Warlingham Skip Hire FAQs
Am I able to throw electrical items in the skip?
No, you can not throw old electrical waste products in your skip. This includes such things as computers, microwaves, tumble dryers, refrigerators and televisions. These products can’t be thrown in a skip as they can include dangerous materials and components.
Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Warlingham?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like your skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or house, you have got to receive permission from the local council in Warlingham, which is called a permit. If necessary, we would be happy to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less thing to worry about. The council does charge a fee for the license, plus you should know before placing your order that getting the licence can often take up to two working days.
What is classed as a builders skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The name originates from the fact that these are the most typical sizes that are hired by builders and tradespeople.
These substantial skips are suitable for a multitude of residential and business tasks. These are the biggest sizes that can be used for hefty builders waste such as soil, rubble and gravel.
How quick can you deliver a skip in Warlingham?
We can normally deliver skips to Warlingham the following working day when your order is made before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking platform offers you a number of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you want a skip to arrive ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
Do you deliver to other areas in Surrey?
We offer a UK wide skip hire and recycling service through a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Warlingham, Epsom, Horley, Esher or another location in Surrey, we can assist.
Where does my waste be taken to once the skip is picked up?
The materials in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling station. Here the contents will be sorted by machines and by hand into different waste streams, such as soil, plastics, concrete and timber. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.
How long can I hire the skip for?
You can typically keep the skip for as many as 2 weeks from your date of delivery. You may provide a chosen pick up day when you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can let us know after you have loaded the skip, and then we will arrange your collection. Generally, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer over busy times.
How can I order a skip?
Hiring a skip shouldn’t be difficult. That is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, enter your address to view the range of skip sizes we can deliver to Warlingham. Select which size you wish to hire, and confirm whether it will be located on private property. Enter in your details and make payment using our secure payment platform.
As soon as your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with all your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered by skip firms and is ideal for smaller DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies will provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?
It is important not to overload your skip, as you risk being asked to take out surplus waste before it can be collected. Irrespective of what size you hire, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, because transporting an overloaded bin will be unsafe, as rubbish could fall and lead to injuries or damage to others.
To avoid this problem, please ensure that you hire a size suited to your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full but you have some more rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be there when anybody delivers anything to your home. You can then ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be dropped just where you need it.
The same thing goes for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Warlingham?
This depends upon the skip size you want and whether you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the cheapest option. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in business settings.

Will my skip have a drop door?
Typically, almost all skips can be provided with a hinged door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you want a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip with a drop door is primarily helpful if you are hiring a large builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for midi and mini skips, as they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What size skips do you offer?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Warlingham, you have various options to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is excellent for modest household clearances and DIY work.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also makes them great for household clearances including bulky objects like pieces of furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight materials, so they can not be hired to dispose of soil or stone.
For more information regarding the different capacities available, including dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?
A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a massive container used to get rid of large volumes of waste. These bins are primarily for business use but can be used by household clients also. However, you will require a good amount of room since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger than the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.
Due to the size, these containers can only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and bricks.
Will a Warlingham skip hire company deliver my skip?
To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work with a wide range of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to offer customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.
What things can I put in my skip?
Before hiring your skip, it is essential to ensure that the type of rubbish you need to get rid of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you may discard in your skip include household items like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use your skip to dispose of building and construction rubbish, including old bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and gravel.
Some examples of restricted items include things like electrical items, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently have to be discarded separately from your general rubbish.
