Nottingham Skip Hire FAQs
How long can I keep a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, that will provide you with plenty of time to fill up your skip. However, if you need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, should you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just let us know once you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to take on numerous tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be located on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most frequently chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can even tackle smaller commercial jobs.
What will happen to my rubbish when the skip is picked up?
The waste in your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer station. Here the contents will be segregated by machines and by hand into various waste materials, including metal, cardboard, stone and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Nottingham?
Usually, it is possible to get the skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But in order to do this, you will need to have consent from your local council in Nottingham, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council do charge a fee for the permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
Can I load my skip higher than the top?
It is very important never to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being required to remove excessive waste before it can be picked up. Whatever size you hire, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, since transporting an overloaded bin will be unsafe, as materials could drop and cause injuries or damage to other people.
To avoid this situation, please make sure you hire a skip size suitable for your waste removal needs. If your skip is full but you have additional rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
Will you deliver skips across Nottinghamshire?
Along with delivering our range of skips to Nottingham, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Nottinghamshire. With the help of a network of local and national skip hire companies, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Nottingham, Retford or Sutton in Ashfield, we have got it covered.
Do I have to be there whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be at your property when your skip will be delivered, however it will help. Being there when your skip is delivered means that you can ensure the lorry driver can be given complete access and that your skip will be dropped precisely where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is delivered to a business premises, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, for those who can’t be available for delivery, don’t worry. We just ask that you let us know when you book your order, and we will organise things from there.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is the most common skip which is used across the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is fantastic for most building and construction work, which is where the name stems from.
The 8 yd builders skip is the largest option that you can use for heavy waste matter including soil, concrete, rock and rubble.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Nottingham?
We utilise a network of both local and national skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in Nottingham and the rest of the UK. Our partner skip hire providers are approved and evaluated to make sure they match our expectations for price, customer service, recycling and reliability.
What can I put in the skip?
This is amongst the most common questions people have about our service. What is important to consider is that you may load your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are many types of rubbish which can come from garden work, construction work and property clearances.
Some of the most common items that we find in skips include garden soil, timber, hedge trimmings, cabinets, toilets, as well as other household items.
There are some waste materials that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This can include any electrical items (fridges, TVs and computers for example), old car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. These are all considered hazardous waste materials, and getting rid of them must comply with a completely different procedure to ensure they do not cause harm to the environment.
How quickly can you deliver a skip in Nottingham?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your order prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we strive to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery position, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can result in a fee for a wasted trip.

Do all skips come with a drop door?
The majority of skip sizes can be delivered with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the bin, particularly with weighty materials, such as garden soil and bricks, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, such as furniture.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge commercial size skips that are used predominantly in the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for businesses that produce large volumes of waste.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
Our company offers a full selection of skip sizes to residential and commercial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the various sizes on offer, with a rough idea of how much waste each size can hold:
- 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

Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?
No, you can not throw old or broken electrical waste products in a skip. This includes things like laptops or computers, cookers, dishwashers, freezers and tv sets. Electronic objects can’t be discarded in a skip since they can contain hazardous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
