Am I able to get rid of electronic products in my skip?

I’m afraid this is not allowed, since electrical products such as old TVs, fridges, computers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects have to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly way.

Can I load up my skip above level load line?

You should not fill your skip beyond the level load line. If you load it above the tip of this mark, it means your skip is not safe and secure to transport, and you may be asked to take off the extra waste before it can be picked up.

Will the skip be supplied with a drop door?

Generally speaking, most skips can be provided with a drop down door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip with a drop door is primarily useful if you are choosing a big builder’s skip, since it enables you to wheelbarrow your waste directly into the skip. This is not so important for midi and mini skips, because they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What types of waste am I able to dispose of in a skip?

This is one of the most common questions people have about our skip hire service. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you may fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of waste that will come from garden projects, building work and house clearances.

Among the most typical things which we find in our skips include garden soil, timber, tree trimmings, kitchen cabinets, toilets, and various other household products.

There are also some materials that you are not allowed to put in the skip. This can include any electronic products (tumble dryers, TVs and washing machines for example), tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them needs to adhere to an entirely different procedure to make sure they do not result in harm to the environment.

Can you deliver to other areas in North Yorkshire?

Certainly, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skips to areas throughout North Yorkshire, including Knaresborough, Stokesley, Ripon and Pickering. So wherever you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

How soon can you deliver a skip in Knaresborough?

We will make sure your skip will be provided when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.

Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our very best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

It is important to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will normally incur a fee for the wasted journey.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

The roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a huge container used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These skips are mainly for commercial use but can be used by domestic clients too. Having said that, you will want lots of space as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger in comparison to the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.

As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off skips should only be hired for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and bricks.

What is classed as a builders skip?

As the name indicates, a builders skip means the size of skip most often supplied for construction jobs. There are typically two skip sizes which can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to get rid of large volumes of building and demolition waste, such as dirt, rubble and rock.

Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for various other residential and business waste disposal jobs.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

The regular hire term will be two weeks from the delivery date. However, when you order your skip, you can tell us a collection date that is ideal for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is fully loaded earlier than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it removed at the earliest opportunity.

We can normally be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to remember that this may not always be possible during busy periods. Once collected, your waste will be transported to a local waste transfer facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Knaresborough?

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

If you have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, so we can make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on your own property, you will save some money.

How large is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are great for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furniture and old toys to paving slabs and garden soil. Having a total capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you having to make numerous visits to your local recycling centre.

Do I need to be home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

No, you don’t have to be home when we deliver the skip. Provided that we can access where you need it positioned, we are able to take care of it all.

In case you are not likely to be in, simply let us have any relevant delivery directions when booking your order. For example, you may need the skip to be located at a particular side of your driveway. Or you might want to ensure that the skip does not prevent access to your garage.

Whatever the case may be, let us know when ordering, and we will ensure the instructions are passed on to the delivery driver.

Other areas covered include Stokesley, Ripon, Pickering, Settle, Richmond, Saltburn-by-the-Sea, Thornaby-on-Tees and Yarm.
