Alfreton Skip Hire FAQs

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

The contents of the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machinery and also by hand into various waste streams, like soil, paper, concrete and timber. Sorting the waste in this way helps to increase the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is always to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.

Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric products need to be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This can include all electric powered products such as tumble dryers, televisions, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, that will give you sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you need a little more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Naturally, if you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just tell us once you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Alfreton?

Usually, it will be possible to have your skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to get this done, you need to get consent from the local council in Alfreton, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for the license, and it can sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

Will the skip come with a drop down door?

The vast majority of skip sizes can be provided with a drop down door, making them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the container, particularly with heavy materials, such as garden soil and gravel, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.

Is it ok to fill my skip higher than the top?

You must not fill your skip beyond the level load mark. If you load it over the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be secure to move, and you might be asked to take off any excess rubbish prior to it being collected.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be at home when it is delivered. Then you can ensure that the lorry has complete access and that the skip is placed exactly where you need it. This also is true for those who have a skip delivered to company property, especially when gates restrict access.

On the other hand, if this is not possible, you don’t need to worry. Just tell us when you are placing your order, and then we will take care of the rest.

Can you deliver skips across Derbyshire?

Yes. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we are able to provide skips to residential and commercial customers throughout Derbyshire and anywhere else within the UK.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a massive skip used to get rid of large quantities of rubbish. These bins are predominantly for business use but can be hired by residential clients also. Having said that, you will require lots of room as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger in comparison to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, roro skips should only be provided for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and bricks.

When will my skip be delivered?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We can typically provide a next day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, because to go on public property (such as a road), you need to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.

As a result of many factors that could impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it arriving within a AM or PM slot.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Alfreton?

A local skip company will likely deliver your skip in Alfreton. We work with a network of both local and national companies to allow us to provide our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are thoroughly assessed to make sure they satisfy the high standards we require regarding service, price and environmental performance.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips come in a wide range of sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small domestic tasks.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a good option for garage clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more significant waste disposal job to undertake, the builder’s skip might be the most suitable choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label suggests, they are the most typical sizes ordered by builders for building waste, such as clay and stone. However they can equally well be used for household waste such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also supply 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For further information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

When you have a small amount of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip may be the ideal choice. What size is known as a mini skip is different from company to company, determined by what sizes they provide.

2 cubic yards is the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to have a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. The price is dependent on the specific size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are best for household work including modest DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

Am I able to throw all sorts of waste in a skip?

Prior to ordering a skip, it is essential to ensure that the sort of waste you wish to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Waste types it is possible to throw in your skip include home goods like furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use a skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, like bricks, dirt, rubble, metals and concrete.

Examples of prohibited items include electrical products, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately from general waste.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Alfreton?

This is determined by the skip size you require and whether you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced choice. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings. To receive an immediate price for skip hire in Alfreton, simply enter the delivery postcode into the search box above.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The name originates from the fact that they are the most typical sizes used by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial containers are ideal for a multitude of domestic and commercial jobs. They are the largest sizes which can be used for heavy builders waste like garden soil, rubble and bricks.
