Ilkeston Skip Hire FAQs

Will a Ilkeston skip hire company deliver my skip?

We utilise a large network of both local and national skip hire companies to supply skips to our customers in Ilkeston and the rest of the country. Each of our partner companies are verified and evaluated to guarantee they satisfy our standards for price, customer service, recycling and reliability.

Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?

Electronic items including tv sets, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste and therefore cannot be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic goods have to be separated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly way.

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

The builders skip is the most frequent skip which is hired across the country. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is fantastic for most building and construction jobs, which is where the label stems from.

The 8 yard builder’s skip will be the biggest option that you can use for hefty materials including dirt, concrete, bricks and rubble.

Is it okay to load up my skip higher than level load line?

You should not load your skip past the level load mark. When you fill it above the tip of this level, it means that the skip is not safe to move, and you might be asked to remove any extra rubbish prior to it being picked up.

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

If you operate a company in Ilkeston and want to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a perfect option. Available in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that can be hired.

As the name indicates, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to regular skips, which are lifted by using chains.

Which size skips can have a drop door?

For anyone who is hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is ideal for getting rid of heavy building and construction waste materials, as it can be walked in the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop door, however these are more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically low enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to make sure a skip which has a drop door is delivered.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Ilkeston?

In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need the skip to be situated on land outside of your company or residence, you must secure permission from your local council in Ilkeston, which is called a skip permit. If required, we will gladly arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for your license, plus you should be aware before ordering that getting the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.

Where will my rubbish go when the skip is picked up?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into different waste materials, including timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What sort of rubbish am I able to put in a skip?

A skip may be used to dispose of many different types of waste materials. We are used to collecting and handling a multitude of materials from building jobs, garden landscaping and household clearances. Examples of allowed waste types include things like:

  • Home furnishings
  • Garden cuttings
  • Garden soil
  • Concrete
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Cabinets and units

Most waste types are generally accepted, so whether you need to discard metals, plastic materials, wood or old toys, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The quantity and things you discard in the skip can vary based on the size skip you have hired. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you wish to dispose of garden soil and concrete, for example, the biggest size you will be permitted to hire will be the 8 yard skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?

There are several materials which you will not be allowed to throw out in your skip. The reason for this is that some products incorporate hazardous elements which could damage the environment. They can also be damaging to human health, therefore they need to be discarded separately under UK laws.

A few of the goods that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Battery packs
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

What is a mini skip?

When you have a small amount of waste to dispose of, the mini skip may be the perfect solution. What size is described as a mini skip differs from company to company, according to what sizes they have.

The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. Cost is based on the actual size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are perfect for household work like small DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

Do I have to be there whenever the skip is delivered?

You don’t really need to be at your property when your skip is going to be delivered, however it will help. Being home whenever the skip is due for delivery means you can ensure the driver is given complete access and that the skip will be dropped precisely where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is being delivered to business premises, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

Having said that, if you can’t be around for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you book your order, and we will organise everything from there.
