Tilbury Skip Hire FAQs

Am I able to throw electronic products in the skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods must be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electrical goods including cookers, monitors, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

Our regular hire period is two weeks from the delivery date. Having said that, at the time you book your skip, you can select a collection date that is ideal for you. Obviously, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is fully loaded earlier than expected, tell us, and we will collect it at the earliest opportunity.

We can usually be out to get your skip within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to understand that this may not always be possible during busier periods. Once collected, the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

What is the process of ordering a skip in Tilbury?

Ordering a skip in Tilbury through us is very easy. Select the skip size you need and then enter a handful of details about when and where you want your skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then prepare to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

Will you deliver to other areas in Essex?

Absolutely. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we can supply skips to household and commercial customers across Essex and elsewhere within the UK.

Will a Tilbury skip hire company deliver my skip?

We use a large network of both local and national skip hire firms to supply skips to our customers in Tilbury and the rest of the country. Each of our partner companies are approved and evaluated to make sure they satisfy our expectations for cost, service, recycling and reliability.

Where will the rubbish go when the skip is collected?

When you have finished filling up your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer station in or local to Tilbury where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

How much will skip hire in Tilbury cost?

This is determined by the skip size you want and whether you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the least expensive option. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.

What is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to handle many jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be located on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit.

Although most commonly hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.

Is it ok to load up the skip above the side?

No. You must only load the skip up to the level load mark. Loading waste materials up above this line will make it unsafe to transport, and you might be told to take away the excess waste before your skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips are offered in a wide range of different sizes to match various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is great for small domestic tasks.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is an excellent option for garage clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to tackle, a builder’s skip might be the best choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name suggests, they are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, including soil and stone. But they can just as well be used for household rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also provide 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For further info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

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

It is always a good idea to be available when anybody delivers something to your property. That allows you to make sure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it.

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

How soon can you deliver a skip in Tilbury?

We can typically supply skips to Tilbury the next working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking program offers you various delivery dates to select from. So whether you want the skip to arrive asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.

How big is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge commercial size skips that are used primarily within the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for organisations that generate large volumes of waste materials.

What things can I put in the skip?

You are able to fill up the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from home clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include wood, top soil, concrete, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you throw in the skip will depend on which skip size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, when you are using a skip for heavy building waste like stone or dirt, the largest size you would be able to get is an 8 cubic yard.

Some materials can not be discarded in the skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.

If I require a skip on a road in Tilbury, will I need to get a permit?

In most cases, it is possible to get the skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to do this, you will need to have consent from your local council in Tilbury, which is called a skip permit. We will arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for this permit, and it will sometimes take 24-2 days for them to approve this.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yd skip. The term originates from the fact that these are the most common sizes ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial containers are perfect for numerous types of household and industrial jobs. They are the largest size skips which you can use for hefty builders waste including soil, rubble and concrete.

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

Nearly all skip sizes can be delivered with a drop door, making them easy to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the skip, especially with heavy materials, like dirt and rubble, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load large and bulky items, such as furniture.

Other areas covered include Corringham, Basildon, Chipping Ongar, Brentwood, Epping, Clacton-on-Sea, Walton-on-the-Naze and Manningtree.
