How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are big industrial size skips used mainly within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for companies that produce large amounts of waste materials.
What is a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builders skip is the size of skip most often hired for construction and demolition jobs. There are generally two different sizes that can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which you can use to dispose of significant quantities of building and demolition materials, such as dirt, concrete and rock.
Although they are branded a builders skip, they can of course be used for a number of other household and business waste disposal jobs.
Who will deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both local and national skip hire companies to deliver skips to our customers in Goldthorpe and the rest of the UK. Our partner skip hire companies are verified and evaluated to make certain they meet our expectations for price, service, recycling rates and reliability.
If I require a skip on the road in Goldthorpe, will I need a permit?
In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you want your skip to be situated on land outside of your company or home, you have got to obtain permission from your local authority in Goldthorpe, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we would be happy to arrange this for you, so it’s one less point to think about. The council does charge a fee for your permit, plus you should be aware before ordering that obtaining the permit will often take up to 2 working days.
Is it ok to load the skip higher than the level load line?
You should not fill up the skip beyond the level load line. When you load it over the tip of this mark, it means that the skip is not safe to move, and you might be asked to take off the extra rubbish prior to it being collected.
What can I put in the skip?
Before hiring a skip, it is important to ensure that the kind of waste you need to dispose of is allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials need to be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Waste types you could throw in your skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use a skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, including wood, dirt, rubble, metals and gravel.
Examples of prohibited items include electronic items, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be discarded separately from your general rubbish.
How soon can you deliver a skip to Goldthorpe?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver your skip, we try to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery site, as failed delivery attempts can result in a charge for the wasted trip.
Am I allowed to put electrical items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate from general waste materials to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric goods such as cookers, televisions, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.
Do all skips have a drop door?
In general, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop down door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you need a drop down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful if hiring a large builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow your rubbish directly into the skip. This is not so important for mini skips, since they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when your skip is going to be delivered, however it can help. Being there when the skip is delivered means you can ensure the lorry is given full access and that the skip can be located precisely where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is being delivered to your business premises, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, if you can’t be around during delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask that you tell us when you place your order, and then we will organise everything from there.
What is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household rubbish, the mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to tackle numerous tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be positioned on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most frequently hired by household customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can normally keep your skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, there is the option of providing a preferred collection day when you place your order.
Alternatively, simply tell us when you have finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It might take a little bit longer to collect your skip over busy times, but we will always try to come as quickly as possible.
Can you deliver to other areas in South Yorkshire?
We provide a national skip hire service using a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Goldthorpe, Royston, Wombwell, Barnsley or another site in South Yorkshire, we can assist.
What happens to the rubbish when the skip is collected?
The contents of the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer centre. Here the waste will be separated by machines and by hand into different waste materials, such as metal, paper, stone and wood. Processing the waste in this way helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.
What is the cost of skip hire in Goldthorpe?
Our goal is to give you the cheapest skip hire service in Goldthorpe. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip that you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip situated on the road or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the added price of a skip permit.
