Rothwell Skip Hire FAQs

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

Our normal hire period will be two weeks from the delivery date. Having said that, when you order your skip, you can let us know a collection date that will work for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is fully loaded earlier than expected, contact us, and we will get it picked up as soon as possible.

We will usually be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. But, it is important to bear in mind this may not be possible during busy times. Once collected, your skip will be taken to your local waste recycling facility, where it will be processed and sorted.

What will happen to the rubbish?

Once you have finished filling your skip, we will come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility either in or local to Rothwell where we will separate the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.

Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?

Electric powered items such as televisions, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore cannot be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered items need to be separated from other materials. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

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

You don’t really need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered, however it will help. Being there when your skip arrives means you can ensure the lorry driver can be given full access and that the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is delivered to company premises, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

However, when you can’t be available for the delivery, don’t worry. We just ask that you let us know when you place the order, and then we will organise everything from there.

What size is a builder’s skip?

A builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. They are the biggest skips that can be hired to discard weighty building and demolition materials such as stone, concrete, gravel or garden soil.

The builders skip is great for a number of projects. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning out the garden shed, these substantial skips will often be the most affordable choice available.

What size is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a cheap skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip could 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 waste disposal choice to take on many tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be situated on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.

Although most often hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.

What are the different skip sizes to pick from?

Skips are offered in a selection of different sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small residential projects.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is an excellent choice for garden clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to handle, a builder’s skip might be the smartest choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title implies, they are the most frequent sizes hired by builders for construction waste, such as clay and stone. But they can just as well be hired for household waste such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

We also deliver 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Am I allowed to fill up my skip above the top?

You must not fill your skip past the level load mark. When you fill it above the tip of this level, it means that your skip is not safe and secure to transport, and you might be asked to take off any extra waste prior to it being collected.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Rothwell?

The cost of hiring a skip in Rothwell is determined by the size of skip you want. The cheapest option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you require a larger sized skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also be more if you need to have a skip placed on the highway, because you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Do all skips have a drop door?

Virtually all containers can be supplied with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.

Having a skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the container, particularly with heavy materials, such as dirt and concrete, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky items, like pieces of furniture.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container used to get rid of significant quantities of waste. In the majority of cases, these skips are used for business applications. Having said that, household clients may also use them. It is very important look at the area they will occupy, as they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be utilised for light waste like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and stone.

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

In most cases, it is possible to have your skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to get this done, you must get approval from your local council in Rothwell, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council do charge a fee for this permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to authorise this.

Can I dispose of all sorts of rubbish in the skip?

You are allowed to load your skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly produced from house clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include wood, dirt, bricks, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you throw in your skip depends on the skip size you have ordered, because there is a weight limit. For example, in the event that you will be using the skip for heavy construction waste like bricks or soil, the maximum size you could get is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials cannot be discarded in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
