Axbridge Skip Hire FAQs

Am I allowed to load my skip higher than the side?

It is important to never overfill the skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it will become very unsafe to move. Which means that when you overload your skip, you could be asked to take away the surplus rubbish. Regardless of how secure you feel the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. That is hazardous and is therefore not allowed.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

Having a skip with a drop door makes loading rubbish into it a lot easier. This is especially true with hefty materials like garden soil or concrete, which can then be loaded into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away big bulky items like pieces of furniture easier too.

The majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, however this can sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a number of different sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is ideal for small household projects.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a fantastic choice for garden shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial waste disposal task to deal with, a builder’s skip could be the best option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label indicates, they are the most popular sizes used by builders for building waste, such as soil and stone. However they can just as well be hired for household rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also provide 10-16 yard containers and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. To get more details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ensure your skip is delivered when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the following day.

Although we are not able to promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

You should ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will most likely incur a charge for the wasted trip.

What is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some household waste, the mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to deal with many tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be positioned on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

Although most often chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also tackle small commercial jobs.

What size roll-on roll-off containers do you offer?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are large commercial size skips that are used primarily within the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for businesses that generate significant volumes of waste materials.

Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?

No, you cannot dispose of old electrical waste products in a skip. This includes items like printers, cookers, tumble dryers, freezers and tv sets. Electronic products can’t be discarded in your skip since they can include hazardous materials and components.

As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.

Can you deliver skips across Somerset?

Sure, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skip sizes to areas across Somerset, including Axbridge, Frome, Wells and Midsomer Norton. So wherever you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

How long can I keep the skip for?

Usually, you can keep the skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you don’t have to hurry through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?

You don’t have to be at home when your skip is being delivered, but it can help. Being in when the skip arrives means you can ensure the lorry is given full access and that your skip will be located exactly where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is being hired to a company premises, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

Even so, in the event you can’t be available during the time of delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you place the order, and we will arrange everything from there.

What size is a builder’s skip?

A builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These will be the biggest skips that can be used to get rid of weighty building and construction waste such as stone, concrete, gravel or soil.

The builders skip is great for a wide range of jobs. If you are having an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning out the garage, these big skips are usually the most cost-effective solution available.

Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Axbridge?

In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like the skip to be located on land outside of your company or home, you need to get authorisation from the local council in Axbridge, which is known as a permit. If necessary, we would be happy to arrange this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the permit, plus you should know before placing your order that securing the licence will often take up to two working days.

What is the cost of skip hire in Axbridge?

This depends upon the skip size you require and if you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the cheapest option. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in business settings.

We make use of a network of both local and nationwide companies to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are thoroughly vetted to be sure they satisfy the high expectations we require when it comes to service, price and environmental performance.

What will happen to my rubbish when the skip is collected?

Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into various waste streams, like timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What can I put in the skip?

You can put a variety of rubbish into the skip. This can include timber, bathroom tiles, plastics or rubble from a house clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, soil and rock from garden jobs are allowed too. Cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also go in the skip.

There are, however, things that you can’t put in a skip a result of the possible ecological or health risk they may cause.

You cannot get rid of your fridge freezer, television or your old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things include hazardous elements in one form or another. They should be discarded separately from your general rubbish.

If you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to schedule an independent service for this waste. Please email us for further details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
