Below are a few of the frequently asked questions we receive with regards to our skip hire and recycling services.

Dawlish Skip Hire FAQs

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Dawlish?

In most cases, it will be possible to have a skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But in order to do this, you have got to have approval from your local authority in Dawlish, which is called a skip permit. We will order this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council will impose a fee for your permit, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can typically keep your skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of offering a preferred collection date when placing your order.

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

It can take a little bit longer to collect your skip during busy times, but we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.

Can I dispose of electronic items in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items have to be kept separate from general rubbish to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electrical products like cookers, televisions, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

Nearly all containers can be provided with a drop down door, making them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t 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 can do our very best to accommodate.

A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, like garden soil and gravel, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.

What waste can I put in my skip?

You are able to load the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from loft clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, dirt, stone, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.

What you put in the skip would depend on the size you have ordered, because there is a weight restriction. For example, if you are using a skip for heavy building waste like concrete or garden soil, the maximum size you can get is the 8 yard skip.

Some materials should not be discarded in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.

Is it ok to load the skip higher than level load mark?

It is essential never to overfill a skip. You can not pass the level load mark that is shown on the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it is very hazardous to transport. This means that when you overload your skip, you may be asked to take off the excess waste. Regardless of how safe you feel the skip to be, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. That is hazardous and is therefore prohibited.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

It usually is best if you can be in when anybody delivers anything to your home. That allows you to ensure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be located precisely where you need it.

The same applies if you have a company. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

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

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to dispose of significant volumes of waste materials. Primarily, these type of skips are used for industrial applications. However, residential customers can also use them. You have to take into account the space they will take up, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be used for light waste like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and stone.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip?

The contents of the skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer facility. Here the contents will be separated by machines and by hand into numerous waste streams, including metal, plastics, concrete and timber. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a variety of different sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small domestic jobs.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a great choice for shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more substantial waste disposal job to handle, the builder’s skip might be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label suggests, they are the most typical sizes ordered by builders for building waste, such as soil and stone. However they can equally well be hired for household rubbish such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

We also supply 10-16 yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional details about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the most compact skip offered by skip firms and is designed for small DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms offer you a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

The builders skip is the most popular skip which is used throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is great for most building tasks, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 yard builders skip is the largest option that you can use for heavy materials like soil, concrete, stone and rubble.

Other areas covered include Tiverton, Torquay, North Tawton, Lynton, Sidmouth, Exmouth, Great Torrington and Ottery St Mary.
