Totton Skip Hire FAQs
Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Totton?
In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need the skip to be situated on land outside of your company or residence, you will have to obtain authorisation from your local authority in Totton, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we would be happy to organise this for you, therefore it’s one less thing to worry about. The council does charge a fee for the skip license, plus you should know before placing your order that securing the permit can often take up to two working days.
Is it ok to fill the skip above level load line?
No. You can only load the skip up to the level load line. Loading waste up above this line will make it dangerous to move, and you can be asked to take away the surplus waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or any other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.
Who will deliver my skip?
We utilise a network of both local and national skip hire businesses to supply skips to our clients in Totton and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner businesses are verified and evaluated to make certain they match our standards for price, service, recycling and reliability.
Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric products have to be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This can include all electric products such as washing machines, monitors, kettles, computers and even hair straighteners.
How large is the mini skip?
When you have a small quantity of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip may be the ideal option. What size is known as a mini skip is different from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they supply.
2 cubic yards is the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. Price depends on the actual size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for residential jobs such as small DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Totton?
Our aim is to provide you with the lowest priced skip hire service in Totton. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you wish to have a skip positioned on the street or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the additional cost of a skip permit.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be in when the skip is delivered. You can then make sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip is located precisely where you need it. The same is true for those who have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates limit access.
However, if that isn’t achievable, you do not need to be concerned. Simply tell us when you are placing your booking, and then we will handle everything.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge industrial scale skips that are used mainly in the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for businesses that generate significant amounts of waste.
What is the size of a builders skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most commonly supplied for building and construction work. There are generally two skip sizes which can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that can be used to get rid of significant quantities of construction and demolition materials, including soil, rubble and stone.
Although they are branded a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for a number of other domestic and commercial waste disposal tasks.
What size skips have a drop door?
Using a skip which has a drop door can make filling waste into the skip so much easier. This is especially the case with heavy materials like garden soil and hardcore, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away large bulky objects like pieces of furniture a lot easier too.
Most skip containers can be provided with a drop door, although it will sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.
What things can I put in my skip?
You can throw a variety of rubbish into the skip. This can include wood, bathroom tiles, plastics or bricks from a house clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, top soil and stone from garden work is permitted too. Dated units from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in your skip.
However, there are some items that you are not allowed to put in a skip because of the potential environmental or health risks they might cause.
You can not throw out your fridge freezer, computer monitor or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these items consist of hazardous materials in one kind or another. They must be discarded separately from your normal rubbish.
If you want hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to schedule an independent service for this material. Feel free to email for more details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
What are the different skip sizes available?
We are able to offer a wide range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for modest DIY projects and house clearances. A common choice for more substantial projects, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Totton firms which have a large quantity of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Where will you take the waste from my skip?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into various waste streams, such as timber, metals, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can in most cases keep a skip for as long as 14 days from the delivery date. You can provide a preferred collection day at the time you place your order. Alternatively, you can let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will arrange the collection. Generally, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during hectic periods.
