Rushden Skip Hire FAQs

Do I have to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be in on the day it is delivered. Then you can ensure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip will be situated precisely where you need it. The same applies when you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially when gates limit access.

Having said that, when this isn’t achievable, you do not have to stress. Just tell us when you are making your booking, and we will take care of the rest.

What size skips can you supply?

Skips are available in a wide range of different sizes to match various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is great for small domestic jobs.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold around 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a great option for garage clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more significant waste disposal job to take on, the builder’s skip could be the most suitable option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title implies, they are the most frequent sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, such as soil and hardcore. But they can just as well be used for household waste such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also offer 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Rushden?

The cost of hiring a skip in Rushden depends on the size of skip you need. The cheapest option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you need a bigger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also be more if you want to have the skip placed on the road, because you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

When you are selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop door. This is great for disposing of hefty building and construction materials, as it can be pushed in the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop-down door, however these are typically more uncommon. This is because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you want a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our utmost to make sure a skip that has a drop door is provided.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These are the biggest skips that can be used to dispose of substantial construction waste materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or clay.

A builders skip is perfect for a wide range of jobs. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing out the garage, these substantial skips are often the most affordable choice available.

What will happen to the rubbish in the skip?

Once you have finished with your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility in or local to Rushden where we will sort the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

How big is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size provided by skip firms and is ideal for small DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies offer a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Rushden?

In most cases, it will be possible to get a skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to get this done, you need to have consent from the local authority in Rushden, which is known as a skip permit. We will organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do impose 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 types of rubbish in a skip?

Your skip can be used to discard many different types of waste. We are used to collecting and processing a multitude of materials from building work, garden projects and household tidy-ups. Examples of allowed waste materials can include:

Many different waste types are usually accepted, and so whether you want to dispose of furniture, plastics, wood or clothing, we can normally take your rubbish away.

The quantity and materials you put in your skip will vary according to the size skip you have chosen. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So to be able to discard top soil and gravel, for example, the biggest size container you would be allowed to hire will be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Are there items which I can’t discard in the skip?

There are a few materials that you will not be permitted to throw out in your skip. The main reason for this is that some items include hazardous elements which can be damaging to the environment. They could also be damaging to human health, therefore they have to be discarded separately under UK laws.

Some of the products which are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • PC screens
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Is it okay to load up the skip above level load mark?

It is vital to not overload your skip. You should not pass the level load mark shown along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it can be very dangerous to move. This means that when you overload the skip, you may be asked to remove the excess waste. No matter how secure you believe the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This is hazardous and is prohibited.

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?

Unfortunately this is not allowed, since electronic items including old televisions, fridge freezers, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly manner.
