Below are some of the common questions we get relating to our skip hire and recycling service.
Tiverton Skip Hire FAQs
Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods must be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered goods like cookers, monitors, kettles, computers and even hair straighteners.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container used to dispose of huge amounts of waste materials. Primarily, these type of containers are used for commercial purposes. Having said that, domestic customers can also order them. You should think about the space they occupy, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be used for light materials like paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of dirt and stone.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste gets separated into a number of waste streams, which includes timber, metals and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the waste is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Will you deliver to other areas in Devon?
In addition to delivering skips to Tiverton, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Devon. Through our network of regional and national skip hire and recycling companies, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business in Tiverton, Totnes or Ivybridge, we have got you covered.
How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
For those who have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, a mini skip may be the ideal solution. What size is identified as a mini skip varies from business to business, according to what sizes they supply.
The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 yard container as their smallest option. The cost depends on the actual size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are fantastic for household work like modest DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you need it put on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
You can usually keep a skip for up to a fortnight from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the pick up will be as convenient as possible, there is the option of giving a preferred collection date when you place your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in many cases, it will be the following working day.
It can take a little longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, but we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Tiverton?
The price of hiring a skip in Tiverton will depend on the size of skip you require. The cheapest option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also be more if you need to have a skip placed on the highway, because you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Tiverton?
Generally, it is possible to get the skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But in order to do this, you must have approval from your local authority in Tiverton, which is called a skip permit. We are able to organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for the license, and it may sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We can usually offer you a following day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (like a street), you need to obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.
Due to many factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it to be delivered in a AM or PM slot.
What sizes do skips come in?
We offer a complete selection of skip capacities to residential and commercial customers all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the enormous 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Listed below are the different sized skips you can choose from, with a rough guide to how much rubbish each skip can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags

For more information about our selection of skips, including measurements and the waste materials they can be used for, check out our guide to skip sizes.
Will the skip come with a drop down door?
Generally, nearly all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon skip size, availability and location. If you want a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip with a drop door is mainly useful if you are choosing a large builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow your waste into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, because they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Is it ok to pile up waste in my skip?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it dangerous to transport, and you will probably be asked to empty any rubbish above the level load mark. This also means that you cannot use sheets of timber, doors or another item, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty to make sure that bins aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure to choose the correct size of skip to meet your requirements and get in contact if you’re unsure which size you need. We would be glad to help.
Who will deliver my skip?
To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work together with a wide range of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we can provide customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The name originates from the fact that these are the most typical sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are fantastic for a wide variety of domestic and commercial projects. These are the biggest skip sizes that you can use for heavy builders waste like dirt, stone and concrete.
Am I able to throw all types of waste in the skip?
It is possible to throw a variety of waste types in the skip. This includes timber, tile, plastics or rubble from a house clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, soil and rock from garden tasks are allowed also. Dated cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be discarded in a skip.
There are, however, some items that you can’t put in a skip due to the potential environment or health risks they can cause.
You cannot throw in your fridge freezer, printer or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things include hazardous materials in one kind or another. They must be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
If you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to arrange a separate service for this waste. Feel free to contact us for further information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
How can I order a skip?
We have created our booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first step is to enter your address to see all the different skip sizes we are able to provide in Tiverton. Select the right size to meet your needs and enter the details of where and when you would like the skip to be delivered. You can then make payment with the secure payment platform, and we will send you an email to verify the order once your order is complete!
Do I need to be there when the skip is going to be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be there on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can make sure the lorry has full access and that the skip will be situated exactly where you need it. The same is applicable if you have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly if gates limit access.
Having said that, if this isn’t possible, you do not have to worry. Just tell us when making your order, and then we will handle the rest.
