Penkridge Skip Hire FAQs
If I require a skip on the road in Penkridge, will I need to get a permit?
Generally, it will be possible to have the skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to do this, you have got to have approval from your local authority in Penkridge, which is called a skip permit. We can arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for this permit, and it may sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility in or local to Penkridge where we will sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
How big is the mini skip?
If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to deal with numerous tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be positioned on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most often hired by household customers, the mini skip can even be used for small commercial jobs.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We can normally give you a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip on private property, as to go on public property (like a highway), you must get a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.
Due to many factors that may impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it arriving within a AM or PM slot.
Which skip sizes have a drop door?
Getting a skip which has a drop down door can make filling waste into it a lot easier. This is particularly true with hefty waste such as garden soil and stone, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away large bulky items like pieces of furniture easier too.
The majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, however this may sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our best to supply this.
Is it ok to load the skip higher than level load line?
Unfortunately not. You must only load your skip up to the level load line. Piling rubbish up above this line will make it dangerous to move, and you might be asked to get rid of the extra waste before your skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or any other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.
What is the cost of skip hire in Penkridge?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Penkridge, enter your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you which skip sizes we offer in your area and how much each option costs to hire. If your skip will be on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.
Do I have to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure that the lorry has total access and that the skip can be positioned precisely where you want it. The same applies if you have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly if gates limit access.
However, when this is not feasible, you don’t need to be concerned. Simply let us know when you are placing your booking, and then we will take care of everything.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These will be the largest skips used to discard weighty building and demolition materials such as stone, bricks, gravel or clay.
A builder’s skip is perfect for a number of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning the loft, these large containers will often be the most cost-effective option available.

Am I allowed to put all types of rubbish in the skip?
Prior to hiring a skip, it is important to check that the sort of waste materials you need to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types you are able to put in your skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use your skip to discard building and demolition waste, like timber, dirt, rubble, metals and gravel.
Some examples of restricted items include electronic items, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container that can be used to get rid of significant amounts of waste. In the majority of cases, these skips are used for commercial applications. However, residential customers can also hire them. You should look at the area they occupy, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be hired for lightweight waste like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of soil and hardcore.
How many different skip sizes are there?
Our company offers a complete range of skip sizes to residential and commercial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Listed below are the different sized skips on offer, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each skip is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
- 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

How long am I able to keep a skip for?
You can usually keep your skip for as long as 14 days from your delivery date. It is possible to provide a chosen collection date when you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can let us know after you have loaded the skip, and then we will plan your collection. Usually, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take a little longer during busy times.
Will a skip hire company from Penkridge deliver my skip?
We utilise a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in Penkridge and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner companies are verified and tested to make certain they match our standards for cost, service, recycling and reliability.
Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, because electronic products including old televisions, fridges, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items must be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly manner.
