Westerham Skip Hire FAQs
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
Skips are available in a wide range of different sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is good for small residential jobs.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a good option for shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
If you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to take on, a builder’s skip could be the best choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title suggests, these are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, including clay and stone. But they can equally well be hired for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We can also provide 10-16 cubic yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to 14 days. In most cases, that provides you with plenty of time to fill up the skip. However, if you do need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, should you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just let us know once you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
If I need a skip on a road in Westerham, will I need to get a permit?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be located. You will only require a skip permit if it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit when your skip will be on your private property, like a drive or inside your company premises.
Should you need to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us during the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position your skip on private land, you will save a few pounds.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Westerham?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Westerham, insert your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you the sizes we provide in your location and how much each one will cost you to hire. If your skip will be on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.
Am I allowed to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, because electrical products such as old televisions, freezers, laptops and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects have to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly way.
How can I order a skip in Westerham?
Hiring a skip should not be difficult. This is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter in your delivery address to look at the range of skip sizes we can deliver to Westerham. Select the size you would like to hire, and confirm whether it will be delivered on private property. Enter in your details and make payment using our secure online payment platform.
After your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with all your booking details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can usually supply skips to Westerham the following working day when an order is made before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking platform will provide you with various delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like a skip to arrive ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
What sort of waste can you put in a skip?
You are allowed to throw a wide array of waste into the skip. This can include timber, ceramic tiles, metal or rubble from a house clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, top soil and stone from garden tasks are allowed as well. Cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in the skip.
However, there are things that you are not allowed to put in a skip a result of the possible environmental or health risks they can trigger.
You can’t throw out your fridge freezer, printer or your old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items contain hazardous elements in one form or another. They need to be discarded separately from your normal rubbish.
If you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to schedule a separate collection for this waste. Please get in touch for further information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?
Using a skip with a drop down door will make filling rubbish into the skip much easier. This is especially the case with heavy materials like garden soil or concrete, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make disposing of large bulky items like household furniture easier also.
The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, however it will sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.
What is a builders skip?
The builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the biggest skips that can be hired to get rid of heavy building and construction waste materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or garden soil.
The builders skip is great for a variety of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning the garden shed, these substantial containers are usually the most cost-effective choice available.
What is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some household waste, the mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to take on many 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 household customers, the mini skip can even be used for small commercial jobs.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container that can be used to transport significant volumes of waste materials. Primarily, these skips are used for business uses. However, domestic clients can also use them. You will need to look at the space they will occupy, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be utilised for light-weight materials such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and rubble.
Should I be in when the skip is going to be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is best to be at home when it is delivered. Then you can make sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip is located precisely where you want it. The same applies if you have a skip delivered to company property, particularly when gates limit access.
However, if that is not possible, you don’t need to be concerned. Just let us know when placing your order, and we will handle the rest.
What will happen to the rubbish in the skip?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get segregated into a range of waste streams, including wood, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Do you use local skip hire companies in Westerham?

We work with a network of both local and nationwide companies to allow us to offer our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK.

Do you deliver to other areas in Kent?
We provide a nationwide skip hire service through a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you want skip hire in Westerham, Sittingbourne, New Romney, Whitstable or another site in Kent, we can assist.
Can I fill the skip higher than the top?
It is important not to overfill a skip. You can not pass the level load mark that is indicated on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it will become very hazardous to transport. Which means that when you overfill the skip, you may be asked to remove the surplus rubbish. No matter how safe you believe the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This can be dangerous and is therefore prohibited.
Other areas covered include Sittingbourne, New Romney, Whitstable, Gravesend, Hythe, Rochester, Paddock Wood and Sevenoaks.
