Bradford Skip Hire FAQs

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is regarded as the popular skip that is ordered across the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builder’s skip is perfect for most building projects, which is where the name originates from.

The 8 yd builder’s skip is the biggest size that can be used for heavy waste matter including soil, concrete, rock and rubble.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Bradford?

The price of getting a skip in Bradford depends on the size of skip you want. The least expensive skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you need a larger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also be more if you need to have the skip placed on the highway, since you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Will a Bradford skip hire company deliver my skip?

To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work with a wide range of local and national businesses. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to offer customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.

Can you deliver to other areas in West Yorkshire?

We provide a national skip hire service using a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you would like skip hire in Bradford, Horbury, Cleckheaton, Mirfield or any other site in West Yorkshire, we can help.

What happens to my rubbish when the skip is collected?

When you have finished filling your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer station either in or local to Bradford where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge commercial size skips that are used primarily within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for businesses that generate significant quantities of waste.

Is it possible to get a skip with a drop down door?

Virtually all containers can be supplied with a drop door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.

A skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the skip, particularly with weighty materials, like garden soil and rubble, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, such as household furniture.

What skip sizes do you supply?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Bradford, you will have various options to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard container, sometimes called the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for modest household clearances and DIY tasks.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their large capacity also makes them suitable for house clearances involving large items like pieces of furniture and beds.

We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for anyone with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These sizes are only suited to lightweight materials, so they can not be used to dispose of soil or concrete.

To get more information regarding the different skip sizes offered, including measurements, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are fantastic for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furnishings and broken toys to paving blocks and soil. With a capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you needing to make multiple trips to the local recycling centre.

What can I put in my skip?

You may use a skip to throw out lots of different waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and handling a multitude of materials from construction work, garden projects and home clean-ups. A few examples of allowed waste products include:

  • Home furnishings
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Soil
  • Concrete
  • Bathroom suites
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Most waste types are usually permitted, therefore whether you want to get rid of metals, plastic materials, timber or fabric, we can normally take your rubbish away.

The quantity and materials you put in your skip may vary depending on the size skip you chosen. All skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you want to discard soil and gravel, as an example, the biggest size you will be permitted to hire will be the 8 yard skip.

Are there any items that I can’t throw in the skip?

There are several materials which you will not be able to put in your skip. The reason for this is that some items incorporate hazardous components that may damage the environment. They could also be hazardous to human health, therefore they must be disposed of separately under UK legislation.

Examples of the items which are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC screens
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

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

In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you want your skip to be located on land outside of your company or home, you will need to receive authorisation from the local authority in Bradford, which is known as a permit. If required, we would be happy to organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less issue to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for your license, plus you should be aware before placing your order that getting the permit will often take up to two working days.

Is it ok to load the skip higher than the level load line?

No. You are only allowed to fill up the skip up to the level load line. Piling rubbish up over this line would make it unsafe to transport, and you could be told to get rid of the excess waste before your skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and it can also make it overweight.

Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?

Electric powered objects such as televisions, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste type and so cannot be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered items must be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you complete your order before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will normally have your skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive, we strive to offer you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery position, as failed delivery attempts will lead to a fee for a wasted journey.

Should I be in when the skip is delivered?

You don’t have to be home when the skip is delivered, however it can help. Being in whenever the skip is delivered means you can ensure the lorry driver can be given full access and that your skip can be dropped exactly where you need it. Likewise, if your skip is delivered to a company premises, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

However, if you can’t be around during delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you place your order, and then we will organise things from there.

How do I hire a skip in Bradford?

This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you wish to hire. Tell us whether the skip will be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or council property (like the road). After that, choose the day you would like the skip to get delivered. Check your order and make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Bradford on the date you have chosen.

How long can I hire the skip for?

Our normal hire time frame is 14 days from the date of delivery. Having said that, when you book the skip, you can tell us a pick up date that is perfect for you. Of course, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if the skip is loaded sooner than expected, tell us, and we will get it picked up at the earliest opportunity.

We will usually make collections within 48 hours. However, it is important to keep in mind that this may not always be possible at busier periods. Once collected, your waste will be transported to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed and sorted.

Other areas covered include Horbury, Cleckheaton, Mirfield, Liversedge, Brighouse, Dewsbury, Wakefield and Knottingley.
