Roll-On/Roll-Off Containers in Battersea, Balham and all London Areas


Skip hire is one of the most convenient waste management services we have available at Metro Waste because we have a broad choice of skip sizes in stock. Smaller 2-yard and 4-yard skips are the perfect choice for a smaller domestic project, and our 6-yard, 8-yard, 10-yard and 12-yard skips have the capacities needed to cope with large-scale building and commercial waste.

We even have 20-yard and 40-yard skips for the biggest waste collections.

Sometimes, it isn’t possible to leave a skip in one place for the full duration of a hire period. Site operations change daily and if you can’t start the next stage of a job because a skip is in the way, things can come to a standstill.

This is where our roll-on/roll-off containers come into play.

Roll-on/roll-off containers are bigger than standard mini and midi skips. Metro Waste delivers these containers on a flatbed truck and because each unit has wheels fitted, we can “roll off” during delivery and “roll on” when you are ready for us to come out and collect the container after filling it.

This is a versatile waste management service offered in the following areas:

Battersea | Balham | Brixton | Clapham | Fulham | Putney | Stockwell | Tooting | Vauxhall | Wimbledon | London

Because roll-on/roll-off containers come in bigger sizes than traditional mini and midi skips, they must be kept onsite and not on the roadside. Mainly used for construction and commercial waste, our containers won’t stop you from accessing the area where we originally drop them off because, once the wheels have been unlocked, you can easily move them to another location.

You then lock the wheels back into place to stop containers from moving.

When Should I Choose Roll-On/Roll-Off Containers?

At Metro Waste, we believe that roll-on/roll-off containers are better suited to building, construction, commercial, retail, public service or industrial clients in London who generate large waste volumes on a gradual basis. We can drop off and collect “Ro-Ro” containers in line with your business needs and all we ask is that you have enough space onsite for us to position them safely.

Size, of course, is the biggest benefit to using roll-on/roll-off containers.

These waste management solutions save space and cut down on how many collections and deliveries you will need during a project’s duration to save on costs. Just as importantly, we spend less time on the road when you hire roll-on/roll-off containers, and this reduces how many journeys we make and how much fuel we use; a key consideration that lowers our carbon footprint.

Roll-on/roll-off containers can accept the following waste types:

  • General Waste Materials
  • Scrap Metal
  • Commercial Waste
  • Industrial Waste
  • Compacted Waste
  • Bulk Waste and Packaging
