Shaw Skip Hire FAQs

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

The term builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The label stems from the fact that they are the most typical sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial skips are great for a multitude of domestic and industrial projects. These are the largest sizes which can be used for weighty builders waste like soil, rubble and bricks.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

We can supply a wide range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip perfect for small DIY jobs and house clearances. A common option for bigger jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Shaw companies with a big volume of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How do you hire a skip?

This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you want to hire. Let us know if the skip shall be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or public property (such as the road). After that, choose the date you would like your skip to be delivered. Check your order details and make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Shaw on the date you have chosen.

How long can I keep the skip for?

You can normally keep the skip for up to two weeks from your delivery date. You can give a preferred collection day at the time you place your order. Alternatively, you can tell us when you have loaded the skip, and then we will organise the collection. Normally, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during busy times.

What is the cost of skip hire in Shaw?

To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Shaw, insert your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display the skip sizes we provide in your town and how much each one will cost to order. If the skip is going to be on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.

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

When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be at home when it is delivered. You can then ensure that the skip lorry has full access and that the skip will be placed exactly where you want it. This also is true when you have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates limit access.

On the other hand, if that isn’t feasible, you don’t need to worry. Just tell us when you are placing your booking, and we will take care of everything.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the very next day. In some cases, we will even offer a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed when going through the online order process.

Will a Shaw skip hire company deliver my skip?

We use a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Shaw and the rest of the UK. All of our partner skip hire providers are verified and tested to guarantee they match our expectations for price, service, recycling rates and reliability.

What size is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are great for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.

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

Can I fill up the skip above the top?

It is vital to not overload the skip. You can not pass the level load mark that is indicated on the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it can be very dangerous to transport. This means that when you overload your skip, you might be asked to take away the excess rubbish. Regardless of how safe you believe the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This is unsafe and is therefore not allowed.

Will my skip come with a drop down door?

If you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is ideal for disposing of heavy building and construction waste materials, as it can be walked in the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop-down door, though they are less common. This is because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to ensure a container with a drop door is supplied.

What kinds of waste am I able to get rid of in a skip?

You can use your skip to dispose of many different waste materials. We are used to picking up and processing lots of materials from building work, garden projects and household clearances. A few examples of permitted waste products include things like:

  • Home furniture
  • Tree cuttings
  • Garden soil
  • Rubble
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Cabinets and units

Many waste materials will be accepted, therefore whether you would like to discard furniture, plastic materials, wood or unwanted toys, we can usually take your waste away.

The quantity and things you discard in the skip can vary depending on the size skip you ordered. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you wish to get rid of soil and bricks, for example, the largest size container you will be able to use is the 8 cubic yard skip.

Are there any items which I can’t discard in the skip?

There are some waste items you will not be allowed to dispose of in the skip. The reason behind this is that some products include hazardous components which could be damaging to the environment. They can also be hazardous to human health, so they must be discarded separately under UK laws.

A few examples of the items which are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Battery packs
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Can I throw electrical products in the skip?

No, you cannot dispose of old or broken electronic waste items in a skip. This can include things like printers, hobs, dishwashers, refrigerators and television sets. Electric products can’t be disposed of in a skip because they can include hazardous materials and components.

Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.

Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Shaw?

In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you would like the skip to be situated on land outside of your business or house, you have got to get permission from the local authority in Shaw, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we will gladly organise this for you, therefore it’s one less point to worry about. The council does charge a fee for the skip license, plus you should be aware before ordering that obtaining the licence can sometimes take up to 2 working days.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you operate a business in Shaw and need to dispose of large volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a great option. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips that you can hire.

As the label implies, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to conventional skips, that are picked up by using chains.

What happens to the rubbish?

If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get sorted into various waste streams, such as stone, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
