Kidlington Skip Hire FAQs
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a massive container that can be used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These skips are predominantly for business use but can be hired by residential customers too. Having said that, you need a good amount of space as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger when compared to the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, these containers should only be provided for light-weight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and bricks.
What is a builder’s skip?
The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These will be the biggest skips that can be hired to get rid of weighty building and construction waste such as rock, bricks, rubble or garden soil.
A builder’s skip is great for a number of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning the loft space, these big containers will often be the most affordable choice available.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
You can normally keep a skip for up to 14 days from the day that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, there is the option of offering a preferred collection day when placing your order.
Alternatively, simply tell us when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the next working day.
It can take a little longer to collect your skip over busy periods, however we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Kidlington?
This will depend on the skip size you will need and whether you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the cheapest option. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in business settings.

What size is the mini skip?
If you are looking for a cheap skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to tackle many jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be located on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.
Although most often hired by household customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.
Am I able to put all kinds of waste in a skip?
Prior to ordering your skip, it is essential to ensure that the sort of rubbish you wish to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials must be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you may throw in your skip include household items like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You can also use a skip to throw out building and construction rubbish, including timber, dirt, rubble, metals and gravel.
Some examples of forbidden items include things like electronic products, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore must be discarded separately from your general waste.
How many different skip sizes are available?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Kidlington, you have numerous sizes to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, also known as a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for small domestic clearances and DIY work.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their substantial capacity also makes them well suited for house tidy ups including large items such as furniture and beds.
We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for those with even bigger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only suitable for lightweight materials, so they can’t be used to dispose of soil or concrete.
For further information regarding the different sizes offered, such as dimensions, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Kidlington?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need the skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or house, you must receive permission from the local authority in Kidlington, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we will gladly arrange this for you, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council will charge a fee for your skip permit, and you should know before placing your order that securing the licence can often take up to 2 working days.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will arrive, we strive to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery position, as failed deliveries can result in a fee for the wasted journey.
Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?
Virtually all skips can be provided with a drop door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the skip, particularly with heavy materials, such as dirt and concrete, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky items, such as furniture.
Can I load up my skip above level load mark?
It is important not to overfill a skip, as you risk being required to remove excess waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of the size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, because moving an overloaded container is unsafe, as objects could drop and cause injury or damage to others.
To avoid this problem, please be sure you order a size suited to your waste removal needs. If your skip is full but you have some more waste to get rid of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
No, you do not have to be at home when we are delivering your skip. As long as we are able to gain access to the place you want it delivered, we can take care of everything.
When you are not likely to be in, simply let us have any relevant delivery instructions when placing the order. For instance, you might want the skip to be located on a particular part of your driveway. Alternatively, you may want to make sure the skip doesn’t prevent entry to your garage.
No matter what the case may be, provide the details when you place your order, and then we will make sure the directions are passed to the delivery driver.
How can I order a skip in Kidlington?
This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you would like to hire. Let us know whether the skip will be going on private property (a drive, for example) or local authority property (such as the road). Next, select the day you would like the skip to be delivered. Check your order and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. That’s it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Kidlington on the date you have selected.
Will you deliver to other areas in Oxfordshire?
Yes, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer skips to locations across Oxfordshire, such as Kidlington, Didcot, Banbury and Abingdon-on-Thames. So regardless of where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
What will happen to the rubbish?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into the different waste materials, such as timber, metals, paper, etc. This makes sure that as much of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Kidlington. We work with a network of both regional and national providers to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These firms are thoroughly assessed to guarantee they meet the high expectations we require with regards to customer service, cost and environmental performance.
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, since electrical products including old TVs, fridges, computers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.
