Meltham Skip Hire FAQs
Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we are delivering the skip. Providing we are able to access where you need it positioned, we can manage everything.
When you are not going to be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you place the order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be positioned at a particular part of the property. Alternatively, you might need to make sure the skip doesn’t prevent access to your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, provide the information when ordering, and then we will ensure the directions are passed to the delivery driver.
Do all skips have a drop door?
For anybody who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is designed for disposing of heavy building and demolition materials, as it can be walked in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop door, although these are typically more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are generally low enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to make sure a container which has a drop door is provided.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will make sure your skip is provided when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we are not able to promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
It is important to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will normally incur a charge for the wasted journey.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Meltham?
As we provide a nationwide waste management service, we use an extensive network of verified and approved companies. These can include small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.
Is it ok to pile up waste in my skip?
It is important to not overfill the skip. You should not pass the level load mark that is shown along the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it becomes very hazardous to move. This means that if you overload your skip, you might be asked to take off the surplus waste. No matter how secure you feel the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This can be hazardous and is therefore not allowed.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Meltham?
Normally, it is possible to get the skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But in order to do this, you need to have permission from the local council in Meltham, which is called a skip permit. We will organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for the permit, and it can sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to approve this.
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electronic products such as tumble dryers, TVs, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.

Where will you take the waste from my skip?
The waste in your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer station. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machines and also by hand into numerous waste streams, like metal, paper, hardcore and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to increase the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.
How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are perfect for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and broken baby toys to paving slabs and garden soil. With a total capacity of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you having to make numerous journeys to the local recycling centre.
What is the size of a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most often used for construction projects. There are generally two skip sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which you can use to get rid of large quantities of building and demolition materials, including garden soil, concrete and rock.
Even though they are labelled a builders skip, they can of course be used for a number of other household and business waste disposal jobs.

This can include wood, dirt, concrete, garden trimmings, household furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.
