Bradford-on-Avon Skip Hire FAQs
Which skip sizes have a drop down door?
Virtually all skip sizes can be supplied with a drop door, which makes them easy to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the skip, particularly with weighty materials, like garden soil and gravel, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, like household furniture.
Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Bradford-on-Avon?
This depends on where the skip will be located. You will only require a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit when your skip will be on private property, like a drive or on your company premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on your own property, it will save you a few pounds.
Do I have to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be in on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip will be positioned precisely where you want it. The same is applicable when you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially when gates restrict access.
However, if this is not achievable, you don’t need to worry. Just let us know when placing your order, and we will take care of everything.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into a number of waste types, which includes timber, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Do you use local skip hire companies in Bradford-on-Avon?
A local skip hire company will likely deliver your skip in Bradford-on-Avon. We make use of a network of both local and national companies to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are assessed to make sure they match the high principles we demand with regards to customer service, price and environmental performance.
How do you hire a skip in Bradford-on-Avon?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip is going to be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or public property (such as the road). After that, choose the day you need your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. That is it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Bradford-on-Avon on the day you have selected.
Am I allowed to load the skip higher than level load line?
It is important never to overload your skip, as you run the risk of being required to remove excess waste prior to it being picked up. No matter what size you order, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as transporting an overloaded bin is unsafe, as materials could fall and cause injury or damage to others.
To prevent this situation, please ensure you hire a size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full and you have further waste to get rid of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
We offer a full variety of skip sizes to domestic and industrial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the different sized skips to choose from, with a rough idea of the amount of waste each size is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags

How much waste will the mini skip hold?
If you have a small amount of waste to throw out, a mini skip might be the best choice. What size is called a mini skip is different from company to company, according to what sizes they supply.
The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The price is based on the specific size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for residential jobs like small DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you want it put on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can normally deliver skips to Bradford-on-Avon the next working day when an order is made before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking program provides you with a number of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you need your skip delivered ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
Do you deliver skips across Wiltshire?
Yes. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to provide skips to both household and commercial customers across Wiltshire and anywhere else within the UK.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
The regular hire time frame is 14 days from the delivery date. However, when you book the skip, you can select a collection date that is perfect for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is loaded sooner than expected, contact us, and we will pick it up as soon as possible.
We will normally be out to get your skip within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to remember that this may not be possible at busy periods. Once collected, your waste will be taken to your local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed and sorted.
Can I throw electrical products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects must be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered goods like tumble dryers, televisions, kettles, computers and even hair straighteners.
What can I put in my skip?
You are allowed to fill the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from loft clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include timber, garden soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you put in your skip depends on which size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight limit. For example, when you will be using your skip for heavy building waste like rubble or soil, the largest size you would be able to get is an 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials cannot be discarded in a skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you operate a business in Bradford-on-Avon and want to dispose of large amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container might be a perfect choice. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that can be hired.
As the label suggests, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to normal skips, which are picked up by using chains.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
The phrase builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The name originates from the fact that these are the most common sizes used by builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are fantastic for an array of residential and commercial projects. These are the largest size skips that you can use for weighty builders waste like soil, rubble and bricks.
Other areas covered include Marlborough, Corsham, Devizes, Westbury, Amesbury, Wilton, Warminster and Highworth.
