Camelford Skip Hire FAQs

Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Camelford?

In most cases, it is possible to have your skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to get this done, you need to have approval from your local council in Camelford, which is known as a skip permit. We can arrange this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.

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

A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a huge container that can be used to dispose of large quantities of rubbish. These containers are predominantly for business use but can be hired by residential customers too. Having said that, you need a good amount of room because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger compared to the average skip you will see on the roadside.

As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off containers should only be used for light materials such as plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and bricks.

Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?

If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into a range of waste streams, which includes timber, soil and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the waste is recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

What size is a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most commonly hired for construction projects. There are typically two different sizes that may be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to get rid of substantial volumes of building and demolition waste materials, like soil, rubble and rock.

Although they are branded a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for a number of other household and commercial waste disposal jobs.

Will a Camelford skip hire company deliver my skip?

We utilise a network of both local and national skip hire businesses to supply skips to our clients in Camelford and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner firms are verified and evaluated to make sure they meet our standards for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

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

No, you don’t need to be home when we are delivering the skip. As long as we are able to gain access to where you want it positioned, we are able to take care of everything.

If you are not likely to be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery instructions when placing your order. For instance, you might need the skip to be positioned at a particular area of the driveway. Or you may need to be sure that the skip does not block entry to your garage.

Whatever the case might be, let us know when ordering, and then we will make sure your directions will be passed on to the delivery driver.

Am I allowed to put electrical products in my skip?

No, you can not throw old or unwanted electronic waste products in a skip. This can include things such as laptops, hobs, dishwashers, fridges and televisions. Electronic objects can’t be discarded in the skip because they can have hazardous materials and components.

As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.

How long can I keep a skip for?

You can typically have the skip for as many as two weeks from the delivery date. You are able to give a preferred collection date when you place your order. Otherwise, you can let us know when you have finished, and we will arrange the collection. Normally, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a little longer over busy periods.

Am I able to dispose of all sorts of waste in my skip?

It is possible to fill up your skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly generated from loft clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include timber, top soil, concrete, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you throw in the skip depends on the size you have ordered, because there is a weight limit. For instance, if you will be using a skip for heavy construction waste such as stone or dirt, the largest size you can hire is the 8 cubic yard.

Some materials should not be disposed of in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Camelford?

The price of getting a skip in Camelford is determined by the size of skip you require. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you require a larger skip, like an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also increase if you want to have your skip positioned on the road, since you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you have asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you confirm your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive, we try to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you make sure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery location, as failed deliveries can result in a fee for a wasted trip.

Do all skips have a drop door?

Generally, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, depending on skip size, availability and location. If you require a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip which has a drop door is primarily helpful if you are choosing a large builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, as they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Is it ok to stack up waste in my skip?

You should not load a skip past the level load line. When you fill it up over the tip of this mark, it means that the skip is not secure to transport, and you can be asked to remove the excess rubbish before it can be collected.

What size is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size provided by skip companies and is good for small DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms offer you a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

Do you deliver skips across Cornwall?

As well as delivering skips and containers to Camelford, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Cornwall. With the help of our network of local and national waste management and recycling companies, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business in Camelford, Stratton or Liskeard, we have got it covered.

What size skips do you deliver?

Skips are offered in a wide range of different sizes to match various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small domestic jobs.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent option for garden shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant rubbish disposal task to handle, a builder’s skip might be the most suitable choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, these represent the most common sizes ordered by builders for building waste, like clay and stone. However they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.

We can also provide 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
