St Blazey Skip Hire FAQs
Can I load up the skip higher than level load mark?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it dangerous to transport, and you will have to empty any rubbish higher than the level load line. This means you cannot use sheets of timber, doors or some other object, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal responsibility to make sure that skips are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please be sure you select the appropriate size of skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you are unsure which size you need. We would be happy to help.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
We can provide a full range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip best for modest DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A common choice for larger sized jobs, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard skip.
For St Blazey businesses which produce a big quantity of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.
Should you need some help deciding which size skip you require, have a look at our helpful skip size comparison.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are perfect for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furniture and old baby toys to paving slabs and rubble. With a capacity of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make numerous visits to the local recycling centre.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a huge container that is used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These containers are predominantly for commercial use but can be used by household clients as well. However, you should have lots of space since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger in comparison to the typical skip you will see on the side of the road.
Due to the size, RORO skips should only be provided for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and rubble.
What can I put in my skip?
This is one of the most common questions people have about hiring a skip. The most important thing to consider is that you may fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of rubbish which will result from garden work, construction work and property clearances.
Among the most typical things that we see in skips include garden soil, wood, hedge trimmings, cabinets, sinks, and various other household objects.
There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. For example, any electrical goods (fridges, televisions and printers for example), car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all classed as hazardous waste, and disposing of them has to abide by a completely different process to ensure they do not result in harm to the environment.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
After you have finished filling your skip, we come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre either in or local to St Blazey where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, rubble, etc.).

Through a network of local and national skip companies, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business in St Blazey, Market Jew or Fowey, we have got it covered.

For those who are not likely to be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when placing your order. For example, you might want the skip to be positioned on a particular area of your drive. Or you might need to make sure the skip doesn’t block entry to your garage.
No matter what the case might be, provide the information when ordering, and we will make sure your directions are passed to the delivery driver.
What is classed as a builders skip?
The phrase builders skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The term originates from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are great for numerous types of domestic and industrial tasks. They are the biggest sizes which you can use for weighty builders waste like dirt, stone and bricks.
Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?
No, you cannot dispose of old or unwanted electronic waste items in a skip. This can include items like computers, cookers, washing machines, freezers and computer monitors. Electrical items can’t be thrown in a skip since they can contain dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in St Blazey?
This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a permit when it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if the skip is on your private property, such as a drive or within your company premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, so we can make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place your skip on private land, you will save some money.
Do all skips have a drop door?
For anyone who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is great for disposing of hefty building and demolition materials, as it can be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop down door, although these are typically more uncommon. This is because these sizes are typically small enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip which has a drop door is supplied.
What is the cost of skip hire in St Blazey?
The cost of getting a skip in St Blazey will depend on the size of skip you want. The cheapest option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you require a larger sized skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also increase if you need to have a skip on the road, as you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
How quick can you deliver a skip to St Blazey?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We can usually offer you a following day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, as to go on public property (for example a street), you will have to get a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
Due to many factors that may impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it turning up within a morning or afternoon slot.
How long can I hire a skip for?
You can in most cases keep your skip for up to 2 weeks from the delivery date. You may provide a chosen pick up day when you make your order. Otherwise, you can let us know once you have finished, and we will organise the collection. Usually, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer over hectic times.
