Castle Cary Skip Hire FAQs
Do I have to be there whenever the skip is delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we deliver your skip. Providing we can access where you want it located, we can take care of everything.
If you will not be in, simply let us know any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For instance, you may prefer the skip to be located on a particular part of your property. Or you may want to ensure that the skip does not prevent use of your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, simply tell us when ordering, and then we will make sure the directions will be passed to the delivery driver.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact size available from skip companies and is designed for small DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip companies offer a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
How do I order a skip online?
We have developed our booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first task is to enter your delivery postcode to view all the different skip sizes we can supply in Castle Cary. Pick the best size to meet your needs and enter the details of when and where you would like the skip to be delivered. Then you can make payment with our secure payment system, and we will send you an email to confirm your order as soon as your order is complete!
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Castle Cary?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only require a permit when it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit if your skip is on private property, like a driveway or on your company premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we will 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 necessary arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place your skip on private property, it will save you a few pounds.
What will happen to the waste once the skip is picked up?
Once you have finished with your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Castle Cary where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
What sort of waste am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?
You can use your skip to dispose of lots of different waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and handling a multitude of items from building jobs, garden projects and household clean-ups. A few examples of allowed waste products can include:
- Pieces of furniture
- Hedge cuttings
- Top soil
- Bricks and rubble
- Bathroom toilets and sinks
- Cabinets and units
Most waste materials will be accepted, and so whether you wish to throw out metals, plastic materials, timber or unwanted toys, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The volume and items you throw in your skip can vary according to the size skip you have ordered. All skips have a weight limit for safety purposes. So if you wish to discard top soil and gravel, as an example, the biggest size container you would be permitted to use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
What kind of items am I not allowed to put in the skip?
There are some waste materials which you are not permitted to dispose of in the skip. The reason for this is that these products contain hazardous materials that may harm the environment. They can also be damaging to human health, so they need to be disposed of separately within UK laws.
Some examples of the things that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- PC monitors
- Battery packs
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
Usually, you can have your skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you don’t have to rush through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to 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 soon as possible.
What size skips do you provide?
Skips come in a wide range of sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is great for small residential projects.
Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yard is an excellent choice for shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more significant waste disposal job to tackle, a builder’s skip might be the best option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title implies, these are the most typical sizes hired by builders for construction waste, including soil and stone. However they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We also offer 10-16 cubic yard skips and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
Who will deliver my skip?
As we provide a national waste management service, we use a comprehensive network of verified and approved companies. These can range from small family-run skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental requirements.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve requested. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your booking before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver your skip, we try to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery location, as unsuccessful deliveries will result in a fee for the wasted trip.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Castle Cary?
To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Castle Cary, enter your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display the skip sizes we provide in your area and how much each one costs to hire. If your skip is going to be on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.
Is it ok to fill the skip higher than the level load mark?
You must not fill up a skip past the level load line. If you load it over the tip of this mark, it means that your skip is not secure to move, and you could be asked to take off any excess rubbish before it can be picked up.
Can you deliver skips across Somerset?
Certainly. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we can offer skips to household and commercial customers across Somerset and anywhere else in the UK.
Am I able to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot dispose of old electrical waste items in a skip. This includes things such as computers, hobs, dishwashers, refrigerators and television sets. Electric objects can’t be disposed of in the skip since they can include dangerous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
What is classed as a builder’s skip?
The phrase builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The label originates from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes hired by builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are perfect for numerous types of domestic and industrial tasks. They are the largest sizes which you can use for heavy builders waste like dirt, stone and bricks.
What skip sizes will have a drop down door?
Getting a skip with a drop door can make filling rubbish into it so much easier. This is especially true with heavy waste like dirt or rubble, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading large bulky items such as furniture easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, however it will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a door is required, and we will do our very best to deliver this.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge commercial scale skips used predominantly within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for organisations that generate large volumes of waste.
