Redruth Skip Hire FAQs
Can I fill the skip above the level load mark?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it unsafe to move, and you will then have to remove any materials above the level load line. This means that you can not use sheets of timber, doors or another item, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty of care to ensure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure you choose the correct sized skip to meet your requirements and get in touch if you are not sure which size you require. We would be glad to help.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you have asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver your skip, we try to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery site, as failed delivery attempts will lead to a charge for the wasted journey.
What happens to my rubbish when the skip is collected?
After you have finished with your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Redruth where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
Am I able to throw away electrical items in my skip?
I’m afraid not, as electronic products such as old televisions, refrigerators, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items need to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly manner.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in my skip?
You are allowed to fill your skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from loft clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, garden soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you put in your skip would depend on which size you have hired, because there is a weight limit. For example, when you will be using a skip for heavy construction waste including rubble or top soil, the largest size you could hire is an 8 cubic yard.
Some materials cannot be discarded in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.
How do I order a skip?
Ordering a skip in Redruth with us is incredibly straightforward. Pick the skip size you want and then input a few details about where and when you need the skip to be delivered. You then pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then prepare to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
Do I have to be home whenever the skip will be delivered?
It usually is best if you can be available when anyone delivers anything to your home. That enables you to ensure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it.
The same thing goes if you have a business. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Redruth?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you want the skip to be situated on land outside of your company or residence, you must get authorisation from the local authority in Redruth, which is known as a skip permit. If necessary, we will be happy to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for your permit, plus you should be aware before placing your order that securing the licence can often take up to 2 working days.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Redruth?
This will depend on the skip size you require and if you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the least expensive option. The most expensive and biggest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings.

What sizes do skips come in?
We are able to supply a full range of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip ideal for modest DIY projects and house clearances. A common option for larger sized tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Redruth firms which generate a significant volume of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are ideal for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furniture and old baby toys to paving slabs and rubble. With a volume of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip will save you needing to make multiple trips to the local recycling centre.
Can you deliver to other areas in Cornwall?
In addition to delivering skips and containers to Redruth, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Cornwall. Through our network of regional and national skip hire companies, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering in Redruth, Newlyn or Penzance, we have got you covered.
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can generally hire the skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection is as convenient as possible, you have the option of offering a preferred collection date when you place your order.
Alternatively, just tell us when you’ve finished loading up your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in many cases, it will be the next working day.
It could take a bit longer to collect your skip during busy periods, but we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The label stems from the fact that these are the most popular sizes that are ordered by builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are suited to numerous types of residential and industrial tasks. These are the biggest skip sizes that can be used for weighty builders waste like top soil, rubble and bricks.
Who will deliver my skip?
To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a number of local and national companies. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to offer customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop door?
Using a skip that has a drop down door helps make filling rubbish into the skip a lot easier. This is especially true with hefty waste such as soil and rubble, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make throwing away big bulky items like household furniture much easier as well.
Most skips can be provided with a drop down door, but this will sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to supply this.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you run a company in Redruth and wish to get rid of large quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a fantastic option. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers on the market.
As the label indicates, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike standard skips, that are picked up by using chains.
