Long Eaton Skip Hire FAQs
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Long Eaton?
Preferably, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface area. When you are carrying out a domestic job, then a driveway is going to be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public property, you need to obtain a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be positioned on the street, grass verge or other public property in Long Eaton. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be issued on your behalf. An extra charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
Do you deliver skips across Derbyshire?
We offer a nationwide skip hire and recycling service using a network of verified and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you want skip hire in Long Eaton, Wirksworth, Bolsover, Sandiacre or another location in Derbyshire, we can assist.
How much will skip hire in Long Eaton cost?
This will depend on the skip size you want and whether you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the lowest priced option. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in business settings.

How long can I hire the skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to 14 days. In most cases, this provides you with sufficient time to load your skip. However, if you need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, should you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just tell us once you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
The mini skip will be the most compact size provided by skip companies and is good for small DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip firms will offer a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
Can I have a skip that has a drop down door?
Nearly all containers can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the container, particularly with weighty materials, like soil and rubble, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in big and bulky items, like household furniture.
How soon can you deliver a skip in Long Eaton?
When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. Sometimes, we can even give you a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed when going through the online order process.
What is the process of hiring a skip in Long Eaton?
This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip shall be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on council property (like the road). Next, select the date you would like your skip to get delivered. Check your order details and make payment with our secure online payment platform. That is it! We will deliver your skip to Long Eaton on the day you have selected.
Can I load the skip higher than the level load line?
You must not fill your skip past the level load line. If you fill it up above the tip of this mark, it means your skip will not be safe and secure to transport, and you can be asked to remove any extra waste before it can be collected.
How many different skip sizes are available?
Skips are offered in a wide range of different sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is perfect for small residential jobs.
The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yard is an excellent option for garden clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
If you have a more substantial waste disposal task to undertake, the builder’s skip may be the most suitable choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title suggests, these are the most popular sizes used by builders for construction waste, such as clay and hardcore. However they can just as well be used for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We can also provide 10-16 cubic yard skips and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further information about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the different waste streams, like wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?
You are allowed to throw a wide array of waste types in the skip. This includes timber, floor tiles, metal or rubble from a house clearance. Plant and bush clippings, top soil and stone from garden jobs are permitted as well. Dated units from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be thrown in the skip.
However, there are a few things that you can’t put in a skip because of the potential ecological or health risk they can trigger.
You are unable to throw in your freezer, printer or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these items consist of hazardous components in one type or another. They need to be discarded separately from normal waste.
If you want hazardous waste removal, we might be able to organise a separate service for this material. Please email for further information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
Am I able to throw electrical products in my skip?
Unfortunately it is not permitted, because electronic items such as old televisions, freezers, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly manner.
How much waste can a builders skip hold?
The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the largest containers that can be hired to get rid of weighty building waste such as stone, bricks, rubble or dirt.
The builder’s skip is perfect for a number of jobs. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or clearing out your loft, these big skips are usually the most affordable choice available.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container used to get rid of significant quantities of waste. Predominantly, these containers are hired for business uses. However, residential customers may also order them. It is very important take into account the area they will take up, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be hired for lightweight waste including plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of dirt and hardcore.
