Newport (Shropshire) Skip Hire FAQs

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

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

When you are not going to be in, simply let us have any relevant delivery instructions when you place the order. For example, you might need the skip to be located on a particular area of the drive. Or you might want to ensure that the skip does not hinder use of your garage.

No matter what the situation might be, tell us when you place your order, and then we will ensure the instructions will be passed to the delivery driver.

For additional information about our choice of skips, such as measurements and the waste they can be used for, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

You can generally keep your skip for up to a fortnight from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, there is the choice of offering a preferred collection date when making your order.

Otherwise, just tell us when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in many cases, it will be the next working day.

It may take a little bit longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, however we will always endeavour to be there as quickly as possible.

What waste materials can I put in the skip?

You are able to load the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from home clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, dirt, bricks, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you put in your skip will depend on which size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, in the event that you are using your skip for heavy building wastes such as stone or dirt, the largest size you could hire is an 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials cannot be discarded in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.

Will you deliver to other areas in Shropshire?

Yes, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skip sizes to areas across Shropshire, such as Newport, Telford, Ellesmere and Wem. So regardless of where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

Will a Newport skip hire company deliver my skip?

We utilise a network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to supply skips to our clients in Newport and the rest of the country. Each of our partner skip hire providers are verified and tested to make certain they satisfy our standards for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

Getting a skip which has a drop down door will make filling waste into it much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste such as garden soil and concrete, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading up large bulky objects such as household furniture a lot easier as well.

Most skips can be supplied with a drop door, but this may sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when making your booking if a drop door is needed, and we will do our very best to deliver this.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Newport?

Usually, it will be possible to get the skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to get this done, you need to get consent from your local authority in Newport, which is called a skip permit. We can organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for this license, and it may sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to authorise this.

What happens to the rubbish in the skip?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into various waste materials, like wood, metals, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Is it okay to fill my skip higher than the top?

No. You are only allowed to pack your skip up to the level load mark. Loading rubbish up over this line will make it dangerous to transport, and you can be asked to take away the surplus waste before the skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Newport?

Our goal is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Newport. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip that you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have your skip located on the street or other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the added price of the skip permit.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The term builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The term originates from the fact that they are the most typical sizes that are hired by general builders and tradespeople.

These large skips are suitable for numerous types of domestic and business jobs. They are the biggest skip sizes which can be used for hefty builders waste such as top soil, rubble and concrete.

How long will it take to get a skip in Newport?

We will ensure your skip is provided when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the very next day.

Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

It is important to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will most likely incur a fee for the wasted trip.

How do you order a skip?

This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you would like to hire. Let us know whether the skip will be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (like the road). Next, pick the day you need your skip to get delivered. Check your order details and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Newport on the date you have chosen.

How large is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered by skip firms and is designed for smaller DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip firms offer you a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

Am I allowed to throw electrical items in my skip?

No, you can not put old or unwanted electronic waste products in a skip. This can include items like laptops, cookers, tumble dryers, fridges and televisions. Electrical products can’t be thrown in your skip because they can have hazardous materials and components.

Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial industrial scale skips that are used predominantly within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for organisations that produce large amounts of waste materials.

Other areas covered include Telford, Ellesmere, Wem, Broseley, Whitchurch, Craven Arms, Much Wenlock and Oswestry.
