Somerton Skip Hire FAQs
What will happen to the waste in the skip?
After you have finished with your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility in or local to Somerton where we will separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
What size is the mini skip?
If you are looking for a cheap skip to get rid of some household waste, the mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to deal with many jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be located on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.
Although most often chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are predominantly for commercial use but can be used by residential clients as well. However, you should have a good amount of room as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger compared to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.
As a result of the size, these skips can only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and rubble.
Is it possible to have a skip which has a drop door?
Generally, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop-down door, depending on size, availability and area. If you require a drop door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful if you are hiring a big builder’s skip, because it allows you to wheelbarrow waste materials directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, as they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Somerton?
The price of hiring a skip in Somerton depends on the size of skip you require. The least expensive skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you want a larger skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you need to have a skip placed on the road, since you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These are the largest skips that can be used to dispose of substantial building waste such as stone, concrete, gravel or dirt.
A builder’s skip is ideal for a variety of jobs. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning the loft space, these large containers are usually the most cost-effective option available.
Can I get rid of electronic products in my skip?
Electronic objects including tv sets, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste type and so can not be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic goods need to be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
Do I need to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t have to be home when your skip is going to be delivered, however it can help. Being in when the skip arrives means you can make sure the delivery driver is given full access and that your skip is placed exactly where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is hired to company property, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, if you can’t be available at the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place your order, and then we will arrange things from there.
Can I stack up waste in my skip?
You must not fill up the skip past the level load mark. When you fill it up over the tip of this mark, it means that your skip will not be secure to transport, and you can be asked to remove any extra rubbish before it can be picked up.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
You can usually have your skip for as many as two weeks from your delivery date. You can give a chosen pick up day when you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us when you have finished with the skip, and then we will plan the collection. Normally, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer over hectic times.
If I require a skip on the road in Somerton, will I need to get a permit?
Generally, it is possible to have the skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to do this, you have got to have approval from your local authority in Somerton, which is called a skip permit. We will order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for your license, and it may sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.
How do I hire a skip?
Hiring a skip in Somerton with us is incredibly straightforward. Pick the skip size you want and then input a few details about where and when you need the skip delivered. You then pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then schedule to get your skip delivered to you.
Am I allowed to put all types of rubbish in a skip?
You can use a skip to discard many different waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and processing a wide variety of items from building work, garden projects and home clearances. Examples of permitted waste materials include:
- Home furniture
- Hedge cuttings
- Garden soil
- Concrete and bricks
- Bathroom toilets and sinks
- Cabinets and units
Most waste materials are usually accepted, therefore whether you would like to throw out metals, plastic materials, timber or unwanted toys, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The volume and materials you throw in your skip will vary depending on which size skip you hired. All skips have a weight limit for safety reasons. So to be able to dispose of soil and gravel, for example, the largest size you would be allowed to use would be the 8 yard builders skip.
What kind of materials am I not allowed to put in my skip?
There are a few waste items which you will not be permitted to dispose of in the skip. The reason for this is that some items include hazardous components which can be damaging to the environment. They may also be dangerous to human health, and so they need to be discarded separately under UK legislation.
Some examples of the products that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas canisters
- PC monitors
- Battery packs
- Chemical substances

How long does it take to get a skip in Somerton?
We will ensure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
It is important to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted trip.
