Winslow Skip Hire FAQs
How long can I hire the skip for?
The standard hire time frame is two weeks from the date of delivery. Having said that, at the time you book your skip, you can tell us a pick up date that will work for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if your skip is fully loaded earlier than expected, contact us, and we will get it picked up at the earliest opportunity.
We will usually complete collections within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to understand that this may not be possible at busier periods. Once collected, the waste will be transported to a local waste recycling station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to get rid of large volumes of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these type of skips are hired for business applications. However, domestic customers may also use them. You should look at the space they will occupy, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be utilised for light-weight waste including paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of dirt and hardcore.
How big is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest skip delivered by skip firms and is great for smaller DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms offer you a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
What is classed as a builder’s skip?
The term builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The label originates from the fact that these are the most common sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are suited to numerous domestic and commercial jobs. They are the biggest skip sizes which you can use for heavy builders waste including top soil, rubble and gravel.

As we offer a UK-wide skip service, we use a comprehensive network of approved companies. These range from small family-run skip hire firms to national waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental expectations.
Is it okay to pile up the waste in my skip?
No. You must only load your skip up to the level load line. Piling rubbish up over this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you can be told to take off the extra waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to raise the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.
What sort of rubbish am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?
You are allowed to put a variety of waste in the skip. This includes timber, floor tiles, metal or rubble from a house clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, soil and rock from garden work is permitted as well. Cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be thrown in your skip.
There are, however, some items that you are not allowed to put in a skip because of the potential environment or health risk they can trigger.
You can not get rid of your fridge, television or your old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things include hazardous components in one kind or another. They must be disposed of separately from general waste.
If you want hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to schedule 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 type of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?
Unfortunately it is not permitted, as electronic items like old televisions, refrigerators, pcs and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items must be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly manner.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
You don’t have to be home when the skip is going to be delivered, however it will help. Being in when the skip is due for delivery means that you can make sure the delivery driver can be given complete access and that your skip can be placed exactly where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is being delivered to your company property, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, if you can’t be around for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask you to let us know when you place your order, and we will organise things from there.
What happens to the waste in my skip?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into different waste streams, including timber, metals, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What are the different skip sizes available?
We offer a whole variety of skip capacities to residential and industrial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the massive 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the different skip sizes on offer, with a rough idea of the amount of rubbish each size can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Winslow?
Preferably, you should have the skip left on a hard surface area. When you are doing a domestic job, then a driveway is going to be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. However, if neither is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public land, you will have to have a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be placed on a road, grass verge as well as other public property in Winslow. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be granted for you. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.
Do all skips have a drop door?
When you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is designed for getting rid of hefty building and construction rubbish, as it can be pushed in the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop down door, though they are more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, please let us know when placing your order. We will do our utmost to make sure a skip with a drop door is provided.
