Watchet Skip Hire FAQs

What types of waste materials can I put in the skip?

A skip may be used to discard a variety of types of waste. We are experienced in collecting and processing a wide variety of materials from building work, garden projects and household tidy-ups. Examples of permitted waste materials include:

  • Home furnishings
  • Garden trimmings
  • Soil
  • Bricks
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Most waste materials are generally permitted, and so whether you wish to get rid of metals, plastics, timber or textiles, we can usually take your waste away.

The volume and things you put in the skip can vary depending on which size skip you have hired. Skips have a weight limit for safety. So if you need to get rid of top soil and gravel, as an example, the largest size container you would be allowed to hire would be the 8 yard builders skip.

What type of materials am I not allowed to put in the skip?

There are several waste materials that you will not be permitted to throw out in your skip. The reason behind this is that some goods incorporate hazardous elements which can cause damage to the environment. They may also be damaging to human health, and so they have to be disposed of separately within UK law.

A few of the goods that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer screens
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Will you deliver skips across Somerset?

Yes, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skips to areas across Somerset, including Watchet, Taunton, Castle Cary and Weston-Super-Mare. So wherever you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

How many different skip sizes are available?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Watchet, you will have various sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for small household clearances and DIY work.

The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also makes them perfect for house tidy ups including large items such as pieces of furniture and beds.

We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only suited to lightweight materials, so they cannot be used to dispose of garden soil or stone.

To get more details about the different skip sizes offered, such as measurements, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container used to dispose of huge amounts of waste materials. Predominantly, these skips are hired for business applications. Having said that, domestic customers can also order them. You have to consider the space they will occupy, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be utilised for light-weight waste such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and hardcore.

How long can I keep the skip for?

Our standard hire period will be 14 days from the delivery date. However, at the time you book your skip, you can provide a pick up date that is best for you. Obviously, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if your skip is full earlier than anticipated, contact us, and we will pick it up at the earliest opportunity.

We will usually make collections within 48 hours. But, it is important to bear in mind this may not be possible at busier periods. Once collected, the skip will be transported to your local waste recycling station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

How fast can you deliver a skip to Watchet?

When your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a day that best suits you. We can usually offer you a next day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, as to be on public property (for example a road), you must obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.

Due to numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it turning up within a AM or PM slot.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Watchet?

In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need the skip to be placed on land outside of your business or home, you need to secure authorisation from the local council in Watchet, which is called a permit. If necessary, we will be happy to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for the road permit, and you should be aware before ordering that obtaining the licence can often take up to two working days.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?

Electrical objects such as television sets, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore cannot be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric items must be segregated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly way.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is probably the most frequent skip used in the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builder’s skip is ideal for most building tasks, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 yd builder’s skip is the largest size that you can use for hefty waste like garden soil, concrete, rock and gravel.

Do I have to be home whenever the skip is delivered?

No, you do not have to be home when we deliver your skip. So long as we can gain access to where you want it positioned, we are able to manage it all.

In the event you are not likely to be at home, simply let us know any relevant delivery instructions when booking your order. For instance, you may want the skip to be located on a particular part of your property. Alternatively, you may want to ensure the skip does not obstruct use of your garage.

Whatever the situation might be, simply tell us when ordering, and we will make sure your directions will be passed on to the delivery driver.

Which size skips will have a drop down door?

Nearly all skip sizes can be provided with a drop door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the bin, especially with weighty materials, like dirt and gravel, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky objects, like household furniture.

Will a Watchet skip hire company deliver my skip?

We utilise a large network of both regional and national skip hire companies to deliver skips to our customers in Watchet and the rest of the UK. Our partner firms are approved and evaluated to make sure they match our standards for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

How much waste can a mini skip hold?

If you are looking for a low cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to tackle many tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.

Although most frequently hired by residential customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.

What will happen to the waste?

The waste in the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling station. Here the contents will be sorted by machines and also by hand into numerous waste streams, such as metal, plastics, hardcore and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to increase the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.

Am I allowed to load the skip higher than the level load line?

It is essential to not overload a skip. You can not pass the level load mark that is shown along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it becomes very unsafe to transport. This means that if you overload the skip, you might be required to take off the excess rubbish. No matter how safe you believe the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This is unsafe and is not allowed.
