Bridgwater Skip Hire FAQs
Where will the waste 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 rubbish will be separated into the various waste streams, like timber, metals, paper, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

We will instantly display which sizes we provide in your town and how much each one will cost to order. If the skip will be on the highway or other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
When you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is ideal for disposing of heavy building and demolition rubbish, as it can be pushed into the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop-down door, however these are generally less common. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our very best to ensure a skip which has a drop door is delivered.
When will my skip be delivered?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We can usually offer you a next day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, because to be on public property (such as a street), you must obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.
Due to numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it turning up in a AM or PM slot.
What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial commercial scale skips used predominantly within the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for businesses that produce significant quantities of waste materials.
Will a skip hire company from Bridgwater deliver my skip?
A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Bridgwater. We work with a network of both local and national providers to allow us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These firms are vetted to guarantee they match the high expectations we require regarding customer service, price and environmental performance.
If I want a skip on a road in Bridgwater, will I need a permit?
In most situations, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you would like the skip to be situated on land outside of your company or home, you will have to secure authorisation from the local council in Bridgwater, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we will be happy to arrange this for you, therefore it’s one less issue to worry about. The council does charge a fee for your permit, plus you should be aware before ordering that getting the permit will often take up to two working days.
What skip sizes do you provide?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Bridgwater, you have multiple sizes to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for small house clearances and DIY work.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also makes them great for household tidy ups involving bulky items such as household furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people and businesses with even larger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only appropriate for lightweight materials, so they can not be used to get rid of soil or stone.
For further information about the different skip sizes offered, such as proportions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
You can usually keep a skip for as many as 14 days from the date of delivery. It is possible to provide a preferred collection date when you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can tell us once you have finished with the skip, and we will plan your collection. Generally, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take a little longer during busy periods.

By utilising a network of regional and national skip hire businesses, we offer a totally nationwide service.

What size is a builder’s skip?
A builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. They are the largest containers that can be used to get rid of substantial construction waste such as rock, concrete, rubble or dirt.
The builder’s skip is ideal for a wide array of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning out the loft space, these large containers are often the most affordable choice available.
Am I able to put electronic items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products need to be kept separate from general waste to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electrical products including cookers, TVs, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.
What size is a mini skip?
When you have a small amount of waste to throw out, a mini skip may be the perfect choice. What size is referred to as a mini skip is different from company to company, based on what sizes they have.
The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 yard container as their smallest option. Price is dependent on the actual size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for household tasks including modest DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
Can I load my skip higher than level load line?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it dangerous to move, and you may have to remove any materials higher than the level load mark. This also means you cannot use sheets of timber, doors or another object, since this will increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty to make sure that containers aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure that you order the appropriate sized skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you are not sure which size you require. We would be pleased to help.
How can I hire a skip in Bridgwater?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you would like to hire. Tell us if the skip is going to be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or local authority property (like the road). Then, pick the date you want the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Bridgwater on the day you have chosen.
Do I need to be there when the skip is going to be delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be there when anyone delivers anything to your house. You can then make sure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned just where you need it.
The same thing applies if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, if it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
What can I put in the skip?
You are able to throw a variety of waste into your skip. This can include wood, tile, plastics or rubble from a household clearance. Tree and bush clippings, soil and rock from garden tasks are permitted also. Units from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in the skip.
However, there are some things that you can’t put in a skip a result of the potential ecological or health risk they may cause.
You cannot get rid of your refrigerator, printer or old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things incorporate hazardous components in one type or another. They should be disposed of separately from your normal waste.
If you require hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to schedule an independent collection for this material. Feel free to email for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
