Manningtree Skip Hire FAQs

Do I need to be home when the skip will be delivered?

It is always best if you can be in when anybody delivers something to your property. That allows you to make sure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed exactly where you want it.

The same applies if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Manningtree?

This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is placed on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if the skip is on private property, such as a driveway or inside your company premises.

Should you have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place your skip on private property, it will save you a few pounds.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?

When you have finished filling up your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Manningtree where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

Who will deliver my skip?

We utilise a network of both local and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in Manningtree and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner firms are approved and tested to make sure they meet our expectations for price, customer service, recycling and reliability.

Do all skips have a drop door?

When you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is designed for disposing of heavy building and demolition rubbish, as it can be pushed in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop-down door, though they are more uncommon. This is because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, please let us know when placing your order. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip which has a drop door is provided.

Can I load up my skip above level load line?

It is vital to never overfill a skip. You can not pass the level load line that is indicated along the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it can be very dangerous to move. Which means that when you overload the skip, you may be asked to remove the excess waste. Regardless of how safe you think the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. That is dangerous and is therefore prohibited.

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?

A roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a substantial container that is used to get rid of large amounts of rubbish. These skips are mainly for business use but can be used by household clients too. Having said that, you should have a good amount of space since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger when compared to the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.

As a result of the size, RORO skips should only be provided for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suitable for disposing of concrete and rubble.

What size skips can you deliver?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Manningtree, you will have numerous sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for modest household clearances and DIY jobs.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also means they are well suited for house clearances including large items such as household furniture and beds.

We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people with even larger waste disposal requirements. These sizes are only appropriate for light materials, so they cannot be used to dispose of garden soil or rubble.

To get more information about the various sizes available, such as dimensions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

What waste materials can I put in a skip?

It is possible to put a wide array of waste into the skip. This can include timber, bathroom tiles, plastics or bricks from a household clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, soil and rock from garden jobs are allowed as well. Cupboards from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be discarded in a skip.

However, there are some materials that you are not allowed to put in a skip because of the possible ecological or health risk they can trigger.

You are unable to get rid of your refrigerator, computer monitor or old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things include hazardous components in one form or another. They should be discarded separately from your normal waste.

Should you require hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to schedule a separate collection for this material. Please email for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling centre.

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

When you have a small amount of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip might be the best solution. What size is described as a mini skip varies from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they provide.

2 cubic yards is probably the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to have a 3 yard container for their smallest option. Cost depends on the particular size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are fantastic for domestic jobs like modest DIY projects and garden clean 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.

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

The builders skip is probably the most frequent skip which is ordered in the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is perfect for most building work, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip will be the biggest size that can be used for heavy materials including soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.

How long can I hire a skip for?

Typically, you can have the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t need to hurry through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.

What is the cost of skip hire in Manningtree?

If you require a bigger skip, like an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also increase if you need to have a skip positioned on the highway, since you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Can I throw away electrical products in the skip?

Electric powered products such as television sets, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous type of waste and so should not be placed in your skip with other waste.
