How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most often hired for building and construction projects. There are typically two skip sizes which can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that can be used to get rid of significant volumes of building and demolition materials, like garden soil, concrete and bricks.

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

What is the cost of skip hire in Wantage?

Our goal is to offer the cheapest skip hire service in Wantage. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip that you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you need to have your skip positioned on the road or other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the extra cost of the skip permit.

Is it okay to fill the skip higher than the top?

You should not fill up the skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it up over the tip of this level, it means your skip is not safe and secure to move, and you could be asked to take off the excess waste before it can be collected.

How can I order a skip?

Ordering a skip in Wantage with us is very easy. Select the skip size you require and input a couple of details about where and when you would like your skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then arrange to have your skip delivered.

Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?

No, you can not dispose of old or broken electrical waste items in your skip. This can include things like computers, cookers, tumble dryers, fridges and tv sets. Electronic products can’t be thrown in the skip since they can include hazardous materials and components.

Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.

What happens to the waste in the skip?

The waste in your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer centre. Here the waste will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into different waste materials, such as soil, cardboard, hardcore and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

How large is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are fantastic for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them ideal for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furniture and old baby toys to paving slabs and bricks. With a total capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make numerous journeys to your local recycling centre.

How long can I hire a skip for?

The standard hire term will be 14 days from the delivery date. However, when you book the skip, you can tell us a pick up date that is best for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is fully loaded earlier than expected, contact us, and we will pick it up as quickly as possible.

Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to remember that this may not always be possible during busier periods. Once collected, your skip will be transported to your local waste recycling station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can be sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip can be placed precisely where you need it. The same applies for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly when gates restrict access.

Having said that, when this is not possible, you don’t have to be concerned. Just tell us when you are making your order, and we will take care of everything.

How fast can you deliver a skip to Wantage?

We can in most cases deliver skips to Wantage the following working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking platform offers you a variety of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like a skip delivered ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.

How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you have a company in Wantage and want to get rid of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a great choice. Available in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that can be hired.

As the name implies, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike regular skips, which are picked up by using chains.

If I require a skip on the road in Wantage, will I need a permit?

This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only require a permit when it is positioned on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if the skip is on your private property, like a drive or inside your business premises.

Should you have to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place your skip on your own land, you will save a few pounds.

What are the different skip sizes available?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Wantage, you will have multiple sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard container, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for small house clearances and DIY tasks.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also means they are perfect for household clear ups involving large objects like furniture and beds.

We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for those with even larger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only suited to lightweight waste materials, so they cannot be used to get rid of soil or concrete.

For additional details about the different sizes available, including measurements, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.

Will you deliver skips across Oxfordshire?

Certainly, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skips to areas across Oxfordshire, such as Wantage, Wallingford, Woodstock and Bicester. So regardless of where you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

Can I have a skip that has a drop down door?

Having a skip with a drop door will make filling waste into it so much easier. This is particularly true with heavy materials like soil or hardcore, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of big bulky items like pieces of furniture much easier also.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, but it will sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a door is needed, and we will do our very best to provide this.

What can I put in the skip?

Your skip may be used to get rid of many different types of waste. We are experienced in picking up and handling numerous materials generated from construction work, garden landscaping and home clearances. Some examples of permitted waste products include:

  • Household furniture
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Soil
  • Bricks and rubble
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Cabinets and units

Most waste materials are generally permitted, so whether you need to discard furniture, plastics, timber or fabric, we can usually take your waste away.

The quantity and items you throw into your skip will vary depending on the size skip you have ordered. All skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So to be able to dispose of garden soil and rubble, for example, the biggest size container you will be allowed to hire will be the 8 yard builders skip.

Are there any items which I can’t throw in the skip?

There are some waste items which you are not allowed to throw out in the skip. The reason behind this is that these items include hazardous elements that may be harmful to the environment. They can also be harmful to human health, and so they need to be disposed of separately within UK legislation.

Some of the goods that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Other areas covered include Wallingford, Woodstock, Bicester, Carterton, Faringdon, Watlington, Burford and Charlbury.
