Spalding Skip Hire FAQs
Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?
The vast majority of skips can be delivered with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.
A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the container, particularly with weighty materials, like soil and bricks, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load large and bulky objects, such as furniture.
What kinds of waste am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?
This is one of the most frequent questions people have about skip hire. The main thing to remember is that you may load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of waste which can result from garden projects, construction work and home clearances.
Some of the most frequent things that we find in our skips include dirt, timber, hedge cuttings, kitchen cabinets, sinks, as well as other household objects.
There are some materials that you are not allowed to put in your skip. For example, any electrical objects (tumble dryers, TVs or computers for example), old tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them has to follow a completely different process to make sure they don’t cause damage to the environment.
Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Spalding?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or home, you have got to secure authorisation from your local authority in Spalding, which is known as a permit. If required, we would be happy to organise this for you, and so it’s one less point to think about. The council will charge a fee for the skip permit, plus you should know before placing your order that getting the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
What are the different skip sizes available?
Skips are offered in a wide range of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is great for small household projects.
Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold roughly 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a great option for loft clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to sort out, the builder’s skip may be the smartest choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title suggests, these represent the most common sizes ordered by builders for building waste, such as soil and hardcore. However they can equally well be used for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or bathroom suites.
We can also deliver 10-16 cubic yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
Will you deliver skips across Lincolnshire?

By utilising a network of local and national skip businesses, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business in Spalding, Winterton or North Hykeham, we have got you covered.
Do I have to be there whenever the skip is delivered?
No, you do not need to be home when we deliver the skip. As long as we can access where you need it delivered, we are able to manage everything.
In the event you will not be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery instructions when booking your order. For instance, you may prefer the skip to be located on a particular area of your property. Or you may want to ensure the skip doesn’t obstruct access to your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, let us know when you place your order, and then we will make sure your instructions are passed on to the delivery driver.
Can I load my skip above the top?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will then have to empty any items over the level load line. This also means you can not make use of sheets of wood, doors or some other item, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal obligation to make sure that containers aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure you hire the correct size of skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you are not sure which size you need. We would be glad to help.
How fast can you deliver a skip to Spalding?
We can usually supply skips to Spalding the next working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking program offers you a range of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you need the skip delivered ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
How large is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small containers are great for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and broken baby toys to paving slabs and garden soil. With a capacity of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip will save you having to make several journeys to your local recycling centre.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you have a company in Spalding and want to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container could be a perfect option. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that are available.
As the name indicates, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to regular skips, which are picked up using chains.

What is classed as being a builders skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often hired for building and construction work. There are generally two sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to get rid of large amounts of construction and demolition waste, including soil, concrete and stone.
Although branded a builder’s skip, these can be used for a number of other household and business waste disposal jobs.
What is the cost of skip hire in Spalding?
The cost of hiring a skip in Spalding is determined by the size of skip you require. The least expensive option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you want a bigger skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you want to have a skip on the highway, because you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
What happens to the waste?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into the various waste streams, like wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in the skip?
Electrical items such as TVs, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore can not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic goods need to be separated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
You can normally have your skip for up to 14 days from your date of delivery. You can provide a preferred collection day at the time you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us once you have finished with the skip, and then we will plan your collection. Normally, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer over busy periods.
