Coleford Skip Hire FAQs
Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Coleford?
Preferably, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. If you are carrying out a household job, then your driveway is going to be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public property, you will have to get a permit from your local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be positioned on a street, grass verge or any other public property in Coleford. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be issued on your behalf. An additional fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
Will a Coleford skip hire company deliver my skip?
We utilise a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our clients in Coleford and the rest of the country. Each of our partner firms are verified and evaluated to guarantee they satisfy our standards for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
Am I able to dispose of all kinds of rubbish in a skip?
Before ordering a skip, you must ensure that the sort of rubbish you need to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials have to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types it is possible to throw in a skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You can also use your skip to throw out building and construction waste, such as wood, top soil, rubble, metals and gravel.
Some examples of forbidden items include things like electrical goods, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently have to be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can in most cases deliver skips to Coleford the next working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking platform gives you various delivery dates to select from. So whether you need your skip to arrive ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
Am I able to get rid of electrical items in my skip?
Electrical products including television sets, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore can not be placed in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic products have to be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
Can I stack up the waste in my skip?
I’m afraid not. You must only pack your skip up to the level load line. Loading waste materials up over this line will make it unsafe to transport, and you could be asked to get rid of the extra waste before the skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or any other objects to raise the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Coleford?
This will depend on the skip size you require and whether you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced choice. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in business settings.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
You can typically keep the skip for up to a fortnight from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection is as convenient as possible, there is the choice of providing a preferred collection date when you make your order.
Alternatively, simply let us know when you have finished loading up your skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It can take a bit longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be home when we are delivering your skip. So long as we can gain access to where you want it located, we will take care of it all.
When you are not going to be in, just let us have any relevant delivery instructions when placing the order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be located at a particular area of your driveway. Or you may want to ensure that the skip does not obstruct entry to your garage.
No matter what the situation may be, simply tell us when ordering, and then we will ensure your directions will be passed to the lorry driver.
What is classed as being a builders skip?
The builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. They are the largest containers used to discard heavy construction materials such as stone, bricks, gravel or garden soil.
A builder’s skip is great for a variety of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning the attic, these substantial containers are usually the most cost-effective choice available.
Do you deliver to other areas in Gloucestershire?
Yes, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver skips to areas throughout Gloucestershire, including Coleford, Tetbury, Winchcombe and Wotton-under-Edge. So wherever you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact size offered by skip firms and is ideal for smaller DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some firms offer you a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
What happens to the rubbish when the skip is collected?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into a variety of waste streams, such as timber, soil and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Do all skips have a drop door?
Generally, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you require a drop down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip that has a drop door is mainly beneficial if you are choosing a large builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow your waste into the skip. This is not so important for midi and mini skips, as they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How many different skip sizes are there?
Our company offers a full selection of skip sizes to domestic and business clients all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the different skip sizes on offer, with a rough guide to how much waste each size can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you offer?
If you manage a business in Coleford and want to dispose of large quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that can be hired.
As the name indicates, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike standard skips, that are lifted using chains.
