Guisborough Skip Hire FAQs
Which size skips will have a drop door?
Virtually all skips can be provided with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the container, particularly with heavy materials, like garden soil and concrete, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.
Do I have to be home whenever the skip is delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we are delivering your skip. Providing we can gain access to where you want it located, we are able to manage everything.
In the event you are not likely to be in, just let us have any relevant delivery instructions when booking the order. For instance, you might prefer the skip to be dropped on a particular part of the drive. Or you might need to be sure that the skip does not hinder use of your garage.
Whatever the case may be, simply let us know when you place your order, and we will ensure your instructions are passed to the lorry driver.
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Guisborough?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want your skip to be located on land outside of your company or home, you will have to secure permission from your local authority in Guisborough, which is called a permit. If required, we will be happy to organise this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less issue to worry about. The council will charge a fee for your road permit, and you should know before ordering that securing the licence can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
Before you hire your skip, you must check that the sort of waste materials you want to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials have to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types you may throw in a skip include home items like pieces of furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use a skip to discard building and construction rubbish, like bricks, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Examples of prohibited items include electrical products, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently have to be disposed of separately from your general waste.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
Usually, you can have your skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you don’t have to rush through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is loaded before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you have asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your booking before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery area, as failed deliveries will result in a charge for a wasted journey.
What will happen to the waste?
Once you have finished filling up your skip, we come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility in or local to Guisborough where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the popular skip which is ordered throughout the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builder’s skip is ideal for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 yd builders skip is the biggest option that you can use for heavy waste like soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.
Will you deliver skips across North Yorkshire?
Yes. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we can supply skips to both residential and business customers across North Yorkshire and anywhere else in the UK.
Am I allowed to fill my skip higher than the side?
It is essential not to overload the skip. You should not pass the level load line indicated along the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it is very hazardous to move. Which means that if you overfill your skip, you may be required to take away the surplus waste. No matter how secure you feel the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be unsafe and is prohibited.

How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container used to get rid of significant volumes of waste. Generally, these skips are hired for business applications. However, residential customers may also order them. You will need to think about the area they will occupy, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they must only be hired for light-weight materials such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and stone.
Am I able to throw away electrical products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items have to be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered products such as cookers, TVs, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.
How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are great for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and broken baby toys to paving slabs and concrete. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip will save you needing to make multiple journeys to your local recycling centre.
