North Petherton Skip Hire FAQs

Am I allowed to load up the skip above level load line?

You should not load a skip past the level load mark. When you fill it over the tip of this mark, it means your skip is not safe to transport, and you can be asked to remove any extra rubbish prior to it being picked up.

What size skips do you deliver?

Skips come in a wide range of sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is great for small domestic tasks.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold around 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a good choice for garden shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial waste disposal task to sort out, a builder’s skip might be the most suitable choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title indicates, they are the most frequent sizes hired by builders for construction waste, like clay and hardcore. However they can just as well be used for household rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also supply 10-16 yard skips and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional info on all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can usually have your skip for up to two weeks from your date of delivery. You are able to give a preferred collection day at the time you place your order. Alternatively, you can let us know once you have finished with the skip, and we will organise your collection. Generally, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer over hectic periods.

Will the skip come with a drop door?

For anybody who is hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop door. This is perfect for getting rid of heavy building and construction rubbish, as it can be walked in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop down door, although they are less common. The reason being these sizes are generally small enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, please let us know when placing your order. We will do our very best to make sure a skip which has a drop door is delivered.

What is classed as a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most commonly hired for building and construction jobs. There are typically two different skip sizes which can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of substantial amounts of construction and demolition materials, including dirt, concrete and bricks.

Even though they are labelled a builders skip, they can of course be used for multiple other household and commercial waste disposal tasks.

Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in the skip?

Electronic objects including tv sets, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore should not be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic objects should be separated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are huge commercial size skips that are used mainly within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for organisations that generate large quantities of waste.

Will you deliver skips across Somerset?

Absolutely. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we can supply skips to residential and industrial customers across Somerset and elsewhere in the UK.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household waste, the mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to tackle many jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

Although most commonly chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can even tackle smaller commercial jobs.

What happens to the rubbish?

When you have finished with your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste recycling station in or local to North Petherton where we segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?

No, you don’t have to be at home when we are delivering the skip. As long as we can access the place you want it positioned, we can take care of it all.

In case you are not going to be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when booking your order. For instance, you might prefer the skip to be located on a particular part of the drive. Or you might want to ensure that the skip does not prevent access to your garage.

No matter what the case may be, tell us when ordering, and then we will make sure your instructions are passed on to the lorry driver.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in North Petherton?

Preferably, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface area. For anyone who is carrying out a domestic project, then your driveway is going to be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public land, you will have to get a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be located on a road, grass verge or other public property in North Petherton. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be granted for you. An additional charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.

How much does skip hire in North Petherton cost?

Our goal is to give you the most affordable skip hire service in North Petherton. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip that you order. It 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 wish to have a skip situated on the highway or other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the added price of the skip permit.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will make sure your skip is delivered on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the next day.

Although we can’t promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You will need to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will normally incur a charge for the wasted trip.

What things can I put in the skip?

A skip may be used to get rid of a variety of types of waste materials. We are used to picking up and processing a wide variety of items from construction work, garden projects and property tidy-ups. Examples of allowed waste materials include things like:

  • Home furnishings
  • Garden cuttings
  • Top soil
  • Hardcore
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Cabinets and units

Most materials are permitted, and so whether you wish to throw out furniture, plastics, timber or old toys, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The volume and waste types you throw into your skip may vary according to the size skip you have chosen. Skips have a weight limit for safety purposes. So if you would like get rid of garden soil and gravel, as an example, the biggest size container you will be able to use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

What kind of materials am I not allowed to put in a skip?

There are several materials that you will not be able to dump in the skip. The main reason for this is that some goods incorporate hazardous materials which may damage the environment. They can also be harmful to human health, so they need to be disposed of separately under UK laws.

A few examples of the goods that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • PC screens
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard
