Worksop Skip Hire FAQs

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builders skip means the size of skip most frequently supplied for construction work. There are usually two different sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of substantial amounts of building and demolition waste, including soil, concrete and stone.

Although branded a builders skip, they can be used for various other household and industrial waste disposal tasks.

The price of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, this will provide you with sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you do need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Naturally, should you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.

What is a mini skip?

When you have a small quantity of waste to dispose of, the mini skip may be the perfect solution. What size is called a mini skip differs from company to company, determined by what sizes they have.

The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. The cost depends on the specific size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are ideal for residential jobs like modest DIY projects and garden clean ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container used to get rid of huge amounts of waste materials. Predominantly, these type of containers are hired for commercial uses. However, domestic clients may also hire them. You should consider the space they will occupy, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be utilised for light materials including plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of soil and stone.

Will you deliver to other areas in Nottinghamshire?

We provide a UK wide skip hire and waste management service by using a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you need skip hire in Worksop, Kimberley, Mansfield, Hucknall or any other site in Nottinghamshire, we are able to assist.

Should I be in when the skip will be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be in at the time the skip is delivered. You can then be sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip is placed exactly where you want it. The same applies when you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates restrict access.

Having said that, when this isn’t achievable, you do not need to worry. Simply tell us when making your booking, and we will handle everything.

If I require a skip on a road in Worksop, will I need to get a permit?

In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need your skip to be placed on land outside of your company or residence, you will have to obtain permission from the local council in Worksop, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we would be happy to organise this for you, so it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for your skip license, plus you should know before booking that getting the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Worksop?

Our goal is to give you the most affordable skip hire service in Worksop. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip that you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip situated on the highway or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the additional expense of a skip permit.

What can I put in the skip?

You can throw a variety of rubbish into the skip. This includes wood, ceramic tiles, plastics or bricks from a property clearance. Plant and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden tasks are permitted too. Worktops and units from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be discarded in a skip.

There are, however, some materials that can’t be put in a skip because of the potential environment or health risks they can trigger.

You are unable to get rid of your refrigerator, television or your old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these items incorporate hazardous materials in one kind or another. They must be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.

Should you require hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to organise a separate collection for this waste. Feel free to get in touch for further information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling centre.

Can I get rid of electronic products in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric objects have to be kept separate from general waste to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric products like washing machines, monitors, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.

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

It is important not to overfill your skip, as you risk being required to remove excess waste before it can be picked up. Irrespective of what size you hire, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, since moving an overloaded bin can be dangerous, as materials could drop and result in injury or damage to others.

To avoid this problem, please be sure to order a skip size suitable for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have some more waste to get rid of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?

Using a skip that has a drop door makes loading rubbish into the skip much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste such as soil or rubble, which can then be loaded into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of big bulky objects such as household furniture easier as well.

The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, however this will sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.

Where does my waste be taken to once the skip is collected?

As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into the various waste streams, like wood, metals, paper, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

When will my skip be delivered?

Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We will typically provide a next day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip on private property, since to go on public property (such as a road), you must obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.

Due to numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it to be delivered within a AM or PM slot.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Worksop?

We use a large network of both regional and national skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Worksop and the rest of the country. Our partner skip companies are approved and evaluated to make certain they satisfy our expectations for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.
