Newton Abbot Skip Hire FAQs
How much does skip hire in Newton Abbot cost?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Newton Abbot, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display which skip sizes we offer in your town and how much each one will cost to order. If your skip is going on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
You can in most cases keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from your delivery date. You are able to provide a chosen pick up day at the time you make your order. Otherwise, you can let us know after you have loaded the skip, and we will arrange your collection. Normally, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during hectic periods.
Am I allowed to stack up the waste in my skip?
It is very important never to overload your skip, as you risk being asked to take out excessive waste before it can be collected. Regardless of what size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since moving an overloaded skip can be hazardous, as waste could drop and cause personal injury or damage to other people.
To avoid this situation, please be sure to order a size appropriate for your waste removal needs. If your skip is full and you have more waste to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
Will a Newton Abbot skip hire company deliver my skip?
As we provide a national waste management service, we utilise a comprehensive network of verified businesses. These vary from small local skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental standards.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are perfect for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and old toys to paving blocks and garden soil. Having a volume of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip will save you needing to make several trips to the local recycling centre.
If I want a skip on the road in Newton Abbot, will I need to get a permit?
In most cases, it is possible to have the skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But in order to do this, you need to get approval from the local authority in Newton Abbot, which is known as a skip permit. We will order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for your license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.
Am I allowed to put all sorts of rubbish in a skip?
This is amongst the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you can load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of types of waste which will come from garden projects, building work and property clearances.
Some of the most typical items that we see in our skips include soil, timber, tree cuttings, kitchen units, bathroom suites, as well as other household items.
There are also some things that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This includes any electrical goods (tumble dryers, televisions and laptops for example), old tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all classed as hazardous waste, and disposing of them needs to adhere to a completely different process to make sure they do not result in harm to the environment.
Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
No, you cannot dispose of old electrical waste items in your skip. This includes such things as computers, cookers, washing machines, fridges and tv sets. Electric products can’t be thrown in a skip because they can contain hazardous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
It usually is a good idea to be there when anyone delivers anything to your home. That enables you to ensure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be positioned just where you want it.
The same goes for those who have a business. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big industrial scale skips used mainly in the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for organisations that produce large quantities of waste materials.
Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?
The vast majority of skips can be delivered with a drop door, making them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the container, particularly with heavy materials, such as dirt and rubble, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, like furniture.
What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Newton Abbot?
Hiring a skip should not be difficult. This is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter your delivery address to see all the different skip sizes we can deliver to Newton Abbot. Select the size you wish to order, and confirm whether it will be positioned on your own property. Enter your details and then make payment using our secure payment platform.
When your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with all of your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
What happens to the waste in the skip?
After you have finished with your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste recycling centre in or local to Newton Abbot where we will sort the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We can provide a full-range of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip suitable for modest DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A common choice for more substantial projects, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Newton Abbot firms with a big quantity of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Can you deliver to other areas in Devon?
Sure, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skips to areas throughout Devon, including Newton Abbot, North Tawton, Higher Dunstone and Northam. So no matter where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
How long does it take to get a skip in Newton Abbot?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We will usually give a next day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, since to be on public property (like a highway), you must obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of many factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it turning up within a AM or PM slot.
What is a builders skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The term comes from the fact that these are the most typical sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.
These substantial skips are fantastic for numerous types of household and commercial tasks. These are the biggest size skips which you can use for weighty builders waste such as top soil, rubble and gravel.
