Bentley Skip Hire FAQs
What things can I put in the skip?
A skip can be used to discard lots of different types of waste materials. We are used to collecting and processing a wide variety of items from building jobs, garden landscaping and home tidy-ups. Examples of permitted waste types include:
- Household furniture
- Hedge trimmings
- Garden soil
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Cabinets and units
The majority of materials are generally allowed, therefore whether you need to discard metals, plastics, wood or unwanted toys, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The volume and things you put in the skip may vary based on which size skip you have hired. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you wish to discard garden soil and rubble, as an example, the biggest size container you will be permitted to hire will be the 8 yard skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?
There are several items you will not be permitted to discard in the skip. The main reason for this is that some goods include hazardous materials that may damage the environment. They can even be hazardous to human health, therefore they must be disposed of separately under UK law.
Some examples of the products that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas cylinders
- Computer monitors
- Battery packs
- Chemical substances
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you have a business in Bentley and wish to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a great option. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that are available.
As the label indicates, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike standard skips, that are lifted by using chains.
Will the skip come with a drop door?
Getting a skip which has a drop down door will make filling rubbish into it a lot easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste like garden soil and hardcore, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make disposing of large bulky objects like furniture easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, however it will sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a door is needed, and we will do our best to supply this.
Will a skip hire company from Bentley deliver my skip?
Since we offer a nationwide skip hire service, we use a comprehensive network of approved companies. These vary from small local skip hire firms to nationwide waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental expectations.
What is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to tackle numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be placed on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most commonly hired by household customers, the mini skip can also tackle smaller commercial jobs.
How do I hire a skip in Bentley?
This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you wish to hire. Let us know whether the skip will be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (such as the road). Next, pick the date you need your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment using our secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your skip to Bentley on the day you have selected.
Is it okay to fill my skip above the top?
It is important never to overload your skip. You can not pass the level load mark shown along the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it can be very dangerous to move. This means that when you overfill your skip, you might be asked to remove the excess waste. Regardless of how safe you feel the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be unsafe and is therefore not allowed.
If I need a skip on a road in Bentley, will I need to get a permit?
In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you would like your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or home, you have got to get permission from your local council in Bentley, which is called a skip permit. If required, we will be happy to organise this for you, therefore it’s one less thing to think about. The council does charge a fee for the skip license, and you should know before booking that getting the licence will often take up to 2 working days.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is probably the most popular skip that is hired across the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builder’s skip is perfect for most building tasks, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip will be the biggest size which can be used for heavy materials including dirt, concrete, rock and gravel.
Can you deliver skips across South Yorkshire?
Yes, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skip sizes to locations throughout South Yorkshire, including Bentley, Conisbrough, Goldthorpe and Maltby. So regardless of where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not need to be at home when we are delivering your skip. As long as we are able to access where you want it located, we are able to manage everything.
In the event you are not going to be in, simply let us have any relevant delivery instructions when you place the order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be positioned at a particular part of your driveway. Alternatively, you may want to be sure that the skip does not obstruct use of your garage.
No matter what the situation may be, simply let us know when ordering, and we will make sure your directions are passed to the lorry driver.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We can normally deliver skips to Bentley the next working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This is applicable to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking platform will give you a range of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like the skip to arrive asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Bentley?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Bentley, insert your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you which sizes we offer in your location and how much each size costs to hire. If the skip is going on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.
What will happen to the rubbish?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get sorted into a range of waste streams, which includes wood, soil and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?
Electrical products including TVs, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and so cannot be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered objects have to be separated from other materials. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
The standard hire period will be two weeks from your delivery date. However, at the time you order the skip, you can select a pick up date that will work for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if your skip is fully loaded sooner than expected, tell us, and we will get it collected as quickly as possible.
We can normally be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to understand that this may not be possible at busy times. Once collected, the skip will be taken to your local waste transfer centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
