Huddersfield Skip Hire FAQs
Do you deliver skips across West Yorkshire?
Absolutely. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to offer skips to both household and commercial customers throughout West Yorkshire and elsewhere within the UK.
How big is a builders skip?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most frequently supplied for building and demolition projects. There are usually two different skip sizes that may be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which you can use to dispose of significant amounts of building and demolition materials, like soil, rubble and stone.
Although they are branded a builder’s skip, they can be used for various other residential and industrial waste disposal tasks.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
Electric powered objects like television sets, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore can not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric goods need to be separated from other materials. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
The roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a huge container that can be used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These skips are predominantly for commercial use but can be hired by residential customers too. However, you will need a good amount of room because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger compared to the typical skip you will likely see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, roro skips should only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suited to getting rid of concrete and bricks.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can normally hire your skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, you will have the option of offering a preferred collection time when making your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in many cases, it will be the following working day.
It might take a bit longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, but we will always try to come as quickly as possible.
What is the cost of skip hire in Huddersfield?
Our goal is to give you the most affordable skip hire service in Huddersfield. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip that you hire. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have your skip positioned on the road or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the extra cost of a skip permit.
Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Huddersfield?
In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or house, you must secure authorisation from your local authority in Huddersfield, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we would be glad to organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for your road permit, and you should know before ordering that obtaining the permit can often take up to 2 working days.
What skip sizes can you provide?
We offer a whole variety of skip capacities to household and industrial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the enormous 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the various sizes you can choose from, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each skip is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
- 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

Do I need to be at home when the skip will be delivered?
You don’t need to be home when your skip is delivered, but it will help. Being there when your skip arrives means that you can make sure the driver is given complete access and that the skip can be dropped precisely where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is being delivered to company property, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, if you can’t be available at the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into various waste materials, including wood, metals, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How big is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest size delivered by skip companies and is perfect for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip firms provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
What waste can I put in my skip?
You are able to put a wide array of rubbish in the skip. This includes wood, bathroom tiles, plastics or bricks from a house clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, top soil and rock from garden tasks are allowed too. Dated cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in a skip.
There are, however, some things that you cannot put in a skip a result of the possible environment or health risk they could cause.
You can not get rid of your freezer, computer monitor or your old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things contain hazardous components in one kind or another. They must be disposed of separately from normal rubbish.
If you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to organise a separate service for this waste. Feel free to email us for further details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
The majority of containers can be supplied with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the bin, especially with weighty materials, such as dirt and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky items, like furniture.
How do you order a skip in Huddersfield?
This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip shall be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on council property (like the street). Next, choose the day you would like the skip to get delivered. Check your order and then make payment using our secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your skip to Huddersfield on the date you have selected.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Huddersfield?
As we offer a UK-wide skip hire service, we utilise a comprehensive network of verified businesses. These can include small family-run skip hire companies to national waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental requirements.
Am I allowed to fill up my skip higher than the level load mark?
It is important to never overfill the skip. You should not pass the level load line indicated along the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it can be very unsafe to transport. Which means that if you overfill your skip, you might be asked to remove the surplus waste. Regardless of how safe you believe the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This is dangerous and is therefore prohibited.
When will my skip be delivered?
When your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We can typically give a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip on private property, as to be on public property (for example a road), you will have to get a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
Due to numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it arriving within a AM or PM slot.
