Stanmore Skip Hire FAQs

How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most commonly supplied for construction work. There are generally two sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers which you can use to dispose of significant quantities of building and demolition materials, including dirt, rubble and rock.

Even though they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for multiple other domestic and commercial waste disposal jobs.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We can typically supply skips to Stanmore the next working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking platform will give you a variety of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like the skip to arrive asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial industrial size skips that are used predominantly in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for organisations that produce large amounts of waste materials.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

Our company offers a full selection of skip sizes to domestic and commercial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the massive 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

Here are the different skip sizes you can choose from, with a rough idea of the amount of rubbish each size can hold:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
  • 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
  • 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
  • 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are perfect for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them ideal for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and broken baby toys to paving slabs and rubble. Having a total capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you having to make numerous trips to your local recycling centre.

Do I have to be home whenever the skip is delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be at home when the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure that the skip lorry has full access and that the skip is placed exactly where you want it. The same is true if you have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly when gates restrict access.

On the other hand, when this is not achievable, you don’t have to worry. Just tell us when making your booking, and then we will take care of the rest.

Will a Stanmore skip hire company deliver my skip?

We work with a network of both regional and national businesses to allow us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully vetted to ensure they meet the high standards we require regarding service, price and environmental performance.

What is the cost of skip hire in Stanmore?

This will depend on the size you need and whether you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced choice. The most costly and largest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings. To obtain an immediate price for skip hire in Stanmore, simply enter the delivery postcode into the search box above.

How long can I hire the skip for?

Our standard hire term is 2 weeks from the delivery date. However, at the time you order the skip, you can tell us a pick up date that is best for you. Of course, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is fully loaded earlier than expected, tell us, and we will pick it up as soon as possible.

We can normally be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. However, it is important to keep in mind that this is not always the case during busier times. Once collected, the waste will be taken to a local waste transfer facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Will you deliver skips across Greater London?

Of course, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply skips to locations across Greater London, including Stanmore, Wimbledon, Streatham and Thornton Heath. So regardless of where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

Which size skips have a drop door?

Getting a skip that has a drop down door can make loading waste into it so much easier. This is particularly true with hefty waste such as dirt or hardcore, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading large bulky items like furniture much easier as well.

Most skips can be supplied with a drop door, but it will sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to provide this.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into different waste materials, like timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Am I allowed to throw away electrical items in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This can include all electronic items like washing machines, monitors, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.

Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?

It is important not to overfill your skip, as you risk being asked to take out excessive waste before it can be picked up. Irrespective of what size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, as transporting an overloaded container can be hazardous, as waste could drop and cause injuries or damage to other people.

To prevent this issue, please ensure you hire a skip size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full but you have additional waste to get rid of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Stanmore?

This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only require a permit when it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if your skip is on your private property, such as a driveway or inside your business premises.

If you do have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on your own property, it will save you some pounds.

Am I allowed to dispose of all kinds of rubbish in the skip?

Before ordering your skip, it is essential to make sure that the kind of waste materials you intend to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some products 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.

Some examples of waste types you may discard in your skip include household items like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use a skip to dispose of building and demolition waste, including old bricks, soil, stone, metals and gravel.

Some examples of forbidden items include things like electrical items, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently have to be discarded separately from any general waste.
