Sheffield Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is the most popular skip that is ordered throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builders skip is perfect for most building work, which is where the name originates from.
The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip is the largest option which you can use for heavy materials including garden soil, concrete, stone and rubble.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
You can normally have a skip for up to 2 weeks from your date of delivery. You can provide a chosen pick up date when you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have loaded the skip, and then we will arrange your collection. Usually, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer over hectic periods.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
Virtually all skips can be provided with a drop door, making them easy to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the container, especially with weighty materials, like garden soil and bricks, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in big and bulky items, like household furniture.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are big industrial size skips that are used predominantly in the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for organisations that produce significant amounts of waste materials.
How fast can you deliver a skip to Sheffield?
If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we can even give you a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days are confirmed during the online order process.
Can you deliver skips across South Yorkshire?
Sure, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skip sizes to areas across South Yorkshire, including Sheffield, Penistone, Thorne and Goldthorpe. So regardless of where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
Do I need to be home whenever the skip will be delivered?
It usually is best if you can be available when anyone delivers anything to your property. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located just where you need it.
The same applies for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
However, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
What happens to the waste?
The rubbish in your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling station. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machinery and also by hand into various waste materials, like soil, cardboard, stone and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Sheffield?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a skip permit when it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit when your skip will be on private property, like a driveway or inside your company premises.
If you have to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on your own property, you will save some money.
Is it ok to load up my skip higher than level load line?
It is important not to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being told to take off surplus waste prior to it being collected. Whatever size you order, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, since transporting an overloaded skip can be dangerous, as objects could fall and lead to injuries or damage to other people.
To avoid this problem, please be sure you order a size appropriate for your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full and you have additional waste to dispose of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
Am I allowed to get rid of electrical items in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, because electronic products like old TVs, fridges, computers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly way.
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Sheffield. We work with a network of both regional and nationwide companies to allow us to offer our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully vetted to ensure they meet the high standards we demand with regards to customer service, cost and environmental performance.
What kinds of rubbish can you throw in a skip?
Before you hire a skip, it is essential to ensure that the type of waste you wish to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types you may put in a skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use a skip to discard building and construction waste, such as wood, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Some examples of restricted items include electronic goods, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
How do I hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us if the skip is going to be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on local authority property (like the street). After that, choose the day you need the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Sheffield on the day you have chosen.
What is the cost of skip hire in Sheffield?
The cost of getting a skip in Sheffield is determined by the size of skip you need. The cheapest skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders 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, because you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are ideal for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furniture and old toys to paving blocks and concrete. With a volume of about 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you having to make multiple trips to the local recycling centre.
