Lynton Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
The term builder’s skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The term comes from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are perfect for a wide variety of residential and industrial tasks. They are the largest size skips which you can use for heavy builders waste including top soil, stone and bricks.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
If you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is made for getting rid of heavy building and construction rubbish, as it can be walked in the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop door, however they are less common. Simply because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our best to make sure a skip that has a drop door is supplied.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can usually deliver skips to Lynton the next working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

What kinds of rubbish am I able to throw in a skip?
You can put a wide array of waste into the skip. This includes wood, floor tiles, metal or bricks from a household clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, soil and rock from garden jobs are permitted too. Dated cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be thrown in the skip.
There are, however, things that you can’t put in a skip a result of the possible environment or health risks they may cause.
You can’t get rid of your freezer, printer or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items contain hazardous components in one type or another. They must be discarded separately from normal waste.
Should you require hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to arrange a separate service for this waste. Please email us for further information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
What are the different skip sizes available?
We are able to supply a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip great for small DIY projects and house clearances. A common option for larger jobs, renovations and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Lynton companies which generate a large volume of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do I need to be home when the skip is going to be delivered?
It usually is a good idea to be there when anyone delivers something to your property. That allows you to ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be located just where you need it.
The same thing goes for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.
However, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?
The materials in the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling station. Here the rubbish will be sorted by machines and by hand into numerous waste streams, like metal, paper, rubble and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container used to transport significant quantities of waste materials. In most cases, these type of containers are used for commercial uses. Having said that, domestic clients can also use them. You will need to consider the area they take up, as they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be utilised for lightweight waste such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of soil and stone.
How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
If you are looking for a cheap skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to deal with numerous jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be positioned on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most often hired by household customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.
What is the cost of skip hire in Lynton?
The cost of hiring a skip in Lynton will depend on the size of skip you need. The cheapest option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also be more if you want to have the skip on the road, since you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Am I able to get rid of electrical items in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old or unwanted electrical waste products in a skip. This can include things such as computers, hobs, tumble dryers, refrigerators and television sets. Electrical items can’t be discarded in a skip as they can have hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.

Ordering a skip should not be hard. This is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, enter in your delivery postcode to look at the range of skip sizes we can deliver to Lynton.

Is it ok to load my skip above the level load mark?
It is important to not overfill a skip, as you risk being told to take out surplus waste prior to it being picked up. No matter what size you order, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, since moving an overloaded container will be dangerous, as materials could fall and lead to injuries or damage to other people.
To avoid this issue, please be sure to hire a skip size suited to your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full and you have additional rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
Our normal hire term is 14 days from your delivery date. Having said that, at the time you order your skip, you can select a collection date that is perfect for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is fully loaded sooner than expected, contact us, and we will get it picked up at the earliest opportunity.
We will usually make collections within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to understand that this is not always the case during busier times. Once collected, the skip will be taken to your local waste transfer station, where it will be processed and sorted.
If I want a skip on the road in Lynton, will I need a permit?
In the vast majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the road, pathway 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 residence, you have got to obtain authorisation from the local council in Lynton, which is known as a skip permit. If necessary, we would gladly arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for the permit, and you should know before booking that securing the permit can often take up to 2 working days.
