Acton, Suffolk Skip Hire FAQs
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to get rid of huge quantities of waste. In the majority of cases, these type of containers are used for industrial applications. Having said that, domestic customers may also hire them. It is very important think about the area they take up, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be hired for light materials including plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and rubble.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
The standard hire period is 14 days from your delivery date. Having said that, at the time you book the skip, you can provide a collection date that is perfect for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is loaded earlier than anticipated, contact us, and we will get it removed as soon as possible.
Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this is not always the case during busy times. Once collected, the waste will be transported to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed and sorted.
Is it ok to load up the skip above the side?
It is important not to overload the skip. You must not pass the level load line indicated along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it is very dangerous to transport. Which means that when you overload the skip, you might be asked to remove the surplus waste. Regardless of how secure you feel the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. That is dangerous and is therefore prohibited.
What types of waste can you dispose of in a skip?
You are able to fill your skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from home clearances, building work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, soil, stone, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you throw in your skip depends on which skip size you have hired, as there is a weight limit. For example, when you will be using a skip for heavy building waste such as concrete or soil, the largest size you would be able to get is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be discarded in a skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These will be the largest containers that can be hired to discard weighty construction waste such as stone, bricks, gravel or clay.
The builder’s skip is great for a number of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing out your garden shed, these substantial containers will often be the most affordable option available.
How long will it take to get a skip in Acton?
We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your booking prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we strive to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery location, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can result in a fee for a wasted journey.
Will a Acton skip hire company deliver my skip?
To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work together with a number of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.
Am I allowed to throw away electronic products in the skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, because electrical products like old televisions, fridges, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly way.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Acton?
The cost of hiring a skip in Acton will depend on the size of skip you need. The least expensive skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and clearances. If you want a larger skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The cost will also increase if you need to have the skip placed on the highway, since you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
It is always best if you can be there when anybody delivers something to your house. You can then make sure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it.
The same goes for those who have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Acton, you will have several options to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for small household clearances and DIY tasks.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most popular sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also means they are suitable for house tidy ups including bulky objects like household furniture and beds.
We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only suitable for lightweight waste materials, so they can not be hired to get rid of soil or concrete.
For further information regarding the various capacities available, including dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Acton?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you need the skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or residence, you will have to get authorisation from your local authority in Acton, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we will gladly arrange this on your behalf, so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the license, and you should know before placing your order that securing the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.
What size is the mini skip?
If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some household rubbish, the mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to deal with numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be situated on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most often hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.
Can you deliver skips across Suffolk?
Absolutely. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we are able to supply skips to domestic and business customers across Suffolk and elsewhere in the UK.
How can I order a skip in Acton?
We have designed our booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first step is to enter your address to check out the range of skip sizes we can supply in Acton. Pick the right size to meet your needs and provide us with the details of where and when you need the skip delivered. Then you can make payment through the secure payment system, and we’ll send an email to confirm the transaction as soon as your booking is done!
Can I have a skip that has a drop down door?
The majority of containers can be supplied with a drop door, which makes them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the skip, particularly with weighty materials, like dirt and gravel, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, such as household furniture.
What happens to the rubbish in the skip?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into the different waste materials, including wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
