Olney Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
If you have a small quantity of rubbish to dispose of, the mini skip might be the best option. What size is described as a mini skip differs from business to business, depending on what sizes they provide.
2 cubic yards is considered the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to have a 3 yard container for their smallest option. Cost is based on the particular size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for household work such as modest DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
How soon can you deliver a skip in Olney?
We can typically deliver skips to Olney the next working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking platform offers you a number of delivery dates to select from. So whether you would like a skip to arrive asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
Will my skip have a drop door?
The vast majority of containers can be delivered with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the skip, especially with heavy materials, such as garden soil and concrete, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.
How much will skip hire in Olney cost?
Our goal is to offer the cheapest skip hire service in Olney. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have your skip placed on the street or other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the added price of the skip permit.
Is it okay to fill my skip higher than level load mark?
No, you are only allowed to pack your skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste up over this line would make it dangerous to move, and you might be told to remove the surplus waste before your skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or any other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and can also make it overweight.
Where does my waste go once the skip is picked up?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets sorted into a variety of waste types, including stone, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
What size roll-on roll-off skips do you offer?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container used to transport significant amounts of waste. In most cases, these containers are hired for business applications. Having said that, domestic clients may also use them. You have to consider the space they will take up, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be used for light-weight materials like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and stone.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Olney?
We utilise a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our customers in Olney and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner businesses are verified and evaluated to ensure they meet our standards for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.
How can I order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know if the skip shall be going on private property (a drive, for example) or public property (like the road). Then, pick the date you want the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Olney on the date you have selected.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Olney, you have various options to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for small home clearances and DIY work.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most popular sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also makes them ideal for house clear ups involving large items such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even bigger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they cannot be hired to dispose of garden soil or concrete.
For more details about the different sizes available, such as measurements, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be at home at the time it is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip is situated precisely where you need it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates restrict access.
However, when this isn’t feasible, you do not have to be concerned. Just let us know when placing your booking, and we will handle the rest.
How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?
The builders skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These are the biggest skips that can be hired to dispose of weighty building and demolition materials such as rock, concrete, gravel or soil.
The builder’s skip is great for a wide array of jobs. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your bathroom or clearing the loft space, these large skips are often the most cost-effective option available.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
The standard hire term is two weeks from your date of delivery. Having said that, at the time you book the skip, you can provide a collection date that is perfect for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if the skip is finished with earlier than expected, let us know, and we will collect it at the earliest opportunity.
Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to keep in mind that this is not always the case during busy times. Once collected, your waste will be transported to your local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed and sorted.
Can I dispose of all types of rubbish in a skip?
A skip may be used to get rid of lots of different types of waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and handling lots of items from construction jobs, garden projects and household clearances. Examples of allowed waste materials include:
- Home furniture
- Hedge cuttings
- Garden soil
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Cabinets and units
Most waste types are usually accepted, therefore whether you want to discard metals, plastic materials, timber or clothing, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The volume and materials you throw into the skip may vary depending on which size skip you have chosen. All skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you would like get rid of top soil and hardcore, as an example, the largest size you would be able to use will be the 8 yard builders skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?
There are some items which you will not be allowed to discard in your skip. The reason behind this is that these products incorporate hazardous materials which can cause harm to the environment. They could also be dangerous to human health, therefore they have to be discarded separately under UK law.
Some of the products which are restricted include:
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas cylinders
- PC screens
- Battery packs
- Chemical substances
Can you deliver skips across Buckinghamshire?
We provide a UK wide skip hire and recycling service through a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you want skip hire in Olney, Gerrards Cross, Woburn Sands, Winslow or any other site in Buckinghamshire, we can assist.
If I want a skip on the road in Olney, will I need to have a permit?
This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only require a permit if it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip is on your private property, like a driveway or inside your company premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate the skip on private property, it will save you some pounds.
Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, as electronic items including old televisions, freezers, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects have to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly way.
Other areas covered include Gerrards Cross, Woburn Sands, Winslow, Newport Pagnell, Chalfont St Peter, Amersham, Bourne End and Aylesbury.
