Southwell Skip Hire FAQs
How long can I keep the skip for?
Normally, you can have your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t have to hurry through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is full prior to the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large commercial scale skips used primarily in the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for organisations that produce significant volumes of waste.
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot put old or broken electronic waste items in your skip. This can include things like printers, cookers, washing machines, freezers and computer monitors. Electronic products can’t be thrown in a skip as they can contain hazardous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
What is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is probably the most popular skip which is used in the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is great for most building work, which is where the name stems from.
The 8 yd builders skip will be the largest option which can be used for hefty materials like garden soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.
How do you order a skip online?
Hiring a skip in Southwell with us is incredibly straightforward. Choose the skip size you require and then input a few details about where and when you would like the skip delivered. You can then pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and arrange to get your skip delivered to you.
How long will it take to get a skip in Southwell?
When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the next day. In some instances, we will even provide a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed as part of the order process.
Am I allowed to fill up my skip above the level load line?
You should not fill a skip beyond the level load mark. When you load it over the tip of this level, it means your skip is not safe to move, and you might be asked to remove the extra rubbish before it can be picked up.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Southwell?
A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in Southwell. We employ a network of both regional and national businesses to enable us to offer our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are comprehensively assessed to make certain they meet the high expectations we require when it comes to customer service, cost and environmental performance.
Will my skip come with a drop down door?
The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, which makes them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the container, especially with heavy materials, such as soil and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, such as household furniture.
What sort of rubbish am I allowed to put in a skip?
You are able to put a wide array of waste types into the skip. This includes wood, ceramic tiles, metal or concrete from a household clearance. Tree and bush clippings, dirt and rock from garden tasks are permitted as well. Cupboards and worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be thrown in the skip.
However, there are things that you cannot put in a skip due to the potential environmental or health risk they can cause.
You can’t get rid of your fridge, laptop or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things contain hazardous components in one kind or another. They need to be disposed of separately from your general waste.
Should you require hazardous waste removal, we may be able to arrange a separate collection for this material. Please contact us for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
Where does my waste be taken to when the skip is collected?
The contents of your skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer centre. Here the contents will be segregated by machinery and by hand into different waste streams, including metal, paper, stone and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Southwell?
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) will be the lowest priced option. The most costly and largest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in business settings.

Do I need to be there when the skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t have to be at home when the skip is being delivered, however it does help. Being home whenever the skip is delivered means you can ensure the lorry can be given full access and that your skip is placed precisely where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is being delivered to a company premises, we will appreciate your support during the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, in the event you can’t be around at the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you book your order, and then we will arrange things from there.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Southwell, you have several options to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard container, also known as the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is excellent for small home clearances and DIY jobs.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also means they are ideal for house clear ups including bulky items such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These containers are only appropriate for light waste, so they can not be hired to get rid of soil or concrete.
To get more details about the various sizes available, including dimensions, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
Can you deliver to other areas in Nottinghamshire?
Certainly, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skips to locations throughout Nottinghamshire, such as Southwell, Worksop, Eastwood and Market Warsop. So wherever you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
How big is the mini skip?
When you have a small amount of waste to dispose of, a mini skip might be the best choice. What size is identified as a mini skip differs from business to business, depending on what sizes they provide.
The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to have a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. Cost depends on the actual size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for residential jobs like modest DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Southwell?
In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like the skip to be situated on land outside of your business or residence, you will need to receive authorisation from your local authority in Southwell, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we would be glad to arrange this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the skip license, plus you should be aware before placing your order that obtaining the permit will often take up to two working days.
