Below are some of the typical questions we get about our skip hire and recycling services.

Whittlesey Skip Hire FAQs

How long can I hire a skip for?

Generally, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you don’t need to hurry through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Whittlesey?

This depends on the skip size you require and whether you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced choice. The most costly and largest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used primarily in business settings.

Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?

It is vital never to overload the skip. You must not pass the level load mark indicated along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it will become very unsafe to move. Which means that when you overload your skip, you might be required to take away the excess rubbish. Regardless of how secure you feel the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. That is dangerous and is therefore prohibited.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We can usually provide a following day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (like a road), you will need to get a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.

As a result of many factors that could impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it arriving in a AM or PM slot.

Am I able to put electronic items in my skip?

Unfortunately it is not permitted, since electronic items like old televisions, refrigerators, pcs and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly manner.

Do I need to be at home when the skip will be delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be there when the skip is delivered. Then you can be sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip will be positioned exactly where you want it. The same is applicable when you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly if gates limit access.

On the other hand, when this isn’t achievable, you do not have to worry. Simply tell us when you are placing your booking, and then we will take care of everything.

What size is the mini skip?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some household waste, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to tackle many tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be situated on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit.

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

What size is a builder’s skip?

The name builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These will be the largest containers that can be hired to dispose of substantial construction materials such as stone, concrete, gravel or dirt.

A builder’s skip is ideal for a wide range of jobs. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing the attic, these substantial skips are often the most affordable choice available.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Whittlesey?

In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want the skip to be placed on land outside of your business or house, you need to receive permission from the local council in Whittlesey, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we will be happy to organise this for you, so it’s one less point to think about. The council will charge a fee for the skip license, and you should be aware before placing your order that securing the licence can often take up to two working days.

Who will deliver my skip?

We use a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our clients in Whittlesey and the rest of the UK. All of our partner skip hire companies are verified and tested to make certain they meet our expectations for price, customer service, recycling and reliability.

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you offer?

If you operate a company in Whittlesey and need to dispose of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a perfect option. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers that you can hire.

As the name indicates, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, that are lifted using chains.

Can I dispose of all sorts of rubbish in the skip?

You are able to load the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from garage clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, top soil, concrete, garden trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you throw in your skip depends on the size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, in the event that you will be using the skip for heavy construction wastes like concrete or soil, the biggest size you could use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials should not be discarded in a skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.

What will happen to my rubbish when the skip is picked up?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get sorted into a variety of waste types, such as stone, metals and cardboard. 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 to landfill as possible!

How do I order a skip in Whittlesey?

This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you would like to hire. Tell us whether the skip will be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or local authority property (such as the road). Next, pick the day you want your skip to get delivered. Check your order and make payment with our secure online payment platform. Job done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Whittlesey on the day you have selected.

Will you deliver skips across Cambridgeshire?

Certainly. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we are able to deliver skips to both residential and commercial customers across Cambridgeshire and elsewhere within the UK.

What skip sizes can you offer?

Skips are offered in a number of different sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is great for small domestic jobs.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold around 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a good choice for loft clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant waste disposal task to take on, the builder’s skip could be the smartest choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title implies, these are the most popular sizes ordered by builders for building waste, including soil and hardcore. But they can equally well be hired for household rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also deliver 10-16 yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more information about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Can I get a skip with a drop door?

When you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is ideal for disposing of hefty building and construction rubbish, as it can be pushed in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop door, although these are more uncommon. This is because these sizes are typically low enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you want a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a skip with a drop door is provided.

Other areas covered include St Ives, Godmanchester, Ely, Chatteris, Wisbech, St Neots, Soham and Cambridge.
