Stafford Skip Hire FAQs
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into various waste types, including wood, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
What is the cost of skip hire in Stafford?
Our aim is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Stafford. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip that you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have the skip located on the road or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the additional cost of the skip permit.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is the most common skip that is ordered throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builder’s skip is perfect for most building and demolition jobs, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 yd builders skip is the biggest size which you can use for hefty waste such as dirt, concrete, stone and rubble.
How large is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a large container used to get rid of large quantities of waste. These skips are predominantly for commercial use but can be used by residential customers as well. However, you should have a good amount of space since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger than the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.
As a result of the size, RORO containers can only be provided for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suited to disposing of concrete and rubble.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Stafford?
In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need your skip to be situated on land outside of your company or house, you have got to receive permission from your local council in Stafford, which is called a permit. If necessary, we will be glad to arrange this for you, and so it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for your permit, and you should be aware before placing your order that getting the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.
How do you hire a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you want to hire. Let us know if the skip will be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or local authority property (such as the street). After that, select the date you would like your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Stafford on the date you have chosen.
Will you deliver to other areas in Staffordshire?
Yes, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skip sizes to areas throughout Staffordshire, including Stafford, Kidsgrove, Lichfield and Uttoxeter. So wherever you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Can I put electrical products in the skip?
No, you cannot throw old or unwanted electrical waste items in your skip. This can include things like computers, hobs, dishwashers, freezers and monitors. Electronic objects can’t be discarded in the skip because they can contain hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Typically, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, depending on the size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Having a skip with a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini and midi skips, because they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, that will provide you with plenty of time to load your skip. However, if you do need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, in the event you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just tell us when you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip offered by skip firms and is great for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
What waste can I put in a skip?
You are able to put a wide array of waste types in the skip. This includes timber, ceramic tiles, plastics or bricks from a household clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, dirt and stone from garden work is permitted also. Cupboards and worktops from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be thrown in your skip.
There are, however, some materials that you are not allowed to put in a skip a result of the potential ecological or health risk they can cause.
You can’t get rid of your freezer, television or your old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things contain hazardous components in one form or another. They need to be discarded separately from general rubbish.
If you require hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to schedule a separate collection for this waste. Feel free to contact us for further details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Stafford. We utilize a network of both local and national providers to enable us to provide our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These companies are comprehensively assessed to make sure they meet the high principles we demand in terms of service, cost and environmental performance.
Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be at home at the time the skip is delivered. You can then be sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip will be situated precisely where you need it. The same is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company premises, especially when gates limit access.
Having said that, if that is not feasible, you don’t need to worry. Just let us know when making your booking, and we will take care of the rest.
What size skips do you offer?
Skips are available in a number of different sizes to match different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small household jobs.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great option for loft clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more significant waste disposal task to undertake, the builder’s skip could be the most suitable choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label suggests, these are the most common sizes ordered by builders for building waste, including clay and hardcore. However they can just as well be used for household rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We also supply 10-16 yard containers and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more information about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
How long does it take to get a skip in Stafford?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We will usually offer you a following day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, as to go on public property (for example a street), you will need to obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of many factors that may impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it to be delivered in a AM or PM slot.
Is it okay to load the skip above level load mark?
It is essential to never overfill the skip. You must not pass the level load mark indicated along the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it is very unsafe to transport. Which means that if you overfill your skip, you could be required to take away the excess rubbish. Regardless of how secure you think the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This is hazardous and is prohibited.
