It could take a little longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, however we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container used to transport significant quantities of waste. Primarily, these type of containers are used for business purposes. However, household customers may also use them. You should look at the area they occupy, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of dirt and rubble.

How can I order a skip?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us if the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or council property (like the road). Next, select the day you would like the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Lechlade-on-Thames on the date you have chosen.

What kinds of rubbish can you throw in a skip?

Prior to hiring your skip, it is essential to make sure that the sort of waste you want to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Some examples of waste types you are able to throw in a skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use your skip to discard building and construction rubbish, such as wood, soil, rubble, metals and gravel.

Some examples of restricted items include electronic items, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials and therefore have to be discarded separately from your general waste.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?

Unfortunately not, because electrical items including old TVs, freezers, printers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly manner.

Will a skip hire company from Lechlade-on-Thames deliver my skip?

To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a number of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to make sure we can provide customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.

Is it possible to have a skip with a drop down door?

The vast majority of containers can be delivered with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the skip, especially with heavy materials, like garden soil and bricks, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, like household furniture.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?

No, you don’t have to be home when we are delivering the skip. So long as we can access where you want it positioned, we will manage everything.

When you are not going to be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when booking your order. For example, you might need the skip to be located at a particular side of your driveway. Or you may want to make sure the skip does not hinder access to your garage.

No matter what the situation may be, provide the details when ordering, and then we will ensure your instructions will be passed on to the lorry driver.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builders skip means the size of skip most frequently hired for building and construction projects. There are generally two different skip sizes which can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which you can use to get rid of substantial quantities of building and demolition waste materials, such as garden soil, concrete and rock.

Although branded a builders skip, they can of course be used for many other domestic and business waste disposal jobs.

Can I load up the skip above the top?

It is important to not overload a skip, as you risk being asked to take off excess waste before it can be collected. Whatever size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, since moving an overloaded container is hazardous, as materials could drop and cause personal injury or damage to other people.

To avoid this issue, please be sure you order a size suitable for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have further waste to get rid of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.

How much waste can a mini skip hold?

For those who have a small quantity of waste to dispose of, a mini skip could be the best choice. What size is known as a mini skip is different from business to business, based on what sizes they supply.

2 cubic yards is considered the most common size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 yard container as their smallest option. Cost is based on the actual size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are fantastic for domestic jobs like small DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

How long does it take to get a skip in Lechlade-on-Thames?

We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you complete your booking prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will normally have your skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver, we try to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we request is that you make sure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery position, as failed deliveries will result in a fee for a wasted journey.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Lechlade-on-Thames?

This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a permit when it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit when your skip will be on your private property, such as a drive or on your business premises.

If you have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, and then we can make the required arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position your skip on your own property, you will save a few pounds.

What happens to the rubbish once the skip is picked up?

Once you have finished with your skip, we come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility either in or local to Lechlade-on-Thames where we sort the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

Other areas covered include Tewkesbury, Cheltenham, Newent, Wotton-under-Edge, Cinderford, Bradley Stoke, Chipping Campden and Stonehouse.
