Tower Hamlets Skip Hire FAQs
What sort of waste can you get rid of in a skip?
You are allowed to fill your skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly produced from house clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, top soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you put in your skip depends on which skip size you have hired, as there is a weight restriction. For instance, if you are using the skip for heavy building wastes such as stone or garden soil, the biggest size you can use is an 8 yard skip.
Some materials cannot be disposed of in the skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to transport significant quantities of waste. Primarily, these skips are hired for business purposes. However, domestic customers may also use them. You should consider the area they will take up, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they should only be utilised for lightweight waste including plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and rubble.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
A builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These are the biggest skips that can be used to discard substantial construction waste materials such as stone, bricks, gravel or garden soil.
A builder’s skip is great for a wide array of projects. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing the attic, these large skips will often be the most affordable solution available.
Is it ok to stack up waste in my skip?
You must not fill a skip beyond the level load mark. If you fill it above the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be safe and secure to transport, and you might be asked to remove the excess waste prior to it being picked up.
How much does skip hire in Tower Hamlets cost?
Our goal is to offer the lowest priced skip hire service in Tower Hamlets. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip that you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have a skip situated on the road or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the additional price of a skip permit.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be at home at the time it is delivered. You can then be sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip is situated precisely where you want it. This also is true if you have a skip delivered to company property, especially when gates limit access.
On the other hand, if that isn’t feasible, you do not have to stress. Simply tell us when you are placing your booking, and we will take care of everything.
How can I hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you would like to hire. Tell us whether the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or local authority property (such as the street). Then, choose the date you would like your skip to be delivered. Check your order and make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to Tower Hamlets on the day you have chosen.
What size is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household waste, the mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to handle numerous jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most often hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We are able to offer a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip excellent for modest DIY projects and domestic clearances. A common choice for more substantial jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Tower Hamlets businesses which have a big amount of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do you deliver skips across Greater London?
Absolutely. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to deliver skips to domestic and business customers across Greater London and anywhere else in the UK.
Where will the rubbish be taken to when the skip is picked up?
The waste in the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling station. Here the waste will be segregated by machines and also by hand into numerous waste streams, like soil, plastics, rubble and wood. Sorting the waste in this way helps to increase the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is always to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.
What size skips can have a drop door?
Using a skip that has a drop down door makes filling waste into the skip so much easier. This is especially true with hefty materials like garden soil and rubble, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away large bulky objects like household furniture easier also.
Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, however this may sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when placing your booking if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.
If I want a skip on a road in Tower Hamlets, will I need to get a permit?
Preferably, you should have the skip left on to a hard surface area. For anyone who is doing a domestic project, then a driveway will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public land, you will have to have a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be positioned on a road, grass verge as well as other public property in Tower Hamlets. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be issued for you. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip hire firm will likely deliver your skip in Tower Hamlets. We utilize a network of both regional and national providers to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are thoroughly vetted to be sure they match the high standards we demand regarding service, price and environmental performance.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the following day. Sometimes, we can even offer a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed during the online order process.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
Usually, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t have to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.
Can I throw away electronic products in my skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, because electronic items including old televisions, cookers, computers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly fashion.
