Barnsley Skip Hire FAQs

How much will skip hire in Barnsley cost?

To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Barnsley, insert your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you the skip sizes we offer in your town and how much each option will cost to hire. If your skip will be on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.

Am I allowed to fill up the skip above the level load line?

It is important to not overload a skip, as you run the risk of being told to take off surplus waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of the size you hire, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, because moving an overloaded skip will be dangerous, as rubbish could drop and cause injuries or damage to others.

To prevent this issue, please be sure you order a size appropriate for your waste removal needs. If your skip is full but you have further waste to get rid of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.

Where will you take the waste from my skip?

Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the different waste materials, like timber, metals, plastics, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How big is a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builders skip means the size of skip most frequently supplied for construction jobs. There are usually two sizes that can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to get rid of large amounts of building and demolition waste, such as earth, rubble and rock.

Although labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for multiple other domestic and commercial waste disposal tasks.

Am I able to throw away electrical products in the skip?

I’m afraid this is not allowed, since electrical products like old televisions, cookers, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly way.

Who will deliver my skip?

As we provide a nationwide skip service, we use a comprehensive network of approved businesses. These include small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental principles.

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

If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be in on the day it is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip is positioned precisely where you want it. The same applies when you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates limit access.

However, if that is not possible, you don’t have to worry. Just let us know when placing your booking, and then we will take care of everything.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to a fortnight. In most cases, that provides you with sufficient time to fill up the skip. However, if you need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, should you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just tell us when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Barnsley?

This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit when your skip will be on your private property, like a drive or on your company premises.

Should you have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, and we can make the required arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have your skip on your own property, you will save some money.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the most compact skip delivered by skip companies and is designed for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms offer you a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We can normally supply skips to Barnsley the following working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking platform will give you a number of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you would like a skip delivered asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.

What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Barnsley?

Hiring a skip should not be difficult. That is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, type in your address to look at the range of skips we are able to deliver to Barnsley. Pick the size you want to order, and confirm if it is going to be positioned on your own property. Type in your details and make payment using our secure payment platform.

When your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with all of your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container that can be used to dispose of significant volumes of waste materials. Generally, these type of skips are used for industrial uses. However, residential clients can also use them. You should consider the space they will occupy, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be utilised for light-weight waste like paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of soil and stone.

Will you deliver skips across South Yorkshire?

Along with delivering our range of skips to Barnsley, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across South Yorkshire. By utilising a network of local and national waste management businesses, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering in Barnsley, Mexborough or Rotherham, we have got you covered.

What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?

This is one of the most common questions people have about skip hire. The main thing to remember is that you can load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of rubbish that could result from garden work, building work and household clearances.

Some of the most frequent things that we find in our skips include dirt, wood, bush trimmings, kitchen units, bathroom suites, and various other household items.

There are also some items that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This includes any electronic objects (refrigerators, televisions or washing machines for example), old tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and getting rid of them must follow an entirely different procedure to ensure they do not cause harm to the environment.

Can I have a skip that has a drop door?

Getting a skip with a drop door makes loading waste into the skip much easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste materials such as garden soil or rubble, which can then be loaded directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading large bulky items such as furniture much easier also.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, however this will sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a door is required, and we will do our best to provide this.

What are the different skip sizes available?

Skips come in a variety of different sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small household projects.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a great choice for garden clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial waste disposal task to deal with, the builder’s skip could be the most suitable choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name implies, these are the most typical sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, such as clay and stone. However they can equally well be used for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.

We can also supply 10-16 cubic yard bins and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more details about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
