Stowmarket Skip Hire FAQs
How fast can you deliver a skip in Stowmarket?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your booking prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver, we try to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery location, as failed deliveries can result in a fee for a wasted journey.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yd skip. The name originates from the fact that these are the most popular sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are great for a wide variety of domestic and commercial tasks. These are the biggest size skips which can be used for hefty builders waste including top soil, stone and gravel.
Which size skips have got a drop door?
Using a skip which has a drop door will make loading rubbish into the skip so much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste materials such as garden soil or concrete, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make throwing away large bulky objects like pieces of furniture easier too.
Most skips can be provided with a drop down door, however this can sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when placing your booking if a drop door is required, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.
Will you deliver to other areas in Suffolk?
Yes. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we are able to supply skips to household and industrial customers throughout Suffolk and elsewhere in the UK.

What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into the various waste streams, like wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This means that as much of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
If I require a skip on a road in Stowmarket, will I need a permit?
In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need the skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or home, you will need to get permission from the local authority in Stowmarket, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we will gladly organise this for you, therefore it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for your license, plus you should know before ordering that getting the permit can often take up to 2 working days.
Do I need to be home when the skip is delivered?
No, you do not have to be at home when we are delivering your skip. So long as we are able to gain access to the place you need it delivered, we can manage it all.
If you will not be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be located on a particular side of the driveway. Or you might need to make sure the skip does not obstruct access to your garage.
Whatever the situation might be, provide the information when you place your order, and we will make sure your instructions are passed on to the lorry driver.
Can I dispose of all kinds of waste in the skip?
This is amongst the most common questions people have about our service. What is important to consider is that you may load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of waste that could result from garden projects, construction work and house clearances.
Among the most common items that we see in our skips include garden soil, timber, bush cuttings, kitchen cabinets, baths, and other household objects.
There are also some items that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This can include any electrical objects (refrigerators, televisions or cookers for example), old car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and therefore getting rid of them has to adhere to an entirely different procedure to make sure they don’t cause harm to the environment.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Stowmarket?
This will depend on the skip size you will need and whether you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the least expensive choice. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in commercial settings.

Can I load my skip higher than the level load line?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it dangerous to transport, and you will then have to remove any rubbish over the level load line. This also means that you can not make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other item, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal responsibility to ensure that skips are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure that you choose the correct size of skip for your requirements and get in contact if you’re unsure which size is best. We will be pleased to help.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
Our standard hire term will be 2 weeks from your date of delivery. Having said that, when you book your skip, you can provide a collection date that is best for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is finished with sooner than expected, let us know, and we will pick it up at the earliest opportunity.
We will usually be out to get your skip within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this may not always be possible at busier periods. Once collected, your waste will be taken to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed and sorted.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are great for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furniture and broken toys to paving slabs and concrete. With a capacity of about 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you having to make multiple visits to the local recycling centre.
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
No, you can not throw old or unwanted electrical waste items in a skip. This can include things such as laptops, cookers, washing machines, refrigerators and television sets. Electrical objects can’t be thrown in the skip as they can contain hazardous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.
