Twickenham Skip Hire FAQs
Will you deliver skips across Greater London?
Yes. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to deliver skips to both household and commercial customers throughout Greater London and anywhere else in the UK.
What will happen to the waste in my skip?
The waste in your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer centre. Here the rubbish will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into various waste materials, such as metal, cardboard, concrete and wood. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We will usually offer a next day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (for example a road), you will need to gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it arriving within a morning or afternoon slot.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Twickenham?
This will depend on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if your skip is on your private property, such as a driveway or within your company premises.
If you need to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, and we can make the required arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate your skip on private property, you will save some money.
What is the cost of skip hire in Twickenham?
This will depend on the skip size you will need and if you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the lowest priced option. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used primarily in commercial settings.

Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
No, you cannot put old electrical waste products in your skip. This includes things such as printers, cookers, tumble dryers, freezers and television sets. Electric items can’t be discarded in your skip as they can include dangerous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
What size skips can you deliver?
We can supply 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 great for small DIY jobs and household clearances. A common choice for bigger projects, renovations and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Twickenham companies with a big volume of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How long can I hire a skip for?
You can generally hire the skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, you will have the option of giving a preferred collection time when making your order.
Alternatively, just let us know when you have finished loading up the skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the following working day.
It may take a little while longer to collect your skip during busy times, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.
Am I allowed to fill the skip higher than the side?
No, you are only allowed to fill the skip up to the level load mark. Loading waste materials up over this line makes it unsafe to move, and you might be asked to get rid of the excess waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.
What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Twickenham?
Hiring a skip in Twickenham through us is incredibly straightforward. Pick the skip size you require and then input a few details about when and where you would like your skip to be delivered. You then pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered.
Which size skips have a door?
In general, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you want a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip with a drop door is mainly beneficial if hiring a large builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow rubbish into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What types of rubbish am I able to put in a skip?
A skip can be used to dispose of lots of different types of waste. We are experienced in collecting and handling a multitude of materials generated from building work, garden projects and house clearances. Some examples of permitted waste materials include:
- Home furniture
- Tree cuttings
- Top soil
- Bathroom toilets and sinks
- Cabinets and units
Most waste materials will be allowed, therefore whether you would like to discard metals, plastics, timber or textiles, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The volume and things you put into the skip will vary based on which size skip you ordered. All skips do have a weight limit for safety reasons. So to be able to dispose of garden soil and gravel, for example, the largest size container you will be able to hire will be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?
There are several materials which you are not able to dump in your skip. The reason behind this is that these goods contain hazardous materials which could cause damage to the environment. They can even be hazardous to human health, and so they need to be discarded separately under UK laws.
A few examples of the items which are restricted include:
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas cylinders
- PC monitors
- Chemical substances
Do I have to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be home when your skip is being delivered, however it does help. Being in whenever the skip is delivered means you can make sure the driver can be given complete access and that the skip will be positioned exactly where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is being delivered to your business premises, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
However, in the event you can’t be around for delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you place your order, and we will arrange everything from there.
How large is a mini skip?
When you have a small quantity of rubbish to throw out, a mini skip may be the ideal choice. What size is described as a mini skip varies from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they supply.
The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to have a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. The price is dependent on the actual size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are best for residential tasks such as small DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
Will a Twickenham skip hire company deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both regional and national skip hire companies to supply skips to our customers in Twickenham and the rest of the country. Our partner skip hire companies are approved and tested to make sure they match our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
How big is a builders skip?
The phrase builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The term stems from the fact that these are the most common sizes that are hired by builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are suited to a wide variety of household and industrial projects. These are the largest size skips which you can use for heavy builders waste like dirt, rubble and concrete.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?
