When you confirm your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive, we endeavour to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery site, as unsuccessful deliveries can lead to a fee for the wasted journey.

Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?

No, you cannot put old or broken electronic waste products in your skip. This includes items like printers, hobs, tumble dryers, freezers and television sets. These products can’t be thrown in your skip since they can include dangerous materials and components.

Do I have to be home when the skip is delivered?

You don’t really need to be at home when the skip is delivered, however it can help.

If you have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, the mini skip may be the ideal solution. What size is described as a mini skip is different from company to company, according to what sizes they supply.

2 cubic yards is the most common size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to have a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. The price is dependent on the particular size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small residential tasks.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a great option for garden clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

Guide to skip sizes

What waste materials am I allowed to put in a skip?

This is one of the most common questions people have about our skip hire service. The main thing to keep in mind is that you can load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of rubbish that can come from garden work, building work and household clearances.

Some of the most frequent things which we find in our skips include soil, timber, hedge trimmings, cabinets, toilets, and other household items.

There are some things that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. For example, any electronic objects (tumble dryers, monitors or washing machines for example), old tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them must comply with a completely different procedure to ensure they do not result in harm to the environment.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large industrial scale skips that are used primarily within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for organisations that produce significant volumes of waste.

Can I pile up waste in my skip?

It is vital to not overfill a skip. You should not pass the level load mark indicated along the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it can be very unsafe to move. This means that if you overfill the skip, you might be required to take off the surplus waste. No matter how safe you feel the skip to be, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be dangerous and is not allowed.

Can I get a skip that has a drop down door?

Nearly all containers can be provided with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.

A skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the bin, especially with weighty materials, such as garden soil and rubble, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, like furniture.

Will a Wirksworth skip hire company deliver my skip?

We use a network of both regional and national skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Wirksworth and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner skip hire providers are approved and evaluated to make certain they meet our expectations for cost, service, recycling and reliability.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Wirksworth?

Generally, it will be possible to have your skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But in order to do this, you need to have permission from your local council in Wirksworth, which is called a skip permit. We can order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council do impose a fee for your permit, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most frequently hired for construction jobs. There are typically two different skip sizes that may be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to get rid of large quantities of construction and demolition materials, like earth, concrete and bricks.

Although labelled a builders skip, they can be used for various other domestic and business waste disposal tasks.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

Usually, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t have to rush through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.

Other areas covered include Long Eaton, Derby, Whaley Bridge, Swadlincote, Buxton, Shirebrook, Glossop and Darley Dale.
