Sherford Skip Hire FAQs

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the most compact size delivered by skip firms and is ideal for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

This site offers a whole range of skip sizes to residential and business clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the huge 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

Listed below are the different sized skips to choose from, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each skip is capable of holding:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
  • 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
  • 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
  • 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, that provides you with sufficient time to fill up the skip. However, if you need a little more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Of course, should you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just let us know once you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.

Will a Sherford skip hire company deliver my skip?

Since we offer a national skip service, we utilise a comprehensive network of approved businesses. These can vary from small family-run skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they match our high customer service and environmental principles.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

Virtually all containers can be supplied with a drop down door, making them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.

Having a skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the container, particularly with weighty materials, like soil and rubble, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, like furniture.

What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste will get sorted into a number of waste streams, which includes timber, soil and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the waste is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Sherford?

In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the highway, 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 company or house, you must get permission from your local authority in Sherford, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we would be glad to organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the license, and you should be aware before placing your order that obtaining the permit can often take up to 2 working days.

How much waste will a builders skip hold?

As the name indicates, a builders skip is the size of skip most often supplied for construction and demolition projects. There are generally two skip sizes which can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers which can be used to get rid of significant quantities of construction and demolition materials, like earth, rubble and rock.

Even though they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for various other residential and business waste disposal tasks.

How much will skip hire in Sherford cost?

The price of getting a skip in Sherford will depend on the size of skip you need. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you require a bigger skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also be more if you want to have a skip placed on the road, because you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, as electronic items including old televisions, fridge freezers, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects must be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly way.

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

If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be there at the time it is delivered. Then you can make sure the lorry has total access and that the skip will be located precisely where you need it. This also is applicable if you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates restrict access.

However, if this is not feasible, you do not have to stress. Simply let us know when you are making your order, and we will take care of the rest.

How long will it take to get a skip in Sherford?

We will make sure your skip will be provided when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.

Although we cannot guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

You should ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will often incur a fee for the wasted trip.

What waste materials can I put in the skip?

It is possible to throw a variety of waste types into your skip. This can include wood, bathroom tiles, plastics or concrete from a house clearance. Tree and bush clippings, dirt and stone from garden tasks are permitted as well. Cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be discarded in a skip.

There are, however, some items that you can’t put in a skip a result of the possible environmental or health risks they may cause.

You are unable to throw out your fridge freezer, computer monitor or your old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these items consist of hazardous elements in one form or another. They should be disposed of separately from your general waste.

If you want hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to arrange a separate collection for this material. Feel free to contact us for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.

Is it okay to load my skip higher than level load line?

It is essential to never overfill the skip. You must not pass the level load line that is shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it becomes very unsafe to move. This means that if you overfill the skip, you might be required to take off the excess waste. No matter how secure you feel the skip to be, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. That is dangerous and is therefore not allowed.

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container used to dispose of huge quantities of waste materials. Predominantly, these type of skips are used for industrial purposes. However, household clients may also order them. It is very important think about the space they will take up, as they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be utilised for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of soil and concrete.
