Can a skip be dropped on a road in Stow-on-the-Wold?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you would like the skip to be placed on land outside of your business or home, you will have to secure authorisation from the local council in Stow-on-the-Wold, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we would gladly organise this for you, and so it’s one less point to worry about. The council will charge a fee for your skip permit, and you should be aware before placing your order that securing the licence can sometimes take up to 2 working days.

We will instantly show you the skip sizes we offer in your area and how much each one will cost to hire.

What size is a builder’s skip?
The term builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yd skip. The term comes from the fact that these are the most common sizes used by general builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are suited to a multitude of residential and commercial projects. These are the biggest sizes that you can use for heavy builders waste including garden soil, rubble and gravel.
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into different waste streams, including timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
If you operate a company in Stow-on-the-Wold and wish to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 – 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips on the market.
As the name suggests, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike standard skips, which are picked up using chains.
Do you deliver to other areas in Gloucestershire?
Certainly. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to provide skips to household and commercial customers throughout Gloucestershire and anywhere else in the UK.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be at home at the time the skip is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has total access and that the skip can be placed exactly where you want it. The same is applicable if you have a skip delivered to company property, particularly if gates restrict access.
Having said that, if this isn’t achievable, you do not need to worry. Simply tell us when you are placing your booking, and we will handle everything.
What is a mini skip?
When you have a small amount of rubbish to dispose of, the mini skip could be the ideal choice. What size is identified as a mini skip is different from business to business, based on what sizes they have.
The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. Price depends on the particular size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for residential jobs like small DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
Can I throw away electronic products in my skip?
Electrical items like television sets, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so cannot be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic products should be segregated from other waste. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will make sure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we are not able to promise an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You have to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will most likely incur a fee for the wasted journey.
Can I put all kinds of rubbish in my skip?
You are able to fill the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from garage clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include wood, dirt, stone, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in your skip depends on the size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, when you will be using a skip for heavy construction wastes such as stone or dirt, the biggest size you could use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be disposed of in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Stow-on-the-Wold, you will have several sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is excellent for modest household clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most frequent sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also means they are ideal for household tidy ups involving large objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for customers with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only suited to light materials, so they can’t be used to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
For additional information about the different sizes offered, including dimensions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Will a skip hire company from Stow-on-the-Wold deliver my skip?
A local skip hire company will likely deliver your skip in Stow-on-the-Wold. We work with a network of both regional and nationwide businesses to allow us to offer our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are thoroughly vetted to make sure they satisfy the high principles we demand regarding customer service, cost and environmental performance.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Typically, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you need a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip that has a drop door is mainly useful when choosing a large builder’s skip, because it allows you to wheelbarrow waste materials directly into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Am I allowed to load my skip higher than the top?
No. You are only allowed to load your skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste materials up over this line will make it unsafe to move, and you can be told to remove the excess waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.
