Boroughbridge Skip Hire FAQs
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Boroughbridge?
In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or house, you need to secure permission from your local authority in Boroughbridge, which is called a permit. If necessary, we will gladly organise this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the license, plus you should be aware before booking that obtaining the licence can often take up to two working days.
What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Boroughbridge?
Hiring a skip in Boroughbridge through us is incredibly easy. Pick the skip size you will need and enter a couple of details about when and where you would like your skip to be delivered. You can then pay for your skip using our secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
No, you can not dispose of old or unwanted electronic waste items in a skip. This can include things like laptops, cookers, washing machines, freezers and televisions. These products can’t be thrown in a skip since they can include hazardous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to 14 days. In most cases, that gives you plenty of time to fill your skip. However, if you do need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, if you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
The contents of the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling station. Here the rubbish will be separated by machinery and also by hand into numerous waste streams, including soil, cardboard, hardcore and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we deliver your skip. As long as we can gain access to the place you need it positioned, we are able to take care of it all.
When you are not going to be in, just let us know any relevant delivery instructions when booking the order. For instance, you might want the skip to be positioned at a particular part of the drive. Alternatively, you may need to make sure the skip does not obstruct access to your garage.
No matter what the situation may be, let us know when you place your order, and then we will make sure your instructions will be passed on to the delivery driver.
Is it ok to stack up the waste in my skip?
You should not load the skip beyond the level load mark. If you load it over the tip of this level, it means that the skip is not safe to transport, and you may be asked to take off any excess waste before it can be picked up.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Boroughbridge?
Since we provide a national waste management service, we use a comprehensive network of approved businesses. These can include small family-run skip hire businesses to national waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental standards.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you run a business in Boroughbridge and want to dispose of large quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a perfect choice. Available in 20 – 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers on the market.
As the label indicates, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, in contrast to normal skips, which are picked up by using chains.
Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?
Having a skip which has a drop door will make filling waste into it so much easier. This is especially true with heavy waste materials such as soil and concrete, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading large bulky objects like pieces of furniture much easier too.
The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, but this may sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our very best to deliver this.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Boroughbridge?
The cost of getting a skip in Boroughbridge is determined by the size of skip you want. The least expensive skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you want to have a skip positioned on the highway, as you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
What things can I put in my skip?
You can throw a variety of rubbish into the skip. This can include timber, ceramic tiles, plastics or rubble from a property clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, dirt and stone from garden jobs are allowed as well. Dated cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be discarded in the skip.
However, there are a few items that can’t be put in a skip because of the possible environment or health risk they may cause.
You can not get rid of your fridge, computer monitor or your old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things contain hazardous components in one form or another. They should be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
Should you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to schedule an independent collection for this material. Feel free to contact us for further information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

What size is a mini skip?
When you have a small amount of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip might be the ideal choice. What size is known as a mini skip is different from company to company, according to what sizes they offer.
The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. Cost is based on the specific size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are fantastic for household work like modest DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you need it put on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
