Chippenham Skip Hire FAQs
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
You can usually have your skip for as many as two weeks from your date of delivery. You are able to give a preferred pick up date at the time you make your order. Otherwise, you can let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will organise the collection. Generally, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take a little longer during busy times.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Chippenham?
If at all possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface. For anyone who is carrying out a household task, then the drive will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, when neither is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you need to have a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be located on a road, grass verge or other public property in Chippenham. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be issued on your behalf. An additional fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?
When you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility either in or local to Chippenham where we will sort the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Chippenham?
A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Chippenham. We make use of a network of both local and national providers to enable us to offer our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are vetted to guarantee they satisfy the high principles we require regarding service, cost and environmental performance.
How can I order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on council property (like the street). Next, pick the day you would like your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our secure online payment platform. That’s it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Chippenham on the date you have chosen.
Do all skips have a drop door?
When you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is perfect for getting rid of hefty building and demolition waste materials, as it can be walked in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop down door, however they are less common. This is because these sizes are typically low enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to make sure a container that has a drop door is delivered.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
No, you can not put old electrical waste items in your skip. This can include things such as printers, hobs, tumble dryers, fridges and monitors. Electronic products can’t be disposed of in the skip because they can contain dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
How big is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are great for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furnishings and old baby toys to paving blocks and bricks. Having a total capacity of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip will save you needing to make multiple trips to your local recycling centre.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Chippenham?
This depends upon the size you will need and if you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the cheapest option. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge commercial size skips used predominantly in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for companies that generate large quantities of waste materials.
Do you deliver to other areas in Wiltshire?
Absolutely. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we can supply skips to residential and commercial customers across Wiltshire and elsewhere within the UK.
What things can I put in my skip?
You are allowed to throw a wide array of rubbish in the skip. This includes timber, floor tiles, metal or rubble from a household clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, dirt and rock from garden tasks are allowed too. Worktops from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be thrown in the skip.
However, there are some items that you can’t put in a skip because of the possible environmental or health risks they could trigger.
You can not get rid of your refrigerator, television or old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things include hazardous elements in one type or another. They need to be discarded separately from your general waste.
Should you need hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to arrange a separate collection for this waste. Please get in touch for further details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
Do I need to be home whenever the skip will be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be there when anybody delivers anything to your house. You can then make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed precisely where you want it.
The same applies for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can usually deliver skips to Chippenham the following working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This is applicable to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking program will give you a number of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you want your skip to arrive asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most frequently hired for building work. There are typically two sizes which can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers which you can use to get rid of substantial quantities of construction and demolition materials, such as soil, rubble and bricks.
Even though they are branded a builders skip, they can of course be used for various other household and commercial waste disposal tasks.
How many different skip sizes are there?
Skips are offered in a number of sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is good for small domestic projects.
Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent choice for garden shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
When you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to take on, a builder’s skip may be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, these represent the most frequent sizes used by builders for construction waste, like soil and hardcore. But they can just as well be used for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.
We can also offer 10-16 yard skips and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
Is it ok to load up my skip above the side?
You must not load the skip past the level load mark. If you load it above the tip of this level, it means your skip is not safe and secure to move, and you may be asked to take off any excess rubbish prior to it being collected.
