How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are perfect for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furnishings and broken toys to paving slabs and garden soil. With a capacity of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip will save you having to make several journeys to the local recycling centre.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

Usually, you can have the skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you don’t need to rush through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be in when it is delivered.

Am I able to throw all types of waste in the skip?

It is possible to fill up your skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly generated from garage clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include wood, soil, concrete, garden trimmings, furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.

What you put in the skip depends on which skip size you have ordered, as there is a weight restriction. For example, in the event that you are using the skip for heavy building waste including bricks or dirt, the maximum size you could use is an 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials can not be discarded in your skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?

If you manage a company in Christchurch and want to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a great option. Offered in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips that you can hire.

As the name indicates, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, as opposed to normal skips, that are picked up by using chains.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is probably the most common skip which is ordered across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is fantastic for most building projects, which is where the label stems from.

The 8 yd builders skip will be the biggest option which you can use for hefty materials like soil, concrete, rock and gravel.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Christchurch?

A local skip firm will most likely deliver your skip in Christchurch. We utilize a network of both local and national businesses to enable us to provide our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are comprehensively assessed to guarantee they satisfy the high principles we demand regarding customer service, price and environmental performance.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Christchurch?

This depends on where the skip will be located. You will only need to have a permit if it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if your skip will be on private property, like a driveway or inside your business premises.

Should you have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, and then we can make the required arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on your own land, it will save you some pounds.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a variety of sizes to match different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is perfect for small domestic projects.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great option for loft clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to take on, a builder’s skip might be the most suitable choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label implies, these are the most popular sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, such as soil and rubble. But they can equally well be hired for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also supply 10-16 cubic yard skips and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more info on all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

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

As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into different waste materials, such as wood, metals, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?

It is vital not to overfill the skip. You must not pass the level load line that is shown on the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it becomes very unsafe to move. Which means that if you overload the skip, you could be asked to remove the excess waste. However secure you think the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be unsafe and is not allowed.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

Getting a skip with a drop down door makes loading rubbish into it so much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste like dirt or concrete, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up big bulky items such as furniture a lot easier as well.

The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, but this may sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a door is needed, and we will do our best to provide this.

Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?

Electronic products such as TVs, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste type and so cannot be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electrical items must be segregated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

Other areas covered include Wareham, Bridport, Dorchester, Lyme Regis, Blandford Forum, Wimborne Minster, Poole and Ferndown.
