Winchcombe Skip Hire FAQs

Can I throw away electrical products in the skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects have to be kept separate from general waste to be recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric goods including tumble dryers, TVs, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.

Can I dispose of all types of waste in my skip?

This is among the most common questions people have about our service. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you can fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of rubbish that may come from garden projects, building work and home clearances.

Among the most typical things which we collect in our skips include dirt, timber, hedge cuttings, cabinets, sinks, as well as other household products.

However, there are some items that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This consists of any electronic items (dishwashers, TVs and cookers for example), car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and disposing of them must comply with an entirely different procedure to make sure they don’t cause damage to the environment.

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

Ideally, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. If you are carrying out a domestic project, then the drive will be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. On the other hand, when neither is available, the road or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public property, you need to get a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on a street, grass verge as well as other public property in Winchcombe. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be granted for you. An extra charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

How big is a mini skip?

When you have a small amount of rubbish to throw out, a mini skip may be the ideal solution. What size is identified as a mini skip is different from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they supply.

The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to have a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. Price depends on the particular size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are great for residential jobs like small DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Winchcombe?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip will be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on council property (like the street). After that, pick the day you would like the skip to get delivered. Check your order and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Winchcombe on the date you have selected.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you have a company in Winchcombe and want to dispose of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a perfect option. Available in 20 to 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that can be hired.

As the name indicates, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to standard skips, that are picked up using chains.

Will a skip hire company from Winchcombe deliver my skip?

A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Winchcombe. We utilize a network of both local and nationwide businesses to allow us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully assessed to guarantee they satisfy the high standards we demand when it comes to service, price and environmental performance.

Will the skip have a drop down door?

Getting a skip that has a drop door will make loading waste into the skip much easier. This is especially the case with heavy waste like dirt or hardcore, which can then be loaded into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away big bulky items such as household furniture much easier too.

Most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, although this will sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a door is required, and we will do our best to deliver this.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

You can usually have a skip for as many as two weeks from the delivery date. You can provide a preferred pick up date when you place your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have finished, and then we will prepare the collection. Usually, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take a little longer over busy times.

Can you deliver skips across Gloucestershire?

Certainly, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skips to areas throughout Gloucestershire, such as Winchcombe, Lydney, Stow-on-the-Wold and Stroud. So no matter where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

What happens to the waste when the skip is collected?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into various waste streams, including wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

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

Our goal is to offer the cheapest skip hire service in Winchcombe. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have a skip situated on the road or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the extra cost of the skip permit.

How fast can you deliver a skip to Winchcombe?

We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you confirm your order before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we strive to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery location, as failed deliveries can result in a fee for a wasted trip.

Am I allowed to load my skip above the top?

Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it dangerous to move, and you will probably be asked to remove any contents above the level load mark. This means that you cannot use sheets of timber, doors or any other item, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to make sure that bins are not overfilled or overweight before transporting them.

Please be sure to select the appropriate size of skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you are uncertain which size you require. We would be happy to help.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The term builder’s skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The label comes from the fact that these are the most typical sizes ordered by builders and tradespeople.

These substantial skips are great for an array of residential and industrial projects. They are the biggest skips which can be used for hefty builders waste like dirt, rubble and concrete.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

No, you don’t need to be home when we deliver your skip. As long as we are able to gain access to where you want it positioned, we are able to take care of it all.

In case you are not going to be in, simply let us have any relevant delivery instructions when you place the order. For instance, you may want the skip to be dropped at a particular side of the property. Alternatively, you may want to be sure that the skip does not block use of your garage.

No matter what the case might be, provide the details when you place your order, and then we will ensure your instructions are passed to the delivery driver.

How many different skip sizes are there?

We can offer a full range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip great for small DIY jobs and household clearances. A popular choice for bigger tasks, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard skip.

For Winchcombe companies which have a large volume of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.
