Woodley Skip Hire FAQs
Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Electric powered objects like television sets, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste and so cannot be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic objects need to be segregated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can typically keep a skip for as many as two weeks from the date of delivery. You may give a preferred pick up day when you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can tell us when you have loaded the skip, and then we will prepare the collection. Generally, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer during hectic periods.
What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Woodley?
We have developed our booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to type in your address to see all the different skip sizes we can deliver in Woodley. Pick the right size to meet your requirements and provide us with the details of when and where you would like the skip delivered. You then make payment with the secure payment system, and we’ll send an email to verify the transaction as soon as your booking is done!
Am I allowed to dispose of all kinds of rubbish in the skip?
You can fill the skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly produced from house clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include timber, top soil, concrete, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you throw in the skip would depend on which size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, when you are using the skip for heavy construction wastes including concrete or dirt, the maximum size you could use is the 8 yard skip.
Some materials cannot be discarded in your skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?
The items in your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre. Here the waste will be segregated by machines and by hand into various waste streams, like soil, cardboard, concrete and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.
How much does skip hire in Woodley cost?
This is determined by the size you require and if you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the least expensive option. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in business settings. To receive an immediate quote for skip hire in Woodley, simply enter your postcode into the search box above.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?
A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a substantial skip that is used to get rid of large amounts of waste. These skips are primarily for commercial use but can be used by domestic customers also. Having said that, you need lots of space as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger compared to the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, roro skips should only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of soil and bricks.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can in most cases deliver skips to Woodley the following working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking program offers you a number of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you want the skip delivered asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
How much waste can a builders skip hold?
As the name suggests, a builders skip means the size of skip most commonly hired for construction and demolition work. There are usually two different skip sizes which can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins which you can use to dispose of significant volumes of building and demolition materials, like soil, rubble and bricks.
Although branded a builder’s skip, these can be used for multiple other domestic and commercial waste disposal jobs.
Can you deliver to other areas in Berkshire?
Absolutely. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we are able to offer skips to both residential and industrial customers across Berkshire and elsewhere within the UK.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be at home when we deliver the skip. Providing we can gain access to where you need it positioned, we can take care of it all.
In case you will not be at home, simply let us have any relevant delivery directions when booking your order. For instance, you might want the skip to be positioned on a particular area of your property. Alternatively, you might need to ensure the skip doesn’t prevent entry to your garage.
No matter what the situation may be, simply let us know when you place your order, and then we will ensure the instructions will be passed to the lorry driver.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We are able to offer a wide range of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip suitable for modest DIY projects and house clearances. A common option for bigger tasks, renovations and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Woodley businesses with a significant volume of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How big is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest skip available from skip companies and is perfect for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Woodley?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a permit if it is put on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit if the skip is on your private property, such as a drive or on your business premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know during the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with your local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place your skip on private property, you will save a few pounds.
Will a skip hire company from Woodley deliver my skip?
To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a wide range of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to provide customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it unsafe to move, and you may have to empty any materials higher than the level load mark. This means you are unable to use sheets of wood, doors or another item, as this will increase the height of the skip. We have a legal obligation to make sure that skips aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure to select the correct size of skip for your needs and get in contact if you are unsure which size you require. We would be glad to help.
Am I able to get a skip with a drop door?
The vast majority of containers can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the bin, especially with heavy materials, like dirt and gravel, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, such as household furniture.
