Grantham Skip Hire FAQs
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you offer?
If you operate a company in Grantham and need to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container might be a great choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that can be hired.
As the name indicates, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike standard skips, which are picked up by using chains.
Can you deliver to other areas in Lincolnshire?
Yes, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skip sizes to locations throughout Lincolnshire, such as Grantham, North Hykeham, Scunthorpe and Sleaford. So wherever you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
Can I throw all sorts of rubbish in the skip?
Prior to ordering a skip, it is important to ensure that the kind of waste materials you wish to discard is allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials must be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you may put in a skip include home goods like furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use a skip to throw out building and demolition waste, such as bricks, dirt, rubble, metals and concrete.
Some examples of forbidden items include things like electrical products, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and therefore have to be disposed of separately from your general waste.
Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?
It usually is best if you can be in when anyone delivers anything to your property. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it.
The same thing applies for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, when it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Can I have a skip with a drop door?
In general, most skips can be provided with a drop door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you want a drop down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip that has a drop door is mainly helpful when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow rubbish directly into the skip. This is not so important for mini skips, as they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Grantham?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want the skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or home, you must receive authorisation from your local authority in Grantham, which is called a skip permit. If required, we would be happy to organise this for you, so it’s one less thing to think about. The council will charge a fee for your skip permit, and you should be aware before placing your order that obtaining the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Grantham?
The cost of hiring a skip in Grantham depends on the size of skip you need. The cheapest option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a larger skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The cost will also be more if you want to have your skip placed on the highway, since you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into the various waste materials, such as wood, metals, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What is a mini skip?
If you have a small quantity of waste to dispose of, the mini skip may be the ideal option. What size is described as a mini skip differs from business to business, according to what sizes they supply.
2 cubic yards is the most common size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to have a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. Cost is dependent on the actual size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for household tasks like small DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
Our regular hire term is a fortnight from your date of delivery. Having said that, at the time you order your skip, you can let us know a collection date that is ideal for you. Of course, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is loaded earlier than expected, let us know, and we will get it collected as soon as possible.
Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. However, it is important to keep in mind that this may not be possible during busier periods. Once collected, the skip will be transported to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed and sorted.
Can I throw away electronic products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects need to be kept separate from general waste to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This can include all electronic products like tumble dryers, monitors, kettles, computers and even hair straighteners.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will make sure your skip will be provided on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the following day.
Although we are not able to guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
It is important to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will often incur a charge for the wasted trip.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Grantham, you will have various options to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for small domestic clearances and DIY jobs.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also means they are ideal for household clearances including large objects like pieces of furniture and beds.
We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for those with even larger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only suitable for light materials, so they can not be used to dispose of soil or stone.
For additional information regarding the various sizes available, including dimensions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?
It is very important not to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being asked to remove excessive waste prior to it being collected. No matter what size you hire, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, as transporting an overloaded bin is hazardous, as waste could fall and cause injuries or damage to others.
To avoid this situation, please make sure you order a size suited to your waste removal needs. If your skip is full but you have additional rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
What is a builders skip?
As the name indicates, a builders skip means the size of skip most often hired for building work. There are typically two sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to dispose of substantial amounts of building and demolition materials, like dirt, concrete and rock.
Although branded a builders skip, these can of course be used for various other household and business waste disposal jobs.
