Burntwood Skip Hire FAQs
What size is a builder’s skip?
The phrase builders skip can mean two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yard skip. The term comes from the fact that they are the most typical sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are suited to numerous residential and business tasks. They are the largest skips that can be used for hefty builders waste including top soil, stone and concrete.
Is it okay to load up the skip higher than level load mark?
You should not load a skip beyond the level load mark. If you fill it up over the tip of this level, it means that the skip is not safe to move, and you can be asked to take off the excess waste before it can be picked up.
Will a Burntwood skip hire company deliver my skip?
To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a number of local and national companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Burntwood?
This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is placed on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit when your skip is on private property, such as a drive or on your business premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, so we can make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can place the skip on private land, you will save a few pounds.
Where does my waste be taken to once the skip is collected?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into various waste streams, which includes wood, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
What is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some household waste, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to handle numerous jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most often hired by residential customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.
Do I have to be there when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be at home when we are delivering the skip. Providing we are able to gain access to where you want it delivered, we are able to take care of it all.
If you are not likely to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you place the order. For instance, you may want the skip to be dropped on a particular area of the drive. Or you might need to be sure that the skip does not block use of your garage.
Whatever the situation might be, provide the details when ordering, and then we will ensure the instructions are passed to the lorry driver.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?
Generally, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you require a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip that has a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are hiring a large builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This isn’t so 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.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you manage a business in Burntwood and need to dispose of large quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a perfect option. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips that are available.
As the name indicates, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, in contrast to normal skips, which are lifted by using chains.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Burntwood?
This will depend on the skip size you require and whether you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the least expensive choice. The most expensive and biggest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used primarily in commercial settings.

Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, since electronic products like old televisions, cookers, computers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you have asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your booking prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver, we endeavour to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery area, as failed deliveries can lead to a fee for a wasted trip.
How do you hire a skip?
Ordering a skip in Burntwood through us is very easy. Select the skip size you want and then input a few details about where and when you want your skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
What waste materials can I put in my skip?
You are able to load the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from loft clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include wood, top soil, stone, garden trimmings, furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip depends on which skip size you have hired, because there is a weight restriction. For instance, if you are using the skip for heavy construction waste including bricks or top soil, the biggest size you would be able to get is the 8 cubic yard.
Some materials can not be disposed of in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
Usually, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.
