Penistone Skip Hire FAQs
Do you deliver to other areas in South Yorkshire?
Certainly. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we are able to offer skips to both household and industrial customers across South Yorkshire and anywhere else in the UK.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Penistone, you will have various options to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for modest home clearances and DIY work.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most common sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also makes them perfect for house clear ups including bulky objects such as furniture and beds.
We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even bigger waste disposal needs. These containers are only suited to lightweight materials, so they cannot be hired to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
For further details about the various sizes available, such as dimensions, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
The regular hire term will be 2 weeks from the date of delivery. Having said that, when you book your skip, you can provide a pick up date that is ideal for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is loaded sooner than expected, let us know, and we will pick it up as soon as possible.
We will usually make collections within 48 hours. However, it is important to remember that this may not be possible at busier periods. Once collected, your skip will be transported to a local waste recycling centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container that can be used to transport significant amounts of waste. Primarily, these type of containers are used for industrial purposes. However, residential customers can also hire them. You should look at the space they take up, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they should only be utilised for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of soil and concrete.

We have designed our online booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first task is to enter your delivery address to view all the different skip sizes we are able to deliver in Penistone.

When will my skip be delivered?
We can in most cases deliver skips to Penistone the next working day when your order is made before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking program gives you a variety of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like your skip to arrive asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact skip available from skip companies and is great for smaller DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
Do all skips have a drop door?
The vast majority of skip sizes can be provided with a drop door, making them easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the container, especially with weighty materials, such as garden soil and bricks, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky items, like furniture.
Where will my waste go when the skip is picked up?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into various waste streams, like timber, metals, plastics, etc. This ensures that as much of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip firm will most likely deliver your skip in Penistone. We employ a network of both regional and national businesses to allow us to offer our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully vetted to make certain they fulfill the high expectations we require regarding customer service, price and environmental performance.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most often supplied for building and demolition jobs. There are generally two different sizes which can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that can be used to get rid of substantial quantities of building and demolition waste, including garden soil, rubble and rock.
Although labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for a number of other household and business waste disposal jobs.
Can I dispose of electronic products in the skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects must be kept separate from general waste to get recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric products like washing machines, televisions, toasters, computers and even hair straighteners.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Penistone?
This will depend on the skip size you require and if you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the cheapest choice. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be at home at the time it is delivered. Then you can ensure that the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip is positioned precisely where you need it. This also applies if you have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly when gates limit access.
On the other hand, when this is not achievable, you do not have to stress. Just let us know when you are placing your order, and we will take care of everything.
Is it okay to stack up waste in my skip?
Unfortunately not. You must only load the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste materials up above this line would make it dangerous to move, and you can be told to get rid of the excess waste before the skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.
If I want a skip on the road in Penistone, will I need to have a permit?
This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if your skip will be on your private property, like a drive or within your business premises.
If you have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know as part of the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place the skip on private land, it will save you some money.
What types of rubbish can you put in a skip?
You are allowed to throw a wide array of rubbish into your skip. This includes wood, ceramic tiles, plastics or bricks from a household clearance. Tree and bush clippings, soil and rock from garden work is allowed also. Worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be thrown in a skip.
There are, however, some items that you are not allowed to put in a skip a result of the possible ecological or health risks they may trigger.
You cannot throw out your refrigerator, printer or old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things incorporate hazardous components in one kind or another. They should be disposed of separately from your normal rubbish.
Should you need hazardous waste removal, we might be able to organise an independent collection for this waste. Feel free to get in touch for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
