to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
Electric powered objects like televisions, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore cannot be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered objects must be separated from other waste. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly manner.
If I require a skip on the road in Sandhurst, will I need to get a permit?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you would like the skip to be situated on land outside of your business or residence, you will have to secure permission from your local council in Sandhurst, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we will be happy to arrange this on your behalf, so it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the road permit, and you should be aware before ordering that getting the licence will often take up to 2 working days.
Am I allowed to pile up the waste in my skip?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it hazardous to move, and you may be asked to remove any contents above the level load line. This means you can not make use of sheets of wood, doors or some other item, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal obligation to make sure that skips are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure you hire the appropriate sized skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you are not sure which size you require. We will be glad to help.
Will you deliver to other areas in Berkshire?
Sure, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skip sizes to areas throughout Berkshire, including Sandhurst, Thatcham, Hungerford and Slough. So no matter where you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a huge skip used to dispose of large volumes of waste. These bins are mainly for commercial use but can be used by domestic customers too. Having said that, you will want a lot of room as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger when compared to the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, roll-on roll-off skips should only be hired for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and rubble.
How long can I hire the skip for?
You can typically hire your skip for up to 14 days from the day that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection is as convenient as possible, there is the choice of giving a preferred collection day when you make your order.
Alternatively, simply let us know when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the following working day.
It could take a bit longer to collect your skip during busy times, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.
How can I order a skip?
We have developed our booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. Step one is to type in your delivery address to view all the different skip sizes we are able to deliver in Sandhurst. Pick the right size to meet your requirements and provide the details of when and where you would like your skip to be delivered. You can then make payment with our secure payment platform, and we’ll send an email to confirm the transaction as soon as your order is done!
When will my skip be delivered?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We can usually offer you a next day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip on private property, as to be on public property (like a road), you will need to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of numerous factors that can impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it to be delivered within a morning or afternoon slot.
Who will deliver my skip?
We use a network of both local and national skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in Sandhurst and the rest of the UK. All of our partner skip companies are approved and evaluated to make certain they satisfy our standards for price, service, recycling rates and reliability.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Sandhurst?

The most expensive and largest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used mainly in industrial settings.

What things can I put in my skip?
This is one of the most common questions people have about skip hire. What is important to remember is that you may fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of rubbish that will result from garden projects, construction work and household clearances.
Among the most frequent things that we collect in skips include garden soil, timber, bush trimmings, cupboards, sinks, and other household products.
There are some materials that you are not allowed to put in the skip. This includes any electrical items (refrigerators, TVs and washing machines for example), old car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all classed as hazardous waste, and disposing of them needs to comply with a completely different process to make sure they don’t cause harm to the environment.
What size skips can have a drop door?
Having a skip with a drop door helps make filling waste into the skip much easier. This is especially the case with heavy waste such as soil or stone, which can then be walked directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of large bulky objects such as furniture much easier also.
The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, although it will sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when placing your booking if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when your skip is delivered, but it can help. Being in whenever the skip is delivered means you can make sure the lorry is given complete access and that your skip is positioned precisely where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to your company property, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
Even so, in the event you can’t be available during the time of delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you book your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.
What is the size of a builders skip?
The phrase builders skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The label stems from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are ideal for numerous types of household and industrial projects. They are the largest size skips that you can use for hefty builders waste like garden soil, rubble and concrete.
What is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household waste, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to handle numerous tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be positioned on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most frequently hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even handle small commercial jobs.
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into a variety of waste streams, including wood, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
