Dunstable Skip Hire FAQs
Can I dispose of electrical items in the skip?
Electrical objects including tv sets, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste stream and so should not be placed in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical goods must be segregated from other waste. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly way.
Can I load the skip higher than level load line?
You must not fill up the skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means that your skip is not safe and secure to move, and you can be asked to remove the extra rubbish before it can be picked up.
Can you deliver to other areas in Bedfordshire?
We provide a UK wide skip hire service by using a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you would like skip hire in Dunstable, Luton, Leighton Buzzard, Sandy or any other site in Bedfordshire, we can help.
How long will it take to get a skip in Dunstable?
We can typically supply skips to Dunstable the next working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking platform offers you a variety of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like a skip delivered asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be there when anyone delivers something to your house. That allows you to make sure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it.
The same thing applies for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, if it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.
Will a skip hire company from Dunstable deliver my skip?
A local skip firm will most likely deliver your skip in Dunstable. We work with a network of both local and nationwide providers to enable us to offer our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are assessed to ensure they fulfill the high standards we demand when it comes to service, price and environmental performance.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Dunstable?
Our goal is to provide the cheapest skip hire service in Dunstable. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have your skip located on the street or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of a skip permit.
Am I allowed to dispose of all sorts of rubbish in my skip?
Your skip can be used to get rid of lots of different types of waste. We are used to picking up and handling a multitude of materials generated from construction jobs, garden projects and home tidy-ups. Examples of allowed waste types include things like:
- Pieces of furniture
- Tree trimmings
- Top soil
- Concrete and bricks
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Cabinets and units
Most waste materials are accepted, and so whether you need to discard metals, plastic materials, wood or textiles, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The volume and waste types you put in your skip may vary based on which size skip you have chosen. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you want to dispose of top soil and rubble, for example, the biggest size you would be permitted to hire is the 8 yard builders skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?
There are several items that you will not be permitted to discard in your skip. The reason behind this is that these items include hazardous materials which could be harmful to the environment. They may also be damaging to human health, therefore they must be disposed of separately within UK law.
A few of the items that are restricted include:
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas canisters
- PC monitors
What size skips can you provide?
We can provide a full-range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip excellent for small DIY tasks and house clearances. A popular option for larger tasks, renovations and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Dunstable companies which produce a significant amount of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

If I would like a skip on the road in Dunstable, will I need to have a permit?
If at all possible, you should have the skip left on to a hard surface. When you are carrying out a domestic project, then the driveway will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you have got to have a permit from your local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be dropped on a road, grass verge or any other public property in Dunstable. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be issued on your behalf. An additional fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
Our regular hire time frame will be 2 weeks from your delivery date. However, when you order your skip, you can tell us a pick up date that is best for you. Of course, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if the skip is full sooner than expected, contact us, and we will get it removed as soon as possible.
We can usually complete collections within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to remember that this may not be possible at busier times. Once collected, your skip will be taken to your local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed and sorted.
What is classed as being a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most frequently supplied for construction and demolition work. There are generally two different sizes which can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of substantial volumes of building and demolition waste materials, such as soil, concrete and rock.
Even though they are branded a builders skip, these can of course be used for various other household and industrial waste disposal tasks.
Can I have a skip with a drop down door?
Having a skip that has a drop door makes filling waste into it so much easier. This is especially true with heavy waste such as dirt and stone, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading big bulky items like household furniture easier too.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, however it will sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a door is required, and we will do our very best to provide this.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to transport significant amounts of waste. In the majority of cases, these type of skips are hired for business purposes. However, domestic clients can also order them. It is essential to think about the space they occupy, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be hired for lightweight waste like plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and stone.
How do you hire a skip online?
Ordering a skip in Dunstable with us is very straightforward. Decide on the skip size you want and enter a couple of details about when and where you need the skip delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and schedule to get your skip delivered.
Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?
The items in the skip will be taken to the local waste recycling centre. Here the contents will be segregated by machinery and also by hand into different waste materials, like soil, plastics, hardcore and wood. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact skip delivered by skip companies and is ideal for smaller DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some companies offer a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
