Gorleston-on-Sea Skip Hire FAQs

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?

A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a large skip that can be used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are primarily for commercial use but can be hired by domestic customers as well. However, you will need plenty of room as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger compared to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.

As a result of the size, roro skips can only be provided for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suited to disposing of concrete and rubble.

Should I be in when the skip will be delivered?

It is always a good idea to be in when anyone delivers anything to your home. That enables you to make sure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be dropped just where you want it.

The same thing goes if you have a company. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.

What types of waste can I put in a skip?

A skip can be hired to get rid of a variety of types of waste materials. We are used to picking up and handling numerous materials from building jobs, garden landscaping and property clean-ups. Examples of permitted waste products include things like:

  • Home furnishings
  • Hedge cuttings
  • Garden soil
  • Bricks
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Cabinets and units

Most waste materials are usually permitted, and therefore whether you would like to discard furniture, plastic materials, wood or fabric, we can usually take your waste away.

The quantity and things you throw into your skip will vary depending on which size skip you have chosen. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So to be able to get rid of garden soil and rubble, for example, the biggest size container you would be allowed to hire is the 8 yard skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?

There are some materials you are not allowed to dump in your skip. The reason behind this is that some goods incorporate hazardous components that may be damaging to the environment. They may also be dangerous to human health, so they have to be discarded separately within UK regulations.

Some examples of the products that are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer screens
  • Battery packs
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Gorleston-on-Sea?

In most situations, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you want your skip to be situated on land outside of your company or residence, you have got to receive authorisation from the local authority in Gorleston-on-Sea, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we will be glad to organise this for you, and so it’s one less issue to think about. The council does charge a fee for the road permit, and you should know before placing your order that obtaining the permit will often take up to two working days.

Will you deliver to other areas in Norfolk?

We offer a nationwide skip hire and recycling service using a network of approved and fully licensed local companies. So whether you want skip hire in Gorleston-on-Sea, Watton, Norwich, Diss or another area in Norfolk, we can assist.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The term builder’s skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. The label comes from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.

These big skips are suited to a multitude of residential and commercial projects. They are the largest size skips that you can use for hefty builders waste such as garden soil, rubble and concrete.

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

As we offer a national skip service, we utilise an extensive network of approved businesses. These range from small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental standards.

Am I allowed to stack up the waste in my skip?

It is vital to never overload a skip. You should not pass the level load line that is shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it is very dangerous to move. This means that when you overload your skip, you may be required to remove the excess rubbish. However safe you think the skip to be, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This is hazardous and is therefore not allowed.

How long will it take to get a skip in Gorleston-on-Sea?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We will normally give you a next day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, as to go on public property (like a road), you will have to get a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.

Due to several factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it to be delivered in a AM or PM slot.

What skip sizes do you supply?

We can offer a wide range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for modest DIY tasks and house clearances. A common option for larger jobs, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard skip.

For Gorleston-on-Sea companies which produce a large volume of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What will happen to the rubbish in the skip?

The rubbish in your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling facility. Here the contents will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into various waste materials, such as metal, cardboard, stone and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.

What size is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size delivered by skip companies and is ideal for small DIY jobs, garage 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 about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

How much does skip hire in Gorleston-on-Sea cost?

The price of getting a skip in Gorleston-on-Sea is determined by the size of skip you require. The cheapest skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you want to have a skip positioned on the road, as you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Am I allowed to put electrical products in my skip?

No, you can not throw old or unwanted electrical waste products in a skip. This can include items like computers, microwaves, washing machines, refrigerators and tv sets. These products can’t be disposed of in a skip as they can have dangerous materials and components.

As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.

How long can I hire a skip for?

You can usually keep a skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, you will have the option of providing a preferred collection day when making your order.

Otherwise, just tell us when you have finished loading up your skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the next working day.

It can take a little bit longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, however we will always endeavour to come as quickly as possible.

Is it possible to get a skip that has a drop down door?

Virtually all containers can be provided with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the bin, especially with heavy materials, such as dirt and gravel, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky items, like household furniture.
