Tewkesbury Skip Hire FAQs

Do all skips have a drop down door?

For anyone who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is ideal for getting rid of heavy building and construction waste materials, as it can be pushed in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop-down door, although these are less common. This is because these sizes are generally low enough at the ends to be able to 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 utmost to make sure a skip that has a drop door is delivered.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The name builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the largest containers used to get rid of substantial building and demolition waste materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or dirt.

The builder’s skip is ideal for a variety of jobs. If you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out the loft space, these substantial skips are often the most cost-effective choice available.

Is it okay to stack up waste in my skip?

It is important to never overfill a skip. You should not pass the level load line that is shown on the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it becomes very dangerous to move. Which means that when you overfill the skip, you could be asked to take off the surplus rubbish. However secure you feel the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This can be unsafe and is therefore not allowed.

How long can I hire a skip for?

You can normally have your skip for up to 14 days from the date of delivery. You are able to give a preferred collection day when you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can let us know once you have finished, and then we will arrange the collection. Normally, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer during busy times.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips come in a number of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is perfect for small domestic tasks.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a good choice for attic clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial waste disposal task to take on, the builder’s skip might be the smartest choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label implies, these are the most typical sizes used by builders for construction waste, like soil and hardcore. However they can just as well be hired for household rubbish such as old furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also offer 10-16 cubic yard bins and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. To get more details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

How big is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact skip offered by skip companies and is perfect for smaller DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some firms will provide a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as a 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 you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?

It is always a good idea to 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 located exactly where you want it.

The same applies for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.

What will happen to the waste in my skip?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into the various waste streams, like wood, metals, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What kinds of rubbish can I put in a skip?

It is possible to fill the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from house clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, garden soil, concrete, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you throw in the skip will depend on which size you have ordered, as there is a weight limit. For instance, if you will be using your skip for heavy building waste including stone or dirt, the maximum size you would be able to get is an 8 cubic yard.

Some materials should not be disposed of in a skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.

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

A roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a huge skip used to get rid of large amounts of rubbish. These bins are mainly for commercial use but can be used by residential clients also. However, you will want a good amount of room since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger when compared to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, roll-on roll-off containers can only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not suitable for disposing of concrete and bricks.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Tewkesbury?

If at all possible, you should have the skip left on a hard surface area. If you are carrying out a domestic job, then a drive is going to be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. On the other hand, when neither is available, the road or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public land, you need to have a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be located on a street, grass verge or other public property in Tewkesbury. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be granted on your behalf. An extra charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

Other areas covered include Thornbury, Cheltenham, Nailsworth, Winchcombe, Cinderford, Newent, Chipping Sodbury and Painswick.
