Honiton Skip Hire FAQs

Do all skips come with a drop door?

Getting a skip which has a drop down door will make loading rubbish into the skip much easier. This is particularly true with hefty waste like garden soil and hardcore, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading up large bulky objects like furniture a lot easier as well.

Most skips can be provided with a drop door, although it will sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when you place your booking if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.

Am I allowed to throw away electronic items in my skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, because electrical items such as old TVs, fridges, computers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects need to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly manner.

Am I allowed to dispose of all kinds of waste in my skip?

You can use your skip to get rid of many different waste types. We are used to collecting and handling a wide variety of items produced from building work, garden projects and house clean-ups. Some examples of allowed waste products include:

  • Furniture
  • Tree trimmings
  • Soil
  • Rubble
  • Bathroom suites
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

The majority of waste materials are generally accepted, therefore whether you want to get rid of furniture, plastics, wood or fabric, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The volume and waste types you throw in your skip will vary depending on which size skip you hired. All skips do have a weight limit for safety. So if you need to get rid of garden soil and bricks, as an example, the largest size you would be able to hire would be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Are there any items which I can’t throw in the skip?

There are a few waste items you will not be permitted to dump in the skip. The reason behind this is that these products incorporate hazardous components which could cause harm to the environment. They can even be dangerous to human health, and so they need to be disposed of separately under UK regulations.

Some of the items which are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC screens
  • Battery packs
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Honiton?

In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you want your skip to be situated on land outside of your company or residence, you will need to receive authorisation from the local council in Honiton, which is called a skip permit. If required, we will be glad to arrange this on your behalf, so it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the license, plus you should be aware before placing your order that obtaining the permit can often take up to two working days.

What is the cost of skip hire in Honiton?

Our aim is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Honiton. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip that you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you need to have your skip placed on the highway or other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the added price of a skip permit.

Am I allowed to load the skip above the level load line?

No. You can only pack the skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste up above this line will make it dangerous to transport, and you could be asked to remove the surplus waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.

How soon can you deliver a skip in Honiton?

If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the following day. In some instances, we will even provide a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed as part of the online order process.

What happens to the waste in my skip?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into a range of waste types, which includes wood, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!

Will a skip hire company from Honiton deliver my skip?

We utilise a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in Honiton and the rest of the country. Our partner skip hire companies are approved and evaluated to guarantee they match our expectations for price, service, recycling and reliability.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The term builders skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The name stems from the fact that these are the most common sizes used by builders and tradespeople.

These large skips are perfect for numerous types of household and business projects. These are the biggest size skips which you can use for heavy builders waste such as top soil, rubble and gravel.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?

It is usually a good idea to be available when anyone delivers anything to your property. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be placed precisely where you want it.

The same thing goes if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.

However, if it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.

How long can I hire a skip for?

You can typically have the skip for as long as 14 days from your date of delivery. You are able to give a preferred pick up date at the time you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us when you have finished, and we will plan your collection. Usually, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a little longer during busy periods.

How do I order a skip?

Hiring a skip in Honiton with us is very easy. Decide on the skip size you will need and enter a couple of details about when and where you would like the skip delivered. You can then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and arrange to have your skip delivered on the date selected.

What size is a mini skip?

When you have a small quantity of waste to throw out, the mini skip might be the ideal choice. What size is known as a mini skip differs from company to company, determined by what sizes they supply.

2 cubic yards is probably the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. The price depends on the specific size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are good for domestic tasks such as modest DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of large amounts of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these containers are used for commercial purposes. However, residential customers can also use them. It is important to consider the area they take up, as they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be utilised for lightweight waste like plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and concrete.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

Our company offers a full range of skip capacities to household and business customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the enormous 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

Listed below are the different sizes available, with a rough idea of how much waste each skip can hold:

  • 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
  • 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
