Mitcheldean Skip Hire FAQs
Will you deliver skips across Gloucestershire?
In addition to delivering skips and containers to Mitcheldean, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Gloucestershire. By utilising our network of local and national skip hire and recycling companies, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering in Mitcheldean, Winchcombe or Gloucester, we have got it covered.
What skip sizes do you supply?
We are able to provide a full-range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip ideal for small DIY projects and domestic clearances. A common option for bigger projects, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Mitcheldean businesses which produce a significant quantity of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What is the cost of skip hire in Mitcheldean?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Mitcheldean, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display which sizes we offer in your area and how much each size costs to order. If your skip is going on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.
What can I put in my skip?
This is amongst the most popular questions people have about skip hire. What is important to consider is that you can fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of rubbish that will come from garden work, construction work and home clearances.
Among the most typical things which we find in our skips include garden soil, timber, bush trimmings, kitchen cabinets, baths, and various household items.
However, there are some items that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This consists of any electrical items (fridges and freezers, monitors and washing machines for example), old car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all deemed hazardous waste, and therefore getting rid of them has to follow an entirely different procedure to make sure they don’t cause harm to the environment.
What is classed as a builders skip?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the common skip which is ordered across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builder’s skip is ideal for most building and demolition work, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 yard builders skip is the biggest option that can be used for heavy materials like garden soil, concrete, rock and gravel.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
It usually is a good idea to be available when anybody delivers anything to your house. You can then ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed precisely where you need it.
The same thing applies if you have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, when it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods must be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electrical goods including tumble dryers, televisions, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.
What will happen to my waste once the skip is collected?
Once you have finished with your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer station in or local to Mitcheldean where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
What skip sizes can have a drop down door?
If you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is ideal for getting rid of heavy building and demolition rubbish, as it can be pushed in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop down door, although these are typically more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are generally low enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, please let us know when placing your order. We will do our best to ensure a container which has a drop door is provided.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you have asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your booking prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we strive to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery area, as failed delivery attempts will lead to a fee for a wasted journey.
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in Mitcheldean. We work with a network of both local and nationwide providers to enable us to provide our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are comprehensively vetted to ensure they meet the high standards we require when it comes to customer service, cost and environmental performance.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Mitcheldean?
Normally, it is possible to have the skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But in order to do this, you will need to get consent from your local council in Mitcheldean, which is known as a skip permit. We can order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council do charge a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
How do you hire a skip?
We have built our booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first step is to type in your delivery postcode to check out the range of skip sizes we can deliver in Mitcheldean. Select the best size to meet your needs and provide us with the details of when and where you need the skip delivered. After that you can make payment with our secure payment platform, and we will send you an email to verify the transaction once your booking is done!
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you run a business in Mitcheldean and wish to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container could be a perfect option. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips on the market.
As the label suggests, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, in contrast to regular skips, which are lifted using chains.
What size is the mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to tackle many jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be placed on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most often chosen by household customers, the mini skip can even tackle smaller commercial jobs.
How long can I keep a skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, this provides you with sufficient time to load your skip. However, if you do need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, in the event you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.
Can I fill my skip above the top?
It is important to not overload your skip, as you risk being told to remove excessive waste prior to it being picked up. Irrespective of what size you order, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, as transporting an overloaded skip can be dangerous, as objects could drop and cause injuries or damage to other people.
To prevent this issue, please be sure to hire a size appropriate for your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full and you have extra waste to get rid of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
