Liversedge Skip Hire FAQs
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a large skip that is used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These containers are mainly for business use but can be hired by residential clients also. Having said that, you will need plenty of room since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger compared to the typical skip you will see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off skips should only be hired for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suited to disposing of soil and rubble.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Liversedge, you will have multiple sizes to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, also known as a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for modest household clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most frequent sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their large capacity also makes them perfect for house clear ups including large objects such as household furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for anyone with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These sizes are only suitable for light materials, so they can’t be used to get rid of soil or rubble.
For more information regarding the various sizes offered, such as measurements, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Is it ok to fill my skip higher than level load line?
No, you are only allowed to pack the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste up above this line will make it dangerous to transport, and you could be asked to get rid of the excess waste before the skip can be collected. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.
Will you deliver skips across West Yorkshire?
As well as delivering our range of skips to Liversedge, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout West Yorkshire. By utilising our network of regional and national skip hire companies, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to Liversedge, South Elmsall or Wetherby, we have got it covered.
If I require a skip on the road in Liversedge, will I need a permit?
Generally, it is possible to have a skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But in order to do this, you must get consent from your local council in Liversedge, which is called a skip permit. We can arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will impose a fee for this permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
How long can I hire the skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, that gives you sufficient time to fill up your skip. However, if you need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, should you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just let us know once you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.
What is the cost of skip hire in Liversedge?
This depends on the skip size you require and if you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the least expensive option. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in business settings.

What can I put in the skip?
This is among the most frequent questions people have about hiring a skip. The most important thing to remember is that you can fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of waste which will result from garden work, construction work and home clearances.
Among the most typical things which we see in skips include garden soil, wood, tree trimmings, kitchen units, toilets, and various other household products.
There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. For example, any electronic items (dishwashers, televisions and washing machines for example), old car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them must comply with a completely different procedure to ensure they do not result in damage to the environment.
Should I be in when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not need to be home when we deliver your skip. Providing we are able to gain access to where you need it positioned, we can manage it all.
In the event you will not be at home, simply let us know any relevant delivery instructions when placing your order. For example, you may need the skip to be positioned at a particular area of your drive. Or you may want to ensure the skip does not block use of your garage.
No matter what the situation may be, tell us when ordering, and then we will ensure your instructions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
Which skip sizes can have a drop down door?
Getting a skip which has a drop door makes filling rubbish into the skip much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste materials like dirt and stone, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up big bulky items such as household furniture a lot easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, although this may sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when making your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric objects must be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric goods such as cookers, TVs, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you have asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery position, as failed deliveries can result in a fee for the wasted journey.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip provided by skip companies and is designed for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies will offer a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Liversedge?
We use a network of both regional and national skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our clients in Liversedge and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner skip hire companies are approved and evaluated to make sure they satisfy our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.

What will happen to the waste in the skip?

It will be taken to a waste recycling facility in or local to Liversedge where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the popular skip used throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is ideal for most building and construction projects, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 yd builder’s skip is the largest option which you can use for hefty materials such as soil, concrete, rock and rubble.
