Wandsworth Skip Hire FAQs

Can I load up my skip higher than level load line?

You should not fill your skip beyond the level load mark. If you fill it up over the tip of this mark, it means that the skip is not secure to transport, and you may be asked to take off the extra rubbish before it can be collected.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

If you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is great for disposing of heavy building and construction materials, as it can be walked in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop-down door, though these are typically more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally small enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our best to make sure a container which has a drop door is supplied.

Likewise, if the skip is hired to business property, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.

Having said that, if you can’t be around for delivery, don’t worry. We just ask you to tell us when you place your order, and then we will organise everything from there.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

The normal hire time frame is a fortnight from the date of delivery. However, when you book the skip, you can tell us a collection date that is perfect for you. Of course, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if your skip is loaded earlier than anticipated, contact us, and we will get it picked up as quickly as possible.

We can usually make collections within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this may not be possible at busier times. Once collected, the waste will be taken to your local waste transfer facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

What is classed as being a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is the most popular skip which is ordered across the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is great for most building and construction projects, which is where the name stems from.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

Skips come in a wide range of different sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is ideal for small residential jobs.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yard is an excellent option for garage clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to undertake, a builder’s skip might be the most suitable option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name implies, these are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for building waste, like clay and stone. But they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also supply 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For additional details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Am I able to throw all kinds of rubbish in the skip?

Prior to ordering your skip, it is important to make sure that the sort of rubbish you wish to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials must be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

Examples of waste types you can put in your skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You can also use your skip to dispose of building and construction waste, including old bricks, soil, stone, metals and concrete.

Some examples of prohibited items include electrical items, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be disposed of separately from general rubbish.

How long does it take to get a skip in Wandsworth?

We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you complete your order prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we strive to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery site, as unsuccessful deliveries can result in a fee for the wasted journey.

How big is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest skip provided by skip firms and is ideal for small DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms offer a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
