Sandown Skip Hire FAQs

Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?

I’m afraid not, since electronic items including old televisions, refrigerators, pcs and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects have to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly manner.

How big is a roll-on roll-off container?

A roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a huge container that is used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These containers are mainly for business use but can be hired by household customers too. Having said that, you will require a lot of room because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger in comparison to the typical skip you will likely see on the roadside.

Due to the size, these skips can only be used for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and bricks.

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

This will depend on the size you will need and whether you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the cheapest option. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.

Where will my waste go once the skip is picked up?

After you have finished filling your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer station in or local to Sandown where we separate the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

Do you deliver to other areas in Isle of Wight?

Along with delivering skips and containers to Sandown, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Isle of Wight. Through our network of local and national waste management businesses, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Sandown, Cowes or Ventnor, we have got it covered.

How large is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are great for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them ideal for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furnishings and broken baby toys to paving slabs and bricks. With a volume of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you having to make numerous journeys to your local recycling centre.

What is the process of ordering a skip in Sandown?

This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you wish to hire. Let us know whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or local authority property (like the street). Next, pick the day you would like the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Sandown on the day you have chosen.

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

You don’t have to be home when your skip is delivered, however it will help. Being there when the skip is being delivered means you can ensure the lorry is given complete access and that the skip is placed precisely where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is being hired to a business property, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

Having said that, if you can’t be around at the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you book your order, and we will arrange everything from there.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

The vast majority of skip sizes can be provided with a drop down door, making them easy to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.

A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the skip, particularly with heavy materials, like dirt and bricks, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky items, such as household furniture.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Sandown?

In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like the skip to be placed on land outside of your company or house, you must receive authorisation from the local authority in Sandown, which is known as a permit. If required, we will be glad to organise this for you, and so it’s one less point to worry about. The council does charge a fee for the skip license, plus you should be aware before placing your order that obtaining the permit will often take up to 2 working days.

What is a builder’s skip?

The term builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The label comes from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes used by general builders and tradespeople.

These big containers are perfect for an array of domestic and industrial jobs. These are the biggest skips that can be used for hefty builders waste like top soil, stone and concrete.

How soon can you deliver a skip to Sandown?

We will ensure your skip is delivered when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the very next day.

Although we are not able to promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to reach you within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

It is important to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will often incur a fee for the wasted trip.

How long can I hire a skip for?

Generally, you can have the skip for a maximum of two week. This means you don’t need to rush through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.

Am I allowed to load the skip above level load line?

It is important not to overfill a skip, as you risk being asked to take off surplus waste prior to it being collected. Whatever size you hire, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as transporting an overloaded container can be dangerous, as waste could fall and result in injury or damage to other people.

To avoid this situation, please make sure you hire a skip size appropriate for your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full but you have additional waste to dispose of, we are happy to provide an exchange.

What sort of rubbish can you throw in a skip?

This is among the most popular questions people have about our service. What is important to consider is that you can fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of waste which can come from garden work, building work and home clearances.

Some of the most common things which we see in our skips include dirt, wood, bush trimmings, kitchen cabinets, toilets, and various other household objects.

There are also some items that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This consists of any electronic items (dishwashers, televisions and laptops for example), old car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them has to abide by a completely different procedure to ensure they don’t result in harm to the environment.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Sandown?

Since we offer a national skip hire service, we use a comprehensive network of approved companies. These can include small local skip hire companies to national waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.

How many different skip sizes are there?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Sandown, you will have various sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 cubic yard container, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for small household clearances and DIY work.

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

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also makes them great for house clearances involving bulky objects like pieces of furniture and beds.

We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people with even larger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only suitable for lightweight materials, so they can’t be hired to get rid of garden soil or stone.
