Ashby-de-la-Zouch Skip Hire FAQs

Am I able to put electrical products in the skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods need to be kept separate from general waste to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electronic items such as cookers, televisions, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.

What are the different skip sizes available?

Skips are available in a selection of different 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, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is good for small household jobs.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a great option for loft clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to undertake, the builder’s skip might be the most suitable choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title implies, they are the most popular sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, like soil and rubble. However they can just as well be hired for domestic waste such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

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

Guide to skip sizes

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

The normal hire term will be two weeks from the delivery date. However, at the time you order the skip, you can select a collection date that will work for you. Of course, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if your skip is loaded earlier than expected, let us know, and we will pick it up as quickly as possible.

We will usually make collections within 48 hours. But, it is important to understand that this may not be possible during busy times. Once collected, the skip will be transported to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed and sorted.

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

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most commonly supplied for construction and demolition work. There are typically two different skip sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that can be used to dispose of large volumes of building and demolition waste, including garden soil, concrete and rock.

Although they are branded a builder’s skip, they can be used for many other household and business waste disposal jobs.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Ashby-de-la-Zouch?

In most cases, it will be possible to have your skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But to do this, you have got to have consent from the local authority in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, which is called a skip permit. We are able to order this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take 24-2 days for them to authorise this.

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large industrial size skips that are used mainly within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for companies that generate large volumes of waste.

Can I have a skip which has a drop down door?

Typically, almost all skips can be provided with a drop down door, depending on the size, availability and area. If you require a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip with a drop door is mainly helpful when choosing a large builder’s skip, because it allows you to wheelbarrow rubbish into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, as they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How can I hire a skip online?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip shall be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (like the road). After that, choose the date you need the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. That’s it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Ashby-de-la-Zouch on the day you have chosen.

Is it ok to stack up the waste in my skip?

It is important to not overfill the skip. You should not pass the level load mark indicated on the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it is very unsafe to transport. This means that when you overfill the skip, you could be required to remove the excess rubbish. However safe you believe the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This is hazardous and is not allowed.

How long will it take to get a skip in Ashby-de-la-Zouch?

We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you confirm your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver your skip, we endeavour to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery location, as failed delivery attempts can lead to a charge for a wasted journey.

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

For those who have a small amount of rubbish to dispose of, a mini skip could be the perfect choice. What size is called a mini skip is different from company to company, based on what sizes they supply.

The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to have a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. Cost is dependent on the particular size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are perfect for domestic tasks including modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Ashby-de-la-Zouch?

Our goal is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Ashby-de-la-Zouch. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip that you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have a skip positioned on the highway or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the added expense of a skip permit.

Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?

It is usually best if you can be there when anybody delivers something to your property. That enables you to make sure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be located just where you need it.

The same thing goes for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.

Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.

What things can I put in the skip?

It is possible to load the skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly generated from house clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include timber, garden soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you put in your skip depends on which skip size you have hired, as there is a weight limit. For example, if you will be using your skip for heavy building waste including stone or dirt, the largest size you would be able to hire is the 8 yard skip.

Some materials cannot be disposed of in the skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.
