Below are some of the typical questions we have received regarding our skip hire services.
Stapleford Skip Hire FAQs
What will happen to the waste when the skip is picked up?
The waste in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling station. Here the waste will be separated by machines and also by hand into different waste streams, like soil, cardboard, rubble and wood. Sorting the waste in this way helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is always to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Stapleford?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you wish to hire. Let us know if the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or public property (such as the road). After that, select the day you need the skip to be delivered. Check your order and make payment using our secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your skip to Stapleford on the day you have selected.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Stapleford, you will have several options to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, also known as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for small domestic clearances and DIY work.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most frequent sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also makes them well suited for household clear ups including bulky objects such as furniture and beds.
We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These sizes are only suitable for light materials, so they cannot be hired to get rid of soil or stone.
For more information regarding the different sizes available, including measurements, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
You don’t have to be home when your skip is being delivered, however it does help. Being there when your skip is being delivered means you can ensure the lorry can be given complete access and that your skip can be positioned exactly where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is being hired to a company premises, we will appreciate your help during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, if you can’t be available during delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask that you tell us when you place the order, and then we will organise things from there.
Will a Stapleford skip hire company deliver my skip?
To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work together with a wide range of local and national companies. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we can offer customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
How big is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest skip provided by skip firms and is great for smaller DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some companies offer you a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Is it ok to stack up waste in my skip?
It is important to not overload your skip, as you risk being told to remove excessive waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of what size you order, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as transporting an overloaded bin is dangerous, as materials could drop and result in injury or damage to other people.
To avoid this situation, please be sure to hire a size appropriate for your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full and you have more rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.
Can I get a skip that has a drop down door?
Using a skip with a drop door helps make filling rubbish into it so much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste materials like dirt or stone, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of big bulky items such as pieces of furniture a lot easier also.
The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop door, but it will sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a door is required, and we will do our very best to provide this.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can normally deliver skips to Stapleford the following working day when an order is placed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking system will provide you with a range of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you want the skip delivered asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
Am I allowed to throw away electrical items in the skip?
No, you can not dispose of old or unwanted electronic waste products in your skip. This can include such things as computers, hobs, tumble dryers, fridges and television sets. Electric objects can’t be disposed of in the skip because they can have dangerous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
Can I put all types of rubbish in my skip?
Before ordering your skip, it is essential to check that the type of rubbish you intend to dispose of is allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials must be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you may throw in your skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use your skip to discard building and construction rubbish, such as timber, soil, stone, metals and gravel.
Some examples of restricted items include electrical products, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore must be disposed of separately from general waste.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can typically keep a skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, you have the choice of offering a preferred collection date when making your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in many cases, it will be the following working day.
It might take a bit longer to collect your skip during busy periods, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to transport large volumes of waste. Mostly, these type of skips are used for commercial applications. Having said that, household clients can also order them. It is important to look at the space they take up, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be used for light-weight materials such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of soil and hardcore.
Do you deliver to other areas in Nottinghamshire?
We provide a national skip hire and recycling service using a network of verified and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Stapleford, Southwell, Bingham, Hucknall or another area in Nottinghamshire, we can assist.
What size is a builders skip?
The builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These will be the biggest skips that can be used to discard weighty construction waste materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or dirt.
The builder’s skip is perfect for a number of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning the garage, these big skips are often the most cost-effective choice available.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Stapleford?
In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you need your skip to be placed on land outside of your company or residence, you need to get permission from your local authority in Stapleford, which is known as a skip permit. If necessary, we would be happy to organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for the skip license, plus you should be aware before ordering that obtaining the permit will often take up to two working days.
How much will skip hire in Stapleford cost?
This depends on the skip size you need and whether you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the cheapest option. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.
