What different sizes do skips come in?
Skips come in a number of sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is perfect for small domestic jobs.
Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold around 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is an excellent option for shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more significant rubbish disposal task to sort out, a builder’s skip could be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title indicates, they are the most typical sizes hired by builders for construction waste, including clay and stone. But they can equally well be used for household waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We also offer 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
Am I able to throw all kinds of rubbish in my skip?
Before getting a skip, it is essential to ensure that the kind of rubbish you want to dispose of is allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials need to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Waste types you could put in a skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use a skip to dispose of building and demolition waste, including timber, dirt, rubble, metals and concrete.
Some examples of prohibited items include electronic products, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be discarded separately from any general waste.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we deliver the skip. Providing we can access where you want it located, we are able to manage it all.
When you are not likely to be in, simply let us know any relevant delivery instructions when you book your order. For instance, you may prefer the skip to be dropped at a particular area of your property. Or you might want to ensure the skip doesn’t obstruct use of your garage.
Whatever the situation might be, let us know when you place your order, and then we will ensure the instructions are passed to the lorry driver.
Who will deliver my skip?
Since we provide a UK-wide skip service, we utilise an extensive network of verified and approved businesses. These range from small local skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to ensure they meet our high customer service and environmental standards.
How long does it take to get a skip in Pudsey?
If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. In some instances, we can even give you a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed when going through the online order process.
How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact skip delivered by skip companies and is ideal for smaller DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
How much waste can a builders skip hold?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most commonly supplied for construction jobs. There are generally two sizes that can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to dispose of significant amounts of construction and demolition waste materials, including dirt, concrete and bricks.
Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for various other domestic and commercial waste disposal tasks.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Pudsey?
This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if your skip is on private property, such as a drive or within your company premises.
If you have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have the skip on your own land, you will save a few pounds.
How long can I hire the skip for?
You can in most cases keep the skip for as many as 14 days from the delivery date. You can provide a chosen pick up date at the time you place your order. Otherwise, you can tell us after you have finished, and then we will plan the collection. Generally, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a bit longer over busy periods.
How much will skip hire in Pudsey cost?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Pudsey, enter your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display which sizes we offer in your town and how much each option costs to hire. If your skip will be on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are huge industrial size skips used mainly in the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for businesses that generate significant amounts of waste materials.
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in the skip?
Electronic objects like televisions, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and so should not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic goods should be segregated from other waste. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.
What happens to the waste in my skip?
After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste recycling centre either in or local to Pudsey where we will separate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
Can you deliver to other areas in West Yorkshire?
Certainly. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to provide skips to residential and industrial customers across West Yorkshire and anywhere else within the UK.
Is it okay to pile up the waste in my skip?
You must not fill your skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it over the tip of this mark, it means your skip is not safe to move, and you may be asked to take off any extra rubbish before it can be collected.
Is it possible to have a skip which has a drop down door?
Using a skip that has a drop door makes loading rubbish into it a lot easier. This is particularly true with hefty materials like soil and rubble, which can then be loaded into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away large bulky items such as pieces of furniture much easier also.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, however this can sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when making your booking if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.
