Elland Skip Hire FAQs
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can usually keep the skip for up to 14 days from your delivery date. It is possible to give a chosen pick up date when you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can tell us when you have finished, and we will arrange the collection. Generally, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer during busy times.
Who will deliver my skip?
Since we provide a UK-wide skip hire service, we use an extensive network of verified and approved companies. These range from small local skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental principles.
Is it ok to stack up waste in my skip?
You should not fill up your skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means your skip is not safe to transport, and you may be asked to remove any excess rubbish prior to it being collected.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a substantial container that is used to dispose of large volumes of waste. These bins are primarily for business use but can be hired by residential customers also. Having said that, you will need plenty of room as these skips vary 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, RORO skips can only be provided for light materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and bricks.
How do I order a skip?
Hiring a skip in Elland with us is very straightforward. Choose the skip size you need and enter a few details about where and when you need the skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and arrange to have your skip delivered on the date selected.
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, as electrical items like old TVs, freezers, computers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects must be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly way.
Where does my waste be taken to when the skip is collected?
The materials in the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling facility. Here the contents will be segregated by machinery and also by hand into different waste streams, including metal, paper, hardcore and timber. Sorting the waste in this way helps to maximise the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.
What is the cost of skip hire in Elland?
Our aim is to provide you with the most affordable skip hire service in Elland. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip that you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have your skip positioned on the road or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the additional cost of the skip permit.
Can I get a skip that has a drop door?
When you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop door. This is great for getting rid of heavy building and demolition materials, as it can be walked into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop down door, though these are typically less common. The reason being these sizes are typically small enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to make sure a container that has a drop door is provided.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be at home when the skip is delivered, but it does help. Being home whenever the skip is delivered means that you can ensure the driver can be given full access and that the skip can be located exactly where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is being hired to a company premises, we will appreciate your help during delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
However, if you can’t be around during delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place the order, and we will organise things from there.
How soon can you deliver a skip to Elland?
When you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the following day. Sometimes, we will even provide a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed as part of the order process.
Do you deliver to other areas in West Yorkshire?
Yes. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we can supply skips to both residential and business customers throughout West Yorkshire and elsewhere within the UK.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest size provided by skip companies and is ideal for small DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies will offer a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
You are able to fill up the skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly generated from loft clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include wood, garden soil, concrete, garden trimmings, furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you throw in the skip depends on which skip size you have hired, as there is a weight restriction. For instance, when you will be using a skip for heavy construction wastes such as stone or soil, the biggest size you could get is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials cannot be discarded in your skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.
What skip sizes do you supply?
We offer a full range of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip suitable for modest DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A popular choice for larger sized tasks, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Elland businesses which have a significant amount of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Elland?
If at all possible, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. If you are carrying out a residential task, then a drive is going to be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. However, if neither is available, the road or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public land, you need to obtain a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be located on the road, grass verge or any other public property in Elland. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be issued for you. An extra charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is the most common skip that is used across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builder’s skip is fantastic for most building and construction tasks, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip is the largest option which you can use for heavy materials such as soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.
