Below are some of the common questions we have received relating to our skip hire and recycling service.

Stratford-upon-Avon Skip Hire FAQs

How big is a builders skip?

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most commonly supplied for construction projects. There are typically two skip sizes which can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to get rid of significant amounts of construction and demolition materials, such as garden soil, rubble and bricks.

Even though they are labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for a number of other household and commercial waste disposal jobs.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

Virtually all containers can be supplied with a drop door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the skip, especially with heavy materials, like soil and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, like household furniture.

Can I put electrical products in my skip?

Electrical items such as TVs, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so can not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic objects need to be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly way.

What is the cost of skip hire in Stratford-upon-Avon?

To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Stratford-upon-Avon, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you which skip sizes we offer in your location and how much each size will cost to hire. If your skip will be on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also have to be factored in.

What types of waste materials can I put in a skip?

This is amongst the most common questions people have about skip hire. What is important to keep in mind is that you can fill up your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of waste that can result from garden work, construction work and house clearances.

Some of the most typical things which we see in our skips include soil, timber, tree cuttings, cupboards, bathroom suites, and other household products.

However, there are some items that you are not allowed to put in the skip. This consists of any electronic items (tumble dryers, TVs and computers for example), car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. These are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them has to adhere to a completely different process to make sure they do not cause damage to the environment.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is delivered?

It usually is best if you can be in when anybody delivers something to your property. You can then ensure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be placed just where you want it.

The same thing applies if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.

However, when it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

If you have a small quantity of rubbish to get rid of, a mini skip might be the ideal option. What size is referred to as a mini skip is different from company to company, based on what sizes they have.

The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. Price depends on the specific size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are fantastic for domestic tasks including modest DIY projects and garden shed tidy 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 great choice.

Where does the rubbish go when the skip is collected?

When you have finished with your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility in or local to Stratford-upon-Avon where we sort the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

Our normal hire period is 2 weeks from the date of delivery. Having said that, at the time you order the skip, you can select a pick up date that is best for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is fully loaded sooner than expected, contact us, and we will pick it up as quickly as possible.

We will normally be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. However, it is important to keep in mind that this may not be possible during busier periods. Once collected, the skip will be transported to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed and sorted.

If I require a skip on the road in Stratford-upon-Avon, will I need to have a permit?

If possible, you should have the skip left on a hard surface area. For anyone who is doing a household project, then your driveway is going to be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, when neither is available, the street or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public property, you will need to have a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge or any other public property in Stratford-upon-Avon. If this is needed, we will request the license to be granted for you. An extra charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

What sizes do skips come in?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Stratford-upon-Avon, you have numerous sizes to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for small home clearances and DIY tasks.

Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their large capacity also means they are great for household clearances involving bulky objects like furniture and beds.

We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people and businesses with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only suitable for lightweight waste, so they cannot be hired to get rid of garden soil or stone.

For more information about the different sizes available, such as dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Stratford-upon-Avon?

Since we offer a UK-wide skip hire service, we use an extensive network of verified and approved companies. These range from small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental principles.

Will you deliver skips across Warwickshire?

We provide a UK wide skip hire and recycling service through a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Stratford-upon-Avon, Whitnash, Warwick, Rugby or another location in Warwickshire, we can help.

Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?

Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this makes it dangerous to transport, and you will then be asked to remove any rubbish over the level load line. This also means that you are unable to use sheets of wood, doors or any other item, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal responsibility to ensure that bins are not overfilled or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure that you order the appropriate sized skip to meet your requirements and get in touch if you’re not sure which size is best. We will be glad to help.

How can I hire a skip in Stratford-upon-Avon?

We have developed our booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. Step one is to type in your address to view all the different skip sizes we can deliver in Stratford-upon-Avon. Pick the best size to meet your needs and provide us with the details of when and where you need your skip delivered. Then you can make payment through the secure payment platform, and we will send you an email to verify the order once your booking is done!

How long will it take to get a skip in Stratford-upon-Avon?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We can typically give you a next day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (such as a road), you need to obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.

As a result of many factors that could impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it arriving within a morning or afternoon slot.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge container used to get rid of large volumes of waste. These bins are predominantly for commercial use but can be used by residential clients as well. Having said that, you should have a lot of room as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger compared to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, these containers should only be provided for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and bricks.

Other areas covered include Whitnash, Warwick, Rugby, Atherstone, Bedworth, Alcester, Shipston-on-Stour and Coleshill.
