Ibstock Skip Hire FAQs

What kinds of waste am I able to get rid of in a skip?

It is possible to throw a wide array of waste types into the skip. This includes timber, ceramic tiles, plastics or rubble from a property clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, soil and rock from garden work is permitted as well. Dated units from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also go in a skip.

There are, however, some items that you are not allowed to put in a skip a result of the possible ecological or health risk they could trigger.

You can not throw in your fridge freezer, laptop or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things incorporate hazardous elements in one kind or another. They should be disposed of separately from your normal rubbish.

Should you require hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to organise a separate collection for this waste. Please email for more details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.

What size skips have got a door?

If you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop door. This is ideal for disposing of hefty building and demolition rubbish, as it can be pushed into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop down door, though these are less common. Simply because these sizes are generally low enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, please let us know when placing your order. We will do our utmost to ensure a container with a drop door is supplied.

How many different skip sizes are available?

Skips are available in a number of sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is perfect for small residential tasks.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yd is a great option for garden clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant waste disposal job to tackle, the builder’s skip might be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label indicates, they are the most typical sizes ordered by builders for building waste, such as clay and rubble. But they can equally well be hired for domestic waste such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also supply 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For additional information about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

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

No, you can not put old electrical waste items in your skip. This includes things such as computers, hobs, tumble dryers, freezers and computer monitors. These products can’t be discarded in the skip as they can include hazardous materials and components.

As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

When you have a small amount of waste to get rid of, a mini skip might be the best option. What size is referred to as a mini skip is different from business to business, according to what sizes they supply.

2 cubic yards is probably the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. Price is based on the actual size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are ideal for domestic work including modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

You can usually keep a skip for as many as 2 weeks from your delivery date. You are able to provide a preferred pick up day at the time you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us when you have finished, and we will prepare your collection. Normally, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer over busy periods.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container used to transport huge volumes of waste. Mostly, these skips are used for commercial uses. However, domestic customers may also hire them. You should take into account the area they take up, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be utilised for light waste such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of soil and stone.

How much will skip hire in Ibstock cost?

Our aim is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Ibstock. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you wish to have a skip positioned on the street or other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the added expense of the skip permit.

What is classed as being a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most frequently hired for building and demolition projects. There are usually two different sizes that may be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which can be used to get rid of significant quantities of construction and demolition materials, including earth, rubble and rock.

Even though they are labelled a builders skip, these can be used for various other residential and commercial waste disposal jobs.

Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?

You don’t need to be home when the skip is being delivered, however it can help. Being home when your skip is being delivered means you can ensure the lorry driver is given full access and that the skip will be placed exactly where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is being hired to business premises, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

Having said that, when you can’t be available during the time of delivery, don’t worry. We just ask that you let us know when you book your order, and then we will organise things from there.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Ibstock?

We use a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in Ibstock and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner skip hire companies are approved and evaluated to ensure they meet our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

Is it okay to fill the skip above level load line?

It is essential to never overload a skip. You can not pass the level load line that is indicated on the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it becomes very unsafe to move. Which means that when you overload the skip, you could be asked to take away the surplus waste. Regardless of how secure you feel the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be hazardous and is therefore not allowed.

You have to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will normally incur a fee for the wasted trip.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Ibstock?

In most situations, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want the skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or residence, you need to receive permission from your local council in Ibstock, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we would be happy to organise this for you, and so it’s one less point to think about. The council will charge a fee for your skip license, and you should know before booking that getting the licence will often take up to 2 working days.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into a range of waste streams, such as timber, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible.
