Verwood Skip Hire FAQs
Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Verwood?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need the skip to be placed on land outside of your company or house, you must get permission from your local authority in Verwood, which is called a skip permit. If required, we would be glad to organise this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for the skip license, and you should be aware before ordering that securing the licence will often take up to two working days.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
Skips are available in a variety of different sizes to match various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is good for small residential tasks.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent choice for garden clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more substantial waste disposal task to undertake, the builder’s skip might be the best choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name suggests, these are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for building waste, including clay and stone. However they can just as well be hired for household waste such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.
We can also supply 10-16 cubic yard skips and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
Can you deliver skips across Dorset?
Along with delivering skips and containers to Verwood, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Dorset. Through a network of local and national skip hire and recycling businesses, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business in Verwood, Gillingham or Wareham, we have got it covered.
Will the skip come with a drop down door?
The vast majority of containers can be supplied with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the bin, especially with weighty materials, like garden soil and concrete, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, such as furniture.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be there when anyone delivers something to your home. That allows you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be positioned just where you need it.
The same thing goes if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
What waste materials am I allowed to put in a skip?
This is amongst the most common questions people have about hiring a skip. What is important to keep in mind is that you may load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of rubbish which can come from garden projects, construction work and house clearances.
Among the most common things that we find in skips include soil, timber, bush trimmings, kitchen units, sinks, as well as other household products.
However, there are some things that you are not allowed to put in the skip. For example, any electronic objects (refrigerators, televisions and printers for example), old car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and so getting rid of them needs to adhere to an entirely different procedure to make sure they don’t result in harm to the environment.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are ideal for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furniture and old toys to paving slabs and garden soil. Having a total capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make several visits to your local recycling centre.
Will a skip hire company from Verwood deliver my skip?
We utilise a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire companies to supply skips to our customers in Verwood and the rest of the country. All of our partner skip companies are verified and tested to guarantee they satisfy our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
Is it ok to fill my skip above the level load mark?
It is important to not overload your skip, as you risk being told to take off excess waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of the size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, since moving an overloaded skip can be dangerous, as waste could fall and lead to personal injury or damage to others.
To avoid this problem, please be sure you order a skip size appropriate for your waste removal needs. If your skip is full but you have extra rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.
How long can I keep the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. In most cases, this gives you plenty of time to load your skip. However, if you need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, should you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your pick up. Just contact us once you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
After you have finished filling up your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste recycling centre in or local to Verwood where we will sort the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The term builder’s skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The term stems from the fact that these are the most typical sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are suited to numerous types of domestic and commercial projects. These are the biggest size skips that you can use for hefty builders waste including garden soil, stone and concrete.

Can I throw electrical products in my skip?
Electric powered objects such as television sets, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and so cannot be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered objects need to be separated from other materials. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.
