Waltham Abbey Skip Hire FAQs

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are perfect for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.

They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furniture and broken baby toys to paving slabs and soil. Having a capacity of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make several trips to the local recycling centre.

How do I hire a skip in Waltham Abbey?

This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you wish to hire. Let us know if the skip shall be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (like the street). Next, choose the date you need your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Waltham Abbey on the date you have chosen.

Do I need to be there when the skip is going to be delivered?

It is always a good idea to be available when anyone delivers something to your home. That allows you to ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be placed exactly where you need it.

The same goes for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.

However, should it be unavoidable and access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.

Will my skip come with a drop down door?

If you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop door. This is great for disposing of heavy building and demolition rubbish, as it can be pushed in the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop door, however these are generally less common. Simply because these sizes are typically low enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to ensure a container which has a drop door is provided.

How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?

The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the biggest containers that can be hired to get rid of heavy building and demolition waste such as rock, bricks, gravel or clay.

The builders skip is perfect for a wide range of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing out your garage, these big containers are often the most cost-effective choice available.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, that provides you with sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, should you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just tell us when you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.

How much will skip hire in Waltham Abbey cost?

Our aim is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Waltham Abbey. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have a skip situated on the highway or other council property, you will also have to factor in the additional expense of a skip permit.

Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Waltham Abbey?

Preferably, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. For anyone who is carrying out a residential project, then your driveway is going to be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you will need to obtain a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Waltham Abbey. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be granted for you. An extra charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

Am I able to put all kinds of rubbish in my skip?

You can use a skip to dispose of many different waste types. We are experienced in picking up and handling a wide variety of materials produced from construction jobs, garden landscaping and home clearances. A few examples of permitted waste types include things like:

  • Home furnishings
  • Hedge cuttings
  • Garden soil
  • Bricks
  • Bathroom suites
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

The majority of waste types will be accepted, so whether you want to dispose of furniture, plastics, wood or old toys, we can normally take your waste away.

The volume and materials you put in the skip can vary based on the size skip you have chosen. All skips have a weight limit for safety reasons. So to be able to get rid of garden soil and gravel, as an example, the biggest size you would be allowed to hire would be the 8 cubic yard skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?

There are several waste materials that you are not permitted to throw out in your skip. The reason behind this is that some products incorporate hazardous elements that may damage the environment. They can also be dangerous to human health, so they need to be disposed of separately under UK regulations.

A few examples of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • PC screens
  • Battery packs
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Am I allowed to fill the skip higher than level load line?

It is important never to overload your skip. You should not pass the level load mark that is shown on the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it will become very dangerous to move. Which means that if you overfill your skip, you might be asked to take off the surplus rubbish. Regardless of how safe you think the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the waste. That is unsafe and is not allowed.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?

Electrical products including tv sets, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste stream and so should not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered products should be separated from other materials. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

A common option for larger projects, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

What will happen to the waste in my skip?

If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into various waste types, such as stone, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

When will the skip be delivered to me?

Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it to you on a date that suits you. We will usually offer a following day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, since to go on public property (like a road), you will need to get a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to many factors that may impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it turning up within a morning or afternoon slot.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

The roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a huge container that can be used to get rid of large quantities of waste. These bins are predominantly for commercial use but can be used by residential clients also. Having said that, you will need lots of space because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger compared to the typical skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, these containers should only be hired for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suited to disposing of soil and rubble.
