Market Harborough Skip Hire FAQs

What sizes do skips come in?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Market Harborough, you have various options to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 cubic yard container, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is great for small domestic clearances and DIY jobs.

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

After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most common sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also makes them ideal for household clearances including large items like household furniture and beds.

We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even larger waste disposal needs. These containers are only suited to light waste, so they can’t be used to dispose of soil or rubble.

For additional information regarding the various capacities available, such as dimensions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

How long will it take to get a skip in Market Harborough?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We can normally give a next day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, because to go on public property (for example a road), you need to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of several factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it arriving in a morning or afternoon slot.

How much waste can a mini skip hold?

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

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and old baby toys to paving blocks and rubble. With a total capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you needing to make multiple trips to your local recycling centre.

Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?

I’m afraid this is not allowed, as electrical items like old televisions, refrigerators, pcs and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects need to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly fashion.

Can you deliver skips across Leicestershire?

Certainly. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we can deliver skips to both domestic and business customers throughout Leicestershire and anywhere else in the UK.

Do I have to be home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure that the skip lorry has total access and that the skip is situated exactly where you want it. The same applies for those who have a skip delivered to business property, particularly if gates limit access.

Having said that, when this isn’t feasible, you don’t need to worry. Just tell us when you are placing your order, and then we will take care of everything.

How big is a builders skip?

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

These substantial containers are suited to a multitude of domestic and business jobs. They are the largest sizes that you can use for hefty builders waste like soil, stone and gravel.

What skip sizes have a door?

For anybody who is hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is made for disposing of hefty building and construction waste, as it can be walked into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop door, however they are less common. The reason being these sizes are generally low enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to ensure a skip which has a drop door is supplied.

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

In most cases, it is possible to have the skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But in order to do this, you must get approval from your local authority in Market Harborough, which is called a skip permit. We will organise this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The council will impose a fee for this permit, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

Is it ok to pile up waste in my skip?

It is essential not to overload a skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is shown along the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it is very unsafe to move. Which means that if you overload your skip, you might be asked to take off the surplus waste. Regardless of how secure you believe the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be hazardous and is prohibited.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container that can be used to transport huge amounts of waste. In the majority of cases, these type of skips are used for commercial uses. Having said that, household customers may also hire them. You will need to look at the space they take up, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be utilised for light-weight materials including plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and stone.

Will a Market Harborough skip hire company deliver my skip?

We utilise a network of both local and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in Market Harborough and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner companies are approved and tested to ensure they satisfy our standards for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.

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

As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into different waste streams, including timber, metals, paper, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

You can typically hire your skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection is as convenient as possible, you will have the option of giving a preferred collection day when you make your order.

Alternatively, simply tell us when you have finished with the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the next working day.

It could take a little while longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, however we will always endeavour to come as quickly as possible.

Can I throw all kinds of rubbish in the skip?

You can load the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly generated from garage clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, dirt, concrete, garden trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you put in the skip depends on the size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, when you will be using your skip for heavy building wastes like rubble or soil, the largest size you would be able to use is the 8 cubic yard.

Some materials cannot be discarded in the skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.

Other areas covered include Melton Mowbray, Shepshed, Market Bosworth, Coalville, Loughborough, Hinckley, Ibstock and Ashby-de-la-Zouch.
