Richmond (Yorkshire) Skip Hire FAQs

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a variety of sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small residential jobs.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a good choice for garden clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to sort out, a builder’s skip might be the best option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label indicates, these represent the most typical sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, like soil and hardcore. However they can equally well be hired for domestic waste such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also provide 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Do all skips have a drop door?

Nearly all skip sizes can be supplied with a drop down door, which makes them much easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.

A skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the container, especially with weighty materials, such as garden soil and bricks, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky items, such as furniture.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Richmond?

This is determined by the size you will need and if you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced choice. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used primarily in business settings.

What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?

A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a large container that can be used to get rid of large quantities of waste. These bins are primarily for business use but can be hired by residential clients too. However, you will require plenty of room since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger in comparison to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.

As a result of the size, RORO containers can only be used for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and bricks.

Will a skip hire company from Richmond deliver my skip?

A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Richmond. We make use of a network of both local and national businesses to allow us to provide our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are comprehensively assessed to guarantee they meet the high expectations we require with regards to customer service, price and environmental performance.

What size is a builders skip?

As the name suggests, a builders skip means the size of skip most commonly used for building and demolition projects. There are typically two skip sizes that can be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to dispose of significant amounts of building and demolition materials, like dirt, rubble and bricks.

Although branded a builder’s skip, they can be used for multiple other residential and business waste disposal tasks.

Am I allowed to pile up the waste in my skip?

It is essential to never overload the skip. You can not pass the level load mark indicated along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it will become very hazardous to move. Which means that if you overfill the skip, you could be required to take away the excess waste. Regardless of how secure you believe the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This is unsafe and is prohibited.

Am I able to throw electronic items in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects must be kept separate from general waste to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This includes all electric powered items like cookers, televisions, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.

What will happen to the waste?

After you have finished filling your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility either in or local to Richmond where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

If I need a skip on the road in Richmond, will I need to get a permit?

This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a permit if it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit when your skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or inside your company premises.

If you need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, so we can make the required arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate your skip on private land, it will save you some money.

How do I hire a skip online?

We have built our booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. Step one is to enter your delivery address to check out the range of skip sizes we can deliver in Richmond. Select the best size to meet your needs and provide the details of where and when you want the skip to be delivered. After that you can make payment through the secure payment system, and we will send you an email to confirm the transaction once your booking is done!

When will the skip be delivered to me?

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

Although we can’t guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

It is important to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted journey.

How long can I keep a skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, that provides you with sufficient time to fill up the skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, in the event you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just tell us once you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.

What waste materials am I allowed to put in a skip?

This is amongst the most frequent questions people have about hiring a skip. What is important to remember is that you can fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of waste that could come from garden work, building work and home clearances.

Some of the most frequent things which we pick up in our skips include dirt, timber, tree trimmings, cabinets, sinks, as well as other household products.

There are some materials that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This includes any electronic goods (refrigerators, TVs and cookers for example), old tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all deemed hazardous waste, and getting rid of them has to adhere to a completely different procedure to make sure they do not cause damage to the environment.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the most compact skip delivered by skip companies and is ideal for small DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip companies will offer a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?

No, you don’t need to be at home when we deliver your skip. Providing we can gain access to the place you need it delivered, we will take care of everything.

For those who are not going to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when booking your order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be dropped at a particular area of your drive. Alternatively, you might need to be sure that the skip does not prevent use of your garage.

Whatever the situation may be, provide the information when ordering, and then we will make sure the directions will be passed to the lorry driver.
