Droitwich Spa Skip Hire FAQs
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
Our normal hire term is 14 days from the date of delivery. However, at the time you book your skip, you can choose a pick up date that is best for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is loaded earlier than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it removed as soon as possible.
Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. But, it is important to keep in mind that this may not always be possible during busy times. Once collected, the waste will be taken to a local waste recycling centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Will a Droitwich Spa skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip firm will most likely deliver your skip in Droitwich Spa. We employ a network of both regional and nationwide businesses to allow us to provide our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These companies are fully vetted to guarantee they match the high expectations we require with regards to customer service, cost and environmental performance.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Droitwich Spa?
The price of getting a skip in Droitwich Spa will depend on the size of skip you require. The least expensive option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and clearances. If you need a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The cost will also increase if you need to have the skip positioned on the road, as you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Ordering a skip should not be difficult. That is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible.

Can you deliver to other areas in Worcestershire?
Yes. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we can supply skips to both domestic and business customers across Worcestershire and anywhere else in the UK.
How fast can you deliver a skip in Droitwich Spa?
If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. In some instances, we will even provide a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed when going through the order process.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
The contents of your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer station. Here the contents will be separated by machines and by hand into numerous waste streams, including metal, paper, concrete and timber. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.
Can I get a skip which has a drop door?
Typically, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, depending on size, availability and location. If you require a drop door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are choosing a big builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow waste materials straight into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, because they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are substantial industrial size skips that are used predominantly within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for businesses that generate large amounts of waste materials.
Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Droitwich Spa?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a permit if it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit when your skip is on your private property, such as a drive or within your business premises.
Should you need to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know during the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate your skip on your own property, you will save some money.
What size skips do you provide?
We can supply a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for modest DIY tasks and house clearances. A common option for larger sized tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Droitwich Spa firms which generate a significant quantity of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most frequently used for construction and demolition jobs. There are usually two different sizes which can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of significant quantities of building and demolition waste materials, such as earth, rubble and bricks.
Although branded a builder’s skip, they can be used for various other residential and business waste disposal jobs.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be at home when it is delivered. You can then make sure the lorry has full access and that the skip will be placed precisely where you want it. The same applies if you have a skip delivered to business premises, especially if gates limit access.
Having said that, when this is not feasible, you don’t have to be concerned. Just tell us when you are making your order, and we will take care of everything.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items must be kept separate from general waste to be recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electrical items like tumble dryers, monitors, toasters, computers and even hair straighteners.
Is it okay to pile up the waste in my skip?
You must not load your skip beyond the level load mark. If you fill it up over the tip of this level, it means your skip will not be safe to transport, and you may be asked to take off the excess rubbish before it can be collected.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact skip provided by skip companies and is great for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip firms offer you a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
What types of waste can I put in my skip?
Before ordering your skip, it is essential to make sure that the type of waste you wish to discard is allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types you are able to throw in your skip include home items like furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You can also use your skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, including timber, soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Examples of restricted items include electrical products, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from any general rubbish.
