Below are a few of the typical questions we have received relating to our skip hire and recycling services.

Holsworthy Skip Hire FAQs

Can I put electrical items in my skip?

No, you cannot throw old electrical waste products in a skip. This can include items like printers, hobs, washing machines, refrigerators and tv sets. Electronic objects can’t be discarded in the skip because they can include hazardous materials and components.

Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Holsworthy?

This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a skip permit when it is placed on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if your skip will be on your private property, such as a driveway or on your business premises.

Should you have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know during the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with your local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can place your skip on private property, it will save you some money.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

You can normally have your skip for as many as 14 days from the delivery date. It is possible to provide a chosen collection date at the time you place your order. Otherwise, you can tell us when you have finished with the skip, and then we will prepare your collection. Usually, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer over hectic periods.

What size is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to tackle numerous tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be situated on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit.

Although most often hired by household customers, the mini skip can even tackle smaller commercial jobs.

What skip sizes will have a door?

Generally, most skips can be provided with a drop-down door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you want a drop door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip with a drop door is mainly beneficial if hiring a big builder’s skip, since it enables you to wheelbarrow rubbish into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, because they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you have requested. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you confirm your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will arrive, we try to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery area, as unsuccessful deliveries can lead to a charge for the wasted trip.

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

The term builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. The name originates from the fact that they are the most common sizes ordered by builders and tradespeople.

These large containers are perfect for numerous residential and business jobs. They are the biggest size skips which can be used for hefty builders waste like top soil, stone and concrete.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a substantial skip that can be used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These skips are predominantly for commercial use but can be hired by domestic customers also. However, you will require a lot of space as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger than the average skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.

Due to the size, roro containers should only be provided for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of soil and bricks.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip?

After you have finished with your skip, we come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste recycling centre either in or local to Holsworthy where we will sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

Will a skip hire company from Holsworthy deliver my skip?

A local skip hire firm will likely deliver your skip in Holsworthy. We work with a network of both regional and national companies to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are fully vetted to ensure they match the high expectations we demand when it comes to customer service, cost and environmental performance.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?

You don’t need to be at your property when the skip is going to be delivered, but it will help. Being home when the skip is due to be delivered means you can make sure the lorry driver can be given full access and that your skip can be placed exactly where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is being delivered to business premises, we will appreciate your support during the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

Even so, for those who can’t be around for the delivery, don’t worry. We just ask you to tell us when you place the order, and we will arrange everything from there.

Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?

Unfortunately not. You are only allowed to fill up your skip up to the level load line. Loading waste up over this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you might be told to get rid of the excess waste before your skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.

What can I put in my skip?

It is possible to fill the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly generated from loft clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, garden soil, rubble, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.

What you throw in the skip would depend on the skip size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, if you will be using the skip for heavy building wastes such as bricks or top soil, the maximum size you could use is an 8 yard skip.

Some materials can not be discarded in the skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.
