When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you complete your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we endeavour to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery site, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can lead to a charge for the wasted journey.

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are great for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and old toys to paving blocks and garden soil. With a capacity of approximately 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make several journeys to your local recycling centre.

Am I allowed to throw electrical items in the skip?

I’m afraid this is not allowed, because electrical items like old televisions, freezers, pcs and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items have to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly fashion.

How do I order a skip online?

We have developed our booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to enter your delivery address to check out all the different skip sizes we can supply in Market Bosworth. Pick the best size to meet your requirements and provide the details of where and when you want the skip delivered. You can then make payment with our secure payment system, and we’ll send you an email to verify the order as soon as your order is done!

Can you deliver skips across Leicestershire?

Absolutely. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we can deliver skips to household and commercial customers throughout Leicestershire and elsewhere in the UK.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Market Bosworth?

Generally, it is possible to get the skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to do this, you need to get permission from your local authority in Market Bosworth, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council do charge a fee for your license, and it can sometimes take 24-2 days for them to approve this.

What is a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builders skip is the size of skip most often used for building and construction jobs. There are usually two skip sizes which can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to get rid of substantial amounts of construction and demolition materials, such as soil, rubble and stone.

Even though they are branded a builders skip, these can be used for many other residential and business waste disposal tasks.

Can I fill my skip above the top?

You should not load your skip past the level load mark. If you fill it up above the tip of this mark, it means that your skip is not safe to move, and you might be asked to remove any extra rubbish before it can be collected.

What kinds of waste can I throw in a skip?

This is amongst the most common questions people have about skip hire. What is important to consider is that you may fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of rubbish that may come from garden projects, construction work and home clearances.

Some of the most common things which we collect in our skips include garden soil, timber, bush trimmings, kitchen units, baths, as well as other household items.

There are also some items that you are not allowed to put in your skip. For example, any electronic items (fridge freezers, monitors and printers for example), old car tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all considered hazardous waste, and therefore getting rid of them must follow a completely different procedure to make sure they don’t result in damage to the environment.

How many different skip sizes are available?

Skips are offered in a number of sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is good for small household projects.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a great option for attic clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant waste disposal task to handle, the builder’s skip might be the most suitable choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name implies, they are the most frequent sizes hired by builders for construction waste, including clay and rubble. However they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also provide 10-16 yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For additional information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What size skips will have a drop down door?

The majority of containers can be delivered with a drop door, making them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the container, particularly with heavy materials, such as soil and concrete, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, such as furniture.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container used to transport huge quantities of waste. In the majority of cases, these type of containers are hired for commercial applications. Having said that, residential customers may also order them. It is very important think about the area they will take up, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be hired for light-weight waste like plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of soil and stone.

Where does the rubbish be taken to once the skip is picked up?

The items in your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer centre. Here the contents will be separated by machines and by hand into numerous waste streams, like soil, paper, hardcore and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is always to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.

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

No, you do not need to be home when we deliver your skip. Providing we can gain access to where you want it delivered, we can manage everything.

In the event you are not likely to be in, just let us have any relevant delivery instructions when you place the order. For instance, you may prefer the skip to be positioned at a particular part of your drive. Or you may want to be sure that the skip does not block access to your garage.

Whatever the case may be, provide the information when you place your order, and then we will make sure the directions will be passed on to the lorry driver.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

Our normal hire term is a fortnight from the delivery date. Having said that, when you book the skip, you can tell us a pick up date that is ideal for you. Of course, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if the skip is fully loaded earlier than expected, let us know, and we will get it picked up as quickly as possible.

We can usually be out to get your skip within 48 hours. However, it is important to bear in mind this may not always be possible during busy times. Once collected, your skip will be transported to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed and sorted.

Other areas covered include Shepshed, Earl Shilton, Syston, Melton Mowbray, Broughton Astley, Market Harborough, Coalville and Lutterworth.
