Can you deliver to other areas in Cornwall?

Indeed, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skip sizes to areas throughout Cornwall, such as Callington, Fowey, Launceston and St Blazey. So regardless of where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?

No, you don’t need to be at home when we deliver the skip. Provided that we can access the place you need it positioned, we will take care of it all.

For those who will not be in, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when you place your order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be dropped at a particular area of the drive. Alternatively, you may want to ensure that the skip doesn’t block entry to your garage.

Whatever the situation may be, simply let us know when you place your order, and then we will ensure your instructions are passed to the lorry driver.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

You can typically keep a skip for as many as 2 weeks from the date of delivery. You can provide a chosen collection day at the time you place your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have finished with the skip, and then we will organise the collection. Generally, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take a little longer over busy times.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips are offered in a number of different sizes to match various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is great for small domestic jobs.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold around 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is an excellent option for garage clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial waste disposal job to sort out, a builder’s skip could be the best option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label implies, they are the most typical sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, including soil and stone. However they can just as well be used for domestic waste such as old furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also supply 10-16 yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For more information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

If you are looking for a cheap skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to tackle numerous tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be positioned on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

Although most commonly hired by residential customers, the mini skip can even handle small commercial jobs.

Am I allowed to throw all sorts of rubbish in a skip?

You are able to load the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from garage clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include wood, dirt, rubble, hedge trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you put in your skip depends on the size you have ordered, as there is a weight limit. For instance, in the event that you will be using a skip for heavy building waste including concrete or top soil, the maximum size you could hire is the 8 cubic yard.

Some materials cannot be disposed of in the skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.

What is the process of ordering a skip in Callington?

This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you would like to hire. Tell us if the skip will be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (like the road). Next, choose the day you need your skip to get delivered. Check your order and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. Job done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Callington on the date you have chosen.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The term builders skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yard skip. The name comes from the fact that these are the most popular sizes ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These big skips are ideal for numerous household and industrial jobs. They are the largest skips which you can use for hefty builders waste such as top soil, stone and gravel.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Callington?

This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if the skip will be on private property, like a drive or on your business premises.

If you do have to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can place your skip on private land, you will save some pounds.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

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

Will my skip come with a drop down door?

Nearly all skip sizes can be delivered with a drop door, making them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.

A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, such as garden soil and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, such as furniture.

Is it ok to fill the skip above level load mark?

It is important to not overload your skip. You can not pass the level load mark that is shown on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it will become very hazardous to move. Which means that if you overload the skip, you might be required to take away the surplus rubbish. However secure you believe the skip to be, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be hazardous and is not allowed.

Other areas covered include Fowey, Launceston, St Blazey, St Ives, Padstow, Market Jew, Falmouth and Hayle.
