Castletown Skip Hire FAQs

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

The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge skip used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are predominantly for industrial use but can be used by domestic clients also. However, you will want a lot of space since these skips vary from 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, these containers should only be hired for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and bricks.

Should I be in when the skip is delivered?

No, you don’t need to be at home when we are delivering the skip. As long as we are able to access where you need it located, we can take care of it all.

For those who are not going to be at home, simply let us have any relevant delivery instructions when you book the order. For example, you might need the skip to be dropped at a particular side of the drive. Or you might need to make sure the skip does not obstruct use of your garage.

No matter what the case may be, provide the details when ordering, and we will make sure the instructions are passed to the delivery driver.

How can I order a skip?

Through a network of local and national skip hire and recycling businesses, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to Castletown, Ramsey or Douglas, we have got it covered.

What happens to the waste in my skip?

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into a range of waste types, such as stone, soil and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips come in a wide range of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is great for small domestic projects.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a good option for attic clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial waste disposal job to take on, the builder’s skip may be the most suitable choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name suggests, these represent the most popular sizes ordered by builders for building waste, such as soil and rubble. But they can just as well be used for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen units.

We also offer 10-16 cubic yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

How much waste can a mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are great for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.

They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and old toys to paving slabs and garden soil. Having a total capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make multiple trips to the local recycling centre.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

Nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, making them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the skip, especially with weighty materials, such as soil and bricks, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky objects, like furniture.

Who will deliver my skip?

To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work together with a variety of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we can supply customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.

When will my skip be delivered?

Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We will usually offer you a next day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, as to be on public property (such as a street), you will need to get a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.

As a result of many factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it arriving within a AM or PM slot.

How long can I keep the skip for?

You can usually have your skip for as many as two weeks from your delivery date. You are able to give a chosen collection day at the time you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have finished with the skip, and we will plan the collection. Generally, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer over busy periods.

How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?

The builders skip is probably the most popular skip used across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is fantastic for most building jobs, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the largest option which can be used for heavy waste such as garden soil, concrete, rock and rubble.

What sort of waste can you throw in a skip?

You are allowed to fill the skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly generated from home clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, dirt, concrete, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you throw in your skip depends on which skip size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, if you are using your skip for heavy construction waste like bricks or garden soil, the biggest size you can get is an 8 yard builders skip.

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

Can I dispose of electrical products in the skip?

No, you can not throw old electronic waste products in your skip. This includes such things as laptops, hobs, tumble dryers, freezers and televisions. Electric products can’t be discarded in a skip since they can contain hazardous materials and components.

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

Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Castletown?

Usually, it will be possible to get your skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But in order to do this, you have got to have consent from your local authority in Castletown, which is known as a skip permit. We will order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will impose a fee for this permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.

Can I fill the skip above level load mark?

It is important to not overload a skip, as you risk being asked to take off excess waste before it can be collected. Regardless of the size you order, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, since moving an overloaded bin is dangerous, as objects could fall and result in personal injury or damage to others.

To prevent this situation, please be sure to hire a skip size appropriate for your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full but you have further rubbish to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.

What is the cost of skip hire in Castletown?

Our aim is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Castletown. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip that you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have a skip placed on the street or other council property, you will also need to factor in the added expense of the skip permit.
