Irthlingborough Skip Hire FAQs
Do I need to be there whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t have to be home when the skip is going to be delivered, but it does help. Being home when your skip is due to be delivered means that you can ensure the driver is given complete access and that the skip will be dropped precisely where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is being delivered to business premises, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
However, for those who can’t be around during the time of delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you place the order, and then we will arrange everything from there.
What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
The items in your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer centre. Here the waste will be separated by machinery and also by hand into various waste streams, like soil, cardboard, hardcore and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.
How large is a roll-on roll-off container?
The roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a massive container that can be used to get rid of large amounts of waste. These containers are mainly for business use but can be hired by residential clients also. Having said that, you will want a good amount of space since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger than the average skip you will see on the side of the road.
As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off skips should only be hired for light materials like plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and bricks.
How many different skip sizes are there?
We are able to offer a full-range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip perfect for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A common option for larger sized projects, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Irthlingborough businesses with a significant volume of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How do you hire a skip online?
Ordering a skip in Irthlingborough through us is incredibly easy. Decide on the skip size you require and input a couple of details about where and when you need the skip delivered. You then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?
No, you can not put old electronic waste items in your skip. This can include items like printers, cookers, tumble dryers, freezers and television sets. Electric objects can’t be thrown in the skip because they can contain hazardous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.
What size is a builders skip?
The term builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The label comes from the fact that these are the most typical sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are great for numerous types of domestic and commercial projects. These are the largest skip sizes which can be used for heavy builders waste including top soil, rubble and concrete.
How long will it take to get a skip in Irthlingborough?
When you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the very next day. In some instances, we can even provide a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed as part of the order process.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
Typically, you can keep the skip for a maximum of two week. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is full prior to the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.
Can you deliver skips across Northamptonshire?
Certainly. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to provide skips to domestic and commercial customers throughout Northamptonshire and anywhere else in the UK.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Irthlingborough?
To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work with a wide range of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to make sure we can provide customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.
How big is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are great for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them ideal for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and broken baby toys to paving slabs and soil. With a capacity of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you having to make numerous visits to the local recycling centre.
Am I able to have a skip with a drop down door?
In general, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop-down door, depending on size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip that has a drop door is primarily useful if you are hiring a large builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow waste materials straight into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, as they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Can I put all kinds of rubbish in a skip?
This is one of the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. The main thing to consider is that you may fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of waste that can result from garden work, building work and household clearances.
Some of the most typical things which we find in skips include soil, wood, bush trimmings, cabinets, baths, and various household items.
There are some materials that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. For example, any electronic goods (fridges and freezers, TVs and laptops for example), old car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them must abide by an entirely different process to ensure they don’t cause harm to the environment.
If I would like a skip on a road in Irthlingborough, will I need to have a permit?
In the vast majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you would like the skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or house, you must obtain permission from your local authority in Irthlingborough, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we will gladly arrange this for you, so it’s one less issue to think about. The council does charge a fee for the permit, plus you should be aware before ordering that securing the licence can often take up to two working days.
Can I stack up the waste in my skip?
You must not fill up the skip past the level load mark. When you fill it up above the tip of this mark, it means your skip is not safe and secure to transport, and you could be asked to take off any extra waste prior to it being picked up.
What is the cost of skip hire in Irthlingborough?
This depends on the skip size you need and whether you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the least expensive option. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in business settings.
