Pocklington Skip Hire FAQs

How long can I keep a skip for?

Generally, you can have the skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you don’t have to rush through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

You don’t have to be home when your skip is being delivered, however it does help. Being there when your skip is due for delivery means that you can ensure the lorry driver can be given complete access and that the skip will be placed exactly where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is delivered to your company premises, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.

Even so, in the event you can’t be around during delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place your order, and then we will organise everything from there.

How do I order a skip in Pocklington?

You can then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered on the date selected.

When will my skip be delivered?

When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the very next day. In some instances, we can even provide a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed as part of the online order process.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in the skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products have to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This can include all electric products such as tumble dryers, televisions, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.

What kinds of rubbish can you dispose of in a skip?

You are allowed to put a wide array of rubbish in the skip. This includes wood, bathroom tiles, metal or bricks from a house clearance. Plant and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden tasks are permitted as well. Worktops and units from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be thrown in your skip.

However, there are some things that you are not allowed to put in a skip a result of the possible ecological or health risk they might trigger.

You are unable to throw out your refrigerator, computer or your old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items consist of hazardous materials in one form or another. They need to be discarded separately from your normal rubbish.

If you need hazardous waste removal, we might be able to schedule an independent collection for this waste. Please contact us for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

Am I allowed to load the skip above level load mark?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it unsafe to transport, and you will be asked to remove any items higher than the level load line. This also means that you cannot make use of sheets of wood, doors or another item, as this will increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty to make sure that bins aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.

Please be sure you choose the correct size of skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you are unsure which size is best. We would be pleased to help.

Do you deliver to other areas in East Riding of Yorkshire?

As well as delivering skips to Pocklington, we also deliver to other towns and villages across East Riding of Yorkshire. Through our network of local and national skip hire businesses, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to Pocklington, Hessle or Bridlington, we have got you covered.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Pocklington?

This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a permit when it is placed on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if your skip is on your private property, like a drive or on your company premises.

If you have to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, and we can make the required arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can place your skip on private land, it will save you a few pounds.

We work with a network of both regional and nationwide companies to allow us to offer our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK.

What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are big commercial scale skips that are used predominantly in the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for organisations that generate significant volumes of waste.

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most frequently supplied for building and construction projects. There are usually two skip sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which can be used to dispose of large volumes of construction and demolition waste materials, such as earth, concrete and stone.

Although branded a builders skip, these can of course be used for various other household and industrial waste disposal jobs.

Can I get a skip that has a drop door?

When you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is designed for disposing of heavy building and construction waste materials, as it can be walked in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop door, although these are generally less common. This is because these sizes are typically low enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip which has a drop door is provided.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a number of sizes to match different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small domestic projects.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold roughly 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a fantastic choice for loft clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to sort out, the builder’s skip could be the best option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name indicates, they are the most common sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, like soil and stone. But they can just as well be used for domestic waste such as broken furniture or kitchen units.

We also supply 10-16 yard skips and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For more details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Where does my rubbish be taken to once the skip is collected?

The contents of your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer station. Here the waste will be segregated by machines and also by hand into numerous waste materials, including metal, plastics, rubble and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to increase the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

If you are looking for a low cost skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to take on numerous jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be placed on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.

Although most often hired by residential customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.

Other areas covered include Hessle, Bridlington, Goole, Cottingham, South Cave, Beverley, Driffield and Market Weighton.
