Haxby Skip Hire FAQs

Where will the rubbish be taken to once the skip is picked up?

When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into the various waste materials, including timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are perfect for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furnishings and broken baby toys to paving blocks and garden soil. With a total capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make multiple trips to your local recycling centre.

What is the size of a builders skip?

As the name implies, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often used for building and construction jobs. There are generally two sizes which can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to get rid of large quantities of building and demolition waste, such as garden soil, rubble and stone.

Although branded a builders skip, these can be used for a number of other residential and commercial waste disposal tasks.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in the skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods have to be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electrical items such as cookers, monitors, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.

Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?

You should not load the skip beyond the level load mark. When you load it over the tip of this mark, it means that your skip will not be safe and secure to move, and you can be asked to remove any extra waste prior to it being picked up.

What types of rubbish am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?

You can fill your skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from loft clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, dirt, stone, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you put in the skip will depend on which size you have hired, as there is a weight restriction. For example, in the event that you are using your skip for heavy construction waste such as rubble or dirt, the maximum size you would be able to get is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials can not be discarded in your skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.

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

If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be at home when it is delivered. You can then be sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip is positioned exactly where you need it. This also is true for those who have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly when gates restrict access.

Having said that, when this isn’t feasible, you don’t need to stress. Simply let us know when you are placing your order, and then we will handle everything.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Haxby?

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Haxby?

To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Haxby, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you the sizes we offer in your location and how much each one will cost to hire. If your skip is going to be on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

Skips come in a number of sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is great for small domestic projects.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great choice for garden clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more substantial waste disposal job to tackle, a builder’s skip may be the most suitable choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label implies, they are the most frequent sizes hired by builders for construction waste, including clay and rubble. But they can just as well be used for household rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen units.

We also deliver 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?

Generally, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and location. If you need a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Having a skip with a drop door is mainly useful when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow your waste directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini skips, because they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container used to get rid of large volumes of waste. In most cases, these containers are used for industrial uses. Having said that, domestic clients can also use them. It is essential to take into account the area they will occupy, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be utilised for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of dirt and rubble.

Do you deliver skips across North Yorkshire?

We provide a nationwide skip hire service through a network of approved and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Haxby, York, Stokesley, Skipton or another location in North Yorkshire, we are able to help.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

The standard hire period will be two weeks from the delivery date. However, when you book your skip, you can tell us a pick up date that is ideal for you. Obviously, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if the skip is finished with earlier than anticipated, let us know, and we will get it picked up as quickly as possible.

We can usually make collections within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this is not always the case during busier periods. Once collected, your waste will be transported to your local waste recycling facility, where it will be processed and sorted.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Haxby?

In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you want the skip to be located on land outside of your business or residence, you will have to obtain permission from your local council in Haxby, which is known as a skip permit. If necessary, we will be happy to organise this for you, and so it’s one less issue to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for the permit, and you should know before ordering that getting the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.

When will my skip be delivered?

When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We will typically provide a next day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (like a road), you will need to gain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to several factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it to be delivered within a AM or PM slot.

Other areas covered include York, Stokesley, Skipton, Pateley Bridge, Middleham, Yarm, Thirsk and Harrogate.
