Salcombe Skip Hire FAQs
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Salcombe?
In the vast majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need your skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or home, you must get authorisation from your local council in Salcombe, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we would be glad to arrange this on your behalf, so it’s one less thing to worry about. The council does charge a fee for your license, and you should know before ordering that obtaining the licence can sometimes take up to two working days.
How long can I keep a skip for?
Usually, you can have a skip for a maximum of two week. This means you don’t have to hurry through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.
Can I throw electrical items in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, as electrical items including old TVs, refrigerators, printers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly way.
Do you deliver to other areas in Devon?
Certainly. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we are able to supply skips to residential and business customers throughout Devon and elsewhere in the UK.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are ideal for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furnishings and old toys to paving slabs and rubble. With a capacity of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip will save you having to make several journeys to your local recycling centre.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Salcombe?
The cost of getting a skip in Salcombe will depend on the size of skip you want. The least expensive skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you need 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 your skip positioned on the road, since you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Do I have to be home when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be at home when we are delivering your skip. Providing we can gain access to where you want it located, we are able to manage it all.
In case you will not be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when booking your order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be located on a particular side of the property. Or you may need to make sure the skip doesn’t prevent entry to your garage.
Whatever the case might be, simply let us know when ordering, and then we will ensure your directions will be passed to the delivery driver.

What size skips do you offer?
We provide a full range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip great for small DIY jobs and house clearances. A common choice for bigger jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Salcombe firms which generate a big quantity of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?
As the name suggests, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most frequently supplied for construction and demolition work. There are generally two sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to get rid of significant quantities of building and demolition waste materials, including dirt, concrete and rock.
Although they are labelled a builders skip, they can be used for a number of other domestic and business waste disposal tasks.
Will a skip hire company from Salcombe deliver my skip?
A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Salcombe. We make use of a network of both regional and national companies to allow us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully assessed to ensure they satisfy the high standards we demand in terms of service, price and environmental performance.
What types of rubbish can I throw in a skip?
It is possible to load the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from home clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, top soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, household furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in your skip will depend on which size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight limit. For example, in the event that you are using a skip for heavy construction wastes such as rubble or garden soil, the biggest size you can hire is an 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be discarded in a skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
How soon can you deliver a skip in Salcombe?
We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your booking prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive, we strive to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery site, as failed delivery attempts can lead to a charge for the wasted trip.
Where does my rubbish be taken to when the skip is collected?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get separated into various waste types, which includes wood, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?
Nearly all skip sizes can be delivered with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the bin, especially with heavy materials, such as soil and rubble, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky items, like pieces of furniture.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container used to get rid of huge amounts of waste. Predominantly, these skips are used for commercial uses. However, household customers can also use them. It is very important take into account the area they will occupy, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be utilised for light-weight waste including paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of dirt and concrete.
Can I fill the skip above the level load mark?
No. You must only pack the skip up to the level load line. Loading rubbish up above this line will make it unsafe to transport, and you could be told to take off the excess waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.
