Pontefract Skip Hire FAQs

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can in most cases have your skip for as long as 14 days from the date of delivery. You are able to give a preferred pick up date at the time you place your order. Otherwise, you can let us know once you have finished, and we will arrange the collection. Normally, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during busy times.

What waste can I put in a skip?

This is amongst the most frequent questions people have about our service. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you may fill up your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are so many kinds of rubbish that will result from garden projects, building work and house clearances.

Among the most common items that we find in skips include soil, timber, hedge trimmings, cupboards, toilets, and other household objects.

There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to put in your skip. For example, any electrical items (fridges and freezers, televisions or computers for example), tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and getting rid of them has to adhere to an entirely different process to ensure they don’t cause harm to the environment.

How do I order a skip online?

We have built our online booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to enter your postcode to view all the different skip sizes we are able to deliver in Pontefract.

Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Pontefract?

If at all possible, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface. For anybody who is doing a household task, then your driveway is going to be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. However, when neither is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public land, you have got to get a permit from the local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be placed on a street, grass verge or other public property in Pontefract. If this is required, we will request the license to be issued for you. An additional fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.

Will a skip hire company from Pontefract deliver my skip?

To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a number of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we can offer customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.

Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?

No, you don’t need to be at home when we deliver your skip. So long as we are able to gain access to where you need it located, we will take care of it all.

If you are not likely to be in, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For example, you may want the skip to be positioned on a particular side of the property. Or you may need to ensure that the skip does not prevent access to your garage.

Whatever the case may be, let us know when you place your order, and we will make sure your instructions are passed on to the lorry driver.

Where will my waste be taken to when the skip is picked up?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into the various waste streams, like timber, metals, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container that can be used to get rid of huge volumes of waste. In the majority of cases, these containers are used for commercial purposes. Having said that, domestic customers may also hire them. You have to take into account the area they take up, because they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be used for light-weight waste such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and hardcore.

What is the cost of skip hire in Pontefract?

To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Pontefract, insert your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you which skip sizes we offer in your town and how much each one costs to hire. If your skip is going on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.

Do you deliver skips across West Yorkshire?

Absolutely. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we are able to provide skips to both residential and commercial customers across West Yorkshire and anywhere else within the UK.

Is it ok to load the skip above the level load mark?

It is important never to overfill the skip. You can not pass the level load line shown along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it can be very dangerous to transport. Which means that if you overload the skip, you may be required to take off the surplus rubbish. However secure you feel the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This is unsafe and is prohibited.

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact skip available from skip companies and is designed for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some firms offer a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price 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 won’t make a difference.

How fast can you deliver a skip to Pontefract?

We can usually supply skips to Pontefract the next working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking platform will give you a range of delivery dates to select from. So whether you want a skip to arrive asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.

Can I get a skip that has a drop down door?

Getting a skip that has a drop door helps make filling waste into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste materials like dirt and rubble, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading large bulky objects like household furniture much easier as well.

The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, although this may sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when you place your booking if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most frequently supplied for construction jobs. There are usually two different skip sizes that may be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to dispose of significant quantities of construction and demolition waste, such as garden soil, rubble and rock.

Although branded a builders skip, these can be used for a number of other domestic and industrial waste disposal jobs.

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

Unfortunately this is not allowed, because electronic products such as old televisions, fridges, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly manner.

What size skips do you deliver?

Skips are offered in a number of different sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small residential projects.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold around 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a great choice for garden clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more substantial waste disposal task to deal with, a builder’s skip might be the best choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name implies, these are the most common sizes used by builders for construction waste, including clay and stone. But they can just as well be hired for domestic waste such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also offer 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
