Stamford Skip Hire FAQs
What can I put in the skip?
This is one of the most popular questions people have about skip hire. The main thing to keep in mind is that you may fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of waste which will result from garden projects, construction work and household clearances.
Some of the most common things that we collect in our skips include soil, wood, tree trimmings, cupboards, bathroom suites, and other household objects.
There are some items that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This consists of any electrical goods (refrigerators, televisions and cookers for example), tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all considered hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them must comply with an entirely different process to make sure they do not result in damage to the environment.
What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?
The roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a large skip used to get rid of large amounts of waste. These skips are mainly for commercial use but can be used by domestic customers also. Having said that, you should have a good amount of space because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger in comparison to the average skip you will see on the roadside.
Due to the size, roro skips should only be used for light materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of soil and rubble.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Stamford, you have several options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard skip, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for modest domestic clearances and DIY jobs.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 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 common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also means they are great for house clear ups including large items such as furniture and beds.
We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for anyone with even larger waste disposal requirements. These containers are only suited to lightweight materials, so they can not be hired to dispose of soil or stone.
For additional details about the different skip sizes offered, such as proportions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
How much waste will the mini skip hold?
When you have a small amount of waste to get rid of, a mini skip may be the best choice. What size is referred to as a mini skip varies from company to company, based on what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is probably the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to have a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. Price is dependent on the specific size you order, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for residential jobs including small DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you need it put on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?
The builder’s skip is the most frequent skip that is used in the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builder’s skip is perfect for most building and demolition projects, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip will be the biggest size that you can use for heavy waste materials like dirt, concrete, rock and rubble.
Will a skip hire company from Stamford deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both regional and national skip hire companies to supply skips to our customers in Stamford and the rest of the country. Each of our partner businesses are verified and tested to ensure they meet our expectations for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.
How do you order a skip online?
Ordering a skip in Stamford with us is incredibly easy. Decide on the skip size you will need and then enter a handful of details about where and when you need the skip delivered. You then pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then arrange to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
Can I stack up waste in my skip?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it hazardous to transport, and you will have to empty any items over the level load mark. This also means you can not use sheets of timber, doors or some other object, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal obligation to ensure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure you order the appropriate size of skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you’re unsure which size you need. We will be happy to help.
Where does my waste go when the skip is collected?
The items in your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer centre. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machines and also by hand into numerous waste materials, such as metal, cardboard, stone and timber. Processing the waste in this way helps to maximise the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Stamford?
This will depend on the size you require and if you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the lowest priced choice. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in industrial settings.

Do I have to be home whenever the skip is delivered?
You don’t really need to be at your property when your skip will be delivered, but it can help. Being there when the skip is due for delivery means you can make sure the lorry driver is given complete access and that the skip is positioned precisely where you need it. Likewise, if your skip is delivered to business property, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, if you can’t be available for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask that you tell us when you book your order, and we will organise everything from there.
Will my skip come with a drop door?
Using a skip that has a drop down door will make loading rubbish into the skip much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy materials like soil or hardcore, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make throwing away large bulky objects such as pieces of furniture a lot easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, although this may sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when making your booking if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.
Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Stamford?
This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a permit if it is put on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip will be on your private property, like a drive or within your company premises.
If you need to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on private land, it will save you a few pounds.
Do you deliver to other areas in Lincolnshire?
We provide a nationwide skip hire service by using a network of approved and fully licensed local companies. So whether you need skip hire in Stamford, Grimsby, Horncastle, Louth or any other location in Lincolnshire, we are able to assist.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will make sure your skip is provided when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our very best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
It is important to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will normally incur a charge for the wasted trip.
Am I able to throw electronic products in the skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric goods have to be kept separate from general waste to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric items including tumble dryers, monitors, kettles, laptops and even hair straighteners.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can generally keep a skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection is as convenient as possible, you have the choice of offering a preferred collection date when making your order.
Otherwise, simply tell us when you have finished loading up the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It may take a little longer to collect your skip over busy periods, however we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.
Other areas covered include Grimsby, Horncastle, Louth, Sleaford, Crowle, Heckington, Mablethorpe and Grantham.
