Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Billericay?
If at all possible, you should have the skip left on a hard surface. For anyone who is carrying out a domestic job, then a driveway is going to be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. On the other hand, if neither is available, the road or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public property, you have got to obtain a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be positioned on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Billericay. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be issued on your behalf. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
How big is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are fantastic for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them ideal for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and old baby toys to paving slabs and soil. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you having to make several trips to the local recycling centre.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Billericay?
The cost of hiring a skip in Billericay is determined by the size of skip you want. The cheapest option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you require a larger skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you want to have a skip placed on the road, because you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
How much waste can a builders skip hold?
As the name implies, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most commonly hired for building and demolition jobs. There are generally two skip sizes which can be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which you can use to dispose of large amounts of building and demolition waste, such as earth, rubble and rock.
Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for various other domestic and industrial waste disposal tasks.
What sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Billericay, you have various options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, often referred to as the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for modest house clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also means they are perfect for household tidy ups involving large items such as household furniture and beds.
We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These containers are only suited to lightweight materials, so they can’t be used to dispose of garden soil or rubble.
For more details about the different capacities available, such as proportions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
No, you cannot put old electrical waste items in a skip. This can include such things as printers, microwaves, dishwashers, refrigerators and monitors. Electrical items can’t be discarded in a skip since they can have hazardous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.
Where will the waste be taken to when the skip is collected?
The contents of the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer centre. Here the contents will be segregated by machinery and also by hand into different waste materials, like metal, plastics, stone and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.
Am I allowed to fill my skip above the top?
No. You can only fill up your skip up to the level load mark. Stacking rubbish up over this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you may be asked to get rid of the extra waste before your skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.
Should I be in when the skip is delivered?
It usually is a good idea to be in when anybody delivers anything to your home. You can then ensure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be placed just where you need it.
The same applies if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, if it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge commercial size skips used primarily in the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for companies that produce significant amounts of waste materials.
Will you deliver skips across Essex?
We offer a national skip hire and recycling service using a network of verified and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Billericay, Leigh-on-Sea, Tiptree, Maldon or any other location in Essex, we are able to assist.
What skip sizes can have a drop down door?
Virtually all skips can be delivered with a drop door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the skip, especially with heavy materials, like garden soil and concrete, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, like pieces of furniture.
What types of waste can I put in my skip?
You can load the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from garage clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, top soil, rubble, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you throw in your skip will depend on the skip size you have hired, because there is a weight limit. For example, when you will be using your skip for heavy building waste like rubble or dirt, the biggest size you would be able to use is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials cannot be disposed of in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, that gives you plenty of time to load the skip. However, if you need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, should you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just tell us once you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.
