Shirebrook Skip Hire FAQs

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container that can be used to get rid of huge amounts of waste materials. Generally, these type of skips are hired for industrial applications. Having said that, domestic clients may also use them. It is essential to consider the area they take up, because they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be hired for lightweight waste including paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of soil and concrete.

What skip sizes have a drop door?

Typically, almost all skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you require a drop down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial if hiring a big builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow your rubbish into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini and midi skips, as they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What things can I put in the skip?

You are able to fill up your skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from home clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include wood, dirt, concrete, hedge trimmings, furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you throw in your skip would depend on the size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, when you are using the skip for heavy construction wastes like stone or garden soil, the largest size you would be able to use is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials cannot be disposed of in a skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.

Who will deliver my skip?

We use a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our customers in Shirebrook and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner skip companies are approved and tested to ensure they meet our standards for price, customer service, recycling and reliability.

Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?

It is usually best if you can be available when anyone delivers something to your house. That allows you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed precisely where you need it.

The same thing goes for those who have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.

However, should it be unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.

Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?

No, you can not dispose of old or broken electronic waste items in a skip. This can include such things as laptops, hobs, dishwashers, freezers and computer monitors. Electric products can’t be disposed of in your skip because they can have hazardous materials and components.

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

What different sizes do skips come in?

We can offer a full-range of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip excellent for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A popular option for larger projects, renovations and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Shirebrook firms which produce a big amount of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

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

This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if the skip is on private property, like a driveway or within your business premises.

If you do need to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on private land, it will save you a few pounds.

What will happen to the waste?

When you have finished with your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Shirebrook where we segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it hazardous to transport, and you may be asked to empty any contents above the level load mark. This also means you are unable to make use of sheets of wood, doors or another object, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal obligation to make sure that skips are not overfilled or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure you choose the correct size of skip for your requirements and get in touch if you’re uncertain which size you require. We will be happy to help.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

Normally, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you do not need to hurry through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
