Selby Skip Hire FAQs

When will my skip be delivered?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We can typically give you a next day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, because to go on public property (such as a street), you will have to gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.

Due to numerous factors that may 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 turning up in a AM or PM slot.

Can you deliver to other areas in North Yorkshire?

We offer a UK wide skip hire and waste management service using a network of verified and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you want skip hire in Selby, Yarm, Pateley Bridge, Thirsk or any other location in North Yorkshire, we are able to help.

Do all skips have a drop door?

In general, almost all skips can be provided with a drop down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you require a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip with a drop door is mainly helpful if hiring a big builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This is not so important for mini skips, as they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How long can I hire a skip for?

Normally, you can have the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t have to hurry through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

Will a Selby skip hire company deliver my skip?

We use a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in Selby and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner firms are approved and evaluated to ensure they match our standards for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.

Is it okay to fill the skip higher than the top?

I’m afraid not. You are only allowed to fill up the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking rubbish up above this line makes it dangerous to move, and you may be asked to take away the excess waste before your skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.

Should I be in when the skip is going to be delivered?

It is always a good idea to be in when anybody delivers something to your house. That enables you to make sure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be located just where you want it.

The same thing goes if you have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.

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

If possible, you should have the skip left on to a hard surface area. If you are doing a household project, then the driveway is going to be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you must get a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be placed on the street, grass verge or any other public property in Selby. If this is required, we will request the permit to be granted for you. An extra charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your skip.

Am I able to dispose of all sorts of waste in the skip?

Before you hire a skip, you must make sure that the type of rubbish you want to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Waste types you may throw in a skip include household items like furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You can also use your skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, like old bricks, soil, stone, metals and concrete.

Some examples of forbidden items include things like electrical goods, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore must be discarded separately from your general rubbish.

Where will you take the waste from my skip?

Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into different waste materials, such as timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container used to transport significant amounts of waste materials. In most cases, these skips are hired for business uses. However, domestic clients may also use them. You have to consider the area they will occupy, because they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be utilised for lightweight waste such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of soil and concrete.

Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?

I’m afraid not, since electrical items like old TVs, cookers, printers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly way.

What is a builder’s skip?

The term builders skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The name comes from the fact that these are the most typical sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.

These large containers are suited to a multitude of residential and commercial projects. These are the biggest sizes which can be used for heavy builders waste like top soil, stone and concrete.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Selby?

The price of getting a skip in Selby is determined by the size of skip you require. The cheapest skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you need a larger skip, like an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also be more if you need to have your skip positioned on the road, since you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

How large is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size provided by skip companies and is perfect for smaller DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some companies will provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

Other areas covered include Yarm, Pateley Bridge, Thirsk, Bedale, Kirkbymoorside, Leyburn, Tadcaster and Northallerton.
