Below are a few of the typical questions we receive about our skip hire service.
Minster Skip Hire FAQs
How big is a builder’s skip?
The phrase builders skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The name originates from the fact that they are the most typical sizes hired by builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are ideal for numerous types of domestic and industrial jobs. These are the largest skips which you can use for heavy builders waste including garden soil, rubble and concrete.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can in most cases have your skip for as many as 2 weeks from the date of delivery. You are able to give a preferred pick up day at the time you place your order. Alternatively, you can tell us when you have finished with the skip, and then we will prepare your collection. Generally, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during hectic times.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are great for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furniture and broken toys to paving blocks and rubble. Having a capacity of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make several journeys to your local recycling centre.
Can I throw electronic products in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, because electrical products like old televisions, refrigerators, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly manner.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Minster?
To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work with a number of local and national companies. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?
No, you don’t have to be at home when we deliver the skip. As long as we can gain access to the place you need it positioned, we are able to take care of it all.
If you are not going to be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when booking the order. For instance, you may need the skip to be dropped on a particular part of your property. Alternatively, you might want to ensure that the skip does not hinder access to your garage.
No matter what the situation may be, provide the details when you place your order, and then we will make sure the directions will be passed to the delivery driver.
What size skips can you offer?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Minster, you will have multiple options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for modest house clearances and DIY work.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also means they are ideal for house tidy ups including bulky items such as household furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only appropriate for light waste materials, so they can’t be hired to dispose of soil or concrete.
To get more information regarding the different skip sizes available, such as proportions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
What skip sizes can have a drop down door?
Getting a skip with a drop down door will make filling rubbish into the skip a lot easier. This is especially the case with heavy waste like dirt and hardcore, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up large bulky items like pieces of furniture a lot easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, however it will sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to provide this.
Will you deliver to other areas in Kent?
Sure, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skip sizes to areas across Kent, including Minster, Rochester, Chatham and Gravesend. So regardless of where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
How long does it take to get a skip in Minster?
We can usually supply skips to Minster the next working day when an order is made before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking platform will give you a number of delivery dates to select from. So whether you would like the skip to arrive ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
Where does the waste be taken to when the skip is picked up?
As soon as 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 the different waste materials, such as wood, metals, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Is it okay to fill my skip higher than level load line?
It is very important not to overload a skip, as you run the risk of being told to remove excessive waste before it can be picked up. No matter what size you order, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, because transporting an overloaded bin can be dangerous, as rubbish could fall and cause injuries or damage to other people.
To prevent this problem, please ensure you order a size suitable for your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some more waste to get rid of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
How much does skip hire in Minster cost?
This is determined by the size you will need and if you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the least expensive option. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in industrial settings.

What things can I put in the skip?
It is possible to load the skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly produced from garage clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include wood, dirt, concrete, hedge trimmings, furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in the skip will depend on which size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, when you are using a skip for heavy construction waste like bricks or dirt, the biggest size you can get is an 8 yard skip.
Some materials can not be disposed of in your skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
How do I order a skip?
Ordering a skip in Minster with us is incredibly easy. Decide on the skip size you require and input a few details about when and where you need the skip delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Minster?
If possible, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface. For anybody who is carrying out a residential task, then the driveway will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, if neither is available, the road or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public land, you will have to obtain a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be dropped on the street, grass verge as well as other public property in Minster. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be issued for you. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge commercial size skips used primarily within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for companies that produce significant amounts of waste materials.
