Uxbridge Skip Hire FAQs
Which skip sizes have got a drop door?
The majority of skip sizes can be delivered with a drop door, making them easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you require 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 can make it easier to load waste into the bin, particularly with weighty materials, like soil and bricks, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, like household furniture.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Uxbridge?
This depends upon the size you need and whether you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the lowest priced option. The most costly and largest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings.

By utilising a network of local and national skip hire and recycling companies, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business in Uxbridge, Lambeth or Purley, we have got it covered.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you have requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your order prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver, we strive to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery position, as failed deliveries can result in a charge for a wasted journey.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
The contents of the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling station. Here the waste will be sorted by machinery and by hand into various waste materials, such as soil, paper, stone and wood. Sorting the waste in this way helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

Will a Uxbridge skip hire company deliver my skip?
To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a variety of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we can offer customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
You can normally 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 providing a preferred collection day when making your order.
Alternatively, simply let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the following working day.
It could take a bit longer to collect your skip over busy times, but we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.
Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be in when it is delivered. You can then ensure that the skip lorry has total access and that the skip is located precisely where you want it. This also is true for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, especially when gates limit access.
However, if that is not possible, you do not have to worry. Just let us know when you are making your booking, and then we will handle the rest.
Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?
No, you can not dispose of old or broken electrical waste items in a skip. This includes things like computers, microwaves, dishwashers, fridges and monitors. These objects can’t be discarded in your skip as they can include dangerous materials and components.
Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest skip provided by skip firms and is designed for small DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some firms will offer a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?
The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a substantial skip that is used to dispose of large volumes of waste. These containers are primarily for business use but can be hired by residential clients also. However, you need a lot of room since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger in comparison to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.
As a result of the size, roro containers can only be hired for light-weight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and rubble.
Am I allowed to fill the skip above level load line?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it unsafe to transport, and you will then have to empty any rubbish over the level load mark. This also means that you are not allowed to use sheets of wood, doors or another item, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal responsibility to ensure that containers are not overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure to choose the appropriate size of skip for your needs and get in contact if you are not sure which size you require. We will be happy to help.
Am I able to put all types of waste in my skip?
This is amongst the most frequent questions people have about our service. What is important to remember is that you may fill up your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are so many kinds of waste that can come from garden work, construction work and house clearances.
Among the most frequent items that we find in our skips include dirt, wood, hedge cuttings, cupboards, baths, and various other household products.
There are also some things that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. For example, any electrical products (fridges and freezers, televisions or laptops for example), old car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and getting rid of them must follow a completely different procedure to ensure they don’t result in harm to the environment.
What sizes do skips come in?
Skips come in a number of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small residential tasks.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold roughly 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a great option for garden shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to tackle, a builder’s skip may be the most suitable choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label indicates, these represent the most common sizes used by builders for building waste, like clay and stone. However they can equally well be used for household waste such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.
We can also deliver 10-16 cubic yard containers and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For further info on the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
If I want a skip on the road in Uxbridge, will I need to get a permit?
This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if the skip is on your private property, like a driveway or inside your company premises.
If you need to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on your own property, it will save you a few pounds.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The name builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These are the biggest containers that can be used to dispose of weighty building and demolition materials such as rock, bricks, rubble or garden soil.
A builders skip is ideal for a wide array of jobs. If you are having an extension built, renovating your bathroom or clearing out your loft, these substantial skips are usually the most cost-effective solution available.
