Wednesbury Skip Hire FAQs
Can I stack up the waste in my skip?
It is vital to never overfill your skip. You should not pass the level load line shown on the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it can be very unsafe to transport. Which means that if you overfill your skip, you could be asked to remove the excess waste. Regardless of how safe you think the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This is hazardous and is therefore not allowed.
What is a mini skip?
For those who have a small amount of rubbish to get rid of, a mini skip might be the best option. What size is called a mini skip differs from company to company, depending on what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to have a 3 yard container for their smallest option. The price is based on the specific size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are best for domestic jobs like modest DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you want it put on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
How do you hire a skip online?
We have designed our booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. The first step is to type in your delivery postcode to check out all the different skip sizes we can provide in Wednesbury. Pick the best size to meet your requirements and provide the details of when and where you would like your skip delivered. You can then make payment with our secure payment system, and we will send an email to verify the order as soon as your order is complete!
Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not need to be at home when we deliver your skip. As long as we can access where you need it located, we will manage it all.
In the event you will not be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when booking your order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be positioned on a particular part of your driveway. Or you may want to be sure that the skip doesn’t prevent use of your garage.
Whatever the situation might be, let us know when you place your order, and then we will make sure your instructions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
How long will it take to get a skip in Wednesbury?
When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We will normally give you a next day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (like a highway), you need to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
Due to numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it to be delivered in a morning or afternoon slot.
Will a skip hire company from Wednesbury deliver my skip?
We utilise a large network of both local and national skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our clients in Wednesbury and the rest of the country. Our partner companies are approved and evaluated to guarantee they satisfy our expectations for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
Can I get rid of electrical items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods have to be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric powered products including tumble dryers, monitors, kettles, computers and even hair straighteners.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is probably the most common skip which is ordered across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builder’s skip is perfect for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip will be the largest option which you can use for hefty materials such as dirt, concrete, bricks and gravel.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, that will provide you with sufficient time to fill your skip. However, if you need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, if you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just tell us once you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.
What skip sizes do you offer?
We are able to provide a full-range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip ideal for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A popular option for larger jobs, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Wednesbury companies which have a large quantity of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

We offer a UK wide skip hire and waste management service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you want skip hire in Wednesbury, Bilston, Solihull, Sutton Coldfield or any other area in West Midlands, we are able to help.
How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container that can be used to dispose of huge quantities of waste. Generally, these containers are used for business applications. However, household clients can also use them. You should consider the space they will take up, because they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be hired for light-weight waste like plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of soil and concrete.
Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into a variety of waste streams, including timber, soil and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
What waste materials am I allowed to put in the skip?
A skip can be used to discard lots of different types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and handling a multitude of items produced from construction jobs, garden projects and house clearances. A few examples of permitted waste products include:
- Tree cuttings
- Top soil
- Bathroom sinks
- Cabinets and units
Many waste types are allowed, so whether you would like to get rid of metals, plastic materials, timber or textiles, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The quantity and waste types you put in your skip can vary depending on the size skip you have hired. Skips do have a weight limit for safety. So if you need to get rid of top soil and concrete, for example, the biggest size container you will be allowed to use would be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
What sort of materials am I not allowed to put in my skip?
There are some waste materials which you are not allowed to put in the skip. The reason for this is that some items incorporate hazardous elements which can cause damage to the environment. They could also be damaging to human health, and so they need to be disposed of separately under UK legislation.
Some examples of the items which are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- PC monitors
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
If I require a skip on the road in Wednesbury, will I need to have a permit?
Generally, it is possible to get the skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to do this, you will need to have consent from your local authority in Wednesbury, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for this license, and it may sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.
What size skips have a drop down door?
In general, most skips can be supplied with a drop door, depending on the size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip which has a drop door is primarily useful if you are hiring a large builder’s skip, since it allows you to wheelbarrow your rubbish into the skip. This is not so important for mini and midi skips, since they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
