Broughton Astley Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The term builder’s skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yard skip. The term originates from the fact that they are the most popular sizes that are hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are suited to a wide variety of residential and industrial projects. These are the biggest skip sizes which you can use for weighty builders waste including garden soil, rubble and bricks.
Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when the skip is being delivered, however it will help. Being in when the skip is due to be delivered means that you can ensure the lorry can be given full access and that the skip will be located precisely where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is being hired to business premises, we will appreciate your support during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, if you can’t be around for the delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place the order, and then we will arrange everything from there.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
You can normally keep the skip for up to two weeks from the delivery date. It is possible to provide a preferred pick up day at the time you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can tell us once you have finished, and we will organise your collection. Normally, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer during busy times.
Am I able to dispose of electrical items in the skip?
Unfortunately it is not permitted, since electrical items such as old televisions, cookers, printers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects must be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly fashion.
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Broughton Astley?
In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you would like your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or home, you will have to secure authorisation from the local authority in Broughton Astley, which is referred to as a skip permit. If required, we would be glad to arrange this for you, and so it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for your permit, and you should know before ordering that getting the licence can often take up to two working days.
What is the cost of skip hire in Broughton Astley?
To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Broughton Astley, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you the sizes we offer in your town and how much each one will cost you to order. If your skip is going on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.
Is it ok to fill up my skip above the level load mark?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it dangerous to move, and you will be asked to remove any rubbish over the level load line. This also means that you are not allowed to make use of sheets of timber, doors or another item, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal responsibility to ensure that bins aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure that you choose the correct sized skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you’re not sure which size you require. We will be pleased to help.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into different waste streams, including timber, metals, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How long will it take to get a skip in Broughton Astley?
When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. Sometimes, we will even give you a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed as part of the online order process.

How many different skip sizes are available?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Broughton Astley, you have numerous sizes to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is excellent for small household clearances and DIY work.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also means they are suitable for household clearances involving bulky objects like furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people with even larger waste disposal requirements. These sizes are only appropriate for lightweight waste materials, so they cannot be hired to dispose of garden soil or concrete.
To get more information about the different sizes available, such as measurements, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
What is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household waste, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to take on numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be located on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most frequently hired by household customers, the mini skip can also handle small commercial jobs.
Will you deliver to other areas in Leicestershire?
In addition to delivering our range of skips to Broughton Astley, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Leicestershire. Through a network of regional and national waste management companies, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering in Broughton Astley, Melton Mowbray or Hinckley, we have got it covered.
Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?
Virtually all containers can be supplied with a drop door, making them easy to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, such as garden soil and gravel, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you manage a business in Broughton Astley and need to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a great choice. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips on the market.
As the name suggests, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, as opposed to normal skips, which are picked up by using chains.
What things can I put in my skip?
It is possible to fill the skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly generated from garage clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include wood, dirt, stone, garden trimmings, furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you throw in the skip will depend on which skip size you have ordered, because there is a weight limit. For instance, if you will be using the skip for heavy building waste including stone or garden soil, the biggest size you would be able to hire is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be discarded in your skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
Who will deliver my skip?
Since we offer a national skip service, we use a comprehensive network of verified businesses. These include small local skip hire firms to national waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they match our high customer service and environmental principles.
Other areas covered include Melton Mowbray, Hinckley, Shepshed, Syston, Ibstock, Market Harborough, Loughborough and Coalville.
