How big is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are great for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and broken toys to paving blocks and concrete. With a capacity of approximately 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make multiple trips to the local recycling centre.

Can you deliver skips across Essex?

Through our network of local and national skip hire businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering in Thaxted, Walton-on-the-Naze or Witham, we have got it covered.
Where does the waste be taken to once the skip is collected?
The waste in your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling station. Here the waste will be separated by machines and also by hand into various waste materials, like metal, plastics, hardcore and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste ending up in landfill.
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Thaxted. We make use of a network of both regional and national providers to allow us to offer our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are fully vetted to ensure they match the high expectations we demand with regards to service, price and environmental performance.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We will typically offer you a following day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, since to be on public property (such as a road), you will have to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of several factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it turning up within a AM or PM slot.
Is it possible to get a skip that has a drop down door?
Having a skip that has a drop door makes loading rubbish into it a lot easier. This is especially true with hefty materials like dirt or concrete, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up big bulky items like pieces of furniture a lot easier also.
Most skip containers can be provided with a drop door, but it will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our best to deliver this.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
If you operate a business in Thaxted and wish to get rid of large amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the name implies, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to standard skips, that are picked up by using chains.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Thaxted?
Our goal is to offer the most affordable skip hire service in Thaxted. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you need to have a skip positioned on the highway or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the additional cost of the skip permit.
Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Thaxted?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like your skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or home, you must receive authorisation from the local authority in Thaxted, which is known as a permit. If required, we would be glad to organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less issue to think about. The council will charge a fee for the skip license, and you should know before placing your order that securing the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.
Do I need to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be home when your skip is being delivered, however it will help. Being in whenever the skip is delivered means that you can make sure the delivery driver can be given full access and that your skip can be dropped exactly where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is delivered to business property, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, if you can’t be around during delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask that you tell us when you place the order, and we will arrange everything from there.
Am I able to throw away electronic items in the skip?
No, you can not put old electrical waste products in your skip. This includes such things as computers, cookers, tumble dryers, freezers and television sets. Electrical items can’t be discarded in your skip because they can include dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
Usually, you can keep a skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.
Is it okay to fill my skip above level load mark?
I’m afraid not. You can only fill your skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste materials up above this line will make it dangerous to transport, and you can be told to get rid of the excess waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.
What types of waste can I put in my skip?
This is amongst the most common questions people have about our skip hire service. The main thing to keep in mind is that you may fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of rubbish which can result from garden work, building work and household clearances.
Among the most typical things that we collect in our skips include soil, timber, tree cuttings, cabinets, sinks, as well as other household items.
There are some materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This can include any electronic products (fridges, TVs and laptops for example), tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all considered hazardous waste, and disposing of them has to comply with a completely different process to make sure they do not result in harm to the environment.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
The term builders skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. The name originates from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are suited to numerous residential and commercial tasks. They are the biggest size skips which can be used for weighty builders waste including top soil, stone and bricks.
