Thirsk Skip Hire FAQs
Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be at home when we are delivering the skip. So long as we can access the place you need it positioned, we can manage everything.
If you are not likely to be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when booking your order. For instance, you may need the skip to be located at a particular side of the drive. Or you might need to be sure that the skip doesn’t block entry to your garage.
No matter what the case may be, simply tell us when ordering, and we will make sure the directions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
Is it okay to load the skip above the top?
It is vital to not overload a skip. You must not pass the level load line that is shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it is very dangerous to transport. Which means that when you overfill your skip, you may be required to take off the surplus waste. However secure you think the skip to be, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. That is dangerous and is prohibited.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
Our normal hire period is 2 weeks from your delivery date. Having said that, at the time you book your skip, you can provide a collection date that will work for you. Of course, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if the skip is fully loaded earlier than expected, tell us, and we will get it removed as soon as possible.
We can usually make collections within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to understand that this may not always be possible during busy times. Once collected, your waste will be taken to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed and sorted.
What is the cost of skip hire in Thirsk?
The cost of getting a skip in Thirsk is determined by the size of skip you need. The lowest priced option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and clearances. If you want a larger sized skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also increase if you need to have the skip placed on the road, because you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Thirsk, you have various options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, also known as a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for modest home clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most popular sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also means they are suitable for household tidy ups involving large items like pieces of furniture and beds.
We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people and businesses with even larger waste disposal needs. These skips are only suitable for light waste materials, so they cannot be hired to dispose of garden soil or rubble.
For further information regarding the various sizes offered, such as dimensions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into different waste streams, like timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What kinds of rubbish am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?
This is one of the most frequent questions people have about our service. The main thing to keep in mind is that you may fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of rubbish which will result from garden projects, construction work and property clearances.
Among the most frequent things that we find in skips include dirt, wood, bush trimmings, cupboards, bathroom suites, as well as other household objects.
There are some waste materials that you are not allowed to put in the skip. This consists of any electrical products (fridge freezers, monitors or washing machines for example), old tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. These are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and getting rid of them has to abide by a completely different procedure to ensure they don’t result in harm to the environment.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old or broken electronic waste items in a skip. This can include things like laptops or computers, microwaves, dishwashers, refrigerators and computer monitors. Electronic objects can’t be thrown in your skip because they can include hazardous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.
What size skips have got a drop door?
Using a skip with a drop down door makes loading waste into it much easier. This is especially the case with heavy waste materials like dirt and hardcore, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading big bulky items such as furniture a lot easier as well.
Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, but this will sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when making your order if a door is required, and we will do our best to provide this.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you run a business in Thirsk and need to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips that can be hired.
As the name suggests, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike normal skips, which are lifted by using chains.
What size is a mini skip?
For those who have a small amount of waste to dispose of, a mini skip might be the best option. What size is identified as a mini skip varies from business to business, based on what sizes they supply.
The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard skip for their smallest option. The cost is dependent on the particular size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are fantastic for domestic jobs such as small DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
Will a Thirsk skip hire company deliver my skip?
As we provide a national skip hire service, we use a diverse network of verified and approved companies. These can include small family-run skip hire businesses to national waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to ensure they meet our high customer service and environmental expectations.

How big is a builders skip?
As the name indicates, a builders skip is the size of skip most often supplied for construction and demolition work. There are typically two sizes that can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins which you can use to get rid of large quantities of construction and demolition materials, including garden soil, rubble and stone.
Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for a number of other household and commercial waste disposal jobs.
Do you deliver to other areas in North Yorkshire?
Absolutely. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we can offer skips to household and industrial customers across North Yorkshire and elsewhere within the UK.
How long does it take to get a skip in Thirsk?
We can typically deliver skips to Thirsk the following working day when an order is placed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking program provides you with various delivery dates to choose from. So whether you would like a skip delivered ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
If I want a skip on a road in Thirsk, will I need to have a permit?
If possible, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface. If you are doing a residential job, then the driveway is going to be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. On the other hand, when neither is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public land, you will need to get a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on a street, grass verge or other public property in Thirsk. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be granted for you. An additional charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.
Other areas covered include Haxby, Thornaby-on-Tees, Knaresborough, Brotton, Filey, Easingwold, Leyburn and Settle.
