Yate Skip Hire FAQs

Do you deliver to other areas in Gloucestershire?

We provide a UK wide skip hire and recycling service through a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you need skip hire in Yate, Cheltenham, Gloucester, Northleach or any other site in Gloucestershire, we are able to help.

Am I allowed to throw away electronic items in my skip?

Electronic products including televisions, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore should not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered products need to be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly manner.

How much will skip hire in Yate cost?

The cost of getting a skip in Yate will depend on the size of skip you require. The least expensive option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you want a bigger skip, such as an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also increase if you want to have the skip on the road, since you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

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 commonly supplied for building work. There are usually two sizes which can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers which you can use to get rid of substantial amounts of construction and demolition waste, such as soil, concrete and stone.

Although they are branded a builders skip, these can of course be used for many other residential and business waste disposal tasks.

What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Yate?

This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you would like to hire. Tell us whether the skip shall be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or local authority property (like the street). Then, choose the day you would like your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Yate on the date you have selected.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

No, you don’t need to be home when we are delivering your skip. So long as we can gain access to where you want it positioned, we can manage everything.

For those who will not be at home, simply let us have any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For example, you might want the skip to be positioned at a particular side of your driveway. Or you may want to be sure that the skip does not hinder entry to your garage.

No matter what the case may be, provide the details when you place your order, and we will make sure the directions will be passed on to the lorry driver.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

Typically, you can keep your skip for a maximum of two week. This means you don’t have to rush through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is loaded before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest skip available from skip firms and is perfect for smaller DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies offer you a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge container that can be used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These bins are predominantly for commercial use but can be hired by domestic clients as well. However, you will want a good amount of space since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger than the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

As a result of the size, roro skips should only be hired for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suited to getting rid of concrete and bricks.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

Our company offers a complete variety of skip capacities to domestic and industrial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the massive 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

Listed below are the different sized skips on offer, with a rough guide to the amount of rubbish each skip can hold:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
  • 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
  • 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
  • 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

Can I get a skip that has a drop door?

Using a skip which has a drop down door makes filling waste into it much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste materials such as garden soil or stone, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up large bulky items such as household furniture easier as well.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, however this may sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when you place your booking if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to provide this.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Yate?

A local skip hire firm will likely deliver your skip in Yate. We work with a network of both regional and nationwide providers to allow us to offer our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully vetted to make certain they fulfill the high standards we require in terms of service, price and environmental performance.

What will happen 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 nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into various waste streams, like timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Am I allowed to put all types of waste in a skip?

Before getting a skip, you must check that the kind of waste you want to discard is allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.

Waste types you can put in your skip include home items like furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You can also use your skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, like wood, soil, rubble, metals and gravel.

Some examples of prohibited items include things like electronic products, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently have to be discarded separately from general rubbish.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will make sure your skip will be provided on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the very next day.

Although we can’t promise a precise delivery time, we will do our best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

You should ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will often incur a charge for the wasted journey.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Yate?

In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need the skip to be located on land outside of your company or residence, you have got to secure permission from your local authority in Yate, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we will be happy to organise this for you, and so it’s one less point to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the permit, and you should be aware before ordering that obtaining the licence can often take up to 2 working days.

Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?

Please don’t overfill your skip as this makes it hazardous to transport, and you will then have to empty any contents over the level load mark. This means you are unable to make use of sheets of timber, doors or some other item, as this will increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty to ensure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please be sure to hire the correct size of skip for your needs and get in contact if you’re unsure which size you require. We would be pleased to help.
