Marlborough Skip Hire FAQs

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is the most common skip that is used across the country. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builders skip is great for most building and demolition projects, which is where the name originates from.

The 8 yd builder’s skip is the largest size that you can use for heavy materials including dirt, concrete, bricks and rubble.

What sort of rubbish can I dispose of in a skip?

It is possible to load the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from home clearances, building work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include wood, garden soil, bricks, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you put in your skip would depend on the skip size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight limit. For example, if you are using a skip for heavy construction wastes including rubble or soil, the maximum size you can get is an 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials should not be disposed of in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.

Where does my waste be taken to when the skip is picked up?

When you have finished filling your skip, we will come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre in or local to Marlborough where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.

How large is a roll-on roll-off container?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to transport huge volumes of waste materials. In most cases, these containers are hired for industrial uses. Having said that, household customers may also order them. It is essential to consider the space they will take up, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be utilised for light waste including plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and stone.

Do you deliver skips across Wiltshire?

Along with delivering our range of skips to Marlborough, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Wiltshire. With the help of a network of local and national skip businesses, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to Marlborough, Warminster or Corsham, we have got it covered.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Marlborough?

A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in Marlborough. We make use of a network of both regional and national businesses to allow us to offer our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully vetted to make certain they match the high principles we require in terms of service, cost and environmental performance.

How much will skip hire in Marlborough cost?

Our aim is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Marlborough. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip that you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have the skip situated on the street or other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the extra expense of a skip permit.

If I want a skip on a road in Marlborough, will I need to get a permit?

If at all possible, you should have the skip left on a hard surface area. For anybody who is carrying out a domestic project, then the driveway will be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public property, you must obtain a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be located on a road, grass verge as well as other public property in Marlborough. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be granted for you. An extra cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

Generally, you can have your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t have to hurry through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is full ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

Do I have to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?

No, you don’t have to be home when we are delivering your skip. So long as we can access where you want it positioned, we are able to manage everything.

If you will not be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when placing the order. For instance, you might need the skip to be located at a particular part of your property. Or you may need to be sure that the skip does not obstruct access to your garage.

Whatever the situation might be, provide the details when ordering, and we will make sure your instructions are passed to the delivery driver.

Next, choose the day you would like the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Marlborough on the day you have chosen.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips come in a selection of different sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is good for small household projects.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 black 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 good option for shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to deal with, a builder’s skip might be the most suitable option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title suggests, they are the most typical sizes hired by builders for building waste, including soil and stone. However they can equally well be used for domestic rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.

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

Guide to skip sizes

When will the skip be delivered to me?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We can normally provide a following day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip on private property, since to be on public property (for example a road), you must obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.

As a result of numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it to be delivered in a AM or PM slot.

Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?

You should not fill the skip beyond the level load mark. When you load it over the tip of this mark, it means your skip will not be safe to move, and you can be asked to take off any excess rubbish before it can be collected.

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

Electronic items like TVs, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore can not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered goods need to be separated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly way.

How big is a mini skip?

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

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and old baby toys to paving blocks and soil. Having a capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you having to make numerous visits to your local recycling centre.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

Typically, most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, depending on skip size, availability and location. If you need a drop door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip with a drop door is primarily beneficial if hiring a big builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow waste materials directly into the skip. This isn’t so important for midi and mini skips, as they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Other areas covered include Warminster, Corsham, Swindon, Wilton, Malmesbury, Ludgershall, Bradford-on-Avon and Mere.
