How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household waste, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to tackle numerous tasks.

Although most commonly chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Hythe?
Our goal is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Hythe. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you need to have your skip placed on the road or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the extra cost of a skip permit.
Is it ok to fill up my skip above the level load mark?
It is essential never to overfill your skip. You should not pass the level load mark indicated along the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it will become very dangerous to move. Which means that if you overload the skip, you may be asked to take off the excess rubbish. However safe you think the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This is dangerous and is not allowed.
How many different skip sizes are available?
We provide a wide range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip perfect for small DIY projects and domestic clearances. A common choice for larger sized tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Hythe firms which generate a significant quantity of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?
If you manage a company in Hythe and need to dispose of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a perfect option. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that are available.
As the name implies, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike conventional skips, which are lifted using chains.
What sort of waste am I able to dispose of in a skip?
Before ordering a skip, it is essential to make sure that the type of waste you need to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Waste types you may put in your skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You may also use a skip to throw out building and construction rubbish, including old bricks, soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Examples of forbidden items include things like electronic items, tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently must be discarded separately from any general rubbish.
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Hythe?
This depends on where the skip will be located. You will only need to have a permit when it is put on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit if the skip is on your private property, such as a driveway or within your business premises.
Should you need to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate the skip on private property, you will save some pounds.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
The normal hire term will be 2 weeks from your delivery date. However, at the time you book your skip, you can choose a collection date that is perfect for you. Obviously, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if the skip is loaded earlier than expected, tell us, and we will collect it at the earliest opportunity.
We can usually complete collections within 48 hours. However, it is important to remember that this may not be possible during busier periods. Once collected, the waste will be taken to a local waste transfer centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Am I allowed to throw away electronic items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric objects need to be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This can include all electronic products including washing machines, monitors, toasters, computers and even hair straighteners.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
If you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is designed for disposing of hefty building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop down door, although these are generally less common. The reason being these sizes are typically low enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

What is the size of a builders skip?
The builder’s skip is the most common skip that is ordered across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is perfect for most building jobs, which is where the name comes from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip will be the biggest option which can be used for hefty materials like soil, concrete, rock and gravel.
