Below are a few of the common questions we receive regarding our skip hire service.

Bewdley Skip Hire FAQs

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ensure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the next day.

Although we are not able to promise an exact delivery time, we will do our best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You will need to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted trip.

What happens to the rubbish once the skip is picked up?

The items in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling facility. Here the contents will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into numerous waste streams, including metal, plastics, hardcore and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Bewdley?

Our goal is to offer the most affordable skip hire service in Bewdley. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you want to have the skip located on the road or other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of a skip permit.

What sort of waste can you dispose of in a skip?

This is among the most popular questions people have about hiring a skip. The most important thing to consider is that you can fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of waste that could come from garden projects, building work and household clearances.

Among the most frequent items that we pick up in skips include garden soil, wood, hedge trimmings, kitchen units, bathroom suites, and various household items.

There are some items that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This can include any electronic goods (fridges and freezers, monitors and printers for example), car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them must follow an entirely different process to make sure they do not cause damage to the environment.

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

You don’t need to be at home when your skip is going to be delivered, however it does help. Being in whenever the skip is delivered means that you can ensure the lorry can be given full access and that your skip will be positioned exactly where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is being delivered to company property, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.

However, in the event you can’t be around during delivery, don’t worry. We just ask you to let us know when you place the order, and then we will organise things from there.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large industrial size skips that are used predominantly in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for organisations that generate significant volumes of waste materials.

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are fantastic for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.

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

Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Bewdley?

This will depend on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a skip permit when it is put on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if your skip is on private property, like a drive or inside your company premises.

If you need to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, so we can make the required arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on private property, it will save you some money.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

Typically, you can keep a skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t need to hurry through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is full ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.

Is it okay to fill my skip above the level load mark?

It is very important never to overfill a skip, as you risk being told to remove excessive waste before it can be picked up. Whatever size you hire, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, because moving an overloaded container will be hazardous, as objects could drop and cause injuries or damage to other people.

To prevent this situation, please make sure you hire a size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full but you have additional waste to get rid of, we are happy to organise an exchange.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The label comes from the fact that they are the most popular sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These big containers are great for a wide variety of household and commercial projects. They are the biggest skip sizes which you can use for heavy builders waste including top soil, rubble and concrete.

What different sizes do skips come in?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Bewdley, you have multiple options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is excellent for modest home clearances and DIY work.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also means they are suitable for household clearances including large objects like pieces of furniture and beds.

We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even bigger waste disposal needs. These containers are only suited to lightweight waste, so they can’t be used to dispose of soil or stone.

For additional information regarding the different sizes available, including dimensions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Will a skip hire company from Bewdley deliver my skip?

Since we offer a national skip hire service, we utilise a diverse network of approved companies. These include small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental standards.

Can I throw electronic items in my skip?

Electrical objects including TVs, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so can not be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electrical objects need to be separated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

Can I have a skip which has a drop door?

Typically, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop-down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, since it enables you to wheelbarrow rubbish directly into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, because they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Will you deliver to other areas in Worcestershire?

Certainly. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we are able to offer skips to residential and industrial customers throughout Worcestershire and anywhere else in the UK.
