Painswick Skip Hire FAQs

What sizes do skips come in?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Painswick, you will have numerous sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest household clearances and DIY jobs.

Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most popular sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also means they are perfect for household clearances involving bulky items such as furniture and beds.

We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These sizes are only suited to light waste, so they can not be hired to dispose of garden soil or stone.

To get more details about the various capacities offered, including proportions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.

What sort of rubbish can you throw in a skip?

Before ordering a skip, it is essential to ensure that the sort of rubbish you intend to get rid of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials need to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

Examples of waste types it is possible to throw in a skip include home goods like furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use your skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, such as bricks, dirt, rubble, metals and gravel.

Examples of prohibited items include electronic items, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently need to be discarded separately from any general waste.

Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?

No, you don’t have to be at home when we are delivering the skip. Providing we are able to gain access to the place you need it located, we can take care of it all.

When you are not going to be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be located at a particular area of your property. Alternatively, you may need to be sure that the skip doesn’t hinder use of your garage.

Whatever the case might be, let us know when ordering, and we will ensure your directions are passed on to the lorry driver.

Do you deliver to other areas in Gloucestershire?

Certainly. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to deliver skips to domestic and industrial customers across Gloucestershire and elsewhere within the UK.

What is the cost of skip hire in Painswick?

Our aim is to provide the cheapest skip hire service in Painswick. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip that you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have the skip situated on the highway or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the extra price of the skip permit.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a large container that is used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These containers are primarily for business use but can be hired by household customers as well. Having said that, you should have a good amount of room since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger compared to the typical skip you will see on the roadside.

As a result of the size, RORO skips can only be provided for light materials like plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suited to disposing of soil and bricks.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Painswick?

Preferably, you should have the skip left on a hard surface area. When you are carrying out a domestic task, then your driveway is going to be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. However, when neither is available, the road or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public land, you will need to obtain a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be dropped on a road, grass verge or other public property in Painswick. If this is required, we will request the license to be issued for you. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, this gives you sufficient time to load your skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, should you finish with the skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just tell us when you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.

What size is a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builders skip means the size of skip most frequently supplied for construction and demolition jobs. There are typically two different sizes which can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of significant volumes of construction and demolition materials, including earth, concrete and stone.

Although they are labelled a builders skip, these can be used for many other residential and business waste disposal tasks.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we will even provide a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed when going through the online order process.

How do you order a skip?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us if the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (like the road). After that, select the day you need the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. Job done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Painswick on the date you have chosen.

Which size skips can have a drop door?

The vast majority of containers can be delivered with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.

A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the container, particularly with heavy materials, like dirt and rubble, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, like furniture.

Am I able to throw away electrical items in the skip?

No, you cannot throw old electrical waste products in a skip. This can include things such as computers, cookers, tumble dryers, freezers and computer monitors. Electronic items can’t be disposed of in a skip because they can include hazardous materials and components.

Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.

Is it ok to fill up my skip above the top?

Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it dangerous to transport, and you will probably be asked to remove any materials above the level load mark. This also means you are not allowed to use sheets of timber, doors or any other item, as this will increase the size of the skip. We have a legal responsibility to make sure that skips aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure to order the correct sized skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you are unsure which size you need. We would be happy to help.

How large is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are great for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furniture and broken baby toys to paving blocks and soil. Having a volume of around 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you having to make several visits to your local recycling centre.

Who will deliver my skip?

To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work with a wide range of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we can supply customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.

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

After you have finished filling up your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility either in or local to Painswick where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

Other areas covered include Lydney, Stonehouse, Yate, Coleford, Wotton-under-Edge, Chipping Campden, Northleach and Cirencester.
