Castleford Skip Hire FAQs
What can I put in the skip?
Prior to hiring your skip, it is essential to check that the type of waste you want to dispose of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types it is possible to throw in a skip include home goods like furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use your skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, including bricks, dirt, rubble, metals and concrete.
Some examples of restricted items include things like electronic products, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently must be disposed of separately from your general waste.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered by skip firms and is good for smaller DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some companies offer a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items have to be kept separate from general waste materials to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric goods such as washing machines, monitors, toasters, tablets and even hairdryers.
Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?
I’m afraid not. You are only allowed to pack the skip up to the level load mark. Loading waste up over this line will make it unsafe to transport, and you can be told to remove the excess waste before your skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and it can also make it overweight.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Castleford?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Castleford, enter your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you the skip sizes we offer in your town and how much each size will cost to order. If the skip will be on the highway or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.
Will a Castleford skip hire company deliver my skip?
To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work with a variety of local and national companies. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to provide customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial industrial scale skips that are used predominantly in the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for companies that produce large volumes of waste.
Will you deliver to other areas in West Yorkshire?
Sure, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver skips to areas throughout West Yorkshire, such as Castleford, Batley, Otley and Garforth. So wherever you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These are the biggest skips that can be hired to dispose of substantial construction waste such as stone, bricks, gravel or garden soil.
A builders skip is perfect for a wide range of jobs. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing out your loft, these large containers will often be the most cost-effective solution available.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Castleford?
This will depend on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a permit if it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit when your skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or within your business premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position your skip on your own land, you will save some pounds.
How do you hire a skip?
Hiring a skip in Castleford through us is incredibly easy. Select the skip size you will need and then enter a handful of details about where and when you need your skip to be delivered. You can then pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then schedule to get your skip delivered.
Is it possible to get a skip which has a drop down door?
When you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is ideal for getting rid of heavy building and demolition materials, as it can be walked in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop door, though these are generally more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are generally low enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to ensure a skip which has a drop door is supplied.
How long will it take to get a skip in Castleford?
We can typically supply skips to Castleford the next working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking program offers you various delivery dates to pick from. So whether you want the skip delivered ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
Do I have to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?
It usually is a good idea to be there when anyone delivers anything to your home. That allows you to ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be dropped precisely where you need it.
The same thing goes if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
What skip sizes do you deliver?
We can offer a wide range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip excellent for small DIY tasks and household clearances. A common option for larger sized tasks, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Castleford businesses with a significant amount of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Where does the waste be taken to when the skip is picked up?
When you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling centre in or local to Castleford where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
Normally, you can have your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you do not need to hurry through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
