Rawmarsh Skip Hire FAQs

Am I allowed to throw electrical products in my skip?

I’m afraid not, because electronic products including old televisions, cookers, printers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects must be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly way.

How do you hire a skip in Rawmarsh?

We have developed our online booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to enter your delivery address to see all the different skip sizes we can supply in Rawmarsh. Select the best size to meet your needs and enter the details of when and where you would like the skip delivered. You then make payment with our secure payment system, and we will send you an email to confirm your order as soon as your booking is complete!

Is it ok to fill up my skip higher than the level load line?

I’m afraid not. You can only pack the skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste up over this line will make it dangerous to transport, and you could be told to get rid of the extra waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or any other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will make sure your skip will be provided when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.

Although we cannot promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You have to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will normally incur a charge for the wasted journey.

What size is a roll-on roll-off container?

The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge container that is used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These containers are predominantly for commercial use but can be used by domestic clients too. Having said that, you will want a good amount of room since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger when compared to the average skip you will see on the roadside.

Due to the size, roro skips should only be hired for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, so they are not suitable for disposing of soil and bricks.

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

As the name indicates, a builders skip means the size of skip most commonly used for building and demolition jobs. There are generally two sizes which can be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to dispose of large amounts of building and demolition waste, such as garden soil, rubble and bricks.

Even though they are labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for various other household and commercial waste disposal tasks.

Is it possible to have a skip with a drop down door?

If you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is perfect for disposing of hefty building and demolition waste materials, as it can be walked in the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop down door, though these are generally more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically small enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you want a drop door for your job, please let us know when placing your order. We will do our utmost to ensure a container which has a drop door is provided.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are perfect for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and old baby toys to paving blocks and garden soil. Having a capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you having to make several visits to your local recycling centre.

This depends upon the skip size you want and if you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the cheapest option. The most costly and largest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in business settings.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

The standard hire term will be two weeks from the date of delivery. However, at the time you order your skip, you can choose a pick up date that is ideal for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is fully loaded earlier than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it removed as quickly as possible.

We can usually be out to get your skip within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to understand that this may not be possible at busy periods. Once collected, your skip will be transported to your local waste recycling facility, where it will be processed and sorted.

What skip sizes can you supply?

Skips are offered in a variety of sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is ideal for small household jobs.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a good choice for loft clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant waste disposal job to sort out, a builder’s skip might be the best choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name implies, these are the most typical sizes ordered by builders for building waste, including soil and stone. But they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also deliver 10-16 yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more information about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?

No, you do not need to be home when we are delivering the skip. As long as we are able to gain access to the place you need it delivered, we will manage everything.

If you are not going to be in, just let us have any relevant delivery instructions when placing your order. For example, you might need the skip to be positioned at a particular part of your property. Alternatively, you might want to be sure that the skip does not prevent entry to your garage.

Whatever the situation might be, simply let us know when you place your order, and then we will ensure the instructions are passed to the delivery driver.

Will a skip hire company from Rawmarsh deliver my skip?

To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work in partnership with a wide range of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to make sure we can offer customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.

What kinds of waste am I allowed to throw in a skip?

It is possible to put a variety of rubbish into the skip. This can include wood, ceramic tiles, plastics or rubble from a property clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, top soil and rock from garden jobs are permitted too. Units from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be thrown in the skip.

There are, however, a few things that can’t be put in a skip due to the potential environment or health risk they may 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. Each of these things consist of hazardous components in one form or another. They must be disposed of separately from general rubbish.

Should you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to organise an independent collection for this material. Feel free to email for more information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Rawmarsh?

Ideally, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface area. When you are doing a domestic job, then the driveway is going to be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. However, if neither is available, the road or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public land, you will have to obtain a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be dropped on the street, grass verge or other public property in Rawmarsh. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be issued for you. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

What happens to the rubbish?

The items in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling facility. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machines and also by hand into numerous waste materials, such as metal, plastics, rubble and wood. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.

Other areas covered include Goldthorpe, Wath upon Dearne, Penistone, Bolton Upon Dearne, Barnsley, Sheffield, Rotherham and Worsbrough.
