Shepshed Skip Hire FAQs
What happens to the waste in the skip?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get sorted into a range of waste streams, which includes timber, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Can I pile up the waste in my skip?
I’m afraid not. You are only allowed to pack your skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste up above this line makes it unsafe to move, and you may be asked to take away the surplus waste before the skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.
How much does skip hire in Shepshed cost?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Shepshed, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you which sizes we offer in your town and how much each one will cost you to hire. If your skip is going on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric objects must be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric products like washing machines, TVs, toasters, computers and even hair straighteners.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
Our standard hire term will be two weeks from the date of delivery. Having said that, at the time you order your skip, you can let us know a pick up date that will work for you. Of course, 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 anticipated, contact us, and we will get it removed as soon as possible.
Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to keep in mind that this may not always be possible during busier periods. Once collected, the waste will be taken to your local waste recycling station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Do you deliver skips across Leicestershire?
We provide a UK wide skip hire and recycling service through a network of approved and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Shepshed, Broughton Astley, Market Bosworth, Lutterworth or another location in Leicestershire, we can assist.
How long will it take to get a skip in Shepshed?
We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver your skip, we try to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery position, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can lead to a fee for the wasted trip.
What size skips can have a door?
For anyone who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is great for disposing of hefty building and construction rubbish, as it can be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop down door, although these are typically more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally small enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, please let us know when placing your order. We will do our very best to make sure a skip which has a drop door is provided.
Should I be in when the skip is going to be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be in on the day the skip is delivered. You can then be sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip will be placed exactly where you need it. The same applies if you have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly if gates limit access.
On the other hand, if that is not possible, you do not need to be concerned. Just let us know when you are making your booking, and then we will handle the rest.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most frequently supplied for construction and demolition projects. There are generally two skip sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that can be used to get rid of significant quantities of building and demolition materials, like soil, rubble and bricks.
Although branded a builders skip, these can of course be used for many other household and industrial waste disposal tasks.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Shepshed?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only require a permit if it is positioned on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit when your skip will be on private property, like a driveway or on your company premises.
If you have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on your own property, you will save a few pounds.
What types of waste can you throw in a skip?
It is possible to fill the skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly produced from home clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include timber, top soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in your skip depends on which size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight limit. For example, when you are using a skip for heavy construction wastes including stone or dirt, the largest size you could use is an 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials cannot be discarded in your skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.
How big is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, a mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to handle numerous tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be positioned on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most frequently hired by residential customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you have a business in Shepshed and need to dispose of large amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a perfect option. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips that can be hired.
As the name indicates, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike conventional skips, that are picked up by using chains.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We are able to offer a wide range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip perfect for small DIY jobs and house clearances. A common choice for bigger tasks, renovations and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Shepshed companies which produce a big amount of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.
