Below are a few of the typical questions we get regarding our skip hire and recycling services.

Ripley Skip Hire FAQs

Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered products such as cookers, monitors, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.

What size skips can you provide?

We can offer a wide range of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for small DIY projects and household clearances. A popular choice for bigger projects, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.

For Ripley businesses which produce a significant quantity of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to 14 days. In most cases, this will give you plenty of time to load the skip. However, if you do need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Of course, if you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container used to dispose of large amounts of waste. Primarily, these skips are used for industrial applications. Having said that, domestic clients can also hire them. It is important to take into account the area they will take up, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be used for light materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and stone.

What is the process of ordering a skip in Ripley?

This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you want to hire. Let us know if the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or local authority property (such as the road). After that, select the date you want your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment with our secure online payment platform. That is it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Ripley on the date you have chosen.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Ripley?

If at all possible, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface. When you are carrying out a domestic task, then a drive is going to be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. On the other hand, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public land, you will need to have a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be positioned on the street, grass verge or any other public property in Ripley. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be issued for you. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?

It is always a good idea to be there when anybody delivers something to your home. You can then ensure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned just where you need it.

The same applies for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.

When will my skip be delivered?

If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the next day. In some instances, we will even provide a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed when going through the order process.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are fantastic for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and broken toys to paving blocks and concrete. Having a total capacity of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you needing to make numerous journeys to your local recycling centre.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Ripley?

To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work together with a number of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.

Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?

Unfortunately not. You must only fill the skip up to the level load line. Loading waste materials up over this line makes it unsafe to move, and you could be told to take off the extra waste before the skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.

Will you deliver skips across Derbyshire?

Certainly, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can provide skips to locations across Derbyshire, such as Ripley, Sandiacre, Matlock and Ashbourne. So no matter where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

What size is a builders skip?

The builder’s skip is the most frequent skip that is ordered throughout the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builder’s skip is ideal for most building and demolition jobs, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 yd builder’s skip will be the largest option which can be used for hefty waste including dirt, concrete, bricks and gravel.

What happens to the rubbish in the skip?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste gets segregated into various waste types, including timber, metals and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!

What types of waste can you throw in a skip?

Before ordering your skip, it is important to ensure that the type of rubbish you need to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials must be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Some examples of waste types you are able to throw in your skip include home items like furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You may also use your skip to discard building and demolition rubbish, like bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and gravel.

Examples of prohibited items include things like electrical products, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.

Is it possible to get a skip that has a drop door?

When you are selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is ideal for disposing of hefty building and construction waste, as it can be pushed into the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop door, however these are typically less common. Simply because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our best to make sure a skip with a drop door is supplied.
