Windermere Skip Hire FAQs
What happens to the rubbish?
The waste in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling facility. Here the waste will be separated by machinery and also by hand into different waste streams, like soil, cardboard, rubble and timber. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.
Can you deliver to other areas in Cumbria?
Absolutely. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we are able to supply skips to both domestic and industrial customers across Cumbria and anywhere else in the UK.
How fast can you deliver a skip to Windermere?
We will make sure your skip will be provided when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the next day.
Although we can’t promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to reach you within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You should ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will often incur a charge for the wasted journey.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?
The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a substantial skip that can be used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These skips are predominantly for industrial use but can be hired by residential customers also. However, you will want a lot of space since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger when compared to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.
Due to the size, RORO containers should only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and rubble.
How do I hire a skip?
Hiring a skip shouldn’t be hard. This is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, type in your delivery address to look at all the different skips we can deliver to Windermere. Pick the size you want to hire, and confirm whether it will be positioned on your own property. Enter your details and then make payment using our secure payment platform.
When your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with all of your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
Will the skip have a drop down door?
The vast majority of containers can be supplied with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the container, especially with heavy materials, like dirt and concrete, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, such as furniture.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we deliver the skip. So long as we can gain access to where you need it positioned, we can manage it all.
For those who are not going to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you book the order. For instance, you may prefer the skip to be located at a particular area of the driveway. Alternatively, you might need to make sure the skip doesn’t block entry to your garage.
Whatever the situation might be, let us know when ordering, and we will make sure the instructions are passed on to the lorry driver.

Will a skip hire company from Windermere deliver my skip?
A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Windermere. We make use of a network of both local and nationwide companies to allow us to offer our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These companies are assessed to make certain they meet the high principles we demand when it comes to customer service, price and environmental performance.
Can I pile up the waste in my skip?
You must not load your skip past the level load mark. If you fill it above the tip of this level, it means your skip will not be safe to move, and you may be asked to take off any extra waste prior to it being picked up.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to 14 days. In most cases, this will give you plenty of time to fill your skip. However, if you do need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, if you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just contact us once you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Windermere?
Normally, it will be possible to get the skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to get this done, you will need to get consent from your local council in Windermere, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for the permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to approve this.
What size skips do you supply?
We are able to provide a full range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip suitable for small DIY jobs and house clearances. A common option for bigger jobs, renovations and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Windermere businesses which produce a large amount of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How much waste will the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are perfect for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furniture and old toys to paving slabs and garden soil. Having a capacity of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip will save you having to make numerous trips to your local recycling centre.
Can I dispose of all types of rubbish in the skip?
This is amongst the most popular questions people have about hiring a skip. What is important to keep in mind is that you may load your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of rubbish that can result from garden projects, construction work and property clearances.
Among the most frequent things which we pick up in our skips include soil, timber, tree cuttings, cabinets, baths, and various other household items.
There are also some items that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This consists of any electronic objects (fridge freezers, TVs and printers for example), old tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all considered hazardous waste materials, and disposing of them needs to follow an entirely different procedure to make sure they do not cause damage to the environment.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
The builder’s skip is the most common skip hired throughout the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builders skip is fantastic for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the name originates from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip is the biggest option that can be used for hefty waste matter including dirt, concrete, stone and gravel.
Am I allowed to throw away electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot dispose of old or unwanted electrical waste items in a skip. This can include such things as computers, cookers, dishwashers, freezers and computer monitors. Electrical items can’t be disposed of in the skip as they can have dangerous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
