Eye Skip Hire FAQs

Do all skips come with a drop door?

If you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop door. This is great for disposing of hefty building and construction materials, as it can be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop-down door, although these are generally less common. The reason being these sizes are typically small enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our best to make sure a skip which has a drop door is provided.

How can I order a skip in Eye?

Hiring a skip in Eye with us is incredibly simple. Decide on the skip size you want and then enter a handful of details about when and where you would like the skip delivered. Then you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and then prepare to have your skip delivered on the date selected.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

Normally, you can keep a skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t need to hurry through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded before 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 pick it up as soon as possible.

Will a Eye skip hire company deliver my skip?

We make use of a network of both local and nationwide businesses to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These firms are comprehensively vetted to make sure they satisfy the high expectations we demand with regards to service, price and environmental performance.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Eye?

Our aim is to offer the most affordable skip hire service in Eye. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have a skip placed on the street or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the extra price of a skip permit.

Am I allowed to load the skip higher than the level load mark?

You should not fill up the skip past the level load mark. If you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means that your skip will not be safe and secure to transport, and you could be asked to remove the extra rubbish prior to it being picked up.

What size is a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest skip available from skip firms and is perfect for smaller DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in a skip?

Prior to hiring your skip, you must check that the sort of waste you want 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.

Examples of waste types you can put in a skip include household items like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use your skip to dispose of building and demolition waste, such as wood, dirt, stone, metals and concrete.

Some examples of restricted items include electronic items, tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently have to be disposed of separately from any general waste.

What is a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builders skip means the size of skip most often hired for building and demolition work. There are typically two sizes that can be classed 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 dispose of significant volumes of building and demolition materials, such as earth, concrete and rock.

Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, they can be used for many other household and commercial waste disposal tasks.

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

No, you don’t have to be home when we deliver your skip. Providing we are able to gain access to where you need it delivered, we will manage everything.

For those who are not going to be in, simply let us know any relevant delivery directions when you book the order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be positioned on a particular side of your drive. Alternatively, you may want to ensure that the skip does not prevent use of your garage.

No matter what the case might be, simply let us know when you place your order, and we will make sure the instructions will be passed on to the lorry driver.

How long does it take to get a skip in Eye?

If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the following day. In some instances, we will even provide a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery days are confirmed when going through the online order process.

Will you deliver to other areas in Suffolk?

We provide a UK wide skip hire and recycling service through a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Eye, Needham Market, Acton, Bungay or another location in Suffolk, we are able to assist.

What size is a roll-on roll-off container?

If you operate a company in Eye and want to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a perfect option. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that you can hire.

As the label implies, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike standard skips, which are lifted using chains.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Eye?

In most cases, it is possible to have a skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to do this, you must get consent from your local authority in Eye, which is known as a skip permit. We will order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for your permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to approve this.

What happens to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?

After you have finished filling your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer station in or local to Eye 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 possible.

Can I throw electronic items in the skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric products must be kept separate from general waste materials to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electronic goods such as washing machines, TVs, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.

Other areas covered include Needham Market, Acton, Bungay, Newmarket, Bury St Edmunds, Framlingham, Mildenhall and Saxmundham.
