Weymouth Skip Hire FAQs

How do I order a skip?

Ordering a skip in Weymouth with us is very simple. Pick the skip size you require and then enter a handful of details about where and when you need the skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered to you.

Am I able to throw away electronic items in the skip?

I’m afraid not, because electrical products including old TVs, freezers, laptops and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly fashion.

Can you deliver to other areas in Dorset?

We provide a national skip hire and recycling service through a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Weymouth, Sturminster Newton, Fortuneswell, Poole or any other area in Dorset, we can help.

How long can I keep the skip for?

You can usually keep a skip for as many as 2 weeks from your delivery date. It is possible to give a chosen pick up day when you place your order. Alternatively, you can tell us once you have finished with the skip, and then we will arrange the collection. Generally, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take a bit longer during hectic times.

Is it ok to load the skip higher than the top?

It is important to never overload the skip. You can not pass the level load mark indicated on the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it is very hazardous to transport. Which means that when you overload your skip, you may be required to remove the excess waste. Regardless of how secure you feel the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the waste. That is dangerous and is prohibited.

Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?

No, you do not have to be home when we deliver the skip. Providing we can gain access to where you want it positioned, we can take care of it all.

If you are not likely to be in, just let us know any relevant delivery instructions when placing the order. For instance, you may need the skip to be positioned on a particular part of the property. Alternatively, you may need to make sure the skip doesn’t obstruct access to your garage.

No matter what the case may be, tell us when ordering, and we will ensure the instructions will be passed on to the delivery driver.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into a range of waste streams, such as timber, soil and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!

Am I allowed to throw all sorts of rubbish in my skip?

It is possible to fill your skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly produced from home clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, soil, rubble, hedge trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you throw in the skip will depend on which size you have hired, as there is a weight limit. For instance, if you are using the skip for heavy building wastes including rubble or garden soil, the maximum size you could use is an 8 cubic yard.

Some materials cannot be discarded in the skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.

How large is a mini skip?

For those who have a small quantity of rubbish to dispose of, a mini skip might be the best choice. What size is referred to as a mini skip varies from company to company, depending on what sizes they offer.

The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to have a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The cost is based on the particular size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are perfect for domestic work such as modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

How big is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large commercial size skips used predominantly within the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for businesses that produce large volumes of waste.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is probably the most common skip which is hired across the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is fantastic for most building tasks, which is where the label stems from.

The 8 yd builder’s skip is the biggest option which can be used for hefty waste such as dirt, concrete, bricks and rubble.

How quick can you deliver a skip in Weymouth?

We will make sure your skip is provided on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the following day.

Although we cannot guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

You will need to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will in most cases incur a fee for the wasted journey.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Weymouth?

Our goal is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Weymouth. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have your skip located on the road or other council property, you will also have to factor in the additional cost of the skip permit.

If I need a skip on the road in Weymouth, will I need to get a permit?

This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only require a permit if it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if your skip will be on private property, like a driveway or on your business premises.

If you do need to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know as part of the order process, and then we can make the required arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on your own property, it will save you some money.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Weymouth?

We utilise a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our clients in Weymouth and the rest of the country. All of our partner skip hire companies are verified and tested to make certain they meet our standards for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?

Using a skip which has a drop door can make filling rubbish into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste such as dirt and rubble, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of big bulky items like household furniture much easier also.

Most skip containers can be provided with a drop door, however this may sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when making your order if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.

What are the different skip sizes available?

We can provide a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for modest DIY tasks and household clearances. A common choice for larger jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

For Weymouth businesses which generate a big quantity of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.
