Sandwich Skip Hire FAQs

Do all skips come with a drop door?

Generally, most skips can be provided with a drop-down door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip which has a drop door is primarily useful if hiring a large builder’s skip, as it enables you to wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, since they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?

Electric powered products such as televisions, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste type and so can not be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric items need to be separated from other materials. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.

What can I put in the skip?

Before ordering a skip, it is important to make sure that the type of waste you wish to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials must be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Examples of waste types you could put in your skip include household items like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use a skip to throw out building and construction rubbish, including wood, top soil, stone, metals and gravel.

Examples of restricted items include electronic products, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be discarded separately from any general rubbish.

Where will my waste be taken to when the skip is picked up?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into a range of waste types, including stone, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a variety of local and national companies. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we can supply customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial commercial scale skips that are used primarily in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for businesses that generate significant volumes of waste.

How much waste will a builders skip hold?

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often used for building and demolition projects. There are generally two different sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to dispose of significant quantities of building and demolition waste materials, including soil, rubble and stone.

Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for a number of other residential and commercial waste disposal tasks.

When you will not be in, just let us know any relevant delivery instructions when booking the order. For example, you might want the skip to be dropped on a particular side of the driveway. Or you may need to ensure that the skip doesn’t block access to your garage.

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact skip provided by skip companies and is perfect for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms will provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Sandwich?

If possible, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface area. When you are carrying out a household project, then your drive will be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you must have a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be positioned on a road, grass verge as well as other public property in Sandwich. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be granted for you. An additional charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.

What sizes do skips come in?

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 which is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small residential tasks.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a fantastic choice for garage clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant waste disposal task to take on, the builder’s skip might be the most suitable option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label indicates, they are the most typical sizes used by builders for building waste, like clay and rubble. However they can equally well be hired for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also offer 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. To get more information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Can I load the skip above the top?

It is important never to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being told to take out surplus waste prior to it being picked up. No matter what size you hire, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, as transporting an overloaded container can be dangerous, as objects could drop and result in injury or damage to others.

To prevent this situation, please be sure you hire a skip size suitable for your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full and you have further rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.

When will my skip be delivered?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a date that suits you. We can typically give a next day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, because to go on public property (like a highway), you must gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.

Due to several factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it to be delivered in a morning or afternoon slot.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

The normal hire time frame is 2 weeks from the date of delivery. However, at the time you order the skip, you can choose a collection date that is perfect for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is finished with sooner than expected, let us know, and we will get it collected as quickly as possible.

We can normally be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this is not always the case during busy times. Once collected, the waste will be taken to a local waste recycling station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Other areas covered include Hythe, Swanscombe, Dover, Paddock Wood, Herne Bay, Westerham, Northfleet and Sittingbourne.
