Wallingford Skip Hire FAQs
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big commercial size skips used primarily in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for companies that generate large amounts of waste.
How do you order a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on council property (like the street). Then, choose the day you would like your skip to get delivered. Check your order details and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. All done! We will deliver your skip to Wallingford on the date you have selected.
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can normally keep your skip for as many as 14 days from your delivery date. It is possible to provide a chosen collection day when you place your order. Otherwise, you can tell us when you have finished with the skip, and then we will arrange the collection. Usually, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take a little longer during busy periods.
Do I have to be there whenever the skip is delivered?
No, you don’t need to be at home when we deliver the skip. As long as we are able to gain access to where you need it located, we will manage everything.
For those who are not going to be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when booking the order. For instance, you might prefer the skip to be positioned at a particular side of the drive. Alternatively, you may need to make sure the skip doesn’t obstruct use of your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, provide the information when ordering, and we will make sure your directions are passed on to the delivery driver.
How fast can you deliver a skip to Wallingford?
We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we strive to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery area, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will lead to a fee for the wasted journey.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are fantastic for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furniture and broken baby toys to paving slabs and rubble. With a total capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make numerous trips to the local recycling centre.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
This site offers a whole selection of skip sizes to household and business clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the enormous 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the different sizes available, with a rough idea of the amount of waste each size can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
- 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate from general waste to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This includes all electric powered goods including tumble dryers, monitors, kettles, computers and even hair straighteners.
Is it ok to fill the skip above level load mark?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this makes it dangerous to move, and you will probably have to remove any rubbish over the level load mark. This means that you are unable to use sheets of wood, doors or any other object, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal obligation to make sure that bins are not overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please be sure you order the correct size of skip for your needs and get in contact if you are unsure which size is best. We would be glad to help.

What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into various waste streams, including wood, metals, paper, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What is classed as a builder’s skip?
The phrase builders skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The term stems from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These substantial skips are suited to a multitude of household and industrial jobs. These are the largest sizes which you can use for weighty builders waste like garden soil, stone and concrete.
What can I put in the skip?
You are allowed to fill the skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly produced from home clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, soil, concrete, garden trimmings, household furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you put in your skip will depend on the skip size you have ordered, because there is a weight restriction. For example, when you are using your skip for heavy building wastes like rubble or garden soil, the largest size you would be able to use is an 8 yard skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Wallingford?
In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you want the skip to be located on land outside of your company or house, you have got to get permission from the local authority in Wallingford, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we will gladly arrange this on your behalf, so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the permit, and you should know before placing your order that securing the licence can often take up to 2 working days.
Will the skip have a drop door?
Generally, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, depending on the size, availability and location. If you require a drop down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip that has a drop door is mainly useful if choosing a large builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, as they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Will a Wallingford skip hire company deliver my skip?
As we offer a UK-wide skip service, we use a diverse network of approved businesses. These vary from small local skip hire firms to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental standards.
