Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Lyme Regis?
Ideally, you should have the skip left on to a hard surface area. If you are carrying out a household task, then a driveway is going to be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public property, you will need to obtain a permit from the local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be positioned on the road, grass verge or any other public property in Lyme Regis. If this is required, we will request the license to be issued for you. An additional cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you have a company in Lyme Regis and wish to dispose of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a perfect option. Offered in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the label implies, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to normal skips, which are lifted by using chains.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
The waste in your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer station. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machinery and by hand into various waste streams, including soil, plastics, rubble and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.
Can I have a skip that has a drop door?
Typically, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, since it allows you to wheelbarrow your waste directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, as they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t need to be at your property when your skip will be delivered, but it will help. Being home when your skip arrives means that you can ensure the lorry can be given complete access and that your skip is located exactly where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is being delivered to a company premises, we will appreciate your support during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, when you can’t be available for delivery, don’t worry. We just ask you to let us know when you book your order, and then we will organise things from there.
How much does skip hire in Lyme Regis cost?
The price of hiring a skip in Lyme Regis is determined by the size of skip you require. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and clearances. If you need a larger skip, like an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also be more if you need to have the skip on the highway, as you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
A builders skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These are the biggest containers that can be hired to get rid of heavy building and construction waste materials such as rock, bricks, rubble or soil.
A builder’s skip is great for a number of jobs. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or cleaning out the attic, these big skips tend to be the most affordable choice available.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the following day. In some instances, we can even give you a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed as part of the order process.
Can you deliver skips across Dorset?
In addition to delivering skips to Lyme Regis, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Dorset. Through a network of regional and national waste management and recycling companies, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Lyme Regis, Wareham or Weymouth, we have got it covered.
How many different skip sizes are there?
Skips are available in a number of different sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small domestic projects.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a fantastic option for attic clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more significant waste disposal job to sort out, the builder’s skip might be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label suggests, these represent the most common sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, like clay and rubble. But they can equally well be used for household waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We also supply 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional info on all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
Am I allowed to load up my skip higher than level load line?
It is important never to overload a skip, as you risk being required to take out surplus waste before it can be collected. No matter what size you hire, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, since transporting an overloaded container is dangerous, as materials could fall and lead to injury or damage to others.
To prevent this situation, please be sure you order a size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full but you have extra waste to get rid of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
Am I allowed to put electrical products in the skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products need to be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered goods like washing machines, televisions, toasters, laptops and even hairdryers.
How long can I hire a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, this gives you plenty of time to load your skip. However, if you do need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, if you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know once you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.
Will a Lyme Regis skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Lyme Regis. We make use of a network of both regional and nationwide businesses to enable us to offer our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are comprehensively assessed to make sure they satisfy the high expectations we demand when it comes to customer service, price and environmental performance.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
For those who have a small quantity of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip could be the ideal solution. What size is described as a mini skip varies from company to company, according to what sizes they supply.
2 cubic yards is probably the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 yard container as their smallest option. The price is based on the actual size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are best for household jobs including modest DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
What kinds of waste can I get rid of in a skip?
You are allowed to throw a variety of rubbish into your skip. This can include wood, tile, plastics or bricks from a house clearance. Plant and bush clippings, dirt and stone from garden jobs are allowed also. Dated cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also go in the skip.
There are, however, some things that you cannot put in a skip because of the possible environment or health risk they can cause.
You can’t throw in your fridge freezer, printer or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things incorporate hazardous materials in one form or another. They should be discarded separately from general waste.
Should you need hazardous waste removal, we might be able to organise a separate collection for this waste. Please email for further information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
