Will a Leiston skip hire company deliver my skip?
We utilise a network of both regional and national skip hire firms to deliver skips to our clients in Leiston and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner skip hire providers are verified and evaluated to guarantee they meet our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.
Will my skip come with a drop down door?
Using a skip with a drop down door helps make loading waste into the skip so much easier. This is especially true with heavy waste materials such as soil and rubble, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away big bulky items like furniture easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, however it will sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.
How can I order a skip in Leiston?
This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip shall be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on public property (such as the road). Then, choose the date you would like your skip to be delivered. Check your order details and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. That’s it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Leiston on the day you have selected.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The term stems from the fact that these are the most typical sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are ideal for numerous household and industrial tasks. These are the largest skips that can be used for weighty builders waste such as dirt, stone and bricks.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is delivered?
You don’t have to be at your property when your skip is delivered, however it does help. Being there when your skip is being delivered means you can ensure the driver is given complete access and that your skip can be positioned exactly where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is being delivered to business property, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, for those who can’t be around during the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to let us know when you place the order, and we will arrange things from there.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can usually deliver skips to Leiston the following working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking platform will give you a number of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you want the skip delivered ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
What is the cost of skip hire in Leiston?
To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Leiston, enter your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you the skip sizes we provide in your area and how much each size costs to order. If the skip will be on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.
Am I allowed to load my skip above level load line?
It is essential to never overload the skip. You can not pass the level load line that is shown on the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it can be very dangerous to move. Which means that if you overload the skip, you may be required to remove the surplus rubbish. Regardless of how safe you think the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This can be dangerous and is therefore prohibited.
How long can I hire the skip for?
Normally, you can keep a skip for a maximum of two week. This means you don’t need to rush through your project. If 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 on our website, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Leiston?
Ideally, you should have the skip left on to a hard surface. When you are carrying out a household project, then the drive will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public land, you need to have a permit from your local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be located on the street, grass verge or other public property in Leiston. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be issued on your behalf. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
After you have finished filling up your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Leiston where we separate the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
How large is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a large skip that can be used to dispose of large quantities of rubbish. These skips are mainly for industrial use but can be used by household clients as well. However, you will need lots of space since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger when compared to the typical skip you will likely see on the side of the road.
Due to the size, RORO skips can only be hired for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and bricks.
Will you deliver skips across Suffolk?
In addition to delivering our range of skips to Leiston, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Suffolk. With the help of our network of regional and national skip hire and recycling businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering in Leiston, Mildenhall or Ipswich, we have got you covered.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip delivered by skip companies and is perfect for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip firms provide a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Can I put electronic products in my skip?
Unfortunately it is not permitted, because electrical products like old TVs, freezers, pcs and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items have to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly manner.
What waste materials am I allowed to put in the skip?
It is possible to throw a wide array of waste types into your skip. This includes timber, bathroom tiles, metal or rubble from a house clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, dirt and rock from garden work is allowed as well. Dated units from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also go in your skip.
However, there are a few items that can’t be put in a skip due to the potential environment or health risk they may trigger.
You can’t throw in your fridge, laptop or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things contain hazardous elements in one type or another. They need to be disposed of separately from general waste.
Should you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to arrange a separate collection for this material. Feel free to email for further information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
