Blackheath (West Midlands) Skip Hire FAQs
How big is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small containers are perfect for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furnishings and old toys to paving slabs and concrete. With a total capacity of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make multiple trips to your local recycling centre.
Can you deliver skips across West Midlands?
We provide a nationwide skip hire service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you would like skip hire in Blackheath, Sedgley, Bloxwich, Aldridge or another site in West Midlands, we are able to help.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric goods have to be kept separate from general waste to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric items like washing machines, monitors, toasters, laptops and even hairdryers.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can normally supply skips to Blackheath the next working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking system will give you a number of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you want the skip delivered asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Blackheath, you will have various options to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is great for modest household clearances and DIY work.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also means they are great for household tidy ups including large objects like pieces of furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only suited to lightweight materials, so they cannot be used to get rid of garden soil or concrete.
To get more information regarding the various capacities available, such as dimensions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
Do I have to be home when the skip is delivered?
No, you do not need to be home when we are delivering the skip. Provided that we can access where you need it positioned, we will take care of it all.
In case you are not going to be at home, simply let us have any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For example, you might need the skip to be positioned at a particular part of your property. Or you may want to ensure the skip doesn’t prevent entry to your garage.
Whatever the case might be, simply let us know when you place your order, and then we will ensure the directions will be passed to the delivery driver.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Blackheath?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Blackheath, insert your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display which skip sizes we provide in your area and how much each one costs to hire. If the skip will be on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large industrial scale skips that are used predominantly in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for businesses that generate large volumes of waste.
What skip sizes have got a drop down door?
In general, most skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you want a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Having a skip with a drop door is primarily beneficial when hiring a big builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow your rubbish directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini skips, as they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
Typically, you can have your skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you don’t have to hurry through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
What happens to the rubbish in the skip?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get segregated into various waste streams, such as wood, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Is it ok to fill up my skip above the top?
No. You must only fill your skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste up over this line makes it unsafe to move, and you may be asked to take away the surplus waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to raise the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.
Will a skip hire company from Blackheath deliver my skip?
A local skip firm will most likely deliver your skip in Blackheath. We work with a network of both regional and national providers to enable us to provide our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These companies are comprehensively vetted to be sure they meet the high principles we require regarding service, cost and environmental performance.
What waste can I put in a skip?
This is amongst the most frequent questions people have about hiring a skip. The main thing to keep in mind is that you can load your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of rubbish which will result from garden work, construction work and household clearances.
Some of the most frequent things that we find in our skips include dirt, wood, hedge cuttings, kitchen units, baths, as well as other household objects.
There are also some things that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. For example, any electrical objects (fridges and freezers, televisions or printers for example), old tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all classed as hazardous waste, and therefore disposing of them must adhere to a completely different process to make sure they don’t result in damage to the environment.
What is classed as being a builders skip?
The builder’s skip is probably the most frequent skip which is used across the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builders skip is great for most building and construction projects, which is where the name comes from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip is the biggest size which you can use for hefty waste materials like soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Blackheath?
Generally, it will be possible to have a skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But to do this, you will need to have permission from your local authority in Blackheath, which is known as a skip permit. We can order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for your permit, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
