Sidmouth Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?
No. You are only allowed to fill the skip up to the level load line. Piling waste materials up above this line would make it unsafe to move, and you can be told to take away the extra waste before your skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to raise the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.
How do I order a skip online?
We have developed our online booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. Step one is to enter your postcode to check out the range of skip sizes we can deliver in Sidmouth. Pick the right size to meet your requirements and enter the details of where and when you need the skip delivered. Then you can make payment with our secure payment system, and we will send you an email to verify the transaction once your order is complete!
How long can I hire the skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. In most cases, that gives you sufficient time to load your skip. However, if you need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, if you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just contact us when you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Sidmouth?
In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you need the skip to be placed on land outside of your company or house, you have got to secure permission from your local council in Sidmouth, which is referred to as a permit. If necessary, we would be happy to arrange this for you, therefore it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for the permit, and you should be aware before ordering that obtaining the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
What is a mini skip?
When you have a small amount of waste to dispose of, the mini skip might be the ideal option. What size is known as a mini skip is different from company to company, determined by what sizes they have.
The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 yard container as their smallest option. Price is dependent on the actual size you order, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for domestic jobs including modest DIY projects and garden clean ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
What things can I put in my skip?
This is amongst the most common questions people have about hiring a skip. The most important thing to consider is that you can fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of waste that could come from garden work, building work and house clearances.
Some of the most frequent items that we find in our skips include dirt, wood, hedge trimmings, cabinets, sinks, and various household products.
There are some things that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This consists of any electrical objects (fridges, monitors or cookers for example), tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. They are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and so getting rid of them must adhere to an entirely different procedure to ensure they do not cause harm to the environment.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yard skip. The name stems from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes hired by builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are fantastic for a multitude of residential and commercial tasks. These are the biggest sizes that you can use for weighty builders waste including soil, stone and bricks.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
It usually is best if you can be there when anybody delivers anything to your property. That enables you to ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned just where you need it.
The same thing goes for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
When will my skip be delivered?
When your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We will normally offer a following day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (such as a highway), you will have to get a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
Due to several factors that could impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it arriving in a morning or afternoon slot.
What happens to the rubbish in the skip?
The items in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling centre. Here the rubbish will be sorted by machines and also by hand into various waste materials, such as soil, paper, stone and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
No, you cannot put old electronic waste items in a skip. This can include items like laptops or computers, microwaves, tumble dryers, refrigerators and televisions. Electronic items can’t be discarded in your skip because they can contain dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Sidmouth?
Since we provide a national skip hire service, we utilise a comprehensive network of verified companies. These vary from small local skip hire firms to nationwide waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental standards.
Am I able to have a skip which has a drop door?
Using a skip which has a drop down door can make loading rubbish into the skip so much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty materials like dirt or concrete, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading big bulky objects like pieces of furniture easier too.
Most skips can be provided with a drop down door, but this may sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a door is needed, and we will do our best to provide this.

We offer a UK wide skip hire and waste management service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Sidmouth, Honiton, South Molton, Bovey Tracey or another site in Devon, we are able to help.
What sizes do skips come in?
Skips come in a variety of sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small household jobs.
Next up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yd is a great option for loft clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more significant waste disposal task to handle, the builder’s skip may be the most suitable option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title implies, these represent the most common sizes used by builders for construction waste, like clay and hardcore. However they can just as well be used for household waste such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.
We can also supply 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. To get more information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
How much will skip hire in Sidmouth cost?
This depends on the size you want and whether you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the least expensive choice. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in business settings.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a massive skip used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These bins are predominantly for industrial use but can be used by residential clients as well. Having said that, you need a lot of room since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger compared to the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
As a result of the size, roro containers should only be hired for light materials such as plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not appropriate for getting rid of soil and bricks.
