Huntingdon Skip Hire FAQs
Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Huntingdon?
In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want the skip to be placed on land outside of your business or house, you have got to receive authorisation from the local authority in Huntingdon, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we will be happy to organise this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less thing to worry about. The council does charge a fee for the road permit, and you should know before booking that securing the permit will often take up to two working days.
What is a builders skip?
The term builders skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The label originates from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are perfect for a wide variety of household and business projects. They are the biggest size skips that you can use for weighty builders waste including dirt, rubble and bricks.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, because electronic items including old televisions, cookers, pcs and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items must be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly manner.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into various waste streams, including wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you manage a company in Huntingdon and want to get rid of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a perfect choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips that are available.
As the name implies, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, as opposed to normal skips, which are lifted using chains.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, that provides you with sufficient time to fill your skip. However, if you do need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, if you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just tell us once you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
Can I stack up waste in my skip?
It is important to not overload your skip, as you run the risk of being required to take out surplus waste before it can be collected. No matter what size you order, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, because transporting an overloaded bin is unsafe, as materials could drop and cause personal injury or damage to other people.
To prevent this problem, please be sure to order a skip size suited to your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full but you have additional rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
What waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?
It is possible to throw a variety of waste types in the skip. This can include timber, bathroom tiles, metal or concrete from a house clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, soil and rock from garden work is permitted as well. Cupboards and worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be discarded in a skip.
There are, however, a few items that can’t be put in a skip a result of the possible environmental or health risks they may trigger.
You are unable to throw in your fridge, television or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. All of these items contain hazardous materials in one kind or another. They should be disposed of separately from your normal rubbish.
If you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to organise a separate service for this material. Feel free to get in touch for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
When will my skip be delivered?
When you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. In some cases, we can even offer a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed during the order process.
Do you deliver skips across Cambridgeshire?
Yes. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we can deliver skips to both residential and business customers throughout Cambridgeshire and elsewhere in the UK.

We will immediately show you the skip sizes we offer in your town and how much each one will cost you to hire.

What sizes do skips come in?
We are able to supply a full range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip suitable for modest DIY tasks and household clearances. A common option for larger sized jobs, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Huntingdon firms which produce a big volume of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Can I get a skip that has a drop down door?
Generally, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you require a drop door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip with a drop door is primarily useful if choosing a large builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow your rubbish straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, because they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact size provided by skip companies and is great for small DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some firms offer a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
Should I be in when the skip is delivered?
It is always best if you can be there when anybody delivers anything to your home. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be located exactly where you want it.
The same thing goes for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.
However, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
