Attleborough Skip Hire FAQs
What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial commercial size skips used primarily in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for organisations that produce significant quantities of waste materials.
Is it ok to fill up my skip above the level load line?
Unfortunately not. You are only allowed to fill your skip up to the level load line. Loading rubbish up above this line will make it dangerous to move, and you may be told to take away the excess waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and it can also make it overweight.
Will a Attleborough skip hire company deliver my skip?
As we offer a national waste management service, we utilise an extensive network of verified and approved businesses. These include small family-run skip hire firms to national waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental requirements.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip?
After you have finished filling up your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility either in or local to Attleborough where we will sort the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Attleborough?
This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a skip permit if it is placed on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if the skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or on your company premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know during the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on private land, it will save you some pounds.
How quick can you deliver a skip in Attleborough?
We can in most cases deliver skips to Attleborough the following working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking system will give you a variety of delivery dates to select from. So whether you need a skip delivered ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
What is a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builders skip is the size of skip most frequently used for building and demolition projects. There are usually two sizes that can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that can be used to get rid of large amounts of building and demolition waste materials, like earth, rubble and bricks.
Although labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for multiple other household and business waste disposal jobs.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?
Generally, the majority of skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you need a drop down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, as it allows you to wheelbarrow waste into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, since they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How much will skip hire in Attleborough cost?
This depends on the size you need and if you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the cheapest choice. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in industrial settings.

What waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
This is one of the most frequent questions people have about skip hire. The most important thing to consider is that you may load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of waste that could result from garden work, building work and home clearances.
Among the most frequent things which we collect in our skips include dirt, wood, hedge cuttings, kitchen units, bathroom suites, as well as other household objects.
There are some things that you are not allowed to put in the skip. This consists of any electrical products (fridges and freezers, televisions or laptops for example), old tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste, and so disposing of them has to comply with a completely different procedure to ensure they do not cause damage to the environment.
Am I able to throw electrical products in my skip?
No, you cannot put old or unwanted electrical waste products in a skip. This can include items like laptops or computers, cookers, dishwashers, refrigerators and monitors. These items can’t be thrown in the skip since they can include hazardous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
How do I hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you would like to hire. Let us know whether the skip is going to be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on local authority property (like the street). Next, choose the day you need your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and make payment using our secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Attleborough on the date you have selected.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
You don’t need to be at your property when your skip will be delivered, however it will help. Being there when your skip is due for delivery means that you can make sure the driver is given complete access and that the skip will be dropped precisely where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is being delivered to business property, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
However, when you can’t be around at the time of delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you book your order, and we will arrange things from there.
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can usually hire the skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, there is the choice of providing a preferred collection time when making your order.
Alternatively, simply let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It might take a bit longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, but we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.

What is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip provided by skip companies and is good for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip firms offer you a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
