Burnham-on-Sea Skip Hire FAQs
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large industrial size skips used predominantly in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for organisations that generate large volumes of waste materials.
What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in the skip?
You can load your skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from loft clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include wood, soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you throw in the skip depends on which skip size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, if you will be using the skip for heavy construction wastes like rubble or garden soil, the biggest size you could hire is the 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be disposed of in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
A builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These will be the biggest skips that can be hired to get rid of heavy building and demolition waste such as rock, concrete, gravel or clay.
The builders skip is perfect for a number of jobs. If you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing out your garage, these large containers are usually the most cost-effective option available.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into the various waste materials, such as wood, metals, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Will a Burnham-on-Sea skip hire company deliver my skip?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work with a wide range of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to make sure we can offer customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
How long can I hire a skip for?
You can generally hire your skip for up to 2 weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, there is the choice of offering a preferred collection day when you place your order.
Alternatively, simply let us know when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the next working day.
It might take a bit longer to collect your skip during busy periods, however we will always try to be there as quickly as possible.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Burnham-on-Sea?
Ideally, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. For anybody who is carrying out a household job, then your drive is going to be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public property, you need to get a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be dropped on a road, grass verge or any other public property in Burnham-on-Sea. If this is required, we will request the license to be granted for you. An additional cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact skip offered by skip firms and is good for smaller DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies will offer a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
Can I get rid of electrical items in my skip?
No, you can not throw old electrical waste items in a skip. This includes items like laptops or computers, cookers, tumble dryers, fridges and televisions. These products can’t be thrown in the skip as they can contain dangerous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
You don’t have to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered, however it can help. Being in when your skip is due for delivery means you can make sure the driver can be given full access and that your skip is dropped precisely where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is delivered to your business premises, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, in the event you can’t be available at the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you book your order, and we will arrange things from there.
Am I allowed to fill up the skip above the level load mark?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this makes it unsafe to move, and you will then be asked to remove any contents over the level load mark. This also means you can not make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other object, as this will increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty of care to ensure that bins aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure that you select the appropriate size of skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you’re unsure which size you need. We will be happy to help.

Will the skip be supplied with a drop door?
