Potton Skip Hire FAQs

Which size skips have a drop down door?

Getting a skip which has a drop door helps make filling rubbish into it a lot easier. This is particularly true with heavy materials such as soil or stone, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of large bulky objects like furniture easier also.

The majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, however this may sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when making your booking if a door is needed, and we will do our best to provide this.

Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?

Electronic objects like televisions, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste and so cannot be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric items have to be segregated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly manner.

Can I stack up waste in my skip?

You must not fill the skip past the level load line. If you fill it over the tip of this mark, it means your skip will not be secure to transport, and you may be asked to remove the extra waste prior to it being picked up.

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

Our goal is to provide the cheapest skip hire service in Potton. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip that you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have your skip placed on the highway or other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the additional expense of the skip permit.

Will a Potton skip hire company deliver my skip?

Since we provide a nationwide skip service, we use an extensive network of verified and approved companies. These include small local skip hire firms to nationwide waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental principles.

What size skips can you offer?

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

In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you want the skip to be placed on land outside of your business or house, you need to secure permission from your local authority in Potton, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we would be glad to arrange this for you, therefore it’s one less thing to think about. The council will charge a fee for the skip permit, and you should know before booking that obtaining the licence will often take up to two working days.

What waste materials am I allowed to put in a skip?

Your skip may be used to get rid of a variety of types of waste. We are used to picking up and handling a wide variety of materials produced from construction jobs, garden projects and household tidy-ups. A few examples of permitted waste types include things like:

  • Household furniture
  • Garden cuttings
  • Top soil
  • Hardcore
  • Bathroom suites
  • Cabinets and units

The majority of materials are usually accepted, so whether you wish to dispose of furniture, plastics, wood or fabric, we can normally take your waste away.

The volume and materials you throw into the skip will vary according to which size skip you have hired. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So to be able to discard soil and bricks, as an example, the largest size container you will be allowed to hire will be the 8 yard skip.

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

There are a few waste items that you are not allowed to dump in your skip. The reason behind this is that some goods contain hazardous materials which may cause harm to the environment. They can also be harmful to human health, so they need to be disposed of separately within UK law.

Examples of the goods that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC screens
  • Battery packs
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How soon can you deliver a skip to Potton?

We will make sure your skip is provided on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the very next day.

Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You should make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will usually incur a charge for the wasted trip.

Do I have to be home whenever the skip will be delivered?

It is usually a good idea to be there when anyone delivers something to your property. That allows you to ensure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be dropped precisely where you want it.

The same goes if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.

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

What is a builders skip?

The name builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the largest skips that can be used to discard weighty building and construction materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or soil.

A builder’s skip is great for a wide range of jobs. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing out your attic, these big skips are often the most cost-effective option available.

What happens to the rubbish?

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets segregated into various waste streams, which includes stone, soil and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

You can generally keep your skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, you will have the option of giving a preferred collection date when you place your order.

Otherwise, just tell us when you have finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the following working day.

It might take a bit longer to pick up your skip during busy times, but we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.

As the name indicates, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike standard skips, which are picked up using chains.
