Newport Skip Hire FAQs
What things can I put in the skip?
You can load the skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly produced from loft clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, top soil, stone, hedge trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in your skip will depend on the skip size you have hired, as there is a weight restriction. For instance, when you will be using your skip for heavy building waste like concrete or garden soil, the maximum size you would be able to use is an 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be disposed of in the skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.
Can you deliver skips across Isle of Wight?
We offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service through a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you want skip hire in Newport, Yarmouth, East Cowes, Ventnor or another area in Isle of Wight, we are able to help.
What will happen to the waste in my skip?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get segregated into a range of waste streams, such as stone, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Do you use local skip hire companies in Newport?
A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Newport. We employ a network of both regional and national providers to enable us to offer our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are assessed to make certain they satisfy the high expectations we demand with regards to service, price and environmental performance.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you operate a business in Newport and wish to get rid of substantial quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a great choice. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips available.
As the name indicates, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike conventional skips, which are lifted using chains.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be at home when your skip is being delivered, however it can help. Being there when the skip arrives means that you can ensure the driver is given complete access and that your skip will be dropped precisely where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to a company property, we will appreciate your support during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Even so, when you can’t be around for delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you book your order, and then we will arrange things from there.
How soon can you deliver a skip in Newport?
We will ensure your skip will be provided on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the following day.
Although we are not able to guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
It is important to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted trip.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
If you have a small amount of waste to get rid of, the mini skip may be the ideal option. What size is referred to as a mini skip varies from company to company, determined by what sizes they have.
The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to have a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. The price depends on the particular size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are best for household work like small DIY projects and garden clean ups. If you want it put on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
Is it ok to stack up waste in my skip?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it dangerous to transport, and you will be asked to empty any rubbish over the level load line. This also means that you are unable to make use of sheets of timber, doors or some other object, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal responsibility to make sure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please be sure you hire the appropriate size of skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you’re unsure which size you require. We will be happy to help.
What size is a builders skip?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most commonly supplied for building and construction projects. There are generally two skip sizes which can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to dispose of substantial amounts of building and demolition waste, including soil, rubble and stone.
Although labelled a builders skip, they can be used for multiple other household and business waste disposal jobs.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
For anybody who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is ideal for getting rid of heavy building and construction waste materials, as it can be walked in to the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop door, although these are more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally small enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to ensure a container which has a drop door is supplied.
Am I able to throw electronic products in the skip?
No, you can not dispose of old or broken electrical waste products in a skip. This includes things like computers, hobs, washing machines, refrigerators and television sets. Electric items can’t be disposed of in the skip as they can include hazardous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
