Penryn Skip Hire FAQs

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, that will give you sufficient time to load your skip. However, if you need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, should you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just let us know when you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.

What are the different skip sizes available?

We are able to offer a full range of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip ideal for modest DIY projects and domestic clearances. A popular choice for bigger tasks, renovations and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Penryn businesses which generate a large quantity of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Will a skip hire company from Penryn deliver my skip?

We utilise a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire firms to supply skips to our customers in Penryn and the rest of the country. Each of our partner skip hire providers are verified and tested to make certain they satisfy our standards for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

Can I fill up the skip above the top?

Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it dangerous to transport, and you will then be asked to empty any items higher than the level load mark. This also means that you can not use sheets of wood, doors or some other object, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal responsibility to make sure that bins are not overfilled or overweight before transporting them.

Please be sure to select the appropriate size of skip for your needs and get in touch if you are not sure which size is best. We will be pleased to help.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Penryn?

To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Penryn, enter your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you which sizes we offer in your location and how much each one will cost to order. If the skip is going to be on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.

Am I able to have a skip with a drop door?

Nearly all skip sizes can be supplied with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the container, particularly with heavy materials, such as soil and bricks, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.

What is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some household rubbish, the mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to take on many jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be located on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

Although most frequently chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.

Am I allowed to get rid of electrical items in my skip?

Electric powered products such as television sets, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore can not be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric goods need to be separated from other materials. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly manner.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Penryn?

Usually, it will be possible to have a skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But in order to do this, you must get consent from the local council in Penryn, which is called a skip permit. We will organise this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for your permit, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to approve this.

Do you deliver skips across Cornwall?

Yes. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we can provide skips to domestic and industrial customers across Cornwall and elsewhere within the UK.

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

You don’t need to be at your property when the skip will be delivered, however it can help. Being home whenever the skip is delivered means you can make sure the delivery driver can be given complete access and that your skip can be located exactly where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is being delivered to business premises, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.

However, in the event you can’t be around during the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask that you tell us when you place your order, and then we will organise everything from there.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We will normally give you a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, since to be on public property (such as a road), you must obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to several factors that can impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it turning up in a morning or afternoon slot.

What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container used to dispose of significant volumes of waste materials. Predominantly, these skips are hired for business uses. Having said that, domestic customers may also use them. You will need to consider the space they take up, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be hired for light-weight waste including plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and stone.

Where will my waste be taken to once the skip is collected?

The contents of your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer centre. Here the waste will be sorted by machines and also by hand into numerous waste materials, including metal, paper, hardcore and timber. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste ending up in landfill.

What kinds of waste can you put in a skip?

You may use a skip to discard lots of different waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and handling numerous materials produced from building work, garden landscaping and home tidy-ups. Some examples of allowed waste products can include:

  • Home furniture
  • Tree trimmings
  • Top soil
  • Stone and concrete
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Cabinets and units

Many waste types are usually accepted, therefore whether you wish to dispose of furniture, plastic materials, wood or clothing, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The quantity and materials you discard in your skip can vary according to the size skip you chosen. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So to be able to discard top soil and hardcore, for example, the biggest size container you will be allowed to hire is the 8 yard skip.

What sort of materials am I not allowed to put in the skip?

There are several waste materials you are not allowed to discard in your skip. The reason behind this is that these products incorporate hazardous materials that may cause harm to the environment. They may also be hazardous to human health, and so they need to be discarded separately under UK regulations.

Examples of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer screens
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

What size is a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most commonly used for building and construction jobs. There are usually two different skip sizes that can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which you can use to get rid of large volumes of building and demolition waste, like soil, concrete and rock.

Although they are branded a builder’s skip, they can be used for many other domestic and industrial waste disposal jobs.
