Malton Skip Hire FAQs
Is it ok to fill up the skip above the level load line?
Unfortunately not. You are only allowed to fill the skip up to the level load line. Piling waste up above this line will make it dangerous to move, and you may be told to take away the surplus waste before your skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is the most frequent skip hired throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is perfect for most building and demolition projects, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 yd builder’s skip is the largest option that you can use for heavy waste such as dirt, concrete, rock and rubble.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest skip offered by skip companies and is ideal for small DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip firms offer you a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?
Before getting your skip, you must ensure that the kind of rubbish you wish to dispose of is allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you can throw in a skip include home goods like furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use your skip to throw out building and construction rubbish, like wood, dirt, stone, metals and gravel.
Some examples of prohibited items include electrical goods, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be discarded separately from general waste.
When will my skip be delivered?
If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. Sometimes, we can even give you a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed during the online order process.
What skip sizes do you provide?
We supply a full range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for modest DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A popular option for more substantial projects, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Malton firms with a large quantity of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Where will my rubbish go once the skip is picked up?
When you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre in or local to Malton where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
Am I allowed to put electrical products in my skip?
No, you can not throw old or broken electronic waste items in a skip. This can include things like computers, hobs, tumble dryers, fridges and televisions. Electronic products can’t be disposed of in a skip as they can contain hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Malton?
In the vast majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or residence, you have got to receive authorisation from the local authority in Malton, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we will be happy to arrange this for you, therefore it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the skip license, plus you should be aware before booking that securing the permit can often take up to 2 working days.
What size skips will have a drop door?
Generally, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop-down door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip that has a drop door is primarily useful if choosing a big builder’s skip, as it allows you to wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, since they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t have to be at your property when the skip is going to be delivered, however it does help. Being in when the skip is delivered means that you can make sure the lorry is given full access and that your skip will be dropped precisely where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is being hired to your company property, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, if you can’t be available for delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place your order, and then we will organise things from there.
Will you deliver to other areas in North Yorkshire?
Of course, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skip sizes to areas throughout North Yorkshire, such as Malton, Thirsk, Kirkbymoorside and Thornaby-on-Tees. So no matter where you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Malton?
The price of hiring a skip in Malton depends on the size of skip you want. The cheapest skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also increase if you need to have your skip on the road, because you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
The standard hire period will be a fortnight from your delivery date. However, at the time you book the skip, you can provide a pick up date that is perfect for you. Of course, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is fully loaded sooner than anticipated, let us know, and we will pick it up as soon as possible.
We can usually be out to get your skip within 48 hours. However, it is important to understand that this is not always the case during busy periods. Once collected, the skip will be transported to your local waste transfer facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge skip that can be used to dispose of large quantities of rubbish. These containers are mainly for industrial use but can be hired by residential customers as well. However, you should have lots of room because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger in comparison to the average skip you will see on the roadside.
Due to the size, roll-on roll-off containers can only be hired for light-weight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and bricks.
