Faringdon Skip Hire FAQs
What sort of rubbish am I able to dispose of in a skip?
You are allowed to throw a variety of waste types into your skip. This includes timber, ceramic tiles, metal or concrete from a house clearance. Plant and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden jobs are allowed too. Worktops and units from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in your skip.
There are, however, a few items that you are not allowed to put in a skip a result of the possible environmental or health risks they can trigger.
You can not get rid of your fridge, printer or old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things include hazardous materials in one type or another. They must be disposed of separately from your normal rubbish.
Should you require hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to arrange an independent service for this material. Feel free to email for further details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
Electronic items like TVs, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore can not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic objects should be segregated from other waste. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.
Can you deliver to other areas in Oxfordshire?
Yes, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skip sizes to locations throughout Oxfordshire, such as Faringdon, Watlington, Oxford and Thame. So wherever you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?
It is always best if you can be in when anybody delivers something to your property. You can then ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be located just where you need it.
The same goes if you have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, if it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip available from skip companies and is designed for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms will offer a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
How long will it take to get a skip in Faringdon?
If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. In some instances, we will even give you a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed when going through the online order process.
How much will skip hire in Faringdon cost?
This will depend on the skip size you want and if you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the least expensive option. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings.

What size is a builders skip?
The phrase builders skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The label comes from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are ideal for a multitude of household and industrial jobs. These are the biggest skip sizes which can be used for hefty builders waste including soil, stone and concrete.
Will a skip hire company from Faringdon deliver my skip?

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Faringdon?
Ideally, you should have the skip left on a hard surface. For anyone who is doing a household job, then your drive will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. However, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public property, you have got to obtain a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be located on a street, grass verge or any other public property in Faringdon. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be granted on your behalf. An extra cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
In general, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip with a drop door is primarily helpful if choosing a big builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, because they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What will happen to the waste in the skip?
After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Faringdon where we will separate the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip, often known as a RORO, is a large skip used to get rid of large quantities of rubbish. These containers are mainly for industrial use but can be hired by household customers as well. However, you need plenty of space because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger than the typical skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, these containers should only be hired for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and rubble.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We are able to provide a full-range of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for small DIY tasks and household clearances. A popular choice for more substantial tasks, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Faringdon businesses which produce a large quantity of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How long can I keep the skip for?
You can generally hire the skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, you have the option of providing a preferred collection date when making your order.
Alternatively, just tell us when you have finished with your skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the next working day.
It may take a little while longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, but we will always endeavour to come as quickly as possible.
Is it okay to load up the skip higher than level load mark?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it hazardous to move, and you will probably have to remove any materials higher than the level load mark. This also means you are unable to make use of sheets of wood, doors or another item, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to make sure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure to select the appropriate sized skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you are uncertain which size is best. We will be happy to help.
