Below are some of the typical questions we get with regards to our skip hire and recycling service.
Matlock Skip Hire FAQs
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you operate a company in Matlock and wish to get rid of large volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a perfect option. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that are available.
As the name implies, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, as opposed to regular skips, which are picked up using chains.
When will my skip be delivered?
When your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We will usually offer you a following day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, because to go on public property (like a street), you will need to obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.
Due to numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it to be delivered within a morning or afternoon slot.
How long can I hire a skip for?
You can typically keep your skip for as many as 2 weeks from your date of delivery. It is possible to provide a chosen pick up day when you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us when you have loaded the skip, and then we will organise the collection. In most cases, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer during hectic times.
What size is the mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household waste, the mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to tackle many tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be placed on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.
Although most commonly chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We offer a complete variety of skip capacities to domestic and industrial customers all over the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the different skip sizes on offer, with a rough guide to the amount of rubbish each size can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
- 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

Will the skip come with a drop door?
When you are selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is perfect for disposing of hefty building and construction waste materials, as it can be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop-down door, although these are typically less common. This is because these sizes are generally small enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to make sure a container with a drop door is provided.
What will happen to the waste once the skip is collected?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the various waste materials, like timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Matlock?
This will depend on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if the skip is on your private property, like a driveway or within your business premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position the skip on your own property, it will save you a few pounds.
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot put old or broken electrical waste items in a skip. This includes items like laptops or computers, microwaves, tumble dryers, fridges and tv sets. Electric objects can’t be discarded in the skip because they can include dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.
What is classed as a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most often supplied for building jobs. There are usually two different skip sizes that may be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to get rid of significant volumes of building and demolition waste materials, including dirt, rubble and bricks.
Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for many other domestic and business waste disposal tasks.
Will a Matlock skip hire company deliver my skip?
Since we provide a nationwide skip service, we use an extensive network of verified companies. These include small local skip hire firms to nationwide waste management service providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental requirements.
How do you order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip will be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on public property (like the road). Then, choose the day you need the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment using our secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Matlock on the day you have chosen.
What things can I put in the skip?
This is amongst the most popular questions people have about hiring a skip. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you may fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of waste which can come from garden work, building work and home clearances.
Among the most frequent things which we collect in our skips include garden soil, wood, bush trimmings, kitchen units, bathroom suites, and various household products.
There are some items that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This consists of any electrical items (dishwashers, monitors or washing machines for example), tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them needs to comply with an entirely different procedure to make sure they don’t result in damage to the environment.
What is the cost of skip hire in Matlock?
Our goal is to deliver the cheapest skip hire service in Matlock. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have a skip placed on the highway or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the added price of a skip permit.
Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?
You don’t have to be at home when your skip is going to be delivered, but it will help. Being there when your skip is delivered means you can make sure the delivery driver can be given complete access and that your skip will be positioned exactly where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is being hired to your business premises, we will appreciate your support during delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, in the event you can’t be available during delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to let us know when you place your order, and then we will organise things from there.
Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?
No, you must only pack the skip up to the level load line. Piling waste up over this line will make it dangerous to move, and you could be asked to take off the surplus waste before your skip can be collected. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and can also make it overweight.
