Heckmondwike Skip Hire FAQs
How do you hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you wish to hire. Tell us if the skip shall be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or council property (such as the road). After that, select the date you would like your skip to be delivered. Check your order details and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your skip to Heckmondwike on the date you have chosen.
Where does my rubbish go once the skip is collected?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into various waste streams, such as wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
Normally, you can keep a skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t need to rush through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is full prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be there when anybody delivers something to your property. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be positioned precisely where you want it.
The same goes for those who have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
However, should it be unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Heckmondwike?
To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a number of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to offer customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
How long will it take to get a skip in Heckmondwike?
We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver your skip, we strive to offer you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery location, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can lead to a fee for the wasted trip.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the popular skip that is hired across the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builder’s skip is perfect for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the name originates from.
The 8 yd builders skip will be the largest option that can be used for heavy materials including dirt, concrete, rock and gravel.
If I would like a skip on a road in Heckmondwike, will I need to get a permit?
Generally, it is possible to have the skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to do this, you will need to get approval from your local authority in Heckmondwike, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The council do impose a fee for this license, and it may sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.
Do all skips have a drop door?
The vast majority of containers can be provided with a drop down door, making them easy to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the bin, especially with heavy materials, such as soil and concrete, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.
What sizes do skips come in?
We can offer a full-range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip best for modest DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A common option for bigger tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Heckmondwike businesses with a big amount of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What sort of rubbish can you put in a skip?
Prior to ordering a skip, you must ensure that the kind of waste materials you need to dispose of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials must be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you could throw in your skip include household items like pieces of furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use your skip to discard building and demolition waste, including timber, top soil, rubble, metals and gravel.
Some examples of prohibited items include electronic products, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore have to be disposed of separately from general waste.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you operate a company in Heckmondwike and wish to dispose of large quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container may be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that are available.
As the label indicates, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike normal skips, that are lifted using chains.
How much waste will the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the smallest skip provided by skip firms and is perfect for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip firms will provide a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

We provide a nationwide skip hire service using a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you would like skip hire in Heckmondwike, Pontefract, Otley, Bradford or any other location in West Yorkshire, we are able to assist.
Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?
It is very important not to overload your skip, as you run the risk of being told to take out excess waste prior to it being collected. Irrespective of what size you order, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, since transporting an overloaded skip can be unsafe, as objects could fall and result in injury or damage to others.
To prevent this situation, please ensure you order a skip size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full but you have some additional rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
What is the cost of skip hire in Heckmondwike?
The cost of hiring a skip in Heckmondwike is determined by the size of skip you need. The least expensive skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and clearances. If you require a bigger skip, like an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also increase if you want to have the skip placed on the highway, because you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, since electronic items such as old TVs, fridges, computers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects need to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly way.
