Kidsgrove Skip Hire FAQs
What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?
If you have a company in Kidsgrove and wish to get rid of substantial quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container could be a great choice. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips on the market.
As the name indicates, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, in contrast to regular skips, which are lifted using chains.
What is the size of a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most commonly used for construction projects. There are usually two sizes which can be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which can be used to get rid of significant amounts of construction and demolition materials, like soil, concrete and stone.
Even though they are branded a builders skip, these can be used for many other domestic and industrial waste disposal tasks.
What sizes do skips come in?
We are able to offer a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip best for modest DIY jobs and household clearances. A popular choice for larger sized jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Kidsgrove businesses which produce a large volume of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Will a Kidsgrove skip hire company deliver my skip?
Since we offer a nationwide waste management service, we use a diverse network of verified and approved companies. These vary from small family-run skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.
Can I pile up waste in my skip?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it dangerous to transport, and you will then have to remove any contents above the level load mark. This also means you are not allowed to make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other object, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal responsibility to make sure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure that you hire the correct sized skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you’re not sure which size you need. We would be glad to help.
Do I need to be home when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t need to be at your property when your skip will be delivered, however it does help. Being there whenever the skip arrives means that you can make sure the lorry driver is given complete access and that your skip is positioned precisely where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is being delivered to your company premises, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Even so, when you can’t be available during the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you book your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.
Which skip sizes have got a drop door?
Typically, almost all skips can be provided with a hinged door, depending on skip size, availability and location. If you require a drop down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip that has a drop door is primarily helpful if you are hiring a big builder’s skip, as it allows you to wheelbarrow waste materials straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini skips, as they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What sort of rubbish can I dispose of in a skip?
This is one of the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. The most important thing to remember is that you may fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are lots of types of waste that may come from garden projects, building work and property clearances.
Among the most typical things which we pick up in skips include soil, timber, bush trimmings, kitchen units, sinks, as well as other household objects.
There are some waste materials that you are not allowed to put in the skip. This can include any electrical goods (fridges, TVs or washing machines for example), old tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and so getting rid of them needs to follow a completely different process to make sure they don’t cause damage to the environment.
Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?
Unfortunately it is not permitted, because electronic items like old TVs, freezers, pcs and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects need to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly fashion.
Can you deliver to other areas in Staffordshire?
Absolutely. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to deliver skips to domestic and business customers across Staffordshire and anywhere else within the UK.

If I would like a skip on the road in Kidsgrove, will I need a permit?
If possible, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. If you are doing a household job, then the driveway will be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, if neither is available, the road or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public property, you need to obtain a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be dropped on a street, grass verge or any other public property in Kidsgrove. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be issued for you. An extra cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Kidsgrove?
The price of getting a skip in Kidsgrove will depend on the size of skip you want. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you require a larger sized skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The cost will also be more if you want to have your skip positioned on the road, as you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
What happens to my rubbish when the skip is collected?
When you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste recycling station either in or local to Kidsgrove where we will sort the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
What size is a mini skip?
For those who have a small amount of waste to throw out, the mini skip might be the ideal choice. What size is referred to as a mini skip is different from company to company, according to what sizes they offer.
The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to have a 3 cubic yard skip for their smallest option. The price is dependent on the specific size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for household tasks including small DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
How long will it take to get a skip in Kidsgrove?
We can usually deliver skips to Kidsgrove the following working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking system will give you a variety of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you want the skip delivered asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
Generally, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t have to hurry through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
