Uckfield Skip Hire FAQs

Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Uckfield?

Generally, it will be possible to have a skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to do this, you must have consent from your local authority in Uckfield, which is known as a skip permit. We can arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council will impose a fee for your license, and it can sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are perfect for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furnishings and old baby toys to paving slabs and bricks. With a volume of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you having to make several visits to the local recycling centre.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Uckfield?

As we provide a UK-wide skip service, we utilise a comprehensive network of approved businesses. These can vary from small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental standards.

How soon can you deliver a skip to Uckfield?

We can usually supply skips to Uckfield the next working day when an order is made before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our online booking system will give you a variety of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you need a skip delivered ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial industrial scale skips that are used mainly within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for companies that produce significant quantities of waste materials.

How can I hire a skip in Uckfield?

This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip is going to be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or local authority property (such as the street). Next, pick the day you need your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. All done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Uckfield on the date you have selected.

Can you deliver to other areas in East Sussex?

Indeed, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skip sizes to locations across East Sussex, such as Uckfield, Bexhill, Wadhurst and Lewes. So regardless of where you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

Is it possible to get a skip with a drop door?

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

A skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the container, particularly with heavy materials, such as soil and gravel, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, such as household furniture.

Am I able to dispose of electronic products in the skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items have to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This includes all electronic products like tumble dryers, TVs, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.

Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?

The contents of the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling station. Here the rubbish will be separated by machines and by hand into various waste materials, like metal, cardboard, hardcore and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

What types of waste materials can I put in my skip?

You are able to fill up the skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly generated from garage clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include timber, soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, household furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you throw in your skip would depend on which size you have ordered, because there is a weight limit. For example, if you are using a skip for heavy building waste such as concrete or top soil, the largest size you could hire is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials should not be discarded in your skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.

How much does skip hire in Uckfield cost?

Our aim is to give you the most affordable skip hire service in Uckfield. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip that you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you need to have a skip positioned on the street or other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the added cost of the skip permit.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the biggest containers that can be used to get rid of weighty construction materials such as rock, bricks, rubble or soil.

A builders skip is great for a variety of jobs. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out the shed, these big skips tend to be the most affordable option available.

Is it okay to fill up the skip above the level load line?

No. You must only load the skip up to the level load mark. Loading waste up over this line will make it dangerous to transport, and you could be asked to take off the extra waste before your skip can be removed. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.

Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be in at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can make sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip will be positioned exactly where you want it. The same applies when you have a skip delivered to business premises, especially when gates limit access.

However, when this isn’t achievable, you don’t need to worry. Simply tell us when placing your order, and we will handle everything.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

You can normally hire a skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, there is the choice of offering a preferred collection date when you make your order.

Otherwise, just tell us when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the next working day.

It could take a little bit longer to collect your skip during busy times, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.

Other areas covered include Bexhill, Wadhurst, Lewes, Brighton and Hove, Peacehaven, Rye, Newhaven and Hailsham.
