Leek Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to pile up the waste in my skip?
You must not fill up the skip beyond the level load mark. When you load it over the tip of this mark, it means that your skip will not be secure to transport, and you might be asked to take off any extra waste prior to it being collected.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Leek?
The price of hiring a skip in Leek is determined by the size of skip you want. The lowest priced option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you require a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also increase if you want to have your skip on the highway, since you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Leek?
If possible, you should have the skip left on a hard surface. When you are doing a domestic task, then the drive is going to be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you will have to obtain a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be dropped on a road, grass verge or other public property in Leek. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be issued on your behalf. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.
Can you deliver skips across Staffordshire?
We offer a UK wide skip hire service through a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Leek, Penkridge, Madeley, Biddulph or another location in Staffordshire, we can help.
Will a Leek skip hire company deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our customers in Leek and the rest of the country. Each of our partner businesses are approved and tested to guarantee they meet our expectations for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.
How long does it take to get a skip in Leek?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve requested. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your booking before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver, we strive to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery area, as failed deliveries can lead to a fee for the wasted journey.
Am I able to put electronic items in the skip?
No, you cannot throw old or unwanted electronic waste items in your skip. This can include items like printers, microwaves, tumble dryers, fridges and tv sets. These products can’t be disposed of in a skip because they can have dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
Typically, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t need to rush through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Leek, you will have numerous sizes to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for small domestic clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most popular sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also means they are ideal for house clear ups involving large objects like household furniture and beds.
We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These sizes are only suitable for lightweight waste materials, so they can not be used to get rid of soil or rubble.
For further details about the different skip sizes available, such as measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
What is a mini skip?
For those who have a small quantity of waste to dispose of, the mini skip could be the best solution. What size is identified as a mini skip varies from business to business, determined by what sizes they offer.
The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to have a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. The cost is based on the specific size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are great for household jobs like small DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
Once 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 materials, such as wood, metals, plastics, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you offer?
If you operate a business in Leek and need to get rid of substantial quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container might be a perfect choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips that can be hired.
As the name suggests, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, as opposed to standard skips, which are picked up by using chains.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we are delivering the skip. So long as we can access where you want it located, we are able to manage everything.
For those who are not going to be in, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when you place the order. For example, you may need the skip to be positioned at a particular part of the property. Alternatively, you might want to make sure the skip does not hinder entry to your garage.
Whatever the case might be, tell us when ordering, and we will ensure the instructions are passed on to the delivery driver.
How can I order a skip in Leek?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us if the skip shall be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or council property (like the road). Next, choose the date you need your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment with our secure online payment system. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to Leek on the day you have chosen.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
Using a skip that has a drop down door makes loading waste into it a lot easier. This is especially true with heavy waste materials such as dirt or stone, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away big bulky items such as furniture a lot easier as well.
The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, although it will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to supply this.
What waste am I allowed to put in my skip?
Before you hire your skip, you must check that the sort of waste you need to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials need to be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types you may discard in a skip include household items like furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use your skip to discard building and construction waste, such as timber, dirt, rubble, metals and gravel.
Some examples of forbidden items include things like electrical products, tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently must be discarded separately from any general rubbish.
How big is a builders skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yd skip. The name stems from the fact that they are the most common sizes ordered by builders and tradespeople.
These substantial skips are great for numerous domestic and industrial tasks. These are the biggest size skips which you can use for weighty builders waste such as soil, stone and concrete.
