Wincanton Skip Hire FAQs

If I want a skip on the road in Wincanton, will I need to have a permit?

This will depend on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if your skip will be on your private property, like a drive or inside your company premises.

If you do have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, and we can make the required arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on private property, it will save you some money.

What is the process of hiring a skip in Wincanton?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip will be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on local authority property (like the street). Next, choose the date you need your skip to get delivered. Check your order and make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. Job done! We will deliver your skip to Wincanton on the date you have selected.

What is classed as a builder’s skip?

The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. They are the largest containers that can be used to dispose of weighty building waste materials such as rock, concrete, gravel or garden soil.

A builder’s skip is great for a wide range of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing out your garden shed, these big skips are often the most cost-effective option available.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are ideal for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and old baby toys to paving slabs and bricks. Having a volume of approximately 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make multiple visits to your local recycling centre.

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

If you have a business in Wincanton and want to dispose of large amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that can be hired.

As the label suggests, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to regular skips, which are lifted by using chains.

How many different skip sizes are there?

Our company offers a full variety of skip capacities to residential and industrial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the enormous 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

Here are the various sized skips offered, with a rough guide to how much waste each size can hold:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?

Unfortunately not, as electronic items like old televisions, cookers, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly manner.

Will a Wincanton skip hire company deliver my skip?

A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in Wincanton. We utilize a network of both regional and national companies to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully vetted to ensure they satisfy the high standards we demand when it comes to service, price and environmental performance.

How much will skip hire in Wincanton cost?

Our aim is to provide you with the lowest priced skip hire service in Wincanton. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have your skip located on the road or other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the extra cost of a skip permit.

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

The contents of the skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling station. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machinery and by hand into different waste materials, including metal, paper, stone and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.

Will the skip come with a drop down door?

If you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is perfect for disposing of hefty building and demolition waste, as it can be pushed in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop-down door, although these are less common. This is because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends so that you can 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 best to ensure a container that has a drop door is provided.

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

No, you don’t need to be home when we deliver your skip. As long as we can gain access to the place you want it delivered, we will take care of everything.

In the event you will not be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when you book the order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be positioned on a particular part of the property. Or you may want to make sure the skip doesn’t hinder entry to your garage.

Whatever the situation might be, tell us when ordering, and we will ensure the directions will be passed on to the lorry driver.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

You can usually keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, there is the choice of offering a preferred collection date when you place your order.

Alternatively, just let us know when you have finished with your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the following working day.

It may take a bit longer to pick up your skip over busy times, but we will always try to come as quickly as possible.

Am I allowed to fill my skip above the top?

You should not fill the skip past the level load line. When you load it over the tip of this level, it means that your skip is not secure to move, and you could be asked to take off the extra rubbish prior to it being collected.

How fast can you deliver a skip in Wincanton?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We will usually offer a following day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, since to be on public property (for example a street), you will have to get a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.

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

What sort of waste am I able to throw in a skip?

This is amongst the most popular questions people have about our skip hire service. The most important thing to remember is that you may load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of waste that will result from garden projects, building work and home clearances.

Some of the most frequent things that we collect in our skips include garden soil, timber, hedge trimmings, kitchen cabinets, toilets, and various household items.

There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This can include any electronic goods (fridge freezers, monitors and computers for example), old tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them must follow an entirely different process to make sure they do not cause harm to the environment.
