Stalbridge Skip Hire FAQs

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Stalbridge, you have numerous sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is great for small household clearances and DIY work.

The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most popular sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also means they are perfect for house tidy ups involving bulky objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.

We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even larger waste disposal needs. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they can not be used to dispose of garden soil or concrete.

What happens to the waste in the skip?

After you have finished filling up your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste recycling station either in or local to Stalbridge where we sort the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

Am I able to put electronic products in the skip?

Electrical objects like television sets, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so should not be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric items have to be separated from other rubbish. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

Typically, almost all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, depending on the size, availability and location. If you require a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, as it allows you to wheelbarrow waste materials directly into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini and midi skips, since they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. Cost depends on the actual size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are good for residential work including small DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

Having said that, domestic customers can also hire them. It is important to take into account the space they occupy, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be hired for light-weight waste such as paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of soil and rubble.

Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for many other household and business waste disposal jobs.
