Chatteris Skip Hire FAQs

Can I put electrical products in my skip?

Electric powered objects including televisions, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore should not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered items must be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Chatteris?

Our aim is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Chatteris. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip that you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have a skip located on the road or any other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the added price of the skip permit.

What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the different waste streams, including timber, metals, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container that can be used to dispose of huge volumes of waste materials. Predominantly, these containers are used for industrial uses. Having said that, residential customers can also hire them. It is important to take into account the space they will take up, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be utilised for lightweight materials such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of dirt and rubble.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will make sure your skip will be provided on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the next day.

Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our best to reach you within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

You should make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will usually incur a fee for the wasted journey.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?

Getting a skip which has a drop down door helps make loading waste into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste materials like soil or rubble, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading large bulky objects like pieces of furniture much easier as well.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, although this will sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our very best to provide this.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Chatteris?

Usually, it will be possible to get a skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to do this, you will need to have approval from the local council in Chatteris, which is known as a skip permit. We can order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for the permit, and it may sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

How much waste can a mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the most compact skip delivered by skip firms and is great for small DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies offer you a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

What can I put in the skip?

You may use a skip to discard many different waste types. We are used to picking up and handling a wide variety of items generated from construction work, garden landscaping and household clean-ups. Some examples of allowed waste types include things like:

  • Household furniture
  • Garden cuttings
  • Garden soil
  • Concrete
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Cabinets and units

Many waste materials are accepted, so whether you wish to throw out furniture, plastics, wood or unwanted toys, we can usually take your waste away.

The quantity and items you throw into your skip can vary according to which size skip you ordered. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you wish to get rid of top soil and hardcore, as an example, the biggest size container you will be able to use will be the 8 yard builders skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?

There are a few waste materials which you will not be able to throw out in the skip. The reason behind this is that these goods contain hazardous components that may damage the environment. They could also be damaging to human health, so they need to be discarded separately under UK regulations.

A few examples of the items that are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer monitors
  • Battery packs
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

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

You don’t really need to be home when the skip is going to be delivered, however it can help. Being in when your skip is due for delivery means that you can make sure the delivery driver can be given full access and that your skip will be placed precisely where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is being delivered to your company premises, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

Having said that, for those who can’t be available at the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to let us know when you book your order, and then we will arrange things from there.

What is the size of a builders skip?

The builder’s skip is regarded as the frequent skip which is used throughout the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is perfect for most building jobs, which is where the label stems from.

The 8 yard builders skip will be the biggest option that can be used for hefty waste including garden soil, concrete, stone and gravel.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

Our normal hire term will be 14 days from the date of delivery. However, when you order your skip, you can select a collection date that is ideal for you. Of course, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if the skip is loaded sooner than anticipated, let us know, and we will get it collected as soon as possible.

Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to keep in mind that this is not always the case during busy times. Once collected, the waste will be transported to a local waste transfer centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Can I load the skip above level load mark?

No, you can only fill up the skip up to the level load line. Loading waste materials up over this line makes it dangerous to transport, and you might be asked to get rid of the surplus waste before your skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to raise the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.

Other areas covered include Ely, Cambridge, Ramsey, March, St Ives, Whittlesey, St Neots and Peterborough.
