Sowerby Bridge Skip Hire FAQs

What will happen to the rubbish?

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets sorted into a variety of waste streams, such as stone, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

What can I put in the skip?

Prior to hiring your skip, it is important to check that the type of waste materials you need to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials have to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Waste types you could throw in your skip include household items like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use a skip to dispose of building and demolition rubbish, including wood, soil, rubble, metals and concrete.

Some examples of prohibited items include electronic goods, tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be discarded separately from any general rubbish.

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

The builder’s skip is regarded as the frequent skip used across the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builder’s skip is fantastic for most building and construction work, which is where the name originates from.

The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip will be the biggest size which you can use for heavy waste including garden soil, concrete, stone and gravel.

How many different skip sizes are there?

We supply a full-range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip suitable for modest DIY jobs and house clearances. A popular option for bigger jobs, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Sowerby Bridge companies which generate a significant quantity of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How can I hire a skip online?

This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you wish to hire. Let us know if the skip is going to be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (such as the street). Next, select the date you need the skip to get delivered. Check your order and make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. Job done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Sowerby Bridge on the date you have selected.

Am I allowed to pile up the waste in my skip?

Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it hazardous to transport, and you will have to remove any rubbish over the level load mark. This means that you are not allowed to make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other item, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal responsibility to ensure that skips are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure that you hire the correct size of skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you are not sure which size is best. We would be happy to help.

When will my skip be delivered?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We can typically offer a following day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, since to go on public property (such as a street), you must gain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to many factors that may impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it arriving in a morning or afternoon slot.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

If you have a company in Sowerby Bridge and want to get rid of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a great option. Available in 20 – 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that you can hire.

As the name indicates, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, as opposed to normal skips, which are picked up by using chains.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Sowerby Bridge?

A local skip hire firm will likely deliver your skip in Sowerby Bridge. We make use of a network of both regional and nationwide businesses to allow us to provide our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully assessed to guarantee they match the high expectations we demand regarding service, cost and environmental performance.

Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?

Unfortunately not, since electronic products like old TVs, cookers, printers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly fashion.

If I would like a skip on a road in Sowerby Bridge, will I need a permit?

In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you want the skip to be located on land outside of your business or house, you will have to receive authorisation from the local authority in Sowerby Bridge, which is known as a permit. If required, we will be happy to organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less thing to think about. The council will charge a fee for your permit, and you should know before ordering that obtaining the permit will often take up to two working days.

Do you deliver skips across West Yorkshire?

Yes. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we are able to offer skips to domestic and commercial customers across West Yorkshire and elsewhere within the UK.

What size is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size provided by skip companies and is ideal for small DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms offer you a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

What is the cost of skip hire in Sowerby Bridge?

The price of getting a skip in Sowerby Bridge is determined by the size of skip you want. The cheapest skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you require a larger skip, like an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you need to have the skip on the road, since you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.

What skip sizes will have a door?

Typically, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, dependant upon size, availability and location. If you require a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip with a drop door is mainly beneficial if you are choosing a large builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow waste directly into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, as they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can normally keep your skip for as many as 14 days from your delivery date. You may give a chosen collection date at the time you make your order. Alternatively, you can let us know once you have loaded the skip, and we will organise the collection. In most cases, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a bit longer over busy times.

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

When you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be in when it is delivered. Then you can ensure that the skip lorry has full access and that the skip can be located exactly where you need it. This also is true if you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates limit access.

However, when this isn’t achievable, you do not need to be concerned. Just tell us when making your order, and we will handle everything.

Other areas covered include Hemsworth, Leeds, Halifax, Elland, Garforth, South Elmsall, Keighley and Ilkley.
