Shipley Skip Hire FAQs
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, that will give you sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, in the event you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know once you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip available from skip firms and is great for small DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms provide a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
If I want a skip on a road in Shipley, will I need to get a permit?
This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a skip permit when it is put on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if the skip is on private property, such as a drive or inside your company premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on your own property, you will save some pounds.
What happens to the rubbish?
After you have finished filling your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility in or local to Shipley where we will separate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
Will a Shipley skip hire company deliver my skip?
We utilise a network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to supply skips to our clients in Shipley and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner firms are approved and tested to make sure they satisfy our expectations for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
Is it okay to load up the skip above the top?
You should not load the skip past the level load mark. When you load it over the tip of this mark, it means that your skip is not safe and secure to move, and you may be asked to take off the excess waste before it can be collected.
Am I allowed to dispose of all sorts of waste in my skip?
It is possible to throw a wide array of waste types into the skip. This can include wood, floor tiles, metal or bricks from a household clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, top soil and rock from garden work is allowed too. Cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in a skip.
However, there are a few things that you are not allowed to put in a skip due to the potential ecological or health risks they could cause.
You cannot throw in your fridge, television or old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items contain hazardous materials in one type or another. They must be disposed of separately from normal waste.
Should you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to arrange an independent collection for this material. Please email us for further information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
Am I allowed to throw electronic items in my skip?
No, you cannot dispose of old or unwanted electronic waste products in your skip. This can include items like laptops, hobs, dishwashers, fridges and television sets. Electronic objects can’t be thrown in the skip since they can contain dangerous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
A builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These are the largest containers that can be hired to discard heavy construction waste such as stone, concrete, gravel or clay.
A builders skip is ideal for a variety of tasks. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing the shed, these big containers tend to be the most affordable option available.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We can provide a wide selection of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip suitable for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A common choice for bigger jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Shipley businesses which produce a large volume of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do I have to be home when the skip is delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be in when anybody delivers something to your home. That allows you to make sure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed precisely where you need it.
The same thing applies for those who have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, should it be unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.
Will the skip have a drop door?
When you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is ideal for getting rid of hefty building and demolition waste materials, as it can be walked in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop-down door, although these are typically less common. This is because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our very best to make sure a skip which has a drop door is provided.
How do I order a skip online?
Hiring a skip in Shipley through us is incredibly easy. Pick the skip size you need and then input a couple of details about where and when you would like your skip delivered. Then you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then arrange to get your skip delivered to you.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will make sure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You should ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will usually incur a charge for the wasted journey.
Do you deliver skips across West Yorkshire?

How much will skip hire in Shipley cost?
Our goal is to provide you with the most affordable skip hire service in Shipley. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip that you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have your skip situated on the road or other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the extra expense of a skip permit.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial commercial scale skips used predominantly within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for organisations that generate large volumes of waste materials.
