Hornsea Skip Hire FAQs

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

Typically, most skips can be provided with a hinged door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you want a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip that has a drop door is mainly useful if choosing a large builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow your rubbish straight into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, since they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the biggest containers that can be used to dispose of heavy building and construction waste materials such as stone, bricks, rubble or garden soil.

The builder’s skip is perfect for a variety of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning out the garage, these substantial skips will often be the most affordable solution available.

What things can I put in my skip?

You are allowed to fill your skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly produced from loft clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include timber, soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you put in the skip depends on the skip size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, in the event that you will be using your skip for heavy construction wastes such as bricks or garden soil, the largest size you would be able to hire is the 8 yard builders skip.

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

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

Typically, you can keep a skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t need to hurry through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.

If I need a skip on a road in Hornsea, will I need a permit?

This will depend on where the skip will be located. You will only need to have a permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit when your skip is on private property, such as a driveway or within your company premises.

If you have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know as part of the order process, so we can make the required arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position the skip on private land, you will save some money.

How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A roll-on roll-off skip, often known as a RORO, is a huge skip used to get rid of large quantities of waste. These skips are mainly for industrial use but can be hired by household customers as well. Having said that, you need plenty of room since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger compared to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, roro skips should only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suited to disposing of concrete and bricks.

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?

Unfortunately not, because electronic products such as old televisions, freezers, laptops and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly fashion.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Hornsea?

The cost of hiring a skip in Hornsea will depend on the size of skip you want. The least expensive skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you need a larger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also increase if you need to have your skip on the highway, because you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

What happens to the waste in the skip?

Once you have finished with your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste recycling station in or local to Hornsea where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small containers are ideal for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and old toys to paving blocks and bricks. With a capacity of approximately 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make numerous journeys to your local recycling centre.

Will a Hornsea skip hire company deliver my skip?

To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work in partnership with a variety of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we can offer customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.

Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?

You should not fill up your skip beyond the level load line. When you fill it above the tip of this mark, it means that your skip will not be safe to transport, and you can be asked to take off the excess waste prior to it being picked up.

Do I need to stay in when the skip is delivered?

It usually is best if you can be in when anybody delivers anything to your property. You can then make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it.

The same goes for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
