Do all skips come with a drop door?
Getting a skip which has a drop down door can make filling waste into it much easier. This is particularly true with hefty waste like garden soil and hardcore, which can then be loaded directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading up big bulky objects such as furniture easier too.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop door, however this can sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when you place your booking if a drop door is needed, and we will do our best to deliver this.
Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be in on the day it is delivered. You can then ensure the lorry has total access and that the skip can be placed precisely where you want it. This also applies when you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially when gates restrict access.
On the other hand, if that isn’t achievable, you don’t need to worry. Simply tell us when you are placing your order, and then we will take care of the rest.
How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are big commercial size skips that are used predominantly in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for companies that produce large amounts of waste materials.
Where will my rubbish go once the skip is picked up?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into different waste streams, including timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This means that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Am I allowed to fill up the skip higher than the level load mark?
You must not fill up a skip beyond the level load line. If you load it above the tip of this mark, it means that your skip is not safe and secure to transport, and you may be asked to take off any excess rubbish before it can be picked up.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Higham Ferrers?
Usually, it will be possible to get the skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But in order to do this, you must get permission from the local authority in Higham Ferrers, which is known as a skip permit. We will arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for the permit, and it may sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
What types of rubbish can I get rid of in a skip?
It is possible to put a variety of rubbish into your skip. This can include timber, bathroom tiles, metal or rubble from a house clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden jobs are permitted too. Cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be thrown in the skip.
However, there are some items that you cannot put in a skip due to the possible environment or health risk they could trigger.
You can’t throw out your fridge freezer, computer or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things include hazardous materials in one type or another. They need to be disposed of separately from general waste.
