It will also make loading up big bulky objects such as household furniture much easier as well.

The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, although this may sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a drop door is required, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you run a business in Much Wenlock and wish to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container could be a perfect choice. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips that are available.

As the name suggests, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, in contrast to regular skips, that are picked up by using chains.

How long can I hire the skip for?

What is classed as a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most commonly hired for building and demolition jobs. There are typically two sizes which can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to get rid of substantial volumes of building and demolition waste, including soil, rubble and rock.

Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for various other residential and commercial waste disposal tasks.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Much Wenlock?

In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or home, you will need to obtain authorisation from your local council in Much Wenlock, which is referred to as a skip permit.

The council will charge a fee for your skip license, plus you should be aware before placing your order that obtaining the permit will often take up to two working days.

Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?

The rubbish in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer facility. Here the waste will be separated by machines and also by hand into various waste materials, like metal, paper, stone and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to increase the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.

How quickly can you deliver a skip in Much Wenlock?

We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you complete your order before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver, we endeavour to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Much Wenlock?

Our goal is to offer the cheapest skip hire service in Much Wenlock. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip that you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have a skip placed on the street or other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the added cost of a skip permit.

Is it okay to fill my skip above level load line?

Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it unsafe to transport, and you will probably have to remove any materials higher than the level load line. This means that you are unable to use sheets of timber, doors or any other object, as this will increase the size of the skip. We have a legal responsibility to ensure that skips are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure you choose the appropriate sized skip to meet your needs and get in touch if you’re uncertain which size is best. We would be pleased to help.

What types of waste am I allowed to throw in a skip?

It is possible to put a wide array of waste types into your skip. This includes timber, ceramic tiles, metal or rubble from a house clearance. Plant and bush clippings, dirt and rock from garden tasks are permitted as well. Worktops and units from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be discarded in a skip.

There are, however, some things that you cannot put in a skip a result of the possible environment or health risk they might cause.

You can not get rid of your refrigerator, computer monitor or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items contain hazardous elements in one kind or another. They must be disposed of separately from your normal rubbish.

Should you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to arrange a separate collection for this waste. Please email us for further information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling centre.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Much Wenlock?

We use a network of both local and national skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in Much Wenlock and the rest of the country. Our partner firms are verified and tested to ensure they match our expectations for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.

How big is the mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest size provided by skip firms and is perfect for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip firms will provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

What skip sizes can you provide?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Much Wenlock, you will have various sizes to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard container, often referred to as a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for modest domestic clearances and DIY work.

Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most frequent sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also means they are great for household tidy ups including bulky items such as furniture and beds.

We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These sizes are only appropriate for light waste materials, so they can’t be used to get rid of garden soil or rubble.

Other areas covered include Ludlow, Cleobury Mortimer, Church Stretton, Newport, Wem, Broseley, Market Drayton and Shrewsbury.
