Seaford Skip Hire FAQs
Is it okay to load the skip higher than level load mark?
It is essential to not overload your skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is shown along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it is very dangerous to move. Which means that if you overfill your skip, you may be asked to remove the excess waste. No matter how secure you believe the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. That is unsafe and is therefore not allowed.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
The standard hire time frame is 14 days from your delivery date. Having said that, at the time you order your skip, you can select a pick up date that is ideal for you. Obviously, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if the skip is fully loaded earlier than expected, contact us, and we will get it picked up as soon as possible.
Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to bear in mind this is not always the case during busy periods. Once collected, your waste will be taken to your local waste recycling station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Will a skip hire company from Seaford deliver my skip?
A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Seaford. We utilize a network of both local and nationwide companies to allow us to offer our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully assessed to be sure they meet the high expectations we demand regarding customer service, cost and environmental performance.
Can you deliver skips across East Sussex?
Of course, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skip sizes to locations across East Sussex, such as Seaford, Bexhill, Wadhurst and Crowborough. So wherever you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
What happens to the rubbish in the skip?
Once you have finished filling your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste recycling station either in or local to Seaford where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Seaford?
This will depend on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a skip permit when it is put on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip is on private property, like a driveway or on your company premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on your own property, you will save a few pounds.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old electronic waste products in your skip. This includes such things as laptops, hobs, washing machines, fridges and television sets. These items can’t be discarded in a skip because they can include hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
Skips come in a number of different sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is good for small household projects.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is an excellent choice for shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more significant rubbish disposal job to tackle, a builder’s skip may be the most suitable option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label indicates, these represent the most popular sizes hired by builders for construction waste, such as soil and stone. But they can just as well be used for household waste such as old furniture or bathroom suites.
We can also offer 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For additional info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
Can I dispose of all sorts of waste in my skip?
Before ordering a skip, you must make sure that the type of waste you intend to dispose of is allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials must be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types it is possible to put in a skip include home items like furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use a skip to throw out building and demolition waste, including wood, top soil, stone, metals and gravel.
Examples of restricted items include things like electrical products, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently have to be discarded separately from general rubbish.
How much does skip hire in Seaford cost?
This depends upon the skip size you will need and whether you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the least expensive choice. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used primarily in industrial settings.

How big is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is the most frequent skip which is used in the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is great for most building and demolition jobs, which is where the name stems from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip will be the biggest size which can be used for hefty waste including soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.
How much waste will the mini skip hold?
For those who have a small amount of waste to throw out, the mini skip could be the ideal solution. What size is called a mini skip is different from business to business, depending on what sizes they supply.
The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 yard container as their smallest option. The cost is based on the specific size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for residential tasks like small DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We will normally offer you a following day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip on private property, because to go on public property (like a street), you will have to obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of many factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it arriving within a morning or afternoon slot.
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you run a company in Seaford and want to get rid of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a fantastic option. Offered in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that you can hire.
As the name indicates, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike regular skips, that are lifted by using chains.
Do all skips have a drop door?
For anyone who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is great for getting rid of heavy building and construction materials, as it can be pushed in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop door, however these are less common. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our very best to make sure a container that has a drop door is delivered.
Do I need to be at home when the skip will be delivered?
You don’t really need to be at your property when your skip is being delivered, however it will help. Being home whenever the skip is delivered means you can ensure the lorry is given full access and that the skip is dropped precisely where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is being hired to business property, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
However, for those who can’t be available at the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to tell us when you place your order, and we will arrange everything from there.
