Bruton Skip Hire FAQs
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
You can generally hire your skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the collection will be as convenient as possible, you have the option of offering a preferred collection date when placing your order.
Otherwise, just tell us when you have finished loading up your skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It can take a little bit longer to pick up your skip during busy times, however we will always try to be there as quickly as possible.
What will happen to the rubbish?
The rubbish in your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer centre. Here the rubbish will be sorted by machines and by hand into various waste materials, like soil, cardboard, stone and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.
Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be in on the day it is delivered. You can then be sure the lorry has complete access and that the skip is placed precisely where you need it. The same applies for those who have a skip delivered to business property, particularly if gates restrict access.
However, if that is not achievable, you do not have to stress. Just tell us when you are making your booking, and then we will take care of everything.
If I require a skip on the road in Bruton, will I need to have a permit?
Preferably, you should have the skip left on a hard surface. When you are doing a household job, then the driveway will be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, if neither is available, the road or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public land, you must have a permit from your local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be positioned on a road, grass verge or other public property in Bruton. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be issued on your behalf. An extra fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
How large is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact skip provided by skip firms and is perfect for small DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies will offer a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
Am I able to throw all kinds of rubbish in the skip?
Before getting a skip, you must check that the kind of waste you need to dispose of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials need to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types you can throw in your skip include home items like furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use your skip to discard building and construction rubbish, including timber, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Examples of prohibited items include things like electrical items, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be discarded separately from general rubbish.
Which skip sizes will have a drop door?
Generally speaking, almost all skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you want a drop down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip with a drop door is mainly helpful when hiring a big builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow waste directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini skips, because they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Can I get rid of electronic products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods must be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This includes all electrical products like tumble dryers, TVs, toasters, tablets and even hairdryers.
What size skips can you provide?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Bruton, you will have multiple options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for small house clearances and DIY jobs.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most popular sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also makes them ideal for house tidy ups including bulky items like household furniture and beds.
We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for anyone with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only suited to lightweight waste materials, so they can not be used to dispose of soil or concrete.
For additional details about the various capacities available, including proportions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are substantial industrial scale skips that are used predominantly within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for organisations that generate large quantities of waste materials.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Bruton?
Our aim is to give you the lowest priced skip hire service in Bruton. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip you hire. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have your skip positioned on the highway or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the added expense of the skip permit.

We provide a UK wide skip hire service through a network of approved and fully licensed local companies. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Bruton, Frome, Wiveliscombe, Weston-Super-Mare or another location in Somerset, we are able to help.
What size is a builders skip?
The phrase builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yard skip. The label stems from the fact that these are the most popular sizes that are hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are ideal for a wide variety of household and industrial tasks. They are the biggest sizes which you can use for heavy builders waste such as garden soil, rubble and concrete.
How long does it take to get a skip in Bruton?
We will make sure your skip is provided when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we are not able to promise an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You have to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will in most cases incur a fee for the wasted trip.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Bruton?
We utilise a network of both regional and national skip hire firms to deliver skips to our clients in Bruton and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner skip companies are verified and evaluated to guarantee they meet our standards for cost, service, recycling and reliability.
Can I load up the skip above level load mark?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it unsafe to transport, and you may be asked to remove any items higher than the level load mark. This means that you cannot use sheets of timber, doors or another item, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty to ensure that bins are not overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure you hire the correct size of skip for your needs and get in touch if you’re uncertain which size you need. We would be happy to help.
