What is classed as being a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builders skip means the size of skip most frequently supplied for building jobs. There are usually two different sizes that can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips which can be used to get rid of significant volumes of construction and demolition waste materials, like soil, rubble and bricks.

Although they are branded a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for various other residential and commercial waste disposal tasks.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

In general, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, depending on the size, availability and location. If you need a drop down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip that has a drop door is mainly helpful if you are hiring a large builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow rubbish directly into the skip. This isn’t so important for midi and mini skips, since they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Bishop’s Stortford?

Our goal is to provide the cheapest skip hire service in Bishop’s Stortford. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip that you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you need to have a skip located on the street or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the added expense of the skip permit.

Can I get rid of electronic products in my skip?

No, you can not dispose of old or unwanted electrical waste products in your skip. This can include items like computers, cookers, tumble dryers, fridges and televisions. These products can’t be disposed of in the skip as they can contain dangerous materials and components.

As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Bishop’s Stortford?

A local skip firm will most likely deliver your skip in Bishop’s Stortford. We work with a network of both local and national providers to enable us to offer our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully assessed to make certain they fulfill the high standards we demand when it comes to service, price and environmental performance.

How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are big commercial size skips that are used primarily in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for organisations that generate significant quantities of waste materials.

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small containers are perfect for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.

They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and broken toys to paving slabs and concrete. With a capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you needing to make multiple journeys to the local recycling centre.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

No, you don’t have to be home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we are able to gain access to the place you need it located, we will take care of it all.

When you are not likely to be in, simply provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when placing your order. For example, you might want the skip to be located at a particular area of your property. Or you might want to ensure the skip doesn’t prevent use of your garage.

No matter what the case might be, tell us when ordering, and then we will make sure your instructions are passed on to the lorry driver.

Is it ok to load the skip higher than the top?

It is important to not overload your skip, as you risk being asked to remove excess waste before it can be picked up. No matter what size you hire, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, as moving an overloaded skip can be unsafe, as objects could fall and result in injuries or damage to others.

To prevent this problem, please be sure to hire a size suitable for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have more waste to get rid of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.

What types of waste am I allowed to get rid of in a skip?

Your skip can be used to get rid of many different types of waste materials. We are used to collecting and processing a wide variety of items from construction work, garden projects and property clearances. A few examples of permitted waste types include:

  • Home furnishings
  • Tree trimmings
  • Soil
  • Bricks
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many materials are accepted, so whether you need to throw out furniture, plastic materials, wood or fabric, we can normally take your rubbish away.

The quantity and items you discard in your skip can vary according to which size skip you have hired. Skips have a weight limit for safety. So if you want to discard garden soil and rubble, as an example, the largest size container you would be able to use is the 8 cubic yard skip.

Are there items that I can’t put in the skip?

There are a few materials you are not able to dispose of in the skip. The reason behind this is that some items incorporate hazardous materials which can cause damage to the environment. They can also be damaging to human health, so they need to be disposed of separately under UK regulations.

Some examples of the items that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC monitors
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How do I hire a skip in Bishop’s Stortford?

You then pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and then prepare to have your skip delivered on the date selected.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

You can in most cases have a skip for as many as 2 weeks from your delivery date. You are able to provide a chosen collection date when you confirm your order.

What sizes do skips come in?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Bishop’s Stortford, you will have numerous options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for small domestic clearances and DIY work.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also makes them ideal for house clear ups including bulky items such as pieces of furniture and beds.

We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only appropriate for light materials, so they can not be used to get rid of soil or stone.

For further details about the various sizes offered, including dimensions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?

After you have finished with your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre in or local to Bishop’s Stortford where we will sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

Other areas covered include Berkhamsted, Cheshunt, Hoddesdon, Sawbridgeworth, Hitchin, Letchworth, Harpenden and Buntingford.
