South Kirkby Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
A builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These are the biggest containers that can be hired to get rid of substantial construction materials such as stone, bricks, rubble or dirt.
The builder’s skip is great for a number of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing out the shed, these big skips are usually the most affordable choice available.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
The materials in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling centre. Here the contents will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into different waste streams, like soil, plastics, concrete and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is always to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in South Kirkby?
Generally, it is possible to get the skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But in order to do this, you need to have approval from the local council in South Kirkby, which is called a skip permit. We are able to organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for the license, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to approve this.
What kinds of rubbish am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?
Before you hire your skip, it is essential to ensure that the kind of waste materials you need to discard is allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types you could put in a skip include household goods like furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You may also use your skip to dispose of building and construction waste, such as bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and gravel.
Some examples of forbidden items include electrical products, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. These are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently need to be discarded separately from your general rubbish.
How long can I hire the skip for?
You can usually keep your skip for up to two weeks from your date of delivery. You can give a preferred pick up day when you place your order. Otherwise, you can let us know once you have loaded the skip, and we will prepare the collection. In most cases, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer during hectic periods.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old or unwanted electronic waste products in a skip. This can include things such as laptops or computers, microwaves, dishwashers, refrigerators and television sets. Electronic items can’t be disposed of in your skip since they can have dangerous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
Is it ok to load the skip above level load mark?
I’m afraid not. You are only allowed to fill your skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste up over this line would make it unsafe to move, and you may be asked to get rid of the excess waste before the skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in South Kirkby?
To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in South Kirkby, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display which skip sizes we offer in your town and how much each size costs to order. If your skip is going to be on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.
What is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to handle many tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be positioned on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.
Although most frequently hired by residential customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.
Do I have to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we are delivering your skip. Providing we can access the place you need it delivered, we are able to take care of it all.
If you are not likely to be in, just let us know any relevant delivery instructions when booking the order. For instance, you might prefer the skip to be positioned on a particular part of the drive. Alternatively, you may need to make sure the skip does not hinder access to your garage.
No matter what the case may be, provide the information when you place your order, and then we will ensure the directions are passed on to the delivery driver.
Can you deliver to other areas in West Yorkshire?
Yes. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we are able to deliver skips to household and business customers across West Yorkshire and elsewhere within the UK.
Will the skip come with a drop door?
The vast majority of containers can be provided with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the skip, especially with heavy materials, like soil and bricks, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to hiring a skip in South Kirkby, you will have several sizes to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for small house clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most popular sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their substantial capacity also makes them great for house clearances including bulky items such as household furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people and businesses with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These sizes are only suitable for light waste materials, so they cannot be used to dispose of garden soil or stone.
For additional details about the different skip sizes offered, such as measurements, check out our guide to skip sizes.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a huge skip that can be used to get rid of large quantities of waste. These skips are primarily for commercial use but can be hired by residential customers too. Having said that, you need plenty of room as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger than the average skip you will see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, RORO containers can only be hired for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suitable for disposing of concrete and bricks.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we cannot promise a precise delivery time, we will do our best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You will need to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will normally incur a charge for the wasted journey.

We utilise a network of both local and national skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in South Kirkby and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner skip hire companies are approved and evaluated to guarantee they meet our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.
