Okehampton Skip Hire FAQs
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
Normally, you can have your skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you don’t need to rush through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.
How can I order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you wish to hire. Tell us whether the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or public property (like the street). Next, choose the day you need the skip to get delivered. Check your order and make payment with our secure online payment system. That’s it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Okehampton on the date you have selected.
Will a skip hire company from Okehampton deliver my skip?
A local skip hire company will likely deliver your skip in Okehampton. We work with a network of both regional and national companies to allow us to offer our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are comprehensively assessed to make certain they meet the high standards we demand regarding service, price and environmental performance.
What can I put in my skip?
It is possible to put a wide array of waste in the skip. This includes timber, ceramic tiles, metal or rubble from a house clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, soil and rock from garden work is permitted also. Cupboards from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be discarded in your skip.
However, there are a few items that you can’t put in a skip due to the potential ecological or health risks they may trigger.
You can not throw in your refrigerator, laptop or your old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things consist of hazardous components in one type or another. They need to be disposed of separately from your general waste.
If you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to arrange a separate collection for this waste. Feel free to get in touch for further details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Okehampton?
If possible, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. For anyone who is carrying out a residential task, then your driveway will be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. On the other hand, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public land, you need to get a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be positioned on a street, grass verge or other public property in Okehampton. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be granted for you. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.
What size roll-on roll-off skips do you offer?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to get rid of large volumes of waste materials. In most cases, these type of containers are used for industrial applications. However, residential customers may also order them. It is very important consider the area they will occupy, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be utilised for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and hardcore.
Which skip sizes have a door?
Nearly all skip sizes can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the container, especially with heavy materials, such as garden soil and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, such as household furniture.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We can usually provide a following day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip on private property, as to go on public property (for example a highway), you will need to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
Due to many factors that may impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it turning up within a AM or PM slot.
Can I stack up waste in my skip?
I’m afraid not. You must only fill the skip up to the level load mark. Loading waste up over this line makes it unsafe to move, and you could be asked to remove the extra waste before your skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to raise the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.
Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be in when anybody delivers anything to your property. You can then ensure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be dropped exactly where you need it.
The same thing goes for those who have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Can you deliver to other areas in Devon?
We provide a national skip hire and waste management service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you would like skip hire in Okehampton, Honiton, Tavistock, Lynton or any other area in Devon, we are able to assist.
Am I allowed to put electrical items in my skip?
Unfortunately not, as electrical products like old televisions, cookers, laptops and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly fashion.
What is a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builders skip means the size of skip most frequently hired for construction jobs. There are generally two skip sizes that can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to get rid of significant quantities of construction and demolition waste materials, such as soil, concrete and rock.
Although they are labelled a builders skip, they can of course be used for a number of other domestic and industrial waste disposal jobs.
What size skips do you offer?
We can provide a wide range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip suitable for modest DIY projects and domestic clearances. A common choice for more substantial projects, renovations and building work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Okehampton firms which generate a big volume of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What is the cost of skip hire in Okehampton?
Our aim is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Okehampton. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you want to have the skip placed on the street or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the additional cost of a skip permit.
What happens to the rubbish?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste gets separated into several different waste streams, including stone, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
How large is the mini skip?
When you have a small amount of waste to dispose of, the mini skip may be the perfect option. What size is known as a mini skip varies from company to company, based on what sizes they provide.
2 cubic yards is considered the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to have a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. Price is based on the specific size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for household tasks like small DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
