How much does skip hire in Minchinhampton cost?

We will instantly display which sizes we provide in your town and how much each option will cost you to order. If the skip is going on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Minchinhampton?
Generally, it will be possible to have your skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to do this, you must have consent from your local authority in Minchinhampton, which is called a skip permit. We can order this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for your permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
Once 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 materials, including timber, metals, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact size delivered by skip companies and is great for small DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some companies provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
What is the size of a builders skip?
A builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These are the biggest containers used to get rid of heavy building and demolition waste materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or soil.
A builder’s skip is perfect for a variety of projects. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning out your shed, these substantial skips tend to be the most affordable option available.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Minchinhampton?
We use a network of both local and national skip hire companies to supply skips to our customers in Minchinhampton and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner skip companies are approved and evaluated to make sure they meet our standards for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
Do I have to be there whenever the skip is delivered?
You don’t need to be home when your skip is going to be delivered, however it does help. Being there whenever the skip is being delivered means you can ensure the delivery driver can be given full access and that the skip can be placed exactly where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is delivered to company property, we will appreciate your support during the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, for those who can’t be available during delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you place your order, and then we will organise everything from there.
Is it okay to stack up waste in my skip?
It is vital to not overload the skip. You should not pass the level load mark that is shown along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it becomes very hazardous to move. Which means that if you overfill your skip, you may be required to take away the excess rubbish. Regardless of how safe you think the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be hazardous and is prohibited.
What size skips can you deliver?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Minchinhampton, you will have various options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for small house clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their large capacity also means they are well suited for house tidy ups including bulky items like pieces of furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even larger waste disposal requirements. These sizes are only appropriate for light waste materials, so they cannot be hired to dispose of soil or stone.
To get more information regarding the different skip sizes available, including measurements, check out our guide to skip sizes.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
Getting a skip which has a drop door makes filling waste into the skip much easier. This is especially the case with heavy waste materials such as garden soil or rubble, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make disposing of large bulky objects such as household furniture easier as well.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, however this will sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when placing your booking if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.
What types of waste am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?
Before ordering your skip, it is essential to check that the kind of waste materials you intend to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials must be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you can put in your skip include home items like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You can also use a skip to throw out building and demolition waste, such as bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Some examples of restricted items include electronic goods, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be discarded separately from general rubbish.

We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your booking prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive, we try to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery position, as failed delivery attempts will result in a charge for the wasted trip.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products have to be kept separate from general waste materials to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electronic products including cookers, TVs, kettles, laptops and even hair straighteners.
