Dollar Skip Hire FAQs

Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?

No, you can not put old or broken electrical waste items in a skip. This includes such things as laptops, cookers, washing machines, fridges and monitors. Electric objects can’t be disposed of in the skip as they can contain hazardous materials and components.

Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

You can normally have the skip for as many as 2 weeks from your delivery date. You may give a chosen pick up date at the time you place your order. Alternatively, you can let us know once you have loaded the skip, and we will organise your collection. Usually, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during busy times.

Is it possible to get a skip with a drop door?

Having a skip that has a drop down door helps make filling rubbish into it a lot easier. This is especially true with hefty waste materials such as dirt or concrete, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading up large bulky items like furniture a lot easier also.

The majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, but this may sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.

What is a builders skip?

The phrase builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The term stems from the fact that they are the most typical sizes that are ordered by builders and tradespeople.

These large containers are ideal for a wide variety of residential and business projects. These are the biggest skip sizes that you can use for weighty builders waste like top soil, stone and gravel.

Am I allowed to put all kinds of waste in a skip?

You may use a skip to throw out a variety of waste types. We are experienced in collecting and processing lots of items from construction work, garden landscaping and household clearances. A few examples of allowed waste materials include things like:

  • Furniture
  • Tree cuttings
  • Soil
  • Hardcore
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Cabinets and units

Many waste materials are usually allowed, and therefore whether you would like to throw out metals, plastic materials, timber or textiles, we can usually take your waste away.

The quantity and materials you discard in the skip may vary based on which size skip you ordered. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you need to discard soil and hardcore, as an example, the largest size you will be allowed to hire would be 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 discard in the skip. The reason for this is that these goods contain hazardous materials which may cause damage to the environment. They can even be damaging to human health, therefore they need to be discarded separately under UK laws.

Examples of the goods that are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC screens
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos

How do I order a skip in Dollar?

This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know if the skip will be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on council property (like the street). Next, pick the date you would like your skip to be delivered. Check your order and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. That’s it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Dollar on the day you have chosen.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?

It is usually best if you can be available when anyone delivers something to your home. That allows you to ensure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be located just where you need it.

The same applies for those who have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.

How big is a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest size delivered by skip companies and is designed for small DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Dollar?

To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work with a variety of local and national businesses. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we can provide customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.

Am I allowed to pile up the waste in my skip?

It is important to not overload your skip, as you risk being told to remove excessive waste prior to it being picked up. Irrespective of what size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, since moving an overloaded skip can be unsafe, as rubbish could fall and lead to injuries or damage to other people.

To prevent this problem, please ensure that you hire a size suitable for your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full and you have more waste to dispose of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.

What are the different skip sizes available?

Skips come in a selection of different sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is perfect for small residential projects.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a great choice for garage clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to undertake, the builder’s skip may be the best choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title indicates, these are the most popular sizes ordered by builders for building waste, such as soil and rubble. However they can equally well be hired for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also supply 10-16 cubic yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

If I want a skip on the road in Dollar, will I need to get a permit?

This will depend on where the skip will be located. You will only need a permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit when your skip is on private property, such as a driveway or on your company premises.

If you do have to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, and then we can make the required arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can have your skip on your own property, it will save you a few pounds.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large commercial scale skips that are used predominantly in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for businesses that generate significant quantities of waste materials.
