Lutterworth Skip Hire FAQs
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available from skip firms and is designed for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms offer a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are large industrial size skips used mainly within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for organisations that generate significant volumes of waste materials.
What size skips do you supply?
We are able to supply a full-range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip suitable for modest DIY tasks and household clearances. A common choice for more substantial projects, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Lutterworth businesses which produce a big quantity of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Is it okay to load the skip above level load mark?
It is very important to not overload a skip, as you risk being told to take out excess waste prior to it being collected. Irrespective of what size you order, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, as moving an overloaded skip can be hazardous, as waste could drop and cause personal injury or damage to others.
To prevent this situation, please ensure that you order a skip size appropriate for your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full and you have more rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?
You don’t really need to be home when the skip is delivered, but it will help. Being there whenever the skip arrives means you can make sure the driver is given full access and that your skip will be dropped precisely where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to company premises, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, in the event you can’t be available during delivery, don’t worry. We just ask you to tell us when you place your order, and we will arrange everything from there.
What is the cost of skip hire in Lutterworth?
Our goal is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Lutterworth. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip that you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have your skip placed on the road or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the added expense of a skip permit.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Lutterworth?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you want your skip to be situated on land outside of your company or home, you must obtain permission from your local council in Lutterworth, which is called a permit. If required, we will be happy to arrange this for you, and so it’s one less point to worry about. The council does charge a fee for the permit, plus you should be aware before ordering that getting the licence can often take up to two working days.
Will you deliver skips across Leicestershire?
Yes, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver skips to locations across Leicestershire, such as Lutterworth, Market Harborough, Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Melton Mowbray. So wherever you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Lutterworth?
To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work in partnership with a variety of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we can offer customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.
Is it possible to have a skip that has a drop down door?
If you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is ideal for disposing of hefty building and demolition materials, as it can be pushed into the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop door, although these are typically more uncommon. This is because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip that has a drop door is delivered.
Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items have to be kept separate from general rubbish to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electrical goods such as tumble dryers, TVs, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.
What happens to my waste when the skip is collected?
The contents of your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling station. Here the contents will be separated by machines and also by hand into different waste materials, such as metal, paper, concrete and timber. Processing the waste in this manner helps to maximise the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste ending up in landfill.
What is classed as being a builders skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yd skip. The label comes from the fact that they are the most popular sizes hired by builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are suitable for a wide variety of domestic and business tasks. These are the largest skip sizes which you can use for heavy builders waste such as garden soil, stone and bricks.
How quickly can you deliver a skip in Lutterworth?
If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the next day. In some cases, we can even offer a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed as part of the order process.
How can I hire a skip in Lutterworth?
Hiring a skip in Lutterworth with us is very simple. Pick the skip size you will need and input a couple of details about when and where you want the skip delivered. You then pay for your skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then schedule to get your skip delivered on the date selected.
What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?
Your skip can be hired to discard many different types of waste materials. We are used to collecting and processing a multitude of materials generated from building jobs, garden projects and household clean-ups. Some examples of permitted waste materials can include:
- Hedge trimmings
- Garden soil
- Concrete and bricks
- Bathroom sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
The majority of waste materials will be accepted, and so whether you would like to dispose of metals, plastic materials, timber or unwanted toys, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The volume and waste types you throw into your skip will vary according to the size skip you ordered. All skips do have a weight limit for safety purposes. So if you want to get rid of garden soil and rubble, for example, the largest size container you will be allowed to use is the 8 yard skip.
Are there any items that I can’t put in the skip?
There are a few materials that you will not be allowed to dump in your skip. The reason for this is that these products incorporate hazardous elements which could damage the environment. They can also be dangerous to human health, so they must be discarded separately within UK law.
Some of the items which are restricted include:
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas canisters
- Computer monitors
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
Normally, you can have the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.
