Northampton Skip Hire FAQs

What will happen to the waste in my skip?

The rubbish in the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling facility. Here the rubbish will be sorted by machines and also by hand into numerous waste materials, like metal, plastics, rubble and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are substantial commercial size skips used primarily within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for organisations that generate large amounts of waste.

Can I throw away electrical products in the skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items have to be kept separate from general waste to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric goods such as cookers, televisions, toasters, tablets and even hairdryers.

What is a mini skip?

If you have a small amount of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip could be the perfect choice. What size is described as a mini skip varies from company to company, according to what sizes they have.

2 cubic yards is probably the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The cost is based on the specific size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are great for household jobs like small DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you need it put on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

When will my skip be delivered?

We can normally deliver skips to Northampton the next working day when an order is made before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our online booking program offers you various delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like a skip to arrive ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.

How long can I hire the skip for?

You can typically keep a skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, there is the choice of providing a preferred collection time when making your order.

Otherwise, just let us know when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in many cases, it will be the next working day.

It can take a little while longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is delivered?

It usually is best if you can be available when anyone delivers anything to your property. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located precisely where you want it.

The same thing goes for those who have a business. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.

However, when it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.

Which skip sizes have a drop down door?

Typically, most skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you need a drop door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip that has a drop door is mainly helpful if you are hiring a big builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for midi and mini skips, since they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Is it okay to fill the skip higher than the top?

You should not fill a skip past the level load mark. If you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be safe and secure to transport, and you may be asked to remove any extra waste prior to it being collected.

If I would like a skip on the road in Northampton, will I need to have a permit?

Normally, it will be possible to get the skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to get this done, you must have approval from the local authority in Northampton, which is called a skip permit. We can arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for your permit, and it can sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to approve this.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is regarded as the frequent skip ordered across the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is ideal for most building and construction projects, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the largest size that you can use for hefty waste materials including soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.

What are the different skip sizes available?

Skips come in a wide range of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small residential projects.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a good option for garden clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more significant waste disposal job to undertake, the builder’s skip may be the best choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label implies, these represent the most common sizes ordered by builders for building waste, like clay and stone. However they can equally well be used for domestic waste such as broken furniture or kitchen units.

We can also supply 10-16 cubic yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further details about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What is the cost of skip hire in Northampton?

The price of hiring a skip in Northampton is determined by the size of skip you need. The lowest priced skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, like an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The cost will also be more if you need to have your skip positioned on the highway, since you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

What can I put in the skip?

You can load the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from loft clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include wood, soil, stone, garden trimmings, furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you throw in the skip depends on the size you have ordered, because there is a weight limit. For instance, in the event that you will be using the skip for heavy construction waste like concrete or soil, the largest size you would be able to get is the 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials cannot be discarded in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.

Other areas covered include Higham Ferrers, Thrapston, Oundle, Daventry, Burton Latimer, Irthlingborough, Kettering and Raunds.
