Wimbledon Skip Hire FAQs

What is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some household waste, the mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to tackle numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be placed on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most frequently chosen by household customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.
What size skips can you offer?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Wimbledon, you will have multiple options to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard skip, also known as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for small household clearances and DIY jobs.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also makes them perfect for house clear ups including large objects such as household furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These sizes are only appropriate for light waste, so they can’t be hired to get rid of soil or stone.
To get more details about the different sizes offered, including dimensions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
How quick can you deliver a skip in Wimbledon?
We will ensure your skip is provided when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we can’t promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
It is important to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will in most cases incur a fee for the wasted trip.
Will the skip have a drop down door?
Using a skip with a drop down door makes filling waste into it so much easier. This is especially true with hefty waste such as dirt and rubble, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading big bulky items such as household furniture much easier as well.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop door, but it will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when making your booking if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.
What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into various waste materials, such as wood, metals, plastics, etc. This ensures that as much of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
The phrase builders skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The name comes from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are ideal for an array of domestic and commercial jobs. They are the biggest skips which can be used for weighty builders waste such as top soil, rubble and bricks.

Can I throw electrical items in my skip?
Electrical objects including tv sets, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste type and so should not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered products have to be separated from other rubbish. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly way.
Do I have to be there when the skip is delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is best to be in on the day it is delivered. Then you can make sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip will be positioned precisely where you want it. This also is true if you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly if gates restrict access.
Having said that, when this is not achievable, you do not have to be concerned. Just tell us when making your order, and we will take care of the rest.
Can I load the skip higher than the side?
It is important not to overfill your skip, as you run the risk of being required to remove surplus waste before it can be picked up. No matter what size you order, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, because moving an overloaded container can be hazardous, as rubbish could drop and lead to injury or damage to others.
To avoid this problem, please make sure you hire a skip size suited to your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have more waste to dispose of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.
How much does skip hire in Wimbledon cost?

We will immediately show you which sizes we offer in your area and how much each option will cost you to hire. If your skip will be on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Wimbledon?
Usually, it is possible to have your skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to do this, you have got to have consent from the local authority in Wimbledon, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for your license, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. In most cases, that provides you with sufficient time to fill up your skip. However, if you need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, in the event you finish with the skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
What waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
It is possible to throw a variety of rubbish in the skip. This can include wood, floor tiles, plastics or concrete from a house clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, soil and rock from garden jobs are permitted too. Cupboards from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also go in a skip.
However, there are some materials that you can’t put in a skip a result of the possible ecological or health risks they can cause.
You can not get rid of your refrigerator, computer or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these items incorporate hazardous elements in one type or another. They need to be disposed of separately from your general waste.
If you need hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to schedule a separate collection for this waste. Feel free to email for more information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
