Wickford Skip Hire FAQs

What types of waste am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?

A skip may be used to dispose of many different types of waste. We are used to picking up and handling a multitude of items produced from building work, garden landscaping and household clean-ups. Some examples of allowed waste products include things like:

  • Pieces of furniture
  • Garden cuttings
  • Soil
  • Stone and concrete
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many different waste types are usually accepted, therefore whether you would like to discard furniture, plastics, wood or fabric, we can normally take your waste away.

The quantity and waste types you put into the skip may vary depending on the size skip you ordered. Skips have a weight limit for safety. So if you need to get rid of garden soil and hardcore, as an example, the biggest size you would be permitted to hire is the 8 yard builders skip.

Are there any items which I can’t throw in the skip?

There are some waste materials that you are not able to dispose of in your skip. The main reason for this is that some products include hazardous elements which may cause damage to the environment. They may also be hazardous to human health, so they need to be discarded separately within UK regulations.

Some of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How do you hire a skip in Wickford?

This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip will be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on public property (such as the road). Then, select the date you need your skip to get delivered. Check your order details and make payment with our secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Wickford on the date you have selected.

When will my skip be delivered?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We can typically provide a following day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (like a highway), you must obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.

As a result of numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it to be delivered within a morning or afternoon slot.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

The regular hire period will be a fortnight from your delivery date. However, when you order your skip, you can choose a pick up date that will work for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is finished with earlier than anticipated, contact us, and we will get it collected as quickly as possible.

We will usually be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. However, it is important to remember that this is not always the case at busier periods. Once collected, your skip will be transported to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed and sorted.

Do I have to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be at home when it is delivered. Then you can make sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip will be placed precisely where you want it. This also is applicable if you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially when gates restrict access.

However, if this isn’t achievable, you don’t need to stress. Just let us know when placing your booking, and we will handle everything.

What is a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most commonly hired for construction and demolition work. There are typically two sizes which can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to get rid of large quantities of building and demolition materials, such as earth, concrete and stone.

Although they are branded a builders skip, these can of course be used for a number of other domestic and commercial waste disposal tasks.

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

A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a large skip that can be used to dispose of large volumes of waste. These containers are primarily for industrial use but can be used by residential customers too. However, you need a lot of space since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger when compared to the typical skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, roro containers should only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and bricks.

Will my skip have a drop down door?

Having a skip that has a drop down door makes filling waste into it so much easier. This is especially true with hefty waste materials such as dirt or concrete, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up big bulky objects like pieces of furniture a lot easier also.

The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, although this can sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when you place your booking if a door is needed, and we will do our best to deliver this.

Do you deliver to other areas in Essex?

Yes, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skips to locations throughout Essex, including Wickford, South Woodham Ferrers, Harlow and Corringham. So wherever you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

What are the different skip sizes to pick from?

We are able to supply a wide range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A popular option for more substantial tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

For Wickford companies which have a large quantity of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Wickford?

To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Wickford, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you which sizes we offer in your location and how much each option costs to hire. If your skip will be on the highway or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.

Where will you take the waste from my skip?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the various waste streams, like wood, metals, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Am I allowed to load up the skip higher than level load mark?

It is important to not overload your skip, as you risk being asked to take out excess waste before it can be picked up. Whatever size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, because transporting an overloaded bin will be hazardous, as materials could fall and result in injury or damage to other people.

To prevent this problem, please be sure to order a size suitable for your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full but you have some additional waste to get rid of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.

If I would like a skip on a road in Wickford, will I need to have a permit?

Usually, it is possible to get a skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to get this done, you need to get approval from your local authority in Wickford, which is called a skip permit. We are able to order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council do charge a fee for the license, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.

What size is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are ideal for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and broken toys to paving slabs and concrete. With a volume of around 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you having to make multiple visits to the local recycling centre.

Am I able to throw away electronic items in my skip?

I’m afraid not, since electrical products including old televisions, refrigerators, pcs and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly way.

Other areas covered include South Woodham Ferrers, Harlow, Corringham, Theydon Bois, Chipping Ongar, Brightlingsea, Witham and Colchester.
