Chipping Norton Skip Hire FAQs

What is the process of hiring a skip in Chipping Norton?

This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you would like to hire. Let us know whether the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on council property (like the road). Then, pick the day you need your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. Job done! We will deliver your skip to Chipping Norton on the day you have chosen.

Am I allowed to fill the skip higher than the side?

No, you must only pack your skip up to the level load line. Loading rubbish up above this line will make it dangerous to move, and you may be told to take off the surplus waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.

Can I throw all sorts of rubbish in a skip?

A skip can be used to discard many different types of waste. We are used to collecting and handling a multitude of materials produced from construction jobs, garden landscaping and property tidy-ups. Examples of allowed waste types include:

  • Home furniture
  • Tree cuttings
  • Garden soil
  • Stone and concrete
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many waste materials are usually accepted, therefore whether you would like to dispose of furniture, plastic materials, timber or old toys, we can usually take your waste away.

The quantity and items you put into the skip may vary based on the size skip you chosen. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you want to get rid of garden soil and hardcore, for example, the largest size container you would be permitted to use would be the 8 cubic yard skip.

What type of materials am I not allowed to put in my skip?

There are some waste materials that you will not be able to discard in the skip. The reason for this is that these items contain hazardous components which may harm the environment. They can also be harmful to human health, and so they must be disposed of separately within UK legislation.

A few examples of the items which are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Will a skip hire company from Chipping Norton deliver my skip?

A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in Chipping Norton. We utilize a network of both local and national providers to allow us to provide our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These firms are thoroughly vetted to ensure they match the high expectations we require regarding service, cost and environmental performance.

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

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most commonly hired for building and demolition jobs. There are typically two different sizes which can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to get rid of significant amounts of construction and demolition waste materials, such as garden soil, concrete and stone.

Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can be used for multiple other residential and business waste disposal tasks.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Chipping Norton?

Our goal is to provide you with the cheapest skip hire service in Chipping Norton. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip that you order. This ranges 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 located on the highway or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the additional cost of a skip permit.

Am I able to dispose of electronic products in the skip?

Unfortunately this is not allowed, because electronic products including old televisions, fridge freezers, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects have to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly way.

Will you deliver skips across Oxfordshire?

We provide a national skip hire and recycling service using a network of verified and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you want skip hire in Chipping Norton, Carterton, Oxford, Faringdon or any other site in Oxfordshire, we can help.

Will my skip have a drop down door?

Getting a skip which has a drop down door can make filling rubbish into it a lot easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste materials such as soil and concrete, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away large bulky objects such as household furniture easier too.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, however this can sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a door is required, and we will do our very best to supply this.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size available from skip firms and is perfect for smaller DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

How many different skip sizes are there?

Skips come in a wide range of sizes to match various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is great for small domestic jobs.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a good option for shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial waste disposal task to undertake, the builder’s skip may be the best choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title suggests, these are the most popular sizes used by builders for building waste, such as clay and hardcore. However they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also provide 10-16 yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For further details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you complete your booking before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can typically have the skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver your skip, we endeavour to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery location, as failed deliveries will result in a fee for a wasted journey.

If I need a skip on the road in Chipping Norton, will I need to have a permit?

In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you want the skip to be located on land outside of your business or residence, you need to get authorisation from your local authority in Chipping Norton, which is called a permit. If required, we will be happy to arrange this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for your permit, plus you should know before booking that getting the licence can sometimes take up to 2 working days.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, this will provide you with sufficient time to fill up the skip. However, if you need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, if you finish with the skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your pick up. Just let us know once you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

It is usually best if you can be in when anyone delivers something to your home. That enables you to ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it.

The same thing applies if you have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.

What will happen to the waste in my skip?

Once you have finished with your skip, we will come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility in or local to Chipping Norton where we will separate the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

A roll-on roll-off skip, often known as a RORO, is a massive skip that can be used to get rid of large amounts of rubbish. These skips are primarily for commercial use but can be used by residential customers also. Having said that, you will require a good amount of room as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger when compared to the typical skip you will see on the roadside.

Due to the size, roro skips should only be hired for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suitable for disposing of soil and rubble.

Other areas covered include Carterton, Oxford, Faringdon, Wantage, Didcot, Watlington, Thame and Henley-on-Thames.
