Kettering Skip Hire FAQs
Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?
It is usually best if you can be in when anyone delivers something to your property. You can then make sure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be located just where you need it.
The same applies for those who have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, if it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Which size skips have a door?
For anyone who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is perfect for disposing of hefty building and demolition materials, as it can be pushed in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop door, although these are typically more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are generally low enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our best to ensure a container with a drop door is supplied.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Kettering?
To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Kettering, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you which sizes we offer in your area and how much each size will cost to order. If your skip is going to be on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your booking before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we try to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery location, as unsuccessful deliveries will lead to a fee for the wasted trip.
What is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a cheap skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to tackle many tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be situated on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit.
Although most commonly chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can also tackle smaller commercial jobs.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
We offer a full selection of skip sizes to household and commercial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the huge 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the various sizes on offer, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each skip can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
- 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

What is classed as a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often used for building and demolition projects. There are usually two different sizes that may be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips which can be used to get rid of substantial quantities of construction and demolition waste materials, such as dirt, rubble and bricks.
Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for multiple other residential and commercial waste disposal jobs.
What size roll-on roll-off skips do you offer?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial industrial size skips that are used predominantly within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for companies that produce significant amounts of waste.
Where does my waste go when the skip is picked up?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into the various waste streams, like timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can generally keep the skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of offering a preferred collection time when making your order.
Alternatively, just let us know when you have finished with your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in many cases, it will be the following working day.
It might take a little while longer to collect your skip over busy times, but we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.
What sort of rubbish am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?
You may use your skip to throw out a variety of waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and handling a multitude of items produced from construction work, garden projects and home clearances. A few examples of permitted waste materials include:
- Hedge trimmings
- Bathroom sinks
- Cabinets and units
Many different waste types are usually allowed, and therefore whether you want to dispose of metals, plastics, timber or unwanted toys, we can normally take your waste away.
The quantity and things you throw in your skip will vary depending on the size skip you have hired. All skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you want to discard garden soil and concrete, for example, the largest size container you would be permitted to use would be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?
There are a few waste materials that you are not permitted to get rid of in your skip. The reason for this is that these items contain hazardous elements which could be damaging to the environment. They can also be dangerous to human health, so they have to be discarded separately within UK legislation.
A few of the goods that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- Computer screens
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Electric powered objects including televisions, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore cannot be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electrical goods need to be segregated from other waste. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

Then you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then prepare to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Kettering?
This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only require a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if your skip is on private property, like a drive or within your business premises.
Should you need to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us during the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can place your skip on your own property, you will save a few pounds.
Can I pile up waste in my skip?
You must not fill up the skip beyond the level load line. If you load it over the tip of this mark, it means that the skip is not safe to move, and you could be asked to remove any excess waste prior to it being picked up.
Other areas covered include Burton Latimer, Oundle, Towcester, Higham Ferrers, Desborough, Brackley, Thrapston and Irthlingborough.
