Bath Skip Hire FAQs

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

The regular hire period will be 2 weeks from your delivery date. However, at the time you book the skip, you can choose a collection date that is best for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if the skip is loaded sooner than anticipated, tell us, and we will collect it at the earliest opportunity.

Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to remember that this may not always be possible at busier periods. Once collected, the waste will be taken to your local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed and sorted.

What is classed as being a builders skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The term stems from the fact that these are the most popular sizes ordered by builders and tradespeople.

These large skips are ideal for a wide variety of domestic and business jobs. They are the biggest skips that you can use for hefty builders waste including soil, stone and bricks.

Am I allowed to fill up the skip above the top?

Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it hazardous to transport, and you will probably have to empty any contents over the level load line. This means that you cannot use sheets of wood, doors or any other item, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty of care to make sure that bins are not overfilled or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure you choose the correct size of skip for your requirements and get in touch if you’re unsure which size is best. We will be happy to help.

Will you deliver skips across Somerset?

Yes, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skip sizes to locations across Somerset, such as Bath, Frome, Wells and Portishead. So no matter where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

What size roll-on roll-off skips are available?

The roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of large quantities of rubbish. These bins are mainly for business use but can be used by household customers too. Having said that, you need lots of room since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger when compared to the typical skip you will likely see on the roadside.

Due to the size, roll-on roll-off containers can only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and rubble.

What will happen to the rubbish once the skip is picked up?

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into several different waste streams, including timber, soil and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste is recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!

Do you use local skip hire companies in Bath?

To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work with a number of local and national businesses. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to offer customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.

Can I put electronic products in the skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate from general rubbish to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric items including washing machines, televisions, toasters, laptops and even hair straighteners.

Am I allowed to throw all types of rubbish in my skip?

You can load the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from loft clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include timber, soil, rubble, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.

What you put in your skip will depend on which size you have hired, as there is a weight limit. For instance, in the event that you will be using the skip for heavy building waste including bricks or dirt, the largest size you can hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials can not be discarded in a skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.

What are the different skip sizes to pick from?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Bath, you have several options to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard container, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for modest household clearances and DIY work.

Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also makes them perfect for house clear ups involving bulky items such as furniture and beds.

We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for anyone with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only appropriate for light materials, so they can not be hired to dispose of soil or stone.

For additional details about the different capacities available, including dimensions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

How can I order a skip online?

We have developed our online booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to type in your postcode to see all the different skip sizes we are able to deliver in Bath. Pick the best size to meet your needs and provide us with the details of when and where you would like your skip to be delivered. You can then make payment through the secure payment platform, and we’ll send an email to verify the order as soon as your order is complete!

Do I have to be there whenever the skip is delivered?

It is always a good idea to be in when anybody delivers anything to your property. That enables you to ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it.

The same thing goes if you have a business. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

When will my skip be delivered?

If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the following day. Sometimes, we will even provide a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed as part of the order process.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are great for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and broken baby toys to paving blocks and concrete. Having a volume of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip will save you having to make multiple trips to your local recycling centre.

Which size skips have a door?

Nearly all skips can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them much easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.

Having a skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the bin, particularly with weighty materials, such as soil and bricks, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load large and bulky items, such as furniture.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Bath?

In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you would like the skip to be located on land outside of your company or home, you will need to obtain authorisation from the local council in Bath, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we would be glad to arrange this on your behalf, so it’s one less point to think about. The council will charge a fee for the skip license, plus you should be aware before placing your order that getting the licence can sometimes take up to two working days.

Other areas covered include Frome, Wells, Portishead, Shepton Mallet, Burnham-on-Sea, Radstock, Clevedon and Street.
