Alcester Skip Hire FAQs
Where will my waste go once the skip is collected?
When you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling centre in or local to Alcester where we sort the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
Do you deliver skips across Warwickshire?
In addition to delivering skips and containers to Alcester, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Warwickshire. With the help of our network of local and national skip businesses, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to Alcester, Warwick or Coleshill, we have got it covered.
Can I throw away electronic products in the skip?
Electronic products such as tv sets, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste stream and so cannot be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric items need to be separated from other materials. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large industrial size skips used mainly in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for companies that produce significant volumes of waste.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can normally keep a skip for up to two weeks from the delivery date. You are able to give a preferred collection day when you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can tell us when you have loaded the skip, and we will organise your collection. Usually, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer over busy periods.
What skip sizes do you provide?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Alcester, you have several sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard container, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is great for modest house clearances and DIY work.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most popular sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their substantial capacity also makes them well suited for household clear ups including bulky objects such as furniture and beds.
We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only suitable for lightweight waste, so they can not be used to dispose of garden soil or concrete.
For additional information regarding the different skip sizes offered, including measurements, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
What types of waste can I put in a skip?
Your skip can be hired to get rid of many different types of waste materials. We are used to collecting and processing a multitude of items from building jobs, garden projects and household clean-ups. A few examples of allowed waste types include:
- Home furniture
- Hedge trimmings
- Garden soil
- Bathroom toilets and sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Many materials will be allowed, and so whether you would like to throw out furniture, plastics, timber or textiles, we can normally take your waste away.
The quantity and waste types you discard in the skip may vary according to the size skip you ordered. Skips do have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you need to discard top soil and hardcore, for example, the biggest size container you will be permitted to hire is the 8 yard skip.
What kind of materials am I not allowed to put in a skip?
There are several materials which you are not able to throw out in your skip. The main reason for this is that these goods incorporate hazardous materials that may be damaging to the environment. They may also be dangerous to human health, therefore they must be disposed of separately within UK laws.
A few of the items which are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas cylinders
- Computer monitors
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
Is it ok to load my skip above level load line?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it unsafe to move, and you will probably be asked to remove any rubbish above the level load line. This also means you are unable to make use of sheets of wood, doors or some other item, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty to ensure that skips aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure you choose the correct size of skip for your requirements and get in contact if you are unsure which size is best. We will be happy to help.
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip hire company will likely deliver your skip in Alcester. We make use of a network of both regional and nationwide companies to allow us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are vetted to be sure they match the high standards we require regarding customer service, price and environmental performance.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we deliver your skip. As long as we can gain access to where you need it located, we will manage everything.
In the event you will not be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery instructions when placing the order. For instance, you may prefer the skip to be dropped on a particular side of your property. Alternatively, you may want to make sure the skip does not hinder access to your garage.
Whatever the case might be, provide the information when ordering, and we will make sure your instructions will be passed to the delivery driver.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ensure your skip will be provided on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the next day.
Although we are not able to promise a precise delivery time, we will do our best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You should ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will usually incur a charge for the wasted trip.
Which skip sizes have a door?
Having a skip which has a drop down door can make filling waste into the skip much easier. This is especially the case with heavy waste such as dirt or hardcore, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading large bulky items such as pieces of furniture easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, but this will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our best to provide this.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Alcester?
Normally, it will be possible to get a skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to do this, you must get approval from your local authority in Alcester, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will impose a fee for the permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
How do I order a skip in Alcester?
Ordering a skip in Alcester with us is incredibly easy. Choose the skip size you want and then enter a couple of details about when and where you would like your skip delivered. You then pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then arrange to have your skip delivered on the date selected.
How much will skip hire in Alcester cost?
The price of getting a skip in Alcester will depend on the size of skip you require. The least expensive skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you want a larger sized skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also increase if you need to have the skip placed on the highway, as you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered by skip firms and is ideal for smaller DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip companies will offer a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
What is a builders skip?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the frequent skip hired in the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builder’s skip is great for most building and demolition projects, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 yard builders skip is the biggest size that can be used for hefty waste such as dirt, concrete, rock and gravel.
