Dursley Skip Hire FAQs
Do you use local skip hire companies in Dursley?
As we offer a UK-wide waste management service, we utilise a diverse network of verified and approved companies. These can vary from small family-run skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to ensure they meet our high customer service and environmental expectations.
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
No, you cannot dispose of old or broken electronic waste items in a skip. This includes such things as printers, hobs, washing machines, refrigerators and computer monitors. These objects can’t be discarded in your skip as they can include hazardous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Dursley?
This depends on the skip size you want and whether you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the least expensive option. The most expensive and biggest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used mainly in industrial settings.

What size skips do you deliver?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Dursley, you have multiple options to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, also known as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for small household clearances and DIY tasks.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most popular sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also means they are well suited for household tidy ups involving bulky items such as furniture and beds.
We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even larger waste disposal requirements. These containers are only suited to light waste, so they cannot be hired to get rid of soil or concrete.
For further details about the different capacities available, including dimensions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
If I would like a skip on a road in Dursley, will I need a permit?
This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a permit when it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit when your skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or inside your business premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on your own land, it will save you a few pounds.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t have to be home when your skip will be delivered, but it can help. Being home whenever the skip is being delivered means you can make sure the lorry driver can be given full access and that the skip is placed exactly where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is hired to business property, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, for those who can’t be available during the time of delivery, don’t worry. We just ask that you tell us when you place the order, and we will organise everything from there.
How can I hire a skip online?
Ordering a skip shouldn’t be hard. That is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, enter in your address to look at the range of skip sizes we can deliver to Dursley. Choose the size you want to hire, and confirm whether it will be delivered on your own property. Type in your information and then make payment using our secure online payment platform.
As soon as your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with all your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
Is it possible to get a skip with a drop door?
Getting a skip which has a drop door will make loading rubbish into the skip much easier. This is especially the case with hefty materials like dirt and rubble, which can then be loaded directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make disposing of large bulky items such as pieces of furniture easier as well.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, however this can sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when making your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.
Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?
No, you can only pack your skip up to the level load line. Loading waste materials up over this line will make it unsafe to transport, and you could be told to remove the surplus waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you have a business in Dursley and need to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a great option. Available in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that are available.
As the name suggests, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, in contrast to normal skips, which are picked up using chains.
What will happen to the waste once the skip is collected?
Once you have finished filling your skip, we come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility either in or local to Dursley where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
Typically, you can have a skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you do not need to rush through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.
What sort of rubbish am I able to put in a skip?
Before you hire your skip, it is important to make sure that the kind of waste materials you need to discard is allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types you can throw in a skip include household goods like furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use your skip to get rid of building and construction rubbish, such as wood, dirt, rubble, metals and gravel.
Some examples of restricted items include electrical goods, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
The builders skip is probably the most common skip hired across the country. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builder’s skip is great for most building and demolition jobs, which is where the name originates from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the biggest option that can be used for hefty waste including dirt, concrete, stone and rubble.
When will my skip be delivered?
If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. Sometimes, we will even provide a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed as part of the online order process.
Can you deliver to other areas in Gloucestershire?
Yes, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skips to areas throughout Gloucestershire, including Dursley, Gloucester, Minchinhampton and Nailsworth. So regardless of where you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest skip delivered by skip firms and is perfect for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the price 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 won’t make any difference.
