Bromsgrove Skip Hire FAQs

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

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container that can be used to dispose of significant volumes of waste. Primarily, these type of skips are hired for business applications. However, household customers may also hire them. It is essential to think about the space they will take up, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be used for light waste such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of soil and hardcore.

What is the process of hiring a skip in Bromsgrove?

We have developed our booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first task is to type in your delivery address to see all the different skip sizes we are able to deliver in Bromsgrove. Select the best size to meet your needs and provide us with the details of when and where you need the skip to be delivered. You can then make payment with our secure payment platform, and we will send you an email to confirm the transaction as soon as your booking is done!

How fast can you deliver a skip in Bromsgrove?

We will ensure your skip will be provided when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.

Although we are not able to promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You have to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will often incur a charge for the wasted trip.

Is it okay to stack up waste in my skip?

You should not fill your skip beyond the level load line. When you fill it up above the tip of this mark, it means your skip will not be safe and secure to transport, and you could be asked to remove the excess rubbish before it can be collected.

What size skips can you deliver?

Skips come in a wide range of sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is great for small household tasks.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold around 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yd is a great choice for attic clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial waste disposal task to tackle, the builder’s skip might be the best choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title indicates, they are the most common sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, including clay and rubble. However they can equally well be used for household waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also offer 10-16 yard containers and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For more details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What size is a builder’s skip?

The phrase builders skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. The name comes from the fact that they are the most typical sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.

These substantial containers are fantastic for numerous residential and commercial jobs. They are the biggest sizes which you can use for weighty builders waste like soil, stone and gravel.

How much waste will fit in a mini skip?

If you have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, the mini skip might be the best option. What size is called a mini skip is different from company to company, based on what sizes they supply.

2 cubic yards is considered the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. The cost depends on the particular size you order, instead of the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are fantastic for residential jobs including modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

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

Your skip can be used to dispose of many different types of waste materials. We are used to collecting and processing numerous items produced from building jobs, garden landscaping and property clearances. Some examples of permitted waste products include:

  • Household furniture
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Garden soil
  • Bricks and rubble
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Cabinets and units

Most waste materials are generally accepted, therefore whether you wish to dispose of furniture, plastic materials, timber or clothing, we can usually take your waste away.

The volume and items you throw into your skip will vary depending on the size skip you have ordered. All skips have a weight limit for safety purposes. So if you need to discard soil and bricks, as an example, the largest size you will be able to use would be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

What sort of materials am I not allowed to put in the skip?

There are several items that you will not be able to dump in the skip. The reason for this is that these products include hazardous components that may harm the environment. They may also be hazardous to human health, therefore they need to be discarded separately within UK legislation.

Examples of the items that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into various waste streams, such as timber, metals, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Can I dispose of electronic items in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products must be kept separate from general waste to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric goods including washing machines, TVs, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.

How long can I hire the skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, that provides you with plenty of time to load the skip. However, if you need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, in the event you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just tell us once you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has total access and that the skip will be positioned exactly where you need it. This also is true if you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly when gates limit access.

However, when this is not achievable, you do not have to stress. Simply tell us when placing your order, and we will take care of the rest.

Can you deliver skips across Worcestershire?

Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Bromsgrove?

If at all possible, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface. If you are carrying out a residential project, then a driveway is going to be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. Having said that, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public property, you will have to obtain a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be dropped on a road, grass verge as well as other public property in Bromsgrove. If this is required, we will request the license to be granted for you. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Bromsgrove?

Our goal is to provide the cheapest skip hire service in Bromsgrove. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip that you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you want to have your skip placed on the street or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the added cost of a skip permit.

Am I able to have a skip which has a drop door?

Nearly all containers can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.

A skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, like soil and rubble, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, such as furniture.

Other areas covered include Tenbury Wells, Great Malvern, Pershore, Stourport-on-Severn, Broadway, Bewdley, Evesham and Worcester.
