Shotton Skip Hire FAQs
Do all skips have a drop down door?
Generally, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip that has a drop door is primarily useful when you are hiring a large builder’s skip, because it allows you to wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, since they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
No, you can not dispose of old electronic waste products in your skip. This can include items like laptops, cookers, tumble dryers, refrigerators and computer monitors. These products can’t be disposed of in the skip because they can include dangerous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
Can you deliver skips across Clwyd?
Certainly. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we can supply skips to both residential and commercial customers throughout Clwyd and elsewhere in the UK.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Shotton?
This is determined by the size you need and whether you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the cheapest choice. The most costly and largest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used primarily in industrial settings.

What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?
Before hiring a skip, you must make sure that the sort of waste materials you need to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials have to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you could discard in a skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use your skip to dispose of building and demolition waste, like wood, dirt, rubble, metals and gravel.
Some examples of prohibited items include things like electronic items, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently must be discarded separately from any general waste.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are perfect for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furniture and broken baby toys to paving blocks and garden soil. Having a capacity of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip will save you needing to make several journeys to the local recycling centre.
What will happen to my waste once the skip is picked up?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into a variety of waste types, including stone, soil and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Do I need to be at home when the skip will be delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be there when anybody delivers something to your house. That allows you to make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be positioned just where you need it.
The same goes if you have a company. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are huge industrial scale skips used primarily within the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for businesses that generate significant quantities of waste.
Will a Shotton skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip company will likely deliver your skip in Shotton. We work with a network of both local and nationwide businesses to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are vetted to make certain they meet the high standards we require with regards to customer service, price and environmental performance.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can normally keep a skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of offering a preferred collection date when making your order.
Otherwise, simply let us know when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in many cases, it will be the following working day.
It may take a little bit longer to pick up your skip over busy times, however we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.
What is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is the most common skip which is used in the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is perfect for most building work, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 yard builders skip will be the biggest size which can be used for hefty waste matter such as garden soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.
Can I load up the skip above level load mark?
No, you are only allowed to pack the skip up to the level load line. Loading waste up over this line would make it dangerous to move, and you could be asked to take off the surplus waste before the skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or any other objects to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Shotton, you will have several options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard container, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is great for modest home clearances and DIY jobs.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most popular sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also makes them ideal for house clearances including bulky objects like pieces of furniture and beds.
We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even larger waste disposal needs. These containers are only appropriate for light waste materials, so they can not be hired to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
For further information regarding the various skip sizes offered, such as proportions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We can usually deliver skips to Shotton the next working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking platform will provide you with various delivery dates to pick from. So whether you need your skip delivered asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Shotton?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you want the skip to be placed on land outside of your company or house, you have got to secure authorisation from the local authority in Shotton, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we will be glad to organise this for you, and so it’s one less point to think about. The council will charge a fee for the skip permit, and you should be aware before ordering that securing the licence will often take up to 2 working days.
