Howden Skip Hire FAQs

What is a builders skip?

The builder’s skip is the most frequent skip used across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is perfect for most building and construction jobs, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 yd builder’s skip will be the biggest size which can be used for heavy waste materials including garden soil, concrete, stone and rubble.

Will a skip hire company from Howden deliver my skip?

We utilise a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Howden and the rest of the country. Our partner skip companies are verified and tested to make sure they match our standards for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

If you run a business in Howden and want to dispose of large volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a great option. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that are available.

As the name implies, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, in contrast to conventional skips, that are picked up using chains.

Where will the waste be taken to when the skip is collected?

When you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Howden where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

It usually is best if you can be there when anybody delivers something to your home. That allows you to make sure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned just where you need it.

The same applies if you have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.

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

Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Howden?

In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or home, you need to get authorisation from the local council in Howden, which is referred to as a skip permit. If required, we will be happy to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to think about. The council does charge a fee for the road permit, plus you should know before placing your order that obtaining the licence can often take up to 2 working days.

Will you deliver skips across East Riding of Yorkshire?

Of course, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skips to areas throughout East Riding of Yorkshire, including Howden, Kingston upon Hull, Cottingham and Hessle. So wherever you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

You can normally keep a skip for as many as 14 days from your delivery date. You may give a chosen pick up date when you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can tell us after you have loaded the skip, and then we will plan your collection. In most cases, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer during hectic periods.

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are fantastic for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and broken baby toys to paving blocks and rubble. Having a volume of about 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you needing to make multiple trips to your local recycling centre.

Can I put all types of rubbish in my skip?

You can use your skip to discard a variety of waste types. We are used to collecting and processing numerous items from construction jobs, garden landscaping and property clearances. A few examples of permitted waste materials include things like:

  • Home furniture
  • Tree trimmings
  • Garden soil
  • Hardcore
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Cabinets and units

The majority of waste types are usually accepted, and so whether you wish to dispose of furniture, plastics, timber or textiles, we can usually take your waste away.

The volume and materials you put in the skip will vary based on the size skip you chosen. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you need to dispose of garden soil and rubble, for example, the largest size you will be permitted to hire is the 8 cubic yard skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?

There are several items that you will not be permitted to put in the skip. The reason behind this is that these products incorporate hazardous elements which could cause damage to the environment. They could also be damaging to human health, so they must be discarded separately under UK legislation.

A few examples of the products that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Can I throw electronic items in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products have to be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric goods like tumble dryers, televisions, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.

What sizes do skips come in?

We can provide a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip suitable for modest DIY projects and household clearances. A popular choice for bigger projects, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard skip.

For Howden businesses which generate a large amount of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Should you need some help choosing which skip size you need, have a look at our helpful skip size comparison.

Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?

No. You are only allowed to load your skip up to the level load mark. Loading rubbish up over this line would make it dangerous to transport, and you may be asked to take away the excess waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or any other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.

How do I order a skip online?

We have designed our booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to enter your delivery postcode to check out the range of skip sizes we can deliver in Howden.

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

This depends upon the skip size you require and whether you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced choice. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in business settings. To get an immediate quotation for skip hire in Howden, enter the delivery postcode into the search box above.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the very next day. In some instances, we will even provide a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed when going through the order process.

Will the skip come with a drop door?

Typically, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, depending on the size, availability and location. If you want a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip with a drop door is primarily beneficial if you are hiring a large builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow rubbish into the skip. This is not so important for mini skips, as they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Other areas covered include Kingston upon Hull, Cottingham, Hessle, Market Weighton, Hornsea, Goole, Withernsea and Hedon.
