Should I be in when the skip will be delivered?

You don’t have to be home when your skip is being delivered, however it does help. Being there whenever the skip is due for delivery means that you can make sure the lorry is given complete access and that your skip is dropped precisely where you need it. Likewise, if your skip is being hired to your business property, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

Even so, when you can’t be available for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask that you tell us when you place your order, and we will organise everything from there.

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are large commercial size skips used mainly in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for organisations that produce large volumes of waste.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Budleigh Salterton?

The price of getting a skip in Budleigh Salterton depends on the size of skip you need. The least expensive skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you want a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also increase if you want to have a skip placed on the road, as you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Is it ok to load up the skip above level load mark?

Please don’t overfill your skip as this makes it unsafe to move, and you will then have to empty any rubbish above the level load mark. This means that you cannot make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other item, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to ensure that containers aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure that you hire the correct sized skip to meet your needs and get in touch if you are uncertain which size is best. We would be happy to help.

How long can I keep the skip for?

You can usually hire your skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the collection will be as convenient as possible, there is the choice of providing a preferred collection date when you make your order.

Alternatively, just let us know when you have finished with your skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the next working day.

It could take a bit longer to pick up your skip during busy times, but we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.

Will a skip hire company from Budleigh Salterton deliver my skip?

We work with a network of both local and nationwide businesses to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These firms are thoroughly assessed to ensure they meet the high principles we require with regards to customer service, price and environmental performance.

Where does my waste be taken to once the skip is collected?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into the various waste streams, like timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we can even give you a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed as part of the online order process.

How much waste will the mini skip hold?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, the mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to handle many tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be situated on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

Although most frequently hired by residential customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.

Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Budleigh Salterton?

If possible, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface area. For anybody who is doing a residential project, then the drive will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public property, you will need to have a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be placed on the street, grass verge as well as other public property in Budleigh Salterton. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be issued for you. An additional charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your skip.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the biggest skips that can be hired to get rid of weighty building and construction waste materials such as stone, bricks, gravel or clay.

The builders skip is ideal for a number of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing out your attic, these large skips will often be the most cost-effective option available.

Which size skips can have a door?

In general, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop down door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip that has a drop door is primarily useful when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, as it enables you to wheelbarrow waste directly into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, as they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Can I dispose of electrical items in the skip?

Unfortunately this is not allowed, since electrical products including old televisions, refrigerators, computers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly manner.

Am I able to dispose of all kinds of waste in a skip?

A skip can be used to get rid of lots of different types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and processing numerous materials generated from building jobs, garden projects and household clean-ups. Some examples of allowed waste materials include:

  • Household furniture
  • Garden trimmings
  • Top soil
  • Bricks and rubble
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

The majority of waste materials are allowed, therefore whether you wish to discard furniture, plastics, wood or unwanted toys, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The volume and items you throw into your skip can vary depending on the size skip you ordered. All skips do have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you want to get rid of top soil and hardcore, for example, the biggest size container you will be able to use is the 8 cubic yard skip.

Are there items which I can’t put in the skip?

There are a few waste items you are not allowed to throw out in the skip. The reason behind this is that these products contain hazardous elements which can cause harm to the environment. They may also be harmful to human health, so they must be discarded separately within UK legislation.

A few examples of the items which are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard
