Halstead Skip Hire FAQs

What skip sizes can have a drop door?

Getting a skip which has a drop down door can make filling waste into it so much easier. This is particularly true with heavy materials such as garden soil or stone, which can then be loaded into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of big bulky items like furniture a lot easier too.

The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, however this will sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our best to supply this.

Is it okay to fill up the skip above the top?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it dangerous to move, and you will be asked to remove any items over the level load line. This also means you are unable to make use of sheets of timber, doors or some other item, since this will increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty of care to ensure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.

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

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?

If you manage a company in Halstead and wish to dispose of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a great choice. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers available.

As the name suggests, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike standard skips, which are lifted using chains.

What happens to the rubbish in the skip?

If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into a number of waste types, such as stone, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!

Can I put electrical products in the skip?

No, you cannot dispose of old or unwanted electrical waste items in your skip. This can include things such as computers, microwaves, tumble dryers, freezers and tv sets. Electronic objects can’t be thrown in a skip since they can have hazardous materials and components.

As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.

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

No, you don’t need to be at home when we are delivering the skip. As long as we can gain access to the place you want it located, we will take care of it all.

When you will not be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you place your order. For example, you may need the skip to be located at a particular part of the drive. Alternatively, you may need to ensure that the skip does not obstruct entry to your garage.

Whatever the situation may be, simply tell us when ordering, and then we will make sure your instructions are passed to the lorry driver.

What is a mini skip?

If you have a small amount of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip could be the ideal solution. What size is called a mini skip differs from company to company, according to what sizes they supply.

The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. The price is based on the particular size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are best for residential work such as small DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

How long can I keep a skip for?

You can generally hire the skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you have the choice of giving a preferred collection day when you place your order.

Alternatively, simply let us know when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.

It could take a little longer to collect your skip over busy periods, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Halstead?

Preferably, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface. When you are doing a domestic task, then the drive will be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. However, if neither is available, the road or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public property, you need to have a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be dropped on the street, grass verge or any other public property in Halstead. If this is required, we will request the license to be granted on your behalf. An additional fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.

How many different skip sizes are available?

We are able to supply a full-range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip excellent for small DIY jobs and household clearances. A common option for more substantial tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard skip.

For Halstead companies with a large volume of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What types of waste can I throw in a skip?

You can use a skip to get rid of a variety of waste materials. We are used to collecting and processing a multitude of materials produced from building work, garden projects and household clearances. Some examples of allowed waste products can include:

  • Pieces of furniture
  • Tree trimmings
  • Top soil
  • Bricks and rubble
  • Bathroom suites
  • Cabinets and units

Many materials are usually allowed, and therefore whether you want to throw out metals, plastic materials, timber or fabric, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The quantity and things you throw in your skip can vary based on which size skip you hired. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So to be able to discard soil and concrete, as an example, the largest size you will be able to use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?

There are some materials you will not be permitted to put in your skip. The main reason for this is that some products incorporate hazardous elements which could damage the environment. They can also be dangerous to human health, therefore they have to be disposed of separately under UK legislation.

Examples of the products which are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC monitors
  • Battery packs
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

What size is a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most often hired for construction and demolition projects. There are typically two sizes that can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins which you can use to get rid of large amounts of building and demolition waste, including garden soil, rubble and stone.

Even though they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for many other household and business waste disposal jobs.

How much does skip hire in Halstead cost?

This depends upon the size you will need and whether you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the least expensive choice. The most costly and largest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings.
