Amesbury Skip Hire FAQs
Is it ok to stack up waste in my skip?
It is important never to overfill your skip, as you risk being told to remove surplus waste before it can be picked up. Irrespective of what size you order, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, as transporting an overloaded container will be unsafe, as objects could fall and cause personal injury or damage to others.
To prevent this problem, please be sure you hire a size suitable for your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full but you have additional rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.
Will a Amesbury skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Amesbury. We utilize a network of both local and national providers to allow us to provide our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully vetted to ensure they fulfill the high standards we require in terms of customer service, price and environmental performance.
What is classed as a builders skip?
The builders skip is probably the most common skip used across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is fantastic for most building work, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 yd builders skip is the biggest option that you can use for hefty waste like soil, concrete, stone and gravel.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge commercial size skips used predominantly within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for organisations that generate large amounts of waste materials.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in the skip?
Unfortunately not, because electronic products such as old TVs, fridges, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly way.
How long can I hire a skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, this provides you with sufficient time to fill up your skip. However, if you do need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, in the event you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your pick up. Just let us know once you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
What size skips have got a drop door?
Generally, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop-down door, depending on size, availability and area. If you require a drop down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful when you are hiring a large builder’s skip, as it enables you to wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, since they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What types of rubbish am I able to dispose of in a skip?
You are allowed to fill up your skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly generated from garage clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include wood, dirt, concrete, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you put in your skip would depend on which skip size you have ordered, because there is a weight limit. For instance, in the event that you are using your skip for heavy construction waste including stone or dirt, the maximum size you would be able to get is an 8 yard skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in the skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.

Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Amesbury?
Normally, it will be possible to have your skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to get this done, you need to have permission from your local council in Amesbury, which is known as a skip permit. We can organise this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for this permit, and it may sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest skip available from skip firms and is good for small DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip companies will offer a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be in when the skip is delivered. You can then make sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip will be located precisely where you want it. The same is true if you have a skip delivered to company property, particularly if gates restrict access.
Having said that, if that isn’t possible, you do not have to be concerned. Just tell us when making your booking, and then we will handle the rest.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Amesbury?
This depends upon the skip size you need and if you will need 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 biggest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used mainly in industrial settings.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip?
The items in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling facility. Here the rubbish will be separated by machines and by hand into various waste streams, like soil, paper, stone and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.
