Scarborough Skip Hire FAQs

Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Scarborough?

This depends upon where the skip is going to be located. You will only require a skip permit if it is put on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit when your skip is on private property, like a drive or inside your company premises.

If you do have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, so we can make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on private property, it will save you some money.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?

The contents of your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling facility. Here the waste will be sorted by machines and also by hand into different waste streams, such as metal, cardboard, concrete and timber. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to increase the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?

If you run a business in Scarborough and want to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a perfect option. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that are available.

As the name suggests, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike normal skips, that are lifted using chains.

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?

No, you cannot throw old or unwanted electronic waste products in your skip. This includes such things as laptops, cookers, dishwashers, fridges and computer monitors. These items can’t be disposed of in the 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 be sent to landfill and must be recycled.

What is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some household waste, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to take on many tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be located on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit.

Although most commonly chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.

Who will deliver my skip?

A local skip firm will most likely deliver your skip in Scarborough. We utilize a network of both local and nationwide businesses to enable us to provide our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are vetted to guarantee they satisfy the high principles we require regarding service, cost and environmental performance.

What size is a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builders skip is the size of skip most frequently supplied for construction work. There are generally two different sizes that may be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins which you can use to dispose of substantial amounts of building and demolition waste, including soil, rubble and bricks.

Although branded a builders skip, they can be used for a number of other residential and industrial waste disposal tasks.

What kinds of rubbish can you put in a skip?

You are allowed to throw a variety of waste types into your skip. This can include wood, tile, plastics or concrete from a house clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, dirt and rock from garden tasks are allowed as well. Dated cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in a skip.

However, there are a few items that can’t be put in a skip a result of the possible environmental or health risks they might trigger.

You can’t throw in your refrigerator, computer monitor or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things include hazardous elements in one kind or another. They need to be discarded separately from general waste.

If you require hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to organise a separate collection for this material. Please get in touch for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

We provide a whole variety of skip capacities to household and industrial customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the enormous 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

Here are the different skip sizes you can choose from, with a rough idea of the amount of waste each skip can hold:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
  • 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
  • 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
  • 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

Can I fill the skip above the level load mark?

It is essential to not overfill the skip. You can not pass the level load mark shown on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it is very dangerous to move. Which means that when you overfill your skip, you might be required to take off the surplus waste. However safe you believe the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be hazardous and is therefore not allowed.

Through a network of local and national skip hire and recycling companies, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Scarborough, Skelton or Middlesbrough, we have got it covered.

How long can I hire the skip for?

You can typically hire your skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up will be as convenient as possible, there is the option of providing a preferred collection date when placing your order.

Alternatively, just tell us when you have finished loading up your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the following working day.

For those who are not likely to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For example, you may need the skip to be positioned at a particular area of the driveway. Or you might want to be sure that the skip does not prevent use of your garage.

Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we request is that you make sure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery site, as failed deliveries can lead to a charge for the wasted journey.

Then, pick the date you want your skip to be delivered. Check your order details and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Scarborough on the day you have chosen.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

When you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is ideal for disposing of heavy building and construction waste, as it can be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop down door, although these are generally more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically low enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our best to make sure a skip with a drop door is supplied.

Other areas covered include Skelton, Middlesbrough, Knaresborough, Yarm, York, Stokesley, Whitby and Pateley Bridge.
