Newquay Skip Hire FAQs

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?

The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a huge container that is used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These bins are mainly for industrial use but can be hired by domestic customers too. However, you will require plenty of room because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger than the typical skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, RORO containers can only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and paper, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and bricks.

Can you deliver to other areas in Cornwall?

Along with delivering skips to Newquay, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Cornwall. With the help of a network of local and national waste management companies, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to Newquay, Launceston or Wadebridge, we have got you covered.

What types of waste am I able to get rid of in a skip?

You can put a wide array of waste into the skip. This can include wood, tile, metal or bricks from a household clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, dirt and rock from garden tasks are allowed also. Dated units from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be discarded in a skip.

However, there are a few items that you can’t put in a skip a result of the potential environment or health risks they may cause.

You can not get rid of your fridge, television or your old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items incorporate hazardous components in one type or another. They should be disposed of separately from normal waste.

If you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to arrange an independent service for this waste. Please email us for more details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.

What happens to the waste in my skip?

The contents of the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer station. Here the contents will be segregated by machines and also by hand into numerous waste streams, such as soil, paper, rubble and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Newquay?

We utilise a network of both regional and national skip hire firms to supply skips to our customers in Newquay and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner skip companies are verified and evaluated to guarantee they match our expectations for cost, service, recycling and reliability.

Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items need to be kept separate from general waste to get recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electronic goods including washing machines, TVs, toasters, laptops and even hairdryers.

Is it okay to fill my skip above the side?

It is important not to overfill your skip, as you risk being required to remove surplus waste prior to it being collected. Whatever size you hire, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, as transporting an overloaded skip can be unsafe, as objects could fall and cause injury or damage to others.

To prevent this situation, please be sure you hire a size suitable for your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some further rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.

How big is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact skip offered by skip firms and is ideal for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies offer a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

Do I have to be there when the skip is going to be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be in when it is delivered. You can then ensure the lorry has complete access and that the skip is placed exactly where you need it. The same is true when you have a skip delivered to company property, particularly when gates limit access.

On the other hand, when this is not possible, you do not have to be concerned. Simply let us know when you are placing your booking, and then we will handle everything.

Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Newquay?

In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need your skip to be placed on land outside of your company or residence, you will have to get permission from your local council in Newquay, which is called a skip permit. If required, we will be happy to arrange this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less point to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for the license, and you should know before placing your order that obtaining the licence will often take up to two working days.

Will my skip have a drop down door?

For anyone who is hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is made for getting rid of heavy building and demolition waste, as it can be pushed into the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop-down door, although these are generally less common. The reason being these sizes are generally low enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip that has a drop door is provided.

What skip sizes do you offer?

We provide a full range of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for small DIY projects and house clearances. A common option for bigger jobs, renovations and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Newquay businesses which produce a significant quantity of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

You can typically keep your skip for as long as two weeks from your date of delivery. You may give a preferred collection day at the time you make your order. Alternatively, you can let us know once you have finished, and we will prepare the collection. Normally, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a little longer during busy periods.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These will be the biggest containers that can be used to get rid of substantial construction waste materials such as stone, bricks, gravel or clay.

The builders skip is ideal for a wide range of tasks. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing out your attic, these substantial skips will often be the most cost-effective choice available.

How much will skip hire in Newquay cost?

The cost of getting a skip in Newquay is determined by the size of skip you require. The least expensive skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you require a bigger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also be more if you need to have a skip on the highway, because you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

We have created our online booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. The first step is to type in your address to check out all the different skip sizes we can provide in Newquay. Pick the right size to meet your requirements and provide the details of where and when you would like the skip delivered.

How fast can you deliver a skip in Newquay?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We will typically give a following day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, as to be on public property (such as a street), you need to obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.
