Dronfield Skip Hire FAQs

Can I load up the skip above level load mark?

It is essential to never overfill the skip. You should not pass the level load mark indicated on the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it can be very dangerous to move. Which means that when you overfill your skip, you could be required to take away the excess rubbish. No matter how secure you believe the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be unsafe and is therefore prohibited.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Dronfield?

In most cases, it is possible to have your skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But in order to do this, you must have permission from your local authority in Dronfield, which is called a skip permit. We will arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for the permit, and it can sometimes take 24-2 days for them to authorise this.

Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?

You don’t have to be at home when your skip is delivered, but it can help. Being home when the skip arrives means that you can make sure the delivery driver can be given complete access and that your skip can be dropped exactly where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to company property, we will appreciate your help during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.

However, if you can’t be around for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you place your order, and we will arrange things from there.

What size skips can you offer?

We are able to supply a full-range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip perfect for modest DIY jobs and house clearances. A common choice for more substantial jobs, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

For Dronfield firms which have a significant quantity of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, since electrical items such as old televisions, cookers, pcs and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects have to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.

What size is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some domestic waste, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to take on numerous jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be positioned on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit.

Although most commonly chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.

What kinds of waste can I dispose of in a skip?

Your skip can be used to dispose of a variety of types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and processing numerous materials produced from construction jobs, garden projects and property tidy-ups. A few examples of allowed waste materials can include:

  • Home furniture
  • Hedge cuttings
  • Top soil
  • Bricks and rubble
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Cabinets and units

Most waste materials are permitted, so whether you wish to get rid of metals, plastic materials, wood or textiles, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The quantity and things you put into your skip can vary based on the size skip you have ordered. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you wish to get rid of top soil and rubble, for example, the largest size container you would be able to hire will be the 8 yard builders skip.

What type of materials am I not allowed to put in my skip?

There are a few items that you are not allowed to dispose of in the skip. The reason for this is that some items contain hazardous components which may be damaging to the environment. They can also be dangerous to human health, therefore they need to be discarded separately under UK regulations.

Some of the items which are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Battery packs
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Do you use local skip hire companies in Dronfield?

A local skip hire company will likely deliver your skip in Dronfield. We employ a network of both local and national providers to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are vetted to make certain they match the high standards we demand in terms of service, price and environmental performance.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

If you operate a business in Dronfield and wish to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a perfect option. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that can be hired.

As the name implies, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike standard skips, which are lifted by using chains.

Will the skip be supplied with a drop door?

In general, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, depending on size, availability and location. If you want a drop door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Having a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful if you are hiring a large builder’s skip, since it allows you to wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini and midi skips, since they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

You can usually hire your skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, there is the choice of providing a preferred collection time when making your order.

Otherwise, simply let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the next working day.

It can take a little bit longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, however we will always try to come as quickly as possible.

What happens to the rubbish?

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste will get segregated into a variety of waste types, which includes wood, soil and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
