How do I order a skip online?
Ordering a skip shouldn’t be difficult. This is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, enter your delivery postcode to see all the different skips we can deliver to Middleham. Pick the size you wish to order, and confirm whether it is going to be dropped on private property. Enter in your details and make payment using our secure payment platform.
After your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with all of your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot dispose of old electrical waste products in your skip. This includes things like laptops, hobs, washing machines, fridges and televisions. Electronic objects can’t be disposed of in your skip as they can have hazardous materials and components.
Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Middleham, you will have various sizes to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is great for small home clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most popular sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also makes them great for house clear ups involving bulky items such as furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only suited to lightweight materials, so they can’t be used to get rid of garden soil or concrete.
For more information about the different sizes available, including proportions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?
Having a skip with a drop down door makes loading rubbish into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly true with hefty waste materials such as garden soil or concrete, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading big bulky objects like household furniture easier also.
Most skip containers can be provided with a drop door, although this may sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not need to be home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we can gain access to where you want it located, we can manage everything.
In the event you will not be at home, simply let us know any relevant delivery instructions when booking the order. For instance, you might want the skip to be positioned at a particular part of your property. Alternatively, you might need to make sure the skip does not prevent entry to your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, provide the information when you place your order, and we will ensure the directions are passed on to the lorry driver.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
A builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These will be the biggest containers that can be hired to get rid of heavy building waste such as stone, bricks, gravel or clay.
The builders skip is ideal for a variety of tasks. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out the loft, these big skips are usually the most cost-effective option available.
Am I allowed to fill the skip above the level load line?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it unsafe to move, and you will then have to remove any materials over the level load mark. This means you are unable to use sheets of timber, doors or any other object, since this will increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty to ensure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure you choose the appropriate size of skip for your requirements and get in touch if you are unsure which size is best. We would be pleased to help.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Middleham?
In most situations, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you want your skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or residence, you will have to get authorisation from your local council in Middleham, which is called a permit. If necessary, we will be glad to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to think about. The council will charge a fee for your skip license, plus you should know before booking that securing the permit will often take up to 2 working days.
How big is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are fantastic for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furnishings and old toys to paving slabs and rubble. Having a capacity of approximately 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make multiple visits to your local recycling centre.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into various waste materials, like timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What can I put in my skip?
You are allowed to load your skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from home clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include wood, top soil, bricks, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you throw in the skip will depend on the skip size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, in the event that you will be using your skip for heavy building waste like stone or dirt, the largest size you can use is an 8 yard skip.
Some materials should not be discarded in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.
Will you deliver to other areas in North Yorkshire?
In addition to delivering skips to Middleham, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within North Yorkshire. Through our network of regional and national skip businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering in Middleham, Middlesbrough or Haxby, we have got it covered.
How long can I keep a skip for?
Our regular hire time frame is 2 weeks from the delivery date. Having said that, at the time you book your skip, you can provide a pick up date that is ideal for you. Of course, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is loaded earlier than anticipated, contact us, and we will get it collected at the earliest opportunity.
We will usually make collections within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to remember that this may not be possible at busier periods. Once collected, the skip will be taken to your local waste recycling station, where it will be processed and sorted.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the very next day.
Although we cannot guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You have to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will usually incur a fee for the wasted trip.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you run a company in Middleham and wish to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container could be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that can be hired.
As the name suggests, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike standard skips, which are picked up by using chains.
What is the cost of skip hire in Middleham?
This is determined by the size you will need and whether you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced option. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in business settings.
