Haverhill Skip Hire FAQs
Will you deliver skips across Suffolk?
As well as delivering our range of skips to Haverhill, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Suffolk. Through a network of local and national waste management companies, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business in Haverhill, Bungay or Lowestoft, we have got you covered.
How large is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a huge container used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These containers are mainly for industrial use but can be hired by household customers also. However, you will need lots of room as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger when compared to the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, RORO containers should only be hired for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and rubble.
Is it ok to fill the skip higher than level load line?
It is important to never overfill a skip. You must not pass the level load line that is shown on the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it becomes very dangerous to move. Which means that when you overfill the skip, you may be required to remove the excess rubbish. Regardless of how safe you believe the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be hazardous and is therefore prohibited.
How big is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are fantastic for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furniture and old baby toys to paving slabs and rubble. With a capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip will save you having to make several journeys to your local recycling centre.
How do I order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip shall be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (such as the road). Then, pick the day you need your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment using our secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Haverhill on the date you have selected.
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can typically have a skip for up to 2 weeks from the delivery date. You may give a preferred pick up day when you make your order. Alternatively, you can let us know after you have finished, and then we will arrange the collection. In most cases, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take a little longer over hectic periods.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Haverhill?
Normally, it will be possible to get your skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to get this done, you have got to have approval from the local authority in Haverhill, which is called a skip permit. We will organise this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for this license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
What sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Haverhill, you have various options to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest domestic clearances and DIY work.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most popular sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their substantial capacity also makes them well suited for household clearances involving bulky objects like household furniture and beds.
We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for anyone with even bigger waste disposal needs. These skips are only suitable for lightweight waste materials, so they can’t be hired to dispose of garden soil or rubble.
For more information regarding the various skip sizes offered, including measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?
As the name implies, a builders skip means the size of skip most often supplied for building and construction work. There are typically two sizes which can be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that can be used to get rid of large amounts of construction and demolition materials, including garden soil, concrete and bricks.
Although branded a builder’s skip, they can be used for many other household and business waste disposal tasks.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Haverhill?
We utilise a large network of both regional and national skip hire firms to supply skips to our customers in Haverhill and the rest of the country. All of our partner skip companies are verified and tested to ensure they meet our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.
What sort of waste can I get rid of in a skip?
This is among the most popular questions people have about our skip hire service. What is important to consider is that you may load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are so many types of rubbish that could come from garden work, building work and house clearances.
Among the most frequent items that we find in skips include soil, timber, hedge trimmings, kitchen cabinets, sinks, as well as other household items.
There are also some items that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This consists of any electrical goods (refrigerators, televisions or washing machines for example), old tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all deemed hazardous waste, and getting rid of them needs to follow a completely different process to make sure they don’t result in harm to the environment.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your order prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we strive to offer you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery area, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can lead to a fee for the wasted trip.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste gets separated into a range of waste streams, such as timber, soil and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Do all skips have a drop door?
Having a skip with a drop door will make loading waste into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly the case with heavy materials such as dirt and concrete, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of large bulky items like pieces of furniture a lot easier also.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop door, but this will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you place your booking if a door is required, and we will do our best to deliver this.
How much will skip hire in Haverhill cost?
This is determined by the skip size you will need and whether you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the lowest priced choice. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in industrial settings.

Can I throw away electronic items in my skip?
Electric powered products like television sets, 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 dictates that electrical products have to be segregated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.
Do I have to be home whenever the skip will be delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we deliver your skip. Providing we can access where you want it located, we are able to take care of everything.
For those who are not going to be in, simply let us know any relevant delivery instructions when placing your order. For instance, you may need the skip to be dropped at a particular side of your driveway. Or you might want to ensure that the skip doesn’t obstruct use of your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, simply tell us when ordering, and then we will ensure your directions will be passed to the delivery driver.
Other areas covered include Bungay, Lowestoft, Felixstowe, Leiston, Ipswich, Newmarket, Brandon and Acton.
