St Columb Major Skip Hire FAQs

Do you deliver skips across Cornwall?

Yes. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we are able to supply skips to residential and commercial customers across Cornwall and elsewhere in the UK.

Am I allowed to throw away electrical items in my skip?

Electrical objects including televisions, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore should not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric products have to be segregated from other materials. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly way.

How long will it take to get a skip in St Columb Major?

Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a day that best suits you. We can normally give you a following day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, since to go on public property (such as a road), you need to obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to several factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it arriving within a AM or PM slot.

Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the street in St Columb Major?

Generally, it is possible to have a skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to do this, you must get consent from your local authority in St Columb Major, which is known as a skip permit. We will order this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The council do charge a fee for the license, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

What size skips do you offer?

Skips are offered in a number of sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small residential projects.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a fantastic choice for shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to take on, the builder’s skip might be the smartest choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label suggests, these are the most frequent sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, such as clay and hardcore. However they can just as well be hired for domestic waste such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also supply 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Can I throw all sorts of waste in a skip?

A skip can be used to get rid of a variety of types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and processing lots of items from building jobs, garden landscaping and property clearances. A few examples of allowed waste products include:

  • Furniture
  • Tree cuttings
  • Garden soil
  • Stone
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Cabinets and units

Many different materials are usually permitted, and so whether you would like to throw out metals, plastic materials, wood or textiles, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The volume and waste types you throw in the skip may vary based on which size skip you have chosen. All skips do have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you want to dispose of top soil and concrete, for example, the biggest size you would be permitted to use is the 8 yard builders skip.

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

There are several waste items you will not be permitted to throw out in your skip. The main reason for this is that some items contain hazardous materials which can damage the environment. They may also be hazardous to human health, therefore they need to be disposed of separately within UK law.

A few examples of the products which are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

What is the cost of skip hire in St Columb Major?

Our goal is to give you the cheapest skip hire service in St Columb Major. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have the skip placed on the road or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the added cost of a skip permit.

Do I need to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?

No, you don’t have to be at home when we are delivering your skip. Providing we can access where you want it located, we can manage it all.

In the event you are not likely to be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when booking the order. For example, you might want the skip to be positioned on a particular area of your drive. Or you might want to ensure the skip doesn’t obstruct use of your garage.

No matter what the case may be, provide the information when ordering, and then we will make sure your directions are passed to the lorry driver.

Do you use local skip hire companies in St Columb Major?

A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in St Columb Major. We work with a network of both regional and nationwide businesses to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully vetted to ensure they satisfy the high principles we demand in terms of service, cost and environmental performance.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

The mini skip will be the smallest skip offered by skip firms and is good for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip firms offer a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

What is the size of a builders skip?

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

These big containers are perfect for a multitude of residential and commercial tasks. These are the biggest skip sizes which you can use for heavy builders waste including dirt, rubble and gravel.

What skip sizes will have a drop door?

The majority of skips can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the bin, especially with weighty materials, like garden soil and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky items, like household furniture.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can typically hire the skip for up to 2 weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection is as convenient as possible, there is the option of offering a preferred collection day when you make your order.

Otherwise, simply let us know when you have finished with your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in many cases, it will be the next working day.

It can take a little while longer to collect your skip over busy times, however we will always try to come as quickly as possible.

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you manage a business in St Columb Major and need to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a great choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that are available.

As the name suggests, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, that are picked up by using chains.

Is it ok to stack up waste in my skip?

It is very important never to overfill your skip, as you run the risk of being told to take out excessive waste before it can be picked up. No matter what size you order, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, as transporting an overloaded bin is dangerous, as waste could drop and cause personal injury or damage to others.

To avoid this situation, please be sure to order a size suitable for your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have more waste to get rid of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.

How can I hire a skip?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you would like to hire. Tell us if the skip shall be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (like the road). Then, select the date you would like the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to St Columb Major on the date you have chosen.

Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?

Once 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 sorted into various waste streams, including wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Other areas covered include Callington, Hayle, Helston, Torpoint, St Just, Penzance, Bude and Lostwithiel.
