Ivybridge Skip Hire FAQs

How big is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are perfect for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and broken toys to paving blocks and soil. With a capacity of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make several trips to the local recycling centre.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you manage a company in Ivybridge and need to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a perfect option. Available in 20 – 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips on the market.

As the name indicates, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, as opposed to standard skips, that are picked up by using chains.

What sizes do skips come in?

We offer a whole range of skip capacities to household and industrial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

Listed below are the various skip sizes to choose from, with a rough idea of the amount of waste each size can hold:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags

Do you deliver skips across Devon?

Of course, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skips to areas across Devon, such as Ivybridge, Dawlish, Barnstaple and Kingsbridge. So no matter where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

Am I allowed to put electrical products in my skip?

Unfortunately this is not allowed, because electrical items such as old televisions, cookers, pcs and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly fashion.

How do you order a skip online?

Ordering a skip in Ivybridge with us is very easy. Choose the skip size you will need and enter a handful of details about where and when you would like the skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then prepare to get your skip delivered.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Ivybridge?

Normally, it is possible to get a skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to do this, you need to have approval from your local authority in Ivybridge, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for this license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.

How much will skip hire in Ivybridge cost?

This will depend on the skip size you will need and whether you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the cheapest option. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in industrial settings. To receive an immediate price for skip hire in Ivybridge, simply enter your postcode into the search box above.

What can I put in my skip?

It is possible to fill the skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly generated from garage clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include wood, top soil, rubble, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you put in the skip will depend on which skip size you have hired, as there is a weight restriction. For example, when you are using a skip for heavy building waste such as stone or dirt, the biggest size you can hire is the 8 yard skip.

Some materials can not be discarded in the skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.

How soon can you deliver a skip to Ivybridge?

Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a date that suits you. We will typically give you a next day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, since to go on public property (for example a road), you need to obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.

As a result of many factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it to be delivered within a AM or PM slot.

What will happen to my rubbish when the skip is collected?

The items in your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer centre. Here the contents will be separated by machinery and also by hand into different waste streams, like metal, paper, concrete and timber. Processing the waste in this manner helps to increase the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is always to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste ending up in landfill.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Ivybridge?

To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work together with a variety of local and national companies. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to make sure we can offer customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.

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

I’m afraid not. You can only fill up the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste materials up over this line makes it dangerous to move, and you could be told to take off the excess waste before the skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or any other objects to increase the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.

How long can I keep a skip for?

Typically, you can keep a skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you do not need to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.

What is classed as being a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the largest containers that can be hired to discard substantial building and construction waste such as rock, bricks, gravel or clay.

The builders skip is perfect for a wide range of jobs. If you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out the shed, these substantial skips tend to be the most cost-effective solution available.

Am I able to get a skip which has a drop down door?

Generally, most skips can be provided with a drop down door, depending on size, availability and area. If you require a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip which has a drop door is primarily helpful if you are choosing a big builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow waste into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, as they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?

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

However, in the event you can’t be around during the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you place the order, and then we will arrange everything from there.

Other areas covered include Dawlish, Barnstaple, Kingsbridge, Newton Abbot, Budleigh Salterton, Exeter, Buckfastleigh and North Tawton.
