Weston-Super-Mare Skip Hire FAQs

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container used to get rid of large volumes of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these containers are hired for commercial purposes. However, residential clients may also use them. You have to think about the area they will occupy, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be hired for lightweight waste including paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of dirt and rubble.

Is it okay to load my skip higher than level load mark?

It is important to not overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take out excess waste before it can be picked up. Regardless of what size you order, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since moving an overloaded skip will be dangerous, as rubbish could drop and cause injuries or damage to others.

To prevent this issue, please be sure to hire a skip size suitable for your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full and you have extra rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.

What types of rubbish can you get rid of in a skip?

You may use your skip to throw out a variety of waste materials. We are used to picking up and handling lots of items produced from building jobs, garden landscaping and house clean-ups. Some examples of permitted waste materials can include:

  • Home furniture
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Top soil
  • Rubble
  • Bathroom suites
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many different materials are allowed, therefore whether you wish to throw out furniture, plastics, wood or old toys, we can usually take your waste away.

The quantity and materials you discard in the skip may vary depending on which size skip you ordered. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you want to dispose of garden soil and bricks, for example, the biggest size you will be allowed to hire would be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Are there any items that I can’t put in the skip?

There are some items that you are not able to dispose of in your skip. The reason behind this is that some items incorporate hazardous elements which could be harmful to the environment. They can even be dangerous to human health, so they must be disposed of separately within UK laws.

Some of the products that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Will you deliver skips across Somerset?

When will my skip be delivered?

Our online booking program provides you with 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.

How large is the mini skip?

If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household rubbish, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to deal with numerous jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be situated on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit.

Although most frequently chosen by household customers, the mini skip can even tackle small commercial jobs.

Will a Weston-Super-Mare skip hire company deliver my skip?

To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work with a wide range of local and national companies. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we can provide customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

Our regular hire time frame is 2 weeks from the date of delivery. Having said that, at the time you order the skip, you can select a collection date that is best for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if the skip is finished with sooner than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it picked up as soon as possible.

Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. However, it is important to keep in mind that this may not be possible at busier periods. Once collected, the waste will be transported to a local waste transfer station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Weston-Super-Mare?

This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a permit when it is positioned on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip is on your private property, like a driveway or on your company premises.

If you do need to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can place the skip on private property, it will save you some pounds.

Where will my waste go when the skip is collected?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into the various waste materials, like wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?

You don’t have to be at your property when the skip is going to be delivered, but it can help. Being in whenever the skip is delivered means you can ensure the lorry driver can be given full access and that your skip is dropped precisely where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is delivered to your company property, we will appreciate your help during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.

Even so, when you can’t be available for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask you to tell us when you book your order, and we will arrange things from there.

Do all skips have a drop door?

When you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is perfect for disposing of heavy building and demolition waste materials, as it can be pushed in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop door, however these are less common. Simply because these sizes are generally small enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to ensure a container which has a drop door is delivered.
