Skip Hire Chigwell

Engaging a dumpster in Chigwell is simple in the event you know what you're doing. So here are several things you must know about skip hire:

You can: 

  • Look in a local business directory or in the web for 'skip hire'.
  • Search in your local council's web site - since many councils provide a list of waste contractors within their place. 
  • Take a look at skips on roads and drives near you. By law, the operators must place their name and contact details to the skip. Pick some or each and every one of these operators - and give a call to them. 
  • Contact Waste King 

Avoid errors 

  •  Check with the Environment Agency the operator is properly qualified and licensed to take waste. 
  • Ask the skip operator for its waste carrier license number. 
  • Visit the Environment Agency's website and assess if this amount relates to a valid license. 

Skip size 

Skips can be found in several sizes - and adhere to the 'imperial' measures of cubic yards. This equates - about - to two standard washing machines or dishwashers, or to one vertical fridge freezer. 

The most typical size of dumpster - in a residential area - is one which holds either six or eight cubic yards of substances. Both these sizes of skip are known - confusingly - as 'contractors' skips'. Please note that many councils don't allow skips using a capacity bigger than eight cubic yards to be set on a public highway. 

The optimum size of skip for your need is the one which enables you to use all of its space to feature all of the waste you must dispose of. If you can't fill the skip with waste, you're paying money to only move air.

Loading the skip

In the event you can't load the skip yourself - or get some of your relatives and buddies to do it for you - you probably should look at alternatives for getting rid of your waste materials. You may contact Waste King, the labour is provided both by a specialist waste clearance company, which to load the vehicle and the waste materials with which to remove it.


Skip lorries have a tendency to be between eight and half feet and nine and half feet wide. They tend to weigh at least 7.5 tonnes. On The Other Hand, the skip must be put on the road next to your own property - and that means you'll want a skip permit.

Both the parking suspension as well as the skip permit not only cost money but will take a few days to organize.

How long can I keep a skip?

Operators will need to collect the (full) skip in a week - or in fourteen days at the most. You must agree and discuss this with the skip hire firm - if you need the skip to be removed sooner - or later. In the event the skip's being placed on the road, you got to take account of the provisions of your skip permit and any parking suspension that needs to be in place. Both these things cost money. So the longer that the skip's there, the more cash it costs you.

So what can I place in a skip found in Chigwell?

More or less anything except:

  • Plasterboard
  • Paint and cans of paint 
  • Fluorescent tubes 
  • Liquids 
  • Oil, petrol or diesel 
  • Electrical appliances and equipment, including televisions and computer screens; refrigerators, freezers and air-conditioning units 
  • Batteries 
  • Gas canisters and gas bottles 
  • Asbestos 
  • Tyres 
  • Hazardous and poisonous materials 
  • Clinical or medical waste, including syringes 

In case the waste is above these edges, the operator can - legitimately - bill you extra money for the hire of the skip or ask you to remove the excessive waste before the skip can be removed. 

What happens to the things within the dumpster?

The operator should have the capacity to tell you the landfill site to which your waste is going - and how much of it, if any, will avoid going to landfill. Waste King is pledged to recycle at least 90 per cent of each skip load of waste. This lowers the the environmental effect of the waste - and enables Waste King to supply price reductions to its customers.

What's the price of Chigwell based Skip Hire?

The cost of the skip depends on its size, the waste material you're putting in it and where - in the UK - you're based. As a rough guide, an average price for an eight yard contractor's skip is now around GBP220, in addition to the expense of any parking bay suspension and skip permit.

Is there an alternative to a skip in Chigwell?

Yes. A specialist waste clearance, collections and recycling firm - such as Waste King - may save you time, energy, effort and cash. Moreover, Waste King's staff will segregate the waste to ensure the maximum amount is recycled and the minimum amount of the waste goes to landfill - therefore helping the environment also.

Waste King will: Save you time in clearing the waste, compared with the time taken to fill a skip and then get it removed
Save you money because it only charges for the amount of waste removed (not by the skip load)
Take away a wider range of waste materials than are permitted to be put into a skip
Have the capacity to clear waste materials from any part of your property - so, unlike skips, there are never any 'access issues'
And, since no skip is left overnight, your neighbours can't offload their waste materials when no one's looking - so you simply pay for your own waste to be removed.
