Minehead Skip Hire FAQs
What sort of rubbish can I get rid of in a skip?
Prior to hiring your skip, it is essential to make sure that the sort of rubbish you intend to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you could throw in a skip include home goods like furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use a skip to throw out building and demolition waste, including wood, top soil, rubble, metals and gravel.
Examples of prohibited items include electronic goods, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
What happens to my rubbish when the skip is picked up?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into the various waste streams, such as timber, metals, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How soon can you deliver a skip to Minehead?
We can typically deliver skips to Minehead the following working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking system offers you various delivery dates to select from. So whether you want a skip to arrive asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
Will you deliver skips across Somerset?
Yes. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we are able to offer skips to both household and commercial customers across Somerset and anywhere else in the UK.
How do you order a skip in Minehead?
We have built our online booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. Step one is to enter your delivery address to see all the different skip sizes we can deliver in Minehead. Select the best size to meet your requirements and provide us with the details of where and when you need your skip delivered. You then make payment through the secure payment platform, and we will send an email to verify the order as soon as your booking is done!
Which skip sizes have got a drop down door?
Generally, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Having a skip that has a drop door is mainly useful when hiring a large builder’s skip, since it allows you to wheelbarrow your waste directly into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, since they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Do I have to be there when the skip is due to be delivered?
It usually is best if you can be there when anybody delivers something to your property. You can then make sure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed just where you need it.
The same thing goes if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are substantial industrial size skips that are used primarily in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for companies that generate large quantities of waste.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
You can typically hire your skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, there is the option of providing a preferred collection day when you place your order.
Alternatively, just tell us when you’ve finished loading up your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the next working day.
It can take a bit longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, but we will always try to come as quickly as possible.
Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Electrical items like tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and so cannot be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered products need to be separated from other rubbish. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We offer a full selection of skip capacities to household and industrial customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

Will a Minehead skip hire company deliver my skip?
Since we provide a national skip hire service, we use a comprehensive network of verified and approved companies. These range from small family-run skip hire businesses to national waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental expectations.
Am I allowed to load the skip higher than the side?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it unsafe to transport, and you may be asked to empty any contents over the level load mark. This also means you are not allowed to make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other object, as this will increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal obligation to make sure that skips aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure that you order the correct size of skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you’re uncertain which size you need. We will be happy to help.
How big is the mini skip?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some household rubbish, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to take on many 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 from the council.
Although most often chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.
Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Minehead?
Generally, it will be possible to have the skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to do this, you must get consent from your local authority in Minehead, which is called a skip permit. We will arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
As the name indicates, a builders skip is the size of skip most commonly used for construction jobs. There are typically two different skip sizes that can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to get rid of significant amounts of building and demolition waste, like earth, concrete and stone.
Even though they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for a number of other domestic and commercial waste disposal tasks.
What is the cost of skip hire in Minehead?
This depends on the skip size you require and if you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the least expensive choice. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in industrial settings.
