Newlyn Skip Hire FAQs

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

Normally, you can have the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t need to rush through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.

When will my skip be delivered?

If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. In some instances, we will even offer a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed during the order process.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

For anyone who is choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop door. This is designed for getting rid of hefty building and demolition waste materials, as it can be pushed in the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop down door, although they are less common. The reason being these sizes are generally low enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our very best to make sure a skip which has a drop door is provided.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you have a business in Newlyn and wish to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a great option. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips that you can hire.

As the label implies, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike normal skips, that are picked up by using chains.

Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?

You don’t really need to be at your property when the skip will be delivered, however it does help. Being there when your skip arrives means that you can ensure the lorry is given full access and that your skip can be dropped exactly where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is hired to your business premises, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

Having said that, if you can’t be around at the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask you to tell us when you book your order, and then we will organise things from there.

Am I allowed to put electrical products in my skip?

Electrical products such as TVs, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous type of waste and so can not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric objects have to be separated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

What size skips do you supply?

We provide a whole variety of skip capacities to residential and industrial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the massive 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

Here are the different sized skips you can choose from, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each skip can hold:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
  • 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
  • 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags

What waste materials can I put in the skip?

This is one of the most frequent questions people have about skip hire. The main thing to remember is that you may fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of types of waste which will result from garden projects, construction work and home clearances.

Some of the most common things which we see in skips include dirt, wood, tree cuttings, cupboards, toilets, and various household products.

There are some items that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This consists of any electronic objects (fridge freezers, monitors or computers for example), old tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all classed as hazardous waste, and therefore getting rid of them needs to adhere to an entirely different process to ensure they don’t cause damage to the environment.

How can I order a skip online?

This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us whether the skip is going to be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (like the road). After that, choose the day you need your skip to be delivered. Check your order and then make payment using our secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Newlyn on the day you have chosen.

Where will you take the waste from my skip?

After you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and get it. It will be transported to a waste recycling station in or local to Newlyn where we will separate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are fantastic for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furnishings and old baby toys to paving slabs and bricks. Having a volume of around 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make numerous trips to your local recycling centre.

Am I allowed to fill up my skip above the level load mark?

You must not load the skip past the level load line. When you load it above the tip of this mark, it means that the skip is not safe and secure to move, and you might be asked to remove the excess waste prior to it being collected.

Do you deliver skips across Cornwall?

As well as delivering skips and containers to Newlyn, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Cornwall. Through a network of local and national skip hire and recycling companies, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business in Newlyn, Falmouth or Wadebridge, we have got it covered.

What is classed as being a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most frequently supplied for building work. There are usually two sizes which can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to get rid of large volumes of construction and demolition waste, including soil, rubble and stone.

Although they are branded a builders skip, they can of course be used for multiple other domestic and business waste disposal jobs.

What is the cost of skip hire in Newlyn?

The cost of hiring a skip in Newlyn will depend on the size of skip you need. The least expensive option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you require a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also increase if you need to have your skip placed on the road, since you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Will a Newlyn skip hire company deliver my skip?

We utilise a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our clients in Newlyn and the rest of the country. Each of our partner skip companies are approved and evaluated to guarantee they satisfy our standards for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Newlyn?

In most cases, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want your skip to be located on land outside of your business or home, you have got to secure authorisation from your local authority in Newlyn, which is known as a permit. If necessary, we would be happy to arrange this for you, therefore it’s one less point to think about. The council will charge a fee for the skip permit, plus you should know before placing your order that securing the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.

Other areas covered include Falmouth, Wadebridge, Redruth, Bodmin, Saltash, Camelford, Looe and Higher Larrick.
