Can a skip be dropped on a road in Walton-on-Thames?
In most cases, it will be possible to have the skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But in order to do this, you have got to get consent from your local authority in Walton-on-Thames, which is called a skip permit. We are able to arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for this permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
What kinds of waste can I get rid of in a skip?
A skip can be hired to get rid of lots of different types of waste. We are experienced in collecting and handling numerous materials generated from construction work, garden landscaping and home clearances. Some examples of permitted waste materials include things like:
- Home furnishings
- Hedge trimmings
- Top soil
- Bricks and rubble
- Bathroom suites
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Most materials will be accepted, therefore whether you need to dispose of furniture, plastic materials, wood or unwanted toys, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The volume and items you throw in your skip can vary according to which size skip you chosen. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you need to get rid of top soil and rubble, as an example, the biggest size you will be permitted to hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Are there items which I can’t put in the skip?
There are a few items that you are not permitted to discard in your skip. The reason behind this is that some goods contain hazardous elements that may harm the environment. They can even be hazardous to human health, therefore they have to be disposed of separately within UK regulations.
A few of the goods that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- PC screens
- Battery packs
Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be at home at the time the skip is delivered. You can then ensure that the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip is placed precisely where you want it. The same is true if you have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly if gates restrict access.
On the other hand, if this is not achievable, you do not have to stress. Simply tell us when you are making your booking, and we will take care of the rest.
Where does the rubbish be taken to when the skip is collected?
When you have finished filling up your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste recycling centre in or local to Walton-on-Thames where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Walton-on-Thames?
We use a network of both local and national skip hire firms to supply skips to our clients in Walton-on-Thames and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner firms are verified and tested to make sure they meet our expectations for price, service, recycling rates and reliability.
What is the cost of skip hire in Walton-on-Thames?
The cost of hiring a skip in Walton-on-Thames will depend on the size of skip you need. The least expensive option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you need a bigger skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you need to have a skip placed on the highway, as you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Do you deliver skips across Surrey?
Along with delivering our range of skips to Walton-on-Thames, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Surrey. With the help of our network of local and national waste management companies, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to Walton-on-Thames, Chertsey or Warlingham, we have got you covered.
Is it okay to load the skip higher than the top?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it unsafe to transport, and you will have to empty any materials over the level load mark. This means you can not use sheets of wood, doors or some other object, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal obligation to make sure that bins aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure you order the correct size of skip to meet your requirements and get in touch if you are unsure which size you require. We will be glad to help.
What is the size of a builders skip?
The builders skip is regarded as the popular skip which is ordered across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builders skip is fantastic for most building tasks, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 yd builders skip is the largest option which can be used for heavy waste such as dirt, concrete, rock and rubble.
How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
For those who have a small quantity of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip may be the best option. What size is referred to as a mini skip is different from business to business, based on what sizes they have.
The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 cubic yard skip for their smallest option. Cost is dependent on the actual size you order, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are great for domestic tasks like modest DIY projects and garden clean ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
How long does it take to get a skip in Walton-on-Thames?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your booking before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver 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 ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery site, as failed deliveries will result in a fee for the wasted journey.
Am I able to get rid of electrical items in my skip?
I’m afraid not, as electronic products like old televisions, cookers, pcs and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects need to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly way.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
Our regular hire term will be two weeks from the delivery date. Having said that, at the time you order the skip, you can let us know a collection date that is best for you. Of course, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is full sooner than anticipated, contact us, and we will pick it up as quickly as possible.
Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to keep in mind that this may not be possible during busier periods. Once collected, the waste will be taken to your local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed and sorted.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
If you manage a company in Walton-on-Thames and wish to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips on the market.
As the name indicates, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike standard skips, that are picked up using chains.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Virtually all skips can be delivered with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the bin, especially with heavy materials, like garden soil and bricks, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, like pieces of furniture.
