Louth Skip Hire FAQs
What is the cost of skip hire in Louth?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Louth, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you which skip sizes we offer in your town and how much each option will cost you to hire. If the skip will be on the highway or other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also have to be factored in.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, as electronic products including old televisions, fridge freezers, pcs and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items need to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.
How do you hire a skip in Louth?
Ordering a skip in Louth through us is very straightforward. Pick the skip size you want and enter a couple of details about when and where you want the skip delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and then prepare to get your skip delivered to you.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Louth?
If at all possible, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. For anybody who is doing a residential project, then your driveway is going to be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. On the other hand, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public property, you must get a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be positioned on the road, grass verge or any other public property in Louth. If this is required, we will request the permit to be granted on your behalf. An additional charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. You can then ensure the lorry has total access and that the skip will be located precisely where you want it. The same is true if you have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly if gates limit access.
On the other hand, if this is not achievable, you do not need to worry. Simply let us know when placing your booking, and then we will take care of the rest.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver, we try to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery site, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can lead to a charge for a wasted journey.
What sizes do skips come in?
We provide a full range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip best for modest DIY tasks and household clearances. A popular option for bigger tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Louth companies which generate a significant volume of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do you deliver to other areas in Lincolnshire?
Of course, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skips to areas across Lincolnshire, such as Louth, Lincoln, Brigg and Spilsby. So wherever you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Can I get a skip with a drop door?
Getting a skip which has a drop door makes filling rubbish into it so much easier. This is especially true with heavy waste materials like soil and hardcore, which can then be loaded directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading big bulky objects such as household furniture much easier as well.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, however it will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when making your booking if a drop door is required, and we will do our best to provide this.
Will a Louth skip hire company deliver my skip?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a variety of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we can supply customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.
Is it okay to pile up the waste in my skip?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it unsafe to transport, and you will be asked to remove any materials above the level load mark. This also means that you cannot make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other object, since this will increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty of care to make sure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure to select the correct size of skip for your requirements and get in contact if you’re not sure which size you require. We would be happy to help.
Am I allowed to put all kinds of rubbish in my skip?
You are able to throw a variety of waste into the skip. This includes wood, floor tiles, metal or concrete from a property clearance. Tree and bush clippings, soil and stone from garden work is allowed as well. Cupboards and worktops from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be thrown in the skip.
There are, however, some things that you can’t put in a skip a result of the potential environmental or health risks they may trigger.
You can’t get rid of your refrigerator, printer or old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things consist of hazardous materials in one form or another. They should be disposed of separately from your normal waste.
If you want hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to schedule a separate collection for this waste. Please email us for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
You can normally keep the skip for up to two weeks from your date of delivery. You are able to provide a chosen pick up date when you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know once you have loaded the skip, and we will plan the collection. In most cases, this will be the following working day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer during busy times.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
The roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a substantial container that is used to dispose of large quantities of rubbish. These containers are mainly for industrial use but can be hired by household clients too. Having said that, you need lots of room since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger than the typical skip you will see on the side of the road.
Due to the size, roro skips should only be provided for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and bricks.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are fantastic for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furnishings and broken baby toys to paving slabs and garden soil. Having a volume of around 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make multiple trips to the local recycling centre.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is the most frequent skip hired throughout the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is ideal for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip will be the largest size that you can use for hefty waste materials like garden soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into a number of waste types, such as wood, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!
