Cricklade Skip Hire FAQs

How big is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge industrial size skips used primarily in the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for businesses that generate significant amounts of waste.

What will happen to the waste once the skip is collected?

Once you have finished with your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling station in or local to Cricklade where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Cricklade?

Our goal is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Cricklade. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have your skip positioned on the road or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the extra price of a skip permit.

Can I load up my skip above level load mark?

It is important not to overload a skip, as you risk being asked to take off excessive waste prior to it being picked up. No matter what size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, as moving an overloaded skip can be unsafe, as rubbish could fall and cause injuries or damage to others.

To avoid this problem, please ensure that you hire a skip size suitable for your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full but you have more waste to dispose of, we are happy to provide an exchange.

How soon can you deliver a skip in Cricklade?

We will make sure your skip will be provided on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.

Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

You will need to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will often incur a fee for the wasted journey.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is probably the most common skip used throughout the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builders skip is fantastic for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 yd builder’s skip will be the largest option that you can use for heavy waste materials like soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip will be the most compact size offered by skip firms and is ideal for small DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip firms offer a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

Can you deliver skips across Wiltshire?

Along with delivering our range of skips to Cricklade, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Wiltshire. Through our network of regional and national waste management companies, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Cricklade, Trowbridge or Amesbury, we have got you covered.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Cricklade?

This will depend on where the skip will be positioned. You will only require a permit when it is put on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit when your skip is on your private property, like a drive or inside your company premises.

If you need to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know during the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on your own property, it will save you some pounds.

Can I have a skip which has a drop down door?

The vast majority of containers can be provided with a drop down door, making them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.

Having a skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the skip, particularly with heavy materials, like soil and bricks, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load big and bulky items, such as household furniture.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

You can normally keep a skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, there is the option of providing a preferred collection date when placing your order.

Alternatively, just let us know when you have finished loading up your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.

It could take a little bit longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, however we will always try to come as quickly as possible.

Who will deliver my skip?

As we offer a nationwide waste management service, we use a diverse network of approved companies. These vary from small local skip hire businesses to national waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to guarantee they match our high customer service and environmental expectations.

Can I dispose of electronic items in the skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods have to be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electrical items like cookers, TVs, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.

What things can I put in the skip?

You are allowed to load your skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly generated from loft clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include timber, soil, concrete, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you throw in the skip would depend on the size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, in the event that you will be using your skip for heavy construction wastes including rubble or dirt, the maximum size you can use is the 8 yard skip.

Some materials cannot be discarded in the skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?

No, you do not have to be at home when we are delivering your skip. So long as we are able to access where you want it delivered, we are able to take care of everything.

If you are not likely to be in, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when placing your order. For example, you might need the skip to be positioned at a particular area of your driveway. Or you may need to be sure that the skip does not prevent access to your garage.

Whatever the case may be, tell us when ordering, and we will ensure your instructions are passed to the delivery driver.

Other areas covered include Trowbridge, Amesbury, Warminster, Tidworth, Westbury, Malmesbury, Ludgershall and Corsham.
