What waste can I put in a skip?
A skip can be hired to dispose of a variety of types of waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and handling numerous materials produced from building jobs, garden projects and house clearances. Examples of allowed waste products can include:
- Home furnishings
- Tree trimmings
- Garden soil
- Bathroom suites
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Many materials will be permitted, and therefore whether you want to discard metals, plastic materials, timber or fabric, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The volume and items you put in your skip may vary according to which size skip you have ordered. Skips do have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you wish to dispose of garden soil and concrete, as an example, the biggest size container you will be allowed to hire would be the 8 yard builders skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?
There are some materials you will not be permitted to get rid of in the skip. The reason behind this is that these items incorporate hazardous materials which could be damaging to the environment. They can even be hazardous to human health, therefore they have to be disposed of separately under UK regulations.
Some examples of the things that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas canisters
- PC screens
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
How long will it take to get a skip in Street?
If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the very next day. In some instances, we can even give you a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed as part of the online order process.
Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be at home when it is delivered. Then you can make sure the lorry has complete access and that the skip is located exactly where you want it. The same applies for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly if gates restrict access.
Having said that, if this is not achievable, you do not need to worry. Just let us know when placing your order, and we will take care of the rest.
Will you deliver to other areas in Somerset?
Certainly, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can provide skips to areas across Somerset, including Street, Ilminster, Wincanton and Axbridge. So regardless of where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
What size skips will have a drop down door?
When you are selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is great for disposing of heavy building and demolition waste, as it can be pushed in the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop door, although these are generally less common. This is because these sizes are generally small enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to make sure a container with a drop door is supplied.
What will happen to the waste when the skip is picked up?
When you have finished with your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer station either in or local to Street where we will sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
Am I able to throw away electronic items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products need to be kept separate from general waste to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric goods including washing machines, monitors, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, that will give you sufficient time to fill up your skip. However, if you need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, in the event you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just contact us once you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Street?
In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you want the skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or house, you will need to obtain authorisation from the local council in Street, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we will be happy to organise this for you, therefore it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for the skip license, and you should know before booking that obtaining the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Street?
To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a number of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to supply customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.
What skip sizes do you deliver?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Street, you have multiple options to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for modest household clearances and DIY work.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also makes them well suited for household tidy ups involving large items such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for those with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only suitable for lightweight waste, so they cannot be used to dispose of soil or concrete.
For further information regarding the various capacities available, including measurements, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The phrase builders skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yd skip. The name comes from the fact that these are the most common sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are suitable for a wide variety of residential and commercial tasks. These are the largest sizes that can be used for hefty builders waste such as dirt, stone and bricks.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you have a business in Street and need to dispose of large volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a perfect option. Offered in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips that can be hired.
As the label indicates, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike normal skips, which are picked up using chains.
Is it ok to stack up the waste in my skip?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it dangerous to transport, and you will then have to empty any rubbish above the level load mark. This also means you are unable to make use of sheets of wood, doors or any other item, as this will increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal obligation to ensure that containers are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure that you select the correct size of skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you are not sure which size is best. We would be happy to help.
