Harleston Skip Hire FAQs
If I require a skip on the road in Harleston, will I need a permit?
Preferably, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface area. If you are carrying out a residential project, then your driveway will be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, if neither is available, the street or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public property, you will need to obtain a permit from the local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be positioned on a road, grass verge as well as other public property in Harleston. If this is needed, we will request the license to be granted on your behalf. An extra charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.
Can I fill my skip above level load line?
It is essential not to overload the skip. You should not pass the level load line indicated along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it is very unsafe to transport. Which means that if you overload the skip, you might be asked to take off the surplus waste. However safe you feel the skip to be, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This is dangerous and is prohibited.
What things can I put in the skip?
You are allowed to throw a variety of waste types into the skip. This can include wood, floor tiles, metal or concrete from a property clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, soil and rock from garden work is allowed as well. Dated units from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be discarded in your skip.
However, there are some materials that you are not allowed to put in a skip because of the potential environmental or health risks they could trigger.
You can not throw out your fridge freezer, computer monitor or your old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things include hazardous elements in one kind or another. They must be disposed of separately from normal waste.
If you want hazardous waste removal, we might be able to organise a separate service for this material. Please contact us for more information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
How much does skip hire in Harleston cost?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Harleston, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you which skip sizes we provide in your area and how much each one will cost to hire. If your skip will be on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest size delivered by skip firms and is ideal for small DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some firms provide a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Using a skip which has a drop down door will make loading waste into the skip so much easier. This is particularly true with heavy materials like garden soil and hardcore, which can then be loaded directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away big bulky objects like furniture much easier also.
The majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, although this can sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a door is needed, and we will do our best to provide this.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be there when anyone delivers anything to your property. That allows you to ensure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be dropped exactly where you need it.
The same applies if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, if it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
What skip sizes do you provide?
We can provide a wide range of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for modest DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A common option for larger sized jobs, renovations and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Harleston firms which produce a big amount of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The phrase builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yd skip. The term stems from the fact that they are the most common sizes used by builders and tradespeople.
These substantial skips are great for numerous residential and commercial jobs. These are the largest sizes which can be used for hefty builders waste including soil, rubble and concrete.

How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are substantial commercial size skips that are used primarily in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for businesses that produce large volumes of waste.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your booking prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver, we try to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery position, as failed delivery attempts can lead to a fee for a wasted journey.
Who will deliver my skip?
We use a network of both local and national skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in Harleston and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner skip hire companies are verified and tested to make certain they meet our expectations for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.
What happens to the waste?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into different waste streams, including wood, metals, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
The standard hire period is a fortnight from the delivery date. However, when you order the skip, you can choose a pick up date that is perfect for you. Of course, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is fully loaded sooner than expected, contact us, and we will get it collected as soon as possible.
We can usually complete collections within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to remember that this may not always be possible at busier times. Once collected, your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Can I put electrical products in the skip?
Unfortunately it is not permitted, as electrical products including old TVs, freezers, computers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items need to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly manner.
