When will the skip be delivered to me?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a day that best suits you. We can normally offer a following day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, because to go on public property (such as a highway), you will need to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it turning up within a AM or PM slot.

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?

For those who have a small quantity of rubbish to get rid of, a mini skip may be the perfect choice. What size is referred to as a mini skip varies from company to company, according to what sizes they offer.

The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to have a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. Price is based on the specific size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are best for residential work like small DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you need it put on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

What things can I put in my skip?

A skip may be used to get rid of a variety of types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and handling numerous items generated from building work, garden landscaping and property tidy-ups. Examples of permitted waste materials include things like:

  • Home furnishings
  • Hedge cuttings
  • Soil
  • Stone and concrete
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

The majority of materials are usually accepted, so whether you need to discard metals, plastics, wood or textiles, we can normally take your waste away.

The volume and things you discard in the skip will vary depending on the size skip you have ordered. All skips have a weight limit for safety purposes. So to be able to get rid of garden soil and rubble, for example, the largest size container you would be able to hire would be the 8 cubic yard skip.

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

There are a few items you will not be able to throw out in the skip. The reason for this is that these products contain hazardous elements that may cause damage to the environment. They could also be harmful to human health, and so they need to be discarded separately under UK law.

A few examples of the items which are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer screens
  • Battery packs
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be in on the day it is delivered. Then you can ensure that the skip lorry has total access and that the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it. The same applies for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly when gates restrict access.

Having said that, if that is not possible, you do not need to stress. Just tell us when you are making your booking, and we will handle everything.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?

After you have finished with your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste transfer station either in or local to Newent where we will sort the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Newent?

In most situations, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or residence, you need to secure authorisation from the local council in Newent, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we would gladly organise this for you, therefore it’s one less point to think about. The council will charge a fee for the license, and you should be aware before ordering that obtaining the permit will often take up to 2 working days.

What is classed as a builder’s skip?

The term builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yd skip. The name originates from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These big containers are suited to numerous domestic and industrial projects. They are the largest skip sizes which you can use for heavy builders waste including soil, rubble and concrete.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can normally have a skip for as long as 14 days from the date of delivery. You may give a chosen collection date when you place your order. Otherwise, you can let us know after you have finished, and we will plan the collection. Normally, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take a bit longer during busy times.

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

Our aim is to offer the lowest priced skip hire service in Newent. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip you hire. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you need to have the skip located on the road or other council property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of the skip permit.

Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?

Unfortunately this is not allowed, since electrical products like old televisions, cookers, computers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.

Am I allowed to stack up the waste in my skip?

It is important never to overload your skip, as you risk being told to remove excess waste prior to it being picked up. Whatever size you order, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, because moving an overloaded bin can be dangerous, as materials could fall and result in injury or damage to others.

To prevent this issue, please be sure you hire a size suited to your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some extra rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.

Other areas covered include Thornbury, Lydney, Stow-on-the-Wold, Moreton-in-Marsh, Northleach, Tewkesbury, Tetbury and Stroud.
