Melton Mowbray Skip Hire FAQs

Where does my rubbish be taken to when the skip is collected?

When you have finished with your skip, we will come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility either in or local to Melton Mowbray where we will separate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

Will a skip hire company from Melton Mowbray deliver my skip?

Since we provide a national skip hire service, we utilise an extensive network of approved businesses. These can range from small local skip hire firms to national waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental expectations.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. The name originates from the fact that these are the most popular sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These big containers are great for a wide variety of household and industrial projects. These are the biggest skips which you can use for heavy builders waste such as dirt, stone and concrete.

How can I hire a skip online?

Ordering a skip in Melton Mowbray through us is incredibly easy. Choose the skip size you want and input a handful of details about where and when you need the skip delivered. You can then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then schedule to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

How long can I hire a skip for?

You can generally keep a skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, there is the choice of providing a preferred collection time when placing your order.

Otherwise, simply let us know when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the following working day.

It might take a little while longer to pick up your skip during busy times, however we will always try to come as quickly as possible.

Can you deliver skips across Leicestershire?

As well as delivering skips to Melton Mowbray, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Leicestershire. By utilising a network of local and national skip hire companies, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering in Melton Mowbray, Coalville or Ashby-de-la-Zouch, we have got it covered.

Can I fill my skip higher than the top?

No. You are only allowed to load the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste materials up above this line makes it unsafe to move, and you could be asked to take off the extra waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects must be kept separate from general waste to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This includes all electric powered items including washing machines, monitors, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.

What is the cost of skip hire in Melton Mowbray?

Our goal is to offer the most affordable skip hire service in Melton Mowbray. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have a skip positioned on the street or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the added cost of the skip permit.

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

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a substantial skip that is used to get rid of large volumes of waste. These containers are primarily for business use but can be hired by residential customers also. Having said that, you need lots of room because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger when compared to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, RORO containers should only be provided for light-weight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and rubble.

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

No, you don’t need to be at home when we deliver the skip. So long as we are able to gain access to the place you want it located, we will take care of it all.

In the event you are not going to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when booking your order. For example, you may need the skip to be dropped on a particular side of the drive. Or you may want to ensure the skip doesn’t block access to your garage.

Whatever the case might be, simply tell us when you place your order, and we will make sure your instructions are passed on to the lorry driver.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Melton Mowbray?

In most cases, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need your skip to be located on land outside of your business or residence, you will need to secure permission from your local council in Melton Mowbray, which is known as a permit. If required, we will gladly organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less issue to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for your permit, and you should know before placing your order that securing the permit will often take up to 2 working days.

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to tackle numerous jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be located on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.

Although most often chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.

Am I able to have a skip that has a drop down door?

When you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is designed for disposing of heavy building and demolition rubbish, as it can be pushed into the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop door, although these are typically more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are generally low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our best to make sure a container with a drop door is supplied.

When will my skip be delivered?

If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the very next day. In some instances, we can even offer a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed as part of the order process.

Am I allowed to throw all kinds of rubbish in a skip?

You are able to fill up the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly generated from house clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, top soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, household furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you put in your skip depends on which size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight limit. For example, if you will be using a skip for heavy construction waste such as bricks or soil, the maximum size you could get is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

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

Other areas covered include Coalville, Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Lutterworth, Shepshed, Syston, Loughborough, Ibstock and Earl Shilton.
