Higher Dunstone Skip Hire FAQs
Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?
The majority of containers can be supplied with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the bin, especially with heavy materials, like dirt and gravel, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
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 work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them ideal for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furnishings 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 having to make numerous visits to your local recycling centre.
Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
Electronic products such as televisions, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore can not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered items have to be separated from other materials. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The name builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. They are the largest skips used to dispose of heavy construction materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or soil.
A builder’s skip is ideal for a wide array of tasks. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out your loft space, these big skips are usually the most cost-effective choice available.
Am I allowed to fill my skip above the side?
It is very important not to overfill your skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take off excessive waste prior to it being picked up. Regardless of what size you hire, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, because transporting an overloaded container can be hazardous, as waste could drop and lead to injury or damage to other people.
To prevent this problem, please ensure you hire a skip size suited to your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full and you have extra waste to dispose of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be at home when we deliver your skip. Providing we can access the place you want it delivered, we can manage it all.
For those who are not going to be in, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when booking the order. For instance, you may prefer the skip to be positioned at a particular area of the property. Or you might want to make sure the skip doesn’t block access to your garage.
No matter what the case might be, provide the information when you place your order, and then we will make sure the directions will be passed on to the lorry driver.

Am I able to dispose of all kinds of rubbish in a skip?
You are allowed to fill up your skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly produced from loft clearances, building work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include wood, dirt, stone, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you put in the skip would depend on which size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, when you will be using your skip for heavy building wastes such as concrete or top soil, the biggest size you could hire is the 8 yard skip.
Some materials cannot be disposed of in the skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.

We make use of a network of both local and nationwide businesses to allow us to offer our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are assessed to ensure they fulfill the high standards we require when it comes to service, price and environmental performance.
If I require a skip on a road in Higher Dunstone, will I need a permit?
Generally, it is possible to get a skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to get this done, you have got to get consent from your local authority in Higher Dunstone, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to arrange this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for your permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can normally keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, there is the choice of offering a preferred collection date when you place your order.
Otherwise, simply tell us when you have finished loading up the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It might take a bit longer to collect your skip during busy periods, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.

Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We can typically provide a following day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip on private property, as to go on public property (for example a road), you will have to obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of many factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it arriving in a AM or PM slot.
Can you deliver skips across Devon?

How much will skip hire in Higher Dunstone cost?
Our aim is to offer the cheapest skip hire service in Higher Dunstone. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip that you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you wish to have a skip situated on the street or other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the added price of a skip permit.
How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These bins are predominantly for business use but can be hired by domestic clients too. However, you should have a good amount of space because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger when compared to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.
Due to the size, roro skips can only be hired for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and bricks.
What will happen to the rubbish in the skip?
The rubbish in the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling facility. Here the waste will be separated by machinery and by hand into numerous waste materials, including metal, cardboard, rubble and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is always to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.
What skip sizes do you deliver?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Higher Dunstone, you have various options to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is excellent for modest household clearances and DIY tasks.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most popular sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also means they are ideal for household clear ups involving bulky objects such as furniture and beds.
We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only appropriate for light materials, so they can’t be hired to get rid of soil or rubble.
