Craven Arms Skip Hire FAQs

Where will the waste go when the skip is collected?

When you have finished filling your skip, we come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility in or local to Craven Arms where we sort the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

Can I dispose of electrical products in the skip?

Electrical objects including TVs, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore cannot be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electrical items must be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

Getting a skip with a drop down door will make filling rubbish into the skip a lot easier. This is especially the case with heavy materials like soil or stone, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away large bulky objects such as furniture much easier as well.

Most skip containers can be provided with a drop door, although this can sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a door is required, and we will do our very best to deliver this.

What is the process of ordering a skip in Craven Arms?

This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you would like to hire. Tell us if the skip shall be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on local authority property (such as the street). After that, select the date you need your skip to be delivered. Check your order details and then make payment with our secure online payment platform. That’s it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Craven Arms on the day you have selected.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Craven Arms?

This depends on the size you will need and if you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the cheapest option. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings.

If I need a skip on a road in Craven Arms, will I need to get a permit?

In most cases, it will be possible to get your skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to do this, you must get permission from your local authority in Craven Arms, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for the license, and it may sometimes take 24-2 days for them to approve this.

Can I load my skip higher than the side?

It is very important not to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being required to remove surplus waste before it can be picked up. No matter what size you hire, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, since transporting an overloaded skip can be dangerous, as rubbish could fall and cause personal injury or damage to other people.

To prevent this situation, please ensure that you hire a size suited to your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full and you have additional waste to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.

How many different skip sizes are there?

We can supply a full-range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip perfect for small DIY projects and household clearances. A popular option for bigger projects, renovations and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Craven Arms businesses which produce a large quantity of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do you deliver to other areas in Shropshire?

Certainly, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skips to locations across Shropshire, such as Craven Arms, Oswestry, Bridgnorth and Much Wenlock. So no matter where you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

Do I need to be home when the skip is delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be in when it is delivered. You can then be sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip can be situated precisely where you need it. The same applies for those who have a skip delivered to business property, especially if gates limit access.

However, if this isn’t achievable, you do not need to worry. Simply tell us when you are making your booking, and then we will handle the rest.

What things can I put in the skip?

Before hiring your skip, it is important to check that the type of waste you intend to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials must be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

A few examples of waste types you could put in your skip include home goods like furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use a skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, like old bricks, soil, rubble, metals and gravel.

Some examples of prohibited items include things like electronic items, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently have to be discarded separately from general rubbish.

Will a Craven Arms skip hire company deliver my skip?

We use a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire companies to supply skips to our customers in Craven Arms and the rest of the country. Each of our partner skip hire providers are verified and tested to make sure they meet our standards for price, service, recycling rates and reliability.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ensure your skip is delivered when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the very next day.

Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You will need to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will most likely incur a fee for the wasted journey.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

If you have a company in Craven Arms and need to get rid of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a great choice. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips that you can hire.

As the label indicates, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, in contrast to standard skips, that are lifted using chains.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are ideal for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.

They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and broken toys to paving blocks and concrete. Having a capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you needing to make numerous visits to your local recycling centre.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

You can usually keep the skip for as many as 2 weeks from the delivery date. You are able to give a chosen collection day when you place your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have finished, and then we will prepare your collection. Normally, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer over hectic periods.

What is a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often supplied for building and demolition work. There are generally two skip sizes that may be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips which can be used to get rid of significant volumes of construction and demolition waste, like soil, rubble and rock.

Although they are labelled a builders skip, they can of course be used for various other residential and commercial waste disposal jobs.

Other areas covered include Oswestry, Bridgnorth, Much Wenlock, Bishop’s Castle, Broseley, Church Stretton, Whitchurch and Wem.
