Doncaster Skip Hire FAQs

Do I need to be there when the skip will be delivered?

You don’t have to be at home when the skip is being delivered, however it will help. Being home whenever the skip is due to be delivered means you can make sure the delivery driver is given full access and that your skip is located exactly where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is being delivered to company premises, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.

Having said that, in the event you can’t be available for the delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask that you tell us when you book your order, and then we will organise everything from there.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Doncaster?

Normally, it is possible to have a skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to get this done, you will need to get approval from the local authority in Doncaster, which is called a skip permit. We will organise this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The council do charge a fee for this permit, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact skip provided by skip firms and is perfect for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

Is it ok to stack up waste in my skip?

It is very important never to overload your skip, as you risk being asked to take out excessive waste before it can be collected. Regardless of the size you hire, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, because transporting an overloaded skip can be unsafe, as objects could drop and cause personal injury or damage to other people.

To prevent this issue, please be sure to order a size suitable for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have more waste to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into the different waste streams, like timber, metals, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Will you deliver skips across South Yorkshire?

Of course, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver skips to locations across South Yorkshire, such as Doncaster, Goldthorpe, Conisbrough and Penistone. So no matter where you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

Skips are available in a wide range of sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small residential tasks.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent option for loft clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant waste disposal task to undertake, a builder’s skip could be the best choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title implies, they are the most common sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, such as clay and stone. However they can just as well be hired for household waste such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also deliver 10-16 yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Do all skips have a drop door?

In general, nearly all skips can be provided with a hinged door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you require a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip that has a drop door is primarily helpful if choosing a large builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow your waste into the skip. This is not so important for midi and mini skips, because they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What sort of waste am I able to get rid of in a skip?

You can use your skip to get rid of many different waste types. We are experienced in picking up and handling a multitude of materials produced from construction work, garden landscaping and home clean-ups. A few examples of permitted waste products include things like:

  • Home furnishings
  • Tree trimmings
  • Top soil
  • Concrete
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Cabinets and units

Many waste types are generally permitted, and so whether you would like to dispose of metals, plastic materials, wood or unwanted toys, we can normally take your waste away.

The volume and materials you put into the skip will vary depending on which size skip you have chosen. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you need to dispose of top soil and rubble, as an example, the largest size you will be permitted to use would be the 8 yard skip.

What kind of items am I not allowed to put in the skip?

There are a few waste items you will not be able to put in the skip. The main reason for this is that some goods incorporate hazardous materials that may cause damage to the environment. They may also be harmful to human health, and so they need to be discarded separately within UK regulations.

A few examples of the items which are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Battery packs
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

When will the skip be delivered to me?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a date that suits you. We will normally offer you a following day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, since to go on public property (like a street), you will have to gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it arriving in a morning or afternoon slot.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The label originates from the fact that these are the most popular sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.

These big skips are suitable for an array of household and business projects. They are the largest sizes which can be used for heavy builders waste such as garden soil, rubble and concrete.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to a fortnight. In most cases, this gives you plenty of time to load the skip. However, if you need a little more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Of course, in the event you finish with your skip earlier, 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 pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you have a company in Doncaster and need to get rid of large amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container may be a great option. Available in 20 to 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers on the market.

As the label indicates, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to regular skips, that are lifted using chains.

How much will skip hire in Doncaster cost?

Our goal is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Doncaster. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have your skip situated on the street or other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the added cost of the skip permit.

Am I able to throw away electrical items in my skip?

Electric powered objects such as television sets, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so cannot be placed 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 materials. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

Other areas covered include Goldthorpe, Conisbrough, Penistone, Barnsley, Wath upon Dearne, Thorne, Worsbrough and Ecclesfield.
