Clayton-le-Moors Skip Hire FAQs
How big is a builder’s skip?
The phrase builders skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The name comes from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are suited to a wide variety of domestic and commercial projects. These are the biggest sizes that you can use for weighty builders waste including garden soil, rubble and bricks.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size provided by skip firms and is designed for smaller DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms will provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Clayton-le-Moors?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a skip permit if it is placed on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit when your skip will be on your private property, such as a drive or inside your company premises.
If you need to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on your own land, it will save you a few pounds.
Is it okay to fill up the skip above the top?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will be asked to empty any contents higher than the level load mark. This also means that you cannot make use of sheets of wood, doors or another object, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to make sure that containers are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure that you order the appropriate sized skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you’re not sure which size is best. We would be pleased to help.
Am I able to get a skip that has a drop down door?
In general, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop door, depending on skip size, availability and location. If you want a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini and midi skips, because they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip is delivered?
No, you do not have to be at home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we can gain access to where you need it delivered, we are able to take care of everything.
In the event you will not be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when you place your order. For instance, you may want the skip to be positioned on a particular part of your property. Or you might want to make sure the skip doesn’t obstruct use of your garage.
No matter what the case might be, tell us when ordering, and we will ensure the directions will be passed to the delivery driver.

It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have the skip placed on the street or any other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the added cost of the skip permit.
Where will the waste be taken to once the skip is collected?
When you have finished with your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste recycling centre in or local to Clayton-le-Moors where we sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can normally hire your skip for up to 14 days from the day that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection is as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of offering a preferred collection date when making your order.
Alternatively, just tell us when you have finished loading up the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in the majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It may take a little while longer to collect your skip over busy times, however we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.
What can I put in the skip?
Your skip can be used to get rid of many different types of waste. We are experienced in picking up and handling a multitude of materials generated from building jobs, garden projects and household clearances. A few examples of allowed waste products include things like:
- Pieces of furniture
- Tree cuttings
- Garden soil
- Bathroom suites
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Many waste materials will be accepted, and therefore whether you need to dispose of metals, plastic materials, timber or textiles, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The quantity and waste types you discard in your skip may vary based on which size skip you have ordered. Skips have a weight limit for safety. So if you would like get rid of garden soil and rubble, for example, the biggest size container you would be allowed to use will be the 8 yard skip.
What type of materials am I not allowed to put in a skip?
There are several materials you will not be able to dump in your skip. The main reason for this is that some goods incorporate hazardous materials that may harm the environment. They can even be damaging to human health, therefore they must be discarded separately under UK legislation.
Examples of the goods that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas canisters
- PC monitors
How many different skip sizes are available?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Clayton-le-Moors, you will have numerous sizes to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for small domestic clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also makes them suitable for house clearances involving bulky objects like pieces of furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for customers with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only suitable for light waste materials, so they can not be hired to dispose of soil or stone.
