West Byfleet Skip Hire FAQs
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, that gives you plenty of time to fill up the skip. However, if you need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, if you finish with the skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just tell us once you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in West Byfleet?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you need the skip to be located on land outside of your business or residence, you have got to obtain authorisation from the local authority in West Byfleet, which is referred to as a permit. If necessary, we will gladly arrange this on your behalf, so it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for your skip license, plus you should be aware before placing your order that getting the licence will often take up to 2 working days.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are big industrial size skips that are used predominantly in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for companies that generate significant quantities of waste materials.
How soon can you deliver a skip in West Byfleet?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your order prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we try to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery site, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can result in a fee for the wasted trip.
Can you deliver skips across Surrey?
As well as delivering our range of skips to West Byfleet, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Surrey. Through a network of regional and national waste management and recycling companies, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering in West Byfleet, Guildford or Oxted, we have got it covered.
What is the process of ordering a skip in West Byfleet?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you wish to hire. Let us know whether the skip is going to be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (such as the road). After that, choose the day you would like your skip to get delivered. Check your order and then make payment with our secure online payment system. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to West Byfleet on the date you have selected.
Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?
No, you don’t need to be home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we can access the place you want it delivered, we are able to take care of everything.
If you are not going to be in, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when booking the order. For example, you may need the skip to be located on a particular area of the property. Alternatively, you might need to ensure the skip doesn’t hinder entry to your garage.
Whatever the situation might be, provide the details when ordering, and then we will ensure your instructions will be passed on to the delivery driver.
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in West Byfleet. We make use of a network of both local and nationwide providers to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are vetted to make sure they meet the high standards we demand in terms of customer service, cost and environmental performance.
Can I get rid of electronic products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products must be kept separate from general waste to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electronic goods including washing machines, monitors, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.
What size skips will have a door?
Typically, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, depending on size, availability and area. If you require a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip with a drop door is primarily helpful when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow waste materials into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini skips, since they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What is classed as a builders skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most commonly used for building and construction work. There are typically two different skip sizes which can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that can be used to dispose of significant volumes of building and demolition waste, including soil, rubble and stone.
Even though they are branded a builders skip, they can of course be used for a number of other residential and commercial waste disposal jobs.
What things can I put in my skip?
Prior to ordering a skip, it is essential to make sure that the type of waste you wish to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you could put in a skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use your skip to dispose of building and construction waste, such as bricks, dirt, rubble, metals and concrete.
Examples of prohibited items include things like electrical products, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently have to be discarded separately from any general rubbish.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
The mini skip will be the most compact size available from skip firms and is good for small DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
How many different skip sizes are there?
We provide a wide range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip excellent for modest DIY tasks and house clearances. A popular option for larger projects, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For West Byfleet businesses with a big quantity of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What happens to the rubbish?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into various waste materials, such as timber, metals, paper, etc. This ensures that as much of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in West Byfleet?
This depends on the size you require and if you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the cheapest option. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.

Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?
It is very important to not overload a skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take out excessive waste before it can be collected. Regardless of the size you order, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since transporting an overloaded container can be dangerous, as rubbish could fall and lead to personal injury or damage to others.
To avoid this situation, please make sure you order a skip size suitable for your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full but you have some additional rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
