March Skip Hire FAQs

Am I allowed to throw away electronic items in my skip?

Unfortunately not, as electrical products including old TVs, fridge freezers, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly manner.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container used to dispose of large quantities of waste materials. In most cases, these type of skips are used for industrial purposes. Having said that, residential clients may also use them. You have to look at the area they occupy, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be used for lightweight materials such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of garden soil and stone.

Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?

The vast majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.

A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the bin, especially with heavy materials, like soil and gravel, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load big and bulky items, like pieces of furniture.

What waste am I allowed to put in my skip?

Before hiring your skip, you must check that the kind of waste materials you wish to dispose of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials have to be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.

Examples of waste types it is possible to discard in your skip include household items like furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You can also use your skip to get rid of building and construction rubbish, such as old bricks, dirt, rubble, metals and gravel.

Examples of prohibited items include things like electronic goods, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently have to be discarded separately from any general waste.

Will you deliver skips across Cambridgeshire?

Certainly. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we can supply skips to both residential and commercial customers across Cambridgeshire and anywhere else within the UK.

How long can I keep a skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to 14 days. In most cases, that will provide you with sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Naturally, if you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just contact us when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These will be the biggest skips used to dispose of weighty building materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or clay.

The builder’s skip is great for a variety of jobs. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or cleaning the garage, these big containers are often the most cost-effective solution available.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We can typically supply skips to March the following working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking program will give you a range of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you would like your skip delivered ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.

Where does my rubbish go when the skip is collected?

The contents of the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling station. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machines and also by hand into different waste streams, such as metal, plastics, stone and timber. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are great for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furnishings and broken toys to paving slabs and bricks. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you having to make several visits to the local recycling centre.

Is it ok to load my skip higher than the top?

Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will probably have to empty any rubbish above the level load line. This means that you are not allowed to use sheets of timber, doors or another object, since this will increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty of care to make sure that bins aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure that you choose the appropriate sized skip to meet your needs and get in touch if you’re not sure which size you need. We will be glad to help.

Do I need to be in when the skip is going to be delivered?

No, you do not need to be at home when we are delivering your skip. So long as we can access the place you want it delivered, we can manage it all.

If you will not be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery instructions when you place your order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be located at a particular side of your property. Or you may need to be sure that the skip doesn’t hinder entry to your garage.

No matter what the situation may be, provide the information when ordering, and then we will ensure your directions are passed on to the lorry driver.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in March?

This will depend on the skip size you will need and if you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the cheapest option.
