Driffield Skip Hire FAQs
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Driffield?
The cost of getting a skip in Driffield will depend on the size of skip you require. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you want a larger sized skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also increase if you need to have your skip placed on the road, as you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
Electric powered products like television sets, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore can not be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical products have to be separated from other rubbish. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can generally hire a skip for up to 2 weeks from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, you have the option of giving a preferred collection day when making your order.
Otherwise, just tell us when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the following working day.
It may take a little bit longer to pick up your skip over busy times, however we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.
Will you deliver skips across East Riding of Yorkshire?
Yes, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply skips to areas throughout East Riding of Yorkshire, such as Driffield, Beverley, Kingston upon Hull and Howden. So wherever you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip is delivered when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the following day.
Although we can’t guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our best to reach you within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You should ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will often incur a fee for the wasted journey.
How large is the mini skip?
If you are looking for a low cost skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to handle numerous tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be placed on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.
Although most frequently hired by residential customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into various waste types, which includes timber, soil and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Can I get a skip which has a drop door?
When you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is great for getting rid of hefty building and demolition waste materials, as it can be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop down door, though these are generally less common. Simply because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our best to make sure a container that has a drop door is supplied.
What are the different skip sizes available?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Driffield, you have multiple sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard container, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is excellent for modest house clearances and DIY jobs.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also makes them suitable for house clearances involving bulky items such as furniture and beds.
We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight waste materials, so they can’t be used to get rid of garden soil or concrete.
For more information about the different sizes available, such as proportions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

What can I put in my skip?

- Pieces of furniture
- Hedge trimmings
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Many different waste materials are accepted, and therefore whether you wish to get rid of furniture, plastic materials, timber or textiles, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The quantity and items you discard in the skip can vary depending on the size skip you chosen. All skips do have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you wish to dispose of top soil and rubble, as an example, the biggest size you will be allowed to hire is the 8 yard skip.
Are there items which I can’t discard in the skip?
There are several waste materials you are not allowed to discard in your skip. The reason behind this is that these items incorporate hazardous elements which may damage the environment. They can also be dangerous to human health, and so they need to be discarded separately within UK law.
A few examples of the goods that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- PC monitors
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Driffield?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you need your skip to be situated on land outside of your company or residence, you will need to receive authorisation from the local authority in Driffield, which is known as a permit. If necessary, we would gladly arrange this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for your road permit, plus you should know before booking that securing the licence can sometimes take up to two working days.
Will a skip hire company from Driffield deliver my skip?
As we offer a nationwide skip hire service, we use a diverse network of approved companies. These can range from small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to ensure they meet our high customer service and environmental requirements.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
No, you do not need to be at home when we are delivering your skip. So long as we can access where you want it located, we can manage it all.
In case you are not going to be at home, simply let us have any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For instance, you might need the skip to be located at a particular side of the property. Alternatively, you may want to be sure that the skip doesn’t prevent entry to your garage.
No matter what the case may be, simply tell us when ordering, and then we will make sure the directions will be passed to the lorry driver.
Can I fill up my skip above the top?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it dangerous to transport, and you will then be asked to empty any contents higher than the level load line. This also means that you are not allowed to make use of sheets of timber, doors or another item, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to ensure that bins aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure to hire the appropriate sized skip for your requirements and get in touch if you are uncertain which size you require. We would be pleased to help.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container used to dispose of huge volumes of waste materials. Generally, these type of containers are hired for commercial purposes. However, domestic customers may also use them. You have to look at the area they occupy, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they should only be used for light-weight materials like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and stone.
What is classed as a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is the most frequent skip that is used throughout the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is perfect for most building and construction jobs, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the biggest size which you can use for hefty waste matter including dirt, concrete, stone and gravel.
