Silsden Skip Hire FAQs

Do you deliver skips across West Yorkshire?

Indeed, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skips to locations throughout West Yorkshire, such as Silsden, Meltham, South Kirkby and Sowerby Bridge. So no matter where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you operate a company in Silsden and need to dispose of large volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a fantastic option. Available in 20 – 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers that you can hire.

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

What will happen to the waste?

When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into different waste materials, like timber, metals, paper, etc. This ensures that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What is the process of hiring a skip in Silsden?

Ordering a skip in Silsden with us is incredibly straightforward. Choose the skip size you require and input a handful of details about where and when you need the skip to be delivered. You then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then prepare to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

How long does it take to get a skip in Silsden?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We can typically provide a following day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, since to be on public property (such as a highway), you will have to gain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.

Due to several factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it to be delivered within a morning or afternoon slot.

What size is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to take on numerous tasks.

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

Although most often hired by residential customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.

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

Ideally, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface area. If you are carrying out a household task, then a driveway is going to be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. On the other hand, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public property, you have got to have a permit from the 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 other public property in Silsden. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be issued for you. An extra fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.

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

No, you do not need to be at home when we deliver your skip. Providing we can access the place you want it positioned, we can take care of everything.

In the event you are not going to be in, simply let us know any relevant delivery instructions when you place your order. For instance, you might prefer the skip to be dropped on a particular area of the drive. Alternatively, you might need to ensure that the skip doesn’t hinder access to your garage.

Whatever the case might be, provide the details when ordering, and then we will make sure your directions are passed to the lorry driver.

Which size skips have got a drop door?

Virtually all skip sizes can be provided with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the container, particularly with heavy materials, such as garden soil and bricks, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, like household furniture.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

You can usually keep the skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, you have the choice of offering a preferred collection date when placing your order.

Otherwise, simply let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the next working day.

It might take a little bit longer to collect your skip during busy times, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Silsden?

To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Silsden, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you the sizes we provide in your location and how much each one will cost to hire. If the skip will be on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.

Can I dispose of all sorts of rubbish in the skip?

This is one of the most popular questions people have about skip hire. What is important to consider is that you can load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of types of waste that may result from garden projects, building work and household clearances.

Some of the most frequent things that we see in our skips include soil, wood, bush trimmings, kitchen cabinets, toilets, and various other household objects.

There are some materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This consists of any electrical goods (fridge freezers, TVs or laptops for example), car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. They are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and disposing of them needs to abide by a completely different process to make sure they do not cause harm to the environment.

Can I put electronic items in my skip?

Electric powered products including tv sets, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste and therefore can not be placed in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electrical products must be segregated from other waste. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most often hired for building and demolition work. There are usually two different sizes that may be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that can be used to get rid of substantial quantities of construction and demolition materials, such as dirt, concrete and bricks.

Although labelled a builders skip, these can be used for multiple other domestic and industrial waste disposal jobs.

What different sizes do skips come in?

We provide a complete range of skip capacities to domestic and business customers all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

Here are the various sized skips offered, with a rough guide to how much rubbish each size 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

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

Please don’t overfill your skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will then be asked to empty any rubbish over the level load mark. This means that you are not allowed to use sheets of wood, doors or any other item, since this will increase the size of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to ensure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure to choose the appropriate size of skip to meet your requirements and get in touch if you’re not sure which size you need. We will be pleased to help.
