Stonehouse Skip Hire FAQs
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We will typically provide a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, since to go on public property (such as a highway), you will have to obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.
Due to numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it arriving in a morning or afternoon slot.
Can I dispose of electrical items in the skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric goods must be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered items such as washing machines, TVs, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.
Am I able to put all kinds of rubbish in a skip?
You may use a skip to get rid of a variety of waste types. We are experienced in collecting and processing a wide variety of items from building jobs, garden landscaping and house clean-ups. Examples of permitted waste products include:
- Home furniture
- Tree cuttings
- Garden soil
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Many materials are generally accepted, therefore whether you need to dispose of metals, plastic materials, wood or clothing, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The volume and things you put into the skip will vary based on which size skip you hired. Skips have a weight limit for safety. So to be able to discard garden soil and concrete, as an example, the largest size you will be able to use is the 8 yard skip.
Are there any items which I can’t throw in the skip?
There are several materials which you are not permitted to throw out in the skip. The reason for this is that these goods incorporate hazardous materials that may damage the environment. They can also be dangerous to human health, therefore they have to be discarded separately within UK regulations.
Examples of the items that are restricted include:
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas cylinders
- Computer screens
- Battery packs

How big is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some household rubbish, the mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to take on many jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be situated on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most often chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is probably the most frequent skip hired across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builders skip is perfect for most building and demolition projects, which is where the name stems from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip is the largest size which can be used for hefty materials such as soil, concrete, rock and gravel.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Stonehouse?
Ideally, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface area. For anyone who is carrying out a household project, then the drive is going to be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. Having said that, if neither is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public property, you have got to get a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be placed on a street, grass verge or any other public property in Stonehouse. If this is needed, we will request the license to be issued on your behalf. An additional fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
We provide a whole variety of skip sizes to household and commercial customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the huge 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the various skip sizes on offer, with a rough idea of how much waste each size is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
- 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

How long can I hire a skip for?
You can usually hire a skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of offering a preferred collection time when you place your order.
Alternatively, just let us know when you’ve finished loading up your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It could take a little bit longer to collect your skip over busy periods, however we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.
Is it okay to fill my skip above level load line?
You must not load a skip beyond the level load mark. If you load it over the tip of this level, it means that the skip is not safe and secure to move, and you might be asked to take off any excess rubbish prior to it being picked up.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be at home when it is delivered. Then you can ensure that the lorry has full access and that the skip will be located precisely where you want it. The same is true if you have a skip delivered to business premises, especially when gates restrict access.
Having said that, if that is not possible, you don’t need to stress. Just tell us when placing your order, and then we will handle the rest.
Will a skip hire company from Stonehouse deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire companies to supply skips to our customers in Stonehouse and the rest of the UK. Our partner firms are verified and evaluated to ensure they match our standards for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.
What will happen to the waste when the skip is collected?
After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Stonehouse where we separate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to transport large amounts of waste materials. Generally, these type of skips are hired for commercial uses. However, household clients can also hire them. You should take into account the space they will take up, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be utilised for light-weight waste like paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of soil and concrete.
Is it possible to have a skip that has a drop down door?
The vast majority of skip sizes can be supplied with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the skip, especially with weighty materials, such as dirt and concrete, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, like pieces of furniture.
Can you deliver skips across Gloucestershire?
In addition to delivering our range of skips to Stonehouse, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Gloucestershire. By utilising a network of regional and national skip hire businesses, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to Stonehouse, Coleford or Minchinhampton, we have got it covered.
How much will skip hire in Stonehouse cost?
The price of getting a skip in Stonehouse depends on the size of skip you require. The cheapest skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you need to have your skip positioned on the road, because you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
