Worcester Skip Hire FAQs
How long does it take to get a skip in Worcester?
We can in most cases supply skips to Worcester the following working day when your order is made before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking program will provide you with a range of delivery dates to select from. So whether you need a skip delivered asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
Am I allowed to get rid of electrical items in my skip?
Electronic products like TVs, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste and so can not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered products have to be separated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly manner.
Is it ok to stack up waste in my skip?
No, you are only allowed to fill the skip up to the level load line. Piling rubbish up above this line makes it unsafe to move, and you could be told to take away the extra waste before the skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip offered by skip firms and is great for small DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms offer you a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
How big is a builders skip?
The phrase builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The label comes from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are perfect for a multitude of residential and commercial projects. They are the biggest skips that you can use for hefty builders waste including top soil, stone and bricks.
Do I need to be there when the skip is delivered?
You don’t really need to be at your property when the skip will be delivered, but it will help. Being home when your skip is due for delivery means that you can ensure the delivery driver can be given complete access and that the skip can be placed precisely where you need it. Likewise, if your skip is being hired to business property, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, when you can’t be available at the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you place the order, and then we will arrange everything from there.
What will happen to the rubbish in the skip?
The items in the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer centre. Here the contents will be segregated by machines and also by hand into different waste streams, like metal, paper, stone and timber. Processing the waste in this way helps to increase the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.
What is the cost of skip hire in Worcester?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Worcester, insert your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display the sizes we offer in your town and how much each one costs to order. If the skip will be on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.
What can I put in my skip?
Before ordering your skip, you must check that the type of rubbish you need to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types it is possible to throw in a skip include household items like pieces of furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use your skip to get rid of building and demolition rubbish, like wood, soil, rubble, metals and gravel.
Some examples of restricted items include electrical products, tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently need to be discarded separately from your general waste.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Worcester?
This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit when your skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or on your business premises.
If you need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know during the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can place the skip on private land, it will save you some money.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a huge container that can be used to dispose of large quantities of rubbish. These containers are primarily for business use but can be hired by domestic clients too. Having said that, you will want lots of room because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger when compared to the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
As a result of the size, these containers should only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and paper, so they are not suited to disposing of concrete and bricks.

We have designed our online booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first step is to enter your address to see the range of skip sizes we can deliver in Worcester.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?
Generally speaking, almost all skips can be provided with a drop-down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and location. If you require a drop down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, since they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Yes, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can provide skips to locations across Worcestershire, such as Worcester, Tenbury Wells, Redditch and Bromsgrove. So regardless of where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
