Wymondham Skip Hire FAQs
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
The regular hire term will be 14 days from your date of delivery. However, at the time you book the skip, you can provide a collection date that is ideal for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is loaded earlier than anticipated, let us know, and we will pick it up as soon as possible.
We can usually make collections within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to understand that this is not always the case at busy times. Once collected, your waste will be transported to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed and sorted.
Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Wymondham?
In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you want the skip to be situated on land outside of your company or home, you must receive authorisation from the local council in Wymondham, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we would gladly organise this for you, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for the skip permit, plus you should know before placing your order that obtaining the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.
Am I allowed to load up my skip above level load mark?
No, you must only pack the skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste up over this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you may be told to take away the surplus waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.
What will happen to the rubbish in the skip?
After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer station either in or local to Wymondham where we will sort the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
What skip sizes can have a drop door?
If you are selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is designed for getting rid of heavy building and construction rubbish, as it can be walked in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop door, though these are more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our utmost to ensure a container that has a drop door is supplied.
Can you deliver skips across Norfolk?
Indeed, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skip sizes to areas across Norfolk, such as Wymondham, Thetford, Caister-on-Sea and King’s Lynn. So wherever you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Wymondham?
To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Wymondham, enter your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you the skip sizes we provide in your area and how much each size will cost you to order. If your skip will be on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.
How quick can you deliver a skip in Wymondham?
We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you have requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your booking prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we strive to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery site, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will result in a fee for a wasted journey.
Who will deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire companies to supply skips to our customers in Wymondham and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner companies are approved and tested to ensure they satisfy our standards for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old or broken electrical waste products in your skip. This can include things such as laptops or computers, hobs, tumble dryers, freezers and tv sets. Electronic products can’t be disposed of in the skip since they can have hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.
How do I order a skip in Wymondham?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip is going to be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or public property (like the road). Then, select the day you want your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. All done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Wymondham on the date you have selected.
Am I allowed to dispose of all kinds of waste in a skip?
You are able to throw a variety of waste types into the skip. This can include timber, tile, plastics or bricks from a property clearance. Plant and bush clippings, soil and stone from garden tasks are allowed also. Cupboards from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be thrown in the skip.
There are, however, a few items that you can’t put in a skip due to the potential environment or health risk they can cause.
You cannot throw out your refrigerator, printer or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items consist of hazardous components in one type or another. They need to be discarded separately from normal rubbish.
If you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to schedule a separate collection for this waste. Feel free to get in touch for further details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not have to be at home when we deliver your skip. As long as we can gain access to where you need it delivered, we can take care of it all.
For those who are not going to be in, simply let us know any relevant delivery instructions when booking the order. For instance, you may prefer the skip to be positioned at a particular side of your drive. Or you may want to ensure the skip does not hinder entry to your garage.
Whatever the case might be, provide the details when ordering, and we will ensure your directions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
How many different skip sizes are available?
We are able to offer a full-range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip perfect for modest DIY tasks and house clearances. A popular choice for larger sized tasks, renovations and building work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Wymondham companies with a big quantity of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact skip provided by skip firms and is great for small DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies will offer a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
What is classed as a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builders skip means the size of skip most often used for building and demolition jobs. There are generally two skip sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips which can be used to get rid of large volumes of building and demolition waste, including soil, concrete and rock.
Although labelled a builders skip, they can of course be used for various other household and industrial waste disposal tasks.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are huge industrial size skips that are used primarily within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for organisations that generate large quantities of waste.
