Holmfirth Skip Hire FAQs

Am I allowed to fill the skip above the level load line?

I’m afraid not. You are only allowed to fill the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste up over this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you may be asked to take away the surplus waste before the skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or any other objects to raise the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.

Will you deliver to other areas in West Yorkshire?

Sure, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skips to locations across West Yorkshire, including Holmfirth, Ilkley, South Kirkby and Baildon. So regardless of where you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

How large is a mini skip?

For those who have a small quantity of waste to dispose of, a mini skip could be the perfect option. What size is identified as a mini skip varies from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they have.

2 cubic yards is the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The price is dependent on the particular size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are good for household tasks including small DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. In most cases, this will give you sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, in the event you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.

How quickly can you deliver a skip in Holmfirth?

We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you have requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you complete your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we try to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery area, as failed delivery attempts can result in a fee for the wasted trip.

What sort of rubbish am I able to put in a skip?

It is possible to fill the skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly produced from loft clearances, building work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include wood, dirt, concrete, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.

What you throw in the skip would depend on which size you have ordered, as there is a weight limit. For instance, in the event that you are using a skip for heavy building wastes such as bricks or garden soil, the largest size you could use is the 8 cubic yard.

Some materials should not be disposed of in a skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.

What happens to the waste once the skip is collected?

Once you have finished filling up your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility in or local to Holmfirth where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.

How many different skip sizes are there?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Holmfirth, you have multiple options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for modest domestic clearances and DIY work.

Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also means they are suitable for house clear ups involving large objects like furniture and beds.

We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even bigger waste disposal needs. These skips are only appropriate for light waste, so they cannot be used to dispose of soil or stone.

To get more details about the various capacities available, such as proportions, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.

If I require a skip on a road in Holmfirth, will I need to have a permit?

Preferably, you should have the skip left on a hard surface. If you are carrying out a household task, then the drive will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. On the other hand, if neither is available, the street or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public property, you will need to have a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be dropped on the street, grass verge as well as other public property in Holmfirth. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be granted on your behalf. An extra cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

Am I able to throw away electronic products in the skip?

Unfortunately this is not allowed, because electrical products including old TVs, cookers, computers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly manner.

Is it possible to get a skip that has a drop door?

Getting a skip with a drop door will make filling rubbish into it a lot easier. This is particularly true with hefty materials such as soil or concrete, which can then be walked directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up big bulky items such as household furniture easier too.

Most skips can be supplied with a drop door, but this will sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to supply this.

Will a Holmfirth skip hire company deliver my skip?

What is a builder’s skip?

The phrase 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 that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These large skips are suited to an array of domestic and commercial jobs. These are the biggest skip sizes which can be used for weighty builders waste including top soil, rubble and concrete.

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

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to dispose of large amounts of waste. In most cases, these containers are hired for commercial uses. However, household customers may also use them. It is very important take into account the space they will take up, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they must only be hired for light-weight waste such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of soil and rubble.

Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?

You don’t have to be at your property when the skip is going to be delivered, but it does help. Being in when the skip is due for delivery means that you can make sure the delivery driver is given full access and that your skip can be dropped precisely where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to your business premises, we will appreciate your help during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
