Biddulph Skip Hire FAQs
Am I able to dispose of all kinds of rubbish in the skip?
It is possible to throw a wide array of rubbish into your skip. This can include wood, floor tiles, plastics or bricks from a property clearance. Plant and bush clippings, soil and stone from garden jobs are allowed as well. Cupboards from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also go in your skip.
There are, however, some things that you cannot put in a skip a result of the potential ecological or health risk they can trigger.
You can not get rid of your fridge, computer or your old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items include hazardous elements in one type or another. They should be disposed of separately from your general waste.
Should you require hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to arrange an independent collection for this material. Feel free to get in touch for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
What happens to the rubbish when the skip is collected?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get sorted into various waste streams, including stone, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge skip used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These skips are primarily for industrial use but can be used by domestic clients as well. However, you should have a lot of room because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger than the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, RORO skips should only be provided for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and bricks.
What size is a builder’s skip?
A builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These are the largest containers that can be hired to get rid of substantial building waste materials such as rock, concrete, gravel or soil.
A builder’s skip is ideal for a wide array of projects. If you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning the garage, these substantial containers are often the most affordable option available.
Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Biddulph?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you would like your skip to be located on land outside of your business or residence, you will need to secure authorisation from your local authority in Biddulph, which is known as a permit. If required, we would be glad to organise this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for your license, plus you should know before placing your order that getting the permit can often take up to two working days.
How much will skip hire in Biddulph cost?
Our goal is to provide you with the cheapest skip hire service in Biddulph. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you need to have the skip situated on the road or other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the extra cost of a skip permit.
Will a Biddulph skip hire company deliver my skip?
We utilise a large network of both regional and national skip hire companies to supply skips to our customers in Biddulph and the rest of the UK. All of our partner businesses are verified and evaluated to make sure they satisfy our expectations for cost, service, recycling and reliability.
How can I hire a skip?
We have built our booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. The first task is to type in your delivery address to view all the different skip sizes we are able to provide in Biddulph. Pick the right size to meet your requirements and enter the details of where and when you want your skip delivered. After that you can make payment with the secure payment platform, and we’ll send an email to confirm your order as soon as your order is complete!
Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?
It usually is best if you can be in when anyone delivers anything to your house. That allows you to ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be placed exactly where you need it.
The same applies if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, should it be unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Will you deliver skips across Staffordshire?
Sure, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply skips to areas throughout Staffordshire, such as Biddulph, Kidsgrove, Madeley and Lichfield. So no matter where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Will the skip come with a drop down door?
Typically, nearly all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon size, availability and location. If you require a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip with a drop door is mainly helpful if choosing a large builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow rubbish into the skip. This is not so important for mini and midi skips, because they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How quickly can you deliver a skip to Biddulph?
We can typically supply skips to Biddulph the following working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking system provides you with a number of delivery dates to select from. So whether you need a skip to arrive ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?
Electrical items like televisions, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste and therefore can not be placed in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered goods must be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
When you have a small amount of rubbish to throw out, a mini skip may be the best solution. What size is referred to as a mini skip is different from business to business, depending on what sizes they supply.
2 cubic yards is considered the most common size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The price is based on the particular size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for household jobs such as small DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you want it put on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
The regular hire period is two weeks from the delivery date. However, when you order your skip, you can tell us a collection date that will work for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is fully loaded earlier than anticipated, let us know, and we will collect it as soon as possible.
Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this may not be possible during busier times. Once collected, your skip will be transported to your local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed and sorted.
Is it okay to fill up the skip above the top?
It is important to not overfill your skip. You should not pass the level load mark shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it will become very hazardous to move. This means that if you overfill your skip, you could be asked to take away the surplus waste. However secure you feel the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This is unsafe and is prohibited.
How many different skip sizes are there?
Skips are available in a number of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is ideal for small residential jobs.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a fantastic choice for attic clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
When you have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to sort out, a builder’s skip might be the smartest choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name implies, these are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for building waste, such as clay and rubble. But they can just as well be used for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.
We also offer 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For more info on all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
