St Just Skip Hire FAQs
What is a builders skip?
The phrase builders skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yd skip. The name originates from the fact that these are the most popular sizes used by general builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are great for a wide variety of household and commercial jobs. They are the biggest sizes that can be used for hefty builders waste including garden soil, stone and bricks.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact skip provided by skip firms and is great for small DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some companies offer you a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
How long will it take to get a skip in St Just?
When you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the very next day. Sometimes, we can even provide a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed during the order process.
What size skips can have a drop down door?
For anyone who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is designed for disposing of heavy building and construction waste materials, as it can be walked into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop door, although they are less common. Simply because these sizes are generally low enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip that has a drop door is delivered.
Can I get rid of electrical items in my skip?
No, you can not dispose of old or broken electrical waste products in a skip. This can include things such as computers, microwaves, tumble dryers, freezers and televisions. Electronic items can’t be disposed of in the skip as they can have dangerous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to ordering a skip in St Just, you have various sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for small household clearances and DIY tasks.
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 cubic yards. They are the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their large capacity also makes them well suited for house clear ups involving large items like pieces of furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people with even bigger waste disposal needs. These skips are only suited to lightweight waste materials, so they can not be used to dispose of soil or rubble.
For further information regarding the different sizes offered, such as dimensions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
Can I fill my skip higher than the top?
You should not load a skip past the level load mark. When you fill it over the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be secure to transport, and you might be asked to take off the extra rubbish prior to it being collected.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in St Just?
This depends on where the skip will be located. You will only need a permit if it is placed on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if your skip is on your private property, like a drive or inside your company premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place the skip on private property, you will save a few pounds.
How can I order a skip?
Hiring a skip in St Just through us is incredibly easy. Choose the skip size you need and then input a handful of details about when and where you would like your skip delivered. Then you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then arrange to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is best to be in at the time it is delivered. You can then make sure the lorry has total access and that the skip is positioned exactly where you want it. The same is true when you have a skip delivered to company property, especially when gates restrict access.
Having said that, if this is not feasible, you don’t have to stress. Simply let us know when you are placing your booking, and we will take care of the rest.
Am I allowed to dispose of all types of waste in my skip?
You may use a skip to get rid of lots of different waste types. We are experienced in collecting and handling a wide variety of items generated from construction work, garden landscaping and home tidy-ups. A few examples of permitted waste types include:
- Home furniture
- Garden cuttings
- Bricks and rubble
- Bathroom sinks
- Cabinets and units
Most materials will be accepted, and so whether you would like to throw out metals, plastics, timber or unwanted toys, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The volume and items you put in the skip will vary according to which size skip you have hired. All skips have a weight limit for safety purposes. So if you need to dispose of soil and gravel, as an example, the largest size container you will be able to hire will be the 8 cubic yard skip.
What sort of materials am I not allowed to put in a skip?
There are a few materials which you are not permitted to dispose of in your skip. The reason for this is that these goods incorporate hazardous elements that may damage the environment. They may also be hazardous to human health, therefore they must be disposed of separately under UK legislation.
A few of the things that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- Computer screens
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
