Barnstaple Skip Hire FAQs

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge commercial size skips that are used predominantly within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for organisations that produce significant amounts of waste.

Can I dispose of electronic items in the skip?

Electrical items like television sets, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so should not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical products need to be segregated from other waste. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly manner.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Barnstaple?

Our aim is to give you the most affordable skip hire service in Barnstaple. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have a skip situated on the highway or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the additional expense of the skip permit.

How long can I hire a 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. When 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 pick it up as quickly as possible.

Am I able to throw all sorts of waste in my skip?

This is among the most frequent questions people have about hiring a skip. The main thing to keep in mind is that you can load your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of waste that can result from garden projects, building work and home clearances.

Some of the most frequent things which we collect in our skips include soil, wood, hedge cuttings, kitchen units, toilets, and other household products.

There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This includes any electronic goods (fridges and freezers, televisions and computers for example), tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all considered hazardous waste materials, and so getting rid of them must follow an entirely different process to ensure they do not cause damage to the environment.

How big is a builder’s skip?

A builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These will be the largest containers that can be used to discard substantial building and construction materials such as stone, bricks, rubble or soil.

The builder’s skip is perfect for a number of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or clearing the shed, these substantial skips are usually the most affordable option available.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be there when it is delivered. Then you can be sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip is positioned exactly where you need it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company property, particularly when gates limit access.

On the other hand, when this is not achievable, you don’t have to worry. Simply tell us when you are making your order, and then we will take care of everything.

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

The contents of your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer centre. Here the rubbish will be separated by machinery and by hand into numerous waste materials, such as metal, cardboard, concrete and wood. Processing the waste in this way helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.

How big is the mini skip?

If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household waste, the mini skip could be just what 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 handle many tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be positioned on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.

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

What skip sizes have got a drop door?

Virtually all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, making them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.

A skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the skip, especially with heavy materials, such as garden soil and bricks, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, such as household furniture.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Barnstaple?

Usually, it will be possible to have a skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But in order to do this, you will need to have permission from your local council in Barnstaple, which is called a skip permit. We will organise this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for the permit, and it may sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

Will a skip hire company from Barnstaple deliver my skip?

To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work in partnership with a variety of local and national companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we can supply customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.

Is it ok to fill the skip above the level load mark?

Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it dangerous to move, and you will then have to remove any contents above the level load mark. This also means you are not allowed to use sheets of wood, doors or any other object, since this will increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty to ensure that skips are not overfilled or overweight before transporting them.

Please be sure you select the appropriate size of skip for your needs and get in contact if you’re unsure which size is best. We will be happy to help.

When will my skip be delivered?

We can usually supply skips to Barnstaple the following working day when an order is made before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our online booking platform gives you a variety of delivery dates to select from. So whether you would like a skip delivered ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.

Other areas covered include Totnes, Honiton, Northam, Great Torrington, Colyton, Brixham, Tavistock and Braunton.
