Wellington Skip Hire FAQs
Do you deliver skips across Somerset?
Yes. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we can supply skips to domestic and commercial customers across Somerset and elsewhere in the UK.
What waste am I allowed to put in my skip?
This is among the most popular questions people have about hiring a skip. The main thing to keep in mind is that you can fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of rubbish that could result from garden projects, construction work and home clearances.
Among the most typical things which we see in our skips include soil, timber, hedge trimmings, cupboards, baths, and other household products.
However, there are some materials that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. For example, any electrical goods (fridges and freezers, monitors and computers for example), old car tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and disposing of them has to follow an entirely different procedure to make sure they do not result in harm to the environment.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Wellington?
To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Wellington, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you the skip sizes we provide in your area and how much each size will cost to hire. If your skip will be on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest skip offered by skip companies and is ideal for small DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some companies will provide a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
What will happen to the rubbish?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets segregated into a variety of waste streams, which includes timber, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Who will deliver my skip?
We use a network of both local and national skip hire firms to supply skips to our clients in Wellington and the rest of the UK. Our partner skip hire companies are verified and tested to ensure they match our standards for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you have a company in Wellington and wish to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a great choice. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the label indicates, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, in contrast to standard skips, that are lifted by using chains.
What are the different skip sizes available?
Skips are offered in a variety of different sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is perfect for small household tasks.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a fantastic choice for garden shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more substantial waste disposal job to undertake, the builder’s skip might be the best choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label implies, they are the most popular sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, like clay and rubble. But they can just as well be used for household waste such as old furniture or kitchen units.
We can also supply 10-16 yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more details about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
Am I allowed to load the skip higher than level load mark?
It is vital to not overload the skip. You must not pass the level load mark indicated along the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it will become very dangerous to move. Which means that if you overload the skip, you might be asked to take away the surplus waste. However secure you think the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. That is hazardous and is prohibited.
How long does it take to get a skip in Wellington?
We can usually deliver skips to Wellington the next working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking system offers you various delivery dates to select from. So whether you need a skip delivered asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
What is classed as being a builders skip?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the frequent skip used across the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builder’s skip is ideal for most building projects, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 yd builder’s skip will be the biggest size which you can use for hefty waste matter such as soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, this will give you plenty of time to load your skip. However, if you do need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, should you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just let us know once you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.
If I require a skip on a road in Wellington, will I need to have a permit?
In most cases, it is possible to get your skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to do this, you will need to have approval from your local council in Wellington, which is called a skip permit. We can order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council do charge a fee for the permit, and it may sometimes take 24-2 days for them to approve this.
How can I hire a skip in Wellington?
Ordering a skip shouldn’t be hard. That is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, enter your delivery postcode to see all the different skips we can deliver to Wellington. Choose which size you would like to order, and confirm whether it is going to be positioned on private property. Enter in your details and make payment using our secure payment platform.
As soon as your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with all your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
Will my skip have a drop door?
Getting a skip with a drop down door can make filling rubbish into it a lot easier. This is especially true with hefty waste materials such as garden soil or concrete, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading big bulky items like pieces of furniture much easier too.
Most skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, although it will sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.
Can I throw electronic products in my skip?
Electric powered products such as tv sets, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste stream and so cannot be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric objects must be segregated from other waste. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly manner.
Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure that the lorry has total access and that the skip can be situated precisely where you need it. This also is applicable when you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly if gates restrict access.
On the other hand, if this isn’t feasible, you do not need to worry. Just tell us when making your booking, and then we will handle the rest.
