How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can generally keep a skip for up to 14 days from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, you will have the option of providing a preferred collection day when placing your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the following working day.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Downham Market?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Downham Market, enter your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display the sizes we provide in your town and how much each one will cost to order. If the skip is going to be on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.
Will the skip have a drop door?
The majority of skip sizes can be delivered with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.
A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the bin, especially with weighty materials, such as soil and bricks, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, such as furniture.
Will a Downham Market skip hire company deliver my skip?
To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a wide range of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to offer customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Downham Market?
In most situations, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you need your skip to be located on land outside of your company or house, you must obtain authorisation from your local authority in Downham Market, which is called a permit. If necessary, we would gladly organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the road permit, and you should know before booking that obtaining the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.

What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?
The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a massive container that is used to dispose of large quantities of rubbish. These containers are predominantly for commercial use but can be hired by household customers too. However, you will want a lot of space because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger compared to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.
Due to the size, RORO containers should only be used for light materials such as plastics, wood and paper, so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and bricks.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
The items in the skip will be taken to the local waste recycling facility. Here the contents will be separated by machines and also by hand into different waste streams, like metal, cardboard, hardcore and wood. Processing the waste in this way helps to increase the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.
What size is the mini skip?
For those who have a small amount of waste to throw out, the mini skip could be the ideal choice. What size is described as a mini skip is different from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. Cost is based on the specific size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are fantastic for household work including small DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most commonly supplied for building and demolition jobs. There are typically two different sizes which can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that can be used to get rid of substantial amounts of construction and demolition materials, such as earth, concrete and rock.
Even though they are branded a builders skip, they can of course be used for various other household and commercial waste disposal tasks.
Am I able to throw away electrical products in the skip?
No, you can not throw old electrical waste products in a skip. This can include such things as computers, microwaves, tumble dryers, freezers and monitors. Electronic products can’t be discarded in your skip because they can contain dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.
What things can I put in the skip?
You can use a skip to throw out lots of different waste types. We are experienced in collecting and handling a multitude of items from building jobs, garden projects and house clearances. A few examples of permitted waste types include things like:
- Home furniture
- Hedge trimmings
- Bathroom suites
- Cabinets and units
Most waste types will be accepted, so whether you would like to throw out furniture, plastic materials, timber or textiles, we can usually take your waste away.
The volume and items you put in your skip will vary according to which size skip you have hired. Skips have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you need to dispose of soil and rubble, as an example, the largest size you would be able to use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?
There are some items you are not allowed to discard in your skip. The reason behind this is that these items contain hazardous elements which could be damaging to the environment. They may also be hazardous to human health, and so they need to be disposed of separately under UK laws.
Some examples of the things that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas canisters
- Computer monitors
How many different skip sizes are available?
We provide a complete selection of skip sizes to residential and business clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the different sized skips available, with a rough guide to how much rubbish each skip can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags

Can I fill up my skip above the level load mark?
It is important never to overfill your skip, as you run the risk of being required to take out excess waste prior to it being collected. Whatever size you hire, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, since moving an overloaded skip is unsafe, as rubbish could fall and lead to personal injury or damage to others.
To prevent this problem, please be sure you order a skip size suited to your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full but you have some further rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.
Do I need to be there when the skip will be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we deliver the skip. Providing we can access where you want it delivered, we are able to manage everything.
In case you are not going to be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when placing the order. For instance, you might want the skip to be located at a particular part of the driveway. Or you may want to ensure that the skip doesn’t block entry to your garage.
Whatever the case might be, simply let us know when ordering, and then we will ensure your instructions are passed on to the delivery driver.
