Newark-on-Trent Skip Hire FAQs
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the various waste materials, including timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Unfortunately it is not permitted, because electronic items including old TVs, freezers, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items need to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly way.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge commercial scale skips that are used mainly in the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for businesses that produce significant volumes of waste.
Am I allowed to load up the skip above level load mark?
It is very important not to overload your skip, as you risk being asked to take off surplus waste prior to it being picked up. Whatever size you order, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, as moving an overloaded skip will be hazardous, as materials could fall and result in personal injury or damage to others.
To prevent this problem, please make sure you hire a size appropriate for your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full but you have some further rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
For those who have a small amount of waste to throw out, the mini skip might be the best option. What size is identified as a mini skip differs from business to business, according to what sizes they provide.
2 cubic yards is the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The price is dependent on the particular size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are great for household jobs including modest DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
What different sizes do skips come in?
Skips come in a selection of different sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is perfect for small residential jobs.
The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a great choice for loft clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
When you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to sort out, the builder’s skip could be the best option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name implies, they are the most popular sizes hired by builders for building waste, like soil and rubble. But they can equally well be hired for household waste such as old furniture or kitchen units.
We can also offer 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For further details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
Am I allowed to put all types of rubbish in a skip?
It is possible to put a variety of waste into the skip. This can include timber, floor tiles, plastics or rubble from a house clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, dirt and stone from garden jobs are allowed also. Dated cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also go in the skip.
However, there are things that you are not allowed to put in a skip a result of the possible ecological or health risk they could cause.
You can’t throw out your refrigerator, television or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these items contain hazardous components in one type or another. They should be discarded separately from general waste.
If you require hazardous waste removal, we may be able to schedule a separate service for this material. Feel free to email us for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
Do I have to be home whenever the skip will be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can be sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip can be situated exactly where you need it. The same is true if you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates restrict access.
Having said that, when this isn’t feasible, you do not have to stress. Simply let us know when you are placing your booking, and we will take care of everything.
Will you deliver skips across Nottinghamshire?
Absolutely. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we can deliver skips to both household and commercial customers throughout Nottinghamshire and anywhere else within the UK.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
You can normally keep a skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of giving a preferred collection time when you make your order.
Otherwise, simply let us know when you’ve finished loading up your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the next working day.
It can take a little while longer to pick up your skip over busy times, but we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.
Will the skip have a drop down door?
For anyone who is choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is made for disposing of heavy building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop door, though these are typically less common. This is because these sizes are typically small enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our very best to ensure a container with a drop door is provided.
Will a Newark-on-Trent skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip company will likely deliver your skip in Newark-on-Trent. We employ a network of both regional and national businesses to allow us to provide our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These companies are fully vetted to make sure they match the high principles we require when it comes to service, price and environmental performance.
How much will skip hire in Newark-on-Trent cost?
This is determined by the skip size you will need and whether you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the least expensive option. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in industrial settings.

When will the skip be delivered to me?
If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the next day. In some cases, we can even give you a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed during the online order process.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These are the biggest skips that can be hired to discard heavy building and demolition waste such as rock, bricks, gravel or clay.
The builder’s skip is ideal for a wide array of projects. If you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out the loft space, these big skips are often the most cost-effective choice available.
If I need a skip on a road in Newark-on-Trent, will I need a permit?
Generally, it is possible to get your skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to get this done, you will need to get approval from your local council in Newark-on-Trent, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for the permit, and it may sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
