Wakefield Skip Hire FAQs

How many different skip sizes are there?

Skips come in a variety of different sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small household tasks.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a good option for shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant rubbish disposal job to handle, a builder’s skip could be the most suitable option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label indicates, these are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, including soil and rubble. However they can just as well be hired for household rubbish such as old furniture or bathroom suites.

We also deliver 10-16 cubic yard containers and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Can I have a skip which has a drop door?

Using a skip with a drop door makes loading rubbish into it a lot easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste materials like dirt or hardcore, which can then be loaded directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away big bulky items such as pieces of furniture easier as well.

Most skips can be provided with a drop door, however this can sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our best to provide this.

Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?

Electronic products including TVs, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste type and so can not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered products need to be segregated from other waste. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.

In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you would like the skip to be located on land outside of your company or house, you will have to secure permission from your local authority in Wakefield, which is known as a permit. If necessary, we would gladly arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for the skip license, and you should know before ordering that obtaining the licence can sometimes take up to two working days.

How big is a roll-on roll-off container?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container used to transport significant quantities of waste. Predominantly, these type of skips are hired for business applications. Having said that, household clients may also use them. It is essential to think about the space they occupy, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be utilised for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of garden soil and concrete.

Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?

You don’t need to be home when your skip is going to be delivered, but it can help. Being in when your skip is being delivered means that you can ensure the lorry driver can be given complete access and that the skip can be located exactly where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is hired to business property, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

Having said that, in the event you can’t be around at the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you place your order, and we will arrange things from there.

How long can I hire the skip for?

You can normally hire your skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, you have the choice of providing a preferred collection date when making your order.

Alternatively, just tell us when you have finished with your skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the following working day.

It could take a little bit longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, however we will always try to come as quickly as possible.

What will happen to the rubbish?

The contents of your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling facility. Here the waste will be sorted by machines and also by hand into numerous waste streams, including metal, plastics, hardcore and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.

Am I allowed to pile up the waste in my skip?

It is important to not overload a skip. You should not pass the level load mark shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it can be very unsafe to transport. This means that if you overfill your skip, you might be asked to remove the surplus rubbish. No matter how safe you think the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be hazardous and is therefore prohibited.

What size is a builders skip?

The builders skip is regarded as the common skip hired in the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builders skip is ideal for most building and construction projects, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip will be the largest size that you can use for hefty waste matter such as dirt, concrete, bricks and gravel.

Am I allowed to throw all kinds of waste in a skip?

Prior to hiring a skip, it is essential to ensure that the kind of waste materials you need to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials must be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

Some examples of waste types you could put in your skip include household goods like furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You can also use your skip to get rid of building and construction waste, like timber, top soil, stone, metals and gravel.

Some examples of restricted items include things like electronic items, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. These are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently have to be disposed of separately from any general rubbish.

Other areas covered include Knottingley, Meltham, Shipley, Hemsworth, Batley, Silsden, Mirfield and Guiseley.
