Stratford Skip Hire FAQs
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Stratford?
The cost of getting a skip in Stratford is determined by the size of skip you require. The lowest priced option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you need a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also increase if you need to have your skip on the road, because you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
What is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is the most common skip which is ordered across the country. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is perfect for most building and demolition projects, which is where the name originates from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the largest size which you can use for heavy waste materials including garden soil, concrete, stone and rubble.

Will a Stratford skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Stratford. We make use of a network of both local and nationwide businesses to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These firms are fully vetted to ensure they meet the high principles we demand with regards to service, price and environmental performance.
How long can I hire a skip for?
You can normally have your skip for as long as 2 weeks from the date of delivery. You may provide a chosen pick up day at the time you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us when you have loaded the skip, and we will prepare your collection. In most cases, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer over hectic periods.
How long does it take to get a skip in Stratford?
We will make sure your skip will be provided on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we cannot promise a precise delivery time, we will do our best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You have to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will usually incur a charge for the wasted trip.
Can I put electrical items in my skip?
Electrical items including TVs, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore cannot be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic products need to be separated from other materials. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
Which size skips have a drop door?
Using a skip with a drop down door helps make loading rubbish into the skip much easier. This is especially true with hefty waste like dirt and hardcore, which can then be walked directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make throwing away large bulky items such as household furniture a lot easier also.
The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, although this will sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a door is required, and we will do our very best to supply this.
Can I load the skip higher than the level load line?
It is essential never to overload a skip. You can not pass the level load line that is shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it will become very dangerous to move. Which means that when you overfill your skip, you might be asked to take away the surplus rubbish. However safe you feel the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This can be hazardous and is therefore not allowed.
Can you deliver skips across Greater London?
Along with delivering our range of skips to Stratford, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Greater London. By utilising our network of regional and national waste management and recycling businesses, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Stratford, Lewisham or Pinner, we have got you covered.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into the various waste streams, such as timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
No, you do not have to be at home when we deliver the skip. Providing we can gain access to the place you want it delivered, we will manage everything.
In case you are not going to be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when placing your order. For instance, you might prefer the skip to be dropped on a particular part of your drive. Alternatively, you may need to make sure the skip does not hinder access to your garage.
Whatever the case may be, provide the information when you place your order, and we will ensure the instructions are passed to the delivery driver.

What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in the skip?
Before hiring your skip, you must ensure that the kind of waste you wish to discard is allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Waste types it is possible to throw in your skip include home items like furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You may also use your skip to discard building and construction rubbish, such as wood, top soil, rubble, metals and gravel.
Examples of forbidden items include things like electronic products, tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. These are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently must be disposed of separately from general waste.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Stratford?
In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you want the skip to be situated on land outside of your business or residence, you need to get permission from the local authority in Stratford, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we would be happy to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for the road permit, plus you should know before placing your order that getting the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.
How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are ideal for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and broken toys to paving slabs and garden soil. Having a capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip will save you having to make several journeys to the local recycling centre.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you operate a company in Stratford and need to dispose of large quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a great choice. Available in 20 – 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the label indicates, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike regular skips, which are picked up by using chains.
