Oswestry Skip Hire FAQs

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge industrial scale skips used mainly in the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for companies that generate large amounts of waste.

What things can I put in my skip?

You are able to load the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly generated from home clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include timber, dirt, bricks, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you throw in the skip would depend on which skip size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, if you will be using the skip for heavy construction wastes such as bricks or top soil, the largest size you would be able to get is an 8 cubic yard.

Some materials should not be discarded in your skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?

If 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 various waste streams, which includes wood, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

Do I need to be there when the skip is due to be delivered?

It is always best if you can be in when anyone delivers something to your home. That allows you to make sure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be positioned just where you want it.

The same thing applies if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.

However, if it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

Will a Oswestry skip hire company deliver my skip?

We use a network of both local and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in Oswestry and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner firms are approved and evaluated to make certain they meet our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

Is it ok to pile up waste in my skip?

You must not fill a skip beyond the level load line. When you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means that your skip is not secure to transport, and you could be asked to remove any excess waste before it can be picked up.

Can I have a skip that has a drop door?

When you are selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is great for disposing of heavy building and construction waste, as it can be pushed in the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop-down door, although these are generally less common. The reason being these sizes are typically small enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our best to ensure a skip with a drop door is supplied.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size provided by skip companies and is good for smaller DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some companies offer a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips come in a selection of different sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is great for small residential projects.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a good choice for shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more significant waste disposal job to tackle, a builder’s skip might be the best choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name indicates, these represent the most typical sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, such as soil and rubble. But they can equally well be hired for domestic waste such as old furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also provide 10-16 cubic yard skips and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in the skip?

Electronic items such as tv sets, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste and so cannot be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic items should be separated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly way.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you have requested. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you complete your booking prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.

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

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery spot, as failed deliveries can result in a charge for the wasted trip.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

The standard hire time frame is two weeks from your delivery date. Having said that, at the time you order the skip, you can let us know a pick up date that is best for you. Of course, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is full sooner than anticipated, let us know, and we will collect it at the earliest opportunity.

Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to understand that this may not be possible at busy periods. Once collected, your skip will be transported to your local waste transfer facility, where it will be processed and sorted.

How much does skip hire in Oswestry cost?

The price of getting a skip in Oswestry will depend on the size of skip you need. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you need a larger sized skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also increase if you need to have a skip positioned on the highway, because you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Do you deliver to other areas in Shropshire?

As well as delivering skips and containers to Oswestry, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Shropshire. Through our network of local and national skip companies, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering in Oswestry, Newport or Ellesmere, we have got you covered.

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

The term builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yard skip. The label stems from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are hired by builders and tradespeople.

These substantial skips are fantastic for an array of domestic and business jobs. These are the largest skips which you can use for hefty builders waste such as dirt, rubble and bricks.

Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Oswestry?

In most cases, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you would like your skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or house, you will have to obtain authorisation from the local council in Oswestry, which is known as a permit. If required, we would be glad to organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the license, and you should know before booking that obtaining the licence can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
