Bourne Skip Hire FAQs
How much will skip hire in Bourne cost?
The cost of getting a skip in Bourne will depend on the size of skip you need. The lowest priced option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you need a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you need to have a skip placed on the highway, because you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

What types of waste am I allowed to put in my skip?
You are allowed to load the skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly generated from garage clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include wood, soil, stone, hedge trimmings, household furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you throw in your skip depends on which size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, in the event that you are using a skip for heavy building waste like concrete or dirt, the maximum size you can get is the 8 yard skip.
Some materials can not be discarded in your skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.
Can I have a skip which has a drop down door?
The vast majority of containers can be supplied with a drop down door, which makes them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the skip, especially with heavy materials, like soil and concrete, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, like pieces of furniture.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are great for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furniture and old baby toys to paving slabs and bricks. Having a capacity of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you needing to make multiple trips to your local recycling centre.
Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old or unwanted electronic waste products in a skip. This can include items like computers, cookers, tumble dryers, fridges and television sets. Electric objects can’t be disposed of in the skip because they can include dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?
After you have finished with your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer station either in or local to Bourne where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
How long can I hire the skip for?
You can usually hire your skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, there is the option of providing a preferred collection day when making your order.
Otherwise, just tell us when you have finished with the skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the next working day.
It can take a little while longer to pick up your skip over busy times, but we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.
Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Bourne?
Normally, it is possible to get the skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But in order to do this, you have got to get permission from the local authority in Bourne, which is known as a skip permit. We will arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council do charge a fee for this permit, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be there when it is delivered. You can then make sure the lorry has full access and that the skip is situated exactly where you need it. The same is applicable if you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates limit access.

What size is a builder’s skip?
The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These are the largest skips that can be hired to dispose of substantial building and demolition waste such as stone, bricks, rubble or dirt.
The builder’s skip is perfect for a wide array of projects. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your bathroom or clearing the attic, these big skips are usually the most affordable choice available.
Can I fill the skip above level load mark?
It is important to not overfill a skip. You should not pass the level load line that is shown on the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it is very hazardous to move. This means that when you overload your skip, you could be asked to remove the surplus rubbish. Regardless of how safe you feel the skip to be, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. That is hazardous and is prohibited.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you offer?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large commercial size skips that are used predominantly within the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for organisations that produce large amounts of waste.
