Diss Skip Hire FAQs
Do all skips have a drop down door?
The vast majority of skips can be delivered with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the container, particularly with heavy materials, like soil and rubble, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, like furniture.
What size skips can you supply?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Diss, you will have various sizes to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for small household clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which 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 common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also means they are ideal for household tidy ups involving large objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These containers are only suitable for light waste materials, so they cannot be used to dispose of soil or stone.
To get more details about the different sizes offered, including measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Do I have to be home when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not need to be home when we are delivering the skip. So long as we are able to access where you need it delivered, we can manage it all.
In case you are not likely to be at home, simply let us have any relevant delivery directions when placing the order. For instance, you might prefer the skip to be positioned at a particular side of the driveway. Or you may need to ensure that the skip doesn’t block access to your garage.
No matter what the situation may be, let us know when ordering, and we will make sure your instructions are passed to the delivery driver.
Am I allowed to throw all kinds of rubbish in my skip?
You can use your skip to dispose of lots of different waste types. We are experienced in collecting and processing lots of materials produced from construction work, garden projects and home tidy-ups. Some examples of allowed waste products include things like:
- Home furniture
- Tree trimmings
- Concrete and bricks
- Bathroom sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Many waste types are allowed, so whether you would like to get rid of metals, plastics, timber or fabric, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The volume and waste types you discard in your skip may vary according to which size skip you have chosen. Skips have a weight limit for safety purposes. So if you wish to dispose of top soil and concrete, for example, the largest size container you would be permitted to use is the 8 cubic yard skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?
There are a few materials which you are not able to dispose of in the skip. The main reason for this is that these products incorporate hazardous elements which may damage the environment. They can even be hazardous to human health, therefore they must be discarded separately under UK regulations.
Some examples of the goods that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- PC monitors
- Battery packs
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can typically keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, you have the option of providing a preferred collection day when making your order.
Otherwise, simply let us know when you’ve finished loading up your skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in many cases, it will be the following working day.
It could take a little longer to pick up your skip over busy times, but we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.
How can I order a skip online?
We have built our booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to enter your address to check out all the different skip sizes we are able to supply in Diss. Pick the best size to meet your needs and provide us with the details of when and where you want your skip to be delivered. You then make payment with the secure payment platform, and we’ll send you an email to confirm the order as soon as your booking is done!
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Diss?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if your skip will be on your private property, like a drive or inside your company premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know during the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on private land, it will save you a few pounds.
Can I throw away electronic items in my skip?
Electronic products such as television sets, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore should not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical products must be separated from other materials. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your order before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery site, as failed delivery attempts can lead to a charge for a wasted trip.
Am I allowed to fill the skip above the top?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it unsafe to transport, and you will then be asked to empty any materials over the level load mark. This also means you cannot make use of sheets of timber, doors or another item, since this will increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty to ensure that containers aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure that you hire the correct sized skip to meet your requirements and get in touch if you are unsure which size you require. We would be glad to help.

How much waste will a builders skip hold?
As the name indicates, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most frequently supplied for building projects. There are generally two skip sizes that may be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to get rid of large volumes of building and demolition materials, such as soil, concrete and rock.
Although labelled a builders skip, these can be used for a number of other household and business waste disposal tasks.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip offered by skip companies and is ideal for small DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
What happens to the waste once the skip is collected?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into various waste streams, including wood, metals, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large industrial scale skips used primarily within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for businesses that produce large volumes of waste.
