Wadhurst Skip Hire FAQs
How long does it take to get a skip in Wadhurst?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We can usually give you a following day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, because to go on public property (like a highway), you will have to gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.
Due to many factors that can impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it turning up in a AM or PM slot.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Wadhurst, you will have various sizes to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, also known as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is excellent for modest house clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most common sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also makes them ideal for house tidy ups involving large objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only appropriate for light waste materials, so they can not be used to get rid of soil or stone.
For more details about the different capacities available, including proportions, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?
For anybody who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is designed for disposing of heavy building and construction waste, as it can be pushed in to the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop door, although these are less common. Simply because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our best to make sure a skip which has a drop door is provided.
Am I allowed to put all kinds of rubbish in my skip?
You may use your skip to throw out a variety of waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and handling a multitude of materials produced from construction jobs, garden landscaping and house clean-ups. Examples of allowed waste types include things like:
- Pieces of furniture
- Tree trimmings
- Bricks and rubble
- Bathroom sinks
- Cabinets and units
The majority of waste materials are usually permitted, therefore whether you need to get rid of metals, plastics, timber or fabric, we can normally take your waste away.
The quantity and waste types you throw into the skip may vary according to the size skip you hired. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you need to discard garden soil and bricks, for example, the largest size you would be allowed to use will be the 8 yard skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?
There are a few materials that you will not be permitted to throw out in the skip. The reason for this is that some goods include hazardous components which may be harmful to the environment. They can even be harmful to human health, therefore they must be discarded separately under UK legislation.
Some of the things that are restricted include:
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- Computer screens
- Car tyres
What is a builders skip?
The name builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. They are the biggest containers used to get rid of heavy building waste materials such as stone, concrete, gravel or soil.
A builders skip is great for a wide range of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out the loft space, these big skips are often the most cost-effective solution available.
Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Wadhurst?
Preferably, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface. For anyone who is carrying out a residential project, then the driveway will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public property, you will need to obtain a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be located on the street, grass verge or other public property in Wadhurst. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be issued on your behalf. An additional fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.
Is it okay to fill up the skip above the top?
It is important not to overload a skip, as you run the risk of being told to remove excess waste before it can be collected. Regardless of the size you order, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, since transporting an overloaded skip will be dangerous, as materials could fall and cause personal injury or damage to other people.
To avoid this situation, please be sure you hire a size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full but you have additional waste to get rid of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
Can you deliver to other areas in East Sussex?
Yes. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we can provide skips to residential and industrial customers across East Sussex and elsewhere within the UK.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest size available from skip firms and is great for small DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip firms provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be at home when we deliver the skip. Providing we can access the place you need it positioned, we will manage everything.
In case you are not going to be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when placing the order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be positioned on a particular part of the property. Or you may want to ensure the skip does not block entry to your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, provide the information when you place your order, and then we will ensure your directions will be passed to the delivery driver.
What will happen to my waste when the skip is collected?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into different waste materials, including wood, metals, plastics, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How much does skip hire in Wadhurst cost?
This depends upon the size you will need and if you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the cheapest option. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings.

Can I throw electronic items in my skip?
No, you can not dispose of old or broken electronic waste products in a skip. This can include things like computers, hobs, dishwashers, freezers and television sets. Electronic objects can’t be disposed of in a skip because they can include hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you operate a business in Wadhurst and want to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container may be a perfect choice. Available in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the label implies, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, as opposed to normal skips, which are lifted by using chains.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Wadhurst?
We use a network of both regional and national skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our clients in Wadhurst and the rest of the country. Each of our partner firms are verified and evaluated to make certain they match our expectations for cost, service, recycling and reliability.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, this provides you with sufficient time to load your skip. However, if you need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, if you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just let us know once you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.
