Slough Skip Hire FAQs
What is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some household rubbish, the mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to take on numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be positioned on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.
Although most frequently hired by residential customers, the mini skip can even be used for small commercial jobs.
Is it ok to load my skip higher than the level load mark?
It is important not to overload a skip, as you risk being required to take out excess waste prior to it being picked up. No matter what size you order, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, since moving an overloaded bin will be dangerous, as materials could drop and lead to injuries or damage to other people.
To avoid this problem, please ensure you order a size suitable for your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full and you have more rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
Am I able to have a skip with a drop down door?
The majority of containers can be supplied with a drop down door, making them easy to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the skip, particularly with weighty materials, such as dirt and rubble, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, such as household furniture.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we deliver the skip. So long as we are able to access the place you want it delivered, we are able to take care of it all.
If you are not going to be in, just let us know any relevant delivery instructions when you place your order. For instance, you might need the skip to be located at a particular side of the drive. Alternatively, you might need to make sure the skip doesn’t prevent use of your garage.
No matter what the case may be, tell us when you place your order, and we will ensure the directions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
If I want a skip on the road in Slough, will I need a permit?
If at all possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface. When you are doing a residential project, then the driveway will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. On the other hand, when neither is available, the road or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public land, you need to get a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be dropped on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Slough. If this is required, we will request the license to be granted for you. An additional fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

What sort of rubbish am I able to put in a skip?
This is among the most popular questions people have about our skip hire service. The most important thing to consider is that you can load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of waste that can come from garden work, building work and property clearances.
Among the most common things which we see in our skips include dirt, timber, tree trimmings, kitchen units, baths, and various household objects.
There are some things that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This consists of any electrical products (refrigerators, monitors and computers for example), tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. These are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and getting rid of them needs to abide by an entirely different process to make sure they do not cause harm to the environment.
How much waste can a builders skip hold?
The term builder’s skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yard skip. The label originates from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes used by builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are fantastic for numerous types of household and commercial projects. They are the largest skips that you can use for weighty builders waste including garden soil, rubble and concrete.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
Generally, you can have the skip for a maximum of two week. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
How long will it take to get a skip in Slough?
When you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the following day. Sometimes, we can even give you a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed when going through the online order process.
What is the cost of skip hire in Slough?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Slough, enter your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you which skip sizes we provide in your town and how much each option will cost you to hire. If the skip is going to be on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.
Am I allowed to put electrical products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items need to be kept separate from general waste materials to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric products like washing machines, televisions, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
If you operate a business in Slough and want to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container could be a fantastic option. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the name suggests, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, in contrast to normal skips, which are picked up using chains.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
When you have finished with your skip, we come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre in or local to Slough where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
What are the different skip sizes available?
We provide a full selection of skip sizes to residential and industrial customers all over the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the huge 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the various sized skips to choose from, with a rough idea of the amount of rubbish each skip is capable of holding:
