For more info about our choice of skips, such as dimensions and the waste they can be used for, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

What size is a mini skip?

If you have a small quantity of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip might be the perfect choice. What size is called a mini skip differs from company to company, based on what sizes they supply.

2 cubic yards is the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. Cost is dependent on the actual size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are perfect for residential jobs including modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

Can you deliver to other areas in Norfolk?

Along with delivering skips and containers to Great Yarmouth, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Norfolk. Through our network of local and national skip businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to Great Yarmouth, King’s Lynn or Gorleston-on-Sea, we have got it covered.

Can I get a skip with a drop down door?

For anybody who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is great for getting rid of hefty building and construction waste materials, as it can be pushed into the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop-down door, although these are generally less common. Simply because these sizes are typically low enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our very best to ensure a skip that has a drop door is supplied.

What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in a skip?

You can throw a variety of waste types in the skip. This can include wood, bathroom tiles, metal or bricks from a household clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, dirt and rock from garden jobs are permitted also. Worktops and units from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be discarded in your skip.

However, there are some things that you are not allowed to put in a skip a result of the potential ecological or health risk they could trigger.

You cannot get rid of your fridge, computer monitor or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things incorporate hazardous materials in one kind or another. They should be discarded separately from your general waste.

If you require hazardous waste removal, we may be able to organise an independent collection for this material. Please email for more information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?

It usually is best if you can be available when anybody delivers anything to your home. You can then ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be located exactly where you need it.

The same goes for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you complete your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver, we endeavour to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery site, as failed delivery attempts can lead to a charge for the wasted trip.

Is it okay to fill my skip above the top?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it unsafe to move, and you will then have to empty any items over the level load mark. This also means you are not allowed to make use of sheets of wood, doors or another item, as this will increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty to ensure that skips are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.

Please be sure you hire the correct size of skip for your needs and get in contact if you’re unsure which size is best. We will be happy to help.

Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?

When you have finished filling your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility in or local to Great Yarmouth where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

What is the cost of skip hire in Great Yarmouth?

Our aim is to provide you with the lowest priced skip hire service in Great Yarmouth. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip that you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have your skip located on the highway or other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the added expense of a skip permit.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Great Yarmouth?

If possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface. For anybody who is doing a household project, then your driveway will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. On the other hand, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public land, you must have a permit from your local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be positioned on a street, grass verge or any other public property in Great Yarmouth. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be granted for you. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

Typically, you can keep the skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you don’t need to hurry through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.

Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?

Electric powered items such as TVs, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore cannot be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric objects should be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Great Yarmouth?

A local skip firm will most likely deliver your skip in Great Yarmouth. We employ a network of both local and nationwide companies to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These firms are fully vetted to make sure they satisfy the high standards we require with regards to service, price and environmental performance.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

If you have a business in Great Yarmouth and need to get rid of substantial quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container might be a great option. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips on the market.

As the name suggests, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike conventional skips, that are lifted by using chains.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most commonly supplied for building and construction projects. There are typically two sizes that can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to get rid of substantial quantities of construction and demolition materials, like garden soil, concrete and stone.

Even though they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for a number of other residential and industrial waste disposal tasks.

Other areas covered include King’s Lynn, Gorleston-on-Sea, Hingham, Stalham, Aylsham, Hunstanton, Fakenham and Thetford.
