What is a builders skip?

The builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These will be the biggest containers used to get rid of substantial construction materials such as stone, concrete, rubble or soil.

A builders skip is ideal for a wide array of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning out your garden shed, these big skips are usually the most affordable choice available.

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

It is always a good idea to be in when anybody delivers anything to your house. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be placed just where you need it.

The same applies for those who have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.

Do you deliver to other areas in Suffolk?

Along with delivering skips to Bury St Edmunds, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Suffolk. Through a network of local and national waste management and recycling companies, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering in Bury St Edmunds, Mildenhall or Newmarket, we have got it covered.

How long can I keep the skip for?

You can normally keep your skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, you have the option of offering a preferred collection time when you place your order.

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

It can take a bit longer to collect your skip over busy periods, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Bury St Edmunds?

Normally, it is possible to have the skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to get this done, you will need to get permission from the local council in Bury St Edmunds, which is called a skip permit. We can organise this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The council will impose a fee for this license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to approve this.

When will my skip be delivered?

We can normally deliver skips to Bury St Edmunds the following working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our online booking program offers you a number of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you would like your skip to arrive ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.

What sort of waste can you get rid of in a skip?

Before getting your skip, it is important to make sure that the sort of waste you wish to dispose of is 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.

A few examples of waste types you may throw in your skip include home items like furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You can also use your skip to dispose of building and demolition waste, like bricks, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.

Examples of forbidden items include electronic products, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and therefore need to be disposed of separately from general rubbish.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are big industrial scale skips used mainly within the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for companies that produce significant amounts of waste.

How can I hire a skip online?

Ordering a skip should not be hard. This is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter your delivery postcode to view all the different skips we are able to deliver to Bury St Edmunds.

Once your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with all of your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

Where do you take the waste from my skip?

After you have finished with your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility either in or local to Bury St Edmunds where we will sort the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

What are the different skip sizes available?

Our company offers a complete selection of skip sizes to residential and business clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the enormous 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

Here are the different sizes to choose from, with a rough idea of the amount of waste each size is capable of holding:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
  • 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
  • 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
  • 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

For further information about our selection of skips, including measurements plus the waste they can be used for, check out our guide to skip sizes.

Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?

Unfortunately this is not allowed, since electronic products such as old TVs, fridge freezers, pcs and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items must be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly way.

Can I load my skip above the level load mark?

Unfortunately not. You are only allowed to load the skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste up above this line would make it dangerous to move, and you can be told to take off the surplus waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and can also make it overweight.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to tackle many jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be located on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.

Although most often hired by household customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.

Is it possible to get a skip with a drop down door?

Having a skip with a drop down door makes loading waste into it much easier. This is particularly true with hefty materials like soil or hardcore, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of large bulky objects such as pieces of furniture easier too.

Most skips can be supplied with a drop door, although this will sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when placing your booking if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.

Who will deliver my skip?

As we provide a UK-wide skip service, we utilise an extensive network of approved businesses. These include small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental expectations.

Other areas covered include Mildenhall, Newmarket, Southwold, Brandon, Saxmundham, Sudbury, Beccles and Leiston.
