Lincoln Skip Hire FAQs

Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Lincoln?

In most cases, it is possible to have your skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to get this done, you will need to get consent from your local authority in Lincoln, which is known as a skip permit. We will organise this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for your license, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

What will happen to the rubbish?

Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into different waste streams, like wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Do I have to be home when the skip will be delivered?

You don’t have to be home when your skip will be delivered, however it will help. Being in when your skip is due for delivery means that you can ensure the lorry is given full access and that your skip can be located exactly where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is delivered to business property, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.

Even so, when you can’t be around during the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place your order, and we will organise things from there.

Is it ok to load my skip higher than level load mark?

It is important never to overload a skip, as you run the risk of being asked to remove excess waste before it can be picked up. Irrespective of what size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since transporting an overloaded skip can be hazardous, as waste could drop and result in injury or damage to others.

To prevent this issue, please be sure to hire a skip size suitable for your waste removal needs. If your skip is full but you have some further waste to dispose of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.

How quick can you deliver a skip to Lincoln?

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 have asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you confirm your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery spot, as unsuccessful deliveries can lead to a charge for a wasted journey.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Lincoln?

Our goal is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Lincoln. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have the skip positioned on the highway or other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the extra expense of a skip permit.

Am I able to throw electronic products in my skip?

Electrical products including TVs, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous waste type and so cannot be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic goods have to be separated from other rubbish. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a number of sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small residential tasks.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold around 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a fantastic choice for garden shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial waste disposal task to deal with, the builder’s skip could be the best choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label implies, these represent the most popular sizes hired by builders for building waste, like clay and hardcore. However they can just as well be used for domestic waste such as old furniture or kitchen units.

We also supply 10-16 cubic yard skips and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?

When you have a small amount of rubbish to dispose of, the mini skip might be the perfect solution. What size is called a mini skip differs from business to business, depending on what sizes they supply.

The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to have a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The price depends on the actual size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are ideal for residential jobs like modest DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

Shrub and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden tasks are allowed as well. Cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be thrown in the skip.

There are, however, some materials that you cannot put in a skip because of the potential ecological or health risks they might trigger.

You can’t throw out your fridge, television or old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things include hazardous components in one form or another. They should be discarded separately from your normal waste.

Should you require hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to schedule an independent service for this material. Please email for further details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling centre.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

For anybody who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is great for getting rid of heavy building and construction materials, as it can be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop-down door, however they are less common. The reason being these sizes are typically low enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you want a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to make sure a container which has a drop door is provided.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container that can be used to dispose of huge quantities of waste materials. In most cases, these skips are hired for commercial purposes. However, domestic customers may also order them. It is very important think about the area they take up, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they must only be hired for light-weight waste such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of garden soil and concrete.

How long can I keep a skip for?

You can usually hire your skip for up to a fortnight from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of providing a preferred collection date when you make your order.

Alternatively, just tell us when you’ve finished loading up your skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the next working day.
