What kinds of rubbish am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?

A skip can be used to get rid of lots of different types of waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and handling numerous materials generated from building jobs, garden landscaping and home tidy-ups. Examples of allowed waste materials can include:

  • Pieces of furniture
  • Hedge cuttings
  • Soil
  • Stone
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many materials are usually permitted, so whether you wish to discard metals, plastics, wood or fabric, we can usually take your waste away.

The quantity and waste types you put in your skip may vary based on which size skip you chosen. Skips do have a weight limit for safety purposes. So if you wish to get rid of soil and hardcore, as an example, the biggest size you would be able to use will be the 8 cubic yard skip.

Are there any items that I can’t throw in the skip?

There are a few waste materials that you will not be permitted to discard in the skip. The reason for this is that these goods include hazardous materials which could be damaging to the environment. They can even be damaging to human health, therefore they need to be discarded separately within UK law.

Some examples of the products that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?

It usually is a good idea to be there when anyone delivers something to your property. You can then make sure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be dropped just where you need it.

The same thing applies if you have a business. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.

However, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.

Is it ok to fill my skip higher than the level load line?

It is very important not to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being required to take off excess waste before it can be collected. Irrespective of what size you hire, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, because moving an overloaded skip will be hazardous, as objects could drop and lead to injuries or damage to other people.

To prevent this situation, please be sure to hire a skip size suitable for your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some further waste to dispose of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.

How many different skip sizes are there?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Woodhall Spa, you have several sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 yard container, also known as a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is great for modest home clearances and DIY tasks.

Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most common sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their large capacity also means they are suitable for household clearances including large objects like pieces of furniture and beds.

We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for those with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These containers are only suited to lightweight materials, so they can not be used to get rid of soil or stone.

To get more details about the different capacities available, such as proportions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Am I allowed to get rid of electrical products in my skip?

Unfortunately it is not permitted, as electronic items such as old televisions, fridges, pcs and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly manner.

How large is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial commercial size skips used primarily in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for organisations that generate large volumes of waste.

Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Woodhall Spa?

This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if the skip is on private property, such as a drive or inside your company premises.

If you do have to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can have your skip on your own land, it will save you some money.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

You can usually have the skip for up to 14 days from the delivery date. You may provide a chosen collection date at the time you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have finished, and we will arrange your collection. Usually, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer over busy periods.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?

After you have finished with your skip, we come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre in or local to Woodhall Spa where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

How can I order a skip online?

We have created our online booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first task is to type in your delivery address to see the range of skip sizes we are able to provide in Woodhall Spa. Pick the best size to meet your requirements and enter the details of when and where you need your skip to be delivered.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are perfect for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them ideal for driveways.

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furnishings and old toys to paving slabs and soil. With a total capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you needing to make numerous trips to the local recycling centre.

How long does it take to get a skip in Woodhall Spa?

We will make sure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the next day.

Although we are not able to promise an exact delivery time, we will do our best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

It is important to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will usually incur a fee for the wasted trip.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most commonly used for construction jobs. There are generally two sizes which can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to get rid of substantial quantities of building and demolition materials, including earth, concrete and rock.

Even though they are branded a builders skip, these can be used for many other residential and commercial waste disposal tasks.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Woodhall Spa?

To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a number of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we can provide customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.

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

When you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is great for disposing of heavy building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked in the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop down door, although they are more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are generally small enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you want a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our best to make sure a skip that has a drop door is provided.
