Langport Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will have to remove any materials above the level load mark. This also means that you are unable to use sheets of wood, doors or some other object, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal obligation to make sure that containers are not overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure you select the correct sized skip to meet your requirements and get in contact if you’re not sure which size you require. We will be happy to help.
What happens to the rubbish?
The materials in your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer station. Here the rubbish will be separated by machinery and also by hand into different waste materials, like soil, paper, hardcore and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.
How large is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available from skip firms and is good for smaller DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms offer a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Do I need to be there when the skip is due to be delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be in when anybody delivers anything to your home. You can then ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed precisely where you want it.
The same applies for those who have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
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.
How do you hire a skip?
We have created our online booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. The first step is to type in your address to check out the range of skip sizes we are able to provide in Langport.

After that you can make payment with our secure payment platform, and we’ll send an email to verify your order once your booking is complete!
Do you use local skip hire companies in Langport?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a variety of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to make sure we can provide customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.
What size skips have got a drop door?
Having a skip that has a drop down door helps make filling waste into it so much easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste like dirt and stone, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading big bulky items such as pieces of furniture a lot easier too.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, but this may sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when making your booking if a door is required, and we will do our very best to supply this.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you have asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your booking before 3pm on a 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 you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery spot, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will result in a fee for the wasted trip.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
You can generally hire a skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, you have the choice of giving a preferred collection date when you place your order.
Alternatively, simply let us know when you have 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 could take a bit longer to collect your skip during busy periods, but we will always endeavour to come as quickly as possible.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The term builder’s skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. The label originates from the fact that these are the most typical sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are fantastic for a multitude of domestic and business jobs. These are the largest size skips which you can use for weighty builders waste such as dirt, stone and gravel.
What size skips can you supply?
Skips are available in a wide range of 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 can hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is good for small household projects.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is an excellent choice for garage clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
If you have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to undertake, a builder’s skip may be the smartest choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name suggests, these are the most common sizes ordered by builders for building waste, like soil and rubble. But they can just as well be used for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen units.
We also offer 10-16 cubic yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For additional information about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Langport?
If possible, you should have the skip left on a hard surface area. If you are carrying out a residential project, then the drive will be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. On the other hand, when neither is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public land, you will have to obtain a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be placed on a street, grass verge or other public property in Langport. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be issued for you. An extra fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your skip.
Can I get rid of electrical items in my skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, as electronic items like old TVs, fridge freezers, pcs and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects must be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly way.
How much will skip hire in Langport cost?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Langport, enter your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display which sizes we provide in your area and how much each size costs to order. If your skip is going on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large industrial scale skips used mainly within the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for organisations that generate significant amounts of waste materials.
What types of waste materials can I put in my skip?
You may use a skip to get rid of a variety of waste materials. We are used to collecting and processing a wide variety of items produced from building work, garden projects and home clearances. Some examples of allowed waste materials include things like:
- Tree trimmings
- Top soil
- Bricks and rubble
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Many different waste types are generally allowed, and therefore whether you would like to discard metals, plastic materials, timber or fabric, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The volume and things you throw into your skip can vary based on the size skip you hired. Skips do have a weight limit for safety purposes. So if you need to discard soil and rubble, as an example, the biggest size you would be allowed to hire would be the 8 cubic yard skip.
Are there items which I can’t discard in the skip?
There are a few waste items that you are not able to throw out in the skip. The main reason for this is that these products include hazardous materials which could harm the environment. They can even be hazardous to human health, therefore they need to be discarded separately within UK legislation.
Examples of the items that are restricted include:
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- Computer monitors
- Battery packs
