Aldridge Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
Electric powered objects such as televisions, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and so cannot be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered goods must be separated from other rubbish. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
Will my skip have a drop down door?
Generally, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop-down door, depending on size, availability and location. If you need a drop down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip with a drop door is mainly beneficial if hiring a big builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow your rubbish directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, as they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How do you order a skip?
We have developed our online booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. The first task is to type in your postcode to view all the different skip sizes we can supply in Aldridge. Pick the right size to meet your requirements and give us the details of where and when you would like the skip delivered. You then make payment with our secure payment platform, and we will send an email to verify the transaction once your order is done!
How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?
The builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. They are the biggest containers that can be hired to dispose of heavy building and construction waste such as stone, bricks, gravel or garden soil.
A builders skip is great for a variety of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning out the loft, these big skips are often the most cost-effective choice available.

Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?
You don’t really need to be at home when your skip will be delivered, however it will help. Being home whenever the skip is being delivered means you can make sure the driver can be given full access and that the skip can be dropped exactly where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is being delivered to company premises, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
However, for those who can’t be around for delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place the order, and we will arrange everything from there.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Aldridge?
In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you would like your skip to be placed on land outside of your company or residence, you need to secure permission from your local authority in Aldridge, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we will gladly arrange this for you, so it’s one less thing to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the permit, and you should know before booking that securing the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
Am I allowed to fill up the skip above the level load mark?
No, you can only fill your skip up to the level load line. Piling rubbish up over this line will make it dangerous to transport, and you can be asked to take off the surplus waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
You can usually have a skip for up to two weeks from your delivery date. You may give a preferred collection date when you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have finished, and we will organise the collection. Usually, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer during hectic periods.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a massive skip that is used to get rid of large volumes of waste. These containers are predominantly for business use but can be used by residential customers too. Having said that, you will need lots of room because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger when compared to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, these containers should only be used for light materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and bricks.
How soon can you deliver a skip in Aldridge?
We will make sure 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 chosen skip the very next day.
Although we can’t promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You should make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will most likely incur a charge for the wasted journey.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact skip available from skip firms and is ideal for small DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip companies will offer a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Where will my rubbish go once the skip is collected?
Once you have finished with your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Aldridge where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in the skip?
Before you hire your skip, you must ensure that the type of rubbish you intend to discard is allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials must be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Waste types you could put in a skip include household items like furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You can also use your skip to dispose of building and demolition rubbish, like wood, dirt, stone, metals and gravel.
Some examples of forbidden items include things like electrical items, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently must be disposed of separately from any general rubbish.
How much will skip hire in Aldridge cost?
The price of getting a skip in Aldridge will depend on the size of skip you require. The least expensive option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, like an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also be more if you need to have the skip placed on the highway, as you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Will you deliver skips across West Midlands?
Certainly. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we can offer skips to domestic and commercial customers across West Midlands and anywhere else within the UK.
