Woking Skip Hire FAQs
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
You can usually have a skip for up to two weeks from the delivery date. You may provide a preferred collection day at the time you place your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have finished with the skip, and we will arrange the collection. Normally, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer during busy times.
Will my skip come with a drop down door?
Getting a skip which has a drop door helps make filling rubbish into the skip much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste materials such as soil and hardcore, which can then be loaded directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up big bulky objects such as pieces of furniture much easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop door, although this may sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a door is needed, and we will do our very best to supply this.
Am I allowed to fill up my skip above the level load line?
It is very important not to overfill a skip, as you risk being required to take off surplus waste before it can be collected. Regardless of what size you hire, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since moving an overloaded container can be unsafe, as rubbish could drop and result in injuries or damage to other people.
To avoid this situation, please ensure you hire a size appropriate for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have some more rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip company will likely deliver your skip in Woking. We work with a network of both local and national companies to allow us to offer our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are assessed to guarantee they match the high expectations we demand when it comes to service, cost and environmental performance.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available from skip firms and is good for small DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Woking?
Usually, it will be possible to have your skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to get this done, you need to get permission from your local authority in Woking, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for your permit, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
What types of waste can I throw in a skip?
A skip may be used to get rid of lots of different types of waste. We are experienced in picking up and processing lots of materials from construction jobs, garden landscaping and property clearances. A few examples of permitted waste types can include:
- Home furnishings
- Hedge cuttings
- Top soil
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Kitchen cabinets and units
The majority of waste materials will be permitted, and so whether you would like to get rid of furniture, plastics, timber or clothing, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The volume and waste types you discard in the skip may vary according to which size skip you have hired. Skips have a weight limit for safety. So if you need to discard top soil and concrete, as an example, the biggest size you will be able to hire would be the 8 cubic yard skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?
There are some waste items you will not be able to discard in the skip. The main reason for this is that some items contain hazardous elements that may cause damage to the environment. They could also be dangerous to human health, so they have to be disposed of separately within UK laws.
A few of the products which are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas cylinders
- Computer monitors
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
Can you deliver skips across Surrey?
We provide a national skip hire and recycling service by using a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Woking, Weybridge, Staines-upon-Thames, Banstead or another site in Surrey, we are able to assist.
What size is a builders skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most frequently supplied for building projects. There are typically two sizes that may be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to dispose of significant amounts of building and demolition waste, like dirt, concrete and stone.
Although they are branded a builder’s skip, these can be used for multiple other household and commercial waste disposal tasks.
Can I throw away electronic products in the skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, because electronic items like old televisions, cookers, printers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly fashion.
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 waste will be sorted into various waste streams, like timber, metals, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be there on the day it is delivered. You can then ensure that the skip lorry has total access and that the skip will be positioned precisely where you want it. The same is applicable when you have a skip delivered to company property, particularly when gates limit access.
However, if that is not achievable, you do not need to stress. Simply tell us when you are placing your booking, and then we will take care of everything.
