Brighouse Skip Hire FAQs
What is the process of ordering a skip in Brighouse?
This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you wish to hire. Let us know if the skip is going to be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on public property (such as the street). Then, pick the day you want your skip to get delivered. Check your order details and make payment with our secure online payment system. That’s it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Brighouse on the date you have selected.
Where does my rubbish be taken to when the skip is collected?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into various waste streams, such as stone, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Can I fill my skip above the level load mark?
You must not fill a skip past the level load line. When you fill it above the tip of this level, it means that your skip is not secure to move, and you could be asked to take off any excess waste before it can be picked up.
Do you deliver skips across West Yorkshire?
In addition to delivering our range of skips to Brighouse, we also deliver to other towns and villages within West Yorkshire. With the help of a network of local and national waste management and recycling businesses, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to Brighouse, Otley or Hemsworth, we have got it covered.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Brighouse?
We utilise a network of both local and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in Brighouse and the rest of the UK. Our partner skip companies are verified and evaluated to make certain they match our expectations for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.
How many different skip sizes are available?
Skips are available in a selection of different sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small residential jobs.
Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent option for garage clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
If you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to undertake, a builder’s skip may be the best option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title implies, these represent the most popular sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, like clay and rubble. However they can equally well be used for domestic waste such as broken furniture or kitchen units.
We also offer 10-16 yard containers and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builders skip means the size of skip most frequently supplied for building projects. There are typically two different skip sizes that may be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that can be used to get rid of large amounts of building and demolition materials, including soil, concrete and bricks.
Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for various other household and industrial waste disposal tasks.
Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Brighouse?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only require a permit when it is placed on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit when your skip is on private property, like a driveway or on your company premises.
If you need to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position your skip on your own property, you will save some money.
Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old or unwanted electrical waste products in your skip. This includes items like printers, microwaves, dishwashers, freezers and televisions. Electric objects can’t be discarded in your skip because they can have dangerous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
Having a skip which has a drop down door helps make loading rubbish into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste materials such as soil or concrete, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of big bulky objects such as household furniture a lot easier as well.
Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, however this may sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our very best to provide this.
How large is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact skip provided by skip companies and is ideal for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some firms provide a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Brighouse?
To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Brighouse, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you the sizes we offer in your location and how much each one will cost you to order. If your skip is going on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also have to be factored in.
Am I able to put all kinds of waste in the skip?
You are allowed to throw a variety of waste into your skip. This includes wood, tile, metal or bricks from a property clearance. Tree and bush clippings, top soil and stone from garden tasks are allowed too. Cupboards from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be discarded in your skip.
However, there are some materials that you are not allowed to put in a skip a result of the potential environment or health risks they may trigger.
You cannot get rid of your fridge freezer, laptop or your old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. All of these items incorporate hazardous elements in one form or another. They need to be disposed of separately from general waste.
If you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to arrange an independent collection for this material. Please contact us for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
Do I need to be in when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when the skip is delivered, however it can help. Being there whenever the skip is due to be delivered means you can make sure the lorry is given complete access and that your skip is dropped precisely where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is being hired to your business property, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Even so, if you can’t be around for the delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place your order, and then we will organise everything from there.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to 14 days. In most cases, this provides you with plenty of time to load the skip. However, if you do need a little more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, in the event you finish with the skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just contact us when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
How long will it take to get a skip in Brighouse?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your booking prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver, we try to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery location, as failed deliveries will result in a charge for the wasted journey.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
If you run a company in Brighouse and need to dispose of large quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container could be a perfect choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips that you can hire.
As the label indicates, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike normal skips, which are picked up using chains.
