Woolwich Skip Hire FAQs

Is it okay to fill up the skip higher than the level load mark?

I’m afraid not. You must only fill the skip up to the level load line. Stacking rubbish up over this line will make it dangerous to move, and you may be asked to take off the surplus waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, that gives you plenty of time to load your skip. However, if you need a little more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

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

Which size skips will have a drop door?

Virtually all skip sizes can be supplied with a drop down door, which makes them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the skip, particularly with weighty materials, such as garden soil and rubble, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, such as furniture.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Woolwich?

This depends on the size you require and whether you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the cheapest option. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used mainly in business settings.

Every one of our partner skip hire companies are verified and tested to make certain they satisfy our standards for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?

You don’t need to be home when your skip is going to be delivered, but it will help. Being in whenever the skip is due for delivery means you can ensure the lorry can be given complete access and that the skip will be placed precisely where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is being delivered to business premises, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.

Having said that, when you can’t be around for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask that you tell us when you place your order, and we will arrange everything from there.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will make sure your skip will be provided when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the next day.

Although we cannot 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 can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will often incur a fee for the wasted trip.

What happens to the waste in my skip?

After you have finished filling your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Woolwich where we separate the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.

How can I hire a skip online?

Hiring a skip in Woolwich through us is incredibly straightforward. Pick the skip size you require and then enter a couple of details about where and when you want your skip delivered. Then you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered on the date selected.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Woolwich?

If at all possible, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface area. For anybody who is carrying out a household project, then a driveway will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. On the other hand, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public land, you need to get a permit from your local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be located on a street, grass verge or other public property in Woolwich. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be granted on your behalf. An extra cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.

How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?

The term builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The label comes from the fact that they are the most typical sizes used by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial containers are perfect for a multitude of residential and business jobs. These are the largest size skips that can be used for weighty builders waste such as dirt, stone and concrete.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

We provide a full range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip best for modest DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A common option for more substantial projects, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Woolwich firms which generate a significant quantity of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Can I get rid of electronic products in my skip?

Electrical objects including televisions, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste stream and so can not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical products must be segregated from other waste. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly way.

How large is the mini skip?

If you have a small quantity of rubbish to throw out, a mini skip could be the best option. What size is identified as a mini skip differs from business to business, determined by what sizes they have.

The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to have a 3 cubic yard skip for their smallest option. The price is based on the particular size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are ideal for residential work including modest DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

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

If you manage a company in Woolwich and need to dispose of large quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers on the market.

As the name implies, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike conventional skips, which are lifted by using chains.

Can I put all sorts of rubbish in a skip?

You can fill the skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly generated from loft clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, soil, concrete, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.

What you throw in your skip will depend on which skip size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight limit. For example, if you are using your skip for heavy construction wastes like concrete or garden soil, the largest size you would be able to get is the 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials cannot be discarded in a skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.

Other areas covered include Kensington, South East London, Lewisham, Kenley, Richmond Upon Thames, West Drayton, Redbridge and Westminster.
