Bridgnorth Skip Hire FAQs
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Bridgnorth?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a skip permit when it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if the skip will be on private property, like a driveway or within your business premises.
Should you need to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place your skip on your own land, you will save a few pounds.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
Typically, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t need to hurry through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is full ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
Can you deliver skips across Shropshire?
In addition to delivering skips to Bridgnorth, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Shropshire. With the help of our network of regional and national waste management and recycling companies, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Bridgnorth, Much Wenlock or Telford, we have got you covered.
Am I allowed to throw away electrical items in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, because electrical items like old televisions, fridges, computers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.
How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?
The builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These are the largest skips used to discard substantial building and construction waste such as rock, concrete, gravel or dirt.
The builder’s skip is ideal for a variety of tasks. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing out your loft space, these substantial containers will often be the most cost-effective option available.
Who will deliver my skip?
To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work in partnership with a wide range of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to provide customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip is delivered when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our best to reach you within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You should ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will often incur a fee for the wasted trip.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into the various waste materials, including timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What is a mini skip?
If you have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, the mini skip might be the ideal choice. What size is referred to as a mini skip is different from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to have a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. Cost depends on the actual size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for residential jobs including modest DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
What size skips can you supply?
We offer a complete range of skip capacities to household and business customers all over the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the massive 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the various sized skips you can choose from, with a rough guide to the amount of waste each skip can hold:

Can I dispose of all sorts of rubbish in a skip?
Before getting a skip, you must check that the type of rubbish you wish to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types you are able to throw in a skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use a skip to discard building and construction rubbish, like old bricks, dirt, stone, metals and concrete.
Examples of restricted items include electrical goods, tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently must be discarded separately from general waste.

To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Bridgnorth, enter your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you which skip sizes we provide in your area and how much each one will cost to hire.

Do all skips have a drop door?
Generally, almost all skips can be provided with a drop door, depending on size, availability and location. If you require a drop door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip that has a drop door is primarily beneficial if hiring a big builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow your waste directly into the skip. This is not so important for mini skips, as they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

We have created our online booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first task is to type in your delivery postcode to check out all the different skip sizes we are able to provide in Bridgnorth. Select the best size to meet your needs and provide the details of where and when you need the skip to be delivered. You then make payment with our secure payment platform, and we’ll send you an email to confirm the order once your booking is complete!
Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
It is always a good idea to be available when anyone delivers something to your house. That allows you to ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be located just where you want it.
The same thing goes for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, should it be unavoidable and access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Is it okay to load the skip higher than the top?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it unsafe to transport, and you may be asked to remove any items over the level load line. This means that you cannot use sheets of wood, doors or some other object, as this will increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty to ensure that skips aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure that you select the correct size of skip to meet your needs and get in touch if you’re unsure which size is best. We will be happy to help.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container used to transport huge amounts of waste. Primarily, these containers are used for business applications. However, residential clients may also hire them. It is very important think about the area they will occupy, as they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be hired for light-weight waste including paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of soil and hardcore.
