Do you use local skip hire companies in Malmesbury?
We utilise a large network of both regional and national skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our clients in Malmesbury and the rest of the country. Our partner skip hire companies are approved and evaluated to ensure they meet our expectations for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.
What will happen to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into various waste materials, including wood, metals, paper, etc. This ensures that as much of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Can you deliver to other areas in Wiltshire?
As well as delivering our range of skips to Malmesbury, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Wiltshire. By utilising a network of local and national skip companies, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to Malmesbury, Melksham or Swindon, we have got you covered.
How do I hire a skip in Malmesbury?
Ordering a skip in Malmesbury with us is incredibly simple. Pick the skip size you require and then input a couple of details about where and when you want the skip delivered. Then you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and arrange to have your skip delivered on the date selected.
Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric goods need to be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electric powered items like tumble dryers, TVs, kettles, laptops and even hair straighteners.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you need 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. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your booking prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we try to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery location, as failed deliveries will result in a charge for a wasted journey.
Do I need to be home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be at home when we deliver your skip. Provided that we are able to access the place you want it positioned, we will manage it all.
In the event you are not going to be in, just let us know any relevant delivery instructions when you book your order. For example, you may need the skip to be dropped on a particular side of your driveway. Alternatively, you might need to ensure that the skip doesn’t block entry to your garage.
No matter what the case may be, simply tell us when ordering, and we will make sure your instructions are passed to the delivery driver.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can in most cases keep the skip for up to 14 days from your date of delivery. You may provide a preferred collection day when you place your order. Otherwise, you can let us know when you have loaded the skip, and then we will plan your collection. Usually, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a little longer over busy periods.
What is the cost of skip hire in Malmesbury?
This will depend on the size you need and whether you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the lowest priced choice. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used primarily in commercial settings. To get an immediate price for skip hire in Malmesbury, simply enter your delivery postcode into the search box above.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Malmesbury?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only require a permit if it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit when your skip will be on your private property, like a driveway or on your company premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can place the skip on your own land, you will save some pounds.
Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?
It is very important not to overfill your skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take out excess waste before it can be collected. Irrespective of what size you hire, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, because moving an overloaded bin is hazardous, as waste could drop and result in personal injury or damage to other people.
To prevent this situation, please be sure you order a size appropriate for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full and you have additional rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.
How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to get rid of significant quantities of waste materials. Primarily, these type of skips are used for commercial uses. Having said that, household clients may also order them. You have to think about the area they occupy, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be used for light-weight waste like plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and concrete.
Which size skips have a drop down door?
Generally speaking, almost all skips can be provided with a hinged door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you want a drop down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Having a skip with a drop door is primarily beneficial when you are choosing a big builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, since they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What size is a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most commonly used for construction and demolition projects. There are generally two sizes that can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins which you can use to get rid of significant volumes of construction and demolition materials, such as earth, concrete and rock.
Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for multiple other household and commercial waste disposal tasks.
What waste materials can I put in my skip?
A skip can be used to dispose of lots of different types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and processing lots of items from construction jobs, garden landscaping and house clean-ups. Some examples of permitted waste materials include things like:
- Home furniture
- Garden trimmings
- Bathroom toilets and sinks
- Cabinets and units
Many different waste materials are generally accepted, therefore whether you would like to get rid of furniture, plastic materials, timber or old toys, we can usually take your waste away.
The quantity and things you throw into your skip may vary depending on the size skip you ordered. Skips have a weight limit for safety purposes. So if you want to discard soil and rubble, as an example, the largest size you would be permitted to hire will be the 8 yard skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?
There are some materials that you will not be allowed to throw out in your skip. The main reason for this is that these goods include hazardous elements which could be damaging to the environment. They can also be damaging to human health, and so they need to be discarded separately within UK regulations.
Examples of the products that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas canisters
- PC monitors
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
How large is the mini skip?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some household rubbish, the mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to handle numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be placed on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most commonly chosen by household customers, the mini skip can even tackle small commercial jobs.
