Kingsteignton Skip Hire FAQs
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Kingsteignton?
This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only require a permit when it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit if your skip is on private property, such as a drive or inside your business premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, so we can make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place your skip on private property, you will save some pounds.
What is the cost of skip hire in Kingsteignton?
The price of hiring a skip in Kingsteignton is determined by the size of skip you need. The cheapest skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you want a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you need to have the skip on the highway, as you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Am I allowed to fill the skip above the level load mark?
No. You are only allowed to fill the skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste up over this line would make it dangerous to transport, and you can be told to remove the excess waste before your skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are huge industrial size skips that are used mainly within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for organisations that produce large amounts of waste materials.
How many different skip sizes are there?
Skips come in a variety of different sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small residential projects.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a great choice for shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more substantial waste disposal job to tackle, the builder’s skip may be the most suitable choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title indicates, these represent the most typical sizes used by builders for building waste, like clay and hardcore. However they can equally well be hired for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We also offer 10-16 cubic yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For additional info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
Should I be in when the skip is delivered?
It is always best if you can be available when anyone delivers something to your property. That allows you to ensure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be placed exactly where you need it.
The same goes for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.
However, when it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
Who will deliver my skip?
Since we offer a UK-wide skip service, we use a diverse network of verified and approved businesses. These vary from small family-run skip hire companies to national waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can typically supply skips to Kingsteignton the next working day when an order is made before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking program gives you a variety of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you want the skip to arrive ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
Am I allowed to throw electrical items in the skip?
No, you cannot throw old or broken electrical waste items in a skip. This can include things such as laptops, hobs, tumble dryers, fridges and television sets. Electronic items can’t be discarded in the skip as they can contain hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.
What happens to the rubbish when the skip is collected?
When you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Kingsteignton where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
How long can I hire a skip for?
You can usually hire your skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, there is the choice of offering a preferred collection date when you place your order.
Alternatively, just let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It may take a little longer to pick up your skip over busy times, but we will always try to come as quickly as possible.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The label comes from the fact that these are the most common sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are ideal for a multitude of residential and industrial tasks. They are the biggest size skips which you can use for hefty builders waste such as dirt, stone and bricks.
What types of waste materials can I put in the skip?
It is possible to load your skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from garage clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, dirt, bricks, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in your skip depends on which skip size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, if you are using your skip for heavy building waste like stone or soil, the largest size you can get is an 8 yard skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in the skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.
How big is the mini skip?
When you have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, a mini skip might be the best option. What size is described as a mini skip is different from company to company, depending on what sizes they offer.
2 cubic yards is the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to have a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. Cost is based on the actual size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for household tasks like modest DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
Will you deliver to other areas in Devon?
Certainly, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skip sizes to areas across Devon, including Kingsteignton, Crediton, Braunton and Holsworthy. So no matter where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Is it possible to get a skip with a drop down door?
The majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, making them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the bin, especially with heavy materials, such as garden soil and concrete, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky objects, like household furniture.
