Holbeach Skip Hire FAQs
Am I able to have a skip that has a drop down door?
When you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop door. This is ideal for disposing of heavy building and demolition waste, as it can be walked in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop down door, however these are generally less common. This is because these sizes are typically small enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our utmost to make sure a container that has a drop door is supplied.
Will a skip hire company from Holbeach deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in Holbeach and the rest of the UK. All of our partner skip companies are verified and tested to guarantee they match our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.
Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Electronic items like televisions, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and so cannot be placed in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered items have to be separated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.
If I would like a skip on the road in Holbeach, will I need to have a permit?
If possible, you should have the skip left on a hard surface. If you are doing a residential project, then the drive will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, when neither is available, the road or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public property, you must get a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be dropped on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Holbeach. If this is needed, we will request the license to be granted on your behalf. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
Skips are available in a variety of different sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is great for small household jobs.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a fantastic choice for shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to undertake, the builder’s skip could be the best option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name suggests, they are the most frequent sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, like soil and stone. But they can just as well be used for household rubbish such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.
We also offer 10-16 cubic yard containers and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For additional info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a large skip that is used to get rid of large amounts of rubbish. These skips are predominantly for business use but can be hired by domestic customers also. However, you will need lots of space as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger compared to the typical skip you will likely see on the roadside.
Due to the size, these skips should only be hired for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suited to disposing of concrete and rubble.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we are delivering the skip. Providing we are able to gain access to where you need it delivered, we will take care of it all.
In case you are not going to be at home, simply let us have any relevant delivery directions when you book the order. For instance, you may want the skip to be positioned at a particular side of your drive. Or you might want to make sure the skip does not obstruct entry to your garage.
Whatever the case may be, simply tell us when you place your order, and then we will make sure your directions will be passed to the lorry driver.
What can I put in the skip?
Before ordering your skip, you must make sure that the sort of waste materials you intend to dispose of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you are able to discard in your skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use your skip to get rid of building and demolition rubbish, such as old bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Examples of forbidden items include electrical items, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from general waste.
Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?
It is vital not to overfill your skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is indicated along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it is very dangerous to move. This means that when you overload your skip, you might be asked to take off the surplus waste. However safe you believe the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be unsafe and is prohibited.
What will happen to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
The rubbish in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station. Here the waste will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into various waste materials, including metal, cardboard, concrete and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.

How large is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to handle numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be positioned on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most commonly hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
You can normally have a skip for as long as 14 days from your delivery date. You are able to give a preferred collection day when you place your order. Otherwise, you can tell us when you have finished, and we will organise your collection. Normally, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer during hectic periods.
How long will it take to get a skip in Holbeach?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a date that suits you. We can normally provide a following day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, since to go on public property (for example a road), you must gain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.
Due to many factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it arriving in a AM or PM slot.
What is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is probably the most frequent skip which is ordered in the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builders skip is perfect for most building and demolition projects, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 yard builders skip is the largest size which can be used for heavy materials such as soil, concrete, stone and rubble.
Will you deliver to other areas in Lincolnshire?
Sure, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skip sizes to locations across Lincolnshire, including Holbeach, Market Rasen, Bourne and Wragby. So wherever you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
What is the cost of skip hire in Holbeach?
The price of getting a skip in Holbeach will depend on the size of skip you want. The lowest priced option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you want a larger sized skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you want to have the skip positioned on the highway, because you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
