Wiveliscombe Skip Hire FAQs
What different sizes do skips come in?
We offer a wide range of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip perfect for small DIY tasks and house clearances. A common option for larger sized projects, renovations and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Wiveliscombe businesses with a significant volume of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How long does it take to get a skip in Wiveliscombe?
We will ensure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the next day.
Although we cannot promise a precise delivery time, we will do our best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You will need to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will normally incur a charge for the wasted journey.
Am I allowed to throw away electronic products in the skip?
Electrical products including TVs, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous type of waste and so can not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered items have to be separated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
Nearly all skips can be provided with a drop door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the container, particularly with heavy materials, like soil and bricks, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.
What size roll-on roll-off skips are available?
If you operate a company in Wiveliscombe and wish to dispose of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that are available.
As the label indicates, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike conventional skips, that are lifted by using chains.
Should I be in when the skip is delivered?
No, you don’t need to be home when we deliver your skip. Provided that we can access where you need it positioned, we will take care of it all.
In the event you will not be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when you place the order. For instance, you might need the skip to be positioned at a particular part of the drive. Alternatively, you might need to make sure the skip does not obstruct use of your garage.
Whatever the situation might be, provide the information when ordering, and we will make sure the directions will be passed to the lorry driver.
Is it ok to load up my skip higher than level load mark?
No, you can only fill up the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste up over this line would make it dangerous to transport, and you might be asked to take off the surplus waste before your skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and it can also make it overweight.
Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Wiveliscombe?
In most cases, it will be possible to have a skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But to do this, you will need to have approval from your local council in Wiveliscombe, which is called a skip permit. We can organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
You can generally hire a skip for up to 14 days from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up will be as convenient as possible, there is the option of offering a preferred collection day when placing your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the following working day.
It could take a little while longer to collect your skip over busy periods, but we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.
What is classed as a builders skip?
The phrase builders skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The label originates from the fact that these are the most common sizes ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are suitable for numerous domestic and commercial jobs. These are the biggest size skips that can be used for hefty builders waste including top soil, stone and bricks.
Am I able to throw all sorts of rubbish in my skip?
Before ordering your skip, it is important to check that the type of rubbish you wish to get rid of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials must be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types it is possible to put in a skip include household goods like furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You may also use your skip to discard building and demolition rubbish, like bricks, soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Examples of forbidden items include electronic goods, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. These are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently need to be discarded separately from your general rubbish.
Will a Wiveliscombe skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip hire company will likely deliver your skip in Wiveliscombe. We make use of a network of both local and national companies to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK.

What happens to the waste in my skip?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets sorted into a range of waste streams, including stone, soil and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
If you have a small amount of waste to get rid of, the mini skip could be the ideal choice. What size is called a mini skip varies from business to business, determined by what sizes they supply.
The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. The price is based on the actual size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are great for household jobs such as small DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
