Halifax Skip Hire FAQs
How large is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial commercial scale skips used predominantly within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for businesses that generate large quantities of waste.
What will happen to the waste in the skip?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into various waste streams, including wood, metals, paper, etc. This means that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What things can I put in my skip?
This is among the most popular questions people have about our skip hire service. The main thing to keep in mind is that you can fill up your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of rubbish which will come from garden projects, construction work and property clearances.
Some of the most typical things which we see in our skips include garden soil, timber, tree cuttings, cabinets, toilets, and various other household items.
However, there are some things that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This can include any electrical products (refrigerators, televisions and cookers for example), old car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. They are all considered hazardous waste materials, and so getting rid of them has to comply with an entirely different process to make sure they don’t cause damage to the environment.
Is it okay to load my skip above the level load line?
No. You are only allowed to pack your skip up to the level load line. Piling waste up above this line would make it dangerous to move, and you might be told to take off the extra waste before your skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or any other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Halifax?
A local skip hire company will likely deliver your skip in Halifax. We work with a network of both local and nationwide providers to enable us to provide our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are fully assessed to be sure they fulfill the high principles we demand in terms of customer service, price and environmental performance.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
Normally, you can keep a skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you don’t need to hurry through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is full ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Halifax?
Our goal is to provide you with the cheapest skip hire service in Halifax. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip that you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you need to have a skip situated on the road or other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the extra price of a skip permit.
Will you deliver to other areas in West Yorkshire?
Absolutely. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we can provide skips to residential and business customers throughout West Yorkshire and elsewhere within the UK.

What is the size of a builders skip?
The name builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These will be the biggest skips that can be used to discard substantial building waste materials such as stone, bricks, gravel or clay.
A builders skip is perfect for a wide array of jobs. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or cleaning out your garage, these substantial containers tend to be the most cost-effective solution available.
Am I allowed to throw away electrical products in the skip?
Electronic products like televisions, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste and so cannot be placed in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric products need to be separated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly manner.
Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?
It is usually best if you can be in when anyone delivers something to your house. You can then make sure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it.
The same thing goes for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Halifax?
Generally, it is possible to have your skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to do this, you need to get permission from your local council in Halifax, which is called a skip permit. We will organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your order before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will normally have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we try to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery area, as failed deliveries will lead to a fee for the wasted journey.
What is the process of hiring a skip in Halifax?
This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip is going to be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (like the street). After that, choose the date you need your skip to get delivered. Check your order and make payment using our secure online payment platform. That is it! We will deliver your skip to Halifax on the day you have chosen.
What size is the mini skip?
When you have a small amount of rubbish to throw out, a mini skip might be the ideal solution. What size is called a mini skip varies from company to company, depending on what sizes they provide.
The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. Price is dependent on the actual size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for household tasks such as small DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
Will the skip have a drop down door?
Getting a skip that has a drop door makes filling waste into it much easier. This is especially the case with heavy waste materials like soil and stone, which can then be walked directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away big bulky objects like pieces of furniture much easier too.
Most skip containers can be provided with a drop door, but this will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when making your order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.
