Darley Dale Skip Hire FAQs
Can I pile up the waste in my skip?
It is very important not to overload your skip, as you run the risk of being told to take off excessive waste before it can be picked up. Regardless of the size you hire, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, because moving an overloaded bin can be unsafe, as rubbish could fall and lead to injury or damage to others.
To prevent this issue, please ensure that you order a size suitable for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full and you have further waste to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
Am I able to get a skip that has a drop down door?
Virtually all containers can be provided with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the bin, particularly with weighty materials, such as dirt and bricks, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load large and bulky objects, such as household furniture.
How do you hire a skip in Darley Dale?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you would like to hire. Tell us if the skip will be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or council property (such as the road). Next, select the date you want your skip to be delivered. Check your order and make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Darley Dale on the date you have selected.
How soon can you deliver a skip to Darley Dale?
We can in most cases deliver skips to Darley Dale the next working day when your order is made before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking platform will provide you with a number of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you would like a skip to arrive ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the largest containers used to get rid of substantial building and demolition waste materials such as stone, concrete, gravel or clay.
The builder’s skip is ideal for a variety of projects. If you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing the loft, these large skips tend to be the most affordable option available.
What waste materials can I put in the skip?
You are allowed to fill up the skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly generated from loft clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include timber, top soil, rubble, garden trimmings, household furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you throw in your skip will depend on which size you have ordered, as there is a weight restriction. For instance, when you are using a skip for heavy construction waste like bricks or top soil, the biggest size you can use is the 8 cubic yard.
Some materials should not be discarded in your skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
Usually, you can keep your skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
How much will skip hire in Darley Dale cost?
The price of getting a skip in Darley Dale will depend on the size of skip you want. The cheapest option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you want a larger skip, like an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The cost will also increase if you need to have your skip positioned on the road, as you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are perfect for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and broken toys to paving slabs and garden soil. Having a capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you needing to make numerous trips to the local recycling centre.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Darley Dale, you will have several options to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard container, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is excellent for small household clearances and DIY work.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most popular sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also means they are well suited for household tidy ups including large items such as furniture and beds.
We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people and businesses with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These sizes are only appropriate for light waste, so they can’t be used to get rid of garden soil or concrete.

Can you deliver to other areas in Derbyshire?
Certainly. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we can provide skips to residential and business customers throughout Derbyshire and elsewhere within the UK.
Can I throw away electronic items in my skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, as electronic items like old TVs, refrigerators, pcs and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly manner.
Will a Darley Dale skip hire company deliver my skip?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a variety of local and national businesses. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we can supply customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
Do I need to be at home when the skip will be delivered?
You don’t really need to be at your property when your skip is being delivered, but it does help. Being in when the skip is being delivered means that you can ensure the delivery driver is given complete access and that your skip will be dropped precisely where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is being hired to your business premises, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, for those who can’t be available for delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you book your order, and we will organise things from there.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Darley Dale?
If at all possible, you should have the skip left on to a hard surface. For anybody who is doing a domestic job, then your driveway will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. Having said that, when neither is available, the road or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public land, you must obtain a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be located on the street, grass verge or any other public property in Darley Dale. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be issued for you. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to transport huge quantities of waste. Predominantly, these skips are hired for industrial uses. However, residential clients can also use them. You will need to look at the area they will take up, as they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be hired for light-weight materials such as paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and concrete.
What will happen to the rubbish?
The rubbish in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station. Here the waste will be sorted by machinery and by hand into numerous waste materials, including soil, paper, hardcore and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to increase the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.
