Our online booking program gives you various delivery dates to select from. So whether you would like the skip delivered ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can typically keep a skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you have the choice of offering a preferred collection day when placing your order.

Alternatively, just let us know when you have finished with your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in many cases, it will be the following working day.

It may take a little while longer to pick up your skip over busy times, however we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.

Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?

You don’t have to be at your property when your skip is going to be delivered, however it can help. Being there when the skip is delivered means you can ensure the lorry is given full access and that your skip will be positioned precisely where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is being delivered to company premises, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.

Even so, for those who can’t be available during the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to let us know when you place the order, and we will organise everything from there.

Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?

Electronic objects like tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste and therefore can not be placed in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered items must be separated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.

Is it okay to fill my skip above the level load mark?

You should not fill the skip past the level load mark. If you fill it above the tip of this mark, it means your skip is not secure to transport, and you can be asked to take off any excess waste prior to it being picked up.

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

For anybody who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is perfect for disposing of heavy building and demolition materials, as it can be pushed in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop down door, although these are generally more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

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

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

As the name implies, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most commonly supplied for building jobs. There are generally two different sizes that can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that can be used to get rid of significant quantities of construction and demolition waste materials, such as dirt, rubble and rock.

Although labelled a builders skip, these can be used for a number of other residential and commercial waste disposal jobs.

Will you deliver to other areas in East Riding of Yorkshire?

Yes. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we are able to offer skips to household and commercial customers across East Riding of Yorkshire and anywhere else within the UK.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips come in a selection of different sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small household tasks.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold around 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a good option for loft clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to sort out, the builder’s skip may be the smartest choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title implies, they are the most popular sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, including soil and hardcore. But they can just as well be used for domestic rubbish such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also deliver 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

A roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a large skip used to get rid of large quantities of waste. These bins are mainly for business use but can be used by domestic clients too. Having said that, you need a good amount of room because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger in comparison to the average skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.

As a result of the size, these skips should only be used for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and paper, so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and bricks.

What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in a skip?

You may use your skip to discard many different waste types. We are experienced in collecting and handling lots of materials produced from building work, garden projects and house clearances. A few examples of allowed waste products include things like:

  • Home furnishings
  • Hedge cuttings
  • Garden soil
  • Concrete
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many waste types will be allowed, therefore whether you want to throw out metals, plastics, wood or fabric, we can normally take your rubbish away.

The volume and waste types you put in the skip can vary based on the size skip you have ordered. Skips do have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you would like dispose of garden soil and bricks, as an example, the biggest size you will be permitted to hire is the 8 yard skip.

What type of materials am I not allowed to put in a skip?

There are several waste items you will not be allowed to get rid of in the skip. The reason behind this is that these items contain hazardous elements which may be harmful to the environment. They can also be dangerous to human health, therefore they need to be disposed of separately under UK laws.

A few examples of the items that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC screens
  • Battery packs
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

What happens to the rubbish in the skip?

Once you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Kingston upon Hull where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

How big is a mini skip?

For those who have a small amount of waste to dispose of, a mini skip may be the ideal choice. What size is identified as a mini skip varies from business to business, determined by what sizes they supply.

2 cubic yards is considered the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 yard container for their smallest option. The cost is dependent on the actual size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are ideal for residential jobs such as small DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

How much will skip hire in Kingston upon Hull cost?

This is determined by the size you want and whether you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the cheapest option. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.

If I would like a skip on the road in Kingston upon Hull, will I need a permit?

This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit if the skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or on your business premises.

If you need to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with your local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on your own land, it will save you some money.

Other areas covered include Hessle, Hedon, Goole, Market Weighton, Hornsea, Bridlington, Howden and Beverley.
