Keighley Skip Hire FAQs

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Keighley?

Usually, it is possible to get your skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But in order to do this, you must get permission from your local council in Keighley, which is called a skip permit. We are able to arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for this license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to authorise this.

Am I able to put all types of rubbish in a skip?

You can load your skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly generated from house clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include timber, soil, rubble, garden trimmings, furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you throw in the skip would depend on which size you have ordered, as there is a weight restriction. For example, when you will be using a skip for heavy construction wastes like rubble or top soil, the maximum size you could hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

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

What size is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered by skip companies and is ideal for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms offer a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

How long can I hire a skip for?

You can usually keep the skip for as long as 2 weeks from your date of delivery. You are able to provide a preferred collection date at the time you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can tell us once you have loaded the skip, and then we will plan the collection. Usually, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer over hectic periods.

What are the different skip sizes available?

Skips come in a number of sizes to match various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is great for small household tasks.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a good choice for loft clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more substantial waste disposal job to handle, a builder’s skip could be the best option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label indicates, these represent the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for building waste, such as soil and hardcore. However they can equally well be used for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also offer 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For additional information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Do all skips come with a drop door?

For anyone who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is ideal for disposing of heavy building and demolition materials, as it can be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop down door, however these are more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically low enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you want a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our utmost to make sure a container which has a drop door is supplied.

Can I put electrical items in my skip?

Unfortunately this is not allowed, since electrical items such as old TVs, freezers, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly manner.

What is classed as being a builders skip?

The builders skip is the most common skip that is hired across the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builders skip is ideal for most building work, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 yard builders skip is the biggest option that you can use for heavy materials like soil, concrete, rock and gravel.

It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

Do I have to be there when the skip is delivered?

It is always a good idea to be there when anyone delivers anything to your property. That allows you to ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located precisely where you want it.

The same applies for those who have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.

Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?

It is very important not to overload your skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take out surplus waste before it can be picked up. Regardless of the size you order, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as transporting an overloaded container will be hazardous, as rubbish could fall and result in injuries or damage to others.

To prevent this situation, please ensure that you hire a skip size suitable for your waste removal needs. If your skip is full and you have more waste to dispose of, we are happy to provide an exchange.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the following day. In some instances, we can even offer a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed when going through the online order process.
