Clare Skip Hire FAQs

Do I need to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?

It is always best if you can be there when anybody delivers anything to your property. That enables you to make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be dropped just where you want it.

The same goes for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.

However, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.

Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?

Unfortunately not, since electronic items like old TVs, freezers, computers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly way.

Which skip sizes can have a drop door?

Generally speaking, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, depending on size, availability and location. If you need a drop down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Having a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful if hiring a large builder’s skip, as it allows you to wheelbarrow waste into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How do I hire a skip online?

We have built our booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. Step one is to enter your delivery address to see all the different skip sizes we can provide in Clare. Select the best size to meet your needs and provide the details of when and where you need your skip to be delivered. Then you can make payment with our secure payment platform, and we will send an email to confirm your order once your booking is complete!

What is classed as being a builders skip?

The builders skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the largest skips used to discard heavy building and construction materials such as rock, bricks, rubble or soil.

The builder’s skip is great for a number of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out your shed, these big containers are usually the most cost-effective choice available.

What types of waste am I allowed to put in a skip?

You can use your skip to throw out lots of different waste materials. We are used to collecting and processing numerous items generated from building work, garden projects and household clean-ups. A few examples of allowed waste materials include things like:

  • Furniture
  • Garden trimmings
  • Soil
  • Bricks
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

The majority of waste types are accepted, so whether you want to dispose of metals, plastic materials, timber or textiles, we can usually take your waste away.

The volume and materials you discard in the skip can vary according to which size skip you hired. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So to be able to dispose of garden soil and bricks, as an example, the biggest size container you will be allowed to hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?

There are a few materials which you will not be allowed to throw out in the skip. The reason for this is that some goods incorporate hazardous materials which may be harmful to the environment. They could also be damaging to human health, therefore they have to be disposed of separately under UK legislation.

Examples of the products which are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

If I require a skip on a road in Clare, will I need to have a permit?

Ideally, you should have the skip left on to a hard surface. For anyone who is carrying out a residential job, then the drive is going to be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. Having said that, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public land, you must have a permit from your local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be dropped on the street, grass verge or any other public property in Clare. If this is needed, we will request the license to be granted on your behalf. An additional fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

Do you deliver skips across Suffolk?

We offer a nationwide skip hire service by using a network of approved and fully licensed local companies. So whether you need skip hire in Clare, Needham Market, Saxmundham, Lowestoft or another area in Suffolk, we are able to assist.

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a huge container used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These bins are predominantly for industrial use but can be hired by household customers also. Having said that, you need a good amount of space since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger when compared to the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.

As a result of the size, roro containers can only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not suited to getting rid of concrete and bricks.

Who will deliver my skip?

We utilise a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire companies to supply skips to our clients in Clare and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner skip hire providers are verified and evaluated to make certain they match our expectations for price, service, recycling rates and reliability.

Can I stack up the waste in my skip?

It is very important never to overload your skip, as you risk being told to take off excess waste before it can be picked up. Whatever size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, since transporting an overloaded container can be unsafe, as waste could fall and lead to personal injury or damage to other people.

To avoid this problem, please ensure that you hire a size suitable for your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full and you have more waste to dispose of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.

What is the cost of skip hire in Clare?

The price of hiring a skip in Clare is determined by the size of skip you require. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you need a larger skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also increase if you need to have a skip positioned on the highway, because you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.

How quick can you deliver a skip in Clare?

If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the next day. In some instances, we will even give you a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed as part of the online order process.

How big is the mini skip?

The mini skip will be the most compact skip provided by skip firms and is good for small DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

What happens to the rubbish in the skip?

When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into different waste streams, like timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This ensures that as much of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

You can normally keep the skip for as many as 2 weeks from your delivery date. You are able to provide a chosen pick up date when you make your order. Alternatively, you can let us know once you have loaded the skip, and then we will arrange your collection. In most cases, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer over hectic times.

Other areas covered include Needham Market, Saxmundham, Lowestoft, Newmarket, Wickham Market, Haverhill, Brandon and Sudbury.
