Sandiacre Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to fill the skip above level load mark?
You must not load the skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it up over the tip of this level, it means that the skip is not safe to transport, and you may be asked to take off the excess rubbish prior to it being collected.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Sandiacre?
Ideally, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface area. For anybody who is doing a domestic project, then the drive is going to be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither is available, the street or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public property, you need to obtain a permit from your local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be positioned on the street, grass verge as well as other public property in Sandiacre. If this is required, we will request the permit to be granted on your behalf. An additional fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the different waste materials, like wood, metals, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How do I order a skip in Sandiacre?
This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (like the street). Then, pick the day you need the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and make payment using our secure online payment platform. Job done! We will deliver your skip to Sandiacre on the date you have chosen.
Which size skips will have a drop door?
The vast majority of skip sizes can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the skip, especially with weighty materials, like garden soil and gravel, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.
How long can I hire a skip for?
The standard hire term will be 2 weeks from your date of delivery. Having said that, at the time you book the skip, you can choose a pick up date that is perfect for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if the skip is loaded earlier than expected, let us know, and we will get it removed as quickly as possible.
Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to bear in mind this may not always be possible during busier times. Once collected, your skip will be transported to a local waste transfer centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Electrical products such as televisions, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore can not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic products must be separated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
How large is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are fantastic for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furnishings and broken baby toys to paving slabs and bricks. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make multiple journeys to the local recycling centre.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a huge skip that is used to get rid of large quantities of waste. These skips are mainly for business use but can be hired by household customers as well. Having said that, you should have a good amount of room since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger in comparison to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.
As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off skips can only be hired for light materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and bricks.
What is classed as a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most often hired for building and construction projects. There are typically two different sizes that can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to get rid of large amounts of building and demolition materials, like soil, concrete and bricks.
Although they are branded a builder’s skip, these can be used for multiple other household and business waste disposal tasks.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be at home when we deliver the skip. Provided that we can gain access to the place you need it positioned, we can manage everything.
In case you are not likely to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you place the order. For example, you might want the skip to be positioned at a particular side of the property. Or you might want to ensure the skip does not block use of your garage.
No matter what the case may be, provide the details when you place your order, and then we will ensure your instructions are passed on to the delivery driver.
What types of waste materials can I put in my skip?
A skip may be used to dispose of lots of different types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and handling a multitude of items generated from construction work, garden landscaping and home tidy-ups. Examples of permitted waste types can include:
- Garden trimmings
- Bathroom sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Most materials will be allowed, so whether you need to discard metals, plastics, timber or clothing, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The volume and waste types you throw in your skip will vary depending on which size skip you ordered. All skips have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you need to discard top soil and hardcore, as an example, the largest size you will be permitted to hire would be the 8 yard builders skip.
What sort of materials am I not allowed to put in a skip?
There are several waste materials which you will not be able to dump in the skip. The reason behind this is that these products incorporate hazardous materials which may cause damage to the environment. They may also be dangerous to human health, therefore they must be discarded separately under UK laws.
A few examples of the products that are restricted include:
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- PC screens
- Car tyres
What skip sizes can you offer?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Sandiacre, you have various sizes to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is excellent for small house 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 comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their big capacity also makes them suitable for house clear ups including large objects like furniture and beds.
We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for those with even bigger waste disposal needs. These skips are only suited to light materials, so they cannot be used to dispose of soil or stone.
To get more details about the different skip sizes offered, including proportions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
