Oakham Skip Hire FAQs

Where will you take the waste from my skip?

The waste in the skip will be taken to the local waste recycling facility. Here the waste will be segregated by machinery and by hand into various waste streams, such as metal, paper, rubble and wood. Processing the waste in this manner helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be there at the time it is delivered. You can then ensure the lorry has complete access and that the skip can be located exactly where you want it. This also applies for those who have a skip delivered to company property, especially when gates restrict access.

On the other hand, if that isn’t possible, you don’t have to stress. Simply tell us when making your order, and we will take care of everything.

Will a skip hire company from Oakham deliver my skip?

A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Oakham. We employ a network of both local and nationwide companies to allow us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are vetted to guarantee they meet the high standards we require in terms of service, price and environmental performance.

Am I able to get rid of electronic products in my skip?

No, you cannot put old or broken electrical waste products in a skip. This includes things like printers, microwaves, tumble dryers, refrigerators and computer monitors. These items can’t be thrown in a skip as they can include dangerous materials and components.

As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.

How much will skip hire in Oakham cost?

We will instantly display the skip sizes we offer in your location and how much each option will cost to hire.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The phrase builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yard skip. The term comes from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These large containers are perfect for a multitude of household and industrial tasks. They are the largest skips which you can use for heavy builders waste like soil, stone and concrete.

Can you deliver to other areas in Rutland?

Absolutely. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to supply skips to both residential and industrial customers across Rutland and elsewhere within the UK.

What size is the mini skip?

If you are looking for a low cost skip to get rid of some household waste, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to tackle numerous jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be located on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.

Although most commonly hired by household customers, the mini skip can also tackle small commercial jobs.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you run a business in Oakham and need to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a great choice. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips that are available.

As the name indicates, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike normal skips, that are picked up using chains.

What waste can I put in my skip?

This is among the most frequent questions people have about our service. What is important to consider is that you can fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of rubbish that will result from garden projects, building work and property clearances.

Some of the most frequent things that we find in our skips include soil, timber, tree cuttings, kitchen units, bathroom suites, as well as other household products.

There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to put in your skip. For example, any electrical items (tumble dryers, televisions or washing machines for example), tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. These are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and disposing of them has to adhere to a completely different procedure to ensure they do not result in harm to the environment.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

We can offer a wide range of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip perfect for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A common choice for larger jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

For Oakham companies which generate a large volume of bulky waste materials, 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 ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you have requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you confirm your booking prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver your skip, we try to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery area, as failed deliveries will lead to a charge for the wasted journey.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Oakham?

Usually, it is possible to have your skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to get this done, you have got to have consent from your local council in Oakham, which is called a skip permit. We can organise this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for your license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, this gives you sufficient time to fill up the skip. However, if you need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, in the event you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.

Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?

You must not fill your skip past the level load line. If you load it above the tip of this level, it means your skip is not safe and secure to transport, and you may be asked to remove the extra rubbish before it can be collected.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

Generally speaking, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop-down door, depending on 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 primarily useful when you are choosing a big builder’s skip, as it enables you to wheelbarrow your rubbish 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.
