Burton upon Trent Skip Hire FAQs
Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Burton upon Trent?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you want your skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or residence, you must get authorisation from the local council in Burton upon Trent, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we would be happy to organise this on your behalf, and so it’s one less point to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for the skip license, and you should know before ordering that obtaining the permit can often take up to 2 working days.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most frequently used for building and demolition jobs. There are usually two sizes which can be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to dispose of significant volumes of construction and demolition waste materials, such as earth, rubble and rock.
Although they are branded a builder’s skip, these can be used for a number of other household and business waste disposal jobs.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
We supply a full-range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip great for modest DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A common option for bigger projects, renovations and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Burton upon Trent firms with a big amount of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How can I order a skip in Burton upon Trent?
Hiring a skip in Burton upon Trent through us is incredibly easy. Pick the skip size you want and input a couple of details about when and where you want the skip delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and schedule to get your skip delivered on the date selected.
Am I allowed to dispose of all types of rubbish in the skip?
Prior to ordering your skip, it is essential to check that the type of waste you wish to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you are able to throw in your skip include household goods like furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You can also use a skip to dispose of building and construction rubbish, like bricks, dirt, rubble, metals and concrete.
Some examples of prohibited items include electrical goods, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately from your general waste.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
You can generally keep the skip for up to 2 weeks from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of giving a preferred collection day when making your order.
Alternatively, just let us know when you have finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It might take a bit longer to collect your skip over busy times, but we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are perfect for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and broken toys to paving blocks and rubble. With a volume of approximately 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make multiple trips to the local recycling centre.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Burton upon Trent?
Since we offer a nationwide waste management service, we use a diverse network of verified businesses. These vary from small family-run skip hire businesses to national waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental standards.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Burton upon Trent?
This depends upon the size you want and whether you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the cheapest choice. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings.

Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be at home when we deliver the skip. Provided that we can gain access to where you need it delivered, we can manage it all.
In the event you will not be in, simply provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you book your order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be located at a particular area of the drive. Alternatively, you might need to ensure that the skip does not prevent entry to your garage.
Whatever the situation might be, provide the details when ordering, and then we will ensure the directions will be passed to the delivery driver.
Will the skip come with a drop door?
Typically, the majority of skips can be provided with a hinged door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip that has a drop door is primarily helpful when choosing a large builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Will you deliver to other areas in Staffordshire?
Certainly, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply skips to locations throughout Staffordshire, including Burton upon Trent, Eccleshall, Cannock and Biddulph. So wherever you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
Can I load up the skip above level load line?
It is important to not overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being told to take out excess waste prior to it being picked up. No matter what size you hire, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, since transporting an overloaded skip is unsafe, as objects could fall and result in injuries or damage to other people.
To prevent this issue, please ensure you hire a size appropriate for your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full but you have additional rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container that can be used to get rid of huge volumes of waste. Predominantly, these skips are used for business uses. However, domestic clients can also use them. It is very important take into account the area they will take up, as they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be utilised for light materials including plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of soil and concrete.
Can I put electronic products in the skip?
Electrical products like television sets, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore cannot be placed in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric products need to be segregated from other materials. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we endeavour to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery site, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will result in a fee for the wasted trip.
What will happen to the rubbish?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get separated into several different waste streams, such as timber, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!
