Pickering Skip Hire FAQs
Can I load up the skip above level load line?
You should not fill your skip past the level load line. If you load it over the tip of this mark, it means that the skip will not be secure to transport, and you may be asked to remove the excess rubbish prior to it being picked up.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big industrial size skips used primarily in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for organisations that generate significant quantities of waste.
Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste will get separated into a number of waste streams, such as stone, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is regarded as the popular skip that is used across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is fantastic for most building and demolition projects, which is where the name comes from.
The 8 yd builders skip will be the largest size that you can use for heavy waste such as soil, concrete, stone and gravel.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Pickering?
Our goal is to offer the cheapest skip hire service in Pickering. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have the skip situated on the highway or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the added price of a skip permit.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Using a skip with a drop door helps make filling rubbish into it a lot easier. This is particularly the case with hefty materials like garden soil and rubble, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away big bulky items like furniture a lot easier also.
Most skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, however this will sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.
If I require a skip on the road in Pickering, will I need to have a permit?
Usually, it is possible to get the skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But in order to do this, you must have permission from the local council in Pickering, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for your license, and it can sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
What types of waste can I dispose of in a skip?
Prior to ordering a skip, it is important to check that the kind of rubbish you want to get rid of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials must be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types you may throw in a skip include household items like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You may also use your skip to throw out building and demolition rubbish, like bricks, dirt, stone, metals and gravel.
Some examples of prohibited items include things like electronic products, tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and therefore need to be discarded separately from general waste.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are great for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furniture and old toys to paving blocks and concrete. With a total capacity of about 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you having to make several trips to your local recycling centre.
Can you deliver skips across North Yorkshire?
Certainly, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer skips to areas across North Yorkshire, such as Pickering, Stokesley, Haxby and Kirkbymoorside. So regardless of where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be there on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can make sure the lorry has full access and that the skip will be located precisely where you want it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company property, particularly if gates limit access.
On the other hand, if that isn’t possible, you don’t need to worry. Just tell us when making your order, and we will handle the rest.
What skip sizes can you offer?
We are able to provide a full-range of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip great for modest DIY projects and household clearances. A common choice for larger sized projects, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Pickering businesses with a significant amount of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How long can I hire a skip for?
You can normally hire your skip for up to a fortnight from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you will have the option of giving a preferred collection day when making your order.
Alternatively, simply tell us when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It might take a little while longer to pick up your skip over busy times, however we will always endeavour to be there as quickly as possible.
Can I dispose of electronic items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects have to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric items such as cookers, monitors, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.
