Kington Skip Hire FAQs
How do you hire a skip in Kington?
This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you would like to hire. Tell us if the skip is going to be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on local authority property (like the street). After that, select the date you need your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. That is it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Kington on the date you have chosen.
Is it ok to load my skip above the top?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it unsafe to transport, and you will be asked to remove any materials above the level load line. This also means that you are not allowed to make use of sheets of wood, doors or any other item, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal obligation to make sure that skips are not overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please be sure you hire the appropriate size of skip to meet your needs and get in touch if you’re uncertain which size is best. We will be glad to help.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
Normally, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you do not need to rush through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a huge container that is used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These skips are predominantly for business use but can be used by residential clients also. However, you should have plenty of room as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger when compared to the typical skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.
As a result of the size, these containers should only be hired for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and bricks.
Will you deliver skips across Herefordshire?
Absolutely. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to deliver skips to both residential and business customers across Herefordshire and anywhere else in the UK.
Should I be in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t have to be at home when your skip is being delivered, however it does help. Being in when the skip is being delivered means you can ensure the lorry driver can be given complete access and that your skip is positioned precisely where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is being delivered to a business premises, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, in the event you can’t be available at the time of delivery, don’t worry. We just ask you to tell us when you book your order, and we will organise everything from there.
What size skips can you offer?
We provide a full-range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip perfect for small DIY tasks and household clearances. A common option for larger sized tasks, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Kington companies which generate a significant amount of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How big is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip available from skip companies and is ideal for small DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies will offer a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Kington?
Our goal is to offer the lowest priced skip hire service in Kington. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip that you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you need to have a skip placed on the highway or other council property, you will also need to factor in the additional expense of the skip permit.
Will a skip hire company from Kington deliver my skip?
To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work together with a number of local and national companies. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
If I want a skip on a road in Kington, will I need to have a permit?
Ideally, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface area. When you are carrying out a household task, then a driveway will be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. However, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public property, you need to have a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be positioned on a street, grass verge or other public property in Kington. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be granted on your behalf. An extra charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
Will the skip have a drop door?
Getting a skip with a drop door helps make filling rubbish into the skip so much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste materials like soil or rubble, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of big bulky items such as furniture a lot easier also.
The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, however it will sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the biggest containers that can be hired to dispose of weighty building and demolition waste such as stone, bricks, gravel or garden soil.
A builders skip is ideal for a number of projects. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or cleaning out the garage, these large containers are usually the most affordable solution available.
Where will the rubbish go once the skip is collected?
After you have finished with your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility in or local to Kington where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in the skip?
You are allowed to load the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from loft clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include wood, dirt, concrete, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip depends on which size you have ordered, as there is a weight restriction. For example, when you are using a skip for heavy building waste including rubble or top soil, the biggest size you could use is an 8 cubic yard.
Some materials should not be disposed of in a skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can usually supply skips to Kington the next working day when an order is made before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking platform provides you with a number of delivery dates to select from. So whether you want a skip delivered ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
Am I able to throw electrical items in the skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, since electrical items including old TVs, fridges, printers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly manner.
