Stourport-on-Severn Skip Hire FAQs
What is the cost of skip hire in Stourport-on-Severn?
The cost of hiring a skip in Stourport-on-Severn is determined by the size of skip you need. The lowest priced option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also be more if you need to have a skip positioned on the road, because you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can usually hire a skip for up to 14 days from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, there is the choice of giving a preferred collection time when making your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It could take a little while longer to collect your skip during busy times, however we will always endeavour to come as quickly as possible.
Is it possible to have a skip that has a drop down door?
Generally, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop down door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you want a drop down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Having a skip with a drop door is primarily useful if choosing a large builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, as they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Will you deliver to other areas in Worcestershire?
We provide a nationwide skip hire and recycling service by using a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you need skip hire in Stourport-on-Severn, Worcester, Evesham, Bromsgrove or any other location in Worcestershire, we are able to help.
What kinds of rubbish am I able to put in a skip?
A skip can be hired to discard lots of different types of waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and processing numerous materials produced from construction work, garden projects and home tidy-ups. A few examples of permitted waste types can include:
- Pieces of furniture
- Tree trimmings
- Garden soil
- Bathroom toilets and sinks
- Cabinets and units
Most waste types are usually permitted, and so whether you would like to get rid of metals, plastic materials, wood or fabric, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The quantity and waste types you put into your skip will vary depending on the size skip you hired. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you would like discard top soil and hardcore, for example, the largest size container you would be permitted to hire will be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Are there items that I can’t throw in the skip?
There are several waste items you will not be permitted to put in the skip. The reason for this is that some goods include hazardous elements which may damage the environment. They may also be dangerous to human health, and so they must be disposed of separately within UK regulations.
A few examples of the products which are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- Computer screens
- Battery packs
- Chemical substances
Can I load up my skip higher than the side?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it dangerous to transport, and you will probably be asked to remove any materials over the level load line. This also means that you cannot use sheets of wood, doors or some other item, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal obligation to make sure that skips are not overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure you order the appropriate size of skip for your requirements and get in contact if you’re not sure which size is best. We will be glad to help.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Stourport-on-Severn?
This depends on where the skip will be located. You will only require a permit when it is placed on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit if the skip is on your private property, such as a driveway or within your company premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, so we can make the required arrangements with your local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate your skip on your own property, you will save some pounds.
How soon can you deliver a skip to Stourport-on-Severn?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we try to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery location, as failed delivery attempts can result in a fee for a wasted journey.
How large is the mini skip?
When you have a small quantity of waste to throw out, the mini skip may be the ideal solution. What size is described as a mini skip varies from business to business, based on what sizes they have.
The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 yard container for their smallest option. Cost is dependent on the specific size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for residential tasks like modest DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
Where does the rubbish go once the skip is collected?
When you have finished with your skip, we will come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre in or local to Stourport-on-Severn where we will separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. They are the largest skips used to get rid of substantial building and demolition waste materials such as rock, bricks, rubble or clay.
The builders skip is great for a wide array of tasks. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing out the garage, these big skips are often the most cost-effective option available.
Do I need to be home when the skip is going to be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be at home when the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure that the lorry has complete access and that the skip will be placed precisely where you need it. The same is applicable when you have a skip delivered to business property, especially when gates limit access.
On the other hand, when this is not achievable, you do not need to be concerned. Simply tell us when making your order, and then we will handle the rest.
Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
Electric powered objects such as television sets, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste and so can not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic objects should be separated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
What size roll-on roll-off skips are available?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container that can be used to dispose of significant volumes of waste. Generally, these type of skips are hired for industrial uses. However, domestic clients may also hire them. You should look at the space they take up, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be hired for lightweight materials including paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of dirt and rubble.
