Aldeburgh Skip Hire FAQs

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

The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a massive container that can be used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are predominantly for business use but can be hired by residential clients also. However, you will require plenty of space since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger compared to the average skip you will see on the roadside.

Due to the size, roro containers can only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of concrete and bricks.

What are the different skip sizes to pick from?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Aldeburgh, you will have multiple options to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 yard container, sometimes called the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for small home clearances and DIY work.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most common sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also means they are well suited for house clear ups including large items such as household furniture and beds.

We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for customers with even bigger waste disposal needs. These skips are only suited to light waste materials, so they can’t be used to get rid of soil or rubble.

For more information regarding the various sizes available, such as measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Can I load my skip higher than the top?

It is very important to not overfill a skip, as you risk being told to take off excessive waste prior to it being collected. No matter what size you hire, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since moving an overloaded skip is hazardous, as objects could fall and lead to personal injury or damage to other people.

To avoid this situation, please be sure you order a skip size appropriate for your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full and you have extra waste to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.

How big is the mini skip?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to take on many jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be situated on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.

Although most often hired by household customers, the mini skip can even tackle small commercial jobs.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?

Electric powered items such as TVs, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore can not be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic products have to be segregated from other materials. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

How quick can you deliver a skip in Aldeburgh?

When your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We will usually provide a following day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, as to be on public property (for example a street), you will have to gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to many factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it to be delivered in a morning or afternoon slot.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Aldeburgh?

The cost of getting a skip in Aldeburgh depends on the size of skip you require. The cheapest skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you require a bigger skip, like an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also be more if you need to have your skip on the road, because you will require 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 usually a good idea to be available when anyone delivers something to your home. That enables you to make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be dropped precisely where you need it.

The same thing goes if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

The builders skip is regarded as the frequent skip hired across the country. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is ideal for most building and construction jobs, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 yard builders skip will be the biggest option that can be used for heavy waste materials like soil, concrete, rock and rubble.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Aldeburgh?

Ideally, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. If you are carrying out a domestic job, then the drive will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public property, you will need to get a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be dropped on the street, grass verge or other public property in Aldeburgh. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be issued for you. An additional cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

Do you deliver to other areas in Suffolk?

We offer a national skip hire and recycling service by using a network of approved and fully licensed local companies. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Aldeburgh, Clare, Eye, Woodbridge or another area in Suffolk, we can assist.

What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?

If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets segregated into various waste streams, including wood, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

You can normally hire your skip for up to 14 days from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the collection will be as convenient as possible, there is the option of providing a preferred collection day when you place your order.

Alternatively, just tell us when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.

It can take a bit longer to collect your skip during busy periods, but we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.

What types of waste materials can I put in the skip?

Before hiring your skip, you must make sure that the kind of waste you want to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials have to be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.

A few examples of waste types you may put in your skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use your skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, including wood, dirt, rubble, metals and concrete.

Some examples of prohibited items include things like electronic items, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore have to be disposed of separately from any general rubbish.

Will a Aldeburgh skip hire company deliver my skip?

To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a wide range of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to offer customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.

What size skips can have a door?

For anybody who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is made for getting rid of hefty building and construction waste, as it can be pushed in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop down door, however these are typically less common. This is because these sizes are typically low enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a skip with a drop door is supplied.

Other areas covered include Clare, Eye, Woodbridge, Newmarket, Leiston, Brandon, Ipswich and Sudbury.
