Snodland Skip Hire FAQs
How long can I hire the skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to a fortnight. In most cases, this will give you sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, in the event you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just tell us once you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.
Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be in when anybody delivers anything to your property. You can then ensure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be dropped exactly where you need it.
The same goes for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a massive container that is used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These containers are mainly for industrial use but can be hired by residential clients also. However, you will require a good amount of room as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger than the typical skip you will see on the side of the road.
As a result of the size, these skips should only be hired for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and rubble.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
We provide a wide range of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip suitable for modest DIY jobs and house clearances. A popular option for more substantial jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Snodland businesses which have a large quantity of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Having a skip which has a drop door helps make loading rubbish into the skip much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste materials such as dirt and stone, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of big bulky items such as pieces of furniture easier too.
The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, however it will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a door is required, and we will do our best to deliver this.
Will a skip hire company from Snodland deliver my skip?
We utilise a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our clients in Snodland and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner firms are approved and tested to guarantee they match our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
Can I pile up the waste in my skip?
You must not fill a skip past the level load line. If you fill it up over the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be safe to transport, and you can be asked to remove any excess waste before it can be collected.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Snodland?
This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip will be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (like the street). Next, select the day you need the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Snodland on the date you have chosen.
Do you deliver to other areas in Kent?
In addition to delivering our range of skips to Snodland, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Kent. With the help of a network of local and national waste management and recycling businesses, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Snodland, Margate or Dover, we have got you covered.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into a variety of waste streams, which includes wood, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Snodland?
This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip is on private property, such as a drive or within your business premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us during the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have the skip on your own property, it will save you some pounds.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Snodland?
This is determined by the size you will need and if you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the cheapest option. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used primarily in industrial settings.

How much waste can a mini skip hold?
The mini skip will be the most compact size available from skip companies and is perfect for smaller DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some companies offer a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. They are the biggest skips that can be hired to discard substantial construction materials such as stone, bricks, gravel or soil.
The builders skip is great for a number of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning the garage, these large skips will often be the most cost-effective solution available.
Am I allowed to put electrical items in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, as electrical items such as old TVs, fridges, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.
Am I able to dispose of all types of waste in my skip?
A skip can be hired to get rid of many different types of waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and processing a multitude of items generated from building work, garden landscaping and household clearances. Some examples of permitted waste products include things like:
- Household furniture
- Hedge trimmings
- Top soil
- Concrete and bricks
- Bathroom suites
- Cabinets and units
The majority of waste types will be permitted, therefore whether you need to dispose of furniture, plastics, timber or unwanted toys, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The quantity and materials you throw in the skip will vary depending on which size skip you have chosen. Skips have a weight limit for safety purposes. So to be able to get rid of soil and hardcore, as an example, the largest size container you would be permitted to use would be the 8 yard skip.
Are there any items which I can’t discard in the skip?
There are several materials you will not be permitted to put in the skip. The reason for this is that some goods incorporate hazardous components which could harm the environment. They can also be dangerous to human health, so they need to be discarded separately within UK laws.
Examples of the things that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- Computer monitors
- Chemical substances
