Whitchurch (Shropshire) Skip Hire FAQs

Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Whitchurch?

Ideally, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface. For anyone who is carrying out a household task, then a driveway is going to be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither is available, the road or grass verge may be your only option. 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 necessary for a skip to be placed on the street, grass verge or other public property in Whitchurch. If this is required, we will request the license to be granted on your behalf. An additional cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

Am I able to throw all types of waste in a skip?

It is possible to throw a variety of waste in the skip. This includes wood, ceramic tiles, plastics or bricks from a household clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, top soil and stone from garden jobs are permitted as well. Cupboards and worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in the skip.

There are, however, some items that you are not allowed to put in a skip because of the possible environmental or health risk they might cause.

You cannot get rid of your fridge, television or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things incorporate hazardous materials in one kind or another. They must be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.

If you need hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to organise an independent collection for this material. Please contact us for more information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

Am I able to dispose of electronic items in the skip?

Electric powered items like television sets, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste and so should not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric products need to be separated from other waste. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.

Will you deliver skips across Shropshire?

Certainly. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we can deliver skips to both household and commercial customers across Shropshire and anywhere else in the UK.

Should I be in when the skip will be delivered?

No, you don’t have to be at home when we deliver your skip. Provided that we can gain access to the place you need it located, we can take care of everything.

If you are not going to be in, simply let us know any relevant delivery instructions when you place the order. For example, you may want the skip to be positioned at a particular area of your property. Or you may need to be sure that the skip does not hinder entry to your garage.

Whatever the case may be, simply let us know when you place your order, and then we will make sure the instructions are passed on to the lorry driver.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

Using a skip that has a drop door makes loading rubbish into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste like garden soil and concrete, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away large bulky items such as pieces of furniture easier too.

The majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, however this will sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a door is needed, and we will do our best to provide this.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Whitchurch?

We utilise a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to supply skips to our customers in Whitchurch and the rest of Shropshire. All of our partner companies are approved and evaluated to make sure they match our expectations for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to get rid of huge amounts of waste. Predominantly, these containers are used for industrial uses. Having said that, domestic customers can also use them. It is very important look at the space they take up, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be used for light-weight materials like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and concrete.

What size skips can you supply?

Skips are offered in a wide range of sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is great for small household tasks.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is an excellent option for garden clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more substantial waste disposal job to sort out, a builder’s skip may be the smartest choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title implies, these are the most common sizes used by builders for building waste, including soil and rubble. However they can equally well be used for household waste such as old furniture or kitchen units.

We also deliver 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What will happen to the waste in my skip?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets separated into a variety of waste streams, which includes stone, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

How long can I keep a skip for?

Our normal hire term is 14 days from the delivery date. However, at the time you book your skip, you can provide a pick up date that is best for you. Of course, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if your skip is finished with earlier than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it picked up at the earliest opportunity.

We can normally be out to get your skip within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to keep in mind that this is not always the case at busy periods. Once collected, the skip will be taken to your local waste recycling centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Am I allowed to load up the skip above the top?

It is essential to never overload the skip. You should not pass the level load line shown on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it becomes very hazardous to transport. This means that when you overload the skip, you could be asked to take away the surplus waste. However safe you think the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. That is unsafe and is not allowed.

What is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some household rubbish, the 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 option to deal with many jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be situated on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

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

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most commonly used for building and demolition projects. There are generally two different sizes which can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips which can be used to dispose of large volumes of building and demolition materials, such as garden soil, rubble and rock.

Even though they are labelled a builders skip, these can be used for a number of other household and industrial waste disposal jobs.
