Teignmouth Skip Hire FAQs
Is it ok to stack up the waste in my skip?
I’m afraid not. You are only allowed to fill up the skip up to the level load mark. Loading waste materials up above this line makes it dangerous to move, and you can be told to take off the surplus waste before your skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or any other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and it can also make it overweight.
Is it possible to get a skip which has a drop door?
For anyone who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is perfect for disposing of hefty building and demolition materials, as it can be walked in the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop door, however these are generally less common. The reason being these sizes are typically low enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our best to make sure a skip that has a drop door is provided.
Am I allowed to put electronic items in my skip?
Electrical objects such as TVs, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous type of waste and so can not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric items need to be separated from other rubbish. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.
Will you deliver to other areas in Devon?
We provide a national skip hire and waste management service through a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you want skip hire in Teignmouth, Cullompton, Chudleigh, Exeter or another site in Devon, we are able to help.
What is classed as a builders skip?
The phrase builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The term originates from the fact that these are the most common sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are ideal for an array of domestic and business tasks. These are the largest skips which you can use for weighty builders waste like garden soil, stone and concrete.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?
No, you do not have to be at home when we are delivering the skip. As long as we can access where you need it positioned, we can manage it all.
If you are not likely to be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when booking your order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be positioned on a particular area of the property. Or you may want to be sure that the skip does not hinder entry to your garage.
Whatever the case might be, let us know when ordering, and we will ensure your directions are passed to the delivery driver.

This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to guarantee we can offer customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
Typically, you can have your skip for a maximum of two week. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a large container that can be used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These skips are mainly for commercial use but can be used by residential clients also. However, you will need a good amount of space because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger than the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, roll-on roll-off skips can only be hired for light materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and rubble.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size provided by skip companies and is great for smaller DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some companies will offer a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
We offer a full selection of skip capacities to household and business clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the enormous 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the various sizes on offer, with a rough guide to the amount of waste each size is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
- 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

What waste materials can I put in a skip?
A skip can be hired to dispose of lots of different types of waste. We are experienced in picking up and handling a multitude of items from building jobs, garden landscaping and property tidy-ups. A few examples of permitted waste types include:
- Household furniture
- Garden cuttings
- Top soil
- Bathroom suites
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Most waste types are permitted, and therefore whether you would like to dispose of furniture, plastic materials, wood or textiles, we can usually take your waste away.
The quantity and materials you discard in the skip can vary depending on the size skip you have hired. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you need to dispose of soil and hardcore, as an example, the largest size container you will be permitted to hire will be the 8 yard skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?
There are a few items that you will not be allowed to dispose of in the skip. The reason for this is that some products include hazardous elements that may be damaging to the environment. They may also be harmful to human health, so they must be disposed of separately within UK legislation.
A few examples of the products that are restricted include:
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- PC monitors
- Chemical substances
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Teignmouth?
This depends on where the skip will be located. You will only require a skip permit when it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit when your skip will be on private property, such as a drive or inside your company premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate your skip on your own property, it will save you some money.
When will my skip be delivered?
When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. Sometimes, we will even provide a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed as part of the online order process.

The waste will be separated into the different waste materials, such as timber, metals, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
