What types of waste can you dispose of in a skip?
Prior to ordering your skip, it is important to check that the sort of rubbish you wish to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials have to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you may discard in your skip include household items like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use a skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, including bricks, dirt, stone, metals and concrete.
Examples of prohibited items include things like electronic goods, tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently need to be discarded separately from general waste.
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can in most cases keep the skip for as long as 2 weeks from the date of delivery. You may give a chosen pick up date at the time you place your order. Otherwise, you can let us know once you have finished, and then we will plan the collection. In most cases, this will be the following working day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer during busy periods.
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you operate a company in Welling and wish to get rid of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a great choice. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that can be hired.
As the name suggests, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike regular skips, which are lifted using chains.
Is it ok to load up the skip above the side?
You should not fill the skip past the level load mark. When you fill it over the tip of this mark, it means that your skip will not be safe to transport, and you can be asked to take off any extra waste prior to it being picked up.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can normally supply skips to Welling the following working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking program gives you a range of delivery dates to select from. So whether you want your skip delivered ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are perfect for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and old baby toys to paving slabs and bricks. With a capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip will save you needing to make numerous journeys to the local recycling centre.
How much will skip hire in Welling cost?
The price of hiring a skip in Welling depends on the size of skip you require. The lowest priced skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and clearances. If you want a larger sized skip, like an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you want to have your skip on the road, since you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Which size skips have a drop down door?
Having a skip with a drop door helps make loading rubbish into it so much easier. This is particularly true with hefty waste materials like garden soil or hardcore, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make disposing of big bulky items such as pieces of furniture a lot easier also.
Most skips can be provided with a drop down door, although this may sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.
What will happen to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get segregated into a range of waste types, which includes stone, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yd skip. The label stems from the fact that these are the most typical sizes used by general builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are ideal for numerous types of household and commercial projects. They are the largest skips which you can use for hefty builders waste including dirt, rubble and concrete.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be at home on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip can be situated precisely where you need it. This also is true if you have a skip delivered to business property, especially when gates restrict access.
On the other hand, if that isn’t possible, you do not have to be concerned. Just let us know when placing your booking, and then we will take care of the rest.
Am I able to put electronic items in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, as electronic items like old televisions, freezers, pcs and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.
