Southam Skip Hire FAQs

If I want a skip on a road in Southam, will I need to have a permit?

In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need the skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or house, you must obtain permission from your local council in Southam, which is called a skip permit. If required, we will be glad to arrange this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less issue to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for the skip permit, and you should know before booking that obtaining the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.

Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?

No, you are only allowed to load the skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste materials up over this line will make it unsafe to move, and you can be asked to get rid of the surplus waste before your skip can be collected. This includes using doors, 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.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods need to be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric goods including washing machines, televisions, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are big commercial size skips that are used primarily within the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for companies that generate large volumes of waste materials.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Southam?

To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work with a variety of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to offer customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.

Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?

No, you don’t have to be home when we are delivering the skip. As long as we are able to gain access to where you want it delivered, we will take care of it all.

If you are not going to be in, simply provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when placing your order. For instance, you might want the skip to be dropped on a particular part of the drive. Alternatively, you may want to be sure that the skip does not block entry to your garage.

Whatever the case may be, simply let us know when ordering, and then we will ensure your directions will be passed on to the delivery driver.

What can I put in the skip?

You may use your skip to dispose of many different waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and processing numerous items generated from building work, garden projects and household tidy-ups. Some examples of allowed waste types include:

  • Home furnishings
  • Tree cuttings
  • Soil
  • Stone and concrete
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Cabinets and units

The majority of materials are usually accepted, therefore whether you want to dispose of furniture, plastic materials, timber or old toys, we can usually take your waste away.

The quantity and materials you throw in the skip may vary based on the size skip you have hired. All skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you need to discard top soil and rubble, for example, the biggest size you would be allowed to use would be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

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

There are several materials that you will not be able to throw out in the skip. The main reason for this is that some goods include hazardous components which can cause damage to the environment. They can also be harmful to human health, therefore they have to be discarded separately under UK law.

Some of the products which are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC screens
  • Battery packs
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

What size skips do you deliver?

Skips come in a variety of sizes to match different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small domestic projects.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a fantastic choice for attic clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to undertake, the builder’s skip might be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title implies, these represent the most common sizes hired by builders for building waste, including clay and stone. However they can equally well be hired for household waste such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also deliver 10-16 cubic yard bins and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Is it possible to get a skip with a drop door?

Generally speaking, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop door, depending on size, availability and location. If you want a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip that has a drop door is mainly useful when you are hiring a large builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow waste 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.

Can you deliver to other areas in Warwickshire?

We offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service using a network of verified and fully licensed local partners. So whether you need skip hire in Southam, Kenilworth, Coleshill, Whitnash or another location in Warwickshire, we are able to help.

How long does it take to get a skip in Southam?

We will make sure your skip is delivered when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the following day.

Although we cannot guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

You should make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will in most cases incur a fee for the wasted trip.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip?

After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility in or local to Southam where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.

How long can I hire a skip for?

Generally, you can keep the skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you don’t need to hurry through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.

What is the size of a builders skip?

The term builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yard skip. The label originates from the fact that they are the most typical sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial containers are great for numerous types of residential and industrial tasks. They are the largest skip sizes which can be used for heavy builders waste such as top soil, rubble and gravel.

What size is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some household rubbish, the mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to take on numerous jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be positioned on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.

Although most commonly hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.

Other areas covered include Kenilworth, Coleshill, Whitnash, Atherstone, Bedworth, Rugby, Nuneaton and Alcester.
