Swaffham Skip Hire FAQs

Will a skip hire company from Swaffham deliver my skip?

To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work in partnership with a number of local and national businesses. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we can provide customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.

What will happen to the rubbish once the skip is picked up?

Once you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling station in or local to Swaffham where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

How big is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered by skip companies and is designed for smaller DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies will offer a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

Can I put all kinds of rubbish in a skip?

You can throw a variety of rubbish into your skip. This includes timber, ceramic tiles, plastics or concrete from a household clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, soil and stone from garden tasks are allowed as well. Worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be discarded in a skip.

However, there are some materials that you can’t put in a skip a result of the possible environmental or health risk they can trigger.

You can’t get rid of your freezer, computer or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. All of these items incorporate hazardous elements in one form or another. They must be disposed of separately from your general waste.

If you want hazardous waste removal, we may be able to schedule a separate service for this waste. Feel free to email us for further information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling centre.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Swaffham?

The price of getting a skip in Swaffham depends on the size of skip you require. The least expensive skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you need a bigger skip, like an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also be more if you need to have a skip placed on the road, because you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to a fortnight. In most cases, that provides you with plenty of time to fill up your skip. However, if you need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, should you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just contact us once you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.

If I require a skip on the road in Swaffham, will I need a permit?

If at all possible, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface. When you are doing a residential job, then a driveway will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. However, if neither is available, the road or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public property, you must get a permit from your local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge or other public property in Swaffham. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be granted on your behalf. An additional fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

Can I load the skip higher than the level load line?

Unfortunately not. You must only pack your skip up to the level load mark. Loading waste materials up over this line would make it dangerous to move, and you could be asked to take off the surplus waste before the skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to get rid of significant amounts of waste. In the majority of cases, these type of skips are hired for industrial purposes. However, residential clients may also order them. You will need to look at the space they occupy, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be used for lightweight materials including plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of dirt and concrete.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?

No, you can not put old or unwanted electrical waste products in your skip. This includes things like laptops or computers, microwaves, dishwashers, fridges and computer monitors. Electrical products can’t be disposed of in the skip as they can include dangerous materials and components.

Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.

Will you deliver skips across Norfolk?

We provide a UK wide skip hire and waste management service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Swaffham, North Walsham, Sheringham, Hingham or another area in Norfolk, we are able to assist.

How soon can you deliver a skip to Swaffham?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We will typically offer a following day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, as to be on public property (like a highway), you need to gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of many factors that can impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it arriving within a morning or afternoon slot.

Am I able to have a skip which has a drop door?

Generally speaking, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is primarily useful if you are choosing a big builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow your rubbish into the skip. This is not so important for mini and midi skips, because they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Do I have to be home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

It usually is best if you can be in when anybody delivers anything to your home. That enables you to make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be placed exactly where you need it.

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

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The term builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The name comes from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.

These large containers are suitable for an array of residential and business tasks. They are the largest sizes that can be used for weighty builders waste like soil, rubble and gravel.

How many different skip sizes are available?

We supply a wide range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip great for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A common choice for larger projects, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Swaffham companies which generate a large volume of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.
