Todmorden Skip Hire FAQs
What will happen to my waste once the skip is collected?
Once you have finished filling up your skip, we come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre in or local to Todmorden where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
Can I load my skip higher than the top?
It is vital not to overload a skip. You can not pass the level load line that is shown along the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it becomes very hazardous to transport. This means that if you overload the skip, you might be asked to remove the excess waste. No matter how safe you feel the skip to be, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. That is hazardous and is therefore prohibited.
What is classed as being a builders skip?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most frequently hired for building and construction projects. There are usually two sizes that may be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to get rid of significant quantities of construction and demolition waste materials, such as soil, concrete and rock.
Although they are branded a builders skip, these can be used for multiple other domestic and business waste disposal jobs.
How do I order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know if the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or council property (such as the street). Then, choose the day you want the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Todmorden on the date you have selected.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Getting a skip with a drop door can make filling waste into the skip much easier. This is particularly true with hefty waste like garden soil or hardcore, which can then be loaded into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up big bulky items such as furniture much easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, although this will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a door is required, and we will do our very best to provide this.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Todmorden?
If possible, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface. For anyone who is doing a household task, then your drive will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. Having said that, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public land, you will need to have a permit from your local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be dropped on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Todmorden. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be granted for you. An additional fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your skip.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is delivered?
It usually is a good idea to be in when anybody delivers something to your home. That allows you to ensure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it.
The same goes for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, should it be unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
You are allowed to throw a wide array of waste in the skip. This can include timber, ceramic tiles, metal or concrete from a house clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, dirt and stone from garden jobs are allowed also. Units from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also go in a skip.
There are, however, some items that you cannot put in a skip due to the possible environmental or health risks they could trigger.
You are unable to throw in your fridge, television or old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. All of these items contain hazardous components in one kind or another. They should be discarded separately from your general waste.
If you require hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to organise an independent collection for this material. Please get in touch for more information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
How quickly can you deliver a skip in Todmorden?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve requested. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your order before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver, we endeavour to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery location, as unsuccessful deliveries can lead to a charge for the wasted trip.
Will a Todmorden skip hire company deliver my skip?
Since we provide a UK-wide skip hire service, we use a comprehensive network of approved businesses. These vary from small family-run skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental expectations.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We can provide a wide range of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for small DIY tasks and household clearances. A common option for larger jobs, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Todmorden companies which produce a large volume of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.
If you require some help choosing which skip size you require, check out our handy skip size comparison.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a massive skip that can be used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These containers are mainly for business use but can be hired by domestic customers also. However, you will require plenty of room because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger when compared to the typical skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, roll-on roll-off containers should only be used for light materials such as plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not suitable for disposing of soil and rubble.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
Electronic objects including tv sets, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste and therefore can not be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric items should be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly manner.
Will you deliver to other areas in West Yorkshire?
Indeed, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skip sizes to locations throughout West Yorkshire, such as Todmorden, Leeds, Huddersfield and Castleford. So wherever you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
How long can I keep the skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to a fortnight. In most cases, this provides you with plenty of time to fill the skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, in the event you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know once you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Todmorden?
Our goal is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in Todmorden. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip that you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you want to have the skip positioned on the highway or other council property, you will also need to factor in the added price of the skip permit.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest skip available from skip companies and is perfect for small DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies provide a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Other areas covered include Leeds, Huddersfield, Castleford, Keighley, Dewsbury, Baildon, Ossett and Meltham.
