Hucknall Skip Hire FAQs
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact skip offered by skip firms and is designed for smaller DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies offer you a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
Do you deliver to other areas in Nottinghamshire?
Absolutely. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we can deliver skips to residential and commercial customers across Nottinghamshire and elsewhere in the UK.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial industrial size skips that are used mainly within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for organisations that generate large quantities of waste.
Can I put all sorts of waste in my skip?
A skip can be hired to get rid of lots of different types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and processing a multitude of items from building work, garden landscaping and home clearances. A few examples of allowed waste types can include:
- Home furniture
- Garden cuttings
- Top soil
- Bathroom toilets and sinks
- Cabinets and units
Most waste materials are usually accepted, therefore whether you need to dispose of metals, plastics, timber or unwanted toys, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The quantity and waste types you throw in your skip can vary according to the size skip you chosen. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you want to get rid of garden soil and concrete, for example, the biggest size container you would be permitted to use will be the 8 yard builders skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?
There are several waste materials which you will not be permitted to throw out in the skip. The reason behind this is that some goods include hazardous materials which may cause harm to the environment. They can also be dangerous to human health, therefore they must be discarded separately within UK laws.
A few examples of the items that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- PC screens
- Battery packs
Am I able to have a skip with a drop door?
For anyone who is choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is ideal for disposing of hefty building and construction waste, as it can be pushed into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop door, although these are less common. Simply because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our very best to ensure a container which has a drop door is delivered.
Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. You can then be sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip is located precisely where you need it. The same is applicable when you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially when gates restrict access.
On the other hand, if this isn’t achievable, you do not need to stress. Simply tell us when you are making your order, and then we will handle the rest.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get sorted into a range of waste types, including wood, soil and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!
How much does skip hire in Hucknall cost?
This will depend on the skip size you want and if you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the lowest priced choice. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used primarily in business settings.

Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Hucknall?
If at all possible, you should have the skip left on to a hard surface area. For anyone who is doing a household task, then a drive will be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. On the other hand, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public property, you must obtain a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge or other public property in Hucknall. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be granted on your behalf. An extra charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.
Is it ok to fill my skip above the level load mark?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it hazardous to move, and you may be asked to remove any contents above the level load line. This also means you are not allowed to make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other item, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal responsibility to make sure that bins aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure you select the correct sized skip for your requirements and get in touch if you’re not sure which size is best. We would be happy to help.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
Generally, you can have the skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.

What are the different skip sizes available?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Hucknall, you have various sizes to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest domestic clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also means they are suitable for household clear ups involving large items such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even larger waste disposal requirements. These sizes are only appropriate for lightweight waste materials, so they cannot be used to get rid of garden soil or stone.
To get more information about the various sizes available, including proportions, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your order prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to offer you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery location, as failed delivery attempts will lead to a charge for a wasted trip.
Will a Hucknall skip hire company deliver my skip?
To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work together with a wide range of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to supply customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.
Am I allowed to put electrical items in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, because electrical items like old TVs, fridges, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly manner.
What size is a builder’s skip?
A builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. They are the biggest containers used to dispose of substantial building and demolition materials such as stone, bricks, rubble or dirt.
The builders skip is ideal for a wide array of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing the shed, these substantial skips will often be the most cost-effective solution available.
