What is a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most commonly hired for construction jobs. There are generally two different skip sizes which can be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to get rid of significant quantities of building and demolition waste materials, like earth, rubble and rock.
Although labelled a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for multiple other residential and business waste disposal jobs.
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into a number of waste types, such as timber, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the collection is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
Unfortunately it is not permitted, because electronic products like old TVs, freezers, computers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly way.
How many different skip sizes are there?
Our company offers a full variety of skip sizes to residential and industrial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the various skip sizes available, with a rough guide to the amount of rubbish each skip can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags

What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Brownhills?
Ordering a skip in Brownhills with us is very straightforward. Choose the skip size you want and then enter a handful of details about where and when you want your skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then schedule to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
Will the skip come with a drop door?
For anybody who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is ideal for disposing of hefty building and construction rubbish, as it can be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop door, though they are more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are generally small enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our very best to ensure a skip that has a drop door is delivered.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
Generally, you can have a skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you don’t have to rush through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.
Will you deliver to other areas in West Midlands?
Sure, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer skips to locations across West Midlands, such as Brownhills, Coventry, Stourbridge and Tipton. So no matter where you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
What can I put in my skip?
You are able to put a variety of waste into the skip. This can include wood, ceramic tiles, plastics or rubble from a household clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden jobs are allowed as well. Cupboards and worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also go in your skip.
There are, however, some items that can’t be put in a skip a result of the possible environmental or health risks they might cause.
You can not throw out your fridge, computer monitor or old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items consist of hazardous components in one kind or another. They need to be discarded separately from general rubbish.
Should you require hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to organise a separate service for this waste. Please get in touch for further details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Brownhills?
In most cases, it is possible to have your skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to do this, you must have approval from your local authority in Brownhills, which is known as a skip permit. We will order this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council do impose a fee for this license, and it can sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you run a company in Brownhills and wish to get rid of large amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container might be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips that you can hire.
As the name indicates, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, which are picked up by using chains.
Is it ok to load the skip higher than the top?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it hazardous to transport, and you will then have to remove any contents above the level load mark. This 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 obligation to ensure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure that you select the correct sized skip to meet your requirements and get in touch if you’re uncertain which size you need. We would be pleased to help.
Do I need to be home when the skip is delivered?
You don’t really need to be at home when your skip is going to be delivered, however it will help. Being home whenever the skip arrives means that you can make sure the lorry driver is given complete access and that your skip will be located precisely where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is delivered to a business property, we will appreciate your support during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Even so, if you can’t be available for the delivery, don’t worry. We just ask that you let us know when you place your order, and we will arrange things from there.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Brownhills?
The price of hiring a skip in Brownhills will depend on the size of skip you need. The least expensive option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and clearances. If you require a bigger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also be more if you want to have the skip placed on the road, as you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
What size is a mini skip?
For those who have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, the mini skip could be the best solution. What size is described as a mini skip varies from business to business, determined by what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is probably the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to have a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. The cost depends on the specific size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for residential jobs including small DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
