Buntingford Skip Hire FAQs

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

Prior to hiring a skip, it is important to check that the kind of waste materials you want to dispose of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

A few examples of waste types you could throw in your skip include household items like furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use your skip to discard building and construction rubbish, such as wood, soil, stone, metals and concrete.

Some examples of prohibited items include electronic products, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be disposed of separately from any general rubbish.

Am I allowed to load up my skip higher than level load line?

It is important not to overfill a skip. You must not pass the level load line indicated along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it becomes very unsafe to transport. Which means that when you overfill the skip, you could be asked to take off the excess waste. Regardless of how safe you think the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This is dangerous and is not allowed.

How long does it take to get a skip in Buntingford?

We will ensure your skip is provided when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.

Although we cannot promise a precise delivery time, we will do our very best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

It is important to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will usually incur a fee for the wasted journey.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

You can usually keep a skip for as long as 14 days from the delivery date. You can give a preferred collection day at the time you place your order. Alternatively, you can let us know after you have loaded the skip, and then we will prepare the collection. In most cases, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a little longer during busy periods.

Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be in on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure that the lorry has complete access and that the skip can be placed precisely where you want it. The same is applicable if you have a skip delivered to company property, particularly when gates restrict access.

On the other hand, when this isn’t possible, you do not have to stress. Simply tell us when you are placing your order, and we will take care of everything.

Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Buntingford?

This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a skip permit when it is put on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit when your skip is on private property, such as a drive or on your business premises.

If you have to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, and we can make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate your skip on your own property, it will save you some pounds.

What is the cost of skip hire in Buntingford?

Our goal is to give you the cheapest skip hire service in Buntingford. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have the skip positioned on the street or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the added price of a skip permit.

What is a builders skip?

The builder’s skip is the most common skip ordered across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is fantastic for most building work, which is where the label comes from.

The 8 yard builders skip will be the largest option which you can use for hefty waste materials such as garden soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.

Since we offer a UK-wide skip service, we use an extensive network of approved businesses. These can range from small family-run skip hire businesses to national waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental expectations.

Can I throw electronic items in the skip?

No, you can not dispose of old electrical waste items in your skip. This includes things like laptops or computers, cookers, dishwashers, freezers and television sets. These products can’t be disposed of in the skip as they can include hazardous materials and components.

Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.

What size skips do you offer?

Skips are available in a selection of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is great for small household projects.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is an excellent choice for attic clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial waste disposal job to sort out, a builder’s skip may be the smartest choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label implies, these are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, such as clay and stone. However they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen units.

We can also deliver 10-16 yard containers and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

How much waste will the mini skip hold?

The mini skip will be the smallest size available from skip companies and is great for small DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms will offer a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets sorted into various waste types, which includes timber, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!

What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial industrial scale skips used mainly in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for organisations that generate significant amounts of waste.

Is it possible to have a skip with a drop door?

The vast majority of skips can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the bin, especially with weighty materials, such as dirt and gravel, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, like furniture.
