Darlaston Skip Hire FAQs
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
Typically, you can keep a skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you do not need to hurry through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.
Do you deliver to other areas in West Midlands?
We provide a nationwide skip hire and recycling service through a network of verified and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Darlaston, Willenhall, Halesowen, Wolverhampton or another site in West Midlands, we are able to assist.
Where will my rubbish be taken to when the skip is collected?
The items in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer facility. Here the contents will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into numerous waste materials, like soil, cardboard, rubble and wood. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.

Can I dispose of all sorts of waste in the skip?
You are able to fill up the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly generated from garage clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include wood, dirt, concrete, hedge trimmings, household furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you throw in your skip depends on the size you have hired, as there is a weight restriction. For instance, in the event that you will be using the skip for heavy construction wastes such as bricks or dirt, the biggest size you would be able to hire is an 8 cubic yard.
Some materials should not be disposed of in your skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of large quantities of waste. In most cases, these type of skips are used for commercial purposes. However, domestic clients may also use them. You should take into account the space they occupy, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be used for lightweight waste such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of soil and stone.
Can I get rid of electrical items in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old or broken electrical waste items in your skip. This can include items like computers, cookers, tumble dryers, fridges and computer monitors. These objects can’t be discarded in your skip since they can have hazardous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
What is the size of a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most commonly supplied for building and demolition jobs. There are typically two different sizes that can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers which can be used to dispose of significant quantities of construction and demolition materials, like earth, rubble and rock.
Although labelled a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for a number of other domestic and business waste disposal jobs.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when your skip is being delivered, but it can help. Being home whenever the skip is delivered means you can make sure the delivery driver can be given full access and that your skip is located exactly where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is hired to a company premises, we will appreciate your support during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, for those who can’t be available at the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you place the order, and then we will organise things from there.
Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?
You should not fill a skip past the level load line. If you fill it up over the tip of this mark, it means that the skip is not safe and secure to move, and you could be asked to take off the excess waste before it can be picked up.
Who will deliver my skip?
As we offer a national skip service, we use a comprehensive network of verified businesses. These can vary from small family-run skip hire firms to national waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to guarantee they match our high customer service and environmental principles.
How can I order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you would like to hire. Let us know whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (such as the road). After that, select the day you would like the skip to get delivered. Check your order and make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Darlaston on the day you have chosen.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest skip offered by skip firms and is great for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms will offer a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Darlaston?
Normally, it will be possible to have a skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to get this done, you will need to have consent from your local council in Darlaston, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for the license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
Which skip sizes have a drop down door?
The vast majority of containers can be provided with a drop door, which makes them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the skip, especially with weighty materials, such as dirt and gravel, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, such as household furniture.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. In some instances, we will even give you a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed when going through the online order process.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Darlaston?
This depends upon the skip size you require and if you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the least expensive option. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in business settings.
