Guiseley Skip Hire FAQs
When will my skip be delivered?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We will typically give you a next day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip on private property, as to be on public property (such as a highway), you need to gain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of several factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it arriving in a AM or PM slot.
How big is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to handle many jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be situated on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.
Although most frequently hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even tackle small commercial jobs.
What will happen to the rubbish in the skip?
The contents of your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling centre. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machinery and by hand into numerous waste streams, including metal, plastics, rubble and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.
Can I fill the skip above level load mark?
It is very important never to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take off excessive waste prior to it being picked up. No matter what size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, as transporting an overloaded bin can be dangerous, as materials could drop and lead to injury or damage to others.
To avoid this issue, please ensure that you order a skip size appropriate for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have some additional waste to get rid of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large commercial scale skips used predominantly within the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for businesses that produce significant quantities of waste.
What sort of rubbish can I throw in a skip?
It is possible to throw a wide array of waste into your skip. This includes wood, tile, plastics or rubble from a household clearance. Tree and bush clippings, dirt and stone from garden work is permitted as well. Cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be discarded in a skip.
However, there are some things that you cannot put in a skip due to the possible ecological or health risks they can cause.
You cannot throw out your refrigerator, computer monitor or your old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things incorporate hazardous materials in one type or another. They should be discarded separately from normal rubbish.
If you need hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to arrange a separate collection for this waste. Feel free to contact us for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items need to be kept separate from general waste to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electric powered goods such as washing machines, televisions, kettles, computers and even hair straighteners.

How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Guiseley, you have various sizes to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard container, also known as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is excellent for small house clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also makes them well suited for household clear ups involving large items such as household furniture and beds.
We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even larger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only suited to light materials, so they can’t be hired to dispose of soil or rubble.
To get more details about the different sizes available, such as proportions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
You can usually hire your skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you have the choice of giving a preferred collection time when you make your order.
Otherwise, just tell us when you have finished loading up the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It can take a bit longer to collect your skip during busy periods, but we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip is the size of skip most frequently used for building and construction work. There are generally two sizes that can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that can be used to get rid of substantial quantities of construction and demolition waste, including dirt, rubble and rock.
Even though they are branded a builders skip, these can be used for various other household and business waste disposal tasks.
Can you deliver to other areas in West Yorkshire?
We offer a UK wide skip hire and waste management service through a network of approved and fully licensed local companies. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Guiseley, Cleckheaton, Halifax, Rothwell or another location in West Yorkshire, we can assist.
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Guiseley?
If at all possible, you should have the skip left on to a hard surface. For anybody who is doing a domestic job, then your drive will be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. However, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public land, you will have to have a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be dropped on a street, grass verge or any other public property in Guiseley. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be granted for you. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
What is the cost of skip hire in Guiseley?
This depends on the skip size you will need and if you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the lowest priced choice. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in business settings.

Do I need to be home when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be home when the skip is delivered, however it can help. Being in when the skip is delivered means you can make sure the lorry driver is given complete access and that your skip can be located precisely where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is being delivered to your company premises, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
However, if you can’t be available during the time of delivery, don’t worry. We just ask that you let us know when you place your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.
What size skips will have a drop door?
In general, most skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you require a drop down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip with a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini and midi skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
