Bakewell Skip Hire FAQs
How long can I hire the skip for?
Normally, you can have a skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you don’t need to hurry through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Bakewell?
If at all possible, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface. For anyone who is doing a domestic project, then your driveway is going to be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. However, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public land, you will need to get a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be dropped on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Bakewell. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be issued for you. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
What is the cost of skip hire in Bakewell?
Our goal is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in Bakewell. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip that you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you want to have the skip located on the street or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the extra price of a skip permit.
Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
No, you cannot put old electrical waste items in a skip. This includes such things as laptops, hobs, dishwashers, freezers and television sets. Electrical products can’t be discarded in your skip since they can contain dangerous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off skip, often known as a RORO, is a huge container that is used to get rid of large amounts of waste. These containers are predominantly for industrial use but can be used by domestic customers too. However, you will require lots of space since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger than the typical skip you will see on the side of the road.
As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off containers should only be hired for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and bricks.
What sort of waste am I able to put in a skip?
Your skip can be used to dispose of lots of different types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and handling lots of materials produced from building jobs, garden projects and home tidy-ups. Some examples of allowed waste materials can include:
- Garden trimmings
- Garden soil
- Bricks and rubble
- Bathroom toilets and sinks
- Cabinets and units
Many different waste types are generally allowed, and so whether you need to throw out furniture, plastic materials, timber or clothing, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The volume and waste types you put in your skip can vary depending on the size skip you have hired. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So to be able to discard top soil and rubble, as an example, the biggest size you would be able to hire will be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Are there items which I can’t discard in the skip?
There are a few items that you are not able to dispose of in the skip. The reason behind this is that some goods contain hazardous components which could cause harm to the environment. They can also be harmful to human health, therefore they must be disposed of separately within UK regulations.
A few examples of the items that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas cylinders
- Computer screens
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Bakewell, you will have various options to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for small house clearances and DIY work.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most frequent sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also makes them perfect for household clearances involving large items like household furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people and businesses with even larger waste disposal needs. These containers are only suited to lightweight waste, so they cannot be used to dispose of garden soil or stone.
To get more information about the various capacities offered, such as dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
When you are selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is great for getting rid of hefty building and construction waste, as it can be pushed in the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop door, although these are typically more uncommon. This is because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a skip that has a drop door is delivered.
Is it ok to fill my skip higher than the top?
Unfortunately not. You are only allowed to fill your skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste materials up above this line makes it dangerous to transport, and you could be asked to remove the extra waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.
Will you deliver to other areas in Derbyshire?
Yes, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skips to locations across Derbyshire, such as Bakewell, Whaley Bridge, Ashbourne and Darley Dale. So wherever you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some domestic waste, the mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to take on many jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be positioned on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.
Although most commonly hired by household customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.
Do I need to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be at home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we are able to gain access to where you want it located, we are able to take care of it all.
If you will not be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when booking your order. For example, you may want the skip to be dropped on a particular part of the drive. Alternatively, you may need to be sure that the skip doesn’t obstruct use of your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, simply let us know when you place your order, and we will make sure your directions will be passed to the delivery driver.
How do I order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip will be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or public property (such as the road). Then, select the date you want the skip to get delivered. Check your order and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. That is it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Bakewell on the date you have chosen.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get segregated into several different waste streams, including stone, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
A builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These are the largest skips that can be used to discard heavy building and demolition waste materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or garden soil.
The builders skip is ideal for a wide range of projects. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing out your loft space, these big skips tend to be the most cost-effective choice available.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Bakewell?
Since we offer a UK-wide skip service, we use an extensive network of verified and approved businesses. These range from small family-run skip hire firms to national waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental principles.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ensure your skip will be provided on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the next day.
Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You should make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted trip.
