Loddon Skip Hire FAQs

Am I allowed to pile up the waste in my skip?

Unfortunately not. You must only pack the skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste materials up over this line makes it dangerous to transport, and you could be asked to get rid of the excess waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.

How can I hire a skip?

Hiring a skip in Loddon with us is incredibly simple. Choose the skip size you need and input a handful of details about where and when you need your skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then schedule to have your skip delivered.

What size skips can you provide?

Skips come in a variety of sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small residential projects.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a fantastic option for garden shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial waste disposal job to sort out, a builder’s skip may be the smartest choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title implies, these are the most popular sizes hired by builders for construction waste, such as soil and rubble. However they can equally well be used for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.

We also offer 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For more information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What things can I put in my skip?

This is among the most common questions people have about our service. The main thing to consider is that you can fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of rubbish that could result from garden projects, construction work and house clearances.

Some of the most typical things that we pick up in skips include soil, timber, bush cuttings, kitchen cabinets, baths, and various other household objects.

However, there are some items that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. For example, any electrical goods (fridges, TVs or cookers for example), old tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all deemed hazardous waste, and therefore getting rid of them needs to follow a completely different process to make sure they do not cause damage to the environment.

What is classed as being a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most frequently hired for building work. There are generally two different skip sizes that can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to get rid of significant quantities of building and demolition waste, such as dirt, concrete and rock.

Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, they can be used for a number of other residential and business waste disposal jobs.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

The regular hire term will be two weeks from your date of delivery. However, when you book the skip, you can provide a collection date that will work for you. Of course, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is loaded earlier than anticipated, contact us, and we will get it collected at the earliest opportunity.

We will usually make collections within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to remember that this may not always be possible during busier times. Once collected, the skip will be transported to your local waste recycling facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Do I have to be there whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

You don’t have to be at your property when your skip is being delivered, but it can help. Being home when the skip is being delivered means that you can make sure the lorry driver can be given full access and that the skip can be dropped exactly where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is being delivered to company property, we will appreciate your support during the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

However, in the event you can’t be available for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask that you let us know when you place your order, and then we will organise everything from there.

Do you deliver skips across Norfolk?

We provide a national skip hire and waste management service using a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Loddon, Swaffham, Aylsham, Downham Market or another location in Norfolk, we are able to help.

How much waste will fit in a mini skip?

For those who have a small quantity of waste to dispose of, a mini skip might be the best option. What size is called a mini skip differs from business to business, based on what sizes they have.

2 cubic yards is the most common size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. The cost is based on the particular size you order, instead of the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are good for residential work like small DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

Will a skip hire company from Loddon deliver my skip?

To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work together with a number of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we can offer customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Loddon?

If possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface area. For anybody who is doing a domestic project, then a drive is going to be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. However, if neither is available, the road or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public property, you need to obtain a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be positioned on the street, grass verge or any other public property in Loddon. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be granted for you. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.

When will my skip be delivered?

We can in most cases supply skips to Loddon the next working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our online booking platform gives you a number of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you need a skip delivered asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.

Am I allowed to throw electrical items in the skip?

Electrical objects like television sets, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste and therefore should not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electrical items have to be separated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into a number of waste streams, which includes timber, metals and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to dispose of huge quantities of waste. Primarily, these type of skips are used for business applications. Having said that, residential customers may also use them. It is important to take into account the space they take up, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be hired for light-weight waste including paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of dirt and rubble.

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

The price of hiring a skip in Loddon is determined by the size of skip you require. The least expensive skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and clearances. If you require a bigger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also increase if you want to have your skip on the highway, because you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Is it possible to have a skip that has a drop down door?

For anyone who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is designed for disposing of heavy building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop door, however these are typically more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are generally low enough on 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 ordering. We will do our best to make sure a skip with a drop door is provided.

Other areas covered include Swaffham, Aylsham, Downham Market, Gorleston-on-Sea, King’s Lynn, Sheringham, Hunstanton and Hingham.
