Sleaford Skip Hire FAQs
Am I able to have a skip with a drop down door?
Generally, most skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, depending on skip size, availability and location. If you want a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Having a skip that has a drop door is primarily helpful if hiring a big builder’s skip, as it enables you to wheelbarrow waste materials directly into the skip. This is not so important for mini skips, because they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
The name builders skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. They are the largest skips that can be hired to dispose of substantial building and construction waste such as rock, bricks, rubble or garden soil.
The builder’s skip is perfect for a wide array of tasks. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing the loft, these big skips are usually the most affordable option available.
What will happen to the waste once the skip is collected?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into various waste streams, which includes wood, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Is it ok to load my skip above the level load line?
It is important not to overload a skip, as you run the risk of being required to take off surplus waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of the size you order, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, since transporting an overloaded skip can be hazardous, as waste could fall and lead to personal injury or damage to other people.
To avoid this problem, please be sure you order a size appropriate for your waste removal needs. If your skip is full but you have extra rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.

If I want a skip on the road in Sleaford, will I need to get a permit?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or home, you will have to secure authorisation from your local authority in Sleaford, which is called a permit. If required, we would be happy to arrange this for you, therefore it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the permit, and you should know before placing your order that obtaining the licence will often take up to two working days.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods must be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electric items including tumble dryers, TVs, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.
How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household waste, a mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to handle numerous tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be placed on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.
Although most often chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.
Will you deliver to other areas in Lincolnshire?
Absolutely. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we can supply skips to both domestic and industrial customers throughout Lincolnshire and anywhere else within the UK.
What sort of waste can you dispose of in a skip?
This is one of the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. What is important to consider is that you may fill up your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of rubbish which can result from garden projects, building work and household clearances.
Some of the most frequent things that we find in skips include dirt, timber, bush trimmings, kitchen units, toilets, as well as other household products.
There are also some things that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This can include any electrical goods (fridges and freezers, TVs or computers for example), tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and therefore getting rid of them has to abide by a completely different process to ensure they don’t result in harm to the environment.

We have created our online booking process with speed and simplicity at its core.

Then you can make payment with our secure payment system, and we’ll send you an email to verify the transaction as soon as your order is done!
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, this gives you sufficient time to fill your skip. However, if you need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, should you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your pick up. Just tell us when you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you run a business in Sleaford and need to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container could be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers that are available.
As the name suggests, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to standard skips, that are picked up by using chains.
Will a Sleaford skip hire company deliver my skip?
We use a network of both regional and national skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Sleaford and the rest of the UK. All of our partner businesses are verified and evaluated to ensure they satisfy our standards for cost, service, recycling and reliability.
When will my skip be delivered?
If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. In some cases, we will even provide a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed when going through the online order process.
Do I have to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be in at the time it is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly if gates limit access.
However, if this isn’t feasible, you don’t have to stress. Just tell us when you are making your booking, and we will take care of the rest.
