Sidcup Skip Hire FAQs
How big is the mini skip?
For those who have a small amount of waste to get rid of, the mini skip could be the perfect option. What size is described as a mini skip is different from business to business, depending on what sizes they provide.
2 cubic yards is the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. Price is based on the particular size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for residential work like modest DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you want it put on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
Can I fill the skip higher than the level load mark?
It is very important to not overfill your skip, as you risk being told to remove excessive waste before it can be collected. Regardless of the size you order, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since transporting an overloaded container will be dangerous, as materials could fall and cause injury or damage to others.
To prevent this problem, please ensure that you order a size appropriate for your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full but you have additional rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
Am I able to get a skip that has a drop door?
The vast majority of containers can be supplied with a drop door, making them easy to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the skip, especially with weighty materials, like soil and gravel, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.
Do I need to be there when the skip will be delivered?
It usually is best if you can be there when anyone delivers anything to your property. You can then make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it.
The same goes for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, if it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
How do I order a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you would like to hire. Tell us whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or public property (such as the road). Next, choose the date you would like the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your skip to Sidcup on the day you have chosen.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
The contents of the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer station. Here the waste will be segregated by machinery and also by hand into different waste streams, like metal, plastics, rubble and wood. Sorting the waste in this way helps to increase the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The term builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yard skip. The name stems from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.
These substantial skips are great for numerous domestic and commercial jobs. They are the biggest sizes which you can use for hefty builders waste including dirt, rubble and gravel.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
Normally, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Sidcup?
This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only require a permit if it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or inside your company premises.
If you have to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can place the skip on private land, you will save some pounds.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a massive skip that is used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These skips are primarily for business use but can be hired by residential clients also. Having said that, you need lots of space since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger in comparison to the typical skip you will see on the side of the road.
Due to the size, roll-on roll-off skips can only be used for light materials like plastics, wood and paper, so they are not suitable for disposing of concrete and bricks.
Can I throw electronic items in the skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items have to be kept separate from general waste to be recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric powered items including tumble dryers, televisions, toasters, laptops and even hair straighteners.

All of our partner skip hire providers are verified and evaluated to ensure they satisfy our standards for price, customer service, recycling and reliability.
How fast can you deliver a skip in Sidcup?

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery position, as unsuccessful deliveries can result in a charge for a wasted journey.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Sidcup, you have multiple sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard container, sometimes called the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is excellent for small domestic clearances and DIY tasks.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most popular sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their large capacity also means they are perfect for household clear ups involving bulky items like pieces of furniture and beds.
We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only suitable for lightweight materials, so they can’t be used to dispose of soil or stone.
For more information about the various capacities offered, such as proportions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
Am I able to dispose of all sorts of rubbish in a skip?
You are allowed to fill the skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly produced from house clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include timber, top soil, rubble, hedge trimmings, furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you throw in the skip depends on the size you have hired, because there is a weight restriction. For instance, when you will be using a skip for heavy construction wastes including stone or soil, the largest size you can hire is an 8 yard skip.
Some materials should not be discarded in a skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.
