Mansfield Skip Hire FAQs
How long does it take to get a skip in Mansfield?
We will make sure your skip is provided when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our very best to reach you within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You have to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted journey.
How do you hire a skip in Mansfield?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip will be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on council property (like the street). Next, choose the day you want the skip to be delivered. Check your order and make payment using our secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Mansfield on the day you have chosen.
If I would like a skip on the road in Mansfield, will I need a permit?
Preferably, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface area. If you are doing a domestic project, then a driveway will be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public land, you must obtain a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be positioned on a road, grass verge as well as other public property in Mansfield. If this is required, we will request the license to be granted for you. An extra charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your skip.
What skip sizes will have a door?
When you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is made for disposing of heavy building and construction waste materials, as it can be pushed in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop down door, however these are typically more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to ensure a container that has a drop door is delivered.
What types of rubbish can you get rid of in a skip?
Before getting your skip, it is important to check that the type of waste materials you wish to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials must be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types you can throw in a skip include household items like furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use a skip to discard building and demolition waste, like wood, dirt, rubble, metals and gravel.
Examples of restricted items include electrical goods, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.

Is it ok to fill my skip higher than level load line?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it hazardous to transport, and you will probably have to remove any materials over the level load line. This means you are not allowed to use sheets of wood, doors or another object, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal responsibility to ensure that skips are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure that you hire the appropriate sized skip to meet your requirements and get in touch if you are uncertain which size you need. We would be glad to help.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
Skips are offered in a selection of sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is great for small household projects.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is an excellent choice for garage clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
If you have a more significant waste disposal task to handle, the builder’s skip might be the most suitable choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label indicates, they are the most typical sizes hired by builders for building waste, including soil and rubble. But they can just as well be used for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.
We can also supply 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For further details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
Can I put electronic items in the skip?
No, you can not throw old or broken electronic waste items in a skip. This can include items like computers, hobs, washing machines, freezers and tv sets. Electronic products can’t be disposed of in a skip because they can include hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
The materials in the skip will be taken to the local waste recycling station. Here the contents will be separated by machines and by hand into different waste streams, such as soil, paper, hardcore and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.
Do I have to be there when the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we deliver your skip. As long as we are able to access the place you need it positioned, we can take care of it all.
If you will not be in, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when booking the order. For instance, you might want the skip to be located at a particular area of your driveway. Alternatively, you might want to make sure the skip does not block entry to your garage.
No matter what the case might be, tell us when ordering, and then we will make sure your instructions will be passed to the delivery driver.
