Below are a few of the typical questions we receive regarding our skip hire services.
Cinderford Skip Hire FAQs
Am I able to throw electronic products in my skip?
Electrical products like TVs, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so should not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical products must be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Cinderford?
This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only need a permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if your skip will be on private property, like a drive or inside your company premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate the skip on your own property, you will save some pounds.
How large is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you have a company in Cinderford and want to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips that are available.
As the name implies, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike conventional skips, that are lifted using chains.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
Once you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and get it. It will be transported to a waste recycling centre in or local to Cinderford where we separate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
Normally, you can have the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you do not need to hurry through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
It is always a good idea to be available when anybody delivers anything to your property. That allows you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be dropped precisely where you want it.
The same applies for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
What types of waste can I get rid of in a skip?
Prior to hiring a skip, it is important to ensure that the type of rubbish you want to dispose of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials have to be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you may put in a skip include home goods like furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You may also use your skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, including old bricks, soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Examples of forbidden items include electronic products, tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently must be discarded separately from your general waste.
Who will deliver my skip?
Since we offer a national waste management service, we utilise a diverse network of verified businesses. These range from small local skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental standards.
Do you deliver skips across Gloucestershire?
Sure, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skips to locations throughout Gloucestershire, such as Cinderford, Nailsworth, Thornbury and Cirencester. So regardless of where you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
What is classed as being a builders skip?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most commonly hired for building work. There are generally two sizes that may be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which you can use to get rid of significant amounts of building and demolition materials, such as soil, rubble and bricks.
Although they are labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for a number of other domestic and industrial waste disposal jobs.
Can I fill my skip higher than the side?
It is important to not overload your skip. You must not pass the level load mark indicated along the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it becomes very hazardous to move. Which means that if you overfill your skip, you might be asked to remove the surplus rubbish. Regardless of how safe you think the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This is hazardous and is therefore prohibited.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Cinderford, you will have several options to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for small household clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most popular sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also makes them perfect for household clear ups involving large objects such as furniture and beds.
We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people and businesses with even larger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only suitable for light waste, so they can’t be hired to get rid of soil or rubble.

Our simple online booking program offers you various delivery dates to choose from. So whether you would like a skip to arrive ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
How much will skip hire in Cinderford cost?
The price of getting a skip in Cinderford will depend on the size of skip you need. The lowest priced option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you need a larger skip, like an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you want to have your skip on the highway, since you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
How big is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact skip delivered by skip companies and is ideal for smaller DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Which skip sizes will have a drop door?
Having a skip which has a drop down door makes loading rubbish into it a lot easier. This is especially the case with hefty materials like dirt and rubble, which can then be loaded into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading up big bulky objects like pieces of furniture a lot easier as well.
The majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, but this will sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to supply this.
