Nailsea Skip Hire FAQs

Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, as electrical items such as old televisions, refrigerators, computers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects must be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly manner.

What is the size of a builders skip?

The builders skip is probably the most frequent skip that is ordered across the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is perfect for most building jobs, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 yard builder’s skip is the largest size which you can use for heavy waste matter including soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.

What is the process of ordering a skip in Nailsea?

Hiring a skip in Nailsea with us is incredibly easy. Choose the skip size you want and input a handful of details about when and where you need your skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then arrange to get your skip delivered to you.

What will happen to the waste in the skip?

Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into the different waste streams, such as timber, metals, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How long does it take to get a skip in Nailsea?

We can usually supply skips to Nailsea the following working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking platform will provide you with a range of delivery dates to select from. So whether you want your skip delivered ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.

Do you deliver skips across Somerset?

Yes, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver skips to locations throughout Somerset, including Nailsea, Castle Cary, North Petherton and Wells. So wherever you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

Am I able to dispose of all types of rubbish in my skip?

You are able to fill your skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly generated from house clearances, building work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, dirt, rubble, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you throw in your skip would depend on the skip size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight limit. For example, if you will be using a skip for heavy building waste including bricks or dirt, the largest size you would be able to use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials can not be discarded in a skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a number of sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is good for small household jobs.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great choice for shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial waste disposal task to undertake, a builder’s skip may be the best option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label implies, they are the most popular sizes hired by builders for construction waste, like clay and rubble. However they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen units.

We can also supply 10-16 cubic yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional details about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest skip available from skip firms and is good for small DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms provide a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a little 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 branded as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

If I want a skip on a road in Nailsea, will I need to have a permit?

In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like your skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or house, you need to secure permission from the local authority in Nailsea, which is known as a permit. If necessary, we will gladly organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less thing to worry about. The council will charge a fee for your skip permit, and you should be aware before booking that obtaining the licence can sometimes take up to 2 working days.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is delivered?

You don’t really need to be at home when your skip is going to be delivered, but it can help. Being home when the skip arrives means that you can make sure the lorry driver can be given full access and that the skip can be located precisely where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is being hired to your business property, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

Even so, for those who can’t be available for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you book your order, and we will arrange things from there.

How long can I keep a skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to a fortnight. In most cases, this gives you sufficient time to fill your skip. However, if you need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Of course, if you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange your pick up. Just tell us once you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are big industrial scale skips that are used mainly in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for businesses that generate large volumes of waste.

Will the skip come with a drop door?

Virtually all skips can be supplied with a drop door, which makes them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the container, particularly with weighty materials, such as dirt and gravel, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky items, such as household furniture.

Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?

It is important never to overload your skip, as you run the risk of being told to take off excessive waste prior to it being picked up. Irrespective of what size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since moving an overloaded container can be hazardous, as waste could fall and result in personal injury or damage to others.

To prevent this issue, please be sure you order a skip size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full but you have extra waste to dispose of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Nailsea?

A local skip hire firm will likely deliver your skip in Nailsea. We work with a network of both regional and national providers to allow us to provide our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These companies are vetted to make sure they match the high expectations we require when it comes to customer service, price and environmental performance.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Nailsea?

The cost of getting a skip in Nailsea will depend on the size of skip you want. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and clearances. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also be more if you need to have your skip positioned on the highway, because you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Other areas covered include Castle Cary, North Petherton, Wells, Yeovil, South Petherton, Axbridge, Midsomer Norton and Wellington.
