Gosport Skip Hire FAQs
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip?
When you have finished filling up your skip, we come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste recycling station in or local to Gosport where we will separate the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
How long will it take to get a skip in Gosport?
When you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the very next day. In some instances, we will even provide a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed when going through the order process.
Do you deliver skips across Hampshire?
Yes. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to supply skips to household and commercial customers throughout Hampshire and elsewhere in the UK.
Can I throw away electronic products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric products have to be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric goods such as washing machines, monitors, toasters, laptops and even hair straighteners.
How big is 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 great for small DIY jobs 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 furniture and old toys to paving blocks and bricks. Having a volume of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you needing to make multiple trips to your local recycling centre.
What is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is the most popular skip ordered across the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is fantastic for most building jobs, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 yd builder’s skip will be the biggest size which you can use for heavy waste materials such as soil, concrete, stone and gravel.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
Our normal hire period will be 2 weeks from your delivery date. However, at the time you book the skip, you can choose a collection date that is best for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is finished with sooner than anticipated, let us know, and we will get it removed at the earliest opportunity.
We can usually make collections within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this may not always be possible at busy periods. Once collected, your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Gosport?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Gosport, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you which sizes we offer in your location and how much each one costs to order. If the skip will be on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also have to be factored in.
What waste can I put in my skip?
This is among the most common questions people have about hiring a skip. The main thing to consider is that you may load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are so many types of rubbish that could result from garden work, construction work and property clearances.
Some of the most typical things which we collect in our skips include dirt, timber, hedge cuttings, cupboards, toilets, and various other household objects.
However, there are some items that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This consists of any electrical products (fridges and freezers, monitors and computers for example), car tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all considered hazardous waste, and so disposing of them must adhere to an entirely different process to make sure they do not cause damage to the environment.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
The roll-on roll-off skip, often known as a RORO, is a large container used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These containers are primarily for commercial use but can be hired by household clients too. However, you will need lots of space because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger than the average skip you will see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, RORO containers can only be provided for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not suited to getting rid of concrete and bricks.
Do I have to be home whenever the skip will be delivered?
No, you do not have to be at home when we deliver the skip. So long as we are able to access the place you need it positioned, we can take care of everything.
When you will not be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when placing the order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be dropped at a particular part of the driveway. Alternatively, you might want to ensure the skip does not obstruct use of your garage.
Whatever the case may be, let us know when you place your order, and then we will make sure your instructions are passed to the lorry driver.
Is it possible to get a skip which has a drop down door?
Nearly all containers can be supplied with a drop down door, which makes them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.
A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the container, especially with heavy materials, like dirt and rubble, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, like furniture.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Gosport?
If at all possible, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface. If you are doing a residential task, then a driveway will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, when neither is available, the road or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public land, you must have a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be located on the road, grass verge or other public property in Gosport. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be issued on your behalf. An additional cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.
What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Gosport?
This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip will be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on council property (like the road). After that, pick the day you would like your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment using our secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Gosport on the date you have selected.
Will a Gosport skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Gosport. We work with a network of both regional and national businesses to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are comprehensively vetted to be sure they satisfy the high expectations we demand in terms of customer service, price and environmental performance.
Am I allowed to load my skip above the side?
Unfortunately not. You can only fill the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste materials up over this line would make it unsafe to transport, and you could be asked to remove the extra waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and it can also make it overweight.
How many different skip sizes are available?
Skips are offered in a selection of sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is perfect for small domestic tasks.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold around 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a great choice for shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more significant rubbish disposal job to tackle, the builder’s skip might be the best option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label implies, these represent the most frequent sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, such as soil and stone. But they can just as well be used for domestic waste such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We can also offer 10-16 cubic yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For additional information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
