Easingwold Skip Hire FAQs

What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?

Your skip can be used to dispose of many different types of waste. We are used to collecting and processing a wide variety of materials generated from construction work, garden projects and property clearances. A few examples of permitted waste products include things like:

  • Pieces of furniture
  • Garden cuttings
  • Top soil
  • Rubble
  • Bathroom suites
  • Cabinets and units

Many waste types will be permitted, and so whether you wish to throw out furniture, plastics, wood or textiles, we can normally take your waste away.

The quantity and materials you throw into your skip can vary according to the size skip you ordered. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you would like dispose of garden soil and bricks, as an example, the biggest size you will be permitted to use would be the 8 cubic yard skip.

Are there items which I can’t throw in the skip?

There are some materials that you will not be permitted to put in your skip. The reason for this is that these goods incorporate hazardous materials that may cause harm to the environment. They may also be hazardous to human health, so they must be discarded separately under UK law.

A few examples of the items which are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Will the skip be supplied with a drop door?

The vast majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, which makes them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the container, particularly with weighty materials, like soil and gravel, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, such as household furniture.

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 day that suits you. We will typically provide a following day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (such as a road), you will need to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.

Due to numerous factors that can impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it to be delivered within a AM or PM slot.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Easingwold?

The price of hiring a skip in Easingwold depends on the size of skip you require. The cheapest option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also increase if you want to have the skip positioned on the road, since you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

How big is a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builders skip means the size of skip most commonly hired for building and demolition projects. There are generally two sizes which can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to get rid of substantial volumes of building and demolition waste materials, including garden soil, rubble and rock.

Although they are labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for various other residential and industrial waste disposal tasks.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

The roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a huge skip that is used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These containers are primarily for industrial use but can be hired by domestic customers too. Having said that, you will want plenty of room as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger in comparison to the typical skip you will see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, roll-on roll-off containers can only be hired for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not suited to disposing of soil and bricks.

What will happen to the rubbish in the skip?

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into various waste types, such as stone, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!

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

It is usually a good idea to be available when anybody delivers anything to your home. You can then ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it.

The same thing applies for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.

Is it okay to load my skip higher than the level load line?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it hazardous to move, and you will then have to empty any contents over the level load line. This also means that you can not make use of sheets of wood, doors or any other item, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal obligation to make sure that bins aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure you order the appropriate sized skip for your needs and get in contact if you are uncertain which size you need. We will be pleased to help.

What skip sizes can you deliver?

We can supply a wide range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip best for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A common option for larger sized tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.

For Easingwold firms which have a significant quantity of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

If I want a skip on the road in Easingwold, will I need to have a permit?

If possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface. When you are doing a residential project, then the drive is going to be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, if neither is available, the road or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public property, you have got to obtain a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be dropped on a road, grass verge as well as other public property in Easingwold. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be issued on your behalf. An additional fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?

If you have a small quantity of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip might be the best choice. What size is known as a mini skip is different from company to company, based on what sizes they supply.

2 cubic yards is probably the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. Price depends on the actual size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are best for domestic tasks like small DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

Who will deliver my skip?

A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Easingwold. We utilize a network of both regional and nationwide providers to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These companies are comprehensively assessed to make certain they match the high standards we demand in terms of customer service, cost and environmental performance.

Am I allowed to throw electronic products in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items must be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This can include all electric products like cookers, televisions, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.

How long can I hire the skip for?

Our standard hire period will be 2 weeks from the date of delivery. However, at the time you book the skip, you can let us know a collection date that is perfect for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if your skip is loaded sooner than expected, let us know, and we will get it removed as quickly as possible.

We will usually complete collections within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this may not always be possible during busier periods. Once collected, the waste will be transported to your local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed and sorted.

Other areas covered include Saltburn-by-the-Sea, Harrogate, Helmsley, Middlesbrough, Filey, Loftus, Masham and Boroughbridge.
