Swadlincote Skip Hire FAQs
What will happen to the waste in the skip?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get segregated into a range of waste types, which includes timber, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the collection is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Can I stack up the waste in my skip?
Unfortunately not. You must only fill your skip up to the level load mark. Loading rubbish up over this line would make it unsafe to move, and you might be asked to get rid of the excess waste before your skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or any other objects to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and can also make it overweight.
How long can I hire the skip for?
Normally, you can have a skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you do not need to rush through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.
Will a skip hire company from Swadlincote deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both regional and national skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in Swadlincote and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner skip companies are approved and evaluated to make sure they meet our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Swadlincote?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Swadlincote, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display the sizes we provide in your location and how much each size costs to order. If your skip will be on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also have to be factored in.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can in most cases deliver skips to Swadlincote the following working day when an order is made before 3pm. This is applicable to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking system will give you a range of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you need a skip delivered asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
What waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
You are able to throw a variety of waste types in the skip. This can include timber, ceramic tiles, plastics or bricks from a household clearance. Tree and bush clippings, soil and stone from garden tasks are allowed as well. Worktops from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also go in the skip.
There are, however, things that you are not allowed to put in a skip due to the potential ecological or health risk they might cause.
You can’t get rid of your fridge, computer monitor or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things incorporate hazardous components in one form or another. They should be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
If you want hazardous waste removal, we might be able to organise an independent service for this waste. Please get in touch for more information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip means the size of skip most frequently used for construction work. There are typically two different sizes which can be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to get rid of large volumes of construction and demolition waste materials, including garden soil, rubble and rock.
Although labelled a builders skip, they can be used for many other household and business waste disposal tasks.
Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be at home on the day it is delivered. Then you can ensure that the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip can be situated exactly where you want it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to business property, especially if gates restrict access.
Having said that, when this is not feasible, you do not need to stress. Just tell us when placing your order, and we will take care of everything.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
Virtually all skips can be provided with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, like garden soil and bricks, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, like pieces of furniture.
How do I hire a skip online?
Hiring a skip should not be difficult. That is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, type in your delivery address to see the range of skip sizes we can deliver to Swadlincote. Select the size you want to order, and confirm whether it will be positioned on private property. Type in your details and make payment using our secure online payment platform.
Once your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with all of your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
Am I able to throw electronic items in the skip?
No, you can not dispose of old or broken electrical waste products in a skip. This can include such things as laptops, hobs, dishwashers, freezers and monitors. Electrical products can’t be discarded in your skip because they can have dangerous materials and components.
Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
What size skips can you provide?

For further information about our selection of skips, like measurements and the waste materials they can be used for, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a massive skip that is used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are mainly for industrial use but can be hired by residential customers as well. However, you will require plenty of space since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger in comparison to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.
As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off skips should only be provided for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and rubble.
What size is the mini skip?
If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, the mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to tackle many tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be situated on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most commonly chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Swadlincote?
In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you would like the skip to be situated on land outside of your company or residence, you must obtain permission from the local council in Swadlincote, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we would be happy to organise this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less point to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for your license, and you should know before booking that getting the permit will often take up to 2 working days.
Will you deliver skips across Derbyshire?
Certainly. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to deliver skips to both household and industrial customers across Derbyshire and elsewhere in the UK.
