Camborne Skip Hire FAQs
Do all skips have a drop down door?
For anybody who is choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is designed for getting rid of hefty building and construction waste, as it can be walked in the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop door, though these are generally more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are generally low enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip with a drop door is delivered.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
We are able to provide a full range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip great for modest DIY jobs and house clearances. A common option for larger sized tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Camborne companies which produce a large amount of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How can I hire a skip?
Ordering a skip in Camborne through us is very straightforward. Select the skip size you require and input a few details about where and when you would like your skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and schedule to have your skip delivered on the date selected.
How much will skip hire in Camborne cost?
The cost of getting a skip in Camborne is determined by the size of skip you require. The cheapest skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you require a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also increase if you need to have a skip placed on the road, because you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Am I allowed to throw electrical products in the skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric goods must be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This includes all electronic goods such as cookers, TVs, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.
How big is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are perfect for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and old toys to paving slabs and soil. With a capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you having to make several trips to the local recycling centre.
When will my skip be delivered?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We will normally offer a next day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, since to go on public property (such as a street), you will have to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of several factors that may impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it arriving in a AM or PM slot.
Can you deliver skips across Cornwall?
Certainly. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we are able to provide skips to household and industrial customers across Cornwall and elsewhere within the UK.
What sort of waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
This is amongst the most common questions people have about skip hire. The main thing to consider is that you can load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of waste which can come from garden projects, building work and household clearances.
Among the most common things that we find in our skips include garden soil, timber, bush cuttings, kitchen units, baths, and various household products.
There are some waste materials that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This can include any electronic items (fridge freezers, televisions or laptops for example), tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all deemed hazardous waste, and disposing of them must follow an entirely different procedure to ensure they do not cause harm to the environment.
Will a skip hire company from Camborne deliver my skip?
To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work together with a variety of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to provide customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.
How long can I hire the skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, this gives you sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, if you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just let us know when you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
What is a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often hired for building and construction work. There are generally two skip sizes that may be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to dispose of large quantities of building and demolition waste materials, such as soil, rubble and rock.
Although they are labelled a builders skip, they can be used for many other domestic and industrial waste disposal jobs.
Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Camborne?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like your skip to be placed on land outside of your company or house, you need to receive permission from the local council in Camborne, which is called a permit. If necessary, we would be glad to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for the permit, and you should be aware before ordering that securing the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial industrial scale skips that are used predominantly within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for businesses that generate significant volumes of waste.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be at your property when your skip is being delivered, but it will help. Being in when your skip is due to be delivered means you can ensure the lorry can be given complete access and that the skip will be positioned precisely where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is hired to your company premises, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, when you can’t be around during delivery, don’t worry. We just ask that you tell us when you place your order, and then we will organise things from there.
What happens to my waste once the skip is collected?
The waste in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station. Here the contents will be separated by machinery and also by hand into different waste materials, like soil, cardboard, concrete and wood. Processing the waste in this way helps to maximise the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.
Can I stack up waste in my skip?
It is important not to overfill a skip. You can not pass the level load line that is indicated along the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it becomes very unsafe to move. Which means that when you overload the skip, you may be asked to remove the excess rubbish. Regardless of how safe you believe the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This can be dangerous and is therefore not allowed.
