Heckington Skip Hire FAQs
Can I load my skip above the top?
No. You must only pack the skip up to the level load mark. Loading rubbish up above this line will make it unsafe to transport, and you could be told to take off the excess waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to increase the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are ideal for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and old baby toys to paving slabs and concrete. With a volume of around 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you needing to make numerous journeys to the local recycling centre.
What are the different skip sizes available?
This site offers a whole range of skip capacities to household and business customers all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Listed below are the different sized skips on offer, with a rough idea of the amount of waste each skip is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags

Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when your skip is being delivered, but it can help. Being home whenever the skip is being delivered means that you can ensure the lorry driver can be given full access and that your skip is positioned precisely where you need it. Likewise, if your skip is being delivered to a company property, we will appreciate your support during the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
However, when you can’t be around at the time of delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.
Can I dispose of all types of rubbish in my skip?
Before ordering a skip, it is important to ensure that the kind of waste materials you intend to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types you can put in a skip include household goods like furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use your skip to discard building and demolition waste, like timber, soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Some examples of prohibited items include electronic items, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore have to be discarded separately from general rubbish.
Can I have a skip which has a drop door?
Typically, the majority of skips can be provided with a hinged door, depending on skip size, availability and location. If you want a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful when hiring a big builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini skips, as they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Will a Heckington skip hire company deliver my skip?
We use a network of both local and national skip hire businesses to supply skips to our clients in Heckington and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner skip hire companies are verified and evaluated to guarantee they match our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
How much waste can a builders skip hold?
The builders skip is regarded as the popular skip which is used throughout the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builder’s skip is ideal for most building work, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 yd builder’s skip is the largest size which can be used for heavy waste matter such as garden soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.
Do you deliver to other areas in Lincolnshire?
In addition to delivering our range of skips to Heckington, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Lincolnshire. By utilising a network of local and national skip hire companies, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering in Heckington, Crowland or Skegness, we have got it covered.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
You can normally have your skip for as many as two weeks from the delivery date. You can give a preferred pick up day when you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us when you have loaded the skip, and we will prepare the collection. Normally, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer during busy times.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into a number of waste types, including wood, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Am I allowed to get rid of electrical items in my skip?
No, you cannot dispose of old or broken electronic waste items in a skip. This includes things such as laptops, cookers, dishwashers, refrigerators and computer monitors. Electric items can’t be thrown in the skip because they can include hazardous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Heckington?
In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like the skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or home, you will have to obtain authorisation from the local council in Heckington, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we would be glad to organise this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the skip permit, plus you should know before placing your order that obtaining the permit can often take up to 2 working days.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can typically supply skips to Heckington the following working day when your order is made before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking platform will give you a variety of delivery dates to select from. So whether you would like your skip delivered asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Heckington?
Hiring a skip in Heckington with us is very easy. Decide on the skip size you will need and then enter a few details about when and where you want the skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are large commercial scale skips that are used predominantly in the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for organisations that produce large quantities of waste materials.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Heckington?
The cost of getting a skip in Heckington will depend on the size of skip you require. The least expensive option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you need a larger skip, like an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also be more if you want to have a skip on the highway, since you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
