Tiptree Skip Hire FAQs
What are the different skip sizes available?
We can provide a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip ideal for small DIY tasks and house clearances. A common option for larger projects, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Tiptree companies which produce a significant quantity of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to get rid of large amounts of waste materials. Mostly, these type of skips are used for commercial applications. However, residential customers can also hire them. It is important to look at the area they will occupy, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they must only be hired for lightweight materials such as paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and concrete.
Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it dangerous to move, and you will then have to remove any rubbish higher than the level load line. This means you can not use sheets of wood, doors or any other object, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to ensure that bins are not overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure to choose the appropriate sized skip for your requirements and get in touch if you are unsure which size you require. We would be happy to help.
Do I need to be home whenever the skip is delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be there when the skip is delivered. You can then make sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip can be placed exactly where you want it. This also is applicable when you have a skip delivered to company property, particularly if gates restrict access.
Having said that, when this is not feasible, you don’t need to be concerned. Simply tell us when placing your booking, and then we will handle everything.
What happens to the rubbish?
After you have finished filling up your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling centre either in or local to Tiptree where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
Am I able to have a skip with a drop down door?
Generally speaking, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you need a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Having a skip with a drop door is primarily helpful if you are choosing a big builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow waste materials into the skip. This is not so important for mini and midi skips, since they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
The standard hire term will be 2 weeks from the delivery date. Having said that, at the time you order the skip, you can select a pick up date that is perfect for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if your skip is loaded sooner than expected, let us know, and we will collect it as quickly as possible.
We will normally be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to bear in mind this may not always be possible during busier times. Once collected, the waste will be transported to a local waste transfer facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
How long will it take to get a skip in Tiptree?
We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you have asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your booking before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will normally have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver, we strive to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery site, as failed delivery attempts can result in a fee for the wasted journey.
What things can I put in the skip?
Before you hire your skip, it is essential to make sure that the sort of waste you need to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you can throw in a skip include home items like pieces of furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You can also use a skip to throw out building and demolition rubbish, such as old bricks, dirt, stone, metals and gravel.
Some examples of prohibited items include things like electronic products, tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently must be discarded separately from general waste.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Tiptree?
Normally, it is possible to get the skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to get this done, you will need to have permission from the local council in Tiptree, which is known as a skip permit. We can order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

How much waste will a mini skip hold?
The mini skip will be the smallest size offered by skip firms and is great for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms will provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Am I able to throw away electrical items in my skip?
Electronic objects such as television sets, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so can not be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric goods should be separated from other materials. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.

How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
The builder’s skip is the most common skip hired across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builder’s skip is great for most building jobs, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 yd builders skip will be the largest size which can be used for hefty materials including soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.
