Corby Skip Hire FAQs
Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not need to be home when we deliver the skip. As long as we are able to access the place you want it positioned, we can take care of everything.
In case you are not likely to be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you book the order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be dropped at a particular side of the driveway. Alternatively, you might want to ensure that the skip does not hinder entry to your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, tell us when you place your order, and then we will ensure the instructions are passed to the delivery driver.
Am I able to throw electrical products in my skip?
Electric powered products such as televisions, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore can not be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered objects have to be separated from other waste. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
Skips are available in a wide range of sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small household tasks.
The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a fantastic option for garden clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
If you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to take on, the builder’s skip may be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name indicates, they are the most common sizes used by builders for construction waste, including clay and stone. But they can just as well be used for household rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We can also supply 10-16 yard skips and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For more info on all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
How long will it take to get a skip in Corby?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a day that best suits you. We can normally offer you a following day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, as to be on public property (such as a street), you will need to get a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it to be delivered in a morning or afternoon slot.
Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Corby?
Usually, it is possible to get a skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But in order to do this, you must have approval from your local council in Corby, which is known as a skip permit. We can order this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council will charge a fee for this license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.
How long can I hire a skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, that provides you with sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you need a little more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, in the event you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just contact us when you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.
What will happen to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get segregated into various waste types, such as wood, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Will a skip hire company from Corby deliver my skip?
Since we provide a nationwide waste management service, we utilise a diverse network of approved businesses. These vary from small local skip hire companies to national waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental principles.
What types of waste can I put in a skip?
You can fill your skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly generated from house clearances, building work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include timber, dirt, bricks, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in the skip would depend on the size you have hired, as there is a weight limit. For example, when you will be using the skip for heavy construction waste like rubble or dirt, the biggest size you would be able to hire is the 8 yard skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in the skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are ideal for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and old baby toys to paving blocks and garden soil. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you needing to make multiple visits to your local recycling centre.
Will you deliver to other areas in Northamptonshire?
Absolutely. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we are able to supply skips to both domestic and commercial customers across Northamptonshire and anywhere else in the UK.
Will the skip have a drop down door?
Virtually all containers can be supplied with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the container, especially with weighty materials, like dirt and gravel, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, like household furniture.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Corby?
Our goal is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Corby. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip that you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you wish to have the skip positioned on the road or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the added price of the skip permit.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big industrial size skips used predominantly in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for companies that produce large quantities of waste.
How do you order a skip?
Hiring a skip shouldn’t be difficult. That is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible. First, type in your postcode to see the range of skips we can deliver to Corby. Choose which size you want to hire, and confirm if it will be delivered on private property. Type in your information and make payment using our secure online payment platform.
When your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
How big is a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most often supplied for building jobs. There are generally two sizes that can be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to dispose of significant volumes of construction and demolition materials, including soil, concrete and bricks.
Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, these can be used for many other household and business waste disposal jobs.
Is it ok to load the skip higher than the side?
I’m afraid not. You must only pack your skip up to the level load mark. Piling rubbish up above this line makes it dangerous to move, and you might be told to take off the extra waste before your skip can be removed. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and can also make it overweight.
Other areas covered include Irthlingborough, Higham Ferrers, Kettering, Rushden, Burton Latimer, Wellingborough, Oundle and Towcester.
