Below are a few of the frequently asked questions we get regarding our skip hire service.
Norton-on-Derwent Skip Hire FAQs
Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects must be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electronic products such as tumble dryers, TVs, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.
Is it possible to have a skip with a drop door?
Getting a skip that has a drop door helps make filling waste into the skip so much easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste like dirt and rubble, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make throwing away big bulky objects such as furniture much easier also.
The majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, but this can sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.
What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?
This is among the most common questions people have about our service. What is important to remember is that you can fill up your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of waste that can come from garden projects, building work and home clearances.
Among the most typical things which we see in skips include dirt, wood, bush trimmings, kitchen cabinets, baths, and other household objects.
However, there are some items that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. For example, any electrical goods (fridge freezers, televisions and washing machines for example), old car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. These are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and getting rid of them needs to comply with an entirely different procedure to ensure they do not cause damage to the environment.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Norton-on-Derwent, you will have multiple options to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for small domestic clearances and DIY jobs.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also makes them great for house clearances including bulky objects like pieces of furniture and beds.
We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These containers are only suitable for lightweight waste, so they can’t be used to dispose of soil or rubble.
For more information about the various skip sizes offered, such as measurements, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
The materials in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer facility. Here the contents will be separated by machinery and by hand into different waste streams, such as metal, plastics, rubble and timber. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.
Do you deliver skips across North Yorkshire?
As well as delivering skips to Norton-on-Derwent, we also deliver to other towns and villages within North Yorkshire. With the help of our network of regional and national waste management businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Norton-on-Derwent, Leyburn or Middlesbrough, we have got it covered.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be home when we are delivering the skip. Providing we are able to access where you need it delivered, we are able to manage it all.
When you will not be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For example, you might need the skip to be dropped at a particular side of the property. Or you may want to ensure that the skip does not obstruct entry to your garage.
No matter what the case may be, provide the details when you place your order, and we will make sure your instructions will be passed to the lorry driver.
How much will skip hire in Norton-on-Derwent cost?
The price of getting a skip in Norton-on-Derwent is determined by the size of skip you want. The least expensive option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you need a bigger skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also be more if you need to have a skip on the road, since you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
How quickly can you deliver a skip in Norton-on-Derwent?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a day that best suits you. We can normally give you a next day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip on private property, as to be on public property (for example a highway), you will have to get a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of many factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it to be delivered in a AM or PM slot.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a large skip that is used to get rid of large quantities of waste. These bins are predominantly for commercial use but can be hired by household customers also. However, you will need plenty of room because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger when compared to the typical skip you will likely see on the side of the road.
As a result of the size, these skips should only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and bricks.
What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Norton-on-Derwent?
Ordering a skip in Norton-on-Derwent through us is incredibly straightforward. Pick the skip size you require and enter a few details about where and when you would like the skip delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Norton-on-Derwent?
In most cases, it will be possible to have your skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to do this, you have got to get consent from your local council in Norton-on-Derwent, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council do charge a fee for the license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.
Is it ok to load up the skip above the side?
It is very important to not overload a skip, as you run the risk of being told to take off excess waste prior to it being picked up. No matter what size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, as moving an overloaded skip can be dangerous, as waste could drop and result in injury or damage to other people.
To avoid this issue, please be sure you hire a skip size suited to your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full but you have additional waste to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Norton-on-Derwent?
We use a large network of both local and national skip hire businesses to supply skips to our customers in Norton-on-Derwent and the rest of the country. Each of our partner skip companies are approved and tested to guarantee they satisfy our expectations for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is probably the most frequent skip which is used across the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is fantastic for most building and demolition work, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip is the biggest option that you can use for hefty materials such as soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can usually have the skip for as long as 2 weeks from your date of delivery. You may provide a preferred collection day when you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can let us know after you have finished, and then we will organise the collection. Usually, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during busy times.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size delivered by skip firms and is good for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip firms will provide a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
