Newbury Skip Hire FAQs

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Newbury?

This depends upon the size you want and whether you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced choice. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used primarily in commercial settings. To receive an immediate quotation for skip hire in Newbury, enter your delivery postcode into the search box above.

Am I allowed to fill up the skip higher than the level load mark?

Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will then be asked to empty any items above the level load line. This means that you are not allowed to make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other item, since this will increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty to make sure that bins are not overfilled or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure to hire the correct size of skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you’re uncertain which size is best. We will be pleased to help.

What sort of waste am I able to throw in a skip?

You may use your skip to dispose of a variety of waste materials. We are used to collecting and processing a multitude of items from building work, garden landscaping and household clean-ups. A few examples of allowed waste types include things like:

  • Furniture
  • Garden trimmings
  • Garden soil
  • Concrete
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Cabinets and units

The majority of waste materials are accepted, and therefore whether you would like to dispose of metals, plastics, wood or fabric, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The quantity and materials you put into your skip may vary based on which size skip you have chosen. Skips do have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you wish to discard garden soil and bricks, for example, the biggest size container you would be allowed to hire would be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?

There are a few waste materials which you are not permitted to throw out in the skip. The main reason for this is that some items include hazardous elements which may damage the environment. They can also be harmful to human health, therefore they have to be discarded separately within UK legislation.

Some of the items that are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer screens
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Will a Newbury skip hire company deliver my skip?

To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work in partnership with a number of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to provide customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.

How big is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size available from skip firms and is designed for small DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms offer a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

Will you deliver to other areas in Berkshire?

Indeed, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skip sizes to areas throughout Berkshire, such as Newbury, Bracknell, Woodley and Hungerford. So wherever you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are big industrial scale skips that are used predominantly within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for companies that produce significant volumes of waste materials.

Am I able to have a skip with a drop door?

For anybody who is choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is great for getting rid of hefty building and demolition waste materials, as it can be pushed into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop-down door, though these are generally less common. This is because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our best to make sure a container that has a drop door is delivered.

Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?

No, you do not need to be at home when we deliver your skip. Providing we can access where you want it delivered, we are able to manage it all.

If you are not likely to be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when booking the order. For example, you might want the skip to be located on a particular part of your drive. Alternatively, you might want to make sure the skip doesn’t obstruct entry to your garage.

No matter what the case might be, simply tell us when you place your order, and then we will make sure your directions are passed on to the lorry driver.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We can in most cases deliver skips to Newbury the following working day when an order is made before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking program provides you with a range of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you need your skip delivered ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Newbury?

In the vast majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you want your skip to be situated on land outside of your company or house, you will need to secure permission from your local authority in Newbury, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we would be glad to organise this on your behalf, and so it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for your skip permit, plus you should know before ordering that getting the licence will often take up to 2 working days.

What size is a builders skip?

The builders skip is regarded as the popular skip which is used across the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builder’s skip is perfect for most building work, which is where the name originates from.

The 8 yard builders skip will be the biggest option which can be used for heavy waste materials including garden soil, concrete, stone and gravel.

What are the different skip sizes to pick from?

Skips are offered in a wide range of different sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small household tasks.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a good option for attic clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more substantial waste disposal job to handle, the builder’s skip may be the best choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title implies, these are the most popular sizes used by builders for construction waste, including clay and stone. However they can equally well be used for household rubbish such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

We also provide 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For additional details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What will happen to the rubbish?

The materials in the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer facility. Here the waste will be separated by machines and by hand into various waste streams, like metal, cardboard, stone and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.

How long can I keep the skip for?

You can usually have a skip for up to 2 weeks from your date of delivery. You are able to give a preferred pick up day at the time you place your order. Otherwise, you can let us know once you have loaded the skip, and then we will arrange the collection. In most cases, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer during busy periods.

Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, since electrical products including old TVs, cookers, printers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects have to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.
