Below are a few of the frequently asked questions we receive with regards to our skip hire and recycling service.
Bovey Tracey Skip Hire FAQs
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you have a company in Bovey Tracey and wish to get rid of large amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a great option. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips available.
As the label suggests, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike standard skips, which are lifted by using chains.
Do you deliver skips across Devon?
In addition to delivering our range of skips to Bovey Tracey, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Devon. Through a network of regional and national skip businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Bovey Tracey, Honiton or Kingsbridge, we have got it covered.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is probably the most frequent skip which is ordered across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is great for most building and demolition work, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip is the biggest option which you can use for hefty waste materials including soil, concrete, rock and gravel.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Bovey Tracey?
To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work in partnership with a variety of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we can supply customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Bovey Tracey?
The cost of getting a skip in Bovey Tracey is determined by the size of skip you want. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you need a bigger skip, like an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also be more if you need to have a skip on the road, since you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
Electronic products like TVs, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore cannot be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic goods must be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
Where does my rubbish be taken to once the skip is picked up?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste gets separated into a variety of waste types, such as wood, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!
How long can I hire a skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, this will give you sufficient time to fill up the skip. However, if you do need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, should you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just tell us when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
What skip sizes do you provide?
We offer a full range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip ideal for modest DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A common choice for larger tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Bovey Tracey businesses which produce a big amount of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What skip sizes can have a drop door?
The vast majority of skips can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the skip, especially with heavy materials, like soil and gravel, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, such as furniture.
Can I fill the skip higher than the side?
You must not fill the skip beyond the level load line. When you load it above the tip of this mark, it means that your skip will not be safe and secure to transport, and you might be asked to take off any extra waste before it can be picked up.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will make sure your skip is delivered on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.
Although we can’t guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
It is important to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will in most cases incur a fee for the wasted trip.
What kinds of rubbish can I get rid of in a skip?
You are allowed to put a variety of waste into the skip. This includes timber, ceramic tiles, metal or rubble from a household clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, soil and stone from garden jobs are permitted too. Cupboards from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be thrown in the skip.
However, there are some things that you are not allowed to put in a skip because of the potential environmental or health risks they may trigger.
You can’t throw in your fridge, laptop or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things consist of hazardous materials in one kind or another. They need to be discarded separately from your general waste.
If you want hazardous waste removal, we may be able to organise an independent service for this material. Feel free to email for further details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
How much waste will the mini skip hold?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some household waste, a mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to take on many tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be placed on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.
Although most frequently chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can even tackle small commercial jobs.
What is the process of hiring a skip in Bovey Tracey?
Hiring a skip in Bovey Tracey with us is incredibly easy. Decide on the skip size you want and enter a handful of details about where and when you need your skip to be delivered. You can then pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
If I want a skip on the road in Bovey Tracey, will I need to get a permit?
In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you want your skip to be placed on land outside of your company or residence, you must get authorisation from your local authority in Bovey Tracey, which is referred to as a permit. If necessary, we would be happy to arrange this for you, so it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for your license, and you should be aware before ordering that securing the licence will often take up to 2 working days.
Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be at your property when the skip is going to be delivered, however it does help. Being there when your skip arrives means that you can ensure the lorry is given full access and that the skip will be placed exactly where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is hired to business premises, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, for those who can’t be around for the delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you place your order, and we will organise everything from there.
