Brightlingsea Skip Hire FAQs

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Brightlingsea?

Our aim is to provide the cheapest skip hire service in Brightlingsea. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have the skip positioned on the highway or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the added cost of the skip permit.

Am I allowed to throw electrical products in my skip?

No, you can not dispose of old or unwanted electrical waste products in a skip. This includes things like laptops, microwaves, tumble dryers, freezers and televisions. Electric items can’t be disposed of in a 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 reused or recycled.

What skip sizes can you supply?

We offer a whole range of skip sizes to domestic and business clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the enormous 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

Below are the different skip sizes on offer, with a rough idea of the amount of waste each size can hold:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
  • 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
  • 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
  • 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

For more information about our selection of skips, including measurements and the waste they can be used for, check out our guide to skip sizes.

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to transport huge amounts of waste. Generally, these type of skips are used for industrial uses. However, household customers may also order them. It is important to take into account the space they will take up, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be utilised for lightweight waste such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of soil and hardcore.

What types of waste materials can I put in a skip?

This is one of the most common questions people have about our skip hire service. What is important to remember is that you may load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of rubbish that can come from garden work, building work and household clearances.

Among the most common things that we find in skips include garden soil, wood, bush trimmings, cabinets, sinks, and various household items.

However, there are some materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. For example, any electrical objects (fridges and freezers, monitors and printers for example), old tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. They are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them needs to comply with a completely different procedure to make sure they do not cause harm to the environment.

Should I be in when the skip will be delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be there on the day it is delivered. You can then ensure that the skip lorry has total access and that the skip will be situated exactly where you need it. The same is applicable when you have a skip delivered to business premises, especially when gates limit access.

On the other hand, if this is not achievable, you don’t need to be concerned. Just let us know when you are placing your booking, and we will handle the rest.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you complete your booking prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive, we endeavour to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery site, as failed delivery attempts will result in a fee for a wasted trip.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

If you are looking for a low-cost skip to dispose of some household waste, the mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to deal with many jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be placed on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

Although most often hired by residential customers, the mini skip can also tackle small commercial jobs.

What is the process of hiring a skip in Brightlingsea?

We have developed our booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to type in your delivery address to view the range of skip sizes we are able to provide in Brightlingsea. Select the best size to meet your requirements and provide the details of when and where you would like your skip to be delivered. You then make payment with our secure payment platform, and we’ll send an email to confirm the order as soon as your booking is complete!

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. They are the biggest skips that can be used to discard weighty building and construction waste materials such as stone, bricks, gravel or dirt.

A builders skip is ideal for a number of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing out the garage, these substantial containers are usually the most cost-effective choice available.

Will the skip have a drop down door?

Generally, most skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you need a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip that has a drop door is primarily beneficial when hiring a large builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini and midi skips, because they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Brightlingsea?

This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only require a permit if it is put on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip will be on your private property, such as a drive or inside your company premises.

If you do have to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know as part of the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place the skip on your own property, it will save you a few pounds.

Is it ok to fill the skip above the side?

No, you must only fill up the skip up to the level load mark. Loading waste up over this line would make it dangerous to transport, and you could be told to take off the surplus waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.

Do you deliver to other areas in Essex?

In addition to delivering skips to Brightlingsea, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Essex. With the help of a network of regional and national skip hire companies, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering in Brightlingsea, Waltham Abbey or Hockley, we have got you covered.

What happens to the waste when the skip is picked up?

If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste will get sorted into various waste streams, which includes stone, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

You can usually keep your skip for up to two weeks from the date of delivery. You are able to provide a chosen collection day when you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have finished with the skip, and then we will arrange the collection. Normally, this will be the following working day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer during hectic periods.

Will a Brightlingsea skip hire company deliver my skip?

As we provide a national skip hire service, we use a comprehensive network of verified and approved businesses. These range from small local skip hire firms to nationwide waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental expectations.

Other areas covered include Waltham Abbey, Hockley, South Woodham Ferrers, Wickford, Thaxted, Corringham, Harlow and Southend-on-Sea.
