What is classed as a builder’s skip?

The term builders skip can mean two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The term comes from the fact that they are the most typical sizes ordered by builders and tradespeople.

Generally speaking, the majority of skips can be provided with a hinged door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you want a drop door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip with a drop door is mainly useful when you are choosing a big builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow your rubbish into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini skips, as they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

2 cubic yards is considered the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard skip for their smallest option. The cost is dependent on the actual size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are good for household jobs including modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you need it put on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

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

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container used to dispose of significant amounts of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these type of skips are hired for commercial applications. However, household clients may also order them. You should look at the area they take up, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be used for lightweight materials like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and concrete.

What types of waste am I able to dispose of in a skip?

You can throw a variety of rubbish into your skip. This can include timber, tile, metal or rubble from a house clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, dirt and rock from garden tasks are permitted also. Dated cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be thrown in a skip.

However, there are things that you can’t put in a skip due to the potential environmental or health risk they might trigger.

You can not throw in your freezer, television or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items incorporate hazardous materials in one type or another. They should be disposed of separately from your normal waste.

If you want hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to organise an independent service for this waste. Please email us for further information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

Is it okay to fill my skip above level load mark?

Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it unsafe to transport, and you may be asked to remove any materials above the level load mark. This means that you cannot make use of sheets of wood, doors or any other object, since this will increase the size of the skip. We have a legal duty to make sure that containers are not overfilled or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure you hire the correct size of skip for your requirements and get in contact if you are uncertain which size you require. We will be glad to help.

Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?

No, you can not throw old or unwanted electrical waste items in a skip. This includes such things as laptops or computers, microwaves, tumble dryers, freezers and tv sets. These items can’t be discarded in your skip because they can contain hazardous materials and components.
