Banbury Skip Hire FAQs

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Banbury?

To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Banbury, enter your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display which sizes we offer in your area and how much each one will cost to order. If the skip will be on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.

Am I allowed to throw all sorts of rubbish in the skip?

It is possible to put a variety of waste types into your skip. This includes wood, tile, metal or bricks from a household clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, top soil and stone from garden work is allowed also. Worktops and units from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also go in a skip.

However, there are a few items that you can’t put in a skip because of the potential environment or health risks they can trigger.

You can’t throw in your freezer, television or your old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items include hazardous materials in one form or another. They must be discarded separately from normal waste.

If you want hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to schedule a separate collection for this material. Feel free to contact us for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the next day. In some instances, we can even offer a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed when going through the online order process.

Where does my rubbish be taken to once the skip is picked up?

After you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Banbury where we separate the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

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

No, you do not need to be at home when we are delivering your skip. So long as we are able to gain access to the place you want it located, we can manage everything.

When you are not going to be at home, simply let us know any relevant delivery instructions when you book your order. For example, you may need the skip to be located on a particular side of the driveway. Or you may want to be sure that the skip doesn’t obstruct access to your garage.

Whatever the situation may be, tell us when ordering, and we will make sure the instructions are passed to the delivery driver.

Will my skip come with a drop door?

In general, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, depending on skip size, availability and location. If you need a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip which has a drop door is primarily beneficial if choosing a big builder’s skip, since it allows you to wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, as they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How big is the mini skip?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to take on numerous jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be positioned on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.

Although most often hired by residential customers, the mini skip can also handle small commercial jobs.

How big is a builders skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The label originates from the fact that they are the most common sizes that are ordered by builders and tradespeople.

These big skips are perfect for numerous domestic and industrial projects. These are the biggest skip sizes which you can use for weighty builders waste like garden soil, stone and gravel.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips come in a wide range of different sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. Each container is 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 roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small household tasks.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold roughly 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a good option for garage clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to handle, a builder’s skip may be the smartest choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

Am I allowed to fill the skip above the level load mark?

It is very important to not overload your skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take off excess waste before it can be picked up. Regardless of the size you order, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, because moving an overloaded skip can be dangerous, as waste could drop and result in personal injury or damage to others.

To avoid this situation, please ensure that you hire a size appropriate for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have extra rubbish to dispose of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
