Sheringham Skip Hire FAQs
When will my skip be delivered?
We can typically deliver skips to Sheringham the following working day when your order is made before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking program will give you a range of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you want the skip to arrive asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
Who will deliver my skip?
Since we offer a national skip service, we use a comprehensive network of verified and approved businesses. These vary from small local skip hire businesses to national waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they satisfy our high customer service and environmental requirements.
What is the cost of skip hire in Sheringham?
This depends on the size you require and whether you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced option. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used primarily in industrial settings.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?
Our normal hire period is a fortnight from your delivery date. However, at the time you book your skip, you can provide a collection date that is best for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is finished with earlier than anticipated, contact us, and we will get it removed as quickly as possible.
Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. However, it is important to keep in mind that this may not always be possible at busy times. Once collected, your waste will be transported to your local waste transfer facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets separated into several different waste streams, which includes stone, metals and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Can I throw away electrical items in my skip?
No, you cannot put old or unwanted electrical waste products in a skip. This can include such things as laptops or computers, microwaves, tumble dryers, fridges and televisions. Electric objects can’t be thrown in the skip as they can include hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.
What is classed as being a builders skip?
The builders skip is the most popular skip ordered across the country. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is ideal for most building work, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip will be the largest size which you can use for heavy waste including garden soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.
Do I need to be at home when the skip will be delivered?
It is always best if you can be in when anyone delivers something to your house. That allows you to make sure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be located precisely where you want it.
The same thing goes for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, when it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
What kinds of waste can you put in a skip?
Prior to ordering a skip, you must make sure that the type of rubbish you wish to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials have to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Waste types you could put in your skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use your skip to throw out building and construction rubbish, such as old bricks, dirt, rubble, metals and concrete.
Some examples of restricted items include things like electronic products, tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop door?
In general, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you want a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip that has a drop door is mainly beneficial if you are hiring a large builder’s skip, as it enables you to wheelbarrow rubbish into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini skips, since they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are big industrial size skips used mainly within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for businesses that generate significant volumes of waste materials.
If I need a skip on a road in Sheringham, will I need a permit?
Usually, it will be possible to have the skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But in order to do this, you will need to get approval from the local council in Sheringham, which is called a skip permit. We can organise this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for the permit, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We provide a complete selection of skip capacities to household and industrial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the huge 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

Can I load up the skip above the side?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it unsafe to transport, and you will then be asked to empty any materials higher than the level load line. This also means you can not use sheets of timber, doors or another item, as this will increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal obligation to ensure that containers aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure that you select the appropriate size of skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you are unsure which size you require. We would be pleased to help.

What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small containers are ideal for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and broken toys to paving blocks and bricks. With a total capacity of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make several journeys to your local recycling centre.
