Below are a few of the typical questions we get relating to our skip hire services.

Horbury Skip Hire FAQs

Am I allowed to fill the skip higher than the level load mark?

It is important to not overfill a skip, as you risk being asked to take off excessive waste prior to it being collected. Irrespective of what size you hire, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, because moving an overloaded container will be unsafe, as materials could drop and lead to personal injury or damage to others.

To prevent this issue, please make sure you hire a skip size suited to your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full but you have some more waste to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Horbury?

This will depend on where the skip will be located. You will only require a skip permit if it is placed on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit when your skip is on your private property, like a driveway or on your business premises.

Should you need to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, and we can make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place your skip on your own land, you will save some pounds.

How much will skip hire in Horbury cost?

Our goal is to give you the lowest priced skip hire service in Horbury. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip you hire. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you need to have the skip placed on the road or other council property, you will also need to factor in the added cost of the skip permit.

How long can I hire the skip for?

Usually, you can keep a skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you don’t need to rush through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is full prior to the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.

How long does it take to get a skip in Horbury?

We will ensure your skip is provided when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the next day.

Although we can’t guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

You should ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will in most cases incur a fee for the wasted journey.

Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, as electronic items including old televisions, refrigerators, computers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly way.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

We supply a full-range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip best for modest DIY tasks and household clearances. A popular option for bigger projects, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.

For Horbury firms with a large amount of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What size is a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most commonly hired for building projects. There are usually two skip sizes that can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which can be used to dispose of significant volumes of building and demolition waste, like dirt, concrete and bricks.

Although they are branded a builder’s skip, they can be used for multiple other household and industrial waste disposal jobs.

What will happen to the waste when the skip is collected?

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

Do I have to be home when the skip is going to be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be there at the time it is delivered. Then you can be sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip is situated precisely where you need it. The same applies if you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates restrict access.

On the other hand, if this isn’t possible, you do not have to worry. Just tell us when you are placing your booking, and we will take care of the rest.

What kinds of rubbish can you put in a skip?

It is possible to put a variety of waste in the skip. This can include timber, ceramic tiles, metal or bricks from a property clearance. Tree and bush clippings, top soil and stone from garden tasks are allowed also. Dated cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also go in a skip.

There are, however, some items that you can’t put in a skip because of the potential environment or health risk they can trigger.

You can not get rid of your refrigerator, printer or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things consist of hazardous elements in one form or another. They should be disposed of separately from your normal rubbish.

Should you require hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to organise a separate service for this material. Please contact us for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

How large is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are ideal for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furnishings and broken baby toys to paving slabs and concrete. With a total capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you having to make multiple trips to the local recycling centre.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a massive container used to dispose of large volumes of waste. These bins are predominantly for industrial use but can be used by household clients too. However, you will require plenty of space since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger compared to the typical skip you will see on the roadside.

As a result of the size, RORO containers should only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, so they are not appropriate for disposing of concrete and rubble.

Can you deliver to other areas in West Yorkshire?

Indeed, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skip sizes to areas throughout West Yorkshire, including Horbury, Rothwell, Leeds and Castleford. So wherever you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

Am I able to have a skip which has a drop door?

The vast majority of skip sizes can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the bin, particularly with weighty materials, like garden soil and rubble, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.

Who will deliver my skip?

We use a large network of both regional and national skip hire companies to supply skips to our customers in Horbury and the rest of the UK. Our partner firms are approved and evaluated to ensure they match our expectations for price, service, recycling rates and reliability.
