Yeovil Skip Hire FAQs
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, that will provide you with sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you do need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, if you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just tell us when you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
Where will the rubbish go once the skip is picked up?
Once you have finished with your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste recycling centre either in or local to Yeovil where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
You are able to fill up your skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from house clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include timber, garden soil, stone, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in the skip will depend on which size you have hired, as there is a weight restriction. For instance, if you are using the skip for heavy construction waste including bricks or soil, the biggest size you could use is an 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in your skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.
Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Electric powered items such as televisions, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste type and so should not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered items need to be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
How do you hire a skip in Yeovil?
Ordering a skip shouldn’t be hard. That is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, enter in your delivery postcode to see all the different skip sizes we can deliver to Yeovil. Select the size you wish to order, and confirm whether it will be delivered on private property. Type in your details and then make payment using our secure payment platform.
After your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with all your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
What skip sizes will have a drop down door?
The majority of skips can be delivered with a drop door, which makes them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the bin, especially with heavy materials, like garden soil and rubble, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, like furniture.
What sizes do skips come in?
We are able to provide a wide range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip great for modest DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A common choice for bigger tasks, renovations and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Yeovil companies which generate a significant amount of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Should I be in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t really need to be at home when your skip is going to be delivered, however it can help. Being there when the skip is being delivered means that you can make sure the driver can be given complete access and that the skip is dropped exactly where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is being delivered to a company premises, we will appreciate your support during the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, in the event you can’t be around during delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask that you let us know when you place the order, and we will organise things from there.
How soon can you deliver a skip in Yeovil?
We will ensure your skip is delivered on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the next day.
Although we can’t promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
It is important to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted journey.

By utilising a network of regional and national waste management businesses, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to Yeovil, Nailsea or Dulverton, we have got you covered.

These companies are comprehensively vetted to guarantee they match the high expectations we demand in terms of service, price and environmental performance.
What is classed as a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most frequently hired for building and construction work. There are generally two sizes which can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers which can be used to get rid of large volumes of building and demolition materials, including soil, concrete and bricks.
Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for multiple other domestic and commercial waste disposal jobs.
If I require a skip on the road in Yeovil, will I need a permit?
If at all possible, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface. If you are doing a residential task, then the drive will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither is available, the road or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public land, you will need to obtain a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be dropped on the street, grass verge or other public property in Yeovil. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be issued for you. An additional charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.
What is the cost of skip hire in Yeovil?
This depends upon the skip size you want and whether you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the lowest priced choice. The most costly and largest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.

How much waste will a mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the smallest size delivered by skip firms and is ideal for smaller DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms provide a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are large commercial scale skips used mainly within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for companies that generate large volumes of waste materials.
Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?
It is essential never to overfill a skip. You should not pass the level load mark that is shown along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it becomes very hazardous to transport. This means that if you overload your skip, you might be asked to take off the surplus waste. No matter how secure you think the skip to be, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be dangerous and is therefore prohibited.
