Heanor Skip Hire FAQs
How fast can you deliver a skip in Heanor?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your order prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver, we endeavour to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery position, as unsuccessful deliveries can lead to a fee for the wasted journey.
How long can I keep a skip for?
Usually, you can keep your skip for a maximum of two week. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
Do I need to be home whenever the skip is delivered?
You don’t need to be home when the skip will be delivered, but it does help. Being in when the skip is being delivered means you can make sure the delivery driver is given complete access and that the skip can be located exactly where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is delivered to business property, we will appreciate your support during delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
However, for those who can’t be around during delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you place the order, and we will organise everything from there.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Heanor?
The price of hiring a skip in Heanor will depend on the size of skip you need. The cheapest option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general clearances. If you need a larger skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you want to have a skip on the highway, as you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
If I require a skip on the road in Heanor, will I need to get a permit?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a permit if it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit when your skip is on your private property, like a driveway or inside your company premises.
If you have to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know as part of the order process, and we can make the required arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate the skip on your own land, you will save some pounds.
What will happen to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
The contents of the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer station. Here the contents will be separated by machinery and by hand into different waste streams, like metal, paper, hardcore and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
You are able to load your skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from house clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include timber, top soil, bricks, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip would depend on the skip size you have hired, as there is a weight limit. For example, if you will be using your skip for heavy construction wastes such as rubble or top soil, the biggest size you can get is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you manage a business in Heanor and want to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips that are available.
As the label suggests, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, as opposed to regular skips, that are lifted by using chains.
What size skips do you supply?
Skips are offered in a number of sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is good for small household jobs.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a good choice for garden shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more significant rubbish disposal task to deal with, the builder’s skip may be the most suitable option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label indicates, these represent the most popular sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, including soil and stone. However they can just as well be hired for household waste such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.
We also offer 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For more information about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

We work with a network of both regional and national businesses to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully assessed to make sure they match the high standards we require in terms of customer service, cost and environmental performance.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most often supplied for building projects. There are usually two skip sizes that can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that can be used to dispose of large quantities of building and demolition materials, like earth, concrete and stone.
Although branded a builders skip, these can of course be used for multiple other residential and commercial waste disposal tasks.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are great for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furniture and old baby toys to paving slabs and soil. With a volume of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make numerous trips to the local recycling centre.
What skip sizes have got a drop down door?
Virtually all skip sizes can be supplied with a drop down door, making them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the bin, especially with weighty materials, like soil and rubble, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, like pieces of furniture.
Can you deliver to other areas in Derbyshire?
Yes. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we are able to offer skips to both residential and business customers throughout Derbyshire and elsewhere within the UK.
How do I hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you want to hire. Tell us if the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or council property (such as the road). Then, select the day you need your skip to get delivered. Check your order and make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. All done! We will deliver your skip to Heanor on the date you have chosen.
Am I allowed to throw electrical items in the skip?
No, you cannot throw old or broken electronic waste items in your skip. This can include things such as laptops, microwaves, dishwashers, freezers and monitors. These products can’t be disposed of in the skip because they can include hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
Is it ok to load the skip higher than level load mark?
It is essential not to overfill a skip. You can not pass the level load mark that is indicated on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it can be very unsafe to move. Which means that when you overload your skip, you may be required to take away the surplus rubbish. No matter how secure you feel the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the waste. That is unsafe and is therefore not allowed.
