What happens to the rubbish when the skip is collected?

After you have finished filling your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre in or local to Hadleigh where we will sort the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

Do you deliver skips across Suffolk?

We provide a national skip hire and waste management service using a network of verified and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Hadleigh, Woodbridge, Acton, Framlingham or any other site in Suffolk, we are able to assist.

How long can I hire the skip for?

Normally, you can have your skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you don’t have to hurry through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

Which skip sizes will have a drop down door?

For anyone who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop door. This is perfect for getting rid of heavy building and demolition waste, as it can be pushed in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop door, though these are generally more uncommon. This is because these sizes are typically low enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip which has a drop door is delivered.

Do I have to be there whenever the skip is delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be at home when the skip is delivered. You can then be sure the lorry has complete access and that the skip is located precisely where you want it. This also applies if you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly when gates restrict access.

However, when this isn’t possible, you don’t have to worry. Simply tell us when making your order, and then we will take care of the rest.

How much does skip hire in Hadleigh cost?

The cost of hiring a skip in Hadleigh depends on the size of skip you need. The lowest priced option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you want a bigger skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also be more if you need to have the skip placed on the road, as you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Am I allowed to fill up the skip above the level load line?

It is vital never to overload the skip. You must not pass the level load line shown on the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it is very dangerous to move. This means that when you overfill the skip, you might be required to remove the excess waste. However safe you believe the skip to be, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This can be dangerous and is therefore prohibited.

How fast can you deliver a skip in Hadleigh?

We will ask you to confirm when you would like 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 have asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you confirm your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver your skip, we strive to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery site, as failed delivery attempts can lead to a charge for a wasted journey.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a large skip that is used to dispose of large volumes of waste. These skips are mainly for commercial use but can be used by residential customers also. Having said that, you should have a good amount of space since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger when compared to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

As a result of the size, roro skips should only be hired for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suitable for disposing of soil and bricks.

What is the size of a builders skip?

The builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These will be the largest containers used to dispose of weighty building and construction waste materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or garden soil.

A builders skip is ideal for a variety of projects. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or cleaning out the loft space, these substantial skips tend to be the most cost-effective choice available.

What kinds of waste can you dispose of in a skip?

You can throw a variety of waste into your skip. This can include timber, ceramic tiles, metal or rubble from a house clearance. Tree and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden tasks are permitted too. Worktops and units from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in a skip.

There are, however, some things that you can’t put in a skip because of the potential ecological or health risk they might cause.

You can’t get rid of your freezer, television or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items contain hazardous components in one kind or another. They should be discarded separately from normal waste.

Should you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to organise a separate collection for this material. Please email for further details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size provided by skip companies and is great for small DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip firms will offer a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

What is the process of hiring a skip in Hadleigh?

This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (such as the street). Next, select the day you need your skip to be delivered. Check your order details and then make payment with our secure online payment system. That’s it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Hadleigh on the date you have selected.

Am I able to throw away electronic products in the skip?

No, you can not dispose of old or broken electrical waste items in your skip. This includes things such as printers, hobs, washing machines, fridges and televisions. Electronic items can’t be discarded in your skip since they can include hazardous materials and components.

Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Hadleigh?

This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a permit when it is positioned on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit when your skip will be on your private property, such as a driveway or on your business premises.

If you do have to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know during the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can locate your skip on private property, you will save a few pounds.
