Below are a few of the common questions we get relating to our skip hire and recycling services.
High Bentham Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is the most frequent skip which is used across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is fantastic for most building and construction work, which is where the name stems from.
The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip will be the largest size that can be used for hefty waste like garden soil, concrete, rock and gravel.
Can I put all sorts of rubbish in the skip?
It is possible to put a wide array of waste into your skip. This can include wood, ceramic tiles, plastics or concrete from a household clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, top soil and rock from garden work is allowed too. Dated units from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be discarded in the skip.
However, there are some items that you cannot put in a skip a result of the possible environment or health risks they could trigger.
You can not throw in your fridge freezer, television or your old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things include hazardous elements in one form or another. They should be disposed of separately from your normal rubbish.
If you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to arrange an independent service for this waste. Feel free to get in touch for further details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
Will a skip hire company from High Bentham deliver my skip?
Since we provide a nationwide skip service, we use a diverse network of approved companies. These can include small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to ensure they meet our high customer service and environmental principles.
What is the cost of skip hire in High Bentham?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in High Bentham, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you which skip sizes we offer in your area and how much each one will cost to order. If your skip will be on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.
What skip sizes have a drop door?
Nearly all skips can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the skip, especially with weighty materials, such as soil and concrete, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, like household furniture.
Can I put electronic products in my skip?
No, you can not put old electronic waste products in a skip. This includes things such as laptops, hobs, tumble dryers, fridges and monitors. Electric items can’t be discarded in a skip as they can include dangerous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.
How big is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are fantastic for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and old baby toys to paving blocks and soil. With a capacity of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you needing to make multiple trips to the local recycling centre.
When will my skip be delivered?
If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the following day. Sometimes, we can even provide a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed as part of the order process.
Is it ok to fill the skip above the level load line?
No. You can only fill your skip up to the level load line. Loading rubbish up over this line will make it dangerous to move, and you can be told to remove the excess waste before your skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.

Do you deliver skips across North Yorkshire?
In addition to delivering our range of skips to High Bentham, we also deliver to other towns and villages within North Yorkshire. By utilising a network of regional and national waste management businesses, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering in High Bentham, Norton-on-Derwent or Harrogate, we have got you covered.
Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?
After you have finished with your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste recycling centre either in or local to High Bentham where we separate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in High Bentham?
Generally, it is possible to get your skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to do this, you must get consent from the local authority in High Bentham, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for this permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
What skip sizes do you supply?
Skips are available in a selection of sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is great for small domestic projects.
The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is an excellent option for garage clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more substantial waste disposal job to take on, the builder’s skip could be the most suitable choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name indicates, these are the most typical sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, such as clay and stone. But they can equally well be used for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.
We also supply 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, that gives you sufficient time to load your skip. However, if you need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, in the event you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just contact us when you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.
Do I have to be there when the skip will be delivered?
You don’t have to be at your property when the skip will be delivered, however it can help. Being home whenever the skip is due for delivery means you can ensure the lorry can be given complete access and that your skip will be located precisely where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is being hired to your company premises, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, for those who can’t be available for delivery, don’t worry. We just ask you to tell us when you place your order, and we will arrange everything from there.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
The roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a substantial container used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These bins are predominantly for commercial use but can be used by domestic clients as well. However, you will want a good amount of space since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger than the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.
Due to the size, RORO skips should only be used for light materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and rubble.
