Clacton-on-Sea Skip Hire FAQs

Is it possible to get a skip which has a drop door?

Getting a skip that has a drop door will make loading waste into it much easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste materials such as garden soil or hardcore, which can then be loaded into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading large bulky items like household furniture a lot easier as well.

Most skip containers can be provided with a drop door, but this may sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a door is required, and we will do our very best to supply this.

How can I order a skip in Clacton-on-Sea?

Ordering a skip in Clacton-on-Sea through us is incredibly easy. Choose the skip size you will need and then enter a couple of details about where and when you would like your skip delivered. Then you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and schedule to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

Am I able to put electronic products in the skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric objects have to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric items like washing machines, TVs, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.

Do you deliver skips across Essex?

Through a network of local and national waste management and recycling companies, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business in Clacton-on-Sea, Thaxted or Stansted Mountfitchet, we have got it covered.

Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?

No, you do not have to be home when we are delivering your skip. Providing we are able to gain access to the place you need it delivered, we are able to take care of it all.

If you will not be in, simply let us have any relevant delivery directions when placing the order. For instance, you might prefer the skip to be dropped at a particular area of the driveway. Alternatively, you may need to make sure the skip doesn’t prevent entry to your garage.

No matter what the situation may be, simply let us know when ordering, and we will ensure your instructions are passed on to the delivery driver.

What happens to the waste?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into various waste streams, including wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Am I allowed to dispose of all sorts of rubbish in a skip?

You are able to throw a variety of waste in the skip. This can include timber, bathroom tiles, plastics or bricks from a property clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, top soil and stone from garden jobs are allowed too. Cupboards and worktops from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be thrown in a skip.

There are, however, a few things that you are not allowed to put in a skip because of the potential ecological or health risk they could cause.

You can not throw in your fridge, printer or your old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items include hazardous materials in one form or another. They must be discarded separately from your general waste.

If you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to organise an independent service for this material. Please email for more information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

How big is a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most frequently supplied for building projects. There are usually two different sizes which can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers which can be used to dispose of large volumes of construction and demolition materials, like dirt, rubble and bricks.

Although labelled a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for various other domestic and industrial waste disposal tasks.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Clacton-on-Sea?

To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work in partnership with a variety of local and national businesses. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to make sure we can offer customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

You can normally hire the skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection is as convenient as possible, you will have the option of giving a preferred collection time when placing your order.

Alternatively, just tell us when you have finished with your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the following working day.

It can take a little while longer to collect your skip over busy times, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.

What is the cost of skip hire in Clacton-on-Sea?

Our aim is to give you the cheapest skip hire service in Clacton-on-Sea. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have your skip placed on the road or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the additional expense of the skip permit.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you confirm your booking before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we try to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery spot, as failed delivery attempts can lead to a charge for a wasted trip.

Is it okay to load my skip above the top?

It is essential not to overload your skip. You must not pass the level load line that is indicated along the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it can be very hazardous to move. Which means that when you overfill your skip, you might be asked to take away the excess waste. However safe you feel the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be hazardous and is therefore not allowed.

How big is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are ideal for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.

They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and broken toys to paving slabs and bricks. With a volume of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make multiple trips to the local recycling centre.

How large is a roll-on roll-off container?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to transport significant amounts of waste. Mostly, these type of skips are used for industrial purposes. Having said that, household customers may also use them. It is essential to take into account the space they will take up, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be utilised for light materials including paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and concrete.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Clacton-on-Sea?

In most situations, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you would like your skip to be located on land outside of your business or house, you will need to secure authorisation from the local council in Clacton-on-Sea, which is called a permit. If required, we would be glad to arrange this for you, therefore it’s one less issue to think about. The council does charge a fee for your skip permit, plus you should know before booking that obtaining the licence can often take up to 2 working days.

What are the different skip sizes to pick from?

Skips come in a wide range of sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is great for small household projects.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold roughly 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yd is a fantastic choice for shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more significant waste disposal job to undertake, the builder’s skip could be the best choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title indicates, these are the most common sizes hired by builders for building waste, such as clay and rubble. However they can equally well be hired for domestic rubbish such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also provide 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional info on the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
