Below are a few of the frequently asked questions we have received about our skip hire and recycling service.
Daventry Skip Hire FAQs
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you run a business in Daventry and wish to get rid of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips that are available.
As the label implies, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to regular skips, which are picked up by using chains.
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to tackle many tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be situated on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most frequently hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.
When will my skip be delivered?
If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we will even provide a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed as part of the online order process.
Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot put old or broken electronic waste items in a skip. This includes items like printers, cookers, dishwashers, freezers and monitors. Electronic items can’t be thrown in a skip since they can contain dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
What happens to my waste once the skip is collected?
The materials in your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer facility. Here the waste will be segregated by machinery and also by hand into various waste materials, like metal, cardboard, concrete and wood. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
It is possible to throw a variety of waste into your skip. This includes timber, floor tiles, plastics or rubble from a household clearance. Plant and bush clippings, soil and stone from garden tasks are permitted also. Cupboards and worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be thrown in your skip.
However, there are some materials that you can’t put in a skip because of the possible environmental or health risks they may cause.
You cannot throw out your fridge, printer or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things incorporate hazardous elements in one form or another. They should be discarded separately from general rubbish.
If you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to arrange a separate service for this waste. Feel free to email for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
What is the cost of skip hire in Daventry?
The price of hiring a skip in Daventry depends on the size of skip you require. The cheapest option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also increase if you want to have the skip placed on the road, as you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Daventry?
In most cases, it will be possible to have a skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But to do this, you will need to have permission from your local council in Daventry, which is called a skip permit. We are able to order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council do charge a fee for the license, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
Am I allowed to stack up the waste in my skip?
No, you are only allowed to fill up the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking rubbish up over this line would make it dangerous to move, and you may be asked to take away the surplus waste before your skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or any other objects to raise the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.
How long can I hire the skip for?
You can typically keep your skip for as long as 14 days from the delivery date. It is possible to give a chosen pick up day at the time you place your order. Alternatively, you can let us know after you have finished, and then we will prepare the collection. Normally, this will be the following working day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer during hectic times.
Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?
It is always best if you can be there when anyone delivers anything to your home. You can then make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located exactly where you want it.
The same thing goes if you have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The phrase builders skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yd skip. The label comes from the fact that these are the most typical sizes that are hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are great for a wide variety of household and industrial jobs. These are the biggest sizes that you can use for heavy builders waste including soil, rubble and concrete.
Is it possible to have a skip with a drop door?
Generally speaking, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop door, depending on skip size, availability and location. If you need a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial when hiring a big builder’s skip, as it allows you to wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This is not so important for midi and mini skips, since they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
We can offer a full range of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip great for modest DIY projects and household clearances. A popular option for larger tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Daventry firms which generate a large volume of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.
