Mexborough Skip Hire FAQs

What different sizes do skips come in?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Mexborough, you have various sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest home clearances and DIY work.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most popular sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also makes them perfect for household tidy ups including large objects like household furniture and beds.

We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they can’t be used to get rid of soil or concrete.

To get more details about the various capacities offered, such as measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?

As the name indicates, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most frequently supplied for construction and demolition jobs. There are usually two different skip sizes that may be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers which you can use to dispose of large quantities of construction and demolition waste materials, including garden soil, rubble and stone.

Although they are labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for multiple other household and commercial waste disposal jobs.

Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Mexborough?

In most cases, it is possible to get a skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to get this done, you need to have approval from your local authority in Mexborough, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to organise this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for this license, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to approve this.

Am I allowed to load my skip above the top?

Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will probably be asked to empty any contents over the level load mark. This also means that you cannot make use of sheets of timber, doors or another item, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal obligation to make sure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.

Please be sure to select the correct size of skip for your requirements and get in touch if you are unsure which size you need. We will be glad to help.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in the skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products must be kept separate from general waste to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This can include all electric items such as washing machines, monitors, toasters, laptops and even hair straighteners.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, that will provide you with plenty of time to fill up your skip. However, if you need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Naturally, if you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.

What happens to the waste once the skip is picked up?

Once you have finished filling your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling centre either in or local to Mexborough where we will separate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

What size is a roll-on roll-off container?

If you manage a company in Mexborough and want to get rid of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers on the market.

As the name suggests, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike normal skips, which are lifted using chains.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Mexborough?

To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Mexborough, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you the skip sizes we offer in your area and how much each option will cost you to order. If the skip will be on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small containers are great for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them ideal for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furniture and broken baby toys to paving slabs and rubble. Having a capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make numerous trips to the local recycling centre.

What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?

This is among the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. The main thing to keep in mind is that you can fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are so many types of waste that may result from garden work, construction work and house clearances.

Some of the most typical things which we pick up in skips include dirt, wood, hedge trimmings, cabinets, bathroom suites, as well as other household items.

There are also some items that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. For example, any electronic goods (dishwashers, TVs or washing machines for example), car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. These are all considered hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them has to follow a completely different procedure to ensure they do not result in harm to the environment.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Mexborough?

Since we offer a UK-wide skip service, we use a diverse network of verified companies. These include small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental expectations.

Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?

It is usually a good idea to be in when anybody delivers anything to your home. That enables you to ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed exactly where you want it.

The same applies for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.

However, if it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.

How do you order a skip online?

This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us if the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on council property (like the street). After that, pick the day you want your skip to get delivered. Check your order and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. That is it! We will deliver your skip to Mexborough on the date you have selected.

Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?

If you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is designed for disposing of hefty building and construction waste, as it can be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop-down door, however these are generally more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you want a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our best to make sure a container with a drop door is supplied.

Do you deliver to other areas in South Yorkshire?

Certainly, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skip sizes to areas throughout South Yorkshire, such as Mexborough, Doncaster, Conisbrough and Goldthorpe. So regardless of where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

How quick can you deliver a skip in Mexborough?

When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. In some instances, we can even give you a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days are confirmed as part of the online order process.

Other areas covered include Doncaster, Conisbrough, Goldthorpe, Rawmarsh, Wombwell, Bolton Upon Dearne, Thurnscoe and Penistone.
