West Bridgford Skip Hire FAQs
Can I fill the skip above the level load mark?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it unsafe to move, and you will be asked to empty any materials above the level load mark. This also means that you are unable to make use of sheets of timber, doors or some other item, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to make sure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please be sure you hire the correct size of skip to meet your requirements and get in touch if you are unsure which size you require. We would be pleased to help.
Will you deliver skips across Nottinghamshire?
Sure, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer skips to locations across Nottinghamshire, such as West Bridgford, Retford, Nottingham and Hucknall. So regardless of where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in a skip?
This is amongst the most popular questions people have about hiring a skip. The main thing to keep in mind is that you may load your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of rubbish that could come from garden projects, building work and property clearances.
Some of the most typical items that we pick up in our skips include soil, wood, bush trimmings, cabinets, sinks, as well as other household objects.
There are some materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This can include any electrical products (fridge freezers, televisions or printers for example), old car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and disposing of them must abide by an entirely different procedure to ensure they do not cause harm to the environment.
What is the procedure for hiring a skip in West Bridgford?
This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you wish to hire. Let us know whether the skip shall be going on private property (a drive, for example) or local authority property (like the street). Next, pick the day you would like your skip to be delivered. Check your order details and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. Job done! We will deliver your chosen skip to West Bridgford on the day you have chosen.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
A builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These are the largest containers that can be used to dispose of heavy construction waste such as rock, bricks, gravel or soil.
The builders skip is ideal for a number of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing the loft space, these big containers are usually the most affordable option available.
Will a West Bridgford skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in West Bridgford. We employ a network of both local and nationwide providers to allow us to provide our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are thoroughly vetted to make sure they satisfy the high expectations we demand when it comes to service, cost and environmental performance.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip will be provided when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we are not able to promise a precise delivery time, we will do our very best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
It is important to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will often incur a fee for the wasted journey.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container used to transport significant amounts of waste. Predominantly, these type of containers are hired for commercial applications. However, household clients can also hire them. It is very important look at the area they occupy, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be used for light-weight waste like paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and rubble.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in West Bridgford?
If possible, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface. If you are doing a household task, then your drive will be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public land, you will need to get a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be positioned on the street, grass verge or other public property in West Bridgford. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be granted on your behalf. An additional charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into several different waste types, which includes timber, soil and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the waste is recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
Our standard hire period will be 14 days from your delivery date. Having said that, at the time you order the skip, you can provide a collection date that is ideal for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if your skip is full earlier than anticipated, contact us, and we will pick it up as soon as possible.
We will usually be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. However, it is important to understand that this is not always the case at busy periods. Once collected, the skip will be transported to your local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed and sorted.
Can I throw electronic products in the skip?
No, you cannot throw old electrical waste products in your skip. This can include things such as computers, microwaves, washing machines, fridges and televisions. Electronic objects can’t be thrown in your skip since they can contain hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are perfect for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furniture and broken toys to paving slabs and garden soil. With a capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make multiple journeys to the local recycling centre.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
When it comes to ordering a skip in West Bridgford, you have several sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for small house clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain 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 frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their big capacity also means they are great for house clear ups including bulky objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for those with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only appropriate for light waste materials, so they cannot be used to get rid of soil or rubble.
For additional details about the different capacities available, such as measurements, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?
It is always best if you can be in when anybody delivers anything to your home. That allows you to ensure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be dropped just where you need it.
The same applies for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in West Bridgford?
The cost of getting a skip in West Bridgford is determined by the size of skip you need. The least expensive option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you want a bigger skip, such as an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also increase if you need to have your skip on the road, because you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Which size skips can have a drop down door?
Generally, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip that has a drop door is mainly helpful when you are hiring a large builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow rubbish into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, as they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
