For more info about our choice of skips, such as dimensions and the waste materials they can be used for, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large industrial scale skips that are used predominantly within the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for organisations that generate large amounts of waste materials.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is delivered?
You don’t have to be at home when your skip is being delivered, but it can help. Being home whenever the skip is due to be delivered means that you can ensure the lorry driver can be given full access and that your skip will be located exactly where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is hired to your business property, we will appreciate your support during delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, when you can’t be around for delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you place the order, and then we will organise things from there.
Will a skip hire company from Otley deliver my skip?
A local skip hire firm will likely deliver your skip in Otley. We make use of a network of both local and nationwide providers to allow us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are fully assessed to make certain they satisfy the high expectations we demand regarding service, price and environmental performance.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
Virtually all containers can be provided with a drop down door, making them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the container, particularly with weighty materials, such as soil and concrete, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load big and bulky items, like household furniture.
Can you deliver to other areas in West Yorkshire?
We provide a UK wide skip hire service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Otley, Pontefract, Halifax, Bradford or another site in West Yorkshire, we can assist.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
Before getting a skip, you must ensure that the kind of rubbish you wish to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types you can put in a skip include household goods like furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use your skip to dispose of building and demolition rubbish, such as bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and gravel.
Examples of restricted items include electronic goods, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently need to be discarded separately from your general rubbish.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Otley?
Usually, it is possible to get a skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But in order to do this, you must get approval from the local authority in Otley, which is known as a skip permit. We can organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for the permit, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
After you have finished filling your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Otley where we will separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will make sure your skip is provided on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You will need to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will most likely incur a charge for the wasted journey.
How long can I hire the skip for?
Generally, you can have your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t need to hurry through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is full ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.
What is the cost of skip hire in Otley?
Our goal is to offer the lowest priced skip hire service in Otley. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have a skip located on the highway or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the additional price of a skip permit.
Can I dispose of electrical products in the skip?
No, you cannot throw old or unwanted electronic waste products in a skip. This includes things like computers, microwaves, dishwashers, freezers and televisions. These items can’t be discarded in a skip because they can have dangerous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.
Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?
You must not fill your skip beyond the level load mark. If you fill it over the tip of this level, it means your skip is not secure to transport, and you may be asked to take off any extra rubbish before it can be picked up.
What is classed as being a builders skip?
The builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the largest containers that can be used to dispose of weighty building and construction waste such as rock, bricks, rubble or clay.
The builder’s skip is great for a variety of projects. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing out your garage, these large containers tend to be the most cost-effective option available.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are fantastic for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furnishings and old baby toys to paving blocks and soil. Having a capacity of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make multiple journeys to your local recycling centre.
