Liskeard Skip Hire FAQs
Is it possible to have a skip that has a drop door?
Nearly all skips can be delivered with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.
A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the skip, particularly with weighty materials, such as dirt and bricks, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in big and bulky items, such as furniture.
Am I allowed to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
Electric powered items such as television sets, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous waste and so cannot be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic goods have to be separated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.
What is a builder’s skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The name comes from the fact that these are the most typical sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are great for a wide variety of residential and industrial projects. They are the biggest skips that you can use for heavy builders waste such as dirt, rubble and bricks.
Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Liskeard?
If possible, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface. When you are doing a household task, then a drive is going to be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public land, you need to obtain a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be placed on a road, grass verge or other public property in Liskeard. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be issued on your behalf. An additional cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
What can I put in my skip?
This is one of the most popular questions people have about our service. The main thing to keep in mind is that you can fill up your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of waste that can result from garden work, construction work and house clearances.
Some of the most typical things that we find in skips include dirt, wood, tree cuttings, cabinets, bathroom suites, as well as other household items.
There are some materials that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This can include any electronic products (fridge freezers, televisions or washing machines for example), old tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. They are all deemed hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them has to adhere to a completely different process to make sure they don’t result in harm to the environment.
Will a Liskeard skip hire company deliver my skip?
Since we provide a nationwide waste management service, we utilise a diverse network of approved companies. These can include small family-run skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental expectations.
Is it ok to stack up waste in my skip?
It is vital to not overfill the skip. You should not pass the level load mark shown on the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it can be very hazardous to transport. This means that if you overload the skip, you may be required to remove the surplus rubbish. No matter how safe you believe the skip to be, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be unsafe and is not allowed.

How do you order a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us if the skip will be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (like the road). Next, select the date you want the skip to get delivered. Check your order details and then make payment using our secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Liskeard on the day you have chosen.
What happens to the waste?
The contents of your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer centre. Here the waste will be segregated by machinery and also by hand into various waste streams, like metal, plastics, concrete and wood. Sorting the waste in this way helps to maximise the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
Normally, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a large container that is used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These skips are predominantly for commercial use but can be used by domestic customers too. However, you will require plenty of space because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger than the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, RORO skips should only be provided for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and bricks.
How quick can you deliver a skip to Liskeard?
If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we can even offer a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed as part of the order process.
Do I have to be home when the skip will be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be in on the day the skip is delivered. You can then make sure the lorry has full access and that the skip will be situated exactly where you need it. This also is true when you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates restrict access.
On the other hand, if this isn’t achievable, you do not have to stress. Simply tell us when placing your order, and then we will handle everything.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
We offer a full-range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip great for modest DIY projects and domestic clearances. A common option for more substantial jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Liskeard businesses which produce a large quantity of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.
