Ringwood Skip Hire FAQs
How big is a builders skip?
The builders skip is regarded as the frequent skip hired across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builders skip is ideal for most building work, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 yd builders skip will be the biggest size that you can use for hefty waste matter like garden soil, concrete, stone and gravel.
Who will deliver my skip?
To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a variety of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to make sure we can supply customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.
If I would like a skip on the road in Ringwood, will I need to have a permit?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like your skip to be located on land outside of your business or residence, you must secure authorisation from the local council in Ringwood, which is called a permit. If required, we will be happy to organise this for you, therefore it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for your skip permit, and you should be aware before ordering that obtaining the licence will often take up to two working days.
Should I be in when the skip will be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be at home when we are delivering the skip. As long as we can access the place you need it positioned, we will take care of everything.
In case you are not likely to be in, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you book the order. For instance, you may need the skip to be dropped at a particular part of the property. Or you might need to ensure that the skip does not prevent use of your garage.
Whatever the case might be, simply tell us when ordering, and we will make sure your instructions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
What size skips can you supply?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Ringwood, you have multiple sizes to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for small domestic clearances and DIY jobs.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most frequent sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also makes them ideal for house clear ups including bulky items such as household furniture and beds.
We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for anyone with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight materials, so they can not be used to dispose of soil or concrete.
To get more details about the various sizes offered, such as measurements, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

Some goods and materials must be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you are able to throw in your skip include household goods like furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use your skip to get rid of building and construction rubbish, including bricks, soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Examples of restricted items include electronic items, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently have to be disposed of separately from general rubbish.

What happens to the waste?
After you have finished filling up your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer station either in or local to Ringwood where we separate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
Do you deliver to other areas in Hampshire?

What size skips have got a drop down door?
For anybody who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is great for disposing of heavy building and construction materials, as it can be pushed in the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop-down door, however these are less common. The reason being these sizes are typically low enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, please let us know when placing your order. We will do our best to make sure a skip which has a drop door is delivered.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a large container that is used to dispose of large quantities of rubbish. These bins are primarily for industrial use but can be hired by domestic customers as well. Having said that, you will require a good amount of room as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger compared to the typical skip you will likely see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, roro containers should only be provided for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and paper, so they are not appropriate for disposing of concrete and bricks.
Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
No, you can not dispose of old electrical waste products in your skip. This can include items like printers, cookers, dishwashers, freezers and televisions. These items can’t be disposed of in the skip because they can include hazardous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
Is it okay to load up the skip above the side?
It is important never to overfill the skip. You should not pass the level load mark indicated on the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it becomes very dangerous to transport. Which means that when you overload your skip, you might be required to take off the excess rubbish. Regardless of how secure you feel the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This can be unsafe and is not allowed.
How big is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are ideal for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furnishings and old toys to paving blocks and rubble. Having a capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip will save you having to make numerous trips to your local recycling centre.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
You can typically keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the delivery date. You are able to provide a chosen collection date at the time you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us once you have finished with the skip, and then we will plan your collection. Normally, this will be the following working day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer during busy periods.
