What types of waste can I throw in a skip?

Your skip can be hired to discard a variety of types of waste. We are experienced in picking up and processing a multitude of items from construction jobs, garden landscaping and property tidy-ups. Some examples of allowed waste materials include:

  • Furniture
  • Garden trimmings
  • Soil
  • Concrete
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Cabinets and units

Most materials are accepted, therefore whether you need to throw out furniture, plastics, wood or clothing, we can usually take your waste away.

The volume and things you throw in the skip will vary depending on the size skip you chosen. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you need to discard top soil and gravel, as an example, the biggest size container you will be allowed to use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

What kind of items am I not allowed to put in a skip?

There are some items which you are not able to throw out in the skip. The main reason for this is that these products contain hazardous components which may damage the environment. They may also be harmful to human health, so they must be disposed of separately under UK laws.

A few examples of the items that are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC monitors
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips are offered in a variety of different sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small domestic jobs.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great choice for loft clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to take on, a builder’s skip may be the best choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name implies, they are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, like clay and stone. However they can just as well be hired for domestic waste such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also offer 10-16 cubic yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For additional details about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Who will deliver my skip?

We utilise a large network of both local and national skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our clients in Steyning and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner companies are approved and evaluated to guarantee they meet our expectations for price, service, recycling and reliability.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?

It is usually best if you can be in when anyone delivers something to your house. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it.

The same applies if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.

However, should it be unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.

Am I able to get a skip that has a drop door?

Generally speaking, the majority of skips can be supplied with a hinged door, depending on size, availability and location. If you require a drop door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful if you are choosing a large builder’s skip, as it enables you to wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini and midi skips, as they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you offer?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container used to transport significant amounts of waste. Primarily, these skips are hired for commercial purposes. Having said that, household clients may also hire them. It is important to take into account the space they take up, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be used for light materials including plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of dirt and stone.

Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Steyning?

Ideally, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface. If you are carrying out a domestic task, then the drive is going to be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. Having said that, if neither is available, the road or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public land, you have got to have a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Steyning. If this is needed, we will request the license to be issued for you. An extra charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, this will provide you with plenty of time to fill up the skip. However, if you need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Of course, should you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just tell us once you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.

Can you deliver skips across West Sussex?

We provide a UK wide skip hire and waste management service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local partners. So whether you need skip hire in Steyning, Bognor Regis, Shoreham-by-Sea, Midhurst or another location in West Sussex, we are able to help.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ensure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.

Although we can’t guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our very best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

It is important to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will usually incur a fee for the wasted journey.

Is it okay to fill my skip higher than the level load mark?

You must not fill up a skip beyond the level load line. When you load it over the tip of this mark, it means that your skip is not safe and secure to move, and you may be asked to take off any extra rubbish prior to it being collected.

Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects have to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric products such as washing machines, televisions, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.

What happens to the waste in my skip?

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get segregated into several different waste streams, which includes wood, metals and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

What is classed as being a builders skip?

As the name indicates, a builders skip means the size of skip most commonly hired for building jobs. There are generally two skip sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to get rid of substantial quantities of construction and demolition materials, including garden soil, rubble and rock.

Even though they are branded a builders skip, these can of course be used for multiple other residential and industrial waste disposal jobs.

How do I hire a skip in Steyning?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip will be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (such as the road). After that, choose the date you want the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. Job done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Steyning on the date you have chosen.

How large is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small containers are great for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.

They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and old toys to paving slabs and rubble. With a total capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make several visits to the local recycling centre.

Other areas covered include Bognor Regis, Shoreham-by-Sea, Midhurst, Haywards Heath, Crawley, Cuckfield, Burgess Hill and Southwick.
