Hiring a skip should not be hard. This is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible.

As soon as your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with all your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
What types of waste can I put in my skip?
Before ordering your skip, it is important to make sure that the type of rubbish you intend to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials must be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you are able to discard in your skip include home items like furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use your skip to discard building and construction rubbish, such as bricks, soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Examples of restricted items include things like electronic products, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently must be disposed of separately from any general rubbish.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge commercial size skips used predominantly within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for companies that generate large quantities of waste materials.
What is the size of a builders skip?
The builders skip is probably the most frequent skip used throughout the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builder’s skip is great for most building projects, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip will be the largest option that you can use for hefty waste materials including garden soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Ludlow?
As we provide a nationwide skip service, we utilise a comprehensive network of verified and approved businesses. These include small family-run skip hire firms to national waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental standards.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
You can normally keep your skip for up to 2 weeks from the date of delivery. You may give a chosen collection day when you place your order. Alternatively, you can tell us after you have loaded the skip, and we will arrange the collection. Normally, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take a little longer over hectic times.
Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?
You should not fill the skip past the level load line. When you fill it up over the tip of this mark, it means that the skip is not secure to move, and you could be asked to remove any excess rubbish before it can be picked up.
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
For those who have a small quantity of waste to throw out, the mini skip could be the ideal option. What size is identified as a mini skip varies from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they offer.
The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to have a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The cost is based on the actual size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for household work such as modest DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
The waste in your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer facility. Here the waste will be separated by machines and also by hand into numerous waste streams, including soil, plastics, hardcore and timber. Processing the waste in this way helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.
Will my skip come with a drop down door?
Typically, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful if choosing a big builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini and midi skips, because they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Ludlow?
Our goal is to offer the cheapest skip hire service in Ludlow. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have a skip located on the street or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the extra price of a skip permit.
Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Ludlow?
Ideally, you should have the skip left on to a hard surface. When you are carrying out a household job, then the drive is going to be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. On the other hand, when neither is available, the street or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public property, you need to have a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on the street, grass verge as well as other public property in Ludlow. If this is required, we will request the license 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.
How many different skip sizes are there?
We can provide a wide range of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip great for modest DIY projects and house clearances. A popular choice for larger projects, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard skip.
For Ludlow companies which generate a big volume of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do I have to be there when the skip is delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we are delivering the skip. As long as we can access where you want it positioned, we are able to take care of it all.
In case you will not be in, just let us have any relevant delivery instructions when booking your order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be located at a particular side of your drive. Alternatively, you might need to ensure the skip does not prevent entry to your garage.
Whatever the case might be, provide the information when ordering, and we will make sure the directions will be passed to the lorry driver.
How soon can you deliver a skip in Ludlow?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your booking prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver, we strive to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery spot, as failed deliveries will lead to a fee for a wasted trip.
Can you deliver skips across Shropshire?
Yes. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we are able to deliver skips to both household and commercial customers throughout Shropshire and elsewhere within the UK.
Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items need to be kept separate from general waste materials to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric products like tumble dryers, televisions, toasters, laptops and even hairdryers.
Other areas covered include Much Wenlock, Bridgnorth, Wem, Newport, Shrewsbury, Bishop’s Castle, Broseley and Ellesmere.
