North Tawton Skip Hire FAQs
How long does it take to get a skip in North Tawton?
We will make sure your skip is provided on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You will need to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will normally incur a charge for the wasted trip.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a substantial container that is used to get rid of large quantities of waste. These skips are primarily for industrial use but can be used by domestic clients also. However, you will require lots of space as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger than the typical skip you will see on the roadside.
Due to the size, RORO skips should only be used for light materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and rubble.

Can I dispose of all sorts of rubbish in my skip?
You are able to fill up the skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly generated from home clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include wood, dirt, bricks, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you throw in the skip depends on which skip size you have hired, as there is a weight restriction. For instance, when you will be using a skip for heavy building waste including concrete or dirt, the biggest size you can use is an 8 cubic yard.
Some materials can not be discarded in the skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are fantastic for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furniture and broken toys to paving slabs and garden soil. With a total capacity of about 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you having to make numerous journeys to your local recycling centre.
What size skips have got a door?
When you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is ideal for getting rid of heavy building and demolition waste, as it can be walked in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop down door, although these are less common. This is because these sizes are generally low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our very best to ensure a container which has a drop door is delivered.
Am I allowed to put electrical products in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, because electrical items such as old televisions, refrigerators, laptops and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly manner.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The term builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The name comes from the fact that they are the most popular sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are suited to a wide variety of domestic and business projects. They are the biggest sizes that can be used for hefty builders waste including top soil, rubble and concrete.
Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the road in North Tawton?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a skip permit when it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit when your skip is on your private property, like a driveway or on your business premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us during the order process, so we can make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position your skip on your own property, it will save you some money.
Will a North Tawton skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in North Tawton. We make use of a network of both local and nationwide providers to enable us to offer our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are fully assessed to make sure they meet the high standards we demand with regards to customer service, price and environmental performance.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, that gives you plenty of time to fill up your skip. However, if you do need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, in the event you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange your pick up. Just tell us once you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.
Is it okay to load the skip higher than the side?
You must not load the skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means that your skip will not be secure to transport, and you may be asked to remove the excess waste prior to it being collected.

What will happen to the rubbish?
The contents of the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer centre. Here the waste will be segregated by machinery and also by hand into different waste streams, such as soil, cardboard, hardcore and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in North Tawton?
Our aim is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in North Tawton. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip located on the street or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the additional cost of the skip permit.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be there on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can make sure the lorry has complete access and that the skip can be placed exactly where you need it. This also is applicable when you have a skip delivered to business property, especially if gates limit access.
Having said that, if this isn’t feasible, you do not need to be concerned. Just tell us when you are placing your booking, and we will handle everything.
