Desborough Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, because electrical products including old TVs, cookers, laptops and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.
What can I put in the skip?
Before getting a skip, it is important to make sure that the kind of waste you want to dispose of is allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you can discard in a skip include home items like pieces of furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use a skip to discard building and demolition rubbish, such as timber, dirt, rubble, metals and gravel.
Examples of prohibited items include things like electronic products, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials and therefore have to be discarded separately from your general waste.
How long can I keep a skip for?
You can typically keep a skip for as many as 14 days from your date of delivery. You are able to give a chosen pick up date when you make your order. Otherwise, you can let us know once you have loaded the skip, and then we will arrange the collection. Usually, this will be the following working day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer over busy periods.
Do you deliver skips across Northamptonshire?
Absolutely. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to offer skips to household and business customers throughout Northamptonshire and elsewhere within the UK.
Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?
No. You can only fill up your skip up to the level load line. Loading rubbish up over this line will make it unsafe to move, and you may be told to get rid of the extra waste before the skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.
What sizes do skips come in?
We offer a complete selection of skip sizes to domestic and business clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the various sized skips available, with a rough guide to the amount of rubbish each size can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
- 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

How do you order a skip?
Ordering a skip should not be hard. This is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible. First, type in your postcode to view all the different skips we are able to deliver to Desborough. Choose the size you wish to order, and confirm whether it is going to be located on your own property. Type in your details and then make payment using our secure payment platform.
After your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
When will my skip be delivered?
When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a date that suits you. We can normally give a next day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, because to be on public property (such as a highway), you need to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of several factors that may impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it to be delivered within a AM or PM slot.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Desborough?
Preferably, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface area. For anybody who is carrying out a domestic task, then your drive is going to be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, if neither is available, the road or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public property, you must obtain a permit from the local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be positioned on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Desborough. If this is needed, we will request the license to be issued on your behalf. An additional cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.
Do all skips have a drop door?
The majority of skip sizes can be provided with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the bin, particularly with weighty materials, such as dirt and bricks, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.
Will a Desborough skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in Desborough. We work with a network of both regional and national businesses to allow us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are fully vetted to ensure they match the high principles we require in terms of service, price and environmental performance.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are large industrial size skips used mainly in the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for companies that produce significant volumes of waste.
How much does skip hire in Desborough cost?
Our goal is to give you the lowest priced skip hire service in Desborough. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have a skip positioned on the street or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the added cost of the skip permit.
Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t need to be home when the skip is delivered, but it will help. Being in when the skip arrives means that you can ensure the lorry can be given full access and that your skip can be positioned precisely where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is being delivered to business property, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, when you can’t be available during the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you place the order, and then we will arrange things from there.
How big is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are great for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furniture and broken toys to paving blocks and soil. With a volume of approximately 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you having to make several visits to the local recycling centre.
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into various waste materials, like wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This means that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is probably the most frequent skip hired across the country. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builders skip is perfect for most building jobs, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 yd builders skip will be the largest option that you can use for hefty waste including garden soil, concrete, stone and rubble.
