Below are a few of the common questions we get with regards to our skip hire and recycling service.
Cromer Skip Hire FAQs
What types of waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
Prior to ordering your skip, you must check that the sort of rubbish you intend to get rid of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials have to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you can throw in a skip include home items like furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use your skip to dispose of building and construction rubbish, including bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and gravel.
Some examples of prohibited items include things like electrical items, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently have to be disposed of separately from any general waste.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big industrial size skips used primarily within the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for organisations that generate large amounts of waste.
How much will skip hire in Cromer cost?
To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Cromer, insert your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display which sizes we provide in your area and how much each size will cost you to hire. If your skip is going to be on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
Our normal hire period will be a fortnight from your delivery date. Having said that, when you book the skip, you can tell us a pick up date that is best for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is full earlier than expected, let us know, and we will pick it up at the earliest opportunity.
We will usually complete collections within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to keep in mind that this is not always the case during busy periods. Once collected, the skip will be transported to your local waste transfer facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Cromer?
Since we offer a UK-wide waste management service, we use an extensive network of approved businesses. These can include small local skip hire businesses to national waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be in when anyone delivers anything to your property. You can then make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it.
The same applies for those who have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
What is the process of hiring a skip in Cromer?
We have built our online booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to enter your delivery address to see all the different skip sizes we are able to supply in Cromer. Pick the right size to meet your requirements and enter the details of where and when you want the skip to be delivered. Then you can make payment with the secure payment system, and we will send you an email to confirm the order as soon as your order is done!
What is a builders skip?
The builder’s skip is the most frequent skip used in the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is great for most building and demolition projects, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 yard builders skip will be the biggest size that you can use for hefty waste matter like dirt, concrete, stone and gravel.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
No, you can not throw old or unwanted electronic waste items in your skip. This includes things such as laptops, cookers, tumble dryers, fridges and monitors. Electrical objects can’t be disposed of in the skip because they can include hazardous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
How quickly can you deliver a skip in Cromer?
We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your booking prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we will normally have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver, we try to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery location, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will lead to a fee for the wasted journey.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
This site offers a whole range of skip sizes to residential and industrial customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the enormous 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it unsafe to transport, and you will be asked to empty any rubbish above the level load mark. This also means that you are unable to make use of sheets of wood, doors or any other item, since this will increase the size of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to ensure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure to hire the appropriate sized skip for your requirements and get in contact if you’re uncertain which size you need. We will be glad to help.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
When you have a small quantity of waste to throw out, the mini skip might be the ideal option. What size is called a mini skip varies from business to business, determined by what sizes they offer.
2 cubic yards is probably the most common size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to have a 3 yard container for their smallest option. The cost is dependent on the actual size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are best for domestic tasks like small DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you want it put on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Cromer?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a permit when it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit if your skip will be on your private property, such as a drive or on your company premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, and we can make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on your own land, it will save you some pounds.
Can you deliver skips across Norfolk?
Certainly. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we can deliver skips to both domestic and industrial customers throughout Norfolk and anywhere else in the UK.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?
The items in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling centre. Here the contents will be separated by machinery and by hand into numerous waste streams, including soil, plastics, stone and wood. Sorting the waste in this way helps to maximise the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
The vast majority of skip sizes can be provided with a drop door, which makes them easy to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the bin, especially with heavy materials, like dirt and rubble, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky items, like furniture.
