Featherstone Skip Hire FAQs
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large industrial size skips used predominantly in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for companies that generate large amounts of waste.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Featherstone?
To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work in partnership with a number of local and national companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to provide customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
What is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a cheap skip to get rid of some household waste, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to take on many jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be placed on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit.
Although most commonly hired by household customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.
How can I order a skip?
Hiring a skip shouldn’t be difficult. That is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, enter your address to view all the different skip sizes we are able to deliver to Featherstone. Choose which size you wish to hire, and confirm whether it is going to be dropped on private property. Type in your details and make payment using our secure online payment platform.
Once your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?
The contents of your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling facility. Here the contents will be segregated by machinery and also by hand into various waste materials, including soil, cardboard, hardcore and timber. Processing the waste in this manner helps to increase the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the biggest containers that can be used to get rid of weighty building and demolition waste such as stone, concrete, rubble or garden soil.
A builder’s skip is ideal for a wide range of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or clearing out your garden shed, these big containers will often be the most cost-effective option available.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Featherstone?
This is determined by the size you require and if you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the least expensive choice. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in business settings. To receive an immediate price for skip hire in Featherstone, simply enter your delivery postcode into the search box above.
How fast can you deliver a skip to Featherstone?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We can normally give a following day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (for example a street), you need to get a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of many factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact 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 are the different skip sizes to select from?
Skips are available in a selection of different sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is perfect for small residential projects.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold around 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is an excellent choice for loft clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
When you have a more substantial waste disposal task to handle, the builder’s skip might be the smartest choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name indicates, they are the most typical sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, including soil and hardcore. However they can equally well be hired for household rubbish such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.
We can also deliver 10-16 cubic yard bins and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
Before you hire your skip, you must make sure that the sort of rubbish you want to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you are able to discard in your skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use a skip to throw out building and demolition waste, such as wood, dirt, stone, metals and gravel.
Some examples of prohibited items include electronic products, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and therefore need to be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be in when the skip is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip is placed exactly where you want it. The same is applicable if you have a skip delivered to business property, especially when gates limit access.
On the other hand, if this is not feasible, you do not need to be concerned. Simply let us know when placing your booking, and then we will take care of the rest.
Which size skips have a drop door?
Generally speaking, almost all skips can be provided with a hinged door, dependant upon size, availability and location. If you want a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip with a drop door is primarily beneficial when you are hiring a large builder’s skip, since it enables you to wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, because they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Am I able to throw electrical products in my skip?
No, you cannot put old electronic waste products in a skip. This can include things like laptops, microwaves, dishwashers, freezers and computer monitors. These products can’t be discarded in your skip as they can include hazardous materials and components.
Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.
Do you deliver skips across West Yorkshire?
Indeed, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skip sizes to areas across West Yorkshire, including Featherstone, Hemsworth, Todmorden and Holmfirth. So wherever you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this makes it unsafe to move, and you will have to remove any materials over the level load mark. This also means you cannot use sheets of wood, doors or some other object, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty to ensure that containers are not overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure you hire the correct size of skip for your needs and get in touch if you’re not sure which size you require. We would be pleased to help.
Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Featherstone?
Ideally, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface. If you are doing a domestic job, then a driveway will be ideal. 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 land, you have got to obtain a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be dropped on the street, grass verge or any other public property in Featherstone. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be issued for you. An extra cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can generally keep the skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection is as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of offering a preferred collection date when you place your order.
Alternatively, simply tell us when you have finished loading up the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the following working day.
It could take a little while longer to collect your skip during busy times, however we will always try to come as quickly as possible.
