Horncastle Skip Hire FAQs

How big is a roll-on roll-off container?

A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge skip that can be used to get rid of large amounts of waste. These skips are primarily for industrial use but can be hired by residential clients as well. However, you need lots of room because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger compared to the typical skip you will see on the roadside.

As a result of the size, roro containers should only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and rubble.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Horncastle?

To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Horncastle, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you the sizes we offer in your area and how much each size will cost to order. If your skip is going to be on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.

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

You don’t need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered, however it will help. Being in when your skip is due for delivery means that you can ensure the delivery driver can be given full access and that your skip can be located precisely where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is being delivered to company premises, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.

Even so, for those who can’t be around during the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you book your order, and then we will organise things from there.

We have created our online booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to enter your postcode to view all the different skip sizes we are able to deliver in Horncastle. Pick the best size to meet your needs and provide the details of where and when you want your skip to be delivered.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Horncastle?

In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need the skip to be situated on land outside of your business or house, you will have to get permission from your local authority in Horncastle, which is referred to as a permit. If necessary, we would be happy to organise this for you, and so it’s one less point to worry about. The council does charge a fee for your license, and you should know before ordering that securing the permit can often take up to two working days.

Where does my waste go once the skip is collected?

Once you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility in or local to Horncastle where we will sort the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

Do you deliver to other areas in Lincolnshire?

We offer a national skip hire and recycling service using a network of approved and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you want skip hire in Horncastle, Lincoln, Spilsby, Stamford or any other location in Lincolnshire, we can help.

Do all skips have a drop door?

When you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is great for disposing of heavy building and demolition waste, as it can be pushed in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop-down door, though these are typically less common. Simply because these sizes are generally low enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, please let us know when placing your order. We will do our very best to make sure a container that has a drop door is provided.

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some household rubbish, the mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to take on many jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be situated on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.

Although most often chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also tackle smaller commercial jobs.

What can I put in the skip?

You can use your skip to throw out lots of different waste materials. We are used to picking up and handling lots of materials produced from building jobs, garden landscaping and home clean-ups. Examples of permitted waste types can include:

  • Household furniture
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Top soil
  • Hardcore
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many materials will be permitted, and therefore whether you want to get rid of metals, plastics, wood or textiles, we can normally take your rubbish away.

The volume and items you put into your skip can vary according to which size skip you have hired. All skips have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you need to discard garden soil and rubble, for example, the biggest size container you will be allowed to use will be the 8 yard skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?

There are several waste materials which you will not be allowed to dump in your skip. The main reason for this is that these goods incorporate hazardous materials that may cause harm to the environment. They could also be damaging to human health, therefore they have to be discarded separately within UK law.

Some examples of the products which are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer screens
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

Our standard hire term is two weeks from your date of delivery. However, at the time you book your skip, you can provide a pick up date that is best for you. Obviously, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is full sooner than expected, tell us, and we will get it picked up at the earliest opportunity.

We can normally be out to get your skip within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this may not be possible at busy periods. Once collected, your skip will be transported to your local waste recycling centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

What is a builder’s skip?

The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These are the biggest containers that can be hired to get rid of heavy construction waste materials such as stone, concrete, gravel or dirt.

The builder’s skip is great for a variety of jobs. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning out your garden shed, these substantial skips are often the most cost-effective option available.

How quick can you deliver a skip in Horncastle?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We can usually offer a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, because to be on public property (like a road), you need to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it to be delivered within a morning or afternoon slot.

Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?

It is essential not to overfill the skip. You should not pass the level load line that is indicated on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it can be very hazardous to transport. Which means that if you overload the skip, you might be asked to take off the excess rubbish. Regardless of how safe you feel the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be unsafe and is not allowed.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products need to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric powered products including tumble dryers, monitors, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.

Will a skip hire company from Horncastle deliver my skip?

To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work in partnership with a variety of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.

What are the different skip sizes to pick from?

Skips come in a wide range of different sizes to match various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is good for small domestic projects.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a fantastic choice for garage clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial waste disposal job to take on, the builder’s skip may be the best choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name suggests, these are the most common sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, including soil and rubble. However they can equally well be used for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also deliver 10-16 cubic yard containers and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further info on all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
