Ware Skip Hire FAQs
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Ware?
Our aim is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Ware. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip that you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have a skip placed on the highway or other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the added expense of a skip permit.
Am I allowed to load the skip above the level load mark?
You should not load a skip past the level load line. When you load it above the tip of this level, it means that the skip is not safe and secure to transport, and you may be asked to take off the extra waste before it can be collected.
How do you order a skip in Ware?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you wish to hire. Let us know if the skip shall be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or public property (like the street). After that, choose the day you need the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment with our secure online payment platform. That is it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Ware on the date you have selected.
What sizes do skips come in?
We are able to provide a wide selection of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip great for modest DIY projects and domestic clearances. A popular option for bigger jobs, renovations and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Ware firms which produce a significant amount of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The phrase builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The term comes from the fact that they are the most common sizes hired by builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are perfect for numerous types of residential and commercial tasks. These are the biggest skip sizes that you can use for weighty builders waste including soil, stone and concrete.
What waste materials can I put in the skip?
You are able to throw a variety of rubbish into the skip. This includes timber, ceramic tiles, plastics or concrete from a property clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, dirt and stone from garden jobs are permitted also. Worktops and units from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be thrown in your skip.
There are, however, some items that you can’t put in a skip a result of the possible environmental or health risk they could trigger.
You cannot get rid of your fridge, computer or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things contain hazardous components in one type or another. They need to be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
Should you need hazardous waste removal, we might be able to arrange an independent service for this waste. Please email us for more details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
If you have a small quantity of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip could be the best solution. What size is known as a mini skip differs from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they supply.
The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. Price depends on the specific size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for residential tasks like modest DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
Will the skip have a drop down door?
In general, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Having a skip with a drop door is primarily helpful if you are choosing a large builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow your waste into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Can I dispose of electronic items in the skip?
No, you can not dispose of old or broken electronic waste items in your skip. This can include things such as printers, microwaves, tumble dryers, freezers and television sets. Electronic objects can’t be disposed of in a skip because they can contain dangerous materials and components.
Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?
A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a massive skip that is used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These skips are mainly for commercial use but can be hired by household customers too. However, you will require plenty of space as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger in comparison to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.
Due to the size, roro skips can only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suited to disposing of soil and rubble.
How long can I keep a skip for?
The standard hire term is 2 weeks from your date of delivery. Having said that, at the time you order your skip, you can tell us a collection date that is ideal for you. Obviously, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is fully loaded earlier than expected, tell us, and we will pick it up as soon as possible.
We will normally be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. However, it is important to bear in mind this may not always be possible at busy times. Once collected, the waste will be transported to your local waste recycling facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Ware?
If at all possible, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. For anybody who is carrying out a household task, then a driveway is going to be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. Having said that, if neither is available, the street or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public property, you need to get a permit from your local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be positioned on a street, grass verge as well as other public property in Ware. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be issued on your behalf. An additional charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
Will a skip hire company from Ware deliver my skip?
To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work in partnership with a variety of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we can provide customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will make sure your skip will be provided when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the next day.
Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to reach you within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You should make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will normally incur a fee for the wasted journey.
Can you deliver to other areas in Hertfordshire?
Along with delivering skips to Ware, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Hertfordshire. Through a network of local and national waste management businesses, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to Ware, Sawbridgeworth or Hemel Hempstead, we have got it covered.
What happens to the waste?
Once you have finished with your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre in or local to Ware where we separate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is delivered?
It is always a good idea to be available when anyone delivers something to your house. You can then ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be located precisely where you want it.
The same goes for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
