Below are a few of the common questions we get relating to our skip hire service.
Corsham Skip Hire FAQs
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Corsham?
Generally, it is possible to get a skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to do this, you have got to have approval from the local council in Corsham, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council do charge a fee for the permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
Am I allowed to load up my skip higher than level load line?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this makes it unsafe to transport, and you will then be asked to empty any rubbish over the level load line. This also means that you are not allowed to make use of sheets of wood, doors or another object, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal responsibility to make sure that containers are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure that you choose the correct size of skip for your needs and get in touch if you are unsure which size you need. We will be glad to help.
Do I need to be home when the skip will be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be there when anyone delivers something to your house. That allows you to make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be located just where you need it.
The same thing applies for those who have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
However, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
Who will deliver my skip?
We utilise a network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our clients in Corsham and the rest of the country. Our partner firms are verified and tested to make certain they meet our standards for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container that can be used to get rid of significant volumes of waste. In most cases, these type of skips are used for industrial uses. Having said that, domestic customers may also use them. It is essential to look at the space they take up, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be utilised for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and concrete.
Which skip sizes will have a drop door?
The majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the skip, particularly with weighty materials, such as dirt and bricks, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, like furniture.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
Our standard hire term will be 14 days from the date of delivery. However, at the time you book the skip, you can let us know a pick up date that is perfect for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if your skip is fully loaded sooner than anticipated, contact us, and we will collect it at the earliest opportunity.
Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. However, it is important to remember that this may not be possible at busier times. Once collected, the waste will be taken to a local waste transfer facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, a mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to tackle numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be positioned on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most commonly chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can even be used for small commercial jobs.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Corsham, you have numerous sizes to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is excellent for modest domestic clearances and DIY work.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most popular sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also means they are great for household tidy ups including bulky items like furniture and beds.
We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These sizes are only appropriate for light waste materials, so they cannot be used to get rid of soil or stone.
For further information about the different skip sizes offered, such as measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Am I allowed to throw electrical products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items need to be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electric items including tumble dryers, televisions, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.
How fast can you deliver a skip in Corsham?
We will ensure your skip is delivered when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You should make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will often incur a charge for the wasted journey.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip?
The items in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station. Here the waste will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into numerous waste streams, such as metal, plastics, stone and wood. Processing the waste in this manner helps to maximise the amount which 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.

How much does skip hire in Corsham cost?
Our goal is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Corsham. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip that you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have your skip positioned on the highway or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the added cost of the skip permit.
What is a builder’s skip?
A builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These will be the biggest containers that can be used to get rid of heavy building and demolition waste such as stone, bricks, rubble or dirt.
The builder’s skip is great for a variety of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing the garden shed, these substantial skips will often be the most cost-effective choice available.
What waste can I put in a skip?
This is amongst the most popular questions people have about skip hire. What is important to remember is that you can load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of rubbish that will result from garden work, construction work and property clearances.
Some of the most frequent things that we collect in skips include soil, wood, bush cuttings, kitchen cabinets, sinks, and various other household objects.
However, there are some things that you are not allowed to put in the skip. This consists of any electronic products (fridges, TVs and cookers for example), tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. These are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and therefore getting rid of them needs to comply with a completely different process to make sure they don’t cause damage to the environment.
