Northam Skip Hire FAQs
Who will deliver my skip?
As we provide a nationwide skip service, we use an extensive network of verified and approved companies. These can vary from small family-run skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental expectations.
Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?
You should not fill up the skip beyond the level load line. When you fill it over the tip of this mark, it means that the skip is not safe to move, and you might be asked to remove any excess waste before it can be picked up.
Am I able to get a skip with a drop down door?
Generally, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and location. If you need a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip that has a drop door is mainly helpful if you are hiring a large builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow waste directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, as they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
Normally, you can have the skip for a maximum of two week. This means you do not need to rush through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be available when anybody delivers anything to your home. That enables you to ensure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be located exactly where you want it.
The same thing applies for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest skip offered by skip companies and is perfect for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip firms will offer a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Northam?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only require a skip permit when it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit if the skip will be on your private property, such as a driveway or within your business premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can place the skip on your own property, it will save you some pounds.
What sizes do skips come in?
We offer a full range of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip perfect for small DIY projects and household clearances. A popular option for more substantial projects, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Northam businesses with a large quantity of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will make sure your skip is delivered when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the following day.
Although we can’t promise an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You have to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will often incur a charge for the wasted trip.
Am I able to throw away electrical products in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, as electrical products including old televisions, freezers, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly manner.
Am I able to throw all types of rubbish in the skip?
Before hiring a skip, it is important to make sure that the kind of waste materials you want to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials have to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types you are able to throw in your skip include household items like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use your skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, like timber, soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Examples of prohibited items include electronic goods, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. These are all classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.

How much does skip hire in Northam cost?
This depends on the skip size you need and whether you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the lowest priced option. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in business settings.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The term comes from the fact that they are the most popular sizes ordered by builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are perfect for an array of domestic and business projects. They are the largest size skips that you can use for hefty builders waste such as garden soil, stone and concrete.
What will happen to my rubbish when the skip is collected?
When you have finished filling your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility in or local to Northam where we sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are large commercial scale skips that are used mainly within the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for organisations that generate significant volumes of waste.
