Charlbury Skip Hire FAQs

What can I put in the skip?

Prior to hiring a skip, you must ensure that the type of rubbish you want to get rid of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials have to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Some examples of waste types you may throw in your skip include home items like furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You can also use a skip to get rid of building and demolition rubbish, such as old bricks, dirt, stone, metals and gravel.

Examples of forbidden items include electronic items, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently must be disposed of separately from general waste.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact skip delivered by skip firms and is great for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms provide a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

Do I have to be there when the skip is delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be in at the time the skip is delivered. You can then ensure that the skip lorry has total access and that the skip can be placed exactly where you need it. The same is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, especially if gates limit access.

Having said that, if this isn’t feasible, you do not have to be concerned. Simply let us know when you are placing your booking, and we will handle the rest.

Will a skip hire company from Charlbury deliver my skip?

To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work in partnership with a variety of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to guarantee we can offer customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.

Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Charlbury?

In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want your skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or residence, you have got to secure permission from your local council in Charlbury, which is referred to as a skip permit. If required, we would gladly arrange this on your behalf, so it’s one less thing to think about. The council does charge a fee for your skip permit, and you should be aware before booking that obtaining the permit can often take up to 2 working days.

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?

Electronic products such as televisions, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous type of waste and so cannot be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric items have to be segregated from other waste. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly manner.

Will you deliver skips across Oxfordshire?

We provide a UK wide skip hire and recycling service through a network of verified and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you want skip hire in Charlbury, Bicester, Thame, Watlington or another site in Oxfordshire, we can assist.

Can I stack up the waste in my skip?

No. You can only pack the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking rubbish up above this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you might be told to take away the surplus waste before your skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The term builders skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yard skip. The term comes from the fact that they are the most typical sizes that are ordered by builders and tradespeople.

These big skips are ideal for numerous types of household and commercial jobs. These are the biggest sizes which can be used for hefty builders waste such as top soil, stone and bricks.

How do I order a skip?

We have created our booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. The first task is to type in your postcode to view all the different skip sizes we are able to deliver in Charlbury. Pick the best size to meet your needs and provide the details of where and when you want the skip delivered. You then make payment through the secure payment platform, and we will send you an email to confirm your order as soon as your booking is done!

How long can I keep the skip for?

The regular hire term will be 2 weeks from the date of delivery. However, when you book the skip, you can let us know a collection date that is ideal for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is full earlier than anticipated, let us know, and we will get it picked up as soon as possible.

We will usually be out to get your skip within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to bear in mind this may not be possible at busy times. Once collected, the skip will be transported to a local waste recycling station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

What different sizes do skips come in?

We provide a complete range of skip capacities to domestic and business customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the enormous 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

Here are the different sizes offered, with a rough idea of the amount of rubbish each size is capable of holding:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
  • 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags

How long does it take to get a skip in Charlbury?

We can in most cases supply skips to Charlbury the next working day when an order is made before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking program offers you a range of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you need your skip to arrive asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.

Will my skip come with a drop door?

In general, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop door, depending on size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip with a drop door is mainly helpful if you are hiring a large builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow waste directly into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, as they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?

After you have finished with your skip, we come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling centre in or local to Charlbury where we will sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

What is the cost of skip hire in Charlbury?

This depends on the size you need and whether you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the cheapest choice. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings. To get an immediate price for skip hire in Charlbury, simply enter the delivery postcode into the search box above.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial commercial size skips used predominantly within the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for organisations that produce significant quantities of waste.

Other areas covered include Bicester, Thame, Watlington, Abingdon-on-Thames, Wallingford, Didcot, Oxford and Faringdon.
