Witney Skip Hire FAQs
What happens to the waste?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into the various waste materials, like wood, metals, paper, etc. This means that as much of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the very next day. In some cases, we will even offer a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed as part of the order process.
What is the cost of skip hire in Witney?
The cost of hiring a skip in Witney will depend on the size of skip you require. The least expensive option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a larger skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also be more if you want to have the skip on the highway, because you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Am I allowed to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
I’m afraid not, as electrical products such as old televisions, fridge freezers, computers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly manner.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to get rid of large quantities of waste. Predominantly, these containers are used for business purposes. Having said that, residential customers may also order them. It is essential to consider the area they will occupy, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be utilised for lightweight waste including paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and rubble.
Will my skip have a drop door?
Generally speaking, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop door, depending on size, availability and location. If you need a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip with a drop door is mainly helpful when hiring a large builder’s skip, as it enables you to wheelbarrow rubbish directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, as they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Is it okay to load up the skip above the top?
It is vital to never overfill your skip. You can not pass the level load line that is indicated on the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it will become very hazardous to move. This means that if you overload the skip, you may be asked to take off the surplus rubbish. However safe you think the skip is, it can not 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 unsafe and is therefore not allowed.
How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, the mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to take on many tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be positioned on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit.
Although most frequently chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.
Will a Witney skip hire company deliver my skip?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a number of local and national businesses. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we can supply customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.
What sort of waste can I dispose of in a skip?
You can fill up the skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly produced from house clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, dirt, bricks, garden trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in your skip will depend on the size you have hired, because there is a weight restriction. For instance, in the event that you are using a skip for heavy construction waste including concrete or garden soil, the biggest size you would be able to get is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be disposed of in the skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can typically have a skip for as long as 14 days from your delivery date. You can give a chosen pick up day at the time you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have loaded the skip, and then we will organise the collection. In most cases, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer during busy periods.
Do you deliver to other areas in Oxfordshire?
We offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service using a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Witney, Thame, Banbury, Bicester or any other site in Oxfordshire, we are able to assist.
Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure that the lorry has total access and that the skip can be located exactly where you need it. The same is true for those who have a skip delivered to company property, especially when gates restrict access.
On the other hand, when this isn’t achievable, you don’t need to stress. Simply tell us when you are making your booking, and we will take care of the rest.
How big is a builders skip?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most commonly hired for building and demolition jobs. There are usually two sizes which can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to dispose of large quantities of construction and demolition materials, such as dirt, concrete and stone.
Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for various other household and industrial waste disposal tasks.
What are the different skip sizes available?
We are able to offer a full-range of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip suitable for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A common option for larger sized projects, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Witney firms which generate a big amount of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Witney?
Generally, it is possible to have the skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to get this done, you must get consent from your local council in Witney, which is known as a skip permit. We can organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for your permit, and it may sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.
