Windsor Skip Hire FAQs
Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Windsor?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a permit when it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit when your skip will be on private property, such as a drive or on your business premises.
Should you need to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position your skip on private land, it will save you some pounds.
What can I put in the skip?
Before you hire a skip, you must check that the sort of rubbish you wish to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials must be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types you are able to throw in your skip include home items like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use your skip to get rid of building and construction waste, including old bricks, soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Examples of restricted items include things like electronic items, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently must be discarded separately from your general waste.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are ideal for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furnishings and broken baby toys to paving blocks and rubble. Having a volume of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip will save you needing to make numerous trips to your local recycling centre.
Do all skips have a drop door?
Using a skip which has a drop door can make loading waste into it so much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste materials like dirt or hardcore, which can then be walked straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading large bulky objects such as pieces of furniture a lot easier too.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop door, although this will sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a door is required, and we will do our best to supply this.
How many different skip sizes are available?
Skips come in a selection of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small household jobs.
The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold roughly 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a good choice for loft clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
When you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to undertake, the builder’s skip could be the smartest choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title indicates, these are the most frequent sizes hired by builders for building waste, including soil and hardcore. However they can equally well be used for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or bathroom suites.
We can also provide 10-16 cubic yard containers and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more information about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
The regular hire term will be 14 days from the date of delivery. However, when you order the skip, you can choose a collection date that is perfect for you. Of course, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if the skip is full earlier than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it removed at the earliest opportunity.
We can normally be out to get your skip within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to keep in mind that this may not always be possible during busier times. Once collected, your skip will be taken to your local waste transfer facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Am I allowed to throw away electrical products in the skip?
Electronic objects including TVs, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste type and so can not be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric goods need to be segregated from other rubbish. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.
Will you deliver skips across Berkshire?
As well as delivering our range of skips to Windsor, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Berkshire. With the help of a network of regional and national skip hire and recycling businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Windsor, Maidenhead or Eton, we have got you covered.
Is it ok to fill the skip above the top?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this makes it unsafe to transport, and you will probably have to empty any contents over the level load line. This means you can not use sheets of wood, doors or any other item, as this will increase the size of the skip. We have a legal duty to make sure that bins aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure you hire the correct size of skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you’re not sure which size you need. We will be glad to help.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be at home when the skip is delivered, however it will help. Being there when the skip is being delivered means you can make sure the driver can be given complete access and that your skip will be placed exactly where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to a business premises, we will appreciate your support during the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, when you can’t be available for delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you book your order, and then we will organise things from there.
How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
As the name suggests, a builders skip is the size of skip most frequently supplied for building and demolition projects. There are usually two different sizes that can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of large amounts of construction and demolition waste materials, including soil, rubble and bricks.
Although labelled a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for various other residential and commercial waste disposal tasks.
What happens to the rubbish when the skip is picked up?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into a range of waste streams, which includes timber, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!

Every one of our partner skip hire providers are verified and evaluated to guarantee they meet our standards for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial commercial scale skips that are used primarily in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for organisations that produce large quantities of waste.

You have to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will often incur a fee for the wasted trip.
What is the cost of skip hire in Windsor?
The price of getting a skip in Windsor is determined by the size of skip you want. The lowest priced option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a larger skip, like an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also increase if you want to have the skip positioned on the highway, because you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
