Kempston Skip Hire FAQs

Do I have to be there when the skip will be delivered?

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

However, for those who can’t be around during the time of delivery, don’t worry. We just ask you to let us know when you place the order, and then we will organise everything from there.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

Using a skip with a drop down door will make filling rubbish into it a lot easier. This is especially true with hefty waste materials such as soil or concrete, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away large bulky items such as pieces of furniture a lot easier also.

The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, however it will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our very best to supply this.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Kempston?

Generally, it will be possible to have a skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to do this, you need to get consent from your local authority in Kempston, which is known as a skip permit. We will organise this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council will charge a fee for this permit, and it can sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to approve this.

Will a skip hire company from Kempston deliver my skip?

We use a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Kempston and the rest of the country. All of our partner skip companies are approved and tested to guarantee they match our standards for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

How long can I hire the skip for?

You can typically keep your skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, there is the option of giving a preferred collection time when placing your order.

Alternatively, simply let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.

It can take a bit longer to pick up your skip over busy times, but we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.

What types of waste am I allowed to put in the skip?

This is one of the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. The main thing to remember is that you may fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are so many kinds of waste that can come from garden projects, building work and home clearances.

Some of the most common items that we collect in our skips include dirt, timber, bush trimmings, kitchen units, baths, and other household objects.

There are also some things that you are not allowed to put in the skip. For example, any electronic products (tumble dryers, TVs and cookers for example), tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them has to abide by a completely different process to make sure they do not cause damage to the environment.

How can I order a skip online?

This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you wish to hire. Let us know whether the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or public property (such as the street). Then, choose the date you want the skip to be delivered. Check your order and make payment using our secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Kempston on the date you have selected.

How long does it take to get a skip in Kempston?

We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you have requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you complete your booking prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive, we strive to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery area, as failed deliveries can lead to a charge for the wasted journey.

What will happen to the rubbish?

The rubbish in the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer station. Here the waste will be sorted by machines and by hand into different waste streams, such as soil, paper, rubble and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to tackle numerous jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be situated on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.

Although most frequently hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.

What skip sizes do you supply?

Skips are offered in a number of sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small residential jobs.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a great option for garage clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial waste disposal task to deal with, the builder’s skip may be the most suitable choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title suggests, these represent the most typical sizes used by builders for building waste, including soil and hardcore. However they can just as well be used for household rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also supply 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For additional details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

We offer a national skip hire and waste management service by using a network of approved and fully licensed local companies. So whether you want skip hire in Kempston, Shefford, Ampthill, Biggleswade or another area in Bedfordshire, we can assist.

What is classed as being a builders skip?

As the name implies, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most often supplied for construction and demolition projects. There are generally two different skip sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to get rid of substantial quantities of construction and demolition waste materials, including soil, rubble and bricks.

Although they are branded a builders skip, these can be used for many other residential and commercial waste disposal jobs.

Can I pile up the waste in my skip?

No, you can only pack your skip up to the level load mark. Loading rubbish up above this line will make it unsafe to transport, and you might be asked to remove the surplus waste before the skip can be collected. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a huge skip that is used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These bins are primarily for business use but can be used by domestic customers as well. However, you need lots of space because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger in comparison to the average skip you will see on the roadside.

Due to the size, RORO skips can only be provided for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not appropriate for getting rid of soil and bricks.

Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products have to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electric products like washing machines, TVs, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.
