Thorne Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to load up my skip higher than the side?
I’m afraid not. You are only allowed to fill your skip up to the level load mark. Piling rubbish up over this line will make it unsafe to transport, and you might be asked to remove the surplus waste before the skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or any other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is delivered?
You don’t have to be home when your skip will be delivered, but it does help. Being there whenever the skip is delivered means you can make sure the lorry is given full access and that your skip is located precisely where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is being hired to your company premises, we will appreciate your help during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
Even so, if you can’t be available for the delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask that you let us know when you book your order, and we will arrange everything from there.
Will a skip hire company from Thorne deliver my skip?
To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work in partnership with a number of local and national businesses. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container used to dispose of significant quantities of waste materials. In most cases, these type of containers are hired for industrial applications. Having said that, domestic clients can also order them. You have to consider the space they will take up, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be hired for light-weight materials including plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of soil and concrete.
Can you deliver to other areas in South Yorkshire?
We provide a UK wide skip hire and recycling service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Thorne, Penistone, Sheffield, Wath upon Dearne or any other area in South Yorkshire, we can assist.
How long will it take to get a skip in Thorne?
We will ensure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we cannot promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to reach you within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You will need to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted journey.
Am I allowed to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items have to be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric goods such as cookers, televisions, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.
What waste materials can I put in the skip?
Prior to ordering a skip, it is essential to check that the sort of waste materials you intend to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials must be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you can put in your skip include household goods like furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use a skip to get rid of building and demolition rubbish, including wood, soil, stone, metals and gravel.
Some examples of restricted items include electronic products, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be discarded separately from general rubbish.
Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Thorne?
This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only need a permit if it is placed on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if your skip will be on private property, such as a drive or on your business premises.
Should you need to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position your skip on your own property, you will save some money.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Thorne?
The cost of hiring a skip in Thorne will depend on the size of skip you require. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The cost will also increase if you want to have a skip on the highway, since you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
You can usually have your skip for up to 2 weeks from the delivery date. It is possible to provide a chosen pick up date when you place your order. Alternatively, you can tell us once you have loaded the skip, and then we will plan your collection. Normally, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a bit longer over busy periods.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. They are the largest skips that can be hired to get rid of weighty building materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or dirt.
The builders skip is perfect for a wide range of tasks. If you are having an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning out your loft, these large skips tend to be the most affordable option available.
What size skips can you provide?
We can supply a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip perfect for small DIY projects and household clearances. A popular choice for bigger tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Thorne businesses with a big amount of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Where does the rubbish be taken to when the skip is picked up?
The contents of your skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling facility. Here the contents will be segregated by machines and also by hand into numerous waste streams, including metal, plastics, stone and timber. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is always to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.
Do all skips have a drop door?
When you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is perfect for getting rid of heavy building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop door, although they are more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally low enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to make sure a container with a drop door is provided.
What is a mini skip?
If you have a small amount of waste to throw out, the mini skip could be the perfect choice. What size is referred to as a mini skip varies from business to business, determined by what sizes they supply.
2 cubic yards is probably the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to have a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. Price is based on the specific size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for household jobs like modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
