Yarmouth Skip Hire FAQs

Do you use local skip hire companies in Yarmouth?

Since we provide a national waste management service, we utilise an extensive network of approved businesses. These can include small family-run skip hire companies to national waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental requirements.

If I would like a skip on a road in Yarmouth, will I need a permit?

This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if the skip is on your private property, like a driveway or inside your business premises.

Should you need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, and we can make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate the skip on private land, you will save some pounds.

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

If you are searching for a low-cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to take on numerous jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be positioned on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.

Although most often chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can also handle small commercial jobs.

How long can I keep the skip for?

You can typically keep your skip for as many as 14 days from the date of delivery. You are able to give a chosen collection date when you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can let us know once you have loaded the skip, and then we will arrange the collection. Normally, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer over hectic times.

What is the cost of skip hire in Yarmouth?

This will depend on the size you want and if you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the cheapest choice. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in industrial settings.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most often hired for building and construction work. There are generally two different sizes which can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to get rid of large quantities of construction and demolition waste materials, such as dirt, rubble and rock.

Although labelled a builders skip, they can of course be used for multiple other residential and commercial waste disposal tasks.

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

It is usually best if you can be available when anybody delivers something to your property. That allows you to make sure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be dropped exactly where you need it.

The same goes if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.

Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

How long will it take to get a skip in Yarmouth?

We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you confirm your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery area, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will result in a fee for a wasted journey.

What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?

The contents of the skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling facility. Here the waste will be separated by machines and by hand into various waste streams, such as metal, cardboard, concrete and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste ending up in landfill.

Am I able to have a skip which has a drop down door?

Generally, nearly all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you need a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful if choosing a big builder’s skip, as it allows you to wheelbarrow rubbish into the skip. This is not so important for mini skips, as they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Can you deliver to other areas in Isle of Wight?

In addition to delivering skips to Yarmouth, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Isle of Wight. By utilising our network of local and national waste management and recycling businesses, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business in Yarmouth, Shanklin or Sandown, we have got you covered.

What different sizes do skips come in?

We supply a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip suitable for small DIY projects and domestic clearances. A common choice for larger sized projects, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.

For Yarmouth businesses with a significant quantity of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial industrial scale skips used predominantly within the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for organisations that generate significant amounts of waste materials.

Am I allowed to throw electronic items in the skip?

Unfortunately not, since electrical products such as old televisions, fridge freezers, printers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects need to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly fashion.

How do I order a skip?

Hiring a skip in Yarmouth through us is incredibly simple. Select the skip size you need and then input a few details about where and when you would like your skip delivered. You then pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and arrange to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

Am I able to put all types of rubbish in my skip?

Your skip may be used to get rid of lots of different types of waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and handling a multitude of items produced from construction jobs, garden landscaping and house tidy-ups. Examples of permitted waste types include:

  • Home furniture
  • Tree trimmings
  • Garden soil
  • Hardcore
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Cabinets and units

Most materials will be accepted, therefore whether you wish to get rid of furniture, plastics, timber or clothing, we can normally take your rubbish away.

The quantity and things you put in the skip may vary based on the size skip you ordered. All skips do have a weight limit for safety reasons. So to be able to get rid of soil and hardcore, as an example, the biggest size you would be allowed to hire would be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

What type of items am I not allowed to put in a skip?

There are several waste items you will not be permitted to dispose of in your skip. The main reason for this is that these items include hazardous components which could be damaging to the environment. They could also be dangerous to human health, and so they need to be disposed of separately under UK law.

A few of the items that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Is it okay to load my skip higher than the level load mark?

It is very important to not overload your skip, as you run the risk of being told to take off excessive waste prior to it being picked up. Whatever size you hire, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, as transporting an overloaded skip is hazardous, as rubbish could fall and result in personal injury or damage to other people.

To prevent this situation, please be sure to order a skip size appropriate for your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some additional waste to dispose of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
