Woburn Sands Skip Hire FAQs
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest size available from skip firms and is good for small DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms offer you a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The term builder’s skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The name originates from the fact that they are the most typical sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are ideal for a wide variety of domestic and business jobs. These are the biggest sizes which you can use for heavy builders waste like soil, stone and bricks.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you run a business in Woburn Sands and want to dispose of substantial amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container could be a great option. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the label indicates, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to regular skips, that are lifted by using chains.
Will you deliver skips across Buckinghamshire?
Yes. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to deliver skips to both household and commercial customers throughout Buckinghamshire and anywhere else in the UK.
Am I able to put electrical products in the skip?
No, you can not dispose of old or unwanted electronic waste products in your skip. This can include such things as computers, hobs, dishwashers, freezers and monitors. Electric items can’t be thrown in your skip as they can have dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
Using a skip that has a drop down door can make loading rubbish into it so much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste materials such as soil and concrete, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading large bulky items like pieces of furniture a lot easier as well.
Most skip containers can be provided with a drop door, but this may sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to supply this.
What waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?
You can put a wide array of waste into the skip. This includes timber, bathroom tiles, metal or concrete from a household clearance. Plant and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden tasks are allowed as well. Cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be discarded in your skip.
There are, however, things that you are not allowed to put in a skip a result of the potential ecological or health risk they can trigger.
You can’t throw out your refrigerator, printer or your old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things contain hazardous components in one kind or another. They should be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
Should you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to arrange a separate collection for this waste. Please email for more information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
What are the different skip sizes available?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Woburn Sands, you will have multiple sizes to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for modest home clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most popular sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also means they are well suited for house clear ups including bulky objects such as furniture and beds.
We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people and businesses with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they can’t be hired to get rid of garden soil or stone.
To get more information about the various capacities available, such as proportions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Woburn Sands?
This will depend on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a permit if it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit when your skip will be on your private property, such as a driveway or on your company premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate your skip on private land, it will save you some money.
How long will it take to get a skip in Woburn Sands?
We will ensure your skip will be provided when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.
Although we cannot promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You should make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will often incur a fee for the wasted trip.
Who will deliver my skip?
We utilise a network of both local and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our customers in Woburn Sands and the rest of the country. Each of our partner companies are approved and evaluated to make certain they satisfy our standards for price, customer service, recycling and reliability.

Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we are able to gain access to the place you need it located, we can manage it all.
In case you will not be at home, simply let us know any relevant delivery directions when you place your order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be located at a particular area of your driveway. Alternatively, you might need to ensure that the skip does not obstruct access to your garage.
No matter what the case might be, simply let us know when you place your order, and then we will make sure your instructions are passed to the lorry driver.
What will happen to the rubbish?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into the various waste materials, like wood, metals, paper, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Is it ok to fill the skip higher than the top?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it hazardous to transport, and you will probably have to remove any items over the level load line. This means you can not make use of sheets of wood, doors or another item, as this will increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty to make sure that bins aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure to hire the correct sized skip to meet your needs and get in touch if you’re uncertain which size is best. We would be glad to help.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
The regular hire term will be 14 days from the delivery date. Having said that, when you book the skip, you can select a collection date that is best for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if the skip is loaded sooner than expected, let us know, and we will pick it up as soon as possible.
Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. But, it is important to understand that this may not always be possible at busier periods. Once collected, the skip will be transported to a local waste recycling station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
