Keynsham Skip Hire FAQs
If I require a skip on the road in Keynsham, will I need a permit?
Ideally, you should have the skip left on a hard surface area. If you are doing a household task, then your drive will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, if neither is available, the road or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public land, you have got to get a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be positioned on the street, grass verge or any other public property in Keynsham. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be granted on your behalf. An extra fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
Where will the waste go once the skip is collected?
When you have finished filling up your skip, we come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling station in or local to Keynsham where we sort the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available from skip firms and is designed for small DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies will offer a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
Will you deliver to other areas in Somerset?
Along with delivering skips and containers to Keynsham, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Somerset. By utilising our network of regional and national skip hire and recycling businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to Keynsham, Castle Cary or Dulverton, we have got you covered.
What is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These are the biggest containers that can be hired to discard heavy construction waste such as stone, concrete, rubble or soil.
A builders skip is ideal for a wide range of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing the loft, these substantial containers will often be the most affordable solution available.
Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?
It usually is best if you can be in when anybody delivers anything to your property. That allows you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be dropped just where you need it.
The same goes for those who have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.
Am I allowed to fill my skip above the side?
You must not fill the skip past the level load mark. When you fill it up over the tip of this mark, it means that your skip will not be safe and secure to move, and you can be asked to take off any excess rubbish before it can be collected.
How do I order a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you wish to hire. Tell us whether the skip is going to be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or public property (such as the road). Next, pick the day you want the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Keynsham on the day you have selected.
What size skips will have a door?
For anybody who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is great for getting rid of hefty building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop down door, although they are less common. The reason being these sizes are generally small enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our very best to ensure a container that has a drop door is provided.
Am I able to get rid of electrical items in my skip?
No, you can not dispose of old or broken electronic waste items in your skip. This includes such things as laptops, microwaves, washing machines, refrigerators and computer monitors. Electric products can’t be disposed of in a skip as they can include dangerous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
How long can I hire the skip for?
You can normally keep a skip for up to 14 days from your delivery date. You may give a preferred pick up date when you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us once you have finished with the skip, and we will organise your collection. Normally, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer during busy periods.
How many different skip sizes are there?
Skips are available in a wide range of different sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small residential projects.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold around 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent option for shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
If you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to tackle, a builder’s skip could be the most suitable choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name implies, these represent the most frequent sizes used by builders for construction waste, such as soil and hardcore. However they can equally well be hired for household waste such as old furniture or kitchen units.
We also provide 10-16 cubic yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For further information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
What size roll-on roll-off skips are available?
If you manage a business in Keynsham and need to get rid of large quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that are available.
As the label suggests, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike standard skips, that are picked up by using chains.
What sort of rubbish can I get rid of in a skip?
You can fill your skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from home clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, top soil, rubble, hedge trimmings, furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you throw in the skip would depend on the skip size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, in the event that you are using the skip for heavy construction wastes including stone or dirt, the biggest size you would be able to hire is the 8 yard skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in your skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Keynsham?
