Dulverton Skip Hire FAQs
How do I hire a skip?
Ordering a skip shouldn’t be hard. This is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, enter in your delivery postcode to look at all the different skips we are able to deliver to Dulverton. Choose which size you want to order, and confirm if it will be positioned on your own property. Type in your details and then make payment using our secure payment platform.
When your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with all of your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?
No, you can not put old electrical waste products in a skip. This includes items like computers, cookers, tumble dryers, freezers and television sets. Electronic products can’t be discarded in the skip since they can have hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.
What sort of rubbish am I able to get rid of in a skip?
Prior to hiring your skip, it is essential to make sure that the type of rubbish you intend to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types you can throw in a skip include home goods like furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use a skip to discard building and construction waste, including bricks, dirt, stone, metals and concrete.
Some examples of restricted items include electrical goods, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently have to be discarded separately from your general waste.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?
If you have a company in Dulverton and need to dispose of large volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container could be a perfect option. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the label suggests, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, in contrast to conventional skips, that are lifted by using chains.
Can you deliver to other areas in Somerset?
Indeed, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skips to locations throughout Somerset, including Dulverton, Shepton Mallet, Bruton and Wells. So wherever you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can in most cases have a skip for up to 2 weeks from the delivery date. It is possible to provide a chosen collection date at the time you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know once you have finished with the skip, and we will organise the collection. Generally, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer over hectic times.
How much will skip hire in Dulverton cost?
To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Dulverton, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display the skip sizes we provide in your location and how much each option costs to order. If the skip is going to be on the highway or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.
What is classed as being a builders skip?
The builders skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. They are the biggest skips that can be hired to discard substantial building and construction waste materials such as stone, concrete, rubble or soil.
A builder’s skip is great for a number of projects. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your bathroom or clearing the shed, these large skips tend to be the most affordable solution available.
Is it ok to pile up waste in my skip?
No, you must only fill the skip up to the level load line. Loading waste up above this line would make it dangerous to move, and you could be told to take away the excess waste before your skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be in on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can be sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip can be placed exactly where you want it. The same applies if you have a skip delivered to business premises, especially when gates restrict access.
Having said that, if that is not achievable, you don’t have to worry. Just let us know when you are placing your booking, and then we will handle everything.
Who will deliver my skip?
Since we provide a nationwide waste management service, we use a diverse network of approved businesses. These can range from small family-run skip hire businesses to national waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they satisfy our high customer service and environmental expectations.
What sizes do skips come in?
We can provide a full range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip best for modest DIY jobs and household clearances. A popular option for larger jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Dulverton companies which produce a significant volume of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What size is the mini skip?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some household waste, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to take on numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be placed on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.
Although most often hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.
If I want a skip on a road in Dulverton, will I need a permit?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you need the skip to be placed on land outside of your company or house, you will need to receive authorisation from your local authority in Dulverton, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we would gladly arrange this for you, so it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the skip permit, and you should be aware before booking that obtaining the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.
What happens to the rubbish?
After you have finished filling your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer station in or local to Dulverton where we segregate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
How long does it take to get a skip in Dulverton?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We will typically offer you a next day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip on private property, because to go on public property (for example a highway), you need to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it arriving in a AM or PM slot.
Do all skips have a drop door?
For anybody who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is designed for disposing of hefty building and demolition waste materials, as it can be walked into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop-down door, though they are more uncommon. This is because these sizes are typically low enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our very best to ensure a skip that has a drop door is delivered.
