Kesgrave Skip Hire FAQs

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you have a business in Kesgrave and wish to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container could be a great option. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips that you can hire.

As the name implies, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike standard skips, that are lifted using chains.

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

If at all possible, you should have the skip left on a hard surface area. If you are doing a residential project, then a drive is going to be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, when neither is available, the street or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public property, you will need to get a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be located on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Kesgrave. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be granted for you. An extra cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

Do I need to be home when the skip is going to be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be at home at the time it is delivered. You can then make sure the lorry has total access and that the skip can be situated exactly where you need it. The same is applicable when you have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates restrict access.

On the other hand, when this isn’t achievable, you don’t have to worry. Just let us know when placing your order, and then we will take care of the rest.

What types of waste can I put in a skip?

You can throw a variety of rubbish into your skip. This includes timber, tile, metal or concrete from a household clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, soil and rock from garden tasks are allowed also. Cupboards and worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be discarded in a skip.

There are, however, some materials that you cannot put in a skip a result of the potential ecological or health risk they can trigger.

You can’t throw out your refrigerator, television or your old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. All of these items incorporate hazardous components in one type or another. They should be discarded separately from normal rubbish.

If you require hazardous waste removal, we may be able to arrange a separate service for this material. Please contact us for more information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

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

When your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a day that best suits you. We can typically provide a next day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, as to be on public property (such as a road), you must obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.

Due to many factors that can impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it arriving within a AM or PM slot.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, that provides you with plenty of time to fill the skip. However, if you do need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, in the event you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just tell us once you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.

What are the different skip sizes to pick from?

Skips are available in a variety of different sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is great for small residential tasks.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a great option for garage clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial rubbish 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 title indicates, they are the most common sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, like soil and hardcore. However they can just as well be used for household waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.

We also provide 10-16 yard containers and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more info on the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

When you have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, the mini skip could be the ideal solution. What size is known as a mini skip is different from company to company, depending on what sizes they supply.

2 cubic yards is considered the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. Cost depends on the actual size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are good for residential tasks like small DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

We work with a network of both regional and national businesses to enable us to offer our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are vetted to guarantee they satisfy the high standards we demand in terms of customer service, price and environmental performance.

Can I throw away electrical products in my skip?

Electrical products such as tv sets, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore should not be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric products have to be separated from other materials. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly way.

Is it ok to load my skip above the level load mark?

You should not load the skip past the level load line. If you load it over the tip of this mark, it means that the skip is not safe and secure to transport, and you could be asked to remove the extra rubbish before it can be picked up.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

Nearly all skips can be provided with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.

Having a skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the bin, particularly with weighty materials, such as dirt and concrete, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, such as furniture.

What will happen to the waste in the skip?

The materials in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer centre. Here the contents will be separated by machinery and by hand into different waste materials, such as metal, cardboard, concrete and wood. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to increase the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.

How big is a builders skip?

The builders skip is probably the most popular skip which is ordered throughout the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is great for most building and construction projects, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 yard builder’s skip is the biggest option that you can use for hefty waste matter such as garden soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.
