Rotherham Skip Hire FAQs
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Rotherham?
If possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface. For anybody who is carrying out a residential task, then a driveway will be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. On the other hand, when neither is available, the street or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public land, you must have a permit from your local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be dropped on the street, grass verge or other public property in Rotherham. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be granted for you. An extra fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
How much waste can a builders skip hold?
The builders skip is probably the most frequent skip which is used in the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is ideal for most building and demolition projects, which is where the name stems from.
The 8 yd builder’s skip will be the largest option that can be used for hefty materials like soil, concrete, stone and gravel.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip?
After you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility in or local to Rotherham where we will separate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
Do I need to be home when the skip will be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be at home on the day it is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has full access and that the skip can be situated precisely where you want it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to business property, especially when gates restrict access.
Having said that, if this is not achievable, you don’t need to worry. Simply let us know when making your order, and we will take care of the rest.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container used to dispose of large amounts of waste. Predominantly, these skips are used for commercial applications. However, residential customers may also hire them. It is very important look at the area they will occupy, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be hired for light waste such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and concrete.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact skip provided by skip companies and is good for small DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms offer you a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Will a skip hire company from Rotherham deliver my skip?
We utilise a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to supply skips to our clients in Rotherham and the rest of the country. Each of our partner businesses are approved and evaluated to guarantee they satisfy our expectations for cost, service, recycling and reliability.
Is it okay to load my skip higher than the top?
You should not fill a skip beyond the level load line. If you load it above the tip of this level, it means your skip will not be safe to move, and you can be asked to remove any extra waste prior to it being picked up.
What can I put in the skip?
You are able to load the skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly generated from garage clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include wood, soil, concrete, hedge trimmings, household furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you throw in the skip depends on the skip size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight limit. For example, if you are using your skip for heavy building waste like rubble or top soil, the biggest size you could use is an 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be disposed of in a skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
Generally, you can have a skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you don’t have to hurry through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
How do I order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us whether the skip shall be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or local authority property (like the road). Next, select the day you want the skip to get delivered. Check your order and make payment using our secure online payment system. Job done! We will deliver your skip to Rotherham on the date you have chosen.
What sizes do skips come in?
We can supply a wide selection of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip excellent for modest DIY projects and domestic clearances. A popular option for larger projects, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Rotherham companies with a big volume of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How quick can you deliver a skip to Rotherham?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We will usually offer a next day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, because to go on public property (like a highway), you need to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of several factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it arriving in a morning or afternoon slot.
What size skips will have a door?
Typically, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, depending on the size, availability and area. If you require a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip with a drop door is mainly beneficial if hiring a big builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials straight into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, as they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Can you deliver to other areas in South Yorkshire?
Certainly. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we can provide skips to both residential and business customers across South Yorkshire and elsewhere within the UK.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old electronic waste products in a skip. This includes such things as laptops or computers, microwaves, dishwashers, fridges and computer monitors. These objects can’t be thrown in a skip as they can contain dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.
What is the cost of skip hire in Rotherham?
Our goal is to provide you with the most affordable skip hire service in Rotherham. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip that you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you wish to have the skip located on the street or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the extra price of a skip permit.
