Below are some of the typical questions we have received about our skip hire services.
Stocksbridge Skip Hire FAQs
Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
Electric powered objects like television sets, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste and therefore should not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered goods must be segregated from other materials. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Stocksbridge?
We use a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in Stocksbridge and the rest of the country. Each of our partner skip hire providers are verified and tested to make certain they match our standards for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
Generally, you can keep a skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you don’t need to rush through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is full ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Stocksbridge?
Our goal is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in Stocksbridge. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip that you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have the skip placed on the highway or other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the additional price of a skip permit.
What are the different skip sizes available?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Stocksbridge, you will have several options to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is great for small home clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also makes them suitable for house clearances involving large objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only appropriate for light materials, so they can’t be used to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
For more details about the different skip sizes offered, including proportions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
Is it okay to load my skip higher than level load mark?
I’m afraid not. You can only pack your skip up to the level load mark. Loading rubbish up above this line will make it dangerous to move, and you may be told to take away the surplus waste before the skip can be collected. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
As the name indicates, a builders skip is the size of skip most frequently supplied for building and demolition jobs. There are typically two different skip sizes which can be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to dispose of substantial volumes of building and demolition materials, like soil, concrete and rock.
Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, these can be used for multiple other domestic and business waste disposal jobs.
If I require a skip on a road in Stocksbridge, will I need to have a permit?
If possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface area. When you are carrying out a household task, then the drive is going to be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. However, if neither is available, the road or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public property, you will need to obtain a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be dropped on a street, grass verge or any other public property in Stocksbridge. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be issued for you. An additional fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.
What can I put in my skip?
You are able to put a variety of waste in the skip. This includes wood, tile, metal or rubble from a property clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, soil and stone from garden work is permitted as well. Worktops from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be discarded in a skip.
There are, however, a few items that you cannot put in a skip due to the potential environment or health risks they could trigger.
You cannot throw in your freezer, television or your old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. All of these items include hazardous elements in one kind or another. They need to be discarded separately from general rubbish.
If you want hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to organise an independent collection for this material. Feel free to email us for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

When will the skip be delivered to me?
We can usually supply skips to Stocksbridge the following working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking platform offers you a number of delivery dates to select from. So whether you need your skip delivered ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip?
When you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Stocksbridge where we will separate the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to get rid of large quantities of waste materials. Primarily, these skips are used for commercial uses. Having said that, residential clients can also hire them. You have to take into account the space they will take up, because they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be utilised for light-weight waste including paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of soil and hardcore.
Can you deliver skips across South Yorkshire?
We offer a UK wide skip hire and waste management service by using a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Stocksbridge, Tickhill, Rawmarsh, Wath upon Dearne or another site in South Yorkshire, we are able to assist.
What size skips will have a door?
Generally, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you require a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Having a skip which has a drop door is primarily beneficial if you are choosing a large builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini skips, because they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How large is the mini skip?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some household rubbish, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to handle numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be placed on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit.
Although most commonly hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even be used for small commercial jobs.
Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be home when we deliver the skip. As long as we can gain access to where you need it located, we will manage everything.
For those who are not likely to be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you place the order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be positioned on a particular area of your drive. Or you might want to be sure that the skip doesn’t hinder access to your garage.
No matter what the situation might be, provide the information when you place your order, and then we will ensure the directions are passed on to the lorry driver.
