Saltash Skip Hire FAQs

How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?

The phrase builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The name stems from the fact that they are the most popular sizes hired by builders and tradespeople.

These substantial containers are great for numerous residential and industrial projects. They are the largest sizes that can be used for heavy builders waste such as dirt, rubble and gravel.

Can I pile up waste in my skip?

Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it hazardous to transport, and you will probably be asked to remove any items over the level load mark. This means you are not allowed to use sheets of wood, doors or any other object, since this will increase the size of the skip. We have a legal obligation to ensure that bins are not overfilled or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure you select the appropriate size of skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you’re uncertain which size you need. We would be pleased to help.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

If you are searching for a low-cost skip to dispose of some household rubbish, a mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to take on numerous tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be positioned on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.

Although most commonly hired by residential customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.

If I want a skip on the road in Saltash, will I need to get a permit?

Usually, it will be possible to get the skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But in order to do this, you must get consent from the local authority in Saltash, which is known as a skip permit. We will organise this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for this permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large industrial scale skips used mainly within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for organisations that produce significant volumes of waste materials.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, that will give you plenty of time to fill up your skip. However, if you need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Naturally, in the event you finish with the skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just contact us when you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.

Am I allowed to put electrical products in the skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, because electrical products including old televisions, cookers, computers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.

How quick can you deliver a skip to Saltash?

When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we will even offer a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed during the order process.

Am I allowed to put all kinds of waste in my skip?

You are allowed to load your skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from house clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include wood, garden soil, concrete, hedge trimmings, furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you throw in your skip will depend on which skip size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight limit. For example, if you will be using the skip for heavy building wastes such as bricks or dirt, the biggest size you would be able to get is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials cannot be discarded in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.

What skip sizes can you supply?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Saltash, you will have multiple options to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 cubic yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is great for small domestic clearances and DIY jobs.

The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also means they are well suited for house clear ups including bulky items like furniture and beds.

We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people and businesses with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These sizes are only suitable for lightweight waste, so they can’t be used to dispose of soil or stone.

For further information about the different capacities available, including proportions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.

What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?

The contents of your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling station. Here the rubbish will be separated by machines and by hand into numerous waste materials, like metal, plastics, rubble and timber. Sorting the waste in this way helps to increase the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

What is the process of hiring a skip in Saltash?

This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you wish to hire. Let us know whether the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or local authority property (such as the road). After that, choose the day you want the skip to get delivered. Check your order and then make payment using our secure online payment system. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to Saltash on the day you have chosen.

Will a Saltash skip hire company deliver my skip?

To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work with a variety of local and national businesses. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to provide customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

It usually is best if you can be in when anybody delivers anything to your property. You can then ensure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be dropped exactly where you want it.

The same applies if you have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.

Will you deliver skips across Cornwall?

Absolutely. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we can deliver skips to residential and business customers across Cornwall and anywhere else within the UK.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Saltash?

Our aim is to give you the cheapest skip hire service in Saltash. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you wish to have a skip located on the road or other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the added price of the skip permit.

Can I have a skip which has a drop door?

Nearly all containers can be delivered with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.

Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the container, especially with weighty materials, such as dirt and bricks, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.

Other areas covered include Wadebridge, Stratton, Penryn, Camborne, St Austell, St Ives, Callington and Hayle.
