Frinton-on-Sea Skip Hire FAQs

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

Usually, you can keep a skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you do not need to hurry 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 get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Frinton-on-Sea?

This depends on the skip size you need and if you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the least expensive option. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used primarily in business settings.

Should I be in when the skip will be delivered?

You don’t really need to be at your property when your skip is going to be delivered, however it will help. Being home when the skip is being delivered means you can make sure the lorry driver can be given full access and that the skip is placed precisely where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to business premises, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.

Having said that, if you can’t be available during the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you place the order, and then we will organise things from there.

Is it okay to load the skip above level load mark?

It is vital to never overfill a skip. You can not pass the level load line that is shown on the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it becomes very dangerous to transport. Which means that when you overfill your skip, you may be asked to take away the surplus rubbish. Regardless of how secure you think the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. That is dangerous and is prohibited.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Frinton-on-Sea?

We utilise a large network of both local and national skip hire businesses to supply skips to our customers in Frinton-on-Sea and the rest of the UK. All of our partner skip companies are approved and tested to make sure they satisfy our expectations for cost, service, recycling and reliability.

Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, as electronic items such as old televisions, freezers, computers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly way.

What things can I put in my skip?

It is possible to load the skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly generated from home clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, top soil, rubble, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you put in the skip will depend on the skip size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, when you are using a skip for heavy construction wastes such as concrete or top soil, the maximum size you can use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials should not be disposed of in the skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.

How much waste will fit in a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are perfect for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furnishings and old toys to paving blocks and concrete. With a capacity of approximately 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you having to make multiple visits to your local recycling centre.

How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a large skip that can be used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These bins are predominantly for industrial use but can be used by residential clients too. Having said that, you will require a lot of room as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger in comparison to the typical skip you will see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, these skips can only be used for light materials like plastics, wood and paper, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of soil and rubble.

Can you deliver to other areas in Essex?

In addition to delivering skips to Frinton-on-Sea, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Essex. Through our network of local and national skip hire and recycling companies, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Frinton-on-Sea, Chelmsford or Corringham, we have got you covered.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will make sure your skip is provided on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the next day.

Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will do our best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

It is important to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will normally incur a fee for the wasted trip.

What happens to the waste once the skip is picked up?

When you have finished filling up your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste recycling centre in or local to Frinton-on-Sea where we sort the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Frinton-on-Sea?

If at all possible, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. If you are carrying out a household job, then the drive is going to be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, if neither is available, the street or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public land, you will have to have a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Frinton-on-Sea. If this is required, we will request the license to be issued on your behalf. An additional fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

Do all skips have a drop door?

In general, almost all skips can be provided with a drop down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Having a skip that has a drop door is primarily helpful when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow your waste directly into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, as they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How big is a builders skip?

The builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These are the biggest containers that can be used to dispose of substantial building materials such as stone, concrete, rubble or soil.

A builder’s skip is ideal for a variety of projects. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing out the loft space, these big skips tend to be the most affordable choice available.

Other areas covered include Chelmsford, Corringham, West Mersea, Southend-on-Sea, Chipping Ongar, Brentwood, Hockley and Southminster.
