Mildenhall Skip Hire FAQs
What size skips do you offer?
Skips are available in a number of different sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small household jobs.
Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold around 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yd is a great choice for loft clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more significant waste disposal task to sort out, the builder’s skip may be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, these represent the most typical sizes used by builders for building waste, such as clay and rubble. But they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We can also deliver 10-16 yard containers and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For more information about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most commonly used for construction and demolition jobs. There are generally two skip sizes that can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers which you can use to get rid of large quantities of construction and demolition waste, including soil, concrete and rock.
Although branded a builders skip, they can of course be used for multiple other domestic and business waste disposal jobs.
How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are substantial industrial size skips that are used primarily within the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for companies that produce large volumes of waste materials.
Can you deliver to other areas in Suffolk?
We provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service by using a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you want skip hire in Mildenhall, Ipswich, Woodbridge, Lowestoft or any other location in Suffolk, we can help.
Where will my rubbish be taken to when the skip is picked up?
As soon as 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 streams, such as wood, metals, paper, etc. This makes sure that as much of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size delivered by skip firms and is perfect for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some firms provide a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
Which skip sizes have a drop door?
Having a skip which has a drop down door can make loading waste into it so much easier. This is especially the case with heavy materials like garden soil or rubble, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of big bulky objects such as household furniture a lot easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop door, however this will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a drop door is required, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Mildenhall?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you would like your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or home, you will need to secure permission from the local authority in Mildenhall, which is referred to as a permit. If necessary, we will be glad to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less thing to think about. The council will charge a fee for the skip license, and you should be aware before ordering that getting the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.
Will a skip hire company from Mildenhall deliver my skip?
As we offer a UK-wide waste management service, we use a diverse network of verified businesses. These range from small family-run skip hire businesses to national waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental principles.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip will be delivered when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we cannot guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You have to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will normally incur a fee for the wasted trip.
Is it okay to fill the skip above the top?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it dangerous to transport, and you may have to empty any contents higher than the level load mark. This means you cannot make use of sheets of timber, doors or another item, since this will increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty to make sure that containers are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure you select the correct size of skip for your requirements and get in touch if you are not sure which size is best. We would be glad to help.
What can I put in the skip?
Prior to hiring your skip, it is important to check that the type of waste you need to dispose of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you are able to put in your skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use a skip to dispose of building and demolition waste, like old bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Examples of prohibited items include electrical goods, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be disposed of separately from general waste.
What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Mildenhall?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us if the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on council property (like the street). After that, choose the day you want the skip to be delivered. Check your order and make payment with our secure online payment platform. Job done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Mildenhall on the date you have selected.
How much will skip hire in Mildenhall cost?
Our goal is to offer the most affordable skip hire service in Mildenhall. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you need to have a skip placed on the street or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the additional expense of a skip permit.
Am I allowed to put electrical products in my skip?
Unfortunately not, as electronic items including old TVs, fridge freezers, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects need to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly manner.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip is delivered?
No, you do not have to be at home when we deliver your skip. Providing we can access the place you want it located, we can take care of everything.
In the event you will not be at home, simply let us know any relevant delivery directions when you book the order. For instance, you might prefer the skip to be positioned at a particular side of your driveway. Alternatively, you might need to ensure that the skip does not obstruct access to your garage.
Whatever the case may be, simply let us know when ordering, and then we will ensure the instructions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
Usually, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you do not need to rush through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.
