Market Drayton Skip Hire FAQs

What happens to the rubbish in the skip?

The contents of your skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer facility. Here the contents will be segregated by machinery and also by hand into numerous waste materials, such as soil, cardboard, hardcore and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.

Who will deliver my skip?

To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work in partnership with a wide range of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.

How quickly can you deliver a skip in Market Drayton?

Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We will normally provide a next day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, because to be on public property (for example a road), you need to obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.

As a result of many factors that may impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it arriving in a morning or afternoon slot.

What size skips can you offer?

We are able to supply a full range of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip perfect for modest DIY jobs and house clearances. A common option for larger jobs, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.

For Market Drayton firms with a significant amount of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Can I put all kinds of rubbish in a skip?

Your skip can be hired to dispose of lots of different types of waste. We are used to collecting and processing lots of items generated from construction work, garden projects and household clean-ups. Examples of permitted waste products can include:

  • Furniture
  • Tree trimmings
  • Garden soil
  • Stone and concrete
  • Bathroom suites
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many different materials will be accepted, so whether you would like to throw out furniture, plastics, timber or old toys, we can normally take your waste away.

The quantity and materials you put into the skip can vary depending on the size skip you chosen. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So to be able to dispose of top soil and rubble, as an example, the biggest size container you would be allowed to use is the 8 cubic yard skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?

There are some waste materials you are not permitted to throw out in the skip. The main reason for this is that some items incorporate hazardous elements which can be damaging to the environment. They can also be damaging to human health, so they have to be discarded separately within UK laws.

Examples of the products that are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The term builder’s skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The term stems from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes used by builders and tradespeople.

These substantial skips are fantastic for a multitude of residential and industrial projects. These are the biggest size skips which can be used for hefty builders waste like top soil, rubble and gravel.

Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?

No, you cannot put old electrical waste items in your skip. This can include items like computers, cookers, washing machines, fridges and television sets. Electric products can’t be disposed of in a skip as they can have hazardous materials and components.

As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?

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

Having a skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the bin, especially with heavy materials, such as dirt and gravel, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, like furniture.

How big is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are great for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and old baby toys to paving slabs and rubble. With a total capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you having to make several journeys to your local recycling centre.

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are big commercial scale skips used primarily in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for organisations that generate significant volumes of waste.

If I would like a skip on a road in Market Drayton, will I need to have a permit?

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

If you need to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on private land, it will save you a few pounds.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?

You don’t need to be home when the skip is delivered, but it does help. Being home when your skip arrives means you can make sure the driver can be given full access and that your skip is placed precisely where you need it. Likewise, if your skip is hired to business premises, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.

However, if you can’t be around at the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you place the order, and then we will organise things from there.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Market Drayton?

The price of hiring a skip in Market Drayton is determined by the size of skip you require. The least expensive skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and clearances. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also increase if you want to have your skip positioned on the road, as you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

You can normally have your skip for as many as 14 days from your delivery date. You can give a preferred pick up date when you place your order. Alternatively, you can let us know after you have finished, and we will arrange the collection. Generally, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer during busy times.

Can I load my skip above the level load mark?

You must not load your skip past the level load line. When you load it above the tip of this mark, it means that the skip is not secure to transport, and you could be asked to remove the excess rubbish before it can be picked up.

Other areas covered include Cleobury Mortimer, Broseley, Newport, Bishop’s Castle, Shrewsbury, Ellesmere, Wem and Church Stretton.
