Below are a few of the common questions we receive about our skip hire service.

Stockbridge Skip Hire FAQs

Can I throw away electronic products in my skip?

No, you cannot dispose of old electrical waste products in your skip. This includes things such as computers, hobs, dishwashers, refrigerators and monitors. These objects can’t be thrown in the skip since they can include hazardous materials and components.

Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

Nearly all skip sizes can be delivered with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.

Having a skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the skip, especially with heavy materials, like garden soil and gravel, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, like pieces of furniture.

Am I allowed to fill my skip above level load line?

Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this makes it hazardous to transport, and you will then be asked to empty any contents above the level load line. This also means you are not allowed to use sheets of timber, doors or some other object, as this will increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal obligation to ensure that containers are not overfilled or overweight before moving them.

Please be sure to hire the correct size of skip for your requirements and get in touch if you are not sure which size is best. We will be happy to help.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, this provides you with sufficient time to fill up the skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, should you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just tell us when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.

What will happen to the rubbish when the skip is picked up?

The rubbish in the skip will be taken to the local waste recycling centre. Here the waste will be sorted by machines and also by hand into different waste streams, including soil, paper, stone and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.

What is the cost of skip hire in Stockbridge?

To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Stockbridge, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display which sizes we offer in your area and how much each size will cost you to order. If the skip is going on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.

What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial industrial size skips that are used predominantly within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for businesses that generate large amounts of waste materials.

What types of waste materials can I put in a skip?

Your skip can be hired to dispose of many different types of waste. We are experienced in collecting and processing lots of items produced from building jobs, garden projects and house clearances. A few examples of allowed waste types include things like:

  • Home furnishings
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Soil
  • Stone and concrete
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Cabinets and units

Many different waste materials are allowed, therefore whether you want to dispose of furniture, plastics, wood or old toys, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The quantity and materials you throw in the skip can vary according to which size skip you have ordered. Skips have a weight limit for safety purposes. So to be able to discard top soil and rubble, as an example, the biggest size you will be allowed to hire would be the 8 cubic yard skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?

There are some materials which you will not be permitted to dispose of in the skip. The main reason for this is that some items contain hazardous components which could damage the environment. They could also be harmful to human health, so they must be disposed of separately within UK law.

A few examples of the products which are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer screens
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Do you deliver to other areas in Hampshire?

We offer a national skip hire and recycling service through a network of approved and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you would like skip hire in Stockbridge, Portsmouth, Farnborough, Eastleigh or another site in Hampshire, we are able to assist.

How much waste will the mini skip hold?

The mini skip will be the most compact size provided by skip firms and is good for smaller DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms will offer a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

What sizes do skips come in?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Stockbridge, you have several sizes to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is excellent for small home clearances and DIY jobs.

The next size available 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, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most popular sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also means they are ideal for household clear ups including bulky items like furniture and beds.

We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for those with even larger waste disposal needs. These containers are only suited to lightweight waste materials, so they can’t be hired to get rid of soil or rubble.

For additional information regarding the various sizes available, such as dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Stockbridge?

If at all possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface area. For anyone who is doing a residential job, then the driveway is going to be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public land, you will need to get a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be placed on the street, grass verge as well as other public property in Stockbridge. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be issued for you. An additional cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.

Do I need to stay in when the skip is delivered?

It is always best if you can be in when anyone delivers anything to your home. That allows you to ensure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be dropped exactly where you want it.

The same thing applies if you have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.

However, if it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

How can I order a skip online?

This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us if the skip shall be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on council property (such as the street). Next, pick the date you would like your skip to get delivered. Check your order and then make payment using our secure online payment platform. That is it! We will deliver your skip to Stockbridge on the day you have chosen.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The term stems from the fact that they are the most common sizes that are ordered by builders and tradespeople.

These substantial containers are fantastic for a multitude of domestic and commercial projects. They are the biggest skips that you can use for hefty builders waste including top soil, stone and bricks.

Who will deliver my skip?

As we provide a national skip hire service, we use a comprehensive network of verified businesses. These can range from small local skip hire businesses to national waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental principles.

How quick can you deliver a skip in Stockbridge?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We can typically offer a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, as to go on public property (for example a street), you need to gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.

As a result of numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it arriving in a AM or PM slot.

Other areas covered include Portsmouth, Farnborough, Eastleigh, Whitchurch, Bordon, Romsey, Alton and Bishop’s Waltham.
