Newmarket Skip Hire FAQs
What size skips do you offer?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Newmarket, you have several sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is great for small domestic clearances and DIY work.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also means they are ideal for house tidy ups involving large objects such as household furniture and beds.
We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people and businesses with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they cannot be used to get rid of soil or rubble.
To get more information about the various sizes available, including proportions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Can I throw away electronic items in my skip?
Electrical products such as TVs, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore should not be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electrical items need to be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Newmarket?
This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if the skip will be on your private property, such as a driveway or inside your business premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, and then we can make the required arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on private property, you will save some pounds.
What is the cost of skip hire in Newmarket?
This will depend on the size you want and whether you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the least expensive option. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in business settings.

Is it ok to fill up the skip higher than the level load mark?
It is important not to overload your skip. You can not pass the level load mark indicated on the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it will become very unsafe to move. Which means that if you overload the skip, you might be asked to remove the surplus rubbish. No matter how safe you feel the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. That is hazardous and is therefore prohibited.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact size offered by skip companies and is ideal for smaller DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some companies provide a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
What size skips can have a door?
When you are selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is great for getting rid of heavy building and construction waste materials, as it can be walked in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop-down door, although these are generally more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our very best to ensure a skip with a drop door is supplied.
Will a Newmarket skip hire company deliver my skip?
To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work in partnership with a number of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we can offer customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
If you have a company in Newmarket and want to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container might be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers that are available.
As the name suggests, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to regular skips, that are picked up by using chains.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will make sure your skip is provided on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we can’t guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You should ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will often incur a charge for the wasted trip.
How long can I hire the skip for?
You can typically keep a skip for up to two weeks from the delivery date. You are able to provide a chosen pick up day at the time you place your order. Alternatively, you can let us know after you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare your collection. Generally, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take a bit longer over busy periods.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be there on the day it is delivered. You can then ensure that the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip is placed exactly where you need it. The same is applicable when you have a skip delivered to company property, particularly when gates restrict access.
However, when this isn’t possible, you don’t have to stress. Just let us know when you are making your booking, and we will take care of everything.
How do I order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you wish to hire. Tell us whether the skip shall be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on local authority property (such as the street). After that, pick the day you want the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and make payment with our secure online payment system. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to Newmarket on the day you have chosen.
Will you deliver skips across Suffolk?
Sure, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skips to locations across Suffolk, including Newmarket, Framlingham, Acton and Saxmundham. So regardless of where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
What waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
You can throw a variety of waste types into the skip. This includes timber, bathroom tiles, plastics or bricks from a property clearance. Tree and bush clippings, dirt and stone from garden tasks are permitted also. Units from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be discarded in your skip.
However, there are things that you are not allowed to put in a skip due to the potential environment or health risk they may trigger.
You are unable to throw in your refrigerator, laptop or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items consist of hazardous elements in one kind or another. They must be disposed of separately from general waste.
If you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to schedule an independent service for this material. Feel free to get in touch for more information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
What size is a builders skip?
The term builder’s skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The label originates from the fact that they are the most popular sizes that are hired by builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are ideal for numerous residential and business projects. These are the biggest size skips which you can use for weighty builders waste such as dirt, stone and concrete.
What will happen to the waste?
The items in the skip will be taken to the local waste recycling station. Here the rubbish will be separated by machinery and also by hand into various waste materials, like metal, plastics, stone and wood. Processing the waste in this way helps to increase the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.
