Below are a few of the common questions we have received regarding our skip hire service.
Cirencester Skip Hire FAQs
How long will it take to get a skip in Cirencester?
We can in most cases supply skips to Cirencester the next working day when your order is made before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking program will give you various delivery dates to select from. So whether you need a skip to arrive ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
How do I hire a skip?
Ordering a skip shouldn’t be difficult. That is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, type in your postcode to see all the different skip sizes we can deliver to Cirencester. Pick which size you would like to hire, and confirm if it will be located on your own property.

As soon as your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with your booking details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
Is it ok to pile up waste in my skip?
It is vital not to overload your skip. You can not pass the level load mark shown on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it can be very unsafe to transport. This means that when you overfill your skip, you may be required to take off the surplus waste. Regardless of how secure you feel the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. That is hazardous and is not allowed.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Cirencester?
Normally, it will be possible to get the skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But in order to do this, you must get consent from your local council in Cirencester, which is called a skip permit. We will arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for this license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.
Which skip sizes will have a drop door?
For anyone who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is perfect for getting rid of heavy building and construction materials, as it can be walked in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop down door, though these are less common. Simply because these sizes are generally low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, please let us know when placing your order. We will do our utmost to make sure a skip with a drop door is provided.
What is a mini skip?
If you have a small quantity of waste to throw out, the mini skip could be the best option. What size is identified as a mini skip differs from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they offer.
2 cubic yards is the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to have a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. Cost is dependent on the actual size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for household work including small DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Cirencester?
The price of hiring a skip in Cirencester will depend on the size of skip you require. The least expensive skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also be more if you need to have a skip positioned on the road, because you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?
This is one of the most common questions people have about our service. The most important thing to consider is that you may load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of waste that could come from garden projects, building work and property clearances.
Among the most common things that we collect in skips include garden soil, wood, bush trimmings, kitchen cabinets, baths, and other household objects.
There are also some things that you are not allowed to put in the skip. This can include any electronic goods (tumble dryers, televisions and washing machines for example), tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and getting rid of them needs to abide by an entirely different procedure to make sure they do not result in damage to the environment.
Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate from general waste to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This includes all electronic products including tumble dryers, televisions, toasters, computers and even hair straighteners.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we deliver the skip. So long as we can gain access to the place you need it located, we are able to take care of it all.
If you are not likely to be at home, simply let us know any relevant delivery directions when placing your order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be positioned on a particular area of the driveway. Alternatively, you might need to be sure that the skip doesn’t obstruct use of your garage.
Whatever the case might be, provide the information when you place your order, and we will make sure your instructions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
Will a Cirencester skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in Cirencester. We employ a network of both local and national providers to enable us to provide our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are thoroughly assessed to make certain they match the high expectations we demand in terms of service, cost and environmental performance.
Where does the rubbish be taken to when the skip is collected?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste will get separated into various waste streams, which includes stone, soil and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Do you deliver skips across Gloucestershire?
Certainly, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply skips to locations throughout Gloucestershire, such as Cirencester, Stonehouse, Filton and Tewkesbury. So no matter where you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
What is the size of a builders skip?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the common skip which is ordered across the country. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builder’s skip is perfect for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the name originates from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the biggest option which you can use for hefty waste including soil, concrete, stone and rubble.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
The standard hire time frame will be two weeks from the delivery date. However, when you book your skip, you can provide a collection date that is best for you. Obviously, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is loaded sooner than expected, tell us, and we will get it removed as quickly as possible.
Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. However, it is important to bear in mind this may not always be possible during busy periods. Once collected, the skip will be transported to a local waste transfer centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Cirencester, you will have several options to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, often referred to as a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for small household clearances and DIY work.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most popular sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also makes them suitable for house clearances involving bulky objects like pieces of furniture and beds.
We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for customers with even bigger waste disposal needs. These containers are only appropriate for light waste materials, so they cannot be hired to dispose of soil or stone.
To get more information about the different capacities offered, such as dimensions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large commercial scale skips that are used predominantly in the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for companies that generate large quantities of waste.
