Below are some of the frequently asked questions we receive relating to our skip hire and recycling services.

Bolsover Skip Hire FAQs

Can I put electrical products in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods must be kept separate from general waste to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electrical items such as cookers, TVs, toasters, laptops and even hairdryers.

How many different skip sizes are there?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Bolsover, you have multiple sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for small domestic clearances and DIY work.

Our 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, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most popular sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their substantial capacity also makes them great for house tidy ups involving large items like household furniture and beds.

We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people with even larger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only suitable for light waste, so they can not be hired to get rid of garden soil or concrete.

For additional details about the different capacities available, such as dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Will a Bolsover skip hire company deliver my skip?

To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work in partnership with a number of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to provide customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.

How soon can you deliver a skip in Bolsover?

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 day that you have requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you confirm your booking prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive, we endeavour to provide you with 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 unsuccessful delivery attempts can lead to a charge for a wasted journey.

What is the process of ordering a skip in Bolsover?

We have created our online booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first task is to type in your delivery postcode to view all the different skip sizes we are able to provide in Bolsover. Pick the right size to meet your requirements and provide us with the details of where and when you need your skip delivered. You can then make payment through the secure payment platform, and we’ll send you an email to confirm the order once your order is done!

Is it possible to have a skip that has a drop down door?

For anyone who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is ideal for getting rid of heavy building and construction materials, as it can be walked in the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop door, although these are more uncommon. This is because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you want a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip which has a drop door is supplied.

Is it ok to load up my skip higher than the side?

I’m afraid not. You can only pack your skip up to the level load line. Piling waste materials up over this line would make it unsafe to transport, and you may be told to get rid of the surplus waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or any other objects to increase the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and can also make it overweight.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

If you are looking for a cheap skip to dispose of some household waste, the mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to tackle many tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be positioned on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

Although most commonly chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.

What types of rubbish am I able to dispose of in a skip?

This is one of the most popular questions people have about skip hire. The most important thing to consider is that you may fill up your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of waste that will come from garden projects, construction work and home clearances.

Some of the most common items that we pick up in our skips include dirt, timber, hedge trimmings, kitchen units, toilets, and various other household products.

However, there are some things that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This can include any electrical products (fridge freezers, televisions or computers for example), old tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. They are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them needs to adhere to an entirely different process to ensure they do not result in damage to the environment.

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

This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a permit when it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit when your skip will be on private property, such as a drive or within your company premises.

If you do need to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, and then we can make the required arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place the skip on your own land, you will save some pounds.

Can you deliver to other areas in Derbyshire?

Of course, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply skips to areas across Derbyshire, including Bolsover, Buxton, Matlock and New Mills. So wherever you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to transport huge quantities of waste materials. Predominantly, these type of containers are used for industrial applications. Having said that, residential clients can also use them. It is very important take into account the space they will occupy, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and stone.

What is the cost of skip hire in Bolsover?

The cost of hiring a skip in Bolsover will depend on the size of skip you need. The lowest priced option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you want a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also increase if you want to have the skip positioned on the road, as you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Do I need to be there when the skip is going to be delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be in on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can make sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip can be located precisely where you need it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to business property, particularly if gates limit access.

Having said that, when this is not achievable, you don’t have to stress. Simply let us know when placing your order, and then we will handle everything.

What is a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most commonly hired for construction and demolition work. There are typically two different sizes which can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of substantial amounts of construction and demolition materials, such as dirt, rubble and rock.

Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for various other residential and commercial waste disposal jobs.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip?

The rubbish in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling facility. Here the waste will be segregated by machinery and by hand into various waste materials, such as soil, paper, rubble and wood. Processing the waste in this way helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, that gives you sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, if you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just let us know when you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.

Other areas covered include Buxton, Matlock, New Mills, Derby, Wirksworth, Alfreton, Ashbourne and Shirebrook.
