Below are a few of the frequently asked questions we have received regarding our skip hire service.
Ramsey Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to throw electrical items in my skip?
Electronic items such as television sets, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste and so cannot be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electrical objects need to be segregated from other waste. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly manner.
What is the size of a builders skip?
The builders skip is probably the most common skip which is hired across the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builders skip is perfect for most building tasks, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 yd builders skip will be the largest option which you can use for heavy materials like garden soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.
What sort of waste can I dispose of in a skip?
Before you hire a skip, it is essential to ensure that the kind of waste materials you intend to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials have to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you can discard in your skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use a skip to dispose of building and demolition rubbish, such as old bricks, soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Examples of prohibited items include electrical items, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently must be disposed of separately from any general rubbish.
What are the different skip sizes available?
We can offer a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for small DIY tasks and house clearances. A common option for more substantial tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Ramsey firms with a big volume of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Ramsey?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is placed on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit when your skip is on your private property, such as a drive or inside your company premises.
If you need to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know as part of the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position the skip on your own land, it will save you some money.
What is the cost of skip hire in Ramsey?
The price of hiring a skip in Ramsey is determined by the size of skip you need. The lowest priced option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you want a larger sized skip, like an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also increase if you need to have a skip placed on the highway, because you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Where will the waste go when the skip is collected?
When you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste recycling centre either in or local to Ramsey where we segregate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container used to transport large quantities of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these type of containers are used for industrial purposes. However, residential clients may also order them. You will need to look at the area they will take up, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be utilised for lightweight materials such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of soil and stone.
How can I order a skip online?
Ordering a skip in Ramsey through us is very simple. Decide on the skip size you require and input a couple of details about where and when you would like the skip delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and then arrange to have your skip delivered to you.
Do you deliver to other areas in Cambridgeshire?
Sure, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skip sizes to areas throughout Cambridgeshire, including Ramsey, Whittlesey, Peterborough and Chatteris. So regardless of where you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
How quickly can you deliver a skip to Ramsey?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver, we try to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery area, as unsuccessful deliveries will lead to a fee for the wasted trip.
Do I have to be home when the skip is delivered?
No, you do not need to be at home when we are delivering the skip. Provided that we can gain access to the place you need it positioned, we will take care of it all.
If you are not likely to be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when placing the order. For instance, you may want the skip to be positioned at a particular area of the drive. Alternatively, you may want to make sure the skip does not prevent use of your garage.
Whatever the case might be, provide the details when you place your order, and we will make sure the instructions are passed on to the delivery driver.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
You can generally hire a skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the collection will be as convenient as possible, there is the choice of giving a preferred collection day when you place your order.
Alternatively, simply let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It can take a little bit longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, but we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.
Will a skip hire company from Ramsey deliver my skip?
To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work with a wide range of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
Which skip sizes will have a drop door?
Generally, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, depending on size, availability and area. If you need a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip which has a drop door is primarily useful if you are hiring a big builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow your waste directly into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, since they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?
It is very important to not overload your skip, as you run the risk of being told to remove surplus waste prior to it being picked up. Regardless of what size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, since moving an overloaded bin can be dangerous, as waste could drop and result in injury or damage to others.
To prevent this issue, please be sure you hire a size suitable for your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full and you have more waste to get rid of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
How large is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size delivered by skip firms and is good for smaller DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms offer you a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
