Uttoxeter Skip Hire FAQs
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
Our regular hire time frame is 2 weeks from your date of delivery. However, at the time you book the skip, you can provide a collection date that is perfect for you. Obviously, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if the skip is fully loaded sooner than expected, let us know, and we will get it picked up as quickly as possible.
We can normally be out to get your skip within 48 hours. But, it is important to bear in mind this is not always the case at busy periods. Once collected, the waste will be taken to a local waste recycling facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Am I able to get rid of electrical items in my skip?
No, you cannot put old or broken electronic waste items in a skip. This can include things like printers, hobs, washing machines, refrigerators and television sets. Electric items can’t be thrown in the skip since they can have hazardous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
Who will deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in Uttoxeter and the rest of the country. Each of our partner skip hire companies are approved and evaluated to guarantee they satisfy our expectations for cost, service, recycling and reliability.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to transport huge amounts of waste materials. Primarily, these type of skips are hired for commercial uses. Having said that, domestic customers can also use them. It is important to consider the space they take up, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be utilised for light waste such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and concrete.
How long does it take to get a skip in Uttoxeter?
We can in most cases supply skips to Uttoxeter the following working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking program gives you a number of delivery dates to select from. So whether you want a skip to arrive ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
How can I hire a skip?
Ordering a skip in Uttoxeter through us is incredibly easy. Decide on the skip size you require and then input a few details about when and where you would like your skip delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then schedule to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
If I need a skip on the road in Uttoxeter, will I need a permit?
This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only require a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if your skip will be on private property, such as a drive or on 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 while completing the order process, so we can make the necessary arrangements with your local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate your skip on private land, it will save you a few pounds.
Can I get a skip which has a drop door?
Generally speaking, the majority of skips can be provided with a hinged door, depending on size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful if choosing a big builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials directly into the skip. This is not so important for mini skips, because they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?
It usually is best if you can be there when anyone delivers anything to your property. You can then ensure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be placed exactly where you want it.
The same applies for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, should it be unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
Where will the waste be taken to once the skip is picked up?
Once you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and get it. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Uttoxeter where we separate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
What sort of waste am I able to put in a skip?
You can put a wide array of waste into your skip. This can include timber, floor tiles, plastics or bricks from a property clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, dirt and stone from garden work is permitted as well. Cupboards and worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be thrown in your skip.
However, there are some materials that can’t be put in a skip a result of the potential ecological or health risks they might trigger.
You are unable to throw in your freezer, printer or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things include hazardous elements in one form or another. They need to be disposed of separately from normal waste.
If you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to schedule a separate service for this waste. Feel free to get in touch for further details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
How large is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are fantastic for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furnishings and old baby toys to paving blocks and concrete. Having a capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make several journeys to your local recycling centre.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We are able to offer a full range of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip suitable for modest DIY tasks and household clearances. A popular choice for more substantial jobs, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Uttoxeter businesses which have a significant volume of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most frequently used for construction and demolition jobs. There are generally two skip sizes which can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that can be used to get rid of significant volumes of construction and demolition materials, including dirt, concrete and bricks.
Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for a number of other domestic and commercial waste disposal jobs.
How much will skip hire in Uttoxeter cost?
Our aim is to deliver the cheapest skip hire service in Uttoxeter. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you need to have a skip placed on the street or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the additional expense of a skip permit.
Will you deliver skips across Staffordshire?
Certainly, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skips to areas across Staffordshire, such as Uttoxeter, Fazeley, Cannock and Kidsgrove. So wherever you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
Can I stack up waste in my skip?
You must not fill up your skip beyond the level load line. When you fill it over the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be safe to transport, and you could be asked to remove the excess rubbish before it can be collected.
