Waltham Cross Skip Hire FAQs
Is it okay to pile up the waste in my skip?
You should not fill your skip past the level load line. If you fill it up over the tip of this level, it means your skip will not be secure to move, and you can be asked to remove the excess waste prior to it being picked up.
What will happen to the waste in my skip?
When you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste recycling station in or local to Waltham Cross where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
Am I able to put all kinds of rubbish in a skip?
This is amongst the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. What is important to consider is that you may fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of rubbish that could result from garden work, construction work and household clearances.
Among the most typical things which we see in skips include dirt, wood, hedge trimmings, cupboards, toilets, and various household products.
There are some things that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This consists of any electronic objects (fridges, televisions and computers for example), car tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and disposing of them must abide by a completely different procedure to make sure they don’t result in harm to the environment.
Do I have to be home whenever the skip will be delivered?
You don’t have to be home when the skip is going to be delivered, however it will help. Being there when the skip is being delivered means you can make sure the delivery driver is given complete access and that your skip can be dropped exactly where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is being delivered to a business premises, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Even so, in the event you can’t be around at the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you place the order, and we will organise everything from there.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will make sure your skip is provided when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the next day.
Although we are not able to promise an exact delivery time, we will do our best to reach you within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You will need to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will often incur a fee for the wasted journey.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
You can in most cases keep a skip for as long as 14 days from your date of delivery. You are able to give a preferred collection date at the time you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can tell us after you have loaded the skip, and then we will organise your collection. Generally, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer over hectic times.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you operate a company in Waltham Cross and wish to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a great option. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips that are available.
As the label indicates, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike normal skips, which are picked up by using chains.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are perfect for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and broken toys to paving slabs and garden soil. Having a capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make several trips to the local recycling centre.

What is classed as a builders skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The name stems from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are fantastic for numerous types of domestic and commercial projects. They are the biggest skip sizes that can be used for heavy builders waste like soil, stone and bricks.
Will my skip have a drop down door?
The majority of skip sizes can be provided with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the container, especially with weighty materials, such as soil and gravel, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load big and bulky items, like household furniture.
How many different skip sizes are available?
We can offer a full-range of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip excellent for modest DIY jobs and house clearances. A common choice for more substantial jobs, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Waltham Cross firms which generate a big amount of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Waltham Cross?
Generally, it will be possible to get a skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to do this, you will need to get consent from the local council in Waltham Cross, which is called a skip permit. We can arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for the permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
How much does skip hire in Waltham Cross cost?
Our aim is to deliver the cheapest skip hire service in Waltham Cross. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have the skip positioned on the street or other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the additional price of the skip permit.
Will you deliver to other areas in Hertfordshire?
Sure, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skip sizes to locations throughout Hertfordshire, such as Waltham Cross, Royston, Bishop’s Stortford and Welwyn Garden City. So wherever you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Am I allowed to throw electrical products in the skip?
Unfortunately not, since electronic products including old TVs, refrigerators, pcs and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects have to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly manner.
