Bloxwich Skip Hire FAQs
What size is a builders skip?
The builders skip is the most popular skip which is ordered in the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builder’s skip is ideal for most building and demolition jobs, which is where the name originates from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip is the biggest option which can be used for hefty waste materials such as garden soil, concrete, stone and rubble.
Can I throw away electronic items in the skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods must be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electrical goods such as tumble dryers, televisions, kettles, computers and even hair straighteners.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container used to get rid of significant volumes of waste. Mostly, these type of containers are hired for industrial applications. However, household customers can also order them. It is very important take into account the space they will occupy, because they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be hired for light-weight materials such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of soil and hardcore.

To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Bloxwich, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display the sizes we offer in your area and how much each option costs to hire. If your skip is going on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.
Can I stack up the waste in my skip?
You should not fill the skip beyond the level load mark. If you load it over the tip of this mark, it means your skip will not be safe and secure to transport, and you might be asked to remove any extra waste before it can be collected.
Am I allowed to put all sorts of waste in a skip?
A skip may be used to dispose of a variety of types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and processing numerous items from building jobs, garden landscaping and property clearances. Some examples of allowed waste products can include:
- Household furniture
- Hedge trimmings
- Garden soil
- Stone and concrete
- Bathroom sinks
- Cabinets and units
Many different waste materials will be accepted, and so whether you want to get rid of metals, plastic materials, wood or clothing, we can normally take your waste away.
The volume and items you discard in the skip may vary depending on the size skip you have ordered. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you would like discard soil and bricks, for example, the biggest size container you will be permitted to use is the 8 yard builders skip.
Are there any items which I can’t put in the skip?
There are some materials you are not allowed to dump in your skip. The reason behind this is that some items contain hazardous materials which can cause damage to the environment. They can even be hazardous to human health, and so they must be discarded separately under UK laws.
Some examples of the goods that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- Computer screens
- Chemical substances
How soon can you deliver a skip in Bloxwich?
We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your booking before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we strive to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery site, as failed delivery attempts will lead to a charge for the wasted trip.
How large is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size delivered by skip firms and is good for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip firms will provide a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
The materials in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer facility. Here the rubbish will be sorted by machines and by hand into different waste materials, such as soil, plastics, concrete and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is always to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.
Can you deliver skips across West Midlands?
We offer a national skip hire and waste management service through a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you want skip hire in Bloxwich, Smethwick, Willenhall, Stourbridge or another location in West Midlands, we can assist.
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Bloxwich?
This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a skip permit if it is put on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if your skip is on private property, like a driveway or on your business premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know during the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position your skip on private land, you will save some money.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
The standard hire time frame will be two weeks from your delivery date. Having said that, when you order your skip, you can let us know a collection date that is ideal for you. Of course, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is loaded sooner than expected, contact us, and we will get it collected as quickly as possible.
We will usually complete collections within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to keep in mind that this is not always the case at busy periods. Once collected, the waste will be taken to your local waste transfer facility, where it will be processed and sorted.
How many different skip sizes are available?
Skips come in a wide range of sizes to match various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small household projects.
The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yard is a fantastic choice for shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more significant rubbish disposal task to take on, a builder’s skip could be the best choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label implies, these are the most common sizes hired by builders for construction waste, including soil and rubble. But they can just as well be used for household rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We can also deliver 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. To get more details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
Will a skip hire company from Bloxwich deliver my skip?
Since we offer a national skip service, we utilise a diverse network of verified and approved companies. These can include small family-run skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental principles.
How do I order a skip in Bloxwich?
Ordering a skip in Bloxwich through us is incredibly easy. Decide on the skip size you require and enter a handful of details about where and when you want your skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then prepare to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?
For anybody who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is perfect for getting rid of heavy building and construction rubbish, as it can be walked in to the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop door, though these are less common. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our very best to make sure a container which has a drop door is provided.
Do I have to be home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be at home when the skip is delivered, but it does help. Being home when the skip arrives means that you can make sure the driver is given full access and that the skip is located precisely where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is being delivered to company premises, we will appreciate your support during the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, when you can’t be available for delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you place the order, and then we will organise everything from there.
