Walthamstow Skip Hire FAQs
Will you deliver skips across Greater London?
In addition to delivering skips and containers to Walthamstow, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Greater London. With the help of a network of regional and national skip businesses, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering in Walthamstow, Northwood or Wandsworth, we have got you covered.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Walthamstow?
A local skip hire company will likely deliver your skip in Walthamstow. We work with a network of both local and national providers to allow us to offer our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These firms are vetted to ensure they match the high standards we require when it comes to customer service, cost and environmental performance.
Can I load up my skip above the side?
No. You can only pack the skip up to the level load line. Piling rubbish up over this line would make it unsafe to transport, and you could be asked to get rid of the extra waste before your skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge commercial size skips used mainly in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for organisations that generate large volumes of waste materials.
What types of waste materials can I put in a skip?
It is possible to throw a wide array of waste into the skip. This can include timber, tile, metal or rubble from a house clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, dirt and stone from garden jobs are allowed also. Cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be discarded in a skip.
There are, however, some items that can’t be put in a skip a result of the possible environment or health risks they can trigger.
You can not throw in your fridge freezer, computer or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things incorporate hazardous materials in one kind or another. They need to be disposed of separately from normal rubbish.
Should you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to schedule a separate collection for this material. Please contact us for further details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
What happens to the waste?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into a number of waste streams, which includes stone, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
How big is a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most frequently used for building and demolition projects. There are typically two different skip sizes that may be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to get rid of substantial volumes of construction and demolition waste materials, such as dirt, rubble and rock.
Although they are labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for a number of other residential and business waste disposal tasks.
What is the cost of skip hire in Walthamstow?
To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Walthamstow, enter your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you the sizes we provide in your town and how much each one will cost you to order. If the skip will be on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also have to be factored in.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we deliver the skip. Provided that we are able to access the place you need it located, we can take care of it all.
When you will not be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you place your order. For example, you might need the skip to be located at a particular side of your property. Or you might want to ensure that the skip does not block entry to your garage.
No matter what the case may be, simply let us know when you place your order, and then we will ensure your directions are passed on to the lorry driver.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Walthamstow?
This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only require a permit if it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit when your skip will be on your private property, like a drive or within your business premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, so we can make the required arrangements with your local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place your skip on private property, it will save you a few pounds.
What skip sizes will have a drop door?
Using a skip with a drop down door will make loading waste into it a lot easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste materials like dirt or concrete, which can then be loaded into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up big bulky objects such as furniture easier too.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop door, however it will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Walthamstow, you have several sizes to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for modest domestic clearances and DIY jobs.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most frequent sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their substantial capacity also means they are perfect for household tidy ups including large items such as furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for those with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These containers are only suited to light materials, so they cannot be used to get rid of soil or concrete.
For more information regarding the various capacities offered, such as proportions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
What size is the mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household rubbish, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to handle numerous jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most frequently chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, this will provide you with plenty of time to fill the skip. However, if you need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, if you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just tell us once you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.
How do you hire a skip in Walthamstow?
Ordering a skip shouldn’t be difficult. This is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter in your delivery postcode to view the range of skip sizes we are able to deliver to Walthamstow.

Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
Electric powered items like television sets, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste and therefore cannot be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic products have to be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
How long does it take to get a skip in Walthamstow?
We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery area, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will result in a fee for the wasted journey.
