Tetbury Skip Hire FAQs
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial industrial scale skips used predominantly in the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for companies that produce large quantities of waste.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can typically have your skip for as many as 2 weeks from your delivery date. You can give a preferred collection day at the time you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us after you have finished with the skip, and we will organise your collection. In most cases, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take a little longer during busy times.
What size skips do you offer?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Tetbury, you have multiple options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is excellent for small domestic clearances and DIY work.
Our next available size 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, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their substantial capacity also means they are ideal for household tidy ups including bulky items like pieces of furniture and beds.
We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only appropriate for lightweight waste materials, so they can not be used to dispose of soil or concrete.
For additional details about the various sizes offered, such as measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?
No, you do not need to be home when we deliver your skip. Providing we can access the place you need it positioned, we are able to take care of it all.
If you are not likely to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you place your order. For instance, you may want the skip to be positioned on a particular area of your property. Or you may need to ensure that the skip does not hinder access to your garage.
No matter what the situation may be, simply let us know when ordering, and then we will ensure your instructions are passed to the delivery driver.
How can I order a skip in Tetbury?
We have designed our booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to type in your delivery address to see the range of skip sizes we are able to deliver in Tetbury. Select the right size to meet your needs and provide us with the details of where and when you would like your skip to be delivered. You can then make payment with our secure payment system, and we will send you an email to confirm the order once your booking is complete!
Which size skips can have a door?
The majority of containers can be delivered with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the bin, especially with weighty materials, like soil and gravel, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky items, like household furniture.
Is it okay to load the skip higher than the top?
I’m afraid not. You are only allowed to load your skip up to the level load mark. Piling rubbish up over this line would make it unsafe to move, and you might be told to get rid of the surplus waste before your skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or any other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
The builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. They are the largest skips that can be hired to get rid of substantial construction waste materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or garden soil.
A builder’s skip is perfect for a wide array of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning the loft, these big skips tend to be the most cost-effective solution available.
How big is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size delivered by skip companies and is designed for small DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies provide a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Tetbury?
Ideally, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface. When you are carrying out a residential task, then the drive will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you must obtain a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be dropped on a road, grass verge or any other public property in Tetbury. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be granted for you. An additional cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your skip.
Will you deliver to other areas in Gloucestershire?
We provide a UK wide skip hire and recycling service through a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you need skip hire in Tetbury, Stroud, Painswick, Dursley or another area in Gloucestershire, we are able to assist.
What sort of waste am I allowed to throw in a skip?
You are allowed to put a variety of waste types into your skip. This includes timber, tile, plastics or bricks from a property clearance. Tree and bush clippings, dirt and rock from garden work is permitted also. Cupboards from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be thrown in your skip.
However, there are some materials that you cannot put in a skip due to the potential ecological or health risk they may trigger.
You are unable to throw in your refrigerator, printer or old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things contain hazardous materials in one form or another. They need to be disposed of separately from your normal waste.
Should you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to arrange an independent service for this material. Feel free to email for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
How long does it take to get a skip in Tetbury?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll make sure 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.
When you complete your booking before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver, we endeavour to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery area, as failed delivery attempts will lead to a charge for a wasted trip.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into different waste materials, such as timber, metals, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Am I able to dispose of electrical items in the skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items need to be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric powered products like tumble dryers, televisions, toasters, computers and even hair straighteners.

We utilize a network of both regional and national companies to allow us to offer our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These companies are comprehensively vetted to ensure they match the high expectations we require regarding service, cost and environmental performance.
