Can a skip be dropped on a road in Oundle?
Generally, it will be possible to get the skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But in order to do this, you need to get approval from the local authority in Oundle, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to arrange this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for the permit, and it can sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
How much waste can a builders skip hold?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the popular skip that is hired in the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builder’s skip is perfect for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 yard builders skip is the largest option that can be used for heavy waste materials including soil, concrete, rock and rubble.
How long will it take to get a skip in Oundle?
When you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the next day. In some cases, we will even offer a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed when going through the online order process.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are big commercial size skips that are used mainly in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for companies that generate significant volumes of waste.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
The standard hire time frame will be two weeks from your date of delivery. However, at the time you book your skip, you can provide a pick up date that will work for you. Of course, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is loaded sooner than anticipated, let us know, and we will get it removed as quickly as possible.
Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. However, it is important to understand that this is not always the case during busy periods. Once collected, the skip will be transported to your local waste transfer facility, where it will be processed and sorted.
What is the cost of skip hire in Oundle?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Oundle, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you the sizes we offer in your area and how much each one will cost you to order. If your skip is going on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.
What size is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to tackle numerous tasks.
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 chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
Electrical products like televisions, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore cannot be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical goods have to be separated from other rubbish. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the different waste streams, such as wood, metals, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How do I hire a skip in Oundle?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you wish to hire. Let us know whether the skip will be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or council property (like the road). Next, select the day you would like the skip to be delivered. Check your order details and then make payment using our secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Oundle on the date you have selected.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
In general, most skips can be provided with a hinged door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful if you are choosing a large builder’s skip, since it allows you to wheelbarrow your waste directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, because they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Will a Oundle skip hire company deliver my skip?
As we offer a national skip hire service, we utilise a comprehensive network of verified and approved businesses. These vary from small family-run skip hire firms to nationwide waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental expectations.
Do I need to be at home when the skip will be delivered?
It is always best if you can be available when anybody delivers anything to your house. That allows you to make sure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be dropped precisely where you need it.
The same thing applies for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Am I allowed to put all types of rubbish in the skip?
You are allowed to put a variety of rubbish in the skip. This includes timber, floor tiles, plastics or concrete from a house clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, soil and stone from garden work is allowed too. Dated cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be thrown in a skip.
However, there are things that you are not allowed to put in a skip due to the possible environment or health risk they could cause.
You cannot get rid of your fridge, computer monitor or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. All of these items consist of hazardous materials in one type or another. They need to be discarded separately from general waste.
If you want hazardous waste removal, we may be able to schedule an independent service for this waste. Please contact us for further details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
Do you deliver to other areas in Northamptonshire?
Absolutely. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we can deliver skips to both household and commercial customers across Northamptonshire and anywhere else within the UK.
Am I allowed to load up the skip above the side?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it hazardous to transport, and you will be asked to empty any rubbish higher than the level load mark. This also means you are unable to use sheets of timber, doors or another item, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal responsibility to make sure that containers are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure to order the appropriate size of skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you’re unsure which size you require. We will be pleased to help.
