Below are a few of the typical questions we have received about our skip hire services.
Carterton Skip Hire FAQs
What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?
This is one of the most popular questions people have about our skip hire service. The main thing to keep in mind is that you may load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of rubbish that can result from garden work, building work and property clearances.
Some of the most common things which we pick up in our skips include soil, wood, tree trimmings, cabinets, sinks, and various other household items.
There are also some materials that you are not allowed to put in the skip. This consists of any electrical items (fridge freezers, monitors or laptops for example), old car tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and therefore getting rid of them needs to follow an entirely different process to make sure they don’t result in harm to the environment.
Am I able to throw electronic products in the skip?
Unfortunately it is not permitted, because electrical products like old televisions, cookers, laptops and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items have to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly way.
Who will deliver my skip?
To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work in partnership with a number of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to provide customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Carterton?
This will depend on the size you require and whether you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the cheapest option. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings.

Which skip sizes have a drop door?
The majority of skips can be delivered with a drop down door, making them easy to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the container, especially with heavy materials, like soil and rubble, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.
How long does it take to get a skip in Carterton?
We will ensure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the following day.
Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to reach you within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
It is important to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will most likely incur a charge for the wasted journey.
Will you deliver skips across Oxfordshire?
Yes. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we can provide skips to both residential and commercial customers throughout Oxfordshire and elsewhere within the UK.
What sizes do skips come in?
We offer a wide range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for modest DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A common option for larger jobs, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Carterton companies which have a big amount of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Carterton?
This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only need a permit when it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit when your skip is on private property, such as a driveway or within your business premises.
Should you need to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know as part of the order process, and we can make the required arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can have your skip on private property, it will save you a few pounds.
How much waste will the mini skip hold?
When you have a small amount of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip could be the ideal solution. What size is described as a mini skip varies from business to business, determined by what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is probably the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. The price is dependent on the actual size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are best for residential work like modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you want it put on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?
A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a huge container that is used to get rid of large amounts of waste. These skips are predominantly for business use but can be used by domestic customers also. Having said that, you will need a good amount of space as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger than the average skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, these containers should only be used for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and rubble.
How do I order a skip?
We have developed our booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. The first task is to enter your delivery address to see the range of skip sizes we are able to supply in Carterton. Pick the best size to meet your requirements and give us the details of where and when you would like the skip to be delivered. After that you can make payment through the secure payment system, and we will send you an email to verify your order as soon as your booking is complete!
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is the most common skip ordered across the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builder’s skip is ideal for most building and demolition jobs, which is where the name comes from.
The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip will be the largest option which can be used for hefty waste materials like garden soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.
What will happen to the rubbish once the skip is picked up?
The rubbish in the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling facility. Here the waste will be sorted by machines and by hand into numerous waste materials, like soil, paper, stone and timber. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can normally keep the skip for up to a fortnight from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of offering a preferred collection day when you make your order.
Alternatively, just tell us when you’ve finished loading up your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It might take a little longer to pick up your skip during busy times, but we will always endeavour to come as quickly as possible.
Am I allowed to fill up the skip above the top?
I’m afraid not. You are only allowed to pack the skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste up above this line would make it unsafe to move, and you can be told to get rid of the excess waste before your skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you do not need to be at home when we are delivering the skip. So long as we are able to access where you need it delivered, we can manage it all.
In the event you are not going to be in, simply let us have any relevant delivery instructions when you place the order. For instance, you may prefer the skip to be positioned at a particular part of the driveway. Or you might want to ensure the skip doesn’t prevent use of your garage.
Whatever the situation might be, tell us when you place your order, and then we will make sure the directions are passed to the delivery driver.
