Rowley Regis Skip Hire FAQs
Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
Electrical products including television sets, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous waste and therefore can not be placed in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic goods need to be segregated from other materials. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
Can you deliver to other areas in West Midlands?
Along with delivering skips and containers to Rowley Regis, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across West Midlands. By utilising a network of local and national waste management businesses, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to Rowley Regis, Solihull or Stourbridge, we have got you covered.
When will my skip be delivered?
When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we will even give you a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed during the online order process.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in my skip?
It is possible to throw a variety of waste into your skip. This can include wood, ceramic tiles, plastics or concrete from a property clearance. Tree and bush clippings, top soil and stone from garden work is permitted also. Cupboards from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be thrown in your skip.
However, there are some items that you are not allowed to put in a skip because of the possible environmental or health risks they may cause.
You can not throw in your fridge, computer or your old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things include hazardous components in one type or another. They should be disposed of separately from your normal rubbish.
If you want hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to schedule an independent service for this waste. Please email for further information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

How can I order a skip?
We have created our online booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. The first task is to enter your delivery postcode to view the range of skip sizes we are able to provide in Rowley Regis. Pick the best size to meet your requirements and enter the details of when and where you need your skip delivered. You can then make payment through the secure payment platform, and we will send an email to verify the transaction as soon as your booking is complete!
Is it okay to load my skip higher than the level load line?
It is vital to not overfill the skip. You must not pass the level load mark shown along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it becomes very unsafe to transport. This means that when you overload the skip, you might be required to take off the excess rubbish. No matter how secure you think the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be unsafe and is therefore prohibited.
What is the cost of skip hire in Rowley Regis?
Our aim is to provide you with the cheapest skip hire service in Rowley Regis. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip that you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have your skip positioned on the street or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of the skip permit.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?
The waste in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer facility. Here the waste will be separated by machines and by hand into various waste materials, like soil, paper, stone and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.
Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?
You don’t have to be home when the skip is going to be delivered, but it will help. Being home whenever the skip is due for delivery means you can ensure the driver is given full access and that the skip will be positioned precisely where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is being hired to a business property, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, in the event you can’t be around during delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place your order, and we will organise things from there.
What is a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builders skip means the size of skip most frequently used for building and demolition work. There are typically two sizes which can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to dispose of large volumes of building and demolition waste materials, including dirt, rubble and bricks.
Although branded a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for multiple other household and industrial waste disposal tasks.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you operate a company in Rowley Regis and need to get rid of large volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a fantastic option. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the name suggests, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, in contrast to regular skips, which are lifted by using chains.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
When you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is made for disposing of hefty building and construction materials, as it can be walked in the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop-down door, however these are generally more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are generally low enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our utmost to make sure a container that has a drop door is supplied.
Who will deliver my skip?
To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work in partnership with a variety of local and national companies. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we can offer customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Rowley Regis?
This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if the skip is on private property, like a driveway or on your business premises.
If you need to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have the skip on your own property, it will save you some money.
How long can I hire a skip for?
You can normally keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the delivery date. It is possible to give a chosen pick up date at the time you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us when you have loaded the skip, and then we will arrange your collection. In most cases, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take a bit longer over hectic times.
What size is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some household waste, the mini skip may be just the thing 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 deal with many jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be placed on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit.
Although most commonly hired by household customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.
