Wokingham Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builders skip is the size of skip most frequently supplied for building and demolition projects. There are generally two sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that can be used to dispose of substantial quantities of building and demolition waste materials, like dirt, rubble and bricks.
Even though they are branded a builders skip, these can be used for many other household and commercial waste disposal tasks.
Is it ok to pile up waste in my skip?
It is important never to overfill a skip, as you risk being required to remove excess waste prior to it being collected. No matter what size you hire, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, as transporting an overloaded bin can be unsafe, as rubbish could drop and result in personal injury or damage to other people.
To prevent this problem, please be sure to hire a size suited to your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full but you have extra waste to get rid of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.
What will happen to my waste when the skip is collected?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets sorted into various waste types, such as timber, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Will you deliver skips across Berkshire?
We offer a national skip hire and recycling service through a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you would like skip hire in Wokingham, Crowthorne, Reading, Thatcham or any other location in Berkshire, we can help.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip delivered by skip firms and is good for small DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge industrial size skips used primarily within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for businesses that produce significant amounts of waste.
How quick can you deliver a skip in Wokingham?
We can usually supply skips to Wokingham the next working day when your order is made before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking system offers you a range of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like a skip delivered ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
Do I have to be there when the skip is going to be delivered?
It usually is best if you can be available when anyone delivers something to your home. You can then make sure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be dropped precisely where you want it.
The same thing goes if you have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.
However, should it be unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Wokingham?
Our aim is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Wokingham. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip that you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have a skip placed on the street or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the additional expense of the skip permit.
How many different skip sizes are available?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Wokingham, you will have various options to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for modest house clearances and DIY work.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their large capacity also makes them great for house tidy ups involving bulky items like household furniture and beds.
We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only suited to lightweight waste, so they can’t be hired to get rid of soil or stone.
For additional information regarding the different sizes offered, such as proportions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Wokingham?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a permit if it is placed on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if the skip will be on your private property, like a driveway or inside your company premises.
Should you need to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, so we can make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate your skip on your own land, you will save some money.
Am I able to put all types of waste in a skip?
It is possible to put a wide array of rubbish into the skip. This can include timber, bathroom tiles, plastics or concrete from a house clearance. Tree and bush clippings, dirt and rock from garden work is permitted too. Units from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be discarded in the skip.
There are, however, a few items that you are not allowed to put in a skip due to the possible environment or health risk they may trigger.
You can’t get rid of your fridge freezer, computer or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items contain hazardous materials in one kind or another. They should be discarded separately from your general rubbish.
If you require hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to organise a separate collection for this waste. Please get in touch for more information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
What skip sizes have a door?
For anyone who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop door. This is ideal for getting rid of heavy building and construction waste materials, as it can be pushed into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop down door, though these are generally less common. Simply because these sizes are typically low enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our very best to make sure a skip that has a drop door is provided.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Wokingham?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know if the skip shall be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (like the road). Then, pick the day you want your skip to get delivered. Check your order details and make payment with our secure online payment platform. That is it!

How long am I able to hire a skip for?
The normal hire time frame will be two weeks from your date of delivery. Having said that, when you order the skip, you can let us know a pick up date that will work for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is finished with earlier than anticipated, contact us, and we will collect it as quickly as possible.
We will usually complete collections within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to remember that this may not always be possible during busier periods. Once collected, the waste will be transported to your local waste recycling station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Can I throw away electronic products in the skip?
No, you cannot throw old electrical waste items in a skip. This includes things like printers, hobs, tumble dryers, freezers and monitors. Electronic products can’t be thrown in a skip as they can include hazardous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
