Arnold Skip Hire FAQs
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Arnold?
In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you want the skip to be placed on land outside of your business or home, you will have to obtain authorisation from the local council in Arnold, which is known as a permit. If required, we would be happy to organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the skip license, and you should be aware before placing your order that obtaining the permit can often take up to two working days.
Do all skips have a drop door?
The vast majority of skip sizes can be supplied with a drop down door, making them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the container, especially with heavy materials, like garden soil and gravel, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, like household furniture.
Do I need to be home when the skip is delivered?
You don’t really need to be at your property when the skip will be delivered, however it will help. Being in when the skip is being delivered means that you can ensure the lorry can be given complete access and that your skip can be dropped exactly where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is being hired to a company property, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, if you can’t be around for the delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you book your order, and we will arrange things from there.
How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are fantastic for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furniture and broken baby toys to paving blocks and soil. Having a volume of around 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you having to make multiple journeys to your local recycling centre.
Do you deliver skips across Nottinghamshire?
Certainly. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to provide skips to household and commercial customers across Nottinghamshire and elsewhere in the UK.
Will a Arnold skip hire company deliver my skip?
Since we provide a UK-wide waste management service, we utilise a comprehensive network of approved businesses. These range from small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they satisfy our high customer service and environmental standards.
Is it ok to load the skip higher than the top?
It is important to not overload your skip, as you risk being required to remove surplus waste before it can be collected. Irrespective of what size you order, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, because moving an overloaded container is unsafe, as rubbish could fall and lead to injuries or damage to others.
To prevent this problem, please ensure you hire a skip size suited to your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full but you have some further rubbish to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
How much does skip hire in Arnold cost?
The price of hiring a skip in Arnold is determined by the size of skip you require. The cheapest skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a bigger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also be more if you want to have your skip placed on the road, as you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
What will happen to the waste?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into a variety of waste types, which includes wood, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste is recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
Generally, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you do not need to rush through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
Am I allowed to get rid of electrical items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods have to be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This includes all electric powered items including cookers, TVs, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.
How long does it take to get a skip in Arnold?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver your skip, we try to offer you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery location, as failed delivery attempts can lead to a charge for the wasted trip.

Hiring a skip in Arnold through us is incredibly easy. Choose the skip size you require and input a couple of details about when and where you want your skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then prepare to have your skip delivered.
What waste can I put in the skip?
You may use a skip to throw out many different waste types. We are experienced in picking up and handling a multitude of materials generated from construction jobs, garden projects and household clean-ups. Examples of allowed waste materials include things like:
- Hedge cuttings
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Cabinets and units
Many different waste types are usually allowed, therefore whether you need to discard metals, plastic materials, wood or fabric, we can usually take your waste away.
The quantity and materials you throw in the skip may vary depending on the size skip you hired. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you want to get rid of soil and gravel, as an example, the largest size you will be permitted to hire will be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Are there any items which I can’t discard in the skip?
There are a few materials which you will not be allowed to discard in your skip. The reason behind this is that these products include hazardous materials that may damage the environment. They could also be harmful to human health, therefore they have to be disposed of separately under UK laws.
A few of the products that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- Computer screens
- Battery packs
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is probably the most common skip that is ordered in the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is perfect for most building and construction tasks, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip is the biggest size that you can use for heavy waste matter including garden soil, concrete, stone and rubble.
How many different skip sizes are there?
Skips are available in a selection of different sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is great for small household projects.
Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold around 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yard is an excellent choice for garden shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
If you have a more substantial waste disposal task to tackle, a builder’s skip might be the most suitable choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title implies, they are the most popular sizes used by builders for building waste, including soil and hardcore. But they can just as well be used for household waste such as old furniture or kitchen units.
We can also offer 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are big commercial scale skips used mainly within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for companies that produce large amounts of waste.
