Hungerford Skip Hire FAQs

How large is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a cheap skip to dispose 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 (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to tackle numerous jobs.

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

Although most often chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Hungerford?

In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you would like your skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or residence, you will need to secure authorisation from the local authority in Hungerford, which is known as a skip permit. If necessary, we would be glad to organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for your license, and you should know before placing your order that getting the licence will often take up to two working days.

How much will skip hire in Hungerford cost?

This depends on the size you will need and if you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the cheapest choice. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings.

What is classed as a builders skip?

The builders skip is the most popular skip that is hired across the country. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is ideal for most building work, which is where the name stems from.

The 8 yd builders skip is the biggest size that you can use for hefty waste matter including garden soil, concrete, stone and rubble.

What will happen to my rubbish when the skip is picked up?

When you have finished filling your skip, we will come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre in or local to Hungerford where we will sort the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.

Which size skips have a door?

If you are selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is made for disposing of heavy building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked in to the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop door, however these are typically less common. The reason being these sizes are generally small enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to make sure a container which has a drop door is provided.

How soon can you deliver a skip in Hungerford?

We can in most cases deliver skips to Hungerford the following working day when your order is made before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking system offers you various delivery dates to choose from. So whether you need a skip to arrive asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.

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

It is usually a good idea to be in when anyone delivers anything to your house. That enables you to ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be located precisely where you need it.

The same thing goes for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.

Do you deliver skips across Berkshire?

Absolutely. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we can deliver skips to both household and commercial customers across Berkshire and elsewhere in the UK.

What things can I put in my skip?

You can use a skip to dispose of lots of different waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and handling a wide variety of materials produced from construction jobs, garden projects and home clean-ups. A few examples of permitted waste types can include:

  • Furniture
  • Garden cuttings
  • Top soil
  • Stone and concrete
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Cabinets and units

The majority of waste types are usually accepted, and so whether you need to throw out metals, plastic materials, wood or clothing, we can normally take your rubbish away.

The quantity and items you put in your skip will vary based on the size skip you hired. Skips have a weight limit for safety. So if you wish to get rid of garden soil and hardcore, as an example, the biggest size you would be allowed to use would be the 8 yard skip.

What sort of items am I not allowed to put in a skip?

There are some materials you are not permitted to throw out in your skip. The reason behind this is that some goods incorporate hazardous components that may harm the environment. They could also be damaging to human health, and so they have to be disposed of separately under UK law.

Some of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

You can normally keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the date of delivery. You may provide a preferred collection date when you place your order. Alternatively, you can let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will organise the collection. Usually, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer during busy periods.

Will a skip hire company from Hungerford deliver my skip?

We use a network of both local and national skip hire companies to supply skips to our clients in Hungerford and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner skip hire providers are approved and evaluated to make certain they match our expectations for price, service, recycling rates and reliability.

Can I pile up the waste in my skip?

You must not fill your skip past the level load line. If you load it above the tip of this mark, it means that your skip will not be secure to move, and you might be asked to remove any extra waste before it can be picked up.

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are large commercial scale skips that are used mainly within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for organisations that generate significant quantities of waste.

What different sizes do skips come in?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Hungerford, you have several sizes to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for small house clearances and DIY jobs.

Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also means they are ideal for household clear ups involving bulky objects such as household furniture and beds.

We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for anyone with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only suited to light waste materials, so they cannot be used to dispose of soil or rubble.

For additional information about the different sizes offered, including measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?

Electrical objects such as television sets, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore should not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic objects must be segregated from other materials. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

Other areas covered include Slough, Ascot, Bracknell, Sandhurst, Wokingham, Reading, Newbury and Windsor.
