Below are some of the common questions we have received with regards to our skip hire services.
Thurnscoe Skip Hire FAQs
What size is a builders skip?
The builders skip is the most common skip that is hired throughout the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is great for most building and construction jobs, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 yard builders skip will be the largest option that can be used for hefty waste materials including dirt, concrete, bricks and rubble.
What things can I put in my skip?
You are able to put a variety of rubbish into the skip. This can include timber, bathroom tiles, plastics or concrete from a house clearance. Tree and bush clippings, top soil and stone from garden work is allowed as well. Dated cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in a skip.
However, there are things that you cannot put in a skip because of the potential environmental or health risk they may cause.
You can not throw in your fridge, computer monitor or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things include hazardous elements in one form or another. They need to be disposed of separately from general waste.
Should you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to organise a separate service for this waste. Please get in touch for more information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
Can I get rid of electronic products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items need to be kept separate from general rubbish to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electronic goods like tumble dryers, TVs, toasters, laptops and even hair straighteners.
Do you deliver to other areas in South Yorkshire?
We offer a UK wide skip hire and waste management service through a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Thurnscoe, Bolton Upon Dearne, Dinnington, Bawtry or any other area in South Yorkshire, we are able to assist.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?
Once you have finished with your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Thurnscoe where we segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
Our standard hire time frame will be 14 days from your delivery date. However, at the time you book the skip, you can choose a collection date that is ideal for you. Of course, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is fully loaded sooner than anticipated, let us know, and we will pick it up as soon as possible.
Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to understand that this may not be possible during busier periods. Once collected, your waste will be transported to a local waste transfer centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
How many different skip sizes are available?
This site offers a full variety of skip capacities to household and industrial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the various sizes you can choose from, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each skip is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags

If I need a skip on the road in Thurnscoe, will I need to have a permit?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only require a permit if it is placed on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit when your skip will be on your private property, such as a drive or inside your company premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate your skip on private property, it will save you a few pounds.
Who will deliver my skip?
As we provide a national skip service, we utilise a comprehensive network of verified companies. These can include small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be in on the day it is delivered. You can then be sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it. The same is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly if gates restrict access.
However, if that is not possible, you don’t need to stress. Simply tell us when you are placing your booking, and we will take care of the rest.
How do you order a skip?
Ordering a skip shouldn’t be hard. This is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible. First, type in your delivery address to see all the different skip sizes we can deliver to Thurnscoe. Pick which size you would like to hire, and confirm if it is going to be delivered on private property. Type in your details and then make payment using our secure payment platform.
As soon as your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can normally deliver skips to Thurnscoe the next working day when an order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking system will provide you with various delivery dates to pick from. So whether you need a skip delivered asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container that can be used to transport large amounts of waste materials. In most cases, these skips are hired for business purposes. Having said that, household customers can also hire them. You have to take into account the space they take up, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be hired for light-weight materials such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of dirt and stone.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Thurnscoe?
The price of getting a skip in Thurnscoe is determined by the size of skip you require. The least expensive option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you need a bigger skip, like an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you need to have a skip on the highway, since you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
The vast majority of containers can be supplied with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the container, especially with weighty materials, like garden soil and concrete, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, like furniture.
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are great for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furniture and broken baby toys to paving slabs and soil. With a capacity of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make several trips to your local recycling centre.
Is it okay to pile up the waste in my skip?
No. You can only pack your skip up to the level load line. Loading waste up above this line makes it dangerous to move, and you may be asked to take away the excess waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.
