Madeley Skip Hire FAQs

What size is the mini skip?

For those who have a small amount of waste to get rid of, the mini skip could be the best choice. What size is described as a mini skip varies from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they offer.

2 cubic yards is probably the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to have a 3 yard container as their smallest option. The price is based on the actual size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are ideal for household tasks like modest DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Madeley?

This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only need a skip permit if it is put on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or inside your company premises.

If you need to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on your own property, it will save you a few pounds.

Am I able to get rid of electrical items in my skip?

Unfortunately it is not permitted, since electronic items such as old TVs, fridge freezers, laptops and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly manner.

What will happen to my rubbish once the skip is collected?

The contents of the skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling facility. Here the waste will be sorted by machines and by hand into numerous waste streams, like soil, plastics, hardcore and wood. Processing the waste in this way helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste ending up in landfill.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips come in a selection of sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small household projects.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yard is an excellent option for attic clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more significant waste disposal task to handle, a builder’s skip might be the smartest choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name indicates, these are the most typical sizes hired by builders for construction waste, like clay and hardcore. But they can just as well be used for domestic waste such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also offer 10-16 yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Is it okay to load my skip above the level load mark?

It is important to not overload a skip. You can not pass the level load line shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it becomes very dangerous to move. This means that if you overfill your skip, you could be required to take off the excess waste. No matter how secure you believe the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This is dangerous and is not allowed.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is the most frequent skip that is used across the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builders skip is great for most building jobs, which is where the name originates from.

The 8 yd builders skip will be the biggest option that you can use for hefty waste including dirt, concrete, bricks and rubble.

Is it possible to get a skip which has a drop door?

Typically, almost all skips can be provided with a drop-down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and location. If you require a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip with a drop door is mainly useful if choosing a big builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow waste materials directly into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, because they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

We will immediately display which sizes we offer in your location and how much each size will cost to order.

What kinds of waste am I allowed to get rid of in a skip?

Your skip can be hired to dispose of lots of different types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and handling a wide variety of materials from construction work, garden projects and property tidy-ups. Some examples of permitted waste materials include things like:

  • Pieces of furniture
  • Garden trimmings
  • Top soil
  • Stone and concrete
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Cabinets and units

Most materials are generally allowed, and therefore whether you would like to dispose of metals, plastics, wood or unwanted toys, we can usually take your waste away.

The quantity and items you put in the skip can vary according to which size skip you chosen. All skips do have a weight limit for safety purposes. So if you would like discard garden soil and concrete, as an example, the largest size you would be allowed to hire will be the 8 yard skip.

Are there any items that I can’t put in the skip?

There are some waste items which you will not be allowed to put in the skip. The reason behind this is that these items include hazardous elements which may cause damage to the environment. They may also be hazardous to human health, and so they must be discarded separately under UK laws.

A few examples of the items that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Battery packs
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you operate a business in Madeley and want to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips available.

As the name indicates, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, in contrast to standard skips, which are lifted by using chains.

How quick can you deliver a skip to Madeley?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We will typically offer a next day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, because to go on public property (like a street), you will have to get a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to many factors that may impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it turning up in a AM or PM slot.

Will a skip hire company from Madeley deliver my skip?

To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work in partnership with a number of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be there when the skip is delivered. You can then make sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip is positioned exactly where you need it. This also is true when you have a skip delivered to business property, especially if gates restrict access.

On the other hand, if that is not possible, you do not have to worry. Just tell us when you are placing your order, and then we will take care of the rest.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

You can usually hire a skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, there is the choice of giving a preferred collection day when making your order.

It might take a little while longer to collect your skip over busy periods, but we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.
