Wotton-under-Edge Skip Hire FAQs

Can I load up the skip above the top?

Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will be asked to remove any materials over the level load line. This means you are unable to use sheets of wood, doors or any other item, since this will increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty to ensure that bins are not overfilled or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure to order the correct size of skip for your needs and get in touch if you are uncertain which size you require. We will be pleased to help.

Am I able to throw away electronic items in the skip?

Electric powered objects like television sets, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste and therefore can not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric objects have to be segregated from other waste. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

When will my skip be delivered?

We can normally supply skips to Wotton-under-Edge the following working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking platform offers you various delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like the skip delivered ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

You can typically hire the skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, you have the choice of offering a preferred collection time when placing your order.

Alternatively, just 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 longer to pick up your skip during busy times, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.

Do you deliver to other areas in Gloucestershire?

Certainly. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we can deliver skips to both residential and commercial customers across Gloucestershire and anywhere else in the UK.

Where do you take the waste from my skip?

Once you have finished with your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre in or local to Wotton-under-Edge where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?

You don’t really need to be at home when your skip is being delivered, however it will help. Being home whenever the skip is being delivered means that you can make sure the lorry can be given complete access and that your skip is dropped precisely where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is hired to your company property, we will appreciate your support during delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.

Even so, for those who can’t be available during the time of delivery, don’t worry. We just ask that you tell us when you book your order, and we will organise everything from there.

What is the cost of skip hire in Wotton-under-Edge?

Our goal is to provide you with the most affordable skip hire service in Wotton-under-Edge. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip that you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have the skip placed on the road or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the additional cost of the skip permit.

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?

For those who have a small quantity of waste to throw out, a mini skip may be the ideal solution. What size is identified as a mini skip is different from company to company, determined by what sizes they have.

The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to have a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. Cost depends on the particular size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are perfect for domestic jobs including small DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

How do you order a skip?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you would like to hire. Tell us if the skip is going to be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or local authority property (like the road). After that, pick the date you need the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Wotton-under-Edge on the date you have chosen.

Will a Wotton-under-Edge skip hire company deliver my skip?

A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Wotton-under-Edge. We work with a network of both local and nationwide providers to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are comprehensively assessed to make certain they fulfill the high expectations we require when it comes to service, price and environmental performance.

Which size skips have got a drop door?

Generally speaking, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you want a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip that has a drop door is primarily helpful if choosing a big builder’s skip, as it allows you to wheelbarrow waste into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What sizes do skips come in?

We can provide a wide selection of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip excellent for modest DIY jobs and house clearances. A common choice for larger tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard skip.

For Wotton-under-Edge businesses which have a large volume of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What is the size of a builders skip?

As the name implies, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most frequently used for building and demolition jobs. There are usually two sizes that may be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that can be used to dispose of substantial amounts of construction and demolition waste materials, such as garden soil, rubble and stone.

Although labelled a builders skip, they can be used for a number of other domestic and industrial waste disposal jobs.

What can I put in the skip?

Before hiring your skip, it is essential to make sure that the type of waste materials you wish to dispose of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials must 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.

Waste types you can discard in your skip include home goods like furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use a skip to discard building and construction rubbish, including bricks, top soil, stone, metals and gravel.

Examples of prohibited items include electrical items, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately from any general waste.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you manage a business in Wotton-under-Edge and need to get rid of large volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers that you can hire.

As the label suggests, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, in contrast to standard skips, which are lifted using chains.

Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Wotton-under-Edge?

Ideally, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface. When you are doing a household job, then a drive is going to be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, if neither is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public land, you have got to obtain a permit from your local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be dropped on a road, grass verge or other public property in Wotton-under-Edge. If this is required, we will request the license to be granted on your behalf. An extra fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your skip.

Other areas covered include Nailsworth, Thornbury, Chipping Sodbury, Tewkesbury, Moreton-in-Marsh, Coleford, Newent and Stonehouse.
