Frequently Asked Questions
How do I order?
Once you have decided what you require (and don’t forget we are more than happy to help you with this on the telephone) then pick the size that best suits your needs and either order online, call us or e-mail us your name and contact telephone and we will call you back.
Where can the skips be placed?
Skips cannot be placed on the highway without a permit, correct signage and lights. Please contact us if you cannot place on private land (remember the grass verge outside your house may not be owned by you!) as we can still help you arrange this. Alternatively, we may be able to organise a wait and load facility.
What access do I need to have?
As the vehicles delivering to your house are LGV’s and normally very large, please make sure that there is sufficient access to allow it in/out safely. If you are unsure, please contact us and we can provide you with the approximate dimensions required.
What can I put in the skip?
Skips are for general and inert waste only, no Fridges, no TV’s or monitors, hazardous waste that includes paints, solvents, liquids or asbestos. For a full list of things that cannot be put in a skip please contact us.
What size skip do I need?
Be realistic about what you have to throw away as getting two skips can be far more expensive than one big one! All skips must be level loaded so they can be safely transported on the road. Not all skips can cope with inert/builders waste, as the vehicle may not be able to lift or transport it legally. (The most common sized skip ordered is a 6 yard skip).
Will my waste be Recycled?
At Batemans we endeavor to make sure that at least 90% of our skips are sent to a MRF (Material’s Recycling Facility) and anything that can be recovered will be sent for recycling.
