How much waste will a mini skip hold?

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be positioned on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.

Although most commonly chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.

Will a Cottingham skip hire company deliver my skip?

A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Cottingham. We work with a network of both regional and national companies to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are assessed to make certain they satisfy the high expectations we demand with regards to service, price and environmental performance.

What are the different skip sizes to pick from?

We provide a full-range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for modest DIY tasks and household clearances. A common choice for larger sized tasks, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.

For Cottingham firms which have a large volume of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. You can then be sure the lorry has total access and that the skip will be located exactly where you need it. This also applies when you have a skip delivered to company property, particularly when gates limit access.

However, if this is not possible, you don’t need to stress. Simply let us know when making your order, and then we will take care of the rest.

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

In most situations, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or house, you will need to get permission from the local authority in Cottingham, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we will be happy to organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less point to think about. The council will charge a fee for your skip license, and you should know before booking that obtaining the licence will often take up to 2 working days.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

You can normally keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the delivery date. You can give a preferred collection date when you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know when you have loaded the skip, and then we will prepare your collection. In most cases, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a little longer during hectic periods.

Can I load the skip above the level load line?

No. You are only allowed to fill the skip up to the level load line. Loading waste up over this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you could be asked to take off the extra waste before the skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or any other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.

Can I get a skip which has a drop door?

If you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is designed for disposing of heavy building and construction materials, as it can be pushed in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop down door, though these are typically more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to make sure a container which has a drop door is provided.

How long does it take to get a skip in Cottingham?

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

If you confirm your booking before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery position, as failed deliveries can lead to a charge for a wasted trip.

Where will my rubbish be taken to once the skip is collected?

After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste recycling centre in or local to Cottingham where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

How much will skip hire in Cottingham cost?

To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Cottingham, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display the sizes we offer in your location and how much each option will cost you to order. If your skip will be on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.

Can I dispose of electronic items in my skip?

Electronic objects such as tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so can not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered goods have to be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of huge volumes of waste. Mostly, these type of containers are used for industrial applications. Having said that, residential clients can also hire them. It is essential to think about the space they will take up, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they should only be hired for light-weight waste like plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and stone.

What things can I put in the skip?

This is among the most frequent questions people have about hiring a skip. The most important thing to remember is that you can fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of waste which will come from garden projects, construction work and home clearances.

Among the most frequent items that we collect in skips include soil, wood, hedge trimmings, kitchen units, toilets, and various other household objects.

There are also some materials that you are not allowed to put in your skip. For example, any electronic products (fridge freezers, televisions and computers for example), old car tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all considered hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them needs to abide by an entirely different process to make sure they don’t result in damage to the environment.

Other areas covered include Hessle, Pocklington, Beverley, Market Weighton, Driffield, Howden, Bridlington and Goole.
