Brixham Skip Hire FAQs

What skip sizes do you provide?

Skips are offered in a wide range of different sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small domestic tasks.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great option for loft clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant waste disposal task to undertake, a builder’s skip may be the most suitable choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label suggests, these are the most frequent sizes used by builders for construction waste, such as clay and hardcore. However they can just as well be used for household waste such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also offer 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Can I have a skip with a drop door?

Nearly all containers can be provided with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the skip, particularly with weighty materials, like soil and bricks, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load large and bulky objects, like furniture.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to get rid of large amounts of waste. Generally, these skips are used for industrial applications. However, residential customers may also hire them. You will need to take into account the space they take up, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they should only be hired for lightweight waste like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and rubble.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

The standard hire period is two weeks from your delivery date. However, when you book your skip, you can provide a collection date that is best for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is fully loaded sooner than anticipated, tell us, and we will pick it up as quickly as possible.

We will usually make collections within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to understand that this is not always the case during busy times. Once collected, your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Can I throw all sorts of rubbish in a skip?

Before hiring your skip, you must check that the kind of waste you want to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need 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.

A few examples of waste types you may discard in a skip include home items like pieces of furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use a skip to discard building and demolition rubbish, such as timber, soil, rubble, metals and concrete.

Some examples of prohibited items include things like electrical goods, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be disposed of separately from your general waste.

What is a builder’s skip?

The term builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. The label originates from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes that are ordered by builders and tradespeople.

These substantial skips are ideal for numerous types of residential and industrial tasks. They are the largest skips that can be used for hefty builders waste such as dirt, stone and gravel.

Is it okay to fill up the skip above the level load mark?

It is important to not overfill your skip, as you risk being required to take out excess waste prior to it being collected. Whatever size you hire, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since transporting an overloaded container will be hazardous, as objects could drop and result in personal injury or damage to others.

To prevent this problem, please be sure to order a skip size appropriate for your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full but you have more rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.

What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into various waste streams, like wood, metals, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How do you order a skip online?

Hiring a skip shouldn’t be difficult. This is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, enter your postcode to look at the range of skip sizes we can deliver to Brixham. Select the size you wish to order, and confirm whether it is going to be dropped on private property. Enter in your information and make payment using our secure online payment platform.

When your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Brixham?

Preferably, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface area. When you are doing a domestic project, then the drive will be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. On the other hand, if neither is available, the street or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public property, you need to obtain a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be dropped on a street, grass verge or any other public property in Brixham. If this is needed, we will request the license to be granted on your behalf. An additional charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.

Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects need to be kept separate from general waste materials to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric powered products including washing machines, TVs, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We can normally deliver skips to Brixham the next working day when an order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking program will provide you with a number of delivery dates to select from. So whether you need a skip delivered asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest skip delivered by skip firms and is ideal for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some companies offer you a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?

No, you do not need to be at home when we deliver your skip. Provided that we are able to gain access to the place you want it delivered, we will manage it all.

When you are not going to be in, simply provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when booking your order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be positioned on a particular side of the drive. Alternatively, you might need to ensure that the skip doesn’t prevent use of your garage.

No matter what the case might be, provide the information when you place your order, and we will make sure the instructions will be passed to the lorry driver.
