Radstock Skip Hire FAQs
What is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a cheap skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to tackle many jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most often hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even handle small commercial jobs.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Radstock?
The cost of getting a skip in Radstock will depend on the size of skip you need. The cheapest skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and clearances. If you want a bigger skip, like an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also be more if you want to have a skip placed on the highway, since you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
How quick can you deliver a skip in Radstock?
When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we will even give you a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed during the online order process.
Will a Radstock skip hire company deliver my skip?
Since we offer a UK-wide waste management service, we utilise a comprehensive network of approved businesses. These can range from 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 requirements.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Radstock?
This depends on where the skip will be located. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if your skip is on your private property, like a drive or within your business premises.
Should you need to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, and then we can make the required arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate the skip on private property, it will save you some money.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?
The roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a huge skip that is used to get rid of large amounts of rubbish. These bins are predominantly for business use but can be used by residential clients also. However, you will want plenty of space because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger in comparison to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.
As a result of the size, these containers can only be provided for light materials such as plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and rubble.
What kinds of waste am I able to put in a skip?
You may use your skip to throw out lots of different waste materials. We are used to collecting and handling lots of materials from building jobs, garden projects and property clean-ups. A few examples of allowed waste materials include:
- Pieces of furniture
- Garden trimmings
- Top soil
- Bricks and rubble
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Kitchen cabinets and units
The majority of materials are allowed, and therefore whether you would like to throw out furniture, plastic materials, wood or textiles, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The volume and materials you discard in the skip can vary depending on the size skip you hired. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you need to get rid of top soil and bricks, for example, the largest size you would be permitted to hire would be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Are there any items that I can’t discard in the skip?
There are a few waste materials you are not allowed to put in the skip. The reason behind this is that these items contain hazardous materials which can damage the environment. They can even be harmful to human health, and so they need to be disposed of separately under UK legislation.
A few of the products that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas cylinders
- Computer screens
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
Do I have to be home whenever the skip will be delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be available when anybody delivers anything to your home. That allows you to ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be dropped just where you need it.
The same goes if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
How do I hire a skip online?
We have designed our booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. The first task is to enter your delivery postcode to check out all the different skip sizes we can provide in Radstock. Pick the best size to meet your needs and provide the details of when and where you need your skip to be delivered. Then you can make payment through the secure payment platform, and we’ll send an email to confirm the order as soon as your order is complete!
Am I able to get rid of electrical items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products need to be kept separate from general waste to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric items including cookers, televisions, toasters, computers and even hair straighteners.
Do you deliver to other areas in Somerset?
We provide a nationwide skip hire service through a network of verified and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Radstock, Dulverton, Weston-Super-Mare, North Petherton or any other location in Somerset, we are able to assist.
What are the different skip sizes available?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Radstock, you will have several options to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for modest household clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their substantial capacity also means they are well suited for household tidy ups including large items such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for those with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only appropriate for light materials, so they can not be used to dispose of garden soil or rubble.
For further information regarding the various skip sizes available, such as dimensions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
The normal hire time frame is 14 days from the date of delivery. However, when you order your skip, you can choose a collection date that will work for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is loaded sooner than anticipated, contact us, and we will get it collected as soon as possible.
Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to keep in mind that this may not always be possible at busier times. Once collected, the waste will be taken to a local waste transfer facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
What will happen to my waste once the skip is picked up?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into various waste materials, like wood, metals, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What is a builders skip?
The builders skip is probably the most frequent skip which is hired in the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builder’s skip is ideal for most building and construction jobs, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the biggest size which can be used for hefty waste matter including soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.
Is it ok to stack up the waste in my skip?
No. You can only fill up the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste materials up above this line will make it unsafe to transport, and you could be told to take away the extra waste before the skip can be collected. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.
Which size skips can have a drop door?
If you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is made for disposing of hefty building and demolition materials, as it can be pushed in the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop door, though these are more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip with a drop door is provided.
