Calne Skip Hire FAQs

Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?

You don’t need to be at home when the skip is delivered, however it will help. Being home when your skip arrives means you can ensure the delivery driver is given full access and that the skip will be dropped precisely where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to a business premises, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.

Even so, when you can’t be available for the delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you book your order, and then we will arrange things from there.

Will a Calne skip hire company deliver my skip?

We use a network of both regional and national skip hire companies to deliver skips to our customers in Calne and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner businesses are verified and tested to guarantee they satisfy our standards for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

The mini skip will be the smallest size provided by skip companies and is great for smaller DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip companies offer a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

What skip sizes can you deliver?

We can provide a wide selection of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip ideal for modest DIY projects and house clearances. A common choice for larger projects, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Calne businesses which have a significant quantity of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How long can I hire the skip for?

Usually, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. Once 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 contact us on our website, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.

What happens to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into a range of waste streams, including stone, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We can typically offer you a following day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, because to go on public property (such as a road), you will need to gain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of several factors that may impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it arriving in a morning or afternoon slot.

Is it okay to load my skip higher than the level load line?

It is very important not to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take out excess waste before it can be picked up. No matter what size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, as transporting an overloaded container can be unsafe, as waste could drop and lead to personal injury or damage to other people.

To avoid this issue, please ensure you order a size appropriate for your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full but you have extra waste to dispose of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.

How do you order a skip?

Hiring a skip in Calne through us is very simple. Select the skip size you will need and then input a couple of details about when and where you need the 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 to you.

Am I allowed to get rid of electrical items in my skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, because electrical items including old televisions, fridge freezers, pcs and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly manner.

What size skips will have a drop down door?

Nearly all containers can be delivered with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.

A skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, such as garden soil and bricks, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky objects, like pieces of furniture.

How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge container that can be used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These skips are primarily for industrial use but can be hired by residential customers also. Having said that, you will require plenty of space as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger in comparison to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, these containers should only be used for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and rubble.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Calne?

This will depend on the skip size you will need and if you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the lowest priced choice. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings.

What kinds of rubbish can you put in a skip?

You can throw a variety of waste types in the skip. This can include timber, floor tiles, plastics or concrete from a property clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, top soil and rock from garden tasks are allowed too. Cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be thrown in the skip.

However, there are a few things that can’t be put in a skip due to the possible ecological or health risk they can cause.

You cannot throw out your freezer, television or old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. All of these items include hazardous elements in one form or another. They should be discarded separately from normal rubbish.

If you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to schedule an independent service for this waste. Please contact us for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

What is classed as being a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most commonly hired for building and construction jobs. There are typically two skip sizes that can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of significant quantities of construction and demolition waste materials, such as soil, concrete and rock.

Although they are branded a builder’s skip, these can be used for many other household and business waste disposal jobs.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Calne?

In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need the skip to be placed on land outside of your company or residence, you will have to get permission from the local council in Calne, which is referred to as a permit. If necessary, we would be glad to arrange this for you, so it’s one less issue to think about. The council does charge a fee for your skip permit, and you should know before ordering that getting the licence can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
