Dewsbury Skip Hire FAQs
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?
If you manage a business in Dewsbury and want to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container could be a perfect option. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that are available.
As the label indicates, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, as opposed to regular skips, that are picked up using chains.
What things can I put in my skip?
It is possible to load your skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from loft clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include timber, top soil, concrete, hedge trimmings, household furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you put in the skip will depend on the skip size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, in the event that you will be using a skip for heavy building wastes like rubble or top soil, the maximum size you would be able to use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in the skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
How do I hire a skip?
Hiring a skip in Dewsbury through us is incredibly straightforward. Choose the skip size you need and then enter a couple of details about when and where you need your skip delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and schedule to have your skip delivered on the date selected.
How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?
The name builders skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. They are the biggest skips that can be used to dispose of substantial building and construction waste materials such as stone, concrete, gravel or soil.
A builders skip is perfect for a number of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing the attic, these substantial skips will often be the most affordable choice available.
How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are fantastic for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and old baby toys to paving slabs and bricks. With a capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make numerous trips to the local recycling centre.
What will happen to my waste when the skip is collected?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste will get segregated into various waste streams, including wood, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be there when anybody delivers something to your house. That enables you to ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be dropped precisely where you need it.
The same thing applies for those who have a company. If 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 don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
When will my skip be delivered?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a date that suits you. We will usually give a following day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, since to be on public property (like a road), you will have to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.
Due to many factors that could impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it arriving in a AM or PM slot.
Can you deliver skips across West Yorkshire?
Indeed, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skips to areas across West Yorkshire, such as Dewsbury, Morley, Bradford and Wetherby. So wherever you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Dewsbury?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit when your skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or inside your company premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, so we can make the required arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on private property, you will save a few pounds.
What skip sizes can you provide?
Skips come in a number of different sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small household tasks.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a fantastic choice for shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
When you have a more significant waste disposal task to handle, the builder’s skip could be the smartest choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label suggests, they are the most popular sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, such as soil and rubble. But they can equally well be hired for household rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We can also provide 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
What is the cost of skip hire in Dewsbury?
The cost of getting a skip in Dewsbury is determined by the size of skip you require. The lowest priced skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you want a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also be more if you want to have your skip positioned on the road, because you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Can I get rid of electrical items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods must be kept separate from general rubbish to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electronic products such as tumble dryers, televisions, kettles, computers and even hair straighteners.
Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?
It is vital to not overfill a skip. You can not pass the level load mark indicated along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it is very hazardous to transport. This means that when you overload the skip, you might be required to remove the excess waste. Regardless of how secure you believe the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. That is dangerous and is prohibited.
Will the skip have a drop door?
The majority of containers can be delivered with a drop door, which makes them easy to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the bin, particularly with weighty materials, like garden soil and gravel, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky items, such as furniture.
Will a Dewsbury skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip firm will most likely deliver your skip in Dewsbury. We make use of a network of both regional and national businesses to allow us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are comprehensively assessed to be sure they meet the high principles we demand in terms of customer service, cost and environmental performance.
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can typically hire the skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, you have the choice of providing a preferred collection date when making your order.
Alternatively, just let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the next working day.
It might take a bit longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.
