Loftus Skip Hire FAQs
What waste materials am I allowed to put in the skip?
This is among the most frequent questions people have about our service. The main thing to consider is that you may fill up your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of waste that could result from garden projects, building work and home clearances.
Among the most typical items that we see in skips include soil, wood, hedge trimmings, kitchen cabinets, bathroom suites, and various other household items.
There are some materials that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. For example, any electronic objects (fridges and freezers, TVs or printers for example), old tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste, and so disposing of them needs to comply with a completely different procedure to make sure they don’t result in harm to the environment.
Is it okay to fill up my skip above the top?
No, you must only load your skip up to the level load mark. Piling rubbish up above this line makes it dangerous to transport, and you might be asked to take away the surplus waste before your skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.
Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?
No, you can not throw old electrical waste products in a skip. This can include things such as laptops, microwaves, dishwashers, fridges and computer monitors. Electric objects can’t be disposed of in your skip as they can include hazardous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Having a skip that has a drop door helps make loading waste into it much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste materials like soil or stone, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading up large bulky objects such as furniture easier also.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, but it will sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.
How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?
The builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These are the largest containers that can be used to discard substantial building and construction materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or dirt.
A builder’s skip is perfect for a wide array of jobs. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out the attic, these big containers tend to be the most affordable solution available.
Do you deliver to other areas in North Yorkshire?
Sure, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skips to areas across North Yorkshire, including Loftus, Tadcaster, Pateley Bridge and Kirkbymoorside. So regardless of where you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
How long does it take to get a skip in Loftus?
We will ensure your skip is provided when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the next day.
Although we are not able to guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You have to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will usually incur a fee for the wasted journey.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a huge skip that can be used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These containers are mainly for industrial use but can be used by household clients also. However, you will want plenty of space because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger than the average skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.
As a result of the size, these containers should only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and rubble.
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can normally hire the skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, there is the choice of giving a preferred collection day when making your order.
Alternatively, just tell us when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the following working day.
It can take a little bit longer to pick up your skip over busy times, however we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
If you have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, a mini skip might be the perfect choice. What size is identified as a mini skip is different from business to business, depending on what sizes they offer.
2 cubic yards is probably the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to have a 3 yard container as their smallest option. The cost is dependent on the actual size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for residential jobs such as modest DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Loftus?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you want the skip to be located on land outside of your business or house, you will need to obtain authorisation from your local authority in Loftus, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we will be happy to organise this for you, and so it’s one less point to worry about. The council does charge a fee for your permit, plus you should know before booking that obtaining the licence can often take up to 2 working days.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be in when anyone delivers something to your property. That enables you to make sure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it.
The same thing goes for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip hire company will likely deliver your skip in Loftus. We utilize a network of both regional and nationwide businesses to allow us to provide our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are vetted to guarantee they fulfill the high expectations we require regarding service, price and environmental performance.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
Skips are available in a number of sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is good for small residential projects.
The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great choice for shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more significant waste disposal job to tackle, a builder’s skip might be the most suitable choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name implies, these represent the most popular sizes used by builders for construction waste, like soil and hardcore. However they can just as well be hired for household waste such as old furniture or bathroom suites.
We also offer 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For further details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
How do I hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us if the skip will be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or council property (like the road). After that, select the day you would like the skip to be delivered. Check your order details and make payment using our secure online payment platform. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to Loftus on the day you have selected.
What is the cost of skip hire in Loftus?
Our goal is to offer the most affordable skip hire service in Loftus. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip that you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have a skip placed on the road or other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the extra cost of a skip permit.
What happens to the waste once the skip is picked up?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into the various waste streams, such as wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This ensures that as much of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
