Telford Skip Hire FAQs
Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Electrical products including television sets, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore can not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric products must be separated from other waste. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you operate a business in Telford and want to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container might be a great option. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips that are available.
As the name indicates, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, in contrast to normal skips, that are picked up by using chains.
What can I put in my skip?
You are able to put a wide array of waste into the skip. This can include timber, bathroom tiles, metal or bricks from a household clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, dirt and rock from garden jobs are permitted as well. Cupboards from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be discarded in your skip.
However, there are some items that you can’t put in a skip a result of the possible ecological or health risks they might trigger.
You are unable to throw out your refrigerator, laptop or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things incorporate hazardous components in one type or another. They need to be discarded separately from general waste.
If you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to schedule a separate service for this material. Please get in touch for more information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling centre.

If I want a skip on the road in Telford, will I need a permit?
Generally, it is possible to get a skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But to get this done, you must get permission from the local council in Telford, which is called a skip permit. We are able to order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council do impose a fee for this license, and it may sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
What is the cost of skip hire in Telford?
The cost of getting a skip in Telford will depend on the size of skip you require. The least expensive skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also increase if you need to have a skip positioned on the highway, because you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Will a skip hire company from Telford deliver my skip?
A local skip firm will most likely deliver your skip in Telford. We work with a network of both local and national companies to enable us to offer our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are thoroughly vetted to guarantee they meet the high expectations we require with regards to customer service, cost and environmental performance.
Where does my rubbish go once the skip is picked up?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into the different waste streams, such as timber, metals, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Can I load the skip above the level load mark?
You must not fill up your skip past the level load line. When you load it above the tip of this mark, it means that the skip is not safe to transport, and you may be asked to take off the excess rubbish prior to it being collected.
Will you deliver skips across Shropshire?
Yes. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we are able to offer skips to residential and business customers throughout Shropshire and anywhere else within the UK.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be in at the time the skip is delivered. You can then make sure the lorry has full access and that the skip can be situated exactly where you need it. The same is true when you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly if gates restrict access.
However, if that isn’t achievable, you don’t need to stress. Simply let us know when you are placing your order, and then we will take care of the rest.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
For those who have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, the mini skip could be the perfect solution. What size is known as a mini skip differs from business to business, depending on what sizes they provide.
2 cubic yards is considered the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 yard container for their smallest option. Cost is dependent on the specific size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are great for household tasks including small DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The term builder’s skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The name originates from the fact that they are the most popular sizes used by general builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are perfect for a wide variety of residential and industrial projects. They are the biggest skip sizes that can be used for hefty builders waste like dirt, rubble and bricks.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
Generally, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
Am I able to have a skip that has a drop door?
Getting a skip with a drop down door helps make filling waste into it much easier. This is especially true with hefty waste like dirt and rubble, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading up large bulky objects like pieces of furniture much easier as well.
The majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, but this can sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a door is needed, and we will do our very best to deliver this.
