Atherstone Skip Hire FAQs

Will a Atherstone skip hire company deliver my skip?

To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a wide range of local and national businesses. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to provide customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.

What is a mini skip?

When you have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, a mini skip could be the perfect option. What size is called a mini skip varies from business to business, according to what sizes they have.

2 cubic yards is the most common size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to have a 3 yard container for their smallest option. Price is based on the particular size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are best for domestic tasks such as modest DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

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

No. You are only allowed to pack the skip up to the level load line. Piling waste up above this line makes it dangerous to move, and you might be told to get rid of the excess waste before your skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to increase the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.

How many different skip sizes are available?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Atherstone, you have numerous sizes to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is excellent for modest domestic clearances and DIY work.

Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most frequent sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their large capacity also means they are perfect for household clearances involving large items like pieces of furniture and beds.

We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even bigger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only appropriate for lightweight materials, so they can’t be hired to dispose of soil or rubble.

For further information regarding the various capacities available, such as proportions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products need to be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electric products like tumble dryers, TVs, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.

Can I dispose of all types of waste in a skip?

A skip may be used to get rid of many different types of waste materials. We are used to collecting and handling a wide variety of materials produced from construction work, garden landscaping and house tidy-ups. A few examples of permitted waste types can include:

  • Home furnishings
  • Garden cuttings
  • Garden soil
  • Bricks and rubble
  • Bathroom suites
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many waste types are generally permitted, so whether you would like to dispose of furniture, plastics, timber or old toys, we can normally take your rubbish away.

The volume and items you put into the skip can vary depending on which size skip you have ordered. Skips have a weight limit for safety purposes. So if you want to dispose of top soil and hardcore, as an example, the biggest size container you would be able to use will be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

What sort of items am I not allowed to put in a skip?

There are several items which you will not be able to dump in the skip. The reason behind this is that some items include hazardous components which can be damaging to the environment. They may also be harmful to human health, therefore they need to be disposed of separately within UK legislation.

A few of the products which are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. Sometimes, we can even give you a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery days are confirmed when going through the order process.

What will happen to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?

If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get sorted into a number of waste streams, such as wood, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the waste is recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

How long can I keep the skip for?

You can usually have your skip for as many as 14 days from your date of delivery. You can provide a preferred collection day at the time you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know when you have finished, and then we will plan your collection. In most cases, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer over busy periods.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Atherstone?

This depends upon where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if the skip is on your private property, like a drive or inside your business premises.

If you need to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can place the skip on private land, you will save some pounds.

Am I able to get a skip that has a drop door?

Generally, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip that has a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, as it enables you to wheelbarrow waste directly into the skip. This is not so important for mini and midi skips, because they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How can I hire a skip in Atherstone?

Ordering a skip in Atherstone with us is incredibly straightforward. Select the skip size you will need and enter a few details about when and where you need the skip delivered. You can then pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and schedule to have your skip delivered on the date selected.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Atherstone?

Our aim is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Atherstone. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip that you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have the skip situated on the highway or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the added expense of the skip permit.

How big is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial commercial size skips used mainly in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for businesses that generate significant quantities of waste.

Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?

It is usually a good idea to be there when anyone delivers something to your property. That enables you to make sure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be placed exactly where you need it.

The same thing applies if you 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.

However, should it be unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

What size is a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builders skip means the size of skip most frequently supplied for building work. There are typically two different sizes that may be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers which can be used to get rid of substantial amounts of construction and demolition materials, like garden soil, rubble and bricks.

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