Cotgrave Skip Hire

Below are a few of the typical questions we have received with regards to our skip hire and recycling services.

Cotgrave Skip Hire FAQs

Can I throw electronic products in my skip?

Unfortunately this is not allowed, because electrical items such as old TVs, freezers, pcs and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items need to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly way.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you complete your booking prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery site, as failed delivery attempts will lead to a charge for the wasted journey.

Where does the rubbish go once the skip is collected?

Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into different waste streams, like wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How do you order a skip in Cotgrave?

This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you wish to hire. Tell us if the skip shall be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on council property (like the street). Next, select the day you need your skip to be delivered. Check your order and make payment using our secure online payment platform. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to Cotgrave on the date you have chosen.

How many different skip sizes are there?

Our company offers a complete selection of skip capacities to household and commercial customers all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

Here are the various sized skips to choose from, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each size can hold:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags

  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
  • 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
  • 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
  • 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Cotgrave?

In most cases, it will be possible to get the skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to get this done, you will need to get approval from your local council in Cotgrave, which is known as a skip permit. We can organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for the permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to approve this.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be at home at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can make sure the lorry has full access and that the skip can be located precisely where you want it. The same is true for those who have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates restrict access.

Having said that, when this is not achievable, you do not need to be concerned. Simply let us know when you are placing your booking, and then we will handle everything.

Can I fill my skip higher than level load line?

It is essential to never overfill your skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is indicated along the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it becomes very dangerous to move. This means that if you overfill the skip, you could be asked to remove the excess rubbish. No matter how safe you believe the skip to be, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. That is hazardous and is not allowed.

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

If you manage a company in Cotgrave and wish to dispose of large volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips that can be hired.

As the label indicates, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, as opposed to normal skips, which are picked up by using chains.

What size is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to tackle many tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be situated on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.

Although most often hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is probably the most popular skip which is ordered in the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builders skip is ideal for most building projects, which is where the name stems from.

The 8 yd builder’s skip will be the biggest option that you can use for hefty waste like garden soil, concrete, rock and rubble.

Which skip sizes can have a door?

For anyone who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is ideal for disposing of hefty building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop down door, though they are less common. This is because these sizes are typically small enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our very best to ensure a skip which has a drop door is provided.

What types of waste can I put in a skip?

Prior to hiring your skip, you must make sure that the type of rubbish you wish to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.

Waste types you may discard in your skip include household items like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use your skip to dispose of building and demolition waste, including bricks, soil, rubble, metals and concrete.

Examples of restricted items include things like electronic products, tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be discarded separately from your general rubbish.
