Surbiton Skip Hire FAQs
Where will the waste go when the skip is collected?
The waste in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling centre. Here the waste will be segregated by machinery and by hand into various waste materials, like metal, paper, concrete and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.
Do you deliver skips across Greater London?
Yes. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we are able to supply skips to residential and business customers throughout Greater London and anywhere else within the UK.
Is it possible to have a skip with a drop door?
Generally, nearly all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, depending on the size, availability and area. If you require a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial if hiring a large builder’s skip, as it allows you to wheelbarrow waste into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini and midi skips, as they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How long can I hire a skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. In most cases, that will provide you with sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, if you finish with the skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.
Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Surbiton?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only require a permit if it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if the skip is on your private property, like a driveway or within your business premises.
If you have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can place the skip on your own land, it will save you a few pounds.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Surbiton?
A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in Surbiton. We make use of a network of both regional and nationwide providers to enable us to provide our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are thoroughly vetted to ensure they meet the high expectations we demand when it comes to service, cost and environmental performance.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a substantial container that is used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These skips are predominantly for commercial use but can be used by household customers also. Having said that, you will want a good amount of room since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger compared to the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
As a result of the size, these skips should only be used for light-weight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not appropriate for getting rid of soil and rubble.
What things can I put in the skip?
You can put a wide array of waste into the skip. This includes wood, ceramic tiles, metal or rubble from a house clearance. Plant and bush clippings, soil and stone from garden work is allowed as well. Cupboards and worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be thrown in a skip.
There are, however, some materials that can’t be put in a skip due to the possible ecological or health risks they could trigger.
You can’t throw in your freezer, printer or your old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things include hazardous materials in one form or another. They should be discarded separately from your general waste.
If you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to organise a separate service for this material. Please contact us for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is delivered?
It usually is best if you can be available when anyone delivers anything to your house. You can then make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be positioned just where you want it.
The same applies for those who have a business. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
How many different skip sizes are there?
We can offer a wide selection of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip excellent for modest DIY projects and domestic clearances. A common choice for larger jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard skip.
For Surbiton companies which generate a significant volume of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact skip provided by skip firms and is perfect for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies offer a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, as electrical products such as old televisions, fridge freezers, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly fashion.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Surbiton?
Hiring a skip shouldn’t be difficult. This is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, type in your postcode to look at all the different skip sizes we can deliver to Surbiton. Select the size you want to order, and confirm if it is going to be located on private property. Enter your details and then make payment using our secure payment platform.
When your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
What is classed as a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most often supplied for building work. There are generally two different sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to dispose of large volumes of construction and demolition waste, including dirt, rubble and rock.
Although labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for multiple other household and business waste disposal tasks.
How long does it take to get a skip in Surbiton?
We will make sure your skip is delivered when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.
Although we cannot guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You have to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will often incur a fee for the wasted trip.
Can I fill the skip higher than the side?
I’m afraid not. You can only load the skip up to the level load line. Piling rubbish up above this line would make it unsafe to move, and you may be told to get rid of the surplus waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Surbiton?
This depends upon the skip size you require and whether you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the cheapest option. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.
