What waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
A skip can be used to dispose of a variety of types of waste. We are experienced in picking up and processing lots of materials produced from building jobs, garden landscaping and house tidy-ups. Examples of permitted waste materials include:
- Household furniture
- Tree trimmings
- Bricks and rubble
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Cabinets and units
Most waste materials are generally allowed, and so whether you would like to get rid of metals, plastics, timber or unwanted toys, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The quantity and waste types you put in your skip may vary according to the size skip you hired. All skips have a weight limit for safety. So if you would like discard top soil and rubble, as an example, the biggest size container you will be allowed to use is the 8 yard skip.
What type of items am I not allowed to put in my skip?
There are some materials you will not be able to throw out in your skip. The reason for this is that these goods include hazardous materials which can cause harm to the environment. They can even be hazardous to human health, and so they must be discarded separately within UK regulations.
Some examples of the things that are restricted include:
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas cylinders
- Computer screens
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
What is the cost of skip hire in Wendover?
The cost of getting a skip in Wendover depends on the size of skip you need. The least expensive option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also increase if you need to have your skip positioned on the highway, as you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into the various waste materials, like timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you run a business in Wendover and wish to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a great choice. Available in 20 – 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips on the market.
As the label indicates, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike standard skips, that are picked up using chains.
Am I able to have a skip which has a drop down door?
Nearly all skips can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the bin, especially with heavy materials, like garden soil and concrete, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky items, such as household furniture.
Can I throw electronic items in the skip?
Electric powered objects such as televisions, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore can not be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered objects need to be separated from other materials. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, the mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to deal with numerous tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be positioned on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most often hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even handle small commercial jobs.
What is a builder’s skip?
The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These will be the biggest skips that can be used to dispose of heavy building and demolition waste materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or garden soil.
The builders skip is great for a wide range of tasks. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or cleaning the attic, these substantial skips are usually the most affordable solution available.
Is it okay to load the skip above the top?
It is very important never to overfill your skip, as you risk being told to take off surplus waste prior to it being picked up. Regardless of the size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, as moving an overloaded skip will be dangerous, as objects could fall and result in injuries or damage to others.
To prevent this problem, please make sure you hire a size appropriate for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have some further waste to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.

Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Wendover?
Generally, it will be possible to have your skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to get this done, you must have permission from the local authority in Wendover, which is known as a skip permit. We can order this for you, so you don’t need to worry.
