North Hykeham Skip Hire FAQs
What will happen to the waste?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into several different waste streams, such as wood, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?
No, you can not put old or unwanted electrical waste products in your skip. This includes such things as printers, cookers, tumble dryers, freezers and monitors. Electronic objects can’t be discarded in your skip as they can include hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is probably the most popular skip hired across the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builder’s skip is ideal for most building jobs, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 yd builder’s skip will be the largest size which can be used for hefty waste materials such as garden soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.
Is it possible to get a skip which has a drop down door?
Generally speaking, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, depending on size, availability and area. If you require a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Having a skip which has a drop door is primarily useful if you are choosing a big builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow waste into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How long can I keep a skip for?
Our standard hire time frame will be two weeks from your delivery date. Having said that, at the time you order your skip, you can choose a collection date that is perfect for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if your skip is finished with earlier than expected, tell us, and we will get it removed as quickly as possible.
We can usually be out to get your skip within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to bear in mind this may not be possible during busier times. Once collected, the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in North Hykeham?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you want the skip to be placed on land outside of your company or residence, you will need to obtain authorisation from your local authority in North Hykeham, which is referred to as a skip permit. If required, we would gladly organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less point to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for the license, and you should be aware before booking that getting the permit can often take up to two working days.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be available when anybody delivers anything to your property. You can then make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be located just where you need it.
The same goes if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, should it be unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.
How do I order a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you wish to hire. Let us know if the skip will be going on private property (a drive, for example) or local authority property (such as the road). Next, choose the date you want the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment with our secure online payment platform. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to North Hykeham on the date you have chosen.
Is it ok to fill the skip above level load mark?
No, you can only fill the skip up to the level load line. Loading rubbish up above this line will make it unsafe to move, and you might be told to remove the surplus waste before your skip can be removed. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and can also make it overweight.
How long does it take to get a skip in North Hykeham?
We can normally deliver skips to North Hykeham the following working day when your order is made before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking program will provide you with a number of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you want a skip to arrive asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
What is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some household rubbish, the mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to take on numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be positioned on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most commonly hired by household customers, the mini skip can even tackle smaller commercial jobs.
What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in the skip?
Before getting a skip, it is essential to ensure that the type of waste you intend to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials need to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types you are able to put in your skip include home items like furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use a skip to dispose of building and construction rubbish, such as wood, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Examples of forbidden items include electrical goods, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste and therefore have to be discarded separately from your general waste.
Will you deliver skips across Lincolnshire?
Of course, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver skips to areas across Lincolnshire, such as North Hykeham, Epworth, Spalding and Brigg. So wherever you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip, often known as a RORO, is a large container used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These skips are primarily for industrial use but can be used by residential clients too. Having said that, you will require plenty of space as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger compared to the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, roll-on roll-off containers should only be used for light materials such as plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not suited to disposing of soil and bricks.

Will a skip hire company from North Hykeham deliver my skip?
A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in North Hykeham. We employ a network of both regional and national companies to enable us to offer our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These firms are comprehensively vetted to ensure they fulfill the high expectations we require with regards to service, price and environmental performance.
What are the different skip sizes available?
When it comes to ordering a skip in North Hykeham, you have numerous sizes to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for small home clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also makes them perfect for household tidy ups involving large items such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These sizes are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they can not be hired to get rid of garden soil or stone.
For more details about the different sizes offered, including dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
