Shrewsbury Skip Hire FAQs

How quick can you deliver a skip in Shrewsbury?

We can in most cases deliver skips to Shrewsbury the following working day when an order is made before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking program gives you a range of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you need the skip to arrive ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can usually have your skip for as long as 14 days from your delivery date. You are able to give a preferred pick up day at the time you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us after you have finished with the skip, and we will organise your collection. In most cases, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during busy periods.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?

No, you do not have to be home when we deliver your skip. As long as we can gain access to the place you want it delivered, we are able to manage it all.

In case you are not going to be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you book your order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be positioned at a particular area of your drive. Or you may want to make sure the skip does not prevent access to your garage.

Whatever the situation may be, provide the information when ordering, and then we will ensure your directions will be passed on to the delivery driver.

Can I dispose of electronic items in my skip?

Electric powered products like tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous waste type and so cannot be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered goods need to be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly way.

What are the different skip sizes to pick from?

We provide a full selection of skip sizes to household and business customers all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

Here are the various skip sizes you can choose from, with a rough idea of how much waste 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

For more information about our range of skips, such as measurements plus the waste they can be used for, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

What happens to the waste?

After you have finished with your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer station in or local to Shrewsbury where we will sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

How big is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are fantastic for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them ideal for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furnishings and broken baby toys to paving slabs and rubble. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you having to make multiple visits to the local recycling centre.

Who will deliver my skip?

As we provide a nationwide skip service, we use a diverse network of verified and approved businesses. These include small family-run skip hire businesses to national waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental principles.

Can you deliver skips across Shropshire?

We provide a nationwide skip hire and recycling service through a network of approved and fully licensed local companies. So whether you need skip hire in Shrewsbury, Ellesmere, Wem, Cleobury Mortimer or any other site in Shropshire, we can help.

Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Shrewsbury?

This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is placed on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit if your skip is on private property, like a driveway or inside your company premises.

If you do have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us during the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on private land, it will save you some money.

What types of waste can I put in my skip?

Your skip can be hired to discard lots of different types of waste. We are experienced in collecting and handling a wide variety of materials produced from building jobs, garden projects and house tidy-ups. Some examples of allowed waste types include things like:

  • Household furniture
  • Tree cuttings
  • Soil
  • Bricks and rubble
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

The majority of waste types are accepted, and so whether you would like to dispose of metals, plastic materials, wood or textiles, we can usually take your waste away.

The quantity and materials you put in the skip can vary according to which size skip you have chosen. All skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you would like get rid of garden soil and gravel, as an example, the largest size you will be able to hire is the 8 yard builders skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?

There are a few items which you are not able to dump in the skip. The main reason for this is that some products incorporate hazardous elements that may cause damage to the environment. They could also be hazardous to human health, so they need to be discarded separately within UK law.

Some examples of the items that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • PC screens
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Which size skips have got a drop door?

The vast majority of containers can be supplied with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the skip, especially with heavy materials, such as soil and rubble, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, like pieces of furniture.

What is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is the most frequent skip which is used in the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is great for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the name stems from.

The 8 yard builder’s skip is the biggest size that you can use for hefty waste materials like dirt, concrete, stone and rubble.

Can I load the skip above level load mark?

Unfortunately not. You must only fill your skip up to the level load line. Loading waste up over this line would make it unsafe to transport, and you might be asked to get rid of the extra waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.

We will immediately show you the skip sizes we provide in your location and how much each one costs to hire.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

If you manage a company in Shrewsbury and wish to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a great choice. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers available.

As the label implies, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike standard skips, that are lifted using chains.
