Welwyn Garden City Skip Hire FAQs

What can I put in the skip?

You can throw a variety of waste into your skip. This can include timber, ceramic tiles, metal or rubble from a household clearance. Tree and bush clippings, dirt and rock from garden tasks are permitted too. Worktops from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be discarded in your skip.

There are, however, a few things that you can’t put in a skip because of the possible ecological or health risk they can cause.

You are unable to throw out your fridge, television or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things contain hazardous materials in one kind or another. They need to be discarded separately from normal waste.

If you require hazardous waste removal, we may be able to organise a separate service for this waste. Feel free to get in touch for more information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

What skip sizes do you supply?

Skips are available in a variety of different sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is great for small domestic tasks.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold roughly 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a fantastic choice for shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant waste disposal task to take on, the builder’s skip could be the most suitable option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name indicates, these are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, such as soil and hardcore. However they can just as well be hired for household rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen units.

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

Guide to skip sizes

Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip is located precisely where you want it. The same is true if you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly when gates restrict access.

On the other hand, when this is not achievable, you do not have to be concerned. Simply tell us when you are making your order, and we will take care of everything.

How much does skip hire in Welwyn Garden City cost?

To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Welwyn Garden City, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you the skip sizes we provide in your location and how much each one will cost you to hire. If your skip is going to be on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also have to be factored in.

Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?

No, you can not throw old or broken electronic waste products in your skip. This includes things such as laptops, microwaves, dishwashers, fridges and monitors. Electronic products can’t be discarded in the skip because they can contain hazardous materials and components.

Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. In some cases, we will even offer a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed as part of the order process.

Where will my waste go once the skip is collected?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into the various waste materials, such as wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Will my skip have a drop door?

The majority of skip sizes can be provided with a drop down door, making them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the bin, especially with weighty materials, such as garden soil and rubble, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, like pieces of furniture.

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you offer?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge industrial size skips that are used primarily within the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for companies that produce significant volumes of waste.

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are great for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furniture and old baby toys to paving slabs and bricks. With a volume of approximately 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you having to make multiple journeys to your local recycling centre.

What is classed as being a builders skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The name comes from the fact that these are the most popular sizes used by builders and tradespeople.

These big skips are suited to numerous domestic and business tasks. These are the biggest size skips that you can use for hefty builders waste like garden soil, stone and concrete.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Welwyn Garden City?

In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you need your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or house, you will have to secure permission from your local council in Welwyn Garden City, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we will be happy to organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for your road permit, and you should be aware before ordering that getting the licence can often take up to two working days.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

You can in most cases keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the date of delivery. You are able to provide a preferred collection day at the time you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us after you have loaded the skip, and then we will plan the collection. Generally, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer during busy times.

This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to provide customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.

Am I allowed to load up my skip higher than level load line?

It is very important never to overload your skip, as you run the risk of being required to take off excessive waste prior to it being collected. Irrespective of what size you order, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as moving an overloaded skip is hazardous, as objects could fall and lead to injuries or damage to other people.

To prevent this situation, please make sure you hire a skip size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full but you have some additional rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
