Wolverhampton Skip Hire FAQs
Do all skips have a drop down door?
The majority of containers can be delivered with a drop door, which makes them much easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the skip, especially with heavy materials, like dirt and concrete, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, like furniture.
What waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
It is possible to put a variety of waste types into your skip. This includes timber, floor tiles, metal or concrete from a house clearance. Tree and bush clippings, dirt and rock from garden tasks are allowed as well. Cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be thrown in a skip.
There are, however, a few things that you cannot put in a skip a result of the potential environment or health risks they might trigger.
You are unable to get rid of your fridge, computer monitor or your old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items incorporate hazardous components in one kind or another. They need to be discarded separately from normal waste.
If you want hazardous waste removal, we might be able to arrange a separate collection for this waste. Feel free to email for further details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
Who will deliver my skip?
We use a network of both regional and national skip hire firms to deliver skips to our clients in Wolverhampton and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner firms are approved and evaluated to make sure they satisfy our expectations for price, service, recycling and reliability.
What size is a builders skip?
The builders skip is the most common skip hired throughout the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builders skip is fantastic for most building tasks, which is where the name stems from.
The 8 yd builder’s skip is the biggest option which can be used for heavy waste materials such as dirt, concrete, stone and gravel.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Wolverhampton?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you need the skip to be situated on land outside of your company or home, you must secure authorisation from the local authority in Wolverhampton, which is called a skip permit. If required, we will be glad to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less point to worry about. The council does charge a fee for your skip permit, plus you should know before placing your order that obtaining the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
Is it ok to load the skip higher than the level load line?
It is important to not overload a skip. You should not pass the level load line indicated along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it will become very dangerous to transport. This means that if you overload the skip, you may be required to take off the surplus rubbish. No matter how safe you think the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This can be dangerous and is not allowed.
Will you deliver skips across West Midlands?
Indeed, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply skips to locations across West Midlands, such as Wolverhampton, Solihull, Sedgley and Willenhall. So no matter where you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to get rid of large quantities of waste materials. Primarily, these type of skips are used for business applications. Having said that, domestic clients may also order them. It is essential to take into account the space they occupy, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be utilised for light-weight waste including paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of soil and concrete.
What will happen to the rubbish?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into different waste materials, like wood, metals, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Am I allowed to put electrical items in my skip?
I’m afraid not, since electronic products including old televisions, fridge freezers, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly way.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can usually keep the skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, you have the choice of offering a preferred collection date when making your order.
Alternatively, simply tell us when you have finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It could take a little bit longer to collect your skip during busy times, but we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
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 your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to tackle many jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be located on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most commonly chosen by household customers, the mini skip can even tackle small commercial jobs.
Should I be in when the skip is going to be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be in when it is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip can be placed precisely where you need it. This also is applicable if you have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly when gates restrict access.
On the other hand, when this isn’t feasible, you do not have to worry. Just tell us when making your booking, and then we will take care of the rest.
What is the cost of skip hire in Wolverhampton?
Our goal is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Wolverhampton. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip that you order.

What sizes do skips come in?
Skips are offered in a selection of sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small residential jobs.
The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a great choice for garden shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
When you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to undertake, a builder’s skip might be the most suitable option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label implies, these represent the most typical sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, like soil and rubble. However they can just as well be used for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We also deliver 10-16 cubic yard bins and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
