Ledbury Skip Hire FAQs
Will a skip hire company from Ledbury deliver my skip?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work with a wide range of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to provide customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.
Am I able to get a skip that has a drop door?
Virtually all containers can be supplied with a drop down door, making them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the container, especially with weighty materials, such as soil and bricks, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, like furniture.
Am I able to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old electrical waste items in a skip. This can include things like computers, hobs, washing machines, fridges and television sets. Electrical items can’t be discarded in a skip as they can have dangerous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.
When will my skip be delivered?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We will usually provide a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, as to be on public property (for example a highway), you will need to get a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of many factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it turning up within a AM or PM slot.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Ledbury, you have various sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for small household clearances and DIY work.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most common sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also makes them ideal for household clearances including bulky objects like furniture and beds.
We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These sizes are only appropriate for light materials, so they cannot be hired to get rid of soil or concrete.
To get more information regarding the various skip sizes offered, including dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be there at the time it is delivered. You can then be sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip can be located exactly where you need it. This also applies if you have a skip delivered to company property, particularly when gates restrict access.
Having said that, when this isn’t achievable, you don’t need to worry. Just tell us when you are placing your order, and we will take care of everything.
How do I order a skip in Ledbury?
We have built our online booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. The first task is to enter your address to see all the different skip sizes we can deliver in Ledbury. Select the best size to meet your requirements and provide the details of where and when you need the skip delivered. After that you can make payment with the secure payment system, and we will send an email to confirm your order as soon as your order is done!
What will happen to the waste?
The rubbish in the skip will be taken to the local waste recycling facility. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machinery and also by hand into different waste streams, such as soil, plastics, hardcore and wood. Processing the waste in this manner helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
You can normally keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you have the option of offering a preferred collection day when placing your order.
Alternatively, just tell us when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It may take a little while longer to pick up your skip during busy times, but we will always endeavour to be there as quickly as possible.
Will you deliver to other areas in Herefordshire?
Yes. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we can deliver skips to household and business customers throughout Herefordshire and anywhere else in the UK.
What size is a builder’s skip?
A builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These are the largest containers that can be used to dispose of heavy building and construction waste materials such as stone, concrete, rubble or dirt.
A builders skip is ideal for a wide array of jobs. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or cleaning out your garden shed, these big skips will often be the most affordable solution available.
Is it ok to fill the skip higher than level load line?
It is important to not overfill your skip, as you run the risk of being told to remove excess waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of what size you order, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since moving an overloaded container can be hazardous, as materials could fall and lead to injury or damage to other people.
To prevent this problem, please be sure to order a skip size suitable for your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full but you have extra rubbish to dispose of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
How much will skip hire in Ledbury cost?
The price of hiring a skip in Ledbury will depend on the size of skip you want. The lowest priced option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you require a bigger skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you need to have a skip placed on the highway, because you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are perfect for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furnishings and broken toys to paving slabs and rubble. Having a total capacity of approximately 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you needing to make numerous trips to your local recycling centre.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?
The roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a huge skip that can be used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are mainly for business use but can be used by residential clients too. However, you need a lot of space because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger when compared to the typical skip you will likely see on the side of the road.
As a result of the size, roro containers should only be hired for light materials like plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and bricks.
Am I allowed to dispose of all kinds of waste in my skip?
It is possible to fill up your skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly generated from loft clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, dirt, concrete, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you throw in your skip depends on the size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, if you will be using a skip for heavy building wastes such as rubble or dirt, the biggest size you could get is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials cannot be discarded in the skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Ledbury?
Generally, it will be possible to have your skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to do this, you must have permission from the local council in Ledbury, which is called a skip permit. We will organise this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for the license, and it may sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
