Hebden Bridge Skip Hire FAQs
Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it unsafe to transport, and you will then have to remove any items above the level load mark. This also means that you can not use sheets of wood, doors or another item, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty of care to ensure that bins aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please be sure you select the appropriate size of skip for your needs and get in contact if you are unsure which size you need. We would be pleased to help.
How big is a builder’s skip?
The phrase builders skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The term originates from the fact that these are the most common sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are ideal for numerous domestic and industrial jobs. They are the largest size skips that can be used for heavy builders waste like top soil, stone and gravel.
Can I throw electronic items in my skip?
Electrical products such as TVs, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so can not be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered objects should be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly way.
What things can I put in the skip?
You are allowed to throw a variety of waste types into the skip. This can include wood, ceramic tiles, metal or rubble from a house clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, top soil and stone from garden tasks are permitted as well. Cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also go in the skip.
However, there are a few items that you cannot put in a skip a result of the potential ecological or health risk they can trigger.
You can’t throw in your freezer, computer or old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items consist of hazardous components in one kind or another. They should be discarded separately from your normal rubbish.
Should you require hazardous waste removal, we may be able to arrange a separate collection for this waste. Please contact us for more information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you run a business in Hebden Bridge and want to dispose of large quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container might be a perfect option. Available in 20 – 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers that are available.
As the name indicates, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, which are picked up by using chains.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
If you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is made for disposing of heavy building and construction rubbish, as it can be pushed in to the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop door, however these are generally more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, please let us know when placing your order. We will do our very best to make sure a skip which has a drop door is delivered.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Hebden Bridge?
Generally, it will be possible to have your skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to do this, you have got to get approval from the local council in Hebden Bridge, which is called a skip permit. We will order this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for the permit, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
What is the cost of skip hire in Hebden Bridge?
The cost of getting a skip in Hebden Bridge is determined by the size of skip you want. The cheapest skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and clearances. If you need a larger skip, like an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also increase if you want to have the skip placed on the highway, as you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Do you deliver to other areas in West Yorkshire?
Certainly. 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 deliver skips to residential and commercial customers throughout West Yorkshire and elsewhere within the UK.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Hebden Bridge?
To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work in partnership with a number of local and national businesses. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we can offer customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be there when anybody delivers anything to your home. You can then ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be dropped just where you need it.
The same thing applies for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
What sizes do skips come in?
We can supply a full-range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip great for small DIY jobs and house clearances. A popular option for larger jobs, renovations and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Hebden Bridge firms with a big amount of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How long can I keep a skip for?
You can usually have your skip for up to 2 weeks from your delivery date. It is possible to give a preferred pick up day at the time you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us after you have loaded the skip, and we will organise the collection. Usually, this will be the following working day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer over busy times.
What will happen to the waste once the skip is picked up?
The contents of your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer centre. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machinery and by hand into various waste materials, like soil, cardboard, hardcore and wood. Processing the waste in this manner helps to maximise the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.
What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Hebden Bridge?
Hiring a skip in Hebden Bridge through us is very easy. Pick the skip size you need and input a couple of details about when and where you need the skip delivered. You then pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then schedule to have your skip delivered to you.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a date that suits you. We will usually offer you a next day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, since to go on public property (like a highway), you must gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of several factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it arriving within a morning or afternoon slot.
How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact skip available from skip companies and is designed for smaller DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
