Buckfastleigh Skip Hire FAQs

Do all skips have a drop down door?

For anyone who is choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is great for getting rid of hefty building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop down door, although they are more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our very best to make sure a container with a drop door is delivered.

If I want a skip on the road in Buckfastleigh, will I need a permit?

Generally, it is possible to have a skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to get this done, you will need to have permission from your local council in Buckfastleigh, which is known as a skip permit. We will organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council do impose a fee for your permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

What is a mini skip?

For those who have a small quantity of waste to throw out, the mini skip might be the ideal choice. What size is described as a mini skip varies from company to company, depending on what sizes they provide.

2 cubic yards is considered the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. Price is dependent on the particular size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are great for household jobs including modest DIY projects and garden clean ups. If you want it put on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

Am I allowed to fill the skip higher than the side?

You should not fill a skip past the level load line. When you fill it over the tip of this mark, it means that your skip will not be safe and secure to transport, and you might be asked to remove the excess waste before it can be picked up.

It is possible to fill the skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly produced from garage clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, soil, rubble, hedge trimmings, household furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.

What you put in your skip would depend on the skip size you have ordered, because there is a weight limit. For example, in the event that you will be using a skip for heavy construction waste including stone or garden soil, the biggest size you can use is the 8 cubic yard.

Some materials should not be discarded in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
