Below are some of the frequently asked questions we get with regards to our skip hire and recycling service.
Bradley Stoke Skip Hire FAQs
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?
The roll-on roll-off skip, often known as a RORO, is a massive container that can be used to get rid of large amounts of rubbish. These bins are primarily for business use but can be hired by domestic clients as well. Having said that, you need a lot of space since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger when compared to the average skip you will see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off skips can only be provided for light materials such as plastics, timber and paper, so they are not appropriate for disposing of concrete and bricks.
Do I need to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
It is always best if you can be available when anybody delivers something to your house. That allows you to make sure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be placed just where you need it.
The same applies for those who have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.
However, should it be unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most commonly used for construction and demolition projects. There are generally two sizes that can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that can be used to get rid of large volumes of building and demolition waste materials, such as soil, rubble and stone.
Even though they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for various other residential and business waste disposal tasks.
How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are ideal for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are 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 concrete. Having a volume of around 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you having to make several visits to your local recycling centre.
Can I throw electrical items in my skip?
Electronic products including TVs, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so can not be placed in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric objects need to be segregated from other materials. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.
How can I hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you want to hire. Tell us if the skip is going to be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or public property (such as the road). Then, select the day you want your skip to be delivered. Check your order details and then make payment with our secure online payment platform. That’s it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Bradley Stoke on the date you have chosen.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can typically keep the skip for as long as 2 weeks from your date of delivery. You are able to provide a preferred pick up date at the time you place your order. Alternatively, you can let us know once you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare the collection. In most cases, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer over busy times.
Where will the rubbish be taken to once the skip is picked up?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into different waste streams, such as timber, metals, plastics, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Will you deliver skips across Gloucestershire?
Along with delivering skips and containers to Bradley Stoke, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Gloucestershire. By utilising a network of local and national skip hire and recycling companies, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering in Bradley Stoke, Stroud or Chipping Sodbury, we have got you covered.
Is it okay to fill the skip above the top?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will probably have to remove any contents above the level load mark. This means you cannot make use of sheets of wood, doors or some other item, as this will increase the height of the skip. We have a legal responsibility to ensure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure that you choose the appropriate sized skip to meet your requirements and get in touch if you are uncertain which size you need. We would be glad to help.
How quickly can you deliver a skip to Bradley Stoke?
We will ensure your skip is delivered when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the next day.
Although we cannot promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You have to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will usually incur a charge for the wasted trip.

Who will deliver my skip?
We utilise a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Bradley Stoke and the rest of the country. Each of our partner skip companies are verified and evaluated to make certain they satisfy our standards for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
Which skip sizes have got a drop down door?
Generally, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you need a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip that has a drop door is primarily beneficial when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, because it allows you to wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, as they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What kinds of rubbish am I able to put in a skip?
This is among the most popular questions people have about hiring a skip. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you can fill up your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of rubbish that will result from garden projects, construction work and home clearances.
Among the most frequent things which we see in skips include soil, wood, bush trimmings, kitchen cabinets, sinks, and various household items.
However, there are some materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This includes any electronic objects (fridges, monitors or computers for example), old car tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and getting rid of them needs to adhere to an entirely different procedure to make sure they do not cause harm to the environment.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Bradley Stoke?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a permit if it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if your skip is on private property, such as a driveway or on your business premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on your own land, it will save you a few pounds.
