Wells-next-the-Sea Skip Hire FAQs
What can I put in the skip?
You may use your skip to throw out many different waste materials. We are used to picking up and processing numerous items produced from construction jobs, garden projects and house tidy-ups. Examples of allowed waste products can include:
- Pieces of furniture
- Tree trimmings
- Bathroom suites
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Many waste types will be accepted, and therefore whether you would like to dispose of metals, plastic materials, timber or textiles, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The quantity and items you throw in your skip may vary based on which size skip you ordered. All skips have a weight limit for safety purposes. So to be able to dispose of top soil and concrete, for example, the biggest size container you would be able to hire will be the 8 cubic yard skip.
What type of items am I not allowed to put in a skip?
There are some materials that you are not allowed to get rid of in your skip. The reason behind this is that some products contain hazardous components which could cause damage to the environment. They may also be hazardous to human health, so they must be discarded separately under UK regulations.
A few of the things that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas canisters
- PC screens
- Car tyres
What is classed as being a builders skip?
The builders skip is regarded as the common skip which is hired across the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builders skip is perfect for most building and demolition work, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 yard builders skip will be the largest size which you can use for hefty waste materials including garden soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.
Do you deliver skips across Norfolk?
Absolutely. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we are able to deliver skips to household and business customers across Norfolk and anywhere else within the UK.
Will a skip hire company from Wells-next-the-Sea deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both local and national skip hire firms to supply skips to our clients in Wells-next-the-Sea and the rest of the UK. All of our partner businesses are approved and tested to make certain they satisfy our expectations for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
Do all skips have a drop door?
Having a skip that has a drop door will make filling waste into it much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy materials such as soil and concrete, which can then be loaded directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up big bulky items such as furniture a lot easier as well.
Most skip containers can be provided with a drop door, but this can sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a door is needed, and we will do our very best to deliver this.
What happens to the rubbish once the skip is collected?
When you have finished with your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility in or local to Wells-next-the-Sea where we sort the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a huge container used to get rid of large quantities of rubbish. These bins are primarily for industrial use but can be used by domestic customers too. Having said that, you should have plenty of room because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger in comparison to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, these containers should only be used for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and bricks.
How quickly can you deliver a skip in Wells-next-the-Sea?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a date that suits you. We can normally give you a next day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, since to be on public property (such as a highway), you need to gain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of several factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it arriving in a morning or afternoon slot.
Do I have to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be at home when we deliver the skip. As long as we can access the place you want it positioned, we are able to take care of everything.
For those who are not going to be in, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For instance, you may want the skip to be positioned at a particular side of your driveway. Alternatively, you may need to be sure that the skip does not obstruct access to your garage.
No matter what the situation may be, simply tell us when ordering, and we will make sure the instructions are passed on to the delivery driver.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Wells-next-the-Sea?
This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only require a skip permit if it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if your skip is on private property, such as a driveway or within your company premises.
If you need to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on private land, it will save you some money.
How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact skip provided by skip companies and is designed for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip companies provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which may be slightly 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 labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
How long can I keep the skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. In most cases, that provides you with sufficient time to fill up your skip. However, if you do need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, should you finish with the skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your pick up. Just tell us once you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.

Am I allowed to throw electrical products in my skip?
Electrical products such as TVs, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous type of waste and so cannot be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electrical products need to be separated from other materials. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.

Can I load up the skip higher than the top?
No, you must only load your skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste materials up over this line will make it unsafe to move, and you might be told to take off the extra waste before the skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to raise the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.
How many different skip sizes are there?
We provide a full range of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for small DIY tasks and household clearances. A common choice for bigger tasks, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard skip.
For Wells-next-the-Sea firms which generate a big quantity of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.
