Sunbury Skip Hire FAQs
Am I able to put electrical products in the skip?
Unfortunately not, since electrical items including old televisions, refrigerators, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly way.
What is the cost of skip hire in Sunbury?
Our goal is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in Sunbury. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip positioned on the highway or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the extra price of a skip permit.
Where will the rubbish go when the skip is picked up?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste gets separated into a number of waste types, which includes timber, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the collection is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
How long will it take to get a skip in Sunbury?
We can in most cases supply skips to Sunbury the next working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking platform offers you a variety of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you want your skip delivered asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
What types of waste materials can I put in my skip?
Before hiring a skip, it is important to check that the type of rubbish you want to dispose of is allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials have to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types you may put in your skip include household items like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use a skip to dispose of building and demolition waste, including timber, dirt, rubble, metals and gravel.
Some examples of forbidden items include things like electronic products, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be discarded separately from general rubbish.
Can I load up the skip higher than the side?
It is important never to overload a skip. You can not pass the level load line that is indicated on the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it will become very hazardous to transport. This means that if you overload your skip, you might be required to take away the excess rubbish. However secure you think the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be dangerous and is prohibited.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can normally have a skip for as many as 2 weeks from your date of delivery. You are able to provide a chosen collection date when you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can tell us when you have finished, and we will plan your collection. In most cases, this will be the following working day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer during busy times.
Do I have to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
It usually is a good idea to be available when anyone delivers anything to your house. You can then ensure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be placed exactly where you need it.
The same thing applies for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large commercial size skips used predominantly within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for companies that generate significant volumes of waste.

Which size skips will have a drop down door?
Using a skip that has a drop down door can make loading rubbish into the skip so much easier.

It will also make throwing away big bulky items such as pieces of furniture much easier also.

In most cases, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace.

If required, we would gladly organise this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less issue to worry about. The council does charge a fee for your skip permit, and you should know before placing your order that getting the licence will often take up to two working days.
What is a builder’s skip?
The phrase builders skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The term comes from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.
