Mirfield Skip Hire FAQs
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Mirfield?
This will depend on the skip size you need and whether you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the least expensive option. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.

What will happen to the rubbish?
The materials in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station. Here the contents will be sorted by machinery and by hand into various waste materials, including metal, paper, hardcore and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste ending up in landfill.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
As the name suggests, a builders skip is the size of skip most often hired for construction work. There are generally two sizes that may be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that can be used to dispose of substantial volumes of construction and demolition waste materials, like earth, concrete and bricks.
Even though they are labelled a builders skip, these can be used for many other domestic and business waste disposal tasks.
What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Mirfield?
Hiring a skip shouldn’t be hard. That is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, type in your postcode to see all the different skips we can deliver to Mirfield. Choose which size you want to hire, and confirm if it will be dropped on your own property. Enter your information and make payment using our secure online payment platform.
Once your order is done, 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.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. In some cases, we can even give you a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed when going through the order process.
Am I allowed to throw away electrical items in the skip?
Electrical objects like television sets, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste and therefore can not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered items have to be separated from other waste. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
Will my skip come with a drop door?
In general, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop down door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip that has a drop door is primarily beneficial when choosing a big builder’s skip, as it allows you to wheelbarrow waste materials directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, because they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it unsafe to move, and you will then be asked to remove any rubbish higher than the level load line. This also means you are unable to use sheets of timber, doors or any other object, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to ensure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please be sure to hire the appropriate sized skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you’re unsure which size you require. We would be glad to help.
Will a Mirfield skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip firm will most likely deliver your skip in Mirfield. We work with a network of both local and national companies to enable us to offer our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These firms are fully assessed to make certain they meet the high standards we demand in terms of customer service, price and environmental performance.
What things can I put in my skip?
It is possible to fill the skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly generated from loft clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, top soil, concrete, garden trimmings, furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip will depend on the size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight limit. For example, in the event that you are using the skip for heavy building wastes including concrete or soil, the largest size you would be able to get is the 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be disposed of in a skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
Will you deliver to other areas in West Yorkshire?
Of course, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skips to areas across West Yorkshire, including Mirfield, South Elmsall, Silsden and Bingley. So no matter where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Mirfield, you have various sizes to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for small house clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most popular sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also means they are great for house tidy ups involving bulky items like household furniture and beds.
We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for anyone with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they cannot be hired to get rid of soil or concrete.
For further information regarding the different skip sizes available, such as measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Mirfield?
Generally, it will be possible to get the skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But in order to do this, you need to have permission from the local authority in Mirfield, which is known as a skip permit. We can organise this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for this permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t need to be at your property when your skip is being delivered, however it does help. Being home whenever the skip arrives means you can ensure the lorry can be given complete access and that the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is being hired to your company premises, we will appreciate your help during delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
However, when you can’t be around during the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to tell us when you place the order, and then we will arrange things from there.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can normally keep the skip for up to a fortnight from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, you have the choice of offering a preferred collection time when you place your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in the majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It could take a little longer to collect your skip over busy times, however we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.
How large is the mini skip?
If you have a small quantity of waste to dispose of, a mini skip could be the best solution. What size is described as a mini skip is different from company to company, based on what sizes they offer.
2 cubic yards is the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard skip for their smallest option. The cost is dependent on the particular size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for domestic tasks like modest DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to transport significant quantities of waste. Primarily, these type of skips are used for commercial uses. Having said that, domestic clients can also hire them. You should consider the area they will take up, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be utilised for light waste such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and hardcore.
