Below are a few of the typical questions we get relating to our skip hire service.
Westbury Skip Hire FAQs
How big is a mini skip?
When you have a small quantity of rubbish to dispose of, a mini skip could be the perfect choice. What size is described as a mini skip is different from business to business, depending on what sizes they have.
The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to have a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. Cost is based on the specific size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are best for household jobs including small DIY projects and garden clean ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
A builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These are the largest skips used to get rid of heavy building and demolition materials such as stone, bricks, rubble or clay.
The builder’s skip is ideal for a wide range of jobs. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing the garden shed, these large skips will often be the most cost-effective option available.
How do you hire a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know if the skip is going to be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or council property (such as the street). Then, select the date you would like the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. All done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Westbury on the date you have chosen.
Which size skips have got a door?
Using a skip which has a drop door will make filling waste into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly true with hefty waste materials such as garden soil and rubble, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading big bulky items such as furniture a lot easier too.
Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, however it will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a door is needed, and we will do our best to deliver this.
How long can I keep a skip for?
You can typically keep the skip for as many as two weeks from your date of delivery. You may provide a preferred collection day when you make your order. Alternatively, you can let us know once you have finished, and we will plan your collection. Normally, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take a little longer over hectic periods.
Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?
Electrical items like TVs, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste and therefore can not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric products must be segregated from other materials. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Westbury?
Preferably, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. For anyone who is doing a residential job, then a drive will be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public property, you have got to have a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be located on the road, grass verge or other public property in Westbury. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be granted for you. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
What happens to my rubbish when the skip is collected?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste gets separated into several different waste types, such as timber, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?
It is very important not to overfill your skip, as you run the risk of being asked to remove excess waste prior to it being collected. Whatever size you hire, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, as transporting an overloaded skip is unsafe, as materials could fall and cause injury or damage to others.
To avoid this problem, please be sure you order a skip size suitable for your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full and you have extra rubbish to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you manage a company in Westbury and need to dispose of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container may be a great choice. Available in 20 – 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers available.
As the name indicates, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike normal skips, which are lifted by using chains.
Do I have to be home whenever the skip is delivered?
No, you don’t have to be at home when we deliver the skip. Provided that we are able to access where you need it positioned, we will manage it all.
In case you are not going to be in, just let us have any relevant delivery instructions when booking the order. For instance, you may want the skip to be dropped at a particular area of your driveway. Or you might need to make sure the skip doesn’t hinder entry to your garage.
Whatever the case may be, provide the details when you place your order, and we will make sure the instructions are passed to the lorry driver.
When will my skip be delivered?
When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. In some cases, we will even give you a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed when going through the order process.

With the help of a network of regional and national waste management businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service.

What waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?
You are allowed to put a variety of rubbish in the skip. This includes wood, ceramic tiles, plastics or bricks from a property clearance. Tree and bush clippings, dirt and stone from garden work is allowed as well. Dated units from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also go in a skip.
There are, however, some materials that you cannot put in a skip a result of the potential environmental or health risks they could cause.
You can not get rid of your fridge, television or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items consist of hazardous materials in one form or another. They must be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
Should you require hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to schedule an independent service for this material. Please email for further information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
What are the different skip sizes available?
We can offer a wide range of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip best for small DIY jobs and household clearances. A common option for bigger projects, renovations and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Westbury companies which have a significant quantity of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.
