Bromyard Skip Hire FAQs

What size is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to deal with many jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be situated on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.

Although most often chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?

A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a massive skip used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are mainly for commercial use but can be used by domestic customers as well. Having said that, you need plenty of space as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger when compared to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off skips should only be hired for light materials such as plastics, wood and paper, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and rubble.

What kinds of rubbish am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?

You are allowed to put a wide array of waste types in the skip. This includes timber, floor tiles, metal or rubble from a property clearance. Plant and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden work is allowed as well. Worktops and units from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be discarded in your skip.

There are, however, things that you can’t put in a skip because of the potential ecological or health risk they could trigger.

You cannot throw out your refrigerator, laptop or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items contain hazardous materials in one type or another. They need to be disposed of separately from your general waste.

If you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to organise an independent collection for this waste. Please get in touch for more details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

Is it okay to load the skip higher than the top?

It is vital not to overfill the skip. You can not pass the level load mark shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it is very unsafe to transport. Which means that if you overload the skip, you could be required to take away the excess waste. Regardless of how secure you believe the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This is hazardous and is therefore not allowed.

Will you deliver to other areas in Herefordshire?

We offer a national skip hire service using a network of verified and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Bromyard, Hereford, Ross-on-Wye, Leominster or any other location in Herefordshire, we can assist.

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

This will depend on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a skip permit when it is placed on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if your skip is on private property, such as a driveway or on your business premises.

If you need to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us during the order process, and then we can make the required arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place your skip on your own land, it will save you some money.

How long does it take to get a skip in Bromyard?

We can usually deliver skips to Bromyard the following working day when an order is made before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking program will give you a range of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you need your skip to arrive ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.

Am I able to throw away electronic items in the skip?

Electrical items such as tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore cannot be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical items have to be segregated from other waste. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly way.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?

The rubbish in your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer facility. Here the waste will be sorted by machinery and by hand into different waste streams, such as soil, plastics, rubble and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

Will a Bromyard skip hire company deliver my skip?

We use a large network of both local and national skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our clients in Bromyard and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner skip companies are approved and evaluated to ensure they meet our expectations for price, service, recycling and reliability.

Select the right size to meet your requirements and provide the details of when and where you need your skip to be delivered.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is probably the most frequent skip which is hired across the country. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is perfect for most building and construction projects, which is where the label comes from.

The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip will be the biggest option that can be used for hefty waste matter such as dirt, concrete, stone and gravel.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

Usually, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t need to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.

Do all skips have a drop door?

Generally, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, depending on size, availability and location. If you need a drop down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful when choosing a large builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials directly into the skip. This isn’t so important for midi and mini skips, because they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What is the cost of skip hire in Bromyard?

The cost of getting a skip in Bromyard depends on the size of skip you want. The cheapest option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you want a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you want to have the skip placed on the road, since you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

What skip sizes do you provide?

We provide a complete selection of skip sizes to household and business clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

Listed below are the different skip sizes offered, with a rough guide to the amount of rubbish each size can hold:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags

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

When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be there when it is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has complete access and that the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it. This also applies if you have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly if gates limit access.

However, when this isn’t achievable, you don’t have to stress. Simply let us know when placing your order, and we will handle everything.

Other areas covered include Hereford, Ross-on-Wye, Leominster, Ledbury and Kington.
