Stone Skip Hire FAQs
How do I order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip will be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (like the road). After that, pick the date you need your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Stone on the date you have selected.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip delivered by skip companies and is perfect for small DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some firms offer you a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the price of 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 will not make a difference.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Stone?
A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in Stone. We employ a network of both local and nationwide businesses to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are assessed to be sure they satisfy the high standards we require regarding customer service, price and environmental performance.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will make sure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we can’t guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You should make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will most likely incur a charge for the wasted trip.
Am I allowed to stack up the waste in my skip?
It is very important not to overload a skip, as you run the risk of being required to take off excess waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of the size you hire, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, since transporting an overloaded container can be hazardous, as materials could drop and result in injuries or damage to others.
To prevent this situation, please be sure you order a skip size suited to your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have more waste to get rid of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Stone?
Generally, it will be possible to have your skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to do this, you have got to have approval from the local authority in Stone, which is called a skip permit. We are able to organise this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for your license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
What is a builders skip?
The term builders skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yd skip. The name comes from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes that are ordered by builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are ideal for numerous residential and business projects. These are the biggest sizes that can be used for weighty builders waste like top soil, rubble and concrete.
Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?
No, you cannot put old or broken electrical waste items in a skip. This includes things like printers, microwaves, dishwashers, refrigerators and computer monitors. These products can’t be disposed of in a skip as they can include dangerous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.
What different sizes do skips come in?
Our company offers a whole range of skip sizes to domestic and business customers all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Stone?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Stone, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you the sizes we provide in your area and how much each size costs to order. If the skip is going to be on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.
What waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
Before you hire your skip, it is essential to make sure that the sort of rubbish you want to discard is allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials have to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types you may put in a skip include household items like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use your skip to throw out building and construction waste, including old bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Some examples of prohibited items include things like electrical items, tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently must be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
Will you deliver skips across Staffordshire?
As well as delivering skips and containers to Stone, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Staffordshire. Through a network of regional and national skip hire and recycling companies, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business in Stone, Fazeley or Lichfield, we have got it covered.
Will the skip come with a drop down door?
The vast majority of containers can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the skip, especially with weighty materials, like garden soil and concrete, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, like pieces of furniture.
Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be in at the time it is delivered. You can then be sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip is located precisely where you want it. This also is true if you have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly when gates restrict access.
On the other hand, when this isn’t possible, you don’t have to stress. Simply let us know when you are placing your booking, and then we will handle the rest.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container used to get rid of significant amounts of waste materials. Mostly, these skips are used for industrial purposes. However, household clients can also use them. It is important to consider the area they occupy, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be utilised for lightweight waste like plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and stone.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
Our standard hire period will be a fortnight from the delivery date. Having said that, at the time you book the skip, you can provide a pick up date that will work for you. Of course, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if your skip is full sooner than anticipated, contact us, and we will get it collected at the earliest opportunity.
We will usually complete collections within 48 hours. But, it is important to understand that this is not always the case at busier periods. Once collected, your skip will be taken to your local waste transfer facility, where it will be processed and sorted.
What will happen to the waste in the skip?
After you have finished filling up your skip, we come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste recycling centre in or local to Stone where we separate the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
