Ross-on-Wye Skip Hire FAQs
How large is the mini skip?
If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to handle numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be positioned on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most commonly chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.
Will a Ross-on-Wye skip hire company deliver my skip?
We use a network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Ross-on-Wye and the rest of the country. All of our partner companies are approved and evaluated to make sure they match our standards for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
Where does my rubbish be taken to once the skip is collected?
The items in the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer facility. Here the contents will be separated by machines and by hand into different waste materials, like metal, paper, hardcore and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to transport large amounts of waste materials. Generally, these skips are hired for industrial applications. However, residential clients can also hire them. It is important to look at the space they occupy, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be used for lightweight waste such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and hardcore.
What is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is regarded as the common skip which is ordered in the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is ideal for most building and construction projects, which is where the name originates from.
The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip will be the largest size which you can use for heavy waste materials such as soil, concrete, rock and gravel.

Is it okay to fill the skip above the top?
It is important never to overload a skip, as you risk being told to remove surplus waste prior to it being collected. No matter what size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, because moving an overloaded container can be dangerous, as objects could fall and result in injury or damage to others.
To prevent this issue, please ensure you hire a size suited to your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full but you have some more waste to dispose of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
It is always a good idea to be available when anyone delivers something to your home. You can then ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located just where you need it.
The same goes for those who have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
Electrical items including tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and so should not be placed in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered objects need to be segregated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we endeavour to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery position, as failed deliveries can lead to a fee for a wasted trip.
How much does skip hire in Ross-on-Wye cost?
To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Ross-on-Wye, enter your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display the sizes we provide in your area and how much each size costs to hire. If your skip will be on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.
Do all skips have a drop door?
Virtually all containers can be supplied with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the container, especially with heavy materials, such as dirt and bricks, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, such as furniture.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
You can usually have your skip for as long as two weeks from the delivery date. You are able to provide a chosen collection day when you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us after you have loaded the skip, and then we will prepare the collection. In most cases, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer over busy periods.
Am I allowed to dispose of all kinds of waste in the skip?
You can use a skip to get rid of a variety of waste materials. We are used to collecting and processing numerous items from construction work, garden projects and house clearances. A few examples of permitted waste products include:
- Household furniture
- Hedge cuttings
- Garden soil
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Many different waste materials will be accepted, therefore whether you want to dispose of metals, plastics, timber or old toys, we can normally take your waste away.
The volume and waste types you put into your skip may vary based on which size skip you ordered. Skips do have a weight limit for safety. So if you want to discard soil and bricks, as an example, the biggest size container you would be permitted to use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?
There are some waste items which you are not able to put in the skip. The main reason for this is that some products include hazardous elements which may be harmful to the environment. They may also be dangerous to human health, therefore they need to be disposed of separately under UK law.
A few of the goods that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas cylinders
- Computer monitors
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
