Tamworth Skip Hire FAQs
Is it okay to load my skip above level load line?
It is important never to overload a skip, as you run the risk of being asked to remove excessive waste prior to it being picked up. Irrespective of what size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, as transporting an overloaded skip will be unsafe, as rubbish could fall and lead to personal injury or damage to other people.
To prevent this issue, please ensure that you hire a size appropriate for your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full and you have further waste to get rid of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
Which size skips can have a door?
Getting a skip with a drop down door will make loading rubbish into it so much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty materials such as garden soil or stone, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make throwing away big bulky objects like furniture much easier also.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, but this will sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.
How large is a mini skip?
When you have a small amount of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip could be the perfect solution. What size is referred to as a mini skip varies from business to business, based on what sizes they offer.
The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to have a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. The cost depends on the particular size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for residential tasks like small DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
How long can I keep a skip for?
Typically, you can have your skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you don’t have to rush through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of significant amounts of waste materials. Mostly, these type of skips are used for business purposes. However, domestic customers can also use them. You will need to think about the area they will take up, because they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be hired for lightweight waste like plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and concrete.
Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be at home on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip will be positioned exactly where you need it. The same is true when you have a skip delivered to business premises, especially when gates restrict access.
However, if this is not achievable, you don’t have to be concerned. Simply tell us when making your booking, and then we will handle the rest.
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
Electric powered objects like TVs, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore cannot be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic goods should be separated from other rubbish. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly manner.
How can I order a skip online?
Hiring a skip in Tamworth through us is very straightforward. Pick the skip size you need and input a couple of details about where and when you would like the skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and arrange to get your skip delivered.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in my skip?
You are able to load the skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly generated from home clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include wood, dirt, bricks, hedge trimmings, household furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip would depend on which size you have ordered, because there is a weight restriction. For example, in the event that you are using your skip for heavy construction wastes like rubble or soil, the biggest size you would be able to use is the 8 yard skip.
Some materials cannot be discarded in the skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
Where will my rubbish go when the skip is picked up?
Once you have finished filling your skip, we will come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Tamworth where we will sort the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
What is the cost of skip hire in Tamworth?
Our aim is to offer the cheapest skip hire service in Tamworth. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip located on the street or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the additional cost of the skip permit.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Tamworth, you will have various sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for small household clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next size available 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, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their large capacity also makes them great for house clearances including large items such as furniture and beds.
We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These containers are only suited to light materials, so they cannot be hired to get rid of soil or rubble.

Do you deliver skips across Staffordshire?
Certainly. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we can offer skips to domestic and commercial customers throughout Staffordshire and elsewhere within the UK.
How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These will be the biggest skips that can be used to get rid of substantial building and construction waste such as stone, concrete, gravel or clay.
The builder’s skip is perfect for a wide array of tasks. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning out your loft, these big skips are usually the most affordable option available.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Tamworth?
If possible, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface. For anyone who is carrying out a domestic task, then a driveway is going to be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public property, you will have to get a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be dropped on a road, grass verge as well as other public property in Tamworth. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be issued on your behalf. An additional fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your booking prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive, we strive to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery area, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will result in a charge for the wasted trip.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Tamworth?
A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Tamworth. We utilize a network of both local and nationwide businesses to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully vetted to ensure they match the high expectations we demand in terms of customer service, price and environmental performance.
