Clevedon Skip Hire FAQs
What sort of waste am I allowed to get rid of in a skip?
A skip may be used to dispose of many different types of waste materials. We are used to picking up and handling a multitude of materials produced from building work, garden landscaping and house clean-ups. Some examples of permitted waste types include:
- Pieces of furniture
- Garden cuttings
- Top soil
- Bricks and rubble
- Bathroom toilets and sinks
- Cabinets and units
Many waste types will be permitted, therefore whether you need to dispose of furniture, plastics, wood or old toys, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The quantity and materials you throw in the skip can vary based on which size skip you hired. All skips have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you want to discard garden soil and bricks, for example, the biggest size you would be able to use would be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Are there items which I can’t throw in the skip?
There are some items you are not permitted to dispose of in the skip. The main reason for this is that these goods include hazardous elements which could cause harm to the environment. They may also be damaging to human health, so they need to be discarded separately within UK laws.
A few of the products which are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas cylinders
- Computer screens
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Clevedon?
If at all possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface. When you are carrying out a domestic project, then your driveway is going to be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither is available, the road or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public land, you must obtain a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be positioned on the street, grass verge or any other public property in Clevedon. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be issued on your behalf. An extra fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
Do I have to be home when the skip is delivered?
It usually is a good idea to be there when anybody delivers anything to your property. You can then ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be located just where you need it.
The same thing goes for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
Who will deliver my skip?
Since we offer a national skip hire service, we use a comprehensive network of approved companies. These can include small family-run skip hire firms to nationwide waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental principles.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, this will give you sufficient time to fill up the skip. However, if you need a little more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, if you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just tell us when you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.
How many different skip sizes are there?
We are able to supply a wide selection of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for modest DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A popular choice for bigger tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Clevedon companies with a significant volume of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How much waste will a mini skip hold?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to dispose of some household rubbish, a mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to tackle numerous tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be placed on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most frequently hired by household customers, the mini skip can also tackle smaller commercial jobs.
Is it ok to stack up the waste in my skip?
No, you are only allowed to fill up your skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste materials up above this line makes it dangerous to transport, and you can be asked to take away the surplus waste before your skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and it can also make it overweight.
When will my skip be delivered?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We will normally give a next day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, because to go on public property (such as a road), you will have to get a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of many factors that could impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it to be delivered in a morning or afternoon slot.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large industrial scale skips used predominantly within the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for businesses that generate large quantities of waste materials.
What is classed as a builders skip?
The builders skip is the most frequent skip that is hired in the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is fantastic for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 yd builders skip is the biggest size which can be used for heavy waste including soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.
Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products must be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric powered products like cookers, monitors, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
The materials in the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer centre. Here the waste will be segregated by machinery and also by hand into numerous waste streams, such as soil, paper, concrete and timber. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.
Can I have a skip which has a drop down door?
If you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is designed for disposing of heavy building and construction waste, as it can be pushed into the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop down door, although they are more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are generally small enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our best to make sure a container which has a drop door is supplied.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Clevedon?
This depends upon the skip size you will need and if you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the least expensive option. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.
