Exmouth Skip Hire FAQs
Do you deliver skips across Devon?
We offer a nationwide skip hire and recycling service using a network of verified and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Exmouth, Ilfracombe, Salcombe, Chagford or any other area in Devon, we are able to help.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
Generally, you can have your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you do not need to rush through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.
Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
No, you can not dispose of old or broken electrical waste products in your skip. This can include items like laptops or computers, microwaves, tumble dryers, freezers and computer monitors. Electric items can’t be thrown in the skip since they can include dangerous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into various waste types, which includes stone, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you operate a company in Exmouth and wish to get rid of large volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a perfect option. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the name suggests, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike standard skips, that are lifted by using chains.
How much will skip hire in Exmouth cost?
The price of hiring a skip in Exmouth 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 projects and general clearances. If you require a bigger skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also increase if you need to have a skip positioned on the road, because you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
What is classed as a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most often hired for construction work. There are generally two different skip sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to get rid of significant volumes of construction and demolition materials, including soil, rubble and stone.
Although they are branded a builders skip, they can of course be used for various other domestic and commercial waste disposal jobs.
Can I fill the skip above the top?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this makes it unsafe to move, and you may be asked to empty any items over the level load mark. This means that you can not use sheets of wood, doors or some other item, as this will increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty of care to ensure that containers aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure you select the correct sized skip for your requirements and get in contact if you are not sure which size you need. We will be glad to help.
Am I able to have a skip that has a drop down door?
Generally speaking, most skips can be provided with a hinged door, depending on the size, availability and area. If you need a drop door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip with a drop door is primarily useful when hiring a big builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow your waste directly into the skip. This isn’t so important for midi and mini skips, since they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Exmouth, you will have numerous options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest house clearances and DIY jobs.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their substantial capacity also makes them perfect for household clearances including large items like furniture and beds.
We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for anyone with even larger waste disposal requirements. These sizes are only suited to lightweight waste materials, so they cannot be hired to get rid of soil or stone.
For additional information about the different skip sizes available, including measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Exmouth?
In most cases, it is possible to get the skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But in order to do this, you need to have permission from your local council in Exmouth, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for this permit, and it can sometimes take 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
Am I able to dispose of all sorts of rubbish in my skip?
Prior to hiring your skip, it is essential to make sure that the sort of waste you intend to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some products 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.
Waste types you can put in a skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use a skip to discard building and construction waste, like timber, soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Some examples of forbidden items include electrical goods, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and therefore must be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
How can I order a skip in Exmouth?
Hiring a skip should not be difficult. That is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, type in your postcode to look at all the different skips we can deliver to Exmouth. Pick the size you want to hire, and confirm whether it will be located on your own property. Type in your details and make payment using our secure online payment platform.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be in on the day the skip is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip is placed precisely where you want it. The same is true when you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially when gates restrict access.
Having said that, when this is not achievable, you don’t have to worry. Simply let us know when you are making your order, and then we will handle everything.
Will a skip hire company from Exmouth deliver my skip?

These businesses are comprehensively assessed to guarantee they meet the high standards we demand with regards to customer service, cost and environmental performance.
When will my skip be delivered?
When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we will even give you a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed as part of the online order process.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are ideal for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furnishings and old baby toys to paving blocks and garden soil. Having a volume of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make several journeys to the local recycling centre.
