St Neots Skip Hire FAQs

Am I able to put electrical products in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric goods need to be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This includes all electronic goods such as washing machines, monitors, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.

How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you manage a company in St Neots and need to dispose of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a fantastic option. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that can be hired.

As the name suggests, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, that are lifted using chains.

How do I order a skip?

This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you would like to hire. Let us know whether the skip is going to be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or local authority property (such as the road). Then, select the date you want the skip to be delivered. Check your order and make payment using our secure online payment system. That’s it! We will deliver your chosen skip to St Neots on the day you have selected.

Is it ok to stack up waste in my skip?

No, you are only allowed to fill up the skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste up above this line would make it dangerous to transport, and you may be asked to remove the extra waste before your skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to increase the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.

Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?

It is usually best if you can be available when anyone delivers anything to your house. That allows you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned just where you need it.

The same applies for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in St Neots?

To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in St Neots, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you which skip sizes we offer in your location and how much each size costs to hire. If your skip will be on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, this will give you sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, in the event you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just tell us when you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.

How quickly can you deliver a skip in St Neots?

When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the very next day. In some instances, we can even offer a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed as part of the order process.

Am I able to throw all types of waste in a skip?

This is among the most popular questions people have about skip hire. What is important to consider is that you may load your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are so many types of rubbish which will come from garden work, building work and home clearances.

Some of the most typical things that we pick up in our skips include garden soil, wood, hedge cuttings, cupboards, toilets, and various household objects.

However, there are some materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This can include any electronic goods (fridge freezers, televisions and washing machines for example), car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. These are all deemed hazardous waste, and so disposing of them needs to abide by an entirely different procedure to make sure they don’t result in harm to the environment.

How many different skip sizes are there?

We can offer a full-range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip great for small DIY projects and house clearances. A common option for larger sized jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard skip.

For St Neots companies which generate a large quantity of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

If you need some help deciding on which size skip you require, take a look at our useful skip size comparison.

What size is a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most commonly hired for construction and demolition projects. There are typically two sizes that may be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to dispose of substantial quantities of building and demolition materials, including soil, concrete and rock.

Even though they are labelled a builders skip, they can be used for a number of other household and commercial waste disposal tasks.

Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the road in St Neots?

If at all possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface area. When you are carrying out a domestic job, then the drive will be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, when neither is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public property, you have got to have a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be positioned on the street, grass verge or other public property in St Neots. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be issued for you. An extra charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

What happens to the waste in the skip?

The contents of your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer centre. Here the waste will be segregated by machinery and also by hand into different waste streams, like metal, paper, rubble and wood. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

In general, most skips can be provided with a drop-down door, depending on the size, availability and location. If you need a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip that has a drop door is mainly useful if choosing a big builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, because they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How much waste can a mini skip hold?

If you have a small quantity of waste to dispose of, a mini skip may be the best choice. What size is known as a mini skip differs from business to business, based on what sizes they have.

The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to have a 3 yard container as their smallest option. Cost is based on the specific size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are best for residential jobs including modest DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

Will you deliver to other areas in Cambridgeshire?

Certainly. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we can deliver skips to both household and business customers throughout Cambridgeshire and anywhere else in the UK.
