Ecclesfield Skip Hire FAQs

What happens to the rubbish in my skip?

The contents of the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer station. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machines and by hand into numerous waste materials, like metal, paper, concrete and timber. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.

How long can I hire a skip for?

You can typically keep your skip for as long as two weeks from your date of delivery. You can give a preferred collection date when you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know after you have loaded the skip, and we will organise your collection. Generally, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer over hectic periods.

Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?

I’m afraid this is not allowed, because electrical items including old televisions, fridge freezers, computers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.

What is classed as a builders skip?

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most commonly used for construction work. There are generally two different skip sizes which can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers which you can use to dispose of significant amounts of construction and demolition materials, such as garden soil, concrete and bricks.

Although labelled a builders skip, they can be used for a number of other household and business waste disposal tasks.

How can I order a skip?

Ordering a skip in Ecclesfield with us is very simple. Select the skip size you want and then enter a couple of details about where and when you want your skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

What skip sizes do you offer?

Skips are offered in a wide range of sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is great for small domestic projects.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold around 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great choice for shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to tackle, a builder’s skip might be the best option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title implies, these represent the most frequent sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, like soil and hardcore. However they can just as well be used for household rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also offer 10-16 cubic yard bins and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Can I fill up the skip above the top?

It is essential not to overload the skip. You should not pass the level load mark shown along the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it is very hazardous to move. This means that if you overload your skip, you could be required to remove the excess waste. No matter how safe you believe the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This can be hazardous and is therefore not allowed.

What waste can I put in the skip?

You can use a skip to discard many different waste types. We are used to picking up and handling numerous items from building jobs, garden landscaping and home clean-ups. Examples of allowed waste products include:

  • Home furnishings
  • Tree trimmings
  • Garden soil
  • Bricks
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Most waste types are generally allowed, so whether you would like to discard furniture, plastic materials, wood or old toys, we can normally take your waste away.

The quantity and things you put into your skip will vary based on the size skip you ordered. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So to be able to dispose of soil and gravel, for example, the largest size you will be permitted to use will be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Are there items that I can’t discard in the skip?

There are several materials that you are not able to dump in your skip. The reason for this is that these items incorporate hazardous components which may cause damage to the environment. They can even be dangerous to human health, so they have to be disposed of separately within UK law.

Some examples of the products which are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer screens
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

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

We will make sure your skip is provided on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.

Although we can’t promise an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You will need to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will in most cases incur a fee for the wasted journey.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

Virtually all containers can be provided with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.

A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the container, especially with heavy materials, like dirt and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, like furniture.

How large is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge industrial scale skips used predominantly within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for organisations that generate large quantities of waste materials.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Ecclesfield?

Our goal is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Ecclesfield. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have your skip positioned on the street or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the extra cost of a skip permit.

If I would like a skip on the road in Ecclesfield, will I need to get a permit?

This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a permit if it is placed on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip is on private property, such as a driveway or within your company premises.

If you need to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us during the order process, so we can make the required arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can place your skip on your own land, it will save you a few pounds.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Ecclesfield?

A local skip firm will most likely deliver your skip in Ecclesfield. We make use of a network of both regional and nationwide businesses to allow us to provide our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are assessed to ensure they satisfy the high principles we require with regards to customer service, price and environmental performance.

Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?

It usually is a good idea to be available when anybody delivers anything to your home. You can then make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it.

The same goes if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.

What size is the mini skip?

For those who have a small quantity of waste to throw out, a mini skip may be the ideal solution. What size is described as a mini skip differs from business to business, based on what sizes they supply.

2 cubic yards is considered the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. Price depends on the particular size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are fantastic for domestic jobs such as modest DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you want it put on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
