Paignton Skip Hire FAQs

What is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some household rubbish, the mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to deal with many 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.

Although most frequently hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.

What happens to the waste?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get sorted into various waste types, which includes timber, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!

Do you use local skip hire companies in Paignton?

We use a network of both local and national skip hire companies to supply skips to our clients in Paignton and the rest of the country. All of our partner skip hire companies are verified and evaluated to make sure they satisfy our expectations for cost, service, recycling and reliability.

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

As the name suggests, a builders skip is the size of skip most frequently supplied for construction projects. There are usually two sizes which can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which can be used to get rid of substantial amounts of building and demolition waste materials, such as earth, rubble and stone.

Although they are labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for various other domestic and business waste disposal jobs.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

You can normally have your skip for as long as 2 weeks from the date of delivery. You are able to provide a chosen collection day when you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can tell us after you have finished with the skip, and we will arrange your collection. Generally, this will be the following working day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer over busy times.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?

I’m afraid not, because electrical items like old TVs, fridge freezers, printers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly fashion.

How many different skip sizes are available?

Skips are offered in a number of different sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is good for small residential projects.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent choice for garden clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant waste disposal job to sort out, the builder’s skip might be the smartest choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label implies, these represent the most typical sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, such as soil and stone. However they can equally well be used for household rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also deliver 10-16 cubic yard bins and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What size skips have a door?

Typically, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop door, depending on size, availability and location. If you require a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Having a skip with a drop door is mainly beneficial if you are hiring a big builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, since they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We can typically deliver skips to Paignton the following working day when an order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking program will provide you with a variety of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like your skip delivered ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.

Can I fill up my skip above the top?

It is vital never to overload your skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is indicated along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it can be very unsafe to transport. Which means that when you overload the skip, you could be asked to take off the excess rubbish. However secure you believe the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be unsafe and is not allowed.

What sort of waste am I able to dispose of in a skip?

This is amongst the most popular questions people have about our skip hire service. What is important to consider is that you may fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are lots of types of waste that will result from garden work, building work and house clearances.

Some of the most typical things that we pick up in our skips include soil, wood, hedge trimmings, kitchen units, bathroom suites, and various other household items.

There are some things that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. For example, any electrical goods (fridge freezers, TVs or printers for example), old tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. These are all deemed hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them must adhere to an entirely different process to make sure they do not result in damage to the environment.

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

It is always a good idea to be available when anybody delivers something to your house. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be located just where you want it.

The same thing applies for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.

Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.

In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need your skip to be located on land outside of your business or house, you need to obtain authorisation from the local authority in Paignton, which is known as a permit. If required, we would gladly arrange this for you, so it’s one less issue to think about. The council will charge a fee for the skip license, plus you should know before placing your order that getting the licence will often take up to 2 working days.

How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
