Caister-on-Sea Skip Hire FAQs
How long can I keep the skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. In most cases, this will provide you with sufficient time to fill up the skip. However, if you need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, should you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just contact us when you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.
Will you deliver to other areas in Norfolk?
We offer a nationwide skip hire service using a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you need skip hire in Caister-on-Sea, Downham Market, Gorleston-on-Sea, Wymondham or any other area in Norfolk, we can help.
Is it ok to load the skip above level load mark?
I’m afraid not. You can only load the skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste up above this line will make it unsafe to transport, and you could be told to get rid of the surplus waste before your skip can be removed. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.
If I need a skip on a road in Caister-on-Sea, will I need to have a permit?
If at all possible, you should have the skip left on to a hard surface area. For anybody who is carrying out a household project, then a driveway is going to be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. On the other hand, when neither is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you have got to obtain a permit from your local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be located on a road, grass verge or any other public property in Caister-on-Sea. If this is needed, we will request the license to be issued on your behalf. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
Will a Caister-on-Sea skip hire company deliver my skip?
Since we offer a national waste management service, we use an extensive network of approved companies. These vary from small local skip hire businesses to national waste management service providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental requirements.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
No, you can not put old or broken electrical waste products in a skip. This includes items like computers, hobs, washing machines, fridges and tv sets. Electronic objects can’t be disposed of in the skip as they can have dangerous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
Your skip can be hired to dispose of lots of different types of waste materials. We are used to picking up and processing a wide variety of materials produced from building work, garden projects and property clean-ups. Examples of allowed waste products can include:
- Home furniture
- Hedge cuttings
- Top soil
- Stone and concrete
- Bathroom toilets and sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Most materials are allowed, therefore whether you wish to get rid of furniture, plastic materials, timber or textiles, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The volume and things you throw into your skip will vary according to the size skip you ordered. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you need to get rid of soil and rubble, for example, the biggest size you would be able to hire will be the 8 yard skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?
There are a few materials you are not permitted to dispose of in the skip. The reason behind this is that these items incorporate hazardous materials that may be damaging to the environment. They could also be hazardous to human health, and so they must be disposed of separately under UK regulations.
A few of the goods that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- PC screens
- Car tyres
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Caister-on-Sea, you have various options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for modest home clearances and DIY work.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also means they are suitable for house clear ups including large items such as household furniture and beds.
We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for anyone with even larger waste disposal needs. These containers are only appropriate for light materials, so they can not be hired to dispose of soil or stone.
For additional information regarding the various skip sizes offered, such as proportions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Caister-on-Sea?
Our goal is to offer the cheapest skip hire service in Caister-on-Sea. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip you hire. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have your skip placed on the street or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the added price of the skip permit.
How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are perfect for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furnishings and broken toys to paving blocks and bricks. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make multiple visits to the local recycling centre.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you operate a business in Caister-on-Sea and wish to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips that are available.
As the label suggests, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, as opposed to standard skips, that are lifted using chains.
Will the skip come with a drop door?
Using a skip which has a drop down door will make loading rubbish into it much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste materials like dirt or concrete, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make disposing of large bulky items like pieces of furniture easier too.
Most skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, but this may sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when placing your booking if a door is required, and we will do our very best to supply this.
What is the size of a builders skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most commonly hired for building and demolition work. There are generally two sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which can be used to dispose of significant volumes of building and demolition waste materials, including earth, concrete and stone.
Although they are labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for a number of other household and business waste disposal jobs.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not need to be at home when we are delivering the skip. Providing we are able to access the place you want it delivered, we are able to manage it all.
In case you will not be at home, simply let us know any relevant delivery directions when placing your order. For instance, you may need the skip to be dropped at a particular part of the driveway. Or you may need to make sure the skip doesn’t obstruct entry to your garage.
Whatever the situation might be, provide the details when you place your order, and we will ensure your directions are passed on to the lorry driver.
What will happen to the waste?
After you have finished filling your skip, we come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling station either in or local to Caister-on-Sea where we will separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
