South Elmsall Skip Hire FAQs

How long can I keep the skip for?

You can in most cases have your skip for as long as two weeks from the date of delivery. You may give a chosen pick up day when you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can tell us when you have finished, and then we will plan your collection. Normally, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer over busy times.

Am I able to throw away electrical items in my skip?

Electric powered products including TVs, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore should not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electrical items need to be separated from other materials. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

Who will deliver my skip?

To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work with a wide range of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to make sure we can supply customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in South Elmsall?

In most cases, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like your skip to be situated on land outside of your company or home, you need to receive permission from your local council in South Elmsall, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we would gladly arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less thing to think about. The council does charge a fee for your skip license, and you should know before placing your order that getting the licence can sometimes take up to 2 working days.

Do you deliver skips across West Yorkshire?

When will the skip be delivered to me?

Our simple online booking platform gives you a variety of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like your skip delivered ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.

Do I have to be there when the skip is delivered?

You don’t really need to be home when the skip is going to be delivered, but it can help. Being home when the skip is delivered means that you can make sure the lorry driver can be given complete access and that your skip can be placed precisely where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is being delivered to a company premises, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

However, for those who can’t be available during delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you place your order, and then we will arrange things from there.

How large is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are great for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and old toys to paving blocks and bricks. With a total capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you having to make multiple trips to the local recycling centre.

What skip sizes can you supply?

When it comes to ordering a skip in South Elmsall, you have numerous options to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is excellent for small house clearances and DIY work.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most frequent sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their substantial capacity also makes them great for house clearances involving large objects such as household furniture and beds.

We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only suited to light waste, so they can’t be hired to dispose of soil or stone.

For more details about the various skip sizes offered, including proportions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.

What will happen to the waste?

The waste in your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer facility. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machinery and by hand into different waste materials, including metal, plastics, stone and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to increase the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in South Elmsall?

Our aim is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in South Elmsall. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip that you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you wish to have the skip positioned on the road or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the extra cost of the skip permit.

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

If you operate a business in South Elmsall and need to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container could be a fantastic option. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips available.

As the name implies, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to standard skips, which are lifted using chains.

Can I pile up the waste in my skip?

Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this makes it unsafe to transport, and you will then have to remove any contents higher than the level load line. This also means that you are not allowed to make use of sheets of wood, doors or any other item, as this will increase the height of the skip. We have a legal obligation to make sure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please be sure you choose the appropriate size of skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you’re uncertain which size is best. We would be glad to help.

Is it possible to have a skip with a drop down door?

Getting a skip which has a drop door makes filling waste into the skip a lot easier. This is especially true with heavy waste materials such as dirt or stone, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading large bulky objects like furniture a lot easier as well.

The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, although it will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when making your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our best to supply this.

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

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most commonly supplied for building jobs. There are generally two different skip sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that can be used to get rid of significant amounts of building and demolition waste, like soil, rubble and bricks.

Even though they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for multiple other household and business waste disposal jobs.

What is the procedure for hiring a skip in South Elmsall?

Hiring a skip in South Elmsall through us is incredibly simple. Select the skip size you require and input a handful of details about when and where you need the skip delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered to you.

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

You may use your skip to throw out lots of different waste materials. We are used to collecting and handling numerous materials produced from building work, garden landscaping and property tidy-ups. Some examples of permitted waste types include:

  • Furniture
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Soil
  • Concrete
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many waste materials are usually accepted, so whether you need to dispose of metals, plastic materials, wood or textiles, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The volume and materials you throw in your skip can vary according to the size skip you have ordered. All skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So to be able to get rid of top soil and gravel, as an example, the biggest size container you would be able to use will be the 8 cubic yard skip.

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

There are several materials you are not allowed to dispose of in the skip. The main reason for this is that these products include hazardous elements which could harm the environment. They can even be dangerous to human health, and so they need to be disposed of separately within UK law.

Some examples of the products which are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • PC screens
  • Battery packs
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Other areas covered include Brighouse, Morley, Featherstone, Batley, Bingley, Ilkley, Hemsworth and Liversedge.
