Bletchley Skip Hire FAQs
Will you deliver to other areas in Buckinghamshire?
Of course, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skip sizes to locations throughout Buckinghamshire, such as Bletchley, Woburn Sands, Aylesbury and Newport Pagnell. So no matter where you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
As soon as 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 waste gets sorted into a number of waste streams, including wood, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Will my skip have a drop down door?
Nearly all skip sizes can be delivered with a drop down door, making them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the skip, especially with weighty materials, like soil and gravel, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, such as furniture.
How long will it take to get a skip in Bletchley?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a day that best suits you. We can usually give you a next day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, as to be on public property (such as a street), you need to gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.
Due to numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it arriving within a morning or afternoon slot.
What types of rubbish am I allowed to throw in a skip?
A skip may be used to discard a variety of types of waste. We are experienced in picking up and handling a wide variety of materials produced from building work, garden landscaping and home clean-ups. A few examples of permitted waste types can include:
- Pieces of furniture
- Hedge cuttings
- Bricks and rubble
- Bathroom toilets and sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Most waste materials are permitted, so whether you would like to discard metals, plastics, wood or unwanted toys, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The volume and things you throw into your skip will vary according to the size skip you chosen. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you need to dispose of top soil and rubble, for example, the largest size you would be permitted to hire will be the 8 yard builders skip.
Are there items that I can’t throw in the skip?
There are a few materials that you will not be permitted to dispose of in your skip. The main reason for this is that these products incorporate hazardous materials which can harm the environment. They can even be harmful to human health, and so they have to be discarded separately under UK legislation.
Some examples of the products which are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- PC monitors
- Battery packs
- Chemical substances
Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?
No, you cannot dispose of old or unwanted electronic waste items in a skip. This includes such things as computers, hobs, tumble dryers, fridges and television sets. These products can’t be thrown in the skip because they can have hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
What is the size of a builders skip?
The builders skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. They are the biggest containers used to dispose of weighty building and demolition waste such as rock, concrete, gravel or garden soil.
The builders skip is ideal for a wide array of projects. If you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing the loft space, these substantial skips are usually the most cost-effective solution available.
How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact size available from skip firms and is designed for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies will offer a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you do not have to be at home when we are delivering the skip. Providing we can access where you want it positioned, we are able to manage everything.
If you are not likely to be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you place the order. For example, you may need the skip to be dropped at a particular part of the drive. Alternatively, you may want to ensure that the skip does not block entry to your garage.
No matter what the case might be, provide the information when you place your order, and we will make sure the instructions will be passed on to the delivery driver.
What is the cost of skip hire in Bletchley?
Our goal is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Bletchley. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you want to have the skip situated on the road or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of a skip permit.
What size skips do you deliver?
We are able to provide a full-range of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip suitable for small DIY jobs and household clearances. A common choice for larger sized jobs, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Bletchley companies which have a large volume of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can usually keep the skip for as many as 2 weeks from the delivery date. You may give a chosen collection date when you make your order. Otherwise, you can let us know after you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare your collection. Normally, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take a little longer over hectic periods.
Am I allowed to fill the skip higher than level load mark?
It is very important to not overload a skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take out excessive waste prior to it being collected. Irrespective of what size you hire, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, because transporting an overloaded bin can be unsafe, as materials could fall and lead to injuries or damage to others.
To avoid this issue, please make sure you hire a size suitable for your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some more waste to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you have a company in Bletchley and wish to dispose of large quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a fantastic option. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers on the market.
As the name implies, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike normal skips, that are lifted by using chains.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Bletchley?
Since we offer a national waste management service, we utilise a comprehensive network of approved companies. These range from small family-run skip hire firms to national waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental principles.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Bletchley?
