Brandon Skip Hire FAQs

What skip sizes have a door?

For anybody who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is perfect for disposing of hefty building and demolition waste, as it can be walked in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop door, although these are more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically small enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our very best to ensure a skip with a drop door is delivered.

How big is a builders skip?

The builders skip is regarded as the frequent skip that is hired across the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is ideal for most building and construction work, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 yd builder’s skip is the largest option which you can use for heavy waste including garden soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.

Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?

It usually is a good idea to be in when anybody delivers something to your property. That enables you to ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it.

The same applies if you have a business. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.

However, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Brandon?

To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work with a wide range of local and national companies. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to guarantee we can provide customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.

Can I throw electrical items in my skip?

No, you cannot dispose of old electronic waste products in your skip. This can include such things as printers, hobs, tumble dryers, refrigerators and televisions. Electrical objects can’t be discarded in your skip as they can include hazardous materials and components.

Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Brandon?

This is determined by the size you need and whether you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the cheapest choice. The most costly and largest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in business settings.

What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in a skip?

You are able to fill up your skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly generated from home clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include timber, top soil, bricks, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you put in your skip would depend on the size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, in the event that you will be using the skip for heavy construction waste such as concrete or soil, the largest size you would be able to get is the 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials cannot be discarded in the skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Brandon?

Generally, it is possible to have a skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to do this, you will need to have approval from your local council in Brandon, which is called a skip permit. We are able to order this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council do impose a fee for this permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a massive skip used to get rid of large volumes of waste. These skips are primarily for commercial use but can be hired by domestic customers as well. Having said that, you will want lots of space since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger than the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.

As a result of the size, these containers should only be used for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and rubble.

What happens to the waste in the skip?

When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into the various waste materials, including timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This makes sure that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

You can normally have your skip for as many as 2 weeks from your delivery date. You are able to provide a chosen pick up date at the time you place your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have finished, and we will prepare the collection. In most cases, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a bit longer during busy times.

How much waste will fit in a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the most compact skip available from skip firms and is good for small DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms provide a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

Do you deliver to other areas in Suffolk?

Absolutely. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to supply skips to both residential and commercial customers across Suffolk and anywhere else within the UK.

How long does it take to get a skip in Brandon?

We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you have asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you complete your booking before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will normally have your skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver, we strive to offer you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery site, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can result in a charge for the wasted journey.

Am I allowed to pile up the waste in my skip?

It is important never to overfill a skip. You can not pass the level load mark indicated along the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it is very hazardous to transport. Which means that when you overload your skip, you may be asked to take off the surplus rubbish. Regardless of how secure you feel the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. That is dangerous and is therefore prohibited.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

We can provide a full-range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for modest DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A popular option for larger tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard skip.

For Brandon companies which produce a big volume of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.
