Fakenham Skip Hire FAQs
If I require a skip on a road in Fakenham, will I need to get a permit?
In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need your skip to be located on land outside of your business or home, you have got to get permission from your local council in Fakenham, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we will be happy to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less point to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the skip permit, plus you should be aware before ordering that getting the permit can often take up to two working days.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?
Using a skip which has a drop down door helps make filling rubbish into it so much easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste materials such as garden soil or rubble, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away large bulky objects like household furniture a lot easier as well.
The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop door, but this can sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the next day. In some instances, we will even provide a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed during the order process.
What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Fakenham?
This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip is going to be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or council property (like the road). After that, select the date you want the skip to be delivered. Check your order and make payment using our secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Fakenham on the day you have selected.
Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be there at the time it is delivered. Then you can be sure the lorry has full access and that the skip will be positioned precisely where you want it. The same applies if you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly if gates restrict access.
Having said that, when this isn’t achievable, you do not need to worry. Simply tell us when making your order, and then we will take care of everything.
What size skips can you offer?
We supply a full-range of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip great for small DIY jobs and household clearances. A common choice for larger jobs, renovations and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Fakenham businesses which have a big quantity of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What waste can I put in the skip?
Before hiring a skip, it is important to check that the kind of waste you wish to discard is actually 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 designed to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you can throw in your skip include household items like furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You may also use a skip to discard building and construction waste, such as old bricks, dirt, stone, metals and concrete.
Some examples of prohibited items include electronic products, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
What happens to the rubbish in the skip?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into the various waste materials, such as timber, metals, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How much does skip hire in Fakenham cost?
The price of getting a skip in Fakenham will depend on the size of skip you need. The least expensive option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general clearances. If you want a bigger skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also be more if you want to have the skip placed on the highway, since you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Can you deliver to other areas in Norfolk?
Along with delivering our range of skips to Fakenham, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Norfolk. Through our network of regional and national skip hire companies, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to Fakenham, Wymondham or Harleston, we have got you covered.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can generally hire the skip for up to 14 days from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, there is the option of offering a preferred collection day when making your order.
Alternatively, just let us know when you have finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in many cases, it will be the next working day.
It may take a little longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, but we will always try to be there as quickly as possible.
Am I allowed to fill the skip above the level load mark?
It is very important not to overload your skip, as you risk being required to take off surplus waste before it can be collected. Whatever size you order, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as moving an overloaded container can be unsafe, as waste could drop and lead to personal injury or damage to others.
To avoid this problem, please ensure that you hire a size suited to your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full but you have some additional waste to dispose of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
What size is a builder’s skip?
A builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These are the biggest skips used to get rid of substantial construction waste such as stone, bricks, rubble or clay.
A builders skip is perfect for a variety of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing out your shed, these big containers are often the most cost-effective option available.
Am I allowed to throw away electrical products in the skip?
Electronic products like televisions, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore should not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered products should be segregated from other materials. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge industrial scale skips used mainly in the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for businesses that produce large volumes of waste materials.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered by skip firms and is ideal for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some firms provide a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
