Harrogate Skip Hire FAQs

How much waste can a builders skip hold?

The builders skip is regarded as the common skip that is ordered in the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builders skip is ideal for most building jobs, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 yard builders skip will be the largest size which you can use for heavy waste such as garden soil, concrete, rock and rubble.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are great for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and old baby toys to paving slabs and rubble. With a capacity of approximately 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you needing to make numerous trips to the local recycling centre.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

No, you don’t have to be home when we are delivering the skip. As long as we can gain access to the place you want it delivered, we will manage it all.

If you will not be in, simply let us know any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For example, you might need the skip to be dropped at a particular part of the drive. Or you might need to ensure the skip doesn’t block use of your garage.

No matter what the case may be, provide the information when ordering, and we will ensure the directions will be passed to the delivery driver.

Will you deliver skips across North Yorkshire?

Certainly, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skips to locations throughout North Yorkshire, such as Harrogate, Bedale, Easingwold and Yarm. So wherever you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

Who will deliver my skip?

We utilise a network of both local and national skip hire companies to deliver skips to our customers in Harrogate and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner businesses are approved and tested to make sure they meet our standards for cost, service, recycling and reliability.

Which skip sizes have got a door?

For anyone who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is great for getting rid of hefty building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked in the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop-down door, however these are typically less common. This is because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you want a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to make sure a container that has a drop door is delivered.

How long will it take to get a skip in Harrogate?

We can normally deliver skips to Harrogate the following working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking platform will provide you with a variety of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you want a skip delivered asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?

The materials in the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre. Here the contents will be separated by machinery and also by hand into various waste materials, including soil, plastics, concrete and wood. Sorting the waste in this way helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.

How long can I hire the skip for?

Normally, you can have your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.

If I want a skip on a road in Harrogate, will I need to get a permit?

Preferably, you should have the skip left on a hard surface area. When you are doing a domestic task, then your driveway will be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. However, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public land, you will have to have a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be located on the street, grass verge or other public property in Harrogate. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be issued on your behalf. An extra cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.

How much does skip hire in Harrogate cost?

To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Harrogate, enter your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you which sizes we offer in your area and how much each option will cost to hire. If the skip is going on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large industrial size skips that are used predominantly in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for companies that produce significant volumes of waste.

What size skips do you provide?

Skips are available in a variety of different sizes to match various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small residential tasks.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a great option for garden clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant waste disposal task to take on, a builder’s skip may be the smartest choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label suggests, these are the most typical sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, like clay and hardcore. But they can just as well be used for household rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen units.

We can also provide 10-16 cubic yard bins and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further info on the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Can I load up my skip above level load line?

It is important never to overfill your skip, as you run the risk of being required to remove excessive waste prior to it being collected. Irrespective of what size you hire, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, because transporting an overloaded container is dangerous, as rubbish could drop and result in injury or damage to others.

To prevent this problem, please ensure you hire a size appropriate for your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have extra waste to dispose of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.

What can I put in the skip?

Before you hire a skip, it is important to ensure that the type of rubbish you wish to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Waste types it is possible to put in a skip include home items like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use a skip to get rid of building and construction waste, like timber, top soil, rubble, metals and gravel.

Examples of forbidden items include electrical items, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.

Am I allowed to throw electronic items in my skip?

No, you can not put old or unwanted electrical waste products in a skip. This can include things like laptops, microwaves, tumble dryers, refrigerators and television sets. These objects can’t be disposed of in the skip since they can have hazardous materials and components.

Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
