Earl Shilton Skip Hire FAQs
What types of rubbish can you dispose of in a skip?
Before ordering a skip, it is important to make sure that the kind of rubbish you need to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials must be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types it is possible to put in a skip include household items like furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use your skip to dispose of building and construction rubbish, such as bricks, top soil, stone, metals and gravel.
Examples of restricted items include electronic items, tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore have to be disposed of separately from any general rubbish.
Is it ok to fill up the skip higher than the top?
It is very important to not overfill your skip, as you risk being required to take out excessive waste before it can be picked up. Irrespective of what size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as moving an overloaded bin can be hazardous, as waste could drop and result in injuries or damage to other people.
To prevent this issue, please be sure to hire a size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full but you have further rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.
Do I need to be home whenever the skip is delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when the skip is delivered, however it can help. Being in when your skip is due for delivery means you can make sure the driver can be given complete access and that the skip can be located precisely where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is being delivered to business property, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
Even so, when you can’t be available during the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you book your order, and we will organise everything from there.

How quickly can you deliver a skip in Earl Shilton?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your booking prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we try to offer you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery spot, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can result in a fee for the wasted trip.
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can in most cases keep a skip for as long as 2 weeks from the delivery date. You can give a preferred pick up day when you make your order. Otherwise, you can let us know when you have finished, and we will prepare the collection. Normally, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during hectic periods.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container used to dispose of large volumes of waste. In most cases, these type of skips are used for business purposes. Having said that, domestic customers may also use them. You have to look at the space they will occupy, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they must only be hired for lightweight waste including paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of soil and rubble.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
Typically, almost all skips can be provided with a drop door, depending on the size, availability and location. If you want a drop down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Having a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful when hiring a large builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow your waste into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini and midi skips, because they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What will happen to the rubbish when the skip is collected?
Once you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling centre in or local to Earl Shilton where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are perfect for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them ideal for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and broken toys to paving blocks and rubble. With a total capacity of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you having to make numerous trips to the local recycling centre.
What is the cost of skip hire in Earl Shilton?
The price of hiring a skip in Earl Shilton depends on the size of skip you require. The lowest priced option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you want a bigger skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you need to have your skip on the road, because you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?
The term builders skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The term comes from the fact that they are the most common sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are perfect for numerous types of household and business tasks. These are the largest skips which you can use for weighty builders waste including soil, stone and bricks.
What different sizes do skips come in?
Skips come in a variety of different sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is ideal for small household projects.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold roughly 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a good choice for garden clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more substantial waste disposal job to sort out, a builder’s skip may be the most suitable choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label suggests, they are the most common sizes ordered by builders for building waste, like soil and hardcore. But they can equally well be hired for household waste such as old furniture or kitchen units.
We can also provide 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Earl Shilton?
Ideally, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. When you are carrying out a household job, then a driveway is going to be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither 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 council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be placed on a street, grass verge or other public property in Earl Shilton. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be issued on your behalf. An extra charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
