Scunthorpe Skip Hire FAQs

Can I pile up the waste in my skip?

Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it dangerous to move, and you will then be asked to remove any materials over the level load line. This means you can not make use of sheets of wood, doors or some other item, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal obligation to make sure that bins aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure that you select the correct size of skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you’re unsure which size you need. We would be happy to help.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Scunthorpe?

We use a large network of both local and national skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in Scunthorpe and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner firms are approved and tested to make certain they satisfy our standards for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge skip that can be used to dispose of large quantities of rubbish. These containers are mainly for industrial use but can be hired by domestic customers also. However, you need a good amount of space because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger compared to the typical skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.

Due to the size, these containers can only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and rubble.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you have asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you confirm your booking prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we try to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we request is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery location, as failed deliveries will result in a charge for a wasted journey.

If I require a skip on the road in Scunthorpe, will I need a permit?

In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need your skip to be placed on land outside of your company or residence, you must receive permission from your local council in Scunthorpe, which is called a permit. If necessary, we will be glad to arrange this for you, so it’s one less point to think about. The council does charge a fee for the road permit, and you should know before booking that getting the licence can often take up to 2 working days.

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

No, you don’t have to be home when we are delivering your skip. As long as we can access the place you want it delivered, we can manage everything.

When you will not be in, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For instance, you might want the skip to be positioned at a particular side of your driveway. Alternatively, you might need to make sure the skip does not hinder use of your garage.

Whatever the situation might be, let us know when you place your order, and then we will ensure your instructions are passed to the lorry driver.

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

The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yd skip. The name comes from the fact that these are the most popular sizes ordered by builders and tradespeople.

These substantial containers are perfect for a multitude of residential and business jobs. They are the largest skips which can be used for heavy builders waste such as dirt, rubble and concrete.

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods must be kept separate from general waste to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric powered products such as washing machines, TVs, toasters, tablets and even hairdryers.

Will the skip have a drop down door?

Having a skip with a drop down door makes loading rubbish into it much easier. This is especially true with heavy waste materials like dirt and stone, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make throwing away big bulky items like household furniture easier as well.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, however this will sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.

What happens to the waste in my skip?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed.

We are proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!

If you require a larger skip, like an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also be more if you want to have your skip placed on the road, since you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Am I able to dispose of all types of waste in a skip?

Before ordering your skip, you must make sure that the sort of waste materials you intend to discard is allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

Examples of waste types you are able to throw in a skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You may also use a skip to throw out building and construction rubbish, including wood, soil, stone, metals and gravel.

Some examples of restricted items include electronic goods, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately from your general waste.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can usually hire a skip for up to 14 days from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, there is the option of providing a preferred collection date when you make your order.

Otherwise, just let us know when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the following working day.

It might take a little bit longer to collect your skip during busy periods, however we will always try to come as quickly as possible.

How large is the mini skip?

For those who have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, a mini skip might be the best option. What size is identified as a mini skip differs from business to business, based on what sizes they supply.

The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to have a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. The price depends on the actual size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are perfect for household jobs like modest DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you need it put on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

Other areas covered include Mablethorpe, Market Rasen, Sleaford, Louth, Holbeach, Spalding, Crowland and Spilsby.
