Waltham Forest Skip Hire FAQs
What size is a builders skip?
The name builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. They are the largest skips that can be used to discard heavy building and construction waste materials such as stone, concrete, rubble or soil.
A builders skip is great for a variety of jobs. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing the garage, these big skips are usually the most cost-effective solution available.
How quickly can you deliver a skip in Waltham Forest?
We will ensure your skip will be delivered when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our best to reach you within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You have to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will often incur a fee for the wasted journey.
Will a skip hire company from Waltham Forest deliver my skip?
To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work in partnership with a number of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, as electronic products such as old TVs, cookers, computers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects must be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly way.
How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container that can be used to dispose of significant quantities of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these skips are used for industrial uses. Having said that, domestic customers may also order them. It is essential to think about the space they will take up, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be used for light materials including plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and hardcore.
Do you deliver skips across Greater London?
As well as delivering skips to Waltham Forest, we can also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Greater London. With the help of a network of local and national waste management and recycling companies, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering in Waltham Forest, North West London or Sutton, we have got you covered.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip?
After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre in or local to Waltham Forest where we segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
For those who have a small quantity of rubbish to throw out, a mini skip could be the best choice. What size is known as a mini skip differs from business to business, according to what sizes they provide.
2 cubic yards is considered the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The price is dependent on the specific size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for domestic jobs such as modest DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
How much will skip hire in Waltham Forest cost?
The price of getting a skip in Waltham Forest will depend on the size of skip you want. The lowest priced skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you need a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you want to have your skip positioned on the highway, as you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Is it okay to fill my skip above the level load line?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it unsafe to transport, and you will probably have to empty any contents over the level load line. This means that you can not make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other item, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty to ensure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please be sure you choose the appropriate size of skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you’re uncertain which size is best. We would be pleased to help.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
You can usually keep a skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the collection will be as convenient as possible, there is the choice of offering a preferred collection time when you place your order.
Alternatively, just let us know when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in many cases, it will be the next working day.
It could take a bit longer to pick up your skip over busy times, but we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Waltham Forest, you will have numerous sizes to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, also known as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for small house clearances and DIY work.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also means they are perfect for household tidy ups involving bulky items such as household furniture and beds.
We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even larger waste disposal needs. These skips are only suitable for lightweight waste, so they can’t be hired to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
For more details about the different skip sizes available, such as measurements, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Waltham Forest?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a skip permit when it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if your skip is on your private property, such as a driveway or within your company premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position the skip on your own land, it will save you some pounds.
Will my skip come with a drop door?
Getting a skip that has a drop down door can make loading waste into it a lot easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste such as garden soil and hardcore, which can then be walked directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of big bulky items like pieces of furniture easier as well.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, but this will sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a drop door is required, and we will do our best to provide this.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be in on the day it is delivered. You can then make sure the lorry has total access and that the skip will be situated precisely where you want it. The same is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company property, particularly if gates limit access.
Having said that, if this is not feasible, you do not have to be concerned. Simply let us know when you are making your order, and we will take care of the rest.
What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Waltham Forest?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us whether the skip will be going on private property (a drive, for example) or council property (such as the street). Then, select the day you need the skip to be delivered. Check your order details and then make payment with our secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your skip to Waltham Forest on the day you have selected.
Am I allowed to throw all sorts of waste in my skip?
This is amongst the most common questions people have about our skip hire service. The most important thing to consider is that you may load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of waste that can come from garden work, building work and house clearances.
Some of the most common things which we collect in our skips include soil, wood, hedge trimmings, cabinets, sinks, and other household items.
There are also some materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This consists of any electrical objects (dishwashers, TVs and computers for example), old tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them needs to follow an entirely different procedure to make sure they don’t cause damage to the environment.
