What is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to handle many tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be situated on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most often chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.
How do I order a skip in Royston?
We have developed our booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. Step one is to type in your delivery postcode to check out the range of skip sizes we are able to provide in Royston. Pick the right size to meet your requirements and provide us with the details of where and when you would like the skip delivered. After that you can make payment with the secure payment system, and we’ll send an email to verify the order once your order is done!
What is a builder’s skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The name comes from the fact that they are the most common sizes ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are perfect for an array of household and business tasks. These are the largest skip sizes that can be used for heavy builders waste such as dirt, stone and gravel.
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can normally keep your skip for as many as two weeks from your date of delivery. It is possible to provide a preferred pick up date at the time you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can let us know after you have finished, and we will arrange your collection. Normally, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer over hectic times.
What skip sizes can have a drop door?
Generally speaking, most skips can be provided with a drop door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip that has a drop door is primarily beneficial when you are hiring a large builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, because they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Will you deliver skips across South Yorkshire?
As well as delivering skips and containers to Royston, we can also deliver to other towns and villages throughout South Yorkshire. By utilising a network of regional and national waste management and recycling companies, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Royston, Doncaster or Bawtry, we have got it covered.
What kinds of waste can I dispose of in a skip?
It is possible to load your skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from house clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include wood, top soil, concrete, hedge trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you throw in your skip would depend on which size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, in the event that you will be using your skip for heavy building waste such as rubble or garden soil, the biggest size you can use is an 8 cubic yard.
Some materials should not be disposed of in a skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.
Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?
No, you do not need to be home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we are able to access where you want it delivered, we are able to manage it all.
If you will not be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you place the order. For example, you might need the skip to be dropped at a particular part of your property. Or you might want to be sure that the skip doesn’t block use of your garage.
Whatever the situation might be, simply let us know when you place your order, and then we will make sure the directions are passed on to the lorry driver.
What will happen to the waste?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into a variety of waste types, which includes wood, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the waste is recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
When will my skip be delivered?
We can usually deliver skips to Royston the following working day when an order is made before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.

No, you cannot dispose of old or unwanted electronic waste products in a skip. This can include things such as laptops, hobs, washing machines, freezers and tv sets. Electrical items can’t be discarded in the skip because they can include dangerous materials and components.

What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?
If you run a company in Royston and wish to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container might be a fantastic option. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips available.
As the name indicates, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, as opposed to normal skips, that are picked up using chains.
Can I fill up the skip higher than the top?
It is vital never to overload a skip. You should not pass the level load mark shown on the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it will become very unsafe to transport. Which means that if you overload your skip, you may be asked to take off the surplus rubbish. No matter how safe you feel the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This can be dangerous and is therefore not allowed.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Royston?
This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a permit when it is placed on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit when your skip will be on private property, such as a drive or within your company premises.
If you have 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 we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on your own land, you will save a few pounds.
