Ripon Skip Hire FAQs
Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Ripon?
Preferably, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface area. When you are carrying out a residential task, then your drive is going to be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public property, you will need to have a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be dropped on the street, grass verge or any other public property in Ripon. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be granted for you. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
This site offers a complete variety of skip sizes to domestic and business customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the various skip sizes on offer, with a rough guide to how much waste each size is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags

For more information about our selection of skips, including measurements plus the waste materials they can be used for, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can generally keep the skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of offering a preferred collection time when you make your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you have finished with your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the following working day.
It can take a little longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, however we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.
Can I load up my skip higher than the top?
Unfortunately not. You must only pack the skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste up over this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you can be told to take off the excess waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.
How do you order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip will be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on public property (like the road). After that, pick the date you need the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment with our secure online payment system. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to Ripon on the day you have chosen.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builders skip means the size of skip most commonly supplied for construction and demolition projects. There are typically two different sizes which can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to dispose of substantial volumes of building and demolition waste materials, including dirt, concrete and rock.
Even though they are labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for various other domestic and business waste disposal tasks.
How much does skip hire in Ripon cost?
The cost of getting a skip in Ripon will depend on the size of skip you want. The lowest priced skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you require a bigger skip, like an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also be more if you need to have the skip positioned on the highway, because you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Can I have a skip that has a drop down door?
When you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is designed for getting rid of heavy building and construction waste materials, as it can be walked in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop-down door, however these are less common. Simply because these sizes are generally low 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 tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to ensure a skip which has a drop door is provided.
Will a skip hire company from Ripon deliver my skip?
Since we provide a UK-wide waste management service, we utilise a diverse network of approved companies. These vary from small family-run skip hire businesses to national waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental expectations.
Can I throw all types of waste in the skip?
Your skip can be hired to dispose of lots of different types of waste. We are used to picking up and handling numerous materials generated from building work, garden projects and home clearances. A few examples of allowed waste types include:
- Garden trimmings
- Top soil
- Stone and concrete
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Cabinets and units
Many waste materials are generally accepted, and therefore whether you want to throw out metals, plastic materials, timber or textiles, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The quantity and items you put in the skip will vary based on which size skip you ordered. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you need to dispose of soil and gravel, as an example, the largest size you would be allowed to use would be the 8 yard builders skip.
Are there items that I can’t discard in the skip?
There are some waste materials you will not be able to dispose of in your skip. The reason behind this is that some goods include hazardous elements which may damage the environment. They can even be hazardous to human health, therefore they must be discarded separately within UK law.
A few of the items which are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- Computer screens
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
Will you deliver skips across North Yorkshire?
In addition to delivering skips to Ripon, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout North Yorkshire. By utilising our network of regional and national waste management and recycling businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to Ripon, Brotton or Stokesley, we have got you covered.
Am I allowed to put electrical items in my skip?
No, you can not put old or broken electronic waste items in your skip. This includes such things as printers, cookers, washing machines, fridges and monitors. Electronic items can’t be discarded in your skip since they can have hazardous materials and components.
Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We will normally offer a next day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, since to be on public property (such as a highway), you will need to gain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of several factors that may impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it turning up in a morning or afternoon slot.
Where does the waste be taken to once the skip is collected?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into the different waste materials, such as wood, metals, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?
The roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a massive skip used to dispose of large quantities of rubbish. These skips are primarily for industrial use but can be used by residential customers also. However, you will want a good amount of space since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger in comparison to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.
Due to the size, roll-on roll-off skips should only be provided for light materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and rubble.
Should I be in when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not have to be at home when we are delivering your skip. Providing we are able to gain access to where you want it located, we can manage everything.
For those who are not likely to be in, simply let us know any relevant delivery instructions when booking the order. For instance, you might need the skip to be dropped on a particular part of your property. Or you might want to ensure the skip does not obstruct entry to your garage.
No matter what the situation might be, provide the information when ordering, and we will make sure your directions are passed to the delivery driver.
How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest skip delivered by skip firms and is perfect for small DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip firms will provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
