Below are a few of the common questions we get with regards to our skip hire service.

Skelton Skip Hire FAQs

What skip sizes can have a drop door?

Generally, most skips can be provided with a drop-down door, depending on size, availability and area. If you need a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful if choosing a large builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, because they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What types of waste materials can I put in the skip?

You can use your skip to throw out lots of different waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and handling a wide variety of materials produced from construction work, garden landscaping and household tidy-ups. Some examples of permitted waste materials include things like:

  • Home furniture
  • Garden cuttings
  • Garden soil
  • Hardcore
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Most waste types are generally accepted, so whether you wish to get rid of metals, plastic materials, wood or clothing, we can normally take your rubbish away.

The volume and items you put in the skip can vary according to the size skip you chosen. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you want to dispose of top soil and hardcore, as an example, the biggest size container you will be able to hire will be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?

There are a few materials that you will not be allowed to get rid of in the skip. The reason for this is that these products contain hazardous elements which may damage the environment. They could also be harmful to human health, and so they must be disposed of separately within UK legislation.

A few examples of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How many different skip sizes are available?

Skips are available in a selection of different sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is perfect for small household projects.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a good choice for garden clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to take on, the builder’s skip might be the smartest choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name implies, these represent the most frequent sizes hired by builders for building waste, like clay and stone. However they can equally well be used for household waste such as old furniture or kitchen units.

We also provide 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For additional information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container used to transport significant amounts of waste. Primarily, these type of containers are hired for industrial purposes. Having said that, domestic clients can also hire them. It is important to look at the area they will occupy, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be hired for light-weight waste like plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of soil and rubble.

Will a skip hire company from Skelton deliver my skip?

We use a network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Skelton and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner companies are verified and tested to guarantee they meet our standards for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

Do I have to be home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. You can then make sure the lorry has total access and that the skip is located precisely where you want it. The same applies if you have a skip delivered to company property, especially when gates restrict access.

However, if that is not possible, you don’t have to stress. Just tell us when placing your booking, and we will handle everything.

Can I fill the skip above the level load mark?

It is important never to overfill a skip. You should not pass the level load mark indicated on the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it can be very unsafe to transport. This means that if you overfill your skip, you could be required to take off the surplus waste. No matter how safe you feel the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. That is dangerous and is prohibited.

What is the size of a builders skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The term stems from the fact that these are the most typical sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These big skips are perfect for a wide variety of domestic and business tasks. They are the biggest skips which can be used for weighty builders waste like top soil, rubble and concrete.

When will my skip be delivered?

We can typically deliver skips to Skelton the next working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This is applicable to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking platform will give you a range of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you want the skip to arrive ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.

Can I throw electrical items in my skip?

Electric powered objects such as TVs, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and so should not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical products should be separated from other materials. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

How long can I keep a skip for?

You can usually have a skip for as long as two weeks from the delivery date. You can provide a chosen pick up day when you place your order. Otherwise, you can let us know once you have finished, and we will arrange your collection. Usually, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take a little longer during hectic times.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Skelton?

Our aim is to give you the lowest priced skip hire service in Skelton. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip that you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have a skip positioned on the highway or other council property, you will also need to factor in the added cost of a skip permit.

How large is a mini skip?

When you have a small amount of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip could be the ideal solution. What size is called a mini skip varies from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they supply.

The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to have a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. The cost is based on the particular size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are fantastic for residential jobs like small DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

Where does my rubbish go once the skip is collected?

After you have finished filling your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility in or local to Skelton where we sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

If I would like a skip on the road in Skelton, will I need a permit?

In most cases, it will be possible to have a skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But in order to do this, you have got to have consent from your local authority in Skelton, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry.
