Halesowen Skip Hire FAQs
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?
If you operate a company in Halesowen and want to get rid of large volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container might be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips available.
As the name implies, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike conventional skips, which are picked up by using chains.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when your skip will be delivered, but it can help. Being in when the skip arrives means that you can make sure the lorry can be given full access and that your skip is positioned exactly where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is being delivered to your company property, we will appreciate your support during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, if you can’t be available at the time of delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place your order, and we will organise everything from there.
How do you order a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us whether the skip will be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (such as the street). Next, choose the date you would like your skip to be delivered. Check your order details and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. Job done! We will deliver your skip to Halesowen on the day you have chosen.
Is it ok to fill up the skip above the top?
No. You are only allowed to fill up the skip up to the level load line. Stacking rubbish up above this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you can be told to remove the surplus waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.
What waste am I allowed to put in my skip?
A skip may be used to discard a variety of types of waste materials. We are used to collecting and handling a wide variety of items generated from construction work, garden landscaping and household clearances. A few examples of allowed waste materials include:
- Home furnishings
- Hedge trimmings
- Top soil
- Stone and concrete
- Bathroom suites
- Kitchen cabinets and units
The majority of waste types are permitted, so whether you would like to get rid of furniture, plastics, timber or clothing, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The quantity and items you throw into the skip may vary based on which size skip you have hired. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you would like dispose of top soil and hardcore, for example, the largest size you will be able to use will be the 8 yard skip.
What kind of items am I not allowed to put in the skip?
There are several waste items which you are not allowed to throw out in the skip. The main reason for this is that some goods incorporate hazardous components which could be harmful to the environment. They may also be damaging to human health, therefore they have to be discarded separately within UK laws.
A few of the items which are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- Computer monitors
- Chemical substances

We offer a UK wide skip hire service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Halesowen, Stourbridge, Solihull, Willenhall or another location in West Midlands, we are able to assist.
How large is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size provided by skip companies and is designed for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip companies provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
How long will it take to get a skip in Halesowen?
We can usually supply skips to Halesowen the next working day when an order is made before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking program will give you various delivery dates to select from. So whether you would like the skip to arrive ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Halesowen?
Usually, it will be possible to have your skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But in order to do this, you will need to have approval from the local council in Halesowen, which is called a skip permit. We can organise this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council do impose a fee for your license, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.
Will the skip come with a drop door?
For anybody who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is perfect for disposing of hefty building and construction rubbish, as it can be walked in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop down door, however these are generally more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally small enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to ensure a container that has a drop door is delivered.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yard skip. The label stems from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are hired by builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are perfect for numerous types of residential and industrial jobs. They are the largest skip sizes which you can use for hefty builders waste like top soil, stone and gravel.
What happens to the rubbish?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into various waste streams, such as wood, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
Electrical items like televisions, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore should not be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered products have to be segregated from other waste. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
