Bishop’s Castle Skip Hire FAQs
What happens to the rubbish?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into a number of waste types, such as wood, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Am I allowed to put electrical items in my skip?
Electrical items including TVs, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste and therefore cannot be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic products must be separated from other waste. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly manner.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a massive container that can be used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These skips are mainly for business use but can be hired by household customers too. However, you need a lot of room as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger in comparison to the typical skip you will see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off containers can only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and rubble.
How much does skip hire in Bishop’s Castle cost?
The cost of hiring a skip in Bishop’s Castle will depend on the size of skip you want. The cheapest skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general clearances. If you want a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also increase if you want to have your skip positioned on the highway, since you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?
You don’t really need to be home when the skip will be delivered, but it will help. Being in when your skip is being delivered means you can ensure the delivery driver can be given full access and that your skip will be located exactly where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is delivered to business property, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, if you can’t be available for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you place the order, and we will arrange things from there.
What is a builder’s skip?
The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These are the largest containers that can be hired to discard heavy building and construction waste materials such as rock, concrete, gravel or soil.
A builder’s skip is great for a wide range of projects. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing out the garden shed, these big skips are often the most affordable option available.
Will a Bishop’s Castle skip hire company deliver my skip?
To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a number of local and national companies. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to provide customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
You can normally keep a skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, you have the option of offering a preferred collection date when you make your order.
Alternatively, simply let us know when you have finished loading up your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the next working day.
It may take a little longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, but we will always endeavour to be there as quickly as possible.
Am I able to put all types of rubbish in the skip?
Before you hire a skip, it is important to make sure that the sort of waste materials you need to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials need to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you may put in a skip include household items like furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use a skip to throw out building and construction waste, such as wood, soil, stone, metals and gravel.
Examples of forbidden items include things like electrical goods, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore need to be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We provide a full range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip great for modest DIY projects and domestic clearances. A popular choice for larger sized tasks, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard skip.
For Bishop’s Castle companies which produce a significant amount of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What is a mini skip?
For those who have a small amount of rubbish to dispose of, a mini skip could be the perfect solution. What size is referred to as a mini skip is different from business to business, determined by what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 yard container as their smallest option. The cost is based on the actual size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for residential work such as modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Nearly all skips can be provided with a drop door, which makes them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the bin, especially with heavy materials, such as dirt and bricks, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky items, such as household furniture.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will make sure your skip will be provided when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we are not able to promise a precise 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 location, as a failed delivery effort will normally incur a charge for the wasted journey.
Am I allowed to load up my skip higher than level load mark?
No. You are only allowed to fill the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste materials up over this line makes it dangerous to move, and you may be told to remove the excess waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Bishop’s Castle?
If at all possible, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface area. For anyone who is carrying out a domestic project, then a driveway is going to be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. However, if neither is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public land, you have got to get a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be positioned on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Bishop’s Castle. If this is needed, we will request the license to be issued on your behalf. An extra cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
