Stoke-on-Trent Skip Hire FAQs

What size is the mini skip?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to take on many jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.

Although most frequently chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can even tackle smaller commercial jobs.

Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Stoke-on-Trent?

If possible, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface. When you are carrying out a domestic task, then your driveway will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public land, you must get a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be placed on a street, grass verge or other public property in Stoke-on-Trent. If this is required, we will request the permit to be granted on your behalf. An extra fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.

Can you deliver skips across Staffordshire?

Absolutely. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we are able to supply skips to both residential and industrial customers across Staffordshire and anywhere else within the UK.

Where will the waste be taken to once the skip is collected?

The contents of the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre. Here the contents will be separated by machines and by hand into numerous waste materials, such as metal, paper, concrete and wood. Processing the waste in this way helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.

Can I dispose of all sorts of waste in the skip?

Before ordering your skip, it is essential to ensure that the sort of waste materials you need to discard is allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Waste types you can discard in your skip include home items like pieces of furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use a skip to get rid of building and demolition rubbish, such as old bricks, soil, rubble, metals and gravel.

Examples of prohibited items include electrical items, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from general waste.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is the most popular skip that is ordered throughout the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is perfect for most building and construction tasks, which is where the name originates from.

The 8 yard builder’s skip is the largest size that you can use for heavy waste materials such as garden soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.

Whatever the situation might be, tell us when you place your order, and we will make sure your directions are passed on to the lorry driver.

Is it ok to load up my skip above the top?

It is very important never to overload your skip, as you run the risk of being required to take out surplus waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of what size you hire, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, since transporting an overloaded container can be unsafe, as objects could drop and result in personal injury or damage to other people.

To avoid this issue, please be sure to order a skip size appropriate for your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full and you have additional waste to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

You can usually have the skip for as long as 14 days from your date of delivery. You can give a chosen collection date when you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can tell us after you have finished, and we will prepare the collection. Generally, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take a bit longer during busy periods.

Am I able to throw away electrical products in the skip?

Unfortunately not, as electronic items like old televisions, cookers, printers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects must be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

How much will skip hire in Stoke-on-Trent cost?

Our goal is to offer the cheapest skip hire service in Stoke-on-Trent. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip that you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have the skip located on the highway or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the extra expense of the skip permit.

What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large industrial scale skips that are used mainly within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for businesses that produce significant quantities of waste materials.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

Getting a skip with a drop door makes loading rubbish into it much easier. This is especially true with heavy materials like soil and rubble, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading large bulky items like furniture a lot easier too.

Most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, but this may sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when placing your booking if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to deliver this.

How many different skip sizes are available?

Skips are available in a number of different sizes to match various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is good for small residential projects.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a fantastic option for attic clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to sort out, a builder’s skip might be the best option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label suggests, these represent the most common sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, like soil and hardcore. But they can just as well be used for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.

We can also provide 10-16 yard containers and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
