Trowbridge Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are fantastic for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furniture and old baby toys to paving slabs and concrete. With a capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make numerous journeys to the local recycling centre.
Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?
It is always best if you can be in when anyone delivers anything to your house. That allows you to make sure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be placed exactly where you want it.
The same thing goes for those who have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, should it be unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Trowbridge?
The price of hiring a skip in Trowbridge depends on the size of skip you require. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you want a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The cost will also increase if you want to have your skip placed on the road, as you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Will a skip hire company from Trowbridge deliver my skip?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work with a number of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to provide customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.
What sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Trowbridge, you have several options to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for modest domestic clearances and DIY work.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their big capacity also makes them perfect for household clearances involving bulky items like household furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they can’t be used to get rid of garden soil or concrete.
For more information about the various skip sizes available, such as measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a huge skip that can be used to get rid of large amounts of rubbish. These bins are mainly for business use but can be hired by residential clients also. However, you should have lots of room since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger in comparison to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.
As a result of the size, RORO skips should only be used for light materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suited to disposing of concrete and bricks.
Can I put electrical products in the skip?
No, you cannot throw old electronic waste products in a skip. This includes things like computers, microwaves, tumble dryers, fridges and television sets. Electrical products can’t be disposed of in your skip as they can contain dangerous materials and components.
Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
Do you deliver skips across Wiltshire?
We offer a UK wide skip hire and recycling service using a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Trowbridge, Chippenham, Swindon, Ludgershall or any other site in Wiltshire, we can help.
Is it okay to load the skip higher than the level load line?
You must not fill the skip past the level load line. When you load it above the tip of this mark, it means your skip is not secure to move, and you could be asked to remove the excess waste prior to it being collected.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
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 rubbish will be separated into different waste streams, including timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How long can I keep the skip for?
Normally, you can have a skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you don’t need to hurry through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is loaded before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.
Will my skip come with a drop door?
For anyone who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is made for getting rid of heavy building and construction materials, as it can be pushed in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop down door, though they are less common. The reason being these sizes are typically small enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip which has a drop door is provided.
If I would like a skip on the road in Trowbridge, will I need to get a permit?
In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you want the skip to be situated on land outside of your company or residence, you must get authorisation from the local authority in Trowbridge, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we would be glad to arrange this for you, so it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for your license, plus you should know before booking that obtaining the permit will often take up to 2 working days.
How soon can you deliver a skip in Trowbridge?
When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We will usually provide a next day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (such as a road), you must gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
Due to many factors that can impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it arriving within a morning or afternoon slot.
What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Trowbridge?
This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip will be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or council property (such as the road). Then, select the date you would like the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment with our secure online payment platform. That is it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Trowbridge on the day you have selected.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The term builder’s skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yd skip. The name originates from the fact that these are the most common sizes that are hired by builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are perfect for numerous household and commercial projects. They are the biggest size skips that can be used for hefty builders waste like dirt, rubble and gravel.
Can I throw all sorts of rubbish in a skip?
This is amongst the most common questions people have about our service. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you can fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of rubbish that can result from garden projects, construction work and property clearances.
Among the most typical things which we collect in skips include soil, wood, hedge trimmings, kitchen cabinets, sinks, and other household objects.
However, there are some items that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This includes any electronic items (fridges, televisions or printers for example), car tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them must comply with a completely different process to ensure they do not cause damage to the environment.
