Woodford Skip Hire FAQs

What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Woodford?

Hiring a skip should not be hard. This is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible. First, enter in your delivery address to view all the different skip sizes we can deliver to Woodford. Select which size you want to order, and confirm whether it is going to be delivered on your own property. Enter your details and make payment using our secure online payment platform.

Once your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.

Can you deliver skips across Greater London?

We provide a national skip hire and waste management service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local partners. So whether you would like skip hire in Woodford, Waltham Forest, Tower Hamlets, Hounslow or any other site in Greater London, we are able to assist.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. In most cases, that will provide you with sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, if you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your pick up. Just let us know once you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.

Where does my rubbish be taken to once the skip is collected?

When you have finished with your skip, we will come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility in or local to Woodford where we separate the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

Can I throw electrical products in the skip?

Electronic products such as television sets, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore can not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical objects need to be separated from other materials. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly way.

Will a skip hire company from Woodford deliver my skip?

As we provide a nationwide skip hire service, we use an extensive network of approved companies. These can vary from small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental requirements.

What different sizes do skips come in?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Woodford, you have numerous sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 cubic yard container, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for modest house clearances and DIY jobs.

Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also means they are great for household tidy ups involving large objects like pieces of furniture and beds.

We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people with even bigger waste disposal needs. These containers are only appropriate for light materials, so they cannot be hired to get rid of garden soil or rubble.

For further information about the different capacities offered, including proportions, check out our guide to skip sizes.

What size skips will have a drop door?

Getting a skip that has a drop down door makes filling waste into it a lot easier. This is particularly true with hefty waste materials such as garden soil and hardcore, which can then be loaded into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading big bulky items like household furniture easier too.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, but this will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when you place your booking if a drop door is required, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.

What is classed as a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most often hired for building and demolition work. There are generally two different skip sizes which can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to get rid of large quantities of building and demolition waste, such as soil, rubble and stone.

Although they are labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for multiple other domestic and industrial waste disposal tasks.

What things can I put in my skip?

You are allowed to load the skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly produced from garage clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include timber, top soil, rubble, garden trimmings, household furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you put in the skip will depend on the skip size you have hired, because there is a weight limit. For example, if you will be using your skip for heavy construction waste including concrete or top soil, the largest size you could get is the 8 cubic yard.

Some materials can not be discarded in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Woodford?

In most cases, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you need your skip to be placed on land outside of your company or house, you will need to obtain permission from the local council in Woodford, which is known as a permit. If necessary, we will be happy to organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less thing to worry about. The council does charge a fee for your permit, plus you should know before booking that obtaining the licence will often take up to 2 working days.

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are great for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and broken toys to paving blocks and concrete. With a total capacity of approximately 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you having to make numerous trips to your local recycling centre.

Is it okay to load my skip higher than the top?

No, you are only allowed to pack your skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste materials up over this line would make it unsafe to transport, and you may be asked to remove the surplus waste before the skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

If you have a business in Woodford and wish to dispose of large quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a great choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that are available.

As the label indicates, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, in contrast to conventional skips, which are picked up by using chains.

Should I be in when the skip will be delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be in at the time it is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has complete access and that the skip will be positioned exactly where you want it. This also is applicable when you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates limit access.

On the other hand, if that isn’t possible, you do not need to be concerned. Just tell us when you are placing your booking, and we will handle everything.

How long does it take to get a skip in Woodford?

We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you complete your booking before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive, we endeavour to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery position, as failed deliveries can lead to a fee for the wasted trip.

What is the cost of skip hire in Woodford?

The price of hiring a skip in Woodford depends on the size of skip you want. The cheapest skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you need a larger skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also increase if you need to have your skip on the road, because you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Other areas covered include Waltham Forest, Tower Hamlets, Hounslow, Teddington, Sutton, Mitcham, Havering and Kensington.
