Stourbridge Skip Hire FAQs

Do you deliver to other areas in West Midlands?

Sure, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skip sizes to areas across West Midlands, such as Stourbridge, Darlaston, Oldbury and Birmingham. So wherever you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

What happens to the rubbish?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into different waste materials, like timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

If you have a business in Stourbridge and want to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container may be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers that can be hired.

As the label implies, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike standard skips, that are picked up by using chains.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We can typically supply skips to Stourbridge the next working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our online booking platform gives you a variety of delivery dates to select from. So whether you would like the skip to arrive asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.

How do I order a skip in Stourbridge?

We have developed our booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first task is to enter your postcode to see the range of skip sizes we can supply in Stourbridge. Pick the best size to meet your needs and give us the details of where and when you want your skip to be delivered. You can then make payment with our secure payment platform, and we’ll send an email to verify the order as soon as your order is done!

Am I able to put electronic items in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric goods must be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric powered products like washing machines, televisions, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.

Am I able to have a skip that has a drop door?

For anybody who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is made for getting rid of hefty building and demolition waste, as it can be pushed in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop-down door, though these are typically less common. The reason being these sizes are generally low enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a skip with a drop door is supplied.

How big is a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most commonly supplied for building jobs. There are typically two skip sizes that may be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to get rid of substantial quantities of construction and demolition waste materials, such as garden soil, concrete and bricks.

Although they are branded a builders skip, they can of course be used for various other household and commercial waste disposal tasks.

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

When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be in when the skip is delivered. Then you can be sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip can be situated exactly where you need it. The same is true when you have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates limit access.

On the other hand, when this is not achievable, you don’t have to stress. Just tell us when you are making your booking, and then we will handle the rest.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

Our standard hire term is two weeks from the date of delivery. However, at the time you book the skip, you can let us know a pick up date that is perfect for you. Of course, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is fully loaded sooner than expected, contact us, and we will get it collected as soon as possible.

Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to understand that this is not always the case during busier periods. Once collected, your skip will be transported to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed and sorted.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Stourbridge?

Our aim is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in Stourbridge. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip that you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have your skip positioned on the road or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the additional expense of a skip permit.

Will a skip hire company from Stourbridge deliver my skip?

Since we provide a nationwide waste management service, we use a comprehensive network of approved companies. These vary from small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental requirements.

Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?

It is important not to overload a skip, as you risk being required to remove surplus waste before it can be collected. Irrespective of what size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, because moving an overloaded bin can be hazardous, as waste could drop and result in personal injury or damage to others.

To prevent this issue, please make sure you hire a skip size appropriate for your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full but you have some more rubbish to dispose of, we are happy to provide an exchange.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Stourbridge?

This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only require a skip permit if it is placed on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit when your skip is on your private property, like a drive or inside your company premises.

If you need to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate the skip on your own land, you will save a few pounds.

What is a mini skip?

When you have a small quantity of waste to throw out, the mini skip may be the ideal choice. What size is called a mini skip differs from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they supply.

The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 cubic yard skip for their smallest option. Price is dependent on the specific size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are best for residential jobs such as modest DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you want it put on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

What are the different skip sizes available?

We offer a complete selection of skip sizes to household and commercial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the enormous 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

Below are the various sized skips you can choose from, with a rough idea of the amount of rubbish each size is capable of holding:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags

What can I put in the skip?

You are allowed to fill up the skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly produced from house clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include wood, garden soil, concrete, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you throw in your skip depends on which size you have hired, because there is a weight restriction. For example, if you are using a skip for heavy construction wastes including stone or top soil, the maximum size you could hire is the 8 cubic yard.

Some materials cannot be disposed of in a skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.

Other areas covered include Darlaston, Oldbury, Birmingham, Blackheath, Sedgley, Willenhall, Bloxwich and Smethwick.
