What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The term builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The label comes from the fact that they are the most common sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial skips are fantastic for an array of residential and business jobs. These are the biggest skips that can be used for heavy builders waste such as soil, stone and gravel.

Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?

Electric powered items such as tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore should not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered items should be separated from other waste. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly manner.

How much waste can a mini skip hold?

The mini skip will be the smallest size provided by skip firms and is ideal for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms provide a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

Can I load the skip above the top?

It is essential not to overfill the skip. You must not pass the level load mark shown on the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it can be very hazardous to move. Which means that when you overload the skip, you might be asked to take away the surplus waste. However secure you think the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This is dangerous and is therefore prohibited.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Egremont?

If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be issued for you. An extra charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
