Do all skips come with a drop down door?
In general, most skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, depending on the size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful if hiring a big builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow waste directly into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, since they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
Prior to ordering your skip, you must ensure that the type of waste materials you intend to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials must be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types you can discard in a skip include home goods like furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use a skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, such as timber, dirt, rubble, metals and gravel.
Some examples of prohibited items include things like electrical items, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently have to be disposed of separately from general waste.
How long will it take to get a skip in Hemsworth?
We can usually supply skips to Hemsworth the following working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking platform will provide you with various delivery dates to choose from. So whether you want the skip to arrive asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
What is a mini skip?
When you have a small amount of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip might be the ideal option. What size is identified as a mini skip is different from business to business, according to what sizes they provide.
The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. Price depends on the particular size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for domestic tasks including small DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The term builder’s skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The name originates from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are fantastic for a multitude of residential and commercial projects. They are the biggest size skips that you can use for hefty builders waste such as garden soil, stone and concrete.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be in on the day the skip is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has total access and that the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it. This also applies when you have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly when gates limit access.
On the other hand, when this isn’t feasible, you don’t have to be concerned. Simply let us know when making your order, and we will handle the rest.
Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it hazardous to move, and you will probably have to empty any rubbish over the level load mark. This means you can not make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other object, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty of care to ensure that containers are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please be sure to order the correct size of skip for your requirements and get in touch if you are unsure which size you require. We would be happy to help.
Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Hemsworth?
Generally, it will be possible to have your skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But to do this, you will need to get approval from the local council in Hemsworth, which is known as a skip permit. We will arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council do charge a fee for this license, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.
How much does skip hire in Hemsworth cost?
This will depend on the size you will need and if you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the least expensive option. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used primarily in business settings.

What happens to the waste?
Once you have finished with your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling station either in or local to Hemsworth where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products must be kept separate from general rubbish to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electronic items including cookers, monitors, kettles, computers and even hair straighteners.

Since we offer a UK-wide skip hire service, we use a comprehensive network of verified and approved businesses. These vary from small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental standards.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container that can be used to transport huge volumes of waste. Primarily, these type of containers are hired for commercial applications. However, household customers may also hire them. It is important to take into account the space they take up, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be hired for light-weight materials like paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of soil and rubble.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, that gives you sufficient time to fill up your skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, if you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just tell us when you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
