Great Malvern Skip Hire FAQs
Who will deliver my skip?
As we offer a UK-wide waste management service, we use an extensive network of verified and approved businesses. These can include small local skip hire firms to national waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.
How do you order a skip?
Hiring a skip in Great Malvern through us is very easy. Select the skip size you want and then input a handful of details about where and when you want your skip delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then arrange to get your skip delivered on the date selected.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is delivered?
It is always a good idea to be available when anyone delivers anything to your house. That enables you to ensure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be dropped precisely where you want it.
The same applies if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
What size skips will have a drop down door?
Using a skip with a drop door will make loading rubbish into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste like dirt or stone, which can then be loaded into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away big bulky items such as furniture a lot easier also.
Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, although this can sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.
Will you deliver skips across Worcestershire?
Yes. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we are able to supply skips to household and commercial customers throughout Worcestershire and anywhere else in the UK.
What can I put in the skip?
You are allowed to throw a variety of rubbish in the skip. This can include wood, bathroom tiles, plastics or concrete from a household clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, dirt and rock from garden jobs are allowed also. Dated cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in your skip.
However, there are some things that you are not allowed to put in a skip because of the potential ecological or health risk they could cause.
You can’t throw out your freezer, printer or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items consist of hazardous components in one type or another. They need to be disposed of separately from general waste.
If you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to schedule a separate collection for this material. Feel free to email us for further details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
Is it ok to load the skip higher than level load line?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it dangerous to transport, and you will be asked to remove any contents above the level load mark. This means you cannot use sheets of timber, doors or any other object, as this will increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal responsibility to make sure that skips aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure you choose the correct size of skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you are unsure which size is best. We would be glad to help.
What is the size of a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most often supplied for building jobs. There are typically two different sizes which can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to dispose of large volumes of building and demolition waste materials, such as soil, concrete and stone.
Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for multiple other household and business waste disposal jobs.
Am I able to throw electrical products in my skip?
Electric powered products like TVs, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore cannot be placed in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered items must be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest size delivered by skip companies and is good for smaller DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms will offer a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We will normally provide a next day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, since to go on public property (for example a highway), you need to gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.
Due to numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it turning up within a morning or afternoon slot.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Great Malvern?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Great Malvern, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you the skip sizes we offer in your area and how much each one will cost to order. If your skip is going on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you operate a company in Great Malvern and need to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the label suggests, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike standard skips, which are picked up by using chains.
How many different skip sizes are there?
We can provide a full range of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip ideal for modest DIY tasks and household clearances. A popular option for larger jobs, renovations and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Great Malvern firms which produce a big quantity of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Where does the rubbish be taken to once the skip is picked up?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the different waste materials, such as wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This makes sure that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Great Malvern?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need the skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or home, you will have to secure authorisation from the local authority in Great Malvern, which is called a permit. If necessary, we will gladly organise this on your behalf, and so it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for your skip license, and you should know before placing your order that getting the permit can often take up to 2 working days.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, that gives you sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, if you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just let us know once you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
