How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The name stems from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are suited to numerous types of household and business jobs. They are the biggest skip sizes that can be used for weighty builders waste like top soil, stone and concrete.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a huge container used to dispose of large quantities of rubbish. These bins are predominantly for business use but can be used by domestic clients also. Having said that, you will need a lot of room because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger than the typical skip you will see on the roadside.
Due to the size, roro containers should only be provided for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suited to getting rid of concrete and bricks.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We will usually give a next day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, as to be on public property (for example a road), you need to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.
Due to numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it turning up in a morning or afternoon slot.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Wragby, you will have several options to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for modest domestic clearances and DIY jobs.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also means they are suitable for house clear ups involving bulky items such as household furniture and beds.
We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even larger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only appropriate for lightweight waste materials, so they can not be used to get rid of garden soil or concrete.
For more information about the various sizes offered, such as proportions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Can I get a skip with a drop down door?
The vast majority of skips can be delivered with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, such as dirt and gravel, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into different waste materials, such as wood, metals, paper, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How can I order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip shall be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on council property (such as the road). After that, pick the date you would like your skip to get delivered. Check your order and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your skip to Wragby on the date you have chosen.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Wragby?
The cost of hiring a skip in Wragby depends on the size of skip you want. The lowest priced skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you need a larger sized skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also increase if you need to have the skip on the road, because you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Can I throw electronic products in my skip?
Electronic objects like televisions, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste and therefore cannot be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered items must be separated from other materials. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
What things can I put in the skip?
Before getting your skip, it is important to make sure that the kind of waste materials you want to dispose of is allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types it is possible to discard in a skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You can also use your skip to throw out building and construction waste, including timber, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Some examples of prohibited items include electrical products, tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently have to be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?
It is very important to not overload your skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take off excess waste before it can be picked up. Irrespective of what size you order, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, as moving an overloaded bin is dangerous, as materials could fall and result in injuries or damage to others.
To avoid this situation, please be sure you order a skip size suited to your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full and you have additional rubbish to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
Do I need to be at home when the skip will be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be there when anybody delivers something to your home. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be placed precisely where you want it.
The same thing applies for those who have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, should it be unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
The regular hire time frame will be 14 days from your delivery date. However, when you book your skip, you can choose a pick up date that is ideal for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if your skip is fully loaded sooner than expected, let us know, and we will collect it at the earliest opportunity.
We will usually be out to get your skip within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to remember that this is not always the case at busy times. Once collected, the skip will be taken to your local waste recycling facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are great for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furniture and broken baby toys to paving slabs and bricks. With a volume of approximately 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip will save you needing to make multiple visits to your local recycling centre.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Wragby?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if your skip is on private property, like a drive or on your business premises.
If you need to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have your skip on private land, you will save some money.
