Warminster Skip Hire FAQs
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Warminster. We utilize a network of both local and nationwide providers to allow us to offer our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully vetted to be sure they meet the high standards we demand in terms of service, price and environmental performance.
What size is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to deal with many jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be located on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit.
Although most frequently hired by household customers, the mini skip can also tackle small commercial jobs.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Warminster?
This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a permit if it is placed on public property, like 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 within your company premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position the skip on your own property, you will save a few pounds.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container used to transport huge quantities of waste materials. Predominantly, these skips are hired for business purposes. Having said that, domestic customers may also use them. You will need to look at the area they will take up, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be used for light-weight waste like plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and rubble.
How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?
The term builders skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. The name comes from the fact that they are the most typical sizes ordered by builders and tradespeople.
These substantial skips are perfect for a wide variety of residential and business tasks. These are the largest sizes that you can use for hefty builders waste such as top soil, stone and gravel.
Am I allowed to throw all types of rubbish in a skip?
You can use your skip to dispose of many different waste types. We are experienced in collecting and handling a multitude of materials generated from construction jobs, garden projects and house clearances. A few examples of allowed waste types include things like:
- Household furniture
- Tree trimmings
- Garden soil
- Bathroom sinks
- Cabinets and units
Most waste materials are allowed, and so whether you wish to throw out metals, plastic materials, timber or old toys, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The volume and items you put in the skip can vary according to the size skip you have ordered. Skips have a weight limit for safety. So if you need to discard garden soil and bricks, as an example, the biggest size container you will be allowed to use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Are there items that I can’t discard in the skip?
There are some waste materials that you will not be allowed to put in your skip. The reason behind this is that these products incorporate hazardous elements which could be harmful to the environment. They can even be damaging to human health, so they must be discarded separately within UK laws.
Some examples of the items that are restricted include:
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- PC monitors
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be at home when your skip is going to be delivered, but it will help. Being home whenever the skip is being delivered means that you can ensure the lorry is given full access and that the skip is positioned precisely where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is being hired to a business property, we will appreciate your support during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, when you can’t be around during delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask you to let us know when you book your order, and we will organise everything from there.
Where does my waste be taken to when the skip is picked up?
The rubbish in the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer facility. Here the contents will be sorted by machines and by hand into numerous waste materials, including soil, paper, hardcore and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, this will give you plenty of time to fill the skip. However, if you need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, in the event you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Warminster?
Our goal is to deliver the cheapest skip hire service in Warminster. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you wish to have a skip positioned on the highway or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the added expense of the skip permit.
Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old or unwanted electrical waste items in your skip. This can include such things as printers, hobs, tumble dryers, freezers and tv sets. Electric objects can’t be thrown in the skip since they can contain dangerous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
Is it ok to pile up waste in my skip?
It is essential not to overfill your skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is indicated along the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it becomes very dangerous to move. This means that if you overload your skip, you might be asked to take away the excess waste. However safe you think the skip to be, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This is dangerous and is therefore not allowed.
What size skips do you deliver?
We can supply a full range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip perfect for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A common option for larger sized jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Warminster firms which generate a big quantity of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Can you deliver to other areas in Wiltshire?
As well as delivering skips and containers to Warminster, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Wiltshire. By utilising a network of regional and national skip businesses, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering in Warminster, Highworth or Bradford-on-Avon, we have got it covered.
Which size skips will have a drop door?
The majority of skips can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the container, especially with heavy materials, such as dirt and rubble, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky items, such as household furniture.
