Stevenage Skip Hire FAQs
What sizes do skips come in?
We are able to provide a full-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, which is a compact skip perfect for small DIY tasks and household clearances. A popular option for larger sized jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Stevenage businesses which produce a large volume of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What happens to the waste in the skip?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into the various waste materials, like wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How can I hire a skip online?
Ordering a skip shouldn’t be hard. That is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, enter in your address to see all the different skips we can deliver to Stevenage. Select the size you would like to order, and confirm if it will be positioned on private property. Type in your details and make payment using our secure online payment platform.
Once your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
What is a mini skip?
If you have a small amount of waste to get rid of, a mini skip might be the perfect choice. What size is identified as a mini skip differs from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they offer.
The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. The price depends on the actual size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are great for domestic tasks including small DIY projects and garden clean ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
What size is a builders skip?
The builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the biggest skips that can be hired to discard heavy construction waste materials such as stone, bricks, rubble or garden soil.
A builder’s skip is great for a wide array of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning out the garden shed, these large skips are usually the most affordable option available.
How much does skip hire in Stevenage cost?
Our aim is to provide the cheapest skip hire service in Stevenage. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have the skip positioned on the street or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the additional cost of a skip permit.
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip hire company will likely deliver your skip in Stevenage. We employ a network of both local and national companies to allow us to provide our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are fully assessed to be sure they fulfill the high principles we demand when it comes to service, cost and environmental performance.
Can I throw electronic items in the skip?
No, you can not put old electrical waste items in a skip. This includes things like printers, microwaves, washing machines, freezers and tv sets. Electric objects can’t be disposed of 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 products cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will make sure your skip is delivered on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we cannot guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You will need to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted trip.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
Typically, you can keep the skip for a maximum of two week. This means you don’t need to hurry 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 collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
Is it possible to have a skip with a drop down door?
Typically, almost all skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon size, availability and location. If you require a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful if you are hiring a large builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow waste into the skip. This is not so important for mini skips, since they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not need to be home when we deliver the skip. Providing we are able to gain access to the place you want it located, we are able to take care of everything.
For those who are not likely to be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For example, you may need the skip to be positioned at a particular part of the driveway. Or you may want to ensure that the skip does not prevent access to your garage.
No matter what the case may be, provide the details when you place your order, and we will make sure your directions are passed on to the lorry driver.
Can I stack up waste in my skip?
I’m afraid not. You can only fill up your skip up to the level load line. Stacking rubbish up above this line will make it dangerous to move, and you could be told to remove the extra waste before your skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Stevenage?
This will depend on where the skip will be located. You will only need to have a permit when it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit when your skip will be on your private property, such as a drive or within your business premises.
If you have to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us during the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place your skip on your own land, it will save you some money.
What kinds of rubbish am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?
This is amongst the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. The main thing to remember is that you can load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are so many kinds of rubbish that can come from garden work, construction work and property clearances.
Among the most typical items that we find in our skips include dirt, timber, tree trimmings, kitchen cabinets, toilets, and other household items.
However, there are some materials that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This consists of any electronic products (fridges, monitors or laptops for example), tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all classed as hazardous waste, and getting rid of them needs to comply with a completely different procedure to ensure they don’t result in damage to the environment.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you manage a business in Stevenage and need to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container might be a great option. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips that you can hire.
As the name indicates, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, in contrast to normal skips, that are picked up using chains.
Will you deliver to other areas in Hertfordshire?
Yes. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to supply skips to both domestic and business customers throughout Hertfordshire and elsewhere within the UK.
Other areas covered include Hoddesdon, Letchworth, Harpenden, Ware, Waltham Cross, Potters Bar, Bishop’s Stortford and Welwyn Garden City.
