Wanstead Skip Hire FAQs

What can I put in the skip?

Prior to hiring a skip, you must make sure that the kind of rubbish you intend to discard is allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials need to be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.

Waste types you can put in your skip include household goods like furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use a skip to dispose of building and demolition waste, including timber, dirt, rubble, metals and gravel.

Examples of restricted items include things like electrical items, tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.

When will my skip be delivered?

Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We will typically provide a following day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip on private property, because to be on public property (for example a street), you need to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.

As a result of several factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it arriving within a AM or PM slot.

How long can I hire a skip for?

The normal hire term is 14 days from your delivery date. Having said that, when you order the skip, you can choose a pick up date that is ideal for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is finished with earlier than anticipated, let us know, and we will get it removed at the earliest opportunity.

Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this may not always be possible during busy times. Once collected, your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Wanstead?

We use a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire companies to supply skips to our clients in Wanstead and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner firms are verified and evaluated to guarantee they match our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

Where will the rubbish go when the skip is collected?

The rubbish in the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer facility. Here the contents will be separated by machinery and also by hand into numerous waste materials, such as soil, paper, hardcore and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Wanstead?

The cost of getting a skip in Wanstead is determined by the size of skip you require. The lowest priced option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you require a larger skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you want to have your skip positioned on the highway, since you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?

Nearly all skip sizes can be supplied with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the skip, especially with heavy materials, such as dirt and gravel, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in big and bulky items, such as household furniture.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be in at the time the skip is delivered. You can then ensure that the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip can be situated exactly where you want it. This also applies for those who have a skip delivered to business property, especially when gates limit access.

Having said that, if that isn’t feasible, you do not have to worry. Just tell us when placing your order, and we will take care of the rest.

We provide a UK wide skip hire and recycling service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you would like skip hire in Wanstead, Ruislip, Mitcham, Woolwich or another area in Greater London, we are able to help.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Wanstead?

Ideally, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface area. When you are doing a household task, then a drive will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither is available, the street or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public land, you will need to get a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be dropped on a road, grass verge or other public property in Wanstead. If this is required, we will request the license to be granted for you. An additional fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.

Am I allowed to get rid of electrical items in my skip?

Electric powered objects like televisions, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore can not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered objects need to be segregated from other materials. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly manner.

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

The phrase builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The name originates from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These large skips are suited to numerous types of residential and commercial jobs. These are the largest size skips which you can use for hefty builders waste such as garden soil, stone and gravel.

Is it ok to fill up the skip higher than the top?

It is important not to overfill your skip. You should not pass the level load line that is shown on the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it is very dangerous to transport. This means that if you overload the skip, you could be required to take away the excess rubbish. Regardless of how safe you think the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be dangerous and is not allowed.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you have a business in Wanstead and wish to get rid of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a fantastic option. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers that can be hired.

As the label suggests, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, as opposed to regular skips, which are picked up using chains.

How much waste will fit in a mini skip?

For those who have a small quantity of waste to throw out, a mini skip may be the ideal solution. What size is called a mini skip is different from company to company, depending on what sizes they have.

The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 yard container for their smallest option. Price is dependent on the specific size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are best for domestic work like small DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
