Frome Skip Hire FAQs
Do you deliver skips across Somerset?
Certainly, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skips to areas throughout Somerset, such as Frome, Bruton, Dulverton and Ilminster. So no matter where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
After you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste recycling station in or local to Frome where we sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
Will a Frome skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in Frome. We work with a network of both regional and nationwide businesses to enable us to offer our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are vetted to be sure they fulfill the high expectations we demand regarding service, cost and environmental performance.
Am I able to have a skip with a drop down door?
Using a skip that has a drop door helps make loading rubbish into it much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste materials such as garden soil and concrete, which can then be loaded into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away large bulky objects like furniture a lot easier too.
Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, however it will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when making your online order if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to supply this.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, this will provide you with sufficient time to fill up the skip. However, if you do need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, if you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just tell us when you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are fantastic for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and old toys to paving blocks and garden soil. Having a volume of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make numerous trips to your local recycling centre.
If I need a skip on a road in Frome, will I need to get a permit?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want the skip to be placed on land outside of your company or house, you must obtain permission from your local council in Frome, which is called a permit. If necessary, we will gladly organise this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less point to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for the road permit, plus you should be aware before placing your order that getting the licence will often take up to two working days.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?
If you have a company in Frome and need to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers available.
As the name implies, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike regular skips, which are lifted using chains.
Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?
It is always a good idea to be available when anybody delivers anything to your property. You can then ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be positioned just where you need it.
The same applies if you have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most frequently supplied for building and construction work. There are usually two different skip sizes that can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that can be used to dispose of significant amounts of building and demolition materials, including garden soil, concrete and stone.
Although they are labelled a builders skip, these can be used for many other residential and commercial waste disposal jobs.
Am I allowed to put electrical products in the skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, because electronic items like old televisions, fridge freezers, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly manner.
How do I order a skip?

We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you have requested. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery area, as unsuccessful deliveries will result in a charge for a wasted journey.
What can I put in my skip?
Before you hire a skip, it is essential to check that the kind of waste materials you wish to get rid of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials need to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types it is possible to discard in your skip include home goods like furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You can also use a skip to dispose of building and construction waste, including bricks, soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Some examples of prohibited items include things like electrical items, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from any general rubbish.
Is it okay to fill the skip higher than the top?
You should not fill up the skip beyond the level load line. When you fill it over the tip of this level, it means that your skip is not secure to transport, and you can be asked to take off the excess waste prior to it being collected.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Frome?
This will depend on the skip size you need and if you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the lowest priced option. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings.
