Torpoint Skip Hire FAQs

What will happen to the waste in the skip?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into several different waste streams, including stone, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

How long will it take to get a skip in Torpoint?

We will ensure your skip is delivered on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the very next day.

Although we can’t promise a precise delivery time, we will do our best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

It is important to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will often incur a charge for the wasted journey.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Torpoint?

Our goal is to provide the cheapest skip hire service in Torpoint. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have your skip placed on the road or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the added expense of a skip permit.

What different sizes do skips come in?

We can provide a full-range of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for modest DIY jobs and household clearances. A common option for more substantial tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Torpoint firms which produce a large amount of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Hiring a skip shouldn’t be difficult. This is why we have made the order process as easy as possible.

After your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

What skip sizes have got a drop down door?

The vast majority of skips can be delivered with a drop door, making them easy to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the skip, particularly with weighty materials, such as garden soil and rubble, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, such as furniture.

Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?

No, you do not have to be home when we deliver your skip. As long as we can access where you want it located, we will manage everything.

In the event you will not be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you place the order. For instance, you may prefer the skip to be positioned on a particular side of your driveway. Or you might want to be sure that the skip does not block use of your garage.

Whatever the case might be, provide the information when you place your order, and then we will ensure your instructions will be passed to the delivery driver.

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

The term builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The label stems from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These big skips are suited to numerous residential and business jobs. These are the largest sizes that can be used for heavy builders waste including dirt, stone and bricks.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge container that can be used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These bins are predominantly for business use but can be hired by domestic customers also. Having said that, you should have lots of space because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger when compared to the average skip you will see on the roadside.

Due to the size, these skips should only be provided for light-weight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and rubble.

Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Torpoint?

This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if your skip will be on your private property, like a driveway or inside your business premises.

If you have to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, and we can make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can have your skip on private property, it will save you some pounds.

Am I allowed to dispose of all types of rubbish in my skip?

Your skip can be used to get rid of lots of different types of waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and processing a multitude of materials generated from building jobs, garden projects and household tidy-ups. A few examples of permitted waste materials can include:

  • Pieces of furniture
  • Hedge cuttings
  • Soil
  • Bricks and rubble
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Cabinets and units

Many different waste types are usually allowed, so whether you would like to discard furniture, plastics, wood or unwanted toys, we can usually take your waste away.

The volume and materials you put in the skip may vary according to the size skip you have chosen. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you wish to dispose of top soil and gravel, as an example, the largest size you will be allowed to use is the 8 yard builders skip.

Are there any items which I can’t throw in the skip?

There are several materials you will not be allowed to throw out in the skip. The reason for this is that these items contain hazardous components which can cause damage to the environment. They could also be damaging to human health, so they need to be discarded separately within UK law.

Some examples of the goods that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

You can typically have your skip for up to 2 weeks from the date of delivery. You are able to provide a preferred collection day at the time you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have loaded the skip, and we will prepare the collection. Generally, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer during hectic periods.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some household waste, the mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to deal with numerous tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be placed on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.

Although most commonly chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.

Who will deliver my skip?

Can I stack up the waste in my skip?

It is very important not to overload your skip, as you risk being asked to take out excess waste prior to it being picked up. No matter what size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, as moving an overloaded container can be dangerous, as rubbish could fall and cause injuries or damage to other people.

To prevent this issue, please be sure you hire a skip size suited to your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full and you have more waste to get rid of, we are happy to organise an exchange.

Can I throw electrical products in my skip?

Electric powered objects like television sets, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore should not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic objects need to be separated from other materials. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.

Other areas covered include Hayle, Newquay, Bodmin, Callington, Penryn, Newlyn, Higher Larrick and Padstow.
