So whether you require a skip delivering in Ellesmere, Cleobury Mortimer or Shrewsbury, we have got you covered.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?

No, you do not need to be home when we deliver the skip. So long as we are able to gain access to the place you want it positioned, we are able to manage everything.

When you are not going to be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when placing your order. For instance, you may prefer the skip to be positioned at a particular side of the property. Or you may need to make sure the skip does not hinder entry to your garage.

Whatever the situation might be, tell us when ordering, and we will ensure the instructions are passed to the delivery driver.

Can I dispose of electronic products in the skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, because electrical products such as old televisions, fridges, computers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly manner.

Which skip sizes can have a drop down door?

If you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is perfect for getting rid of heavy building and demolition waste, as it can be walked in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop door, though these are less common. Simply because these sizes are typically low enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you want a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a container which has a drop door is supplied.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is regarded as the common skip that is used across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is perfect for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the label stems from.

The 8 yard builders skip will be the largest size which can be used for hefty waste matter like garden soil, concrete, rock and rubble.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you run a company in Ellesmere and need to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips available.

As the label implies, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike normal skips, which are picked up by using chains.

How big is the mini skip?

If you have a small quantity of waste to dispose of, the mini skip could be the perfect option. What size is referred to as a mini skip differs from company to company, determined by what sizes they have.

2 cubic yards is considered the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 cubic yard skip for their smallest option. Price is dependent on the particular size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are ideal for household work such as small DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

Can I throw all types of rubbish in the skip?

You are able to fill the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from house clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include wood, top soil, rubble, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you put in your skip would depend on the size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight limit. For example, if you are using the skip for heavy building wastes like stone or dirt, the maximum size you would be able to use is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials cannot be disposed of in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Ellesmere?

In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you would like your skip to be placed on land outside of your company or residence, you need to get authorisation from the local council in Ellesmere, which is called a skip permit. If required, we will be glad to organise this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the skip license, and you should know before booking that obtaining the licence will often take up to 2 working days.

Am I allowed to fill my skip above level load line?

It is important to not overload a skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take out excess waste before it can be picked up. Regardless of the size you order, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, as transporting an overloaded skip will be hazardous, as waste could drop and lead to personal injury or damage to other people.

To prevent this problem, please ensure you order a skip size appropriate for your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full but you have some further rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.

Where does my rubbish be taken to when the skip is picked up?

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into various waste streams, such as wood, metals and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the waste is recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

What skip sizes do you offer?

Skips are offered in a wide range of sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small domestic tasks.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yd is a great choice for shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial waste disposal job to undertake, a builder’s skip may be the most suitable choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title suggests, these are the most popular sizes hired by builders for construction waste, like clay and stone. But they can just as well be used for household rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also offer 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further details about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
