Bicester Skip Hire FAQs

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

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

These big skips are ideal for numerous residential and commercial jobs. These are the largest sizes which can be used for weighty builders waste including top soil, stone and gravel.

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

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a large container that is used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These skips are primarily for commercial use but can be used by domestic customers also. Having said that, you will need a good amount of room because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger when compared to the typical skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.

As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off containers can only be used for light materials such as plastics, wood and paper, so they are not suited to disposing of concrete and bricks.

How soon can you deliver a skip to Bicester?

When you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. In some instances, we will even give you a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days are confirmed as part of the order process.

How long can I keep the skip for?

You can typically have your skip for as many as 14 days from your date of delivery. You can provide a chosen pick up date at the time you make your order. Alternatively, you can let us know once you have finished, and then we will prepare the collection. Usually, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take a little longer during hectic periods.

How do you hire a skip?

Ordering a skip should not be difficult. That is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, type in your postcode to look at all the different skips we can deliver to Bicester. Pick which size you wish to order, and confirm whether it is going to be positioned on your own property. Enter in your details and make payment using our secure online payment platform.

As soon as your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with all your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

Who will deliver my skip?

We use a network of both regional and national skip hire businesses to supply skips to our clients in Bicester and the rest of the country. Each of our partner businesses are verified and tested to make sure they meet our standards for price, service, recycling and reliability.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Bicester?

In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you need your skip to be placed on land outside of your company or home, you have got to get authorisation from the local council in Bicester, which is known as a skip permit. If necessary, we would be happy to organise this for you, so it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the permit, and you should know before ordering that getting the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.

What things can I put in the skip?

Before getting your skip, it is important to make sure that the kind of rubbish you wish to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials need to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

Some examples of waste types you may discard in a skip include home items like furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You can also use a skip to discard building and construction waste, like old bricks, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.

Some examples of prohibited items include electronic products, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be disposed of separately from any general waste.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?

For anyone who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop door. This is made for getting rid of hefty building and construction rubbish, as it can be pushed in the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop down door, though these are more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically small enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a container with a drop door is provided.

Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?

Electrical objects such as tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore cannot be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered goods should be segregated from other rubbish. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly way.

Do I have to be home when the skip is going to be delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be there on the day the skip is delivered. You can then ensure that the skip lorry has full access and that the skip is positioned exactly where you need it. This also is true if you have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly when gates limit access.

Having said that, if this is not possible, you do not have to worry. Just tell us when placing your order, and we will take care of the rest.

Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?

You must not fill the skip past the level load line. If you load it over the tip of this mark, it means that the skip will not be secure to move, and you might be asked to remove any extra rubbish before it can be collected.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Bicester?

To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Bicester, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you which skip sizes we provide in your area and how much each option costs to order. If the skip is going to be on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.

Do you deliver skips across Oxfordshire?

We provide a national skip hire service using a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Bicester, Burford, Didcot, Woodstock or another area in Oxfordshire, we can assist.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

The mini skip will be the most compact size offered by skip companies and is designed for small DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies offer you a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

What will happen to the waste?

The rubbish in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling facility. Here the contents will be sorted by machines and by hand into various waste streams, like soil, plastics, concrete and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

Other areas covered include Burford, Didcot, Woodstock, Banbury, Chipping Norton, Henley-on-Thames, Abingdon-on-Thames and Wantage.
