Long Sutton Skip Hire FAQs
Can I pile up waste in my skip?
It is very important never to overfill a skip, as you risk being told to take out excessive waste before it can be picked up. Regardless of what size you hire, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, as moving an overloaded bin will be dangerous, as objects could fall and result in injuries or damage to others.
To prevent this problem, please make sure you hire a skip size appropriate for your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full and you have further waste to dispose of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
You can in most cases have your skip for as long as 2 weeks from the date of delivery. You are able to give a chosen collection day at the time you place your order. Alternatively, you can tell us after you have finished with the skip, and we will organise your collection. In most cases, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer over hectic times.
Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Long Sutton?
This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a permit when it is put on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit if your skip will be on private property, like a driveway or inside your business premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on your own property, you will save a few pounds.

What is a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The label comes from the fact that these are the most typical sizes ordered by builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are great for numerous types of domestic and commercial jobs. They are the biggest sizes which can be used for weighty builders waste including dirt, stone and bricks.
Am I able to throw away electrical items in my skip?
Unfortunately not, because electrical products like old televisions, refrigerators, pcs and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly manner.
What things can I put in my skip?
You are able to load your skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly generated from home clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include wood, garden soil, concrete, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you put in your skip depends on the size you have ordered, because there is a weight limit. For instance, when you will be using the skip for heavy construction waste such as bricks or soil, the maximum size you can hire is the 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in your skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.
What size skips have got a door?
Using a skip with a drop door makes filling waste into it much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste materials such as garden soil or hardcore, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up large bulky items like furniture much easier also.
The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, but it will sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when you place your booking if a door is required, and we will do our very best to deliver this.
Do you deliver skips across Lincolnshire?
Certainly. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to deliver skips to both residential and commercial customers throughout Lincolnshire and anywhere else in the UK.
Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?
It is usually best if you can be available when anyone delivers anything to your home. That allows you to ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it.
The same thing applies for those who have a business. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.
However, should it be unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available from skip firms and is good for small DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some firms will provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We can usually deliver skips to Long Sutton the following working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking platform provides you with various delivery dates to choose from. So whether you would like the skip delivered ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
What size roll-on roll-off skips do you offer?
A roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of large volumes of waste. These bins are predominantly for business use but can be hired by domestic customers also. Having said that, you will need a good amount of room as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger compared to the average skip you will see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, RORO skips can only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not suitable for disposing of concrete and bricks.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Long Sutton?
The price of hiring a skip in Long Sutton depends on the size of skip you require. The cheapest option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and clearances. If you need a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you need to have the skip positioned on the road, as you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip?
When you have finished with your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility in or local to Long Sutton where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
