Northleach Skip Hire FAQs
If I would like a skip on the road in Northleach, will I need to have a permit?
In most cases, it will be possible to get the skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But in order to do this, you will need to have approval from your local council in Northleach, which is known as a skip permit. We will organise this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for your permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.
What can I put in my skip?
This is amongst the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. The most important thing to consider is that you may fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of rubbish that may result from garden projects, construction work and property clearances.
Among the most typical things that we collect in skips include dirt, wood, bush trimmings, cabinets, sinks, and other household items.
There are also some things that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This includes any electrical items (refrigerators, TVs and washing machines for example), old car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. These are all considered hazardous waste materials, and therefore getting rid of them has to comply with a completely different procedure to make sure they do not result in damage to the environment.
How do I hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you wish to hire. Tell us whether the skip is going to be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or public property (such as the street). Then, choose the date you want your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment using our secure online payment platform. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to Northleach on the date you have chosen.
Is it ok to load up the skip above the top?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will have to empty any contents over the level load mark. This means that you cannot make use of sheets of wood, doors or some other object, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal obligation to make sure that containers are not overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure to select the correct sized skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you’re unsure which size you require. We would be happy to help.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can typically keep the skip for as long as 14 days from the date of delivery. You may give a chosen collection date when you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us after you have finished, and we will arrange your collection. Generally, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer during hectic times.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Northleach?
To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work together with a variety of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we can offer customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.
What happens to the waste?
After you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Northleach where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
No, you can not dispose of old electrical waste items in your skip. This can include things such as laptops, microwaves, tumble dryers, refrigerators and computer monitors. These objects can’t be disposed of in the skip since they can have dangerous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
Can I get a skip with a drop door?
Generally speaking, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you need a drop down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful when you are hiring a large builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow waste into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, as they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a substantial container used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These bins are primarily for business use but can be hired by domestic customers too. Having said that, you will require a lot of space because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger in comparison to the typical skip you will see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off skips should only be used for light materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and bricks.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
This site offers a full variety of skip sizes to domestic and industrial customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the different sizes to choose from, with a rough guide to how much waste each size is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
- 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

When will my skip be delivered?
When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the following day. In some instances, we can even give you a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed during the order process.
Do I need to be home when the skip is delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we deliver the skip. Provided that we are able to access the place you want it positioned, we will manage everything.
In the event you will not be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when you book the order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be located on a particular part of the driveway. Or you may want to ensure that the skip does not obstruct use of your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, simply let us know when ordering, and we will ensure the instructions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
How big is a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most commonly hired for building and demolition jobs. There are usually two skip sizes which can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of large quantities of building and demolition materials, including dirt, rubble and rock.
Although they are branded a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for multiple other household and business waste disposal jobs.
How much will skip hire in Northleach cost?
This depends on the skip size you will need and if you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the cheapest choice. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings.

How large is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some household rubbish, the mini skip could be just what 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 choice to handle numerous tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be positioned on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most often chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also handle small commercial jobs.
