Glastonbury Skip Hire FAQs
How big is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the common skip used in the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builders skip is ideal for most building and demolition jobs, which is where the name originates from.
The 8 yard builders skip will be the largest option that can be used for hefty waste such as dirt, concrete, rock and rubble.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Glastonbury?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you need the skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or home, you will have to secure permission from the local council in Glastonbury, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we would be glad to organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for your skip permit, and you should know before placing your order that securing the permit will often take up to two working days.
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Glastonbury. We utilize a network of both local and nationwide companies to enable us to offer our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are thoroughly assessed to make sure they match the high expectations we demand with regards to service, cost and environmental performance.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be home when the skip is delivered, but it can help. Being home when your skip arrives means that you can make sure the driver can be given full access and that the skip is positioned exactly where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is hired to business property, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, when you can’t be around during delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you place the order, and we will organise things from there.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large commercial size skips that are used primarily in the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for companies that produce significant amounts of waste.
How quick can you deliver a skip to Glastonbury?
We will ensure your skip is provided on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You should ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will most likely incur a charge for the wasted trip.
Am I able to put all types of waste in my skip?
Before hiring your skip, you must make sure that the type of waste you need to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials must be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you are able to put in a skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use your skip to dispose of building and construction waste, such as wood, top soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Some examples of forbidden items include electronic items, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently must be disposed of separately from general rubbish.

How much does skip hire in Glastonbury cost?
Our goal is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Glastonbury. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip that you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have a skip placed on the road or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the added cost of a skip permit.
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Electrical objects like televisions, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste and therefore should not be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric items need to be segregated from other waste. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly manner.
What skip sizes do you provide?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Glastonbury, you have multiple options to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard container, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is great for modest house clearances and DIY tasks.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most popular sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their large capacity also makes them suitable for household clearances involving bulky objects such as household furniture and beds.
We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only suitable for light materials, so they can not be hired to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
For more details about the different capacities available, such as dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?
Getting a skip with a drop down door will make filling rubbish into the skip so much easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste materials such as garden soil and stone, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of large bulky items like furniture a lot easier as well.
The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, however this may sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to provide this.
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are perfect for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and old toys to paving slabs and rubble. With a capacity of approximately 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make numerous visits to your local recycling centre.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
You can normally keep a skip for as many as 14 days from the delivery date. You may give a preferred pick up date at the time you make your order. Alternatively, you can let us know once you have finished, and we will plan the collection. Generally, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a little longer during hectic periods.
Am I allowed to fill the skip higher than the level load line?
It is essential never to overload a skip. You can not pass the level load mark that is shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it is very dangerous to move. Which means that when you overfill the skip, you may be asked to take off the excess waste. No matter how secure you think the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. That is hazardous and is not allowed.
What happens to the waste in my skip?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into a range of waste types, which includes stone, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!
