Wellingborough Skip Hire FAQs

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

You can usually keep your skip for up to 14 days from the date of delivery. You may give a preferred pick up day at the time you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can tell us after you have finished, and we will prepare the collection. Generally, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer during busy times.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Wellingborough?

To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Wellingborough, insert your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you which skip sizes we provide in your location and how much each one costs to hire. If your skip is going on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.

Will a Wellingborough skip hire company deliver my skip?

We utilise a network of both regional and national skip hire firms to supply skips to our clients in Wellingborough and the rest of the UK. Our partner skip hire providers are approved and tested to make certain they meet our standards for price, customer service, recycling and reliability.

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?

I’m afraid not, as electrical items including old televisions, freezers, printers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects must be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly manner.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we can even give you a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed as part of the order process.

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

No, you don’t have to be home when we are delivering your skip. So long as we are able to access where you want it positioned, we are able to take care of it all.

When you are not going to be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery instructions when booking your order. For example, you may want the skip to be positioned on a particular part of your drive. Or you may want to ensure the skip does not block access to your garage.

No matter what the situation may be, let us know when ordering, and then we will ensure the instructions will be passed to the delivery driver.

What happens to the waste in my skip?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into a range of waste types, including timber, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip will be the most compact skip delivered by skip companies and is ideal for small DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies offer you a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?

You should not fill a skip past the level load line. If you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be safe and secure to move, and you may be asked to remove the extra waste prior to it being picked up.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Wellingborough?

In most 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 want the skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or home, you will need to secure permission from your local authority in Wellingborough, which is known as a skip permit. If necessary, we would gladly arrange this for you, therefore it’s one less issue to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for your skip permit, plus you should know before booking that securing the licence can often take up to 2 working days.

What types of waste can I put in my skip?

It is possible to load the skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly produced from home clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include timber, soil, concrete, hedge trimmings, household furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you put in the skip would depend on which size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, when you will be using the skip for heavy construction wastes including bricks or soil, the largest size you would be able to hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials cannot be discarded in a skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.

Can you deliver skips across Northamptonshire?

Certainly, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skip sizes to locations across Northamptonshire, including Wellingborough, Thrapston, Oundle and Brackley. So wherever you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

How much waste can a builders skip hold?

A builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the biggest skips that can be used to discard heavy building materials such as stone, bricks, gravel or dirt.

A builders skip is ideal for a wide range of jobs. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or cleaning the shed, these big containers tend to be the most cost-effective choice available.

What is the process of ordering a skip in Wellingborough?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you would like to hire. Let us know whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or local authority property (like the street). After that, choose the date you would like the skip to get delivered. Check your order details and make payment using our secure online payment platform. That is it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Wellingborough on the day you have selected.

What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are huge industrial size skips used predominantly in the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for organisations that produce large quantities of waste materials.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Wellingborough, you will have several options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard container, sometimes called the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is great for modest home clearances and DIY work.

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

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also means they are ideal for household tidy ups including bulky items like furniture and beds.

We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for anyone with even larger waste disposal requirements. These containers are only suited to lightweight waste materials, so they can’t be hired to get rid of soil or rubble.

For additional information about the different capacities available, such as proportions, check out our guide to skip sizes.

Which skip sizes have got a drop door?

If you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is designed for disposing of hefty building and demolition waste materials, as it can be walked in the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop down door, although these are less common. This is because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our very best to ensure a skip that has a drop door is provided.

Other areas covered include Thrapston, Oundle, Brackley, Daventry, Rushden, Desborough, Corby and Northampton.
