Poole Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to dispose of all kinds of waste in the skip?
You are allowed to fill up your skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly produced from house clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, top soil, stone, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip depends on which skip size you have ordered, as there is a weight limit. For example, if you are using the skip for heavy building waste like bricks or garden soil, the biggest size you can use is the 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials cannot be disposed of in the skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.
Am I able to throw electrical products in the skip?
I’m afraid not, since electrical products including old TVs, refrigerators, laptops and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly way.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?
If you have a business in Poole and want to get rid of large quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a perfect option. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips on the market.
As the name implies, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, that are picked up by using chains.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Poole?
Our goal is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Poole. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip you hire. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have the skip placed on the street or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the added price of the skip permit.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
We offer a full-range of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip excellent for small DIY projects and house clearances. A popular choice for larger sized jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Poole businesses with a large volume of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Can I load my skip above the level load mark?
You must not load the skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it up over the tip of this level, it means your skip is not safe and secure to move, and you may be asked to take off the excess rubbish prior to it being picked up.
Who will deliver my skip?
Since we offer a nationwide skip service, we use a comprehensive network of verified and approved companies. These can range from small family-run skip hire firms to nationwide waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to guarantee they match our high customer service and environmental standards.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Poole?
Normally, it will be possible to have the skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But in order to do this, you will need to get permission from your local authority in Poole, which is known as a skip permit. We can order this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for the permit, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can usually supply skips to Poole the next working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking system gives you a variety of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you need a skip delivered asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
You can typically hire the skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection is as convenient as possible, there is the option of offering a preferred collection date when placing your order.
Otherwise, simply let us know when you have finished with your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It can take a little bit longer to collect your skip during busy periods, but we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.
Do you deliver skips across Dorset?
In addition to delivering skips to Poole, we can also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Dorset. With the help of our network of regional and national waste management companies, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business in Poole, Stalbridge or Chickerell, we have got you covered.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
For those who have a small quantity of rubbish to throw out, a mini skip may be the perfect choice. What size is known as a mini skip is different from business to business, according to what sizes they offer.
The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to have a 3 yard container as their smallest option. The cost is based on the actual size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for domestic tasks such as small DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
What will happen to the rubbish?
The contents of the skip will be taken to the local waste recycling facility. Here the waste will be sorted by machines and by hand into numerous waste streams, including metal, paper, hardcore and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most often hired for building jobs. There are usually two skip sizes that may be labelled 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 significant amounts of construction and demolition waste materials, like garden soil, concrete and rock.
Although they are branded a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for a number of other domestic and commercial waste disposal tasks.
What skip sizes will have a drop door?
The vast majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the bin, especially with heavy materials, such as dirt and rubble, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, such as household furniture.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure that the lorry has full access and that the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it. The same applies for those who have a skip delivered to business property, especially if gates limit access.
However, when this is not possible, you do not have to be concerned. Just tell us when placing your order, and then we will handle the rest.
