Leeds Skip Hire FAQs
Will you deliver skips across West Yorkshire?
Yes, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skip sizes to locations throughout West Yorkshire, including Leeds, Castleford, Silsden and Ilkley. So no matter where you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
Will a skip hire company from Leeds deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both local and national skip hire firms to supply skips to our clients in Leeds and the rest of the UK. All of our partner skip hire companies are verified and tested to make sure they satisfy our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial industrial size skips used predominantly in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for organisations that generate significant quantities of waste.
How long can I keep a skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to 14 days. In most cases, that will give you plenty of time to load your skip. However, if you do need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, in the event you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just tell us once you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.
How many different skip sizes are available?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Leeds, you have several sizes to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest home clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their big capacity also makes them great for house tidy ups including bulky objects like pieces of furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for customers with even larger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only suited to light materials, so they cannot be hired to get rid of garden soil or stone.
To get more information regarding the different skip sizes available, such as proportions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
What is the cost of skip hire in Leeds?
This is determined by the skip size you need and whether you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the cheapest choice. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in industrial settings.

Am I allowed to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items need to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electric powered products such as tumble dryers, televisions, kettles, computers and even hair straighteners.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
If you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is great for getting rid of heavy building and demolition waste materials, as it can be walked in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop down door, though these are typically less common. This is because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to ensure a container with a drop door is provided.
Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t have to be at home when the skip is being delivered, however it will help. Being in whenever the skip is due to be delivered means you can make sure the lorry driver is given full access and that your skip will be positioned exactly where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to company property, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
However, if you can’t be around during delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you book your order, and we will organise things from there.
How large is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are perfect for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and broken baby toys to paving slabs and garden soil. Having a capacity of approximately 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make multiple trips to the local recycling centre.
What happens to the rubbish once the skip is picked up?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into a range of waste streams, which includes stone, metals and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!
What sort of waste can you dispose of in a skip?
This is one of the most common questions people have about our skip hire service. What is important to keep in mind is that you can fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are so many types of rubbish which can result from garden work, construction work and house clearances.
Some of the most common things which we collect in skips include soil, wood, tree cuttings, cabinets, toilets, and various other household objects.
There are some waste materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This consists of any electronic objects (fridges and freezers, televisions and computers for example), old tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all deemed hazardous waste, and getting rid of them has to adhere to an entirely different procedure to ensure they do not result in damage to the environment.
What is the size of a builders skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most often supplied for construction and demolition work. There are generally two different sizes that can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to get rid of significant quantities of building and demolition waste materials, including garden soil, concrete and stone.
Although they are branded a builder’s skip, these can be used for many other residential and industrial waste disposal tasks.
How long does it take to get a skip in Leeds?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you have requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your booking prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we try to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery location, as failed deliveries can result in a fee for a wasted journey.
How do I order a skip?
We have designed our online booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to enter your address to see all the different skip sizes we are able to provide in Leeds. Select the best size to meet your needs and provide us with the details of when and where you need the skip to be delivered. You can then make payment with the secure payment system, and we will send you an email to confirm the order once your order is done!
Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Leeds?
If possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface area. For anybody who is carrying out a domestic task, then a drive will be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. On the other hand, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public property, you will have to get a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be positioned on a street, grass verge or any other public property in Leeds. If this is needed, we will request the license to be granted on your behalf. An additional fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.
Is it okay to load the skip above level load line?
You should not fill a skip beyond the level load line. When you fill it up over the tip of this level, it means that your skip will not be secure to transport, and you can be asked to remove the excess rubbish prior to it being collected.
