Below are a few of the frequently asked questions we get relating to our skip hire and recycling service.
Chudleigh Skip Hire FAQs
How soon can you deliver a skip in Chudleigh?
We will make sure your skip will be delivered when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the next day.
Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
It is important to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will often incur a charge for the wasted trip.
Can I put electrical products in the skip?
No, you cannot dispose of old or broken electronic waste items in a skip. This can include things like computers, microwaves, dishwashers, fridges and television sets. Electronic objects can’t be disposed of in a skip since they can include hazardous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Chudleigh?
Usually, it is possible to get the skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to get this done, you must have approval from the local authority in Chudleigh, which is called a skip permit. We are able to arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council do impose a fee for your permit, and it will sometimes take 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Chudleigh?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Chudleigh, enter your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you which sizes we provide in your location and how much each one will cost to hire. If your skip is going on the highway or other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are fantastic for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furnishings and old toys to paving slabs and soil. With a capacity of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make several visits to the local recycling centre.
How can I hire a skip in Chudleigh?
Ordering a skip in Chudleigh with us is very simple. Choose the skip size you require and enter a few details about where and when you want your skip delivered.

Will you deliver skips across Devon?
Sure, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skips to areas throughout Devon, including Chudleigh, Tavistock, Axminster and Topsham. So regardless of where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
Will a Chudleigh skip hire company deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in Chudleigh and the rest of the country. Our partner companies are verified and evaluated to ensure they meet our expectations for cost, service, recycling and reliability.
What will happen to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into different waste materials, like wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge industrial size skips that are used mainly within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for companies that generate significant amounts of waste materials.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?
You don’t need to be home when the skip is going to be delivered, but it can help. Being home when your skip is delivered means you can ensure the lorry driver is given full access and that the skip is dropped precisely where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to a company property, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, when you can’t be around during the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you place your order, and then we will organise everything from there.
Am I able to have a skip which has a drop down door?
Generally speaking, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon skip size, availability and location. If you need a drop down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip that has a drop door is mainly useful when hiring a big builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow waste into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, as they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What size is a builders skip?
The term builders skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The name comes from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are ideal for numerous household and industrial jobs. They are the largest skips which you can use for weighty builders waste such as dirt, stone and bricks.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. In most cases, that provides you with plenty of time to fill up your skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, should you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange your pick up. Just contact us once you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
What different sizes do skips come in?
Skips are offered in a variety of sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is great for small domestic tasks.
The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a good choice for shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to handle, a builder’s skip might be the best option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name implies, these represent the most popular sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, like clay and hardcore. But they can equally well be used for household rubbish such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.
We can also deliver 10-16 cubic yard bins and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For more info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
Am I allowed to load the skip above level load line?
Unfortunately not. You can only fill up the skip up to the level load line. Loading waste up above this line will make it unsafe to transport, and you could be told to remove the excess waste before your skip can be removed. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.
What waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
You are allowed to fill up your skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly produced from house clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include wood, top soil, stone, garden trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in your skip would depend on which skip size you have hired, as there is a weight restriction. For example, if you will be using your skip for heavy construction waste including concrete or garden soil, the biggest size you would be able to hire is the 8 cubic yard.
Some materials cannot be discarded in the skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.
