Thornbury Skip Hire FAQs
Do you deliver to other areas in Gloucestershire?
Absolutely. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we are able to deliver skips to household and industrial customers across Gloucestershire and elsewhere in the UK.
What skip sizes have got a drop down door?
Generally, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop down door, depending on size, availability and area. If you require a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Having a skip with a drop door is primarily helpful if you are hiring a large builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow waste into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, since they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What sort of waste can I throw in a skip?
It is possible to load the skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly produced from loft clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include wood, top soil, stone, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you throw in your skip will depend on which skip size you have ordered, because there is a weight limit. For example, when you are using the skip for heavy construction wastes including stone or soil, the biggest size you could use is an 8 cubic yard.
Some materials cannot be disposed of in your skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
We provide a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip excellent for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A popular option for bigger jobs, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Thornbury firms which have a large amount of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Who will deliver my skip?
To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work with a number of local and national companies. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.
Can I fill the skip higher than the side?
It is important never to overload a skip, as you risk being required to take off surplus waste before it can be collected. Regardless of the size you hire, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since transporting an overloaded container is dangerous, as rubbish could drop and lead to injuries or damage to others.
To avoid this problem, please ensure that you hire a skip size suited to your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full but you have extra rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets sorted into a range of waste streams, including stone, soil and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste is recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
When will my skip be delivered?
We can typically deliver skips to Thornbury the next working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking system will provide you with a range of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you need a skip delivered asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
Am I able to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
Electric powered products including television sets, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so should not be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic items have to be separated from other waste. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
You can typically have the skip for up to 2 weeks from the date of delivery. You can give a preferred collection date at the time you place your order. Alternatively, you can tell us after you have finished with the skip, and we will organise your collection. Normally, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer over busy periods.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact size offered by skip firms and is perfect for small DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms provide a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Thornbury?
In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want the skip to be located on land outside of your business or residence, you must obtain permission from your local authority in Thornbury, which is referred to as a permit. If necessary, we will be glad to arrange this on your behalf, so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council does charge a fee for your license, and you should be aware before ordering that obtaining the permit can often take up to two working days.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to get rid of significant quantities of waste materials. Generally, these containers are used for commercial uses. Having said that, residential customers may also hire them. It is essential to look at the area they will occupy, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be hired for light waste like paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and concrete.
What is a builders skip?
The builder’s skip is probably the most frequent skip that is ordered throughout the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is fantastic for most building and construction tasks, which is where the name stems from.
The 8 yard builders skip will be the largest option which can be used for heavy waste including soil, concrete, stone and rubble.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be in when the skip is delivered. You can then ensure the lorry has complete access and that the skip is situated exactly where you need it. The same is applicable when you have a skip delivered to business property, especially when gates limit access.
Having said that, if that is not achievable, you do not need to be concerned. Just tell us when making your order, and then we will handle the rest.
What is the cost of skip hire in Thornbury?
The cost of getting a skip in Thornbury is determined by the size of skip you require. The least expensive option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you require a bigger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also increase if you need to have a skip positioned on the highway, since you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
