Knottingley Skip Hire FAQs
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge industrial scale skips that are used primarily within the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for organisations that produce significant quantities of waste materials.
Do I need to be at home when the skip will be delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we are able to access where you need it positioned, we are able to take care of everything.
For those who are not going to be in, simply provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you place the order. For instance, you may prefer the skip to be dropped on a particular area of your drive. Or you might need to ensure that the skip does not block use of your garage.
No matter what the case may be, simply tell us when ordering, and then we will ensure your directions will be passed on to the delivery driver.
Am I allowed to throw electrical items in the skip?
No, you cannot dispose of old or unwanted electrical waste items in a skip. This includes things such as laptops or computers, microwaves, tumble dryers, fridges and televisions. Electric objects can’t be disposed of in the skip since they can contain dangerous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.
Will you deliver skips across West Yorkshire?
Yes. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we are able to offer skips to both household and business customers throughout West Yorkshire and elsewhere within the UK.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most often supplied for building and demolition projects. There are usually two different sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to dispose of substantial quantities of construction and demolition waste, like soil, concrete and rock.
Although labelled a builders skip, they can be used for multiple other household and commercial waste disposal jobs.
When will my skip be delivered?
When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the following day. Sometimes, we will even provide a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days are confirmed during the order process.
How long can I hire the skip for?
Typically, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t need to rush through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is full prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We can offer a full range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip great for modest DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A common choice for larger sized jobs, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard skip.
For Knottingley businesses which have a significant volume of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Am I allowed to load the skip above the top?
It is important not to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being asked to remove excess waste before it can be collected. Whatever size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, because moving an overloaded bin can be hazardous, as objects could fall and result in injuries or damage to others.
To avoid this issue, please be sure you hire a size appropriate for your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some extra waste to get rid of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
It is possible to throw a wide array of rubbish in the skip. This includes timber, tile, plastics or concrete from a property clearance. Plant and bush clippings, soil and stone from garden tasks are allowed as well. Cupboards from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also go in the skip.
There are, however, some things that can’t be put in a skip due to the possible environmental or health risks they can cause.
You can not throw out your freezer, printer or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things contain hazardous materials in one type or another. They should be disposed of separately from your normal rubbish.
If you need hazardous waste removal, we might be able to schedule an independent collection for this material. Feel free to email for further information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are great for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and broken toys to paving slabs and rubble. Having a capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you having to make multiple visits to your local recycling centre.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?
Using a skip which has a drop door helps make filling rubbish into it much easier. This is particularly true with hefty materials like dirt and hardcore, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading large bulky objects such as household furniture easier as well.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop door, however this will sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a door is required, and we will do our very best to deliver this.
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Knottingley. We work with a network of both regional and nationwide businesses to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are assessed to make sure they satisfy the high principles we demand when it comes to customer service, price and environmental performance.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into different waste streams, including wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Knottingley?
If at all possible, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. When you are doing a household project, then your driveway is going to be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. On the other hand, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you must have a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be located on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Knottingley. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be granted on your behalf. An extra cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.
