Tow Law Skip Hire FAQs

If I want a skip on the road in Tow Law, will I need a permit?

Normally, it is possible to get your skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to get this done, you must get permission from the local authority in Tow Law, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for this license, and it will sometimes take 24-2 days for them to authorise this.

Where will my waste go once the skip is picked up?

After you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility in or local to Tow Law where we will separate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

Is it okay to fill my skip above the top?

Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it unsafe to transport, and you may have to remove any items above the level load mark. This means that you cannot use sheets of wood, doors or any other item, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal responsibility to make sure that containers aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure you choose the appropriate size of skip to meet your requirements and get in contact if you’re uncertain which size is best. We will be happy to help.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ensure your skip will be delivered when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the following day.

Although we are not able to promise a precise delivery time, we will do our best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You will need to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will normally incur a charge for the wasted trip.

How much waste will a builders skip hold?

As the name suggests, a builders skip means the size of skip most commonly hired for building projects. There are usually two sizes that can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which can be used to get rid of substantial volumes of construction and demolition materials, such as garden soil, concrete and rock.

Although labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for a number of other residential and commercial waste disposal jobs.

Am I able to throw electronic products in the skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods must be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electrical products including washing machines, televisions, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.

Will the skip have a drop door?

Using a skip with a drop door can make loading waste into it much easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste like soil or concrete, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make disposing of large bulky items like furniture much easier as well.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, but it will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.

How do I hire a skip?

We have created our online booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to enter your postcode to check out all the different skip sizes we can supply in Tow Law. Select the right size to meet your requirements and give us the details of where and when you want your skip to be delivered. You then make payment through the secure payment platform, and we’ll send you an email to verify your order as soon as your order is complete!

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips come in a wide range of sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is good for small household tasks.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a fantastic option for garden shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to undertake, the builder’s skip could be the most suitable option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label implies, they are the most common sizes used by builders for construction waste, including soil and hardcore. But they can equally well be hired for household rubbish such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.

We also offer 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. To get more info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What things can I put in my skip?

It is possible to put a wide array of rubbish into your skip. This can include timber, bathroom tiles, plastics or rubble from a property clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, top soil and stone from garden work is permitted too. Cupboards and worktops from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also go in the skip.

There are, however, things that you can’t put in a skip because of the potential environmental or health risk they may cause.

You cannot throw in your freezer, television or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items incorporate hazardous components in one form or another. They need to be discarded separately from general rubbish.

Should you need hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to organise an independent collection for this waste. Please email for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

How long can I hire the skip for?

You can normally hire the skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, you have the choice of giving a preferred collection time when placing your order.

Otherwise, simply let us know when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the following working day.

It can take a bit longer to collect your skip during busy periods, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

If you operate a company in Tow Law and wish to dispose of large quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers that can be hired.

As the name implies, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike standard skips, which are lifted using chains.

What size is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are ideal for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.

They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and old baby toys to paving blocks and soil. With a total capacity of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you needing to make numerous journeys to your local recycling centre.

How much does skip hire in Tow Law cost?

This is determined by the size you will need and if you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the lowest priced option. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings. To receive an immediate quotation for skip hire in Tow Law, simply enter your postcode into the search box above.

Do I have to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?

No, you don’t need to be at home when we deliver the skip. As long as we can gain access to where you need it positioned, we will take care of everything.

When you are not likely to be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when placing the order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be located on a particular area of your driveway. Or you may need to ensure the skip doesn’t obstruct access to your garage.

No matter what the case might be, provide the information when you place your order, and we will ensure the directions are passed on to the lorry driver.
