Ossett Skip Hire FAQs
Can you deliver skips across West Yorkshire?
Of course, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skips to locations across West Yorkshire, including Ossett, Bradford, Dewsbury and Pontefract. So regardless of where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Ossett?
Hiring a skip in Ossett with us is incredibly straightforward. Choose the skip size you will need and enter a few details about when and where you want your skip to be delivered. You then pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and arrange to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
How long can I hire a skip for?
You can normally have a skip for up to 2 weeks from your date of delivery. It is possible to provide a preferred collection date at the time you place your order. Alternatively, you can let us know once you have finished with the skip, and we will arrange the collection. Generally, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer over busy times.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big industrial scale skips that are used primarily in the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for organisations that generate large volumes of waste materials.
Can I throw all types of waste in my skip?
Prior to ordering your skip, it is important to check that the kind of waste you wish to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types you may throw in your skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use a skip to dispose of building and demolition rubbish, including timber, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Examples of forbidden items include things like electronic products, tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from any general waste.
Will a skip hire company from Ossett deliver my skip?
To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work with a wide range of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to offer customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop door?
For anyone who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is perfect for getting rid of hefty building and demolition rubbish, as it can be pushed in the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop-down door, though they are more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are generally low enough on 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 ordering. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip with a drop door is delivered.
What is the cost of skip hire in Ossett?
The price of hiring a skip in Ossett is determined by the size of skip you need. The least expensive option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you require a bigger skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also be more if you want to have the skip on the road, because you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Ossett, you will have multiple sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, also known as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for modest home clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also means they are suitable for household tidy ups including large items such as household furniture and beds.
We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for those with even larger waste disposal requirements. These sizes are only appropriate for light waste, so they cannot be used to dispose of soil or stone.
For further information about the various skip sizes offered, including dimensions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
What happens to the rubbish when the skip is picked up?
The contents of the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer facility. Here the waste will be segregated by machinery and by hand into various waste materials, like metal, paper, rubble and wood. Processing the waste in this manner helps to maximise the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste ending up in landfill.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip provided by skip companies and is great for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip firms offer you a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, as electrical items such as old TVs, cookers, computers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly fashion.
Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?
You don’t need to be at your property when your skip will be delivered, but it does help. Being there when your skip is due for delivery means you can make sure the delivery driver can be given full access and that the skip is placed exactly where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is being delivered to business property, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
However, for those who can’t be around for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask you to let us know when you place the order, and we will arrange things from there.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Ossett?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need the skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or house, you must obtain authorisation from the local council in Ossett, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we will gladly organise this for you, therefore it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the skip license, plus you should know before ordering that obtaining the permit can often take up to 2 working days.
How soon can you deliver a skip in Ossett?
When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the following day. Sometimes, we can even give you a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed as part of the online order process.
Can I fill the skip higher than the level load mark?
No. You can only fill up your skip up to the level load line. Piling waste materials up above this line will make it dangerous to move, and you might be asked to remove the excess waste before your skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or any other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.
What is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is probably the most frequent skip which is hired in the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is perfect for most building tasks, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 yd builders skip will be the largest size which you can use for hefty waste materials including dirt, concrete, bricks and rubble.
