Settle Skip Hire FAQs

When will my skip be delivered?

When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we will even provide a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed when going through the online order process.

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available from skip firms and is good for small DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms offer a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

Will you deliver to other areas in North Yorkshire?

In addition to delivering skips and containers to Settle, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within North Yorkshire. By utilising our network of regional and national waste management and recycling companies, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business in Settle, Middleham or Bedale, we have got you covered.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The term builder’s skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The label originates from the fact that these are the most common sizes used by builders and tradespeople.

These substantial skips are suited to numerous residential and industrial jobs. These are the largest skip sizes which you can use for heavy builders waste such as top soil, rubble and bricks.

Will a skip hire company from Settle deliver my skip?

A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Settle. We make use of a network of both local and nationwide providers to allow us to provide our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are comprehensively assessed to make sure they fulfill the high expectations we require in terms of customer service, cost and environmental performance.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to transport large amounts of waste materials. Mostly, these type of containers are hired for industrial purposes. Having said that, residential customers may also order them. You have to look at the space they occupy, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be used for light materials including plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of dirt and stone.

Which skip sizes have got a door?

Having a skip with a drop down door will make loading rubbish into the skip so much easier. This is particularly true with hefty waste such as soil or hardcore, which can then be walked straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading large bulky objects like household furniture easier as well.

Most skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, however this can sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when making your order if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Settle?

Our goal is to offer the most affordable skip hire service in Settle. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have a skip located on the highway or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of a skip permit.

Am I able to put electrical products in my skip?

No, you can not put old electronic waste products in a skip. This can include things like computers, microwaves, washing machines, freezers and monitors. Electrical items can’t be disposed of in the skip because they can contain dangerous materials and components.

Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.

What happens to the waste in my skip?

The materials in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer facility. Here the contents will be sorted by machines and also by hand into numerous waste streams, including soil, cardboard, rubble and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Settle?

In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you want your skip to be located on land outside of your business or house, you will have to receive permission from the local authority in Settle, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we will be glad to organise this for you, and so it’s one less thing to worry about. The council does charge a fee for the permit, plus you should know before placing your order that obtaining the permit will often take up to two working days.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a wide range of different sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is ideal for small residential jobs.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great choice for garden shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to sort out, the builder’s skip may be the best choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, these are the most typical sizes used by builders for construction waste, such as soil and rubble. But they can just as well be used for household rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also supply 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional info on all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Is it ok to load my skip higher than the top?

It is important to not overfill a skip, as you risk being told to remove excessive waste before it can be collected. Regardless of the size you hire, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as transporting an overloaded skip can be dangerous, as materials could fall and cause injury or damage to other people.

To prevent this problem, please ensure that you hire a size appropriate for your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full but you have some further rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.

What can I put in my skip?

Your skip may be used to get rid of many different types of waste. We are used to collecting and processing numerous items generated from building jobs, garden projects and house clean-ups. A few examples of allowed waste materials can include:

  • Home furniture
  • Hedge cuttings
  • Garden soil
  • Bricks
  • Bathroom suites
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many different waste materials are usually permitted, and therefore whether you want to discard metals, plastics, timber or fabric, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The volume and materials you throw into your skip will vary depending on the size skip you ordered. All skips have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you want to discard garden soil and hardcore, as an example, the biggest size container you would be allowed to hire is the 8 yard builders skip.

Are there items that I can’t discard in the skip?

There are several waste materials that you are not able to throw out in the skip. The reason behind this is that some items incorporate hazardous components which can be damaging to the environment. They can even be dangerous to human health, therefore they need to be disposed of separately within UK laws.

A few examples of the products which are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

You can typically keep your skip for as long as 2 weeks from your delivery date. You can give a preferred collection date at the time you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can tell us when you have finished with the skip, and then we will prepare the collection. Generally, this will be the following working day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer during hectic periods.

Do I need to stay in when the skip is delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be there when it is delivered. You can then make sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip can be situated precisely where you need it. The same applies when you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates limit access.

However, if that isn’t achievable, you don’t have to be concerned. Simply let us know when you are placing your order, and then we will take care of the rest.
