Blandford Forum Skip Hire FAQs
What size is a builders skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip is the size of skip most frequently used for building and construction work. There are typically two different sizes that may be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that can be used to dispose of significant amounts of construction and demolition waste, like earth, concrete and bricks.
Although branded a builders skip, these can of course be used for a number of other household and industrial waste disposal jobs.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
The regular hire time frame will be 2 weeks from the delivery date. Having said that, at the time you book the skip, you can provide a pick up date that is ideal for you. Of course, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is finished with sooner than anticipated, let us know, and we will get it picked up as soon as possible.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into various waste streams, including wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you would like the skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or home, you need to receive permission from the local authority in Blandford Forum, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we would be happy to organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the permit, plus you should be aware before ordering that securing the permit can often take up to 2 working days.

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container that can be used to transport large amounts of waste materials. Generally, these type of skips are hired for commercial purposes. However, domestic customers can also hire them. It is very important consider the area they take up, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they must only be used for lightweight waste such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and stone.

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

How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest size delivered by skip firms and is good for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms offer a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
Can I fill the skip above the side?
You should not load your skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means that your skip is not safe and secure to transport, and you can be asked to take off the extra waste prior to it being collected.
What skip sizes can you deliver?
Skips are offered in a number of sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is perfect for small household projects.
The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold around 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a great option for attic clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more significant rubbish disposal job to handle, a builder’s skip might be the best choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, these are the most common sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, such as clay and rubble. But they can just as well be hired for household waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.
We also offer 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For additional details about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
Can I get a skip that has a drop down door?
If you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is great for disposing of heavy building and demolition waste, as it can be pushed in the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop door, however these are typically less common. The reason being these sizes are generally low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to make sure a skip which has a drop door is provided.
What waste am I allowed to put in my skip?
This is amongst the most popular questions people have about our service. The main thing to remember is that you may fill up your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are so many kinds of rubbish which can result from garden projects, building work and house clearances.
Among the most frequent things which we find in our skips include soil, wood, tree trimmings, cupboards, baths, as well as other household objects.
There are some things that you are not allowed to put in the skip. For example, any electronic items (fridge freezers, TVs and cookers for example), old car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. These are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them needs to comply with an entirely different process to ensure they do not cause harm to the environment.
Can I get rid of electronic products in my skip?
No, you can not throw old or unwanted electrical waste items in your skip. This can include things like laptops or computers, microwaves, tumble dryers, fridges and television sets. These items can’t be disposed of in the skip because they can include dangerous materials and components.
Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
