Below are a few of the frequently asked questions we receive regarding our skip hire and recycling service.

Batley Skip Hire FAQs

How long can I keep the skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, that gives you plenty of time to load your skip. However, if you do need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, if you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Batley?

In most cases, it will be possible to have the skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But in order to do this, you need to have approval from the local authority in Batley, which is known as a skip permit. We will arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will impose a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take 24-2 days for them to approve this.

Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods must be kept separate from general waste to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered goods including washing machines, televisions, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.

What things can I put in the skip?

A skip can be hired to discard many different types of waste. We are used to picking up and handling a multitude of items generated from construction work, garden projects and household clearances. A few examples of allowed waste types include:

  • Home furnishings
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Garden soil
  • Hardcore
  • Bathroom suites
  • Cabinets and units

Most waste materials are usually permitted, therefore whether you wish to get rid of furniture, plastics, wood or old toys, we can usually take your waste away.

The quantity and items you throw in your skip may vary depending on the size skip you have ordered. All skips have a weight limit for safety. So to be able to get rid of soil and gravel, as an example, the largest size container you will be permitted to use would be the 8 cubic yard skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?

There are a few items that you are not allowed to dispose of in the skip. The main reason for this is that these goods incorporate hazardous elements which can harm the environment. They can even be dangerous to human health, therefore they need to be discarded separately within UK legislation.

Examples of the products that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How large is the mini skip?

The mini skip will be the most compact size available from skip firms and is designed for small DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip companies provide a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

What skip sizes do you provide?

Skips come in a variety of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small household jobs.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a good choice for garden clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to sort out, the builder’s skip might be the most suitable choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name suggests, these are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, including clay and hardcore. However they can equally well be hired for domestic rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also deliver 10-16 cubic yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For additional details about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

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

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

Can you deliver skips across West Yorkshire?

Absolutely. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to supply skips to both domestic and industrial customers throughout West Yorkshire and anywhere else within the UK.

What is the process of ordering a skip in Batley?

This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you wish to hire. Let us know whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (like the street). Then, pick the date you need your skip to be delivered. Check your order details and make payment with our secure online payment system. Job done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Batley on the date you have chosen.

Am I allowed to fill my skip higher than the level load line?

It is important to never overfill a skip. You must not pass the level load line that is shown on the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it can be very dangerous to transport. Which means that if you overfill your skip, you might be required to remove the excess waste. No matter how secure you feel the skip to be, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be hazardous and is not allowed.

When will my skip be delivered?

When you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we can even give you a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed when going through the order process.

Where do you take the waste from my skip?

The rubbish in the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer facility. Here the waste will be separated by machinery and also by hand into numerous waste streams, like soil, cardboard, rubble and timber. Sorting the waste in this way helps to increase the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.

Will the skip have a drop door?

Virtually all skips can be provided with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the bin, especially with heavy materials, like garden soil and bricks, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky objects, such as furniture.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Batley?

Our aim is to give you the most affordable skip hire service in Batley. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have a skip positioned on the road or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the extra price of a skip permit.

What is classed as a builders skip?

The term builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The name comes from the fact that these are the most typical sizes hired by builders and tradespeople.

These big skips are great for numerous residential and commercial jobs. They are the biggest sizes which you can use for weighty builders waste such as garden soil, rubble and gravel.

Will a skip hire company from Batley deliver my skip?

As we offer a national skip hire service, we utilise a comprehensive network of approved companies. These can range from small family-run skip hire firms to national waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental expectations.

Do I have to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?

You don’t really need to be at home when your skip is being delivered, but it can help. Being there when your skip is being delivered means you can ensure the lorry is given complete access and that your skip is located precisely where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is being delivered to your business premises, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

However, when you can’t be around for delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you book your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.

Other areas covered include Rothwell, Silsden, Liversedge, Hemsworth, Dewsbury, Yeadon, Normanton and Brighouse.
