Retford Skip Hire FAQs
What is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to take on numerous tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be placed on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.
Although most often hired by household customers, the mini skip can also tackle small commercial jobs.
How do you hire a skip in Retford?
Ordering a skip should not be difficult. That is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, enter in your delivery address to see the range of skip sizes we can deliver to Retford. Choose which size you would like to order, and confirm whether it is going to be delivered on private property. Enter in your information and make payment using our secure payment platform.
Once your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with all your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
Am I allowed to throw away electronic products in my skip?
I’m afraid not, as electronic products like old televisions, freezers, computers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects need to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly fashion.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your booking before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will arrive, we strive to offer you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery location, as unsuccessful deliveries will lead to a fee for the wasted trip.
Do I need to be home when the skip will be delivered?
No, you do not need to be home when we deliver the skip. So long as we are able to gain access to where you want it located, we will manage everything.
When you are not going to be in, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when placing your order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be located at a particular side of the property. Or you may need to ensure the skip doesn’t obstruct access to your garage.
Whatever the case may be, simply let us know when you place your order, and we will make sure the instructions will be passed to the delivery driver.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container used to dispose of large amounts of waste materials. Predominantly, these type of skips are used for commercial purposes. Having said that, household customers can also use them. It is important to think about the space they occupy, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be utilised for lightweight waste like plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and rubble.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
A builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These will be the biggest skips that can be used to discard heavy building and demolition waste such as stone, concrete, gravel or garden soil.
The builder’s skip is perfect for a number of tasks. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing the loft space, these big containers are often the most affordable choice available.
How many different skip sizes are available?
We are able to supply a full-range of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip ideal for modest DIY projects and house clearances. A popular choice for larger tasks, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Retford firms with a large volume of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?
Usually, you can have your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t need to rush through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is full ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
Am I allowed to fill up my skip higher than the level load mark?
You should not fill up your skip past the level load line. If you fill it above the tip of this mark, it means your skip will not be safe and secure to move, and you could be asked to take off any excess waste prior to it being picked up.
What will happen to the waste?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into the various waste materials, including wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Will a Retford skip hire company deliver my skip?
Since we provide a national skip hire service, we use a comprehensive network of approved businesses. These can include small local skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental expectations.
What can I put in my skip?
You may use your skip to get rid of a variety of waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and processing a multitude of materials generated from construction work, garden landscaping and home clean-ups. Examples of permitted waste materials include:
- Pieces of furniture
- Garden trimmings
- Garden soil
- Bathroom toilets and sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Many waste materials are usually permitted, and therefore whether you need to dispose of metals, plastic materials, wood or textiles, we can normally take your waste away.
The volume and things you throw in the skip will vary depending on the size skip you have ordered. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you would like dispose of soil and hardcore, for example, the biggest size you would be able to use will be the 8 yard builders skip.
Are there items that I can’t put in the skip?
There are some waste items you are not able to dump in the skip. The reason behind this is that some goods incorporate hazardous components that may cause harm to the environment. They may also be damaging to human health, and so they have to be discarded separately under UK laws.
Some of the items that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- Computer screens
- Battery packs
- Chemical substances
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Retford?
Preferably, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface area. If you are doing a household job, then your driveway is going to be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. However, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public property, you must obtain a permit from your local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be dropped on a road, grass verge or any other public property in Retford. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be issued on your behalf. An additional charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Retford?
This will depend on the size you require and whether you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced option. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used mainly in business settings.

Is it possible to get a skip which has a drop door?
For anybody who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is made for disposing of hefty building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop door, although these are generally more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are generally low enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a container that has a drop door is delivered.
