Dudley Skip Hire FAQs
What size is a mini skip?
When you have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, a mini skip could be the ideal option. What size is referred to as a mini skip varies from company to company, determined by what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is probably the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 yard container for their smallest option. Price depends on the particular size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for residential jobs like modest DIY projects and garden clean ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
Am I allowed to put electronic products in my skip?
Electronic products including television sets, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore should not be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric objects need to be segregated from other materials. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Dudley?
Ideally, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface. If you are carrying out a household project, then a driveway will be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. On the other hand, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public land, you must get a permit from the local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on a street, grass verge as well as other public property in Dudley. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be issued on your behalf. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.
What is the cost of skip hire in Dudley?
Our goal is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in Dudley. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have your skip located on the street or other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the additional cost of the skip permit.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
Skips are offered in a variety of different sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small household jobs.
Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a good option for garden clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
If you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to deal with, a builder’s skip may be the best choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label indicates, these are the most popular sizes hired by builders for building waste, such as clay and stone. However they can equally well be used for household rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen units.
We can also supply 10-16 yard containers and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more info on the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
Am I able to throw all sorts of waste in the skip?
You can fill the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly generated from garage clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, garden soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you throw in the skip depends on which size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, if you are using a skip for heavy construction wastes such as bricks or garden soil, the largest size you would be able to hire is the 8 cubic yard.
Some materials can not be disposed of in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.
Should I be in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t have to be at home when the skip is being delivered, however it will help. Being there when the skip is due for delivery means you can ensure the lorry driver can be given full access and that the skip will be located precisely where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to your business premises, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, if you can’t be around during the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you place the order, and we will arrange things from there.
What size roll-on roll-off skips do you offer?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large commercial size skips used predominantly in the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for organisations that produce large quantities of waste materials.
Will my skip come with a drop down door?
For anyone who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is great for disposing of hefty building and demolition materials, as it can be pushed in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop door, however these are more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip which has a drop door is supplied.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can normally have the skip for up to 2 weeks from your delivery date. You can provide a chosen collection day when you place your order. Alternatively, you can tell us once you have finished, and then we will organise the collection. In most cases, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take a bit longer over hectic periods.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip?
The contents of your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer facility. Here the contents will be sorted by machines and also by hand into different waste materials, including soil, paper, concrete and wood. Sorting the waste in this way helps to increase the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.
Am I allowed to pile up the waste in my skip?
You must not fill up a skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it up over the tip of this mark, it means your skip is not safe to move, and you may be asked to take off the excess waste prior to it being collected.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builders skip means the size of skip most often hired for building and construction projects. There are generally two different sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to get rid of substantial quantities of building and demolition waste materials, including dirt, concrete and rock.
Although they are branded a builders skip, they can be used for multiple other domestic and commercial waste disposal jobs.
