Oldbury Skip Hire FAQs
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a huge skip that can be used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These containers are mainly for industrial use but can be hired by household clients as well. However, you will want a lot of space because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger compared to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.
Due to the size, roll-on roll-off containers should only be hired for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of concrete and bricks.
Am I allowed to fill up my skip above the level load line?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it hazardous to transport, and you may have to remove any materials over the level load line. This also means you cannot make use of sheets of wood, doors or some other item, since this will increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty to make sure that skips are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure to select the correct size of skip to meet your requirements and get in contact if you are not sure which size is best. We will be glad to help.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
It is always a good idea to be in when anyone delivers anything to your property. That enables you to ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be dropped just where you want it.
The same thing goes for those who have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can usually hire a skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you have the choice of offering a preferred collection date when you place your order.
Otherwise, just tell us when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the following working day.
It can take a bit longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, but we will always endeavour to come as quickly as possible.
How large is a mini skip?
When you have a small amount of waste to get rid of, the mini skip might be the perfect option. What size is referred to as a mini skip differs from business to business, determined by what sizes they supply.
2 cubic yards is the most common size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to have a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. The cost is dependent on the particular size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are great for household work like small DIY projects and garden clean ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
What is the cost of skip hire in Oldbury?
Our aim is to provide the cheapest skip hire service in Oldbury. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip that you hire. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip placed on the street or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the additional cost of the skip permit.
What can I put in the skip?
It is possible to load the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from home clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, top soil, concrete, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you throw in the skip depends on the skip size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight limit. For example, in the event that you are using the skip for heavy building wastes including rubble or garden soil, the largest size you could hire is an 8 cubic yard.
Some materials can not be discarded in your skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
Can you deliver skips across West Midlands?
We offer a national skip hire and recycling service through a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Oldbury, Birmingham, Coventry, Darlaston or another area in West Midlands, we can assist.
How quickly can you deliver a skip to Oldbury?
If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we will even offer a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed during the order process.
Is it possible to get a skip that has a drop door?
Getting a skip with a drop down door makes loading rubbish into the skip a lot easier. This is especially the case with heavy waste materials like garden soil and hardcore, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make throwing away large bulky objects like household furniture easier as well.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, although this will sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when making your booking if a door is required, and we will do our very best to deliver this.
If I want a skip on the road in Oldbury, will I need to get a permit?
If at all possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface. For anybody who is carrying out a household job, then your driveway is going to be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. However, if neither is available, the road or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public property, you will need to have a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be dropped on a street, grass verge or any other public property in Oldbury. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be granted on your behalf. An additional fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?
The contents of the skip will be taken to the local waste recycling facility. Here the waste will be separated by machines and also by hand into various waste streams, like metal, paper, stone and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.
Who will deliver my skip?
As we offer a national skip service, we utilise a diverse network of approved companies. These range from small local skip hire businesses to national waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental expectations.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
Skips are offered in a selection of sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is good for small household jobs.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great choice for garden clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
When you have a more substantial waste disposal job to sort out, a builder’s skip could be the best option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label suggests, they are the most popular sizes hired by builders for building waste, including clay and rubble. But they can just as well be hired for household waste such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.
We can also deliver 10-16 cubic yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in the skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This can include all electrical products like cookers, monitors, toasters, computers and even hair straighteners.
What is a builder’s skip?
The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These are the biggest skips used to get rid of substantial building waste such as rock, bricks, rubble or soil.
The builders skip is ideal for a wide array of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or cleaning out the shed, these large containers tend to be the most affordable solution available.
