Witham Skip Hire FAQs

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Witham?

To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Witham, insert your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you which sizes we offer in your area and how much each option will cost you to hire. If your skip is going on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.

How many different skip sizes are there?

Skips are offered in a number of sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is ideal for small household tasks.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a good choice for attic clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant waste disposal task to tackle, a builder’s skip may be the best option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name indicates, they are the most typical sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, like soil and rubble. However they can just as well be hired for household rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also offer 10-16 cubic yard bins and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. To get more information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in the skip?

Electronic products such as television sets, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore can not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered products should be separated from other materials. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

What will happen to the rubbish in the skip?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get segregated into several different waste streams, such as timber, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

You can usually keep your skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, there is the option of providing a preferred collection day when making your order.

Alternatively, simply tell us when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the next working day.

It could take a little bit longer to collect your skip during busy periods, but we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.

Am I allowed to fill up the skip above the level load line?

It is important to not overfill your skip, as you run the risk of being asked to remove excess waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of the size you hire, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, since transporting an overloaded container is dangerous, as waste could drop and result in injury or damage to others.

To avoid this issue, please ensure that you order a size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full and you have more rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.

How do I hire a skip?

Hiring a skip shouldn’t be difficult. That is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter your delivery postcode to see the range of skips we are able to deliver to Witham. Pick the size you want to hire, and confirm if it will be dropped on your own property. Type in your information and make payment using our secure payment platform.

After your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with all your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size provided by skip companies and is good for small DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies will provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

How long will it take to get a skip in Witham?

We will ensure your skip will be provided on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the next day.

Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our very best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

You have to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will often incur a fee for the wasted trip.

Can you deliver to other areas in Essex?

Certainly. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to offer skips to domestic and industrial customers across Essex and anywhere else within the UK.

What is the size of a builders skip?

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most commonly hired for building and construction jobs. There are typically two skip sizes which can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to get rid of large volumes of construction and demolition waste, such as soil, concrete and bricks.

Even though they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can be used for multiple other residential and business waste disposal jobs.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Witham?

To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work together with a wide range of local and national companies. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to offer customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.

If I would like a skip on a road in Witham, will I need to get a permit?

In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you want the skip to be located on land outside of your business or house, you will have to obtain authorisation from your local council in Witham, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we will gladly arrange this for you, therefore it’s one less issue to worry about. The council does charge a fee for your skip permit, and you should be aware before booking that obtaining the licence can sometimes take up to two working days.

What skip sizes have got a drop down door?

Generally, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop down door, dependant upon size, availability and location. If you require a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip that has a drop door is mainly beneficial if choosing a large builder’s skip, since it enables you to wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, as they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Do I need to be home whenever the skip is delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be at home on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can make sure the lorry has full access and that the skip can be located exactly where you need it. The same is true when you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially when gates restrict access.

On the other hand, if that isn’t possible, you do not have to be concerned. Simply tell us when you are placing your booking, and we will take care of the rest.

What things can I put in my skip?

Prior to ordering a skip, it is essential to check that the sort of rubbish you want to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials must be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

Examples of waste types it is possible to throw in your skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use a skip to discard building and construction waste, such as timber, soil, stone, metals and concrete.

Some examples of prohibited items include things like electronic items, tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently have to be disposed of separately from any general rubbish.

How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big industrial scale skips used primarily within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for businesses that generate large amounts of waste.

Other areas covered include Brentwood, Great Dunmow, Billericay, Epping, Clacton-on-Sea, Stansted Mountfitchet, Wivenhoe and Saffron Walden.
