Padstow Skip Hire FAQs

How many different skip sizes are available?

We offer a wide selection of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip great for modest DIY projects and domestic clearances. A popular choice for larger sized jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

For Padstow companies with a large amount of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We can normally offer you a next day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, since to go on public property (like a street), you will have to obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.

Due to many factors that could impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it arriving in a AM or PM slot.

What happens to the rubbish?

The materials in the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer facility. Here the contents will be segregated by machinery and also by hand into various waste streams, such as metal, cardboard, rubble and timber. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is always to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?

No, you don’t have to be home when we are delivering your skip. Providing we are able to access the place you want it positioned, we can take care of it all.

If you are not going to be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery instructions when placing the order. For example, you might need the skip to be positioned at a particular side of your driveway. Alternatively, you may want to ensure that the skip doesn’t obstruct entry to your garage.

No matter what the situation might be, provide the details when you place your order, and then we will make sure the directions are passed to the delivery driver.

Do you deliver skips across Cornwall?

What types of waste can I put in my skip?

It is possible to throw a variety of waste into the skip. This can include wood, bathroom tiles, metal or rubble from a property clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, soil and rock from garden jobs are allowed too. Cupboards from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in the skip.

However, there are some materials that you can’t put in a skip due to the potential environmental or health risk they could cause.

You are unable to get rid of your fridge freezer, laptop or 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 must be discarded separately from normal rubbish.

Should you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to organise an independent service for this material. Please email for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.

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

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container that can be used to dispose of large quantities of waste. Mostly, these type of containers are hired for industrial applications. However, residential clients may also hire them. It is very important take into account the space they occupy, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be hired for light waste such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of soil and hardcore.

Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Padstow?

In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you need your skip to be situated on land outside of your company or home, you need to get permission from the local council in Padstow, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we would be happy to organise this for you, so it’s one less thing to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the license, and you should know before placing your order that getting the licence can often take up to two working days.

What size is a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most frequently supplied for construction projects. There are generally two skip sizes that can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of large amounts of building and demolition materials, like dirt, rubble and rock.

Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can be used for various other residential and industrial waste disposal jobs.

How large is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are great for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and old toys to paving slabs and garden soil. With a volume of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you having to make several journeys to the local recycling centre.

What skip sizes will have a door?

Generally, almost all skips can be provided with a drop-down door, depending on size, availability and area. If you require a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful if hiring a large builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow your waste directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, as they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What is the cost of skip hire in Padstow?

The price of getting a skip in Padstow depends on the size of skip you want. The lowest priced option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you need a larger skip, like an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The cost will also increase if you need to have the skip placed on the road, since you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Can I throw electrical products in the skip?

Unfortunately this is not allowed, as electrical products such as old TVs, refrigerators, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items need to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly way.

How long can I keep the skip for?

Typically, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t need to hurry through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.

Is it ok to fill my skip higher than the top?

You should not load a skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it above the tip of this mark, it means your skip will not be secure to transport, and you could be asked to take off the extra waste before it can be picked up.

Other areas covered include Torpoint, Bude, St Just, Wadebridge, Penzance, Penryn, Redruth and Saltash.
