Leyburn Skip Hire FAQs

Is it okay to fill my skip higher than the top?

It is essential to never overload a skip. You should not pass the level load line that is indicated on the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it can be very dangerous to transport. Which means that when you overfill your skip, you could be required to remove the excess waste. No matter how safe you believe the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. That is hazardous and is therefore not allowed.

Am I able to throw away electrical items in my skip?

Electric powered products like TVs, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste stream and so cannot be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered products need to be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.

What is the cost of skip hire in Leyburn?

We will immediately display which sizes we offer in your area and how much each one will cost to hire. If the skip is going to be on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.

How do I order a skip online?

Ordering a skip in Leyburn with us is incredibly easy. Select the skip size you need and input a couple of details about when and where you need the skip delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then schedule to have your skip delivered on the date selected.

What happens to the waste?

The contents of the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre. Here the rubbish will be separated by machinery and by hand into numerous waste streams, including metal, paper, concrete and timber. Processing the waste in this manner helps to maximise the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.

What size skips can you deliver?

Skips come in a wide range of sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small household tasks.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a good option for garden clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to handle, the builder’s skip might be the smartest choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title implies, these represent the most popular sizes hired by builders for construction waste, such as clay and rubble. However they can equally well be used for household waste such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also offer 10-16 yard skips and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For further info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What things can I put in the skip?

This is among the most frequent questions people have about hiring a skip. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you can load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of rubbish which can result from garden projects, building work and property clearances.

Some of the most common items that we find in skips include garden soil, wood, hedge cuttings, kitchen cabinets, sinks, as well as other household objects.

There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This consists of any electronic objects (refrigerators, monitors or washing machines for example), old tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and so getting rid of them must adhere to an entirely different procedure to make sure they don’t result in damage to the environment.

How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge skip that is used to get rid of large quantities of waste. These bins are mainly for commercial use but can be hired by household customers also. However, you will want plenty of space because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger in comparison to the typical skip you will see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, roll-on roll-off containers can only be provided for light materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not suited to getting rid of concrete and rubble.

Will a skip hire company from Leyburn deliver my skip?

We use a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our clients in Leyburn and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner skip hire companies are verified and evaluated to make certain they match our expectations for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

How large is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size delivered by skip companies and is ideal for small DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms offer a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, this gives you sufficient time to fill up your skip. However, if you do need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, in the event you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?

No, you do not need to be at home when we are delivering the skip. As long as we can gain access to the place you need it located, we will take care of everything.

In case you will not be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when placing your order. For instance, you might want the skip to be positioned at a particular side of the property. Alternatively, you might need to make sure the skip does not obstruct entry to your garage.

Whatever the situation may be, provide the details when you place your order, and we will make sure your directions will be passed on to the lorry driver.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is regarded as the common skip ordered across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builder’s skip is perfect for most building and construction tasks, which is where the name stems from.

The 8 yd builder’s skip is the biggest option which can be used for hefty materials including dirt, concrete, stone and gravel.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

Using a skip which has a drop down door helps make loading rubbish into it so much easier. This is especially true with heavy materials such as soil or rubble, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away big bulky objects such as furniture much easier too.

The majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, although it will sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a drop door is required, and we will do our best to supply this.

How fast can you deliver a skip to Leyburn?

We will make sure your skip is delivered when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the following day.

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

You will need to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will most likely incur a fee for the wasted journey.

Sure, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skip sizes to locations across North Yorkshire, such as Leyburn, Whitby, Thornaby-on-Tees and Thirsk. So wherever you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Leyburn?

Usually, it is possible to have the skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But in order to do this, you have got to get consent from the local council in Leyburn, which is known as a skip permit. We will order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for your permit, and it can sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.
