Normanton Skip Hire FAQs
Can you deliver skips across West Yorkshire?
As well as delivering skips and containers to Normanton, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across West Yorkshire. With the help of a network of regional and national skip hire and recycling companies, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Normanton, Pudsey or Leeds, we have got it covered.
What size skips can you provide?
Skips are offered in a variety of sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is good for small residential projects.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a good choice for loft clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
When you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to handle, a builder’s skip might be the best option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label indicates, these are the most common sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, such as clay and stone. However they can just as well be hired for domestic waste such as old furniture or kitchen units.
We also offer 10-16 cubic yard bins and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more information about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
Using a skip that has a drop down door helps make filling waste into the skip so much easier. This is especially true with heavy materials like soil and concrete, which can then be walked directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of big bulky items like pieces of furniture easier too.
Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, however this will sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when making your order if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are fantastic for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and broken toys to paving blocks and garden soil. With a capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you having to make multiple visits to your local recycling centre.
Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Normanton?
Preferably, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface. For anybody who is carrying out a domestic project, then a drive is going to be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. Having said that, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public property, you need to have a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be dropped on the street, grass verge or other public property in Normanton. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be issued for you. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can in most cases have a skip for as many as 2 weeks from your date of delivery. You are able to give a preferred collection day at the time you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can let us know once you have finished with the skip, and then we will plan the collection. In most cases, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer over busy times.
Is it ok to fill up the skip above the level load line?
It is vital never to overfill a skip. You can not pass the level load mark indicated along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it will become very dangerous to move. Which means that when you overfill your skip, you may be asked to remove the surplus waste. Regardless of how secure you believe the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be unsafe and is prohibited.
Can I get rid of electronic products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects need to be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric powered goods including tumble dryers, monitors, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
The roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a substantial skip used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are mainly for business use but can be hired by residential clients too. Having said that, you need lots of space since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger compared to the typical skip you will likely see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, roro containers should only be provided for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suited to getting rid of concrete and bricks.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Normanton?
The cost of hiring a skip in Normanton will depend on the size of skip you need. The cheapest skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and clearances. If you want a larger skip, like an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also be more if you need to have the skip positioned on the highway, as you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The term builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The term comes from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are great for a multitude of domestic and business jobs. They are the largest skip sizes that you can use for heavy builders waste including soil, rubble and gravel.
Where does my waste go once the skip is picked up?
After you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre in or local to Normanton where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
Am I allowed to dispose of all sorts of waste in the skip?
You can fill your skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly produced from loft clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, garden soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in your skip will depend on the size you have ordered, because there is a weight limit. For instance, if you are using your skip for heavy construction wastes such as rubble or garden soil, the maximum size you would be able to use is the 8 yard skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in your skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are considered hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.
How long does it take to get a skip in Normanton?
We can in most cases supply skips to Normanton the next working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This is applicable to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking platform offers you a range of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you would like the skip delivered asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be at home on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure the lorry has total access and that the skip is situated precisely where you need it. The same applies when you have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates restrict access.
However, when this isn’t feasible, you do not have to worry. Just let us know when you are placing your booking, and we will take care of the rest.
