Clay Cross Skip Hire FAQs

Is it ok to fill my skip higher than the level load mark?

It is very important not to overload a skip, as you run the risk of being required to take out excessive waste before it can be collected. Regardless of what size you hire, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, as transporting an overloaded container can be dangerous, as rubbish could drop and cause injuries or damage to other people.

To avoid this issue, please be sure to hire a size suited to your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full but you have further waste to get rid of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.

Will a skip hire company from Clay Cross deliver my skip?

A local skip company will likely deliver your skip in Clay Cross. We utilize a network of both regional and nationwide businesses to allow us to provide our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are comprehensively vetted to guarantee they fulfill the high standards we demand with regards to customer service, cost and environmental performance.

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

No, you don’t need to be at home when we deliver your skip. Providing we are able to access where you need it positioned, we can manage everything.

When you are not likely to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when placing the order. For instance, you may prefer the skip to be dropped on a particular area of the drive. Or you might want to be sure that the skip doesn’t obstruct access to your garage.

Whatever the case might be, let us know when you place your order, and then we will ensure the instructions are passed on to the delivery driver.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Clay Cross?

This is determined by the size you want and whether you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the least expensive choice. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in commercial settings.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

You can typically keep the skip for up to two weeks from the date of delivery. You are able to give a preferred collection day when you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can tell us when you have finished, and we will arrange your collection. Generally, this will be the following working day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer over busy periods.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. In some instances, we can even give you a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed when going through the online order process.

What size roll-on roll-off skips are available?

If you have a company in Clay Cross and need to get rid of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a great choice. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that can be hired.

As the name suggests, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike regular skips, that are picked up using chains.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

Having a skip with a drop door will make loading rubbish into the skip much easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste materials such as dirt and concrete, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up big bulky objects like pieces of furniture much easier also.

Most skips can be provided with a drop down door, although it will sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a drop door is required, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip?

If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste will get separated into a range of waste types, such as wood, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

How big is a mini skip?

When you have a small amount of waste to get rid of, a mini skip could be the perfect option. What size is known as a mini skip differs from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they provide.

2 cubic yards is probably the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. Cost is based on the particular size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are best for household tasks like small DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

What is classed as a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most often supplied for construction and demolition work. There are generally two skip sizes that can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to dispose of significant quantities of building and demolition waste, such as soil, rubble and rock.

Even though they are branded a builders skip, these can of course be used for multiple other household and commercial waste disposal tasks.

Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?

No, you can not dispose of old or unwanted electronic waste products in a skip. This includes things like laptops or computers, cookers, dishwashers, refrigerators and tv sets. Electronic objects can’t be discarded in a skip as they can include dangerous materials and components.

As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.

What types of waste materials can I put in a skip?

Your skip can be used to get rid of a variety of types of waste. We are experienced in collecting and processing numerous items produced from construction jobs, garden projects and property clearances. A few examples of permitted waste materials include:

  • Home furnishings
  • Garden trimmings
  • Garden soil
  • Stone
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Cabinets and units

The majority of waste materials are usually allowed, therefore whether you need to discard furniture, plastics, timber or clothing, we can normally take your rubbish away.

The quantity and things you throw in your skip may vary depending on which size skip you ordered. All skips have a weight limit for safety. So if you would like discard top soil and gravel, for example, the largest size you would be able to use is the 8 yard builders skip.

Are there any items which I can’t discard in the skip?

There are a few materials that you are not permitted to get rid of in the skip. The reason behind this is that some goods incorporate hazardous elements which may cause damage to the environment. They can also be damaging to human health, so they have to be disposed of separately under UK law.

Some of the goods that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • PC screens
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How do I hire a skip?

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Clay Cross?

If possible, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface. If you are carrying out a residential project, then your drive will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, when neither is available, the road or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public property, you must obtain a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be positioned on the road, grass verge or other public property in Clay Cross. If this is required, we will request the license to be granted for you. An additional cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.

What are the different skip sizes available?

We are able to offer a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip perfect for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A common choice for bigger tasks, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard skip.

For Clay Cross businesses which produce a large volume of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.
