Wetherby Skip Hire FAQs

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ensure your skip is provided on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.

Although we are not able to promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You have to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will usually incur a charge for the wasted trip.

Will a Wetherby skip hire company deliver my skip?

We utilise a network of both regional and national skip hire companies to supply skips to our customers in Wetherby and the rest of the country. Each of our partner skip companies are verified and evaluated to ensure they match our expectations for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you offer?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are substantial industrial size skips that are used primarily within the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for organisations that produce significant volumes of waste materials.

Is it okay to fill my skip higher than the level load mark?

You should not fill up a skip beyond the level load line. When you load it over the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be secure to transport, and you could be asked to take off any excess waste before it can be picked up.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The phrase builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The term stems from the fact that these are the most popular sizes that are hired by builders and tradespeople.

These substantial skips are suitable for numerous household and commercial projects. These are the biggest size skips that you can use for weighty builders waste including top soil, rubble and bricks.

How do I order a skip online?

We have created our booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to type in your address to see all the different skip sizes we are able to provide in Wetherby. Pick the best size to meet your requirements and provide the details of where and when you need the skip delivered. Then you can make payment through the secure payment platform, and we’ll send an email to confirm your order as soon as your order is done!

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Wetherby?

Ideally, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface area. When you are doing a domestic task, then your driveway is going to be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you have got to obtain a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Wetherby. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be issued for you. An additional fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.

How long can I hire a skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. In most cases, this will provide 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.

Obviously, in the event you finish with the skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just contact us when you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.

What can I put in the skip?

Before you hire a skip, it is essential to check that the type of rubbish you wish to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials must be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.

A few examples of waste types you may discard in a skip include household items like furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use a skip to dispose of building and demolition waste, including old bricks, soil, rubble, metals and concrete.

Examples of restricted items include electrical products, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be discarded separately from general rubbish.

Will the skip come with a drop down door?

Generally, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you want a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is primarily helpful when choosing a large builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini skips, as they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Do I have to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?

No, you don’t have to be at home when we deliver the skip. Providing we can access the place you need it located, we are able to manage it all.

For those who are not likely to be in, simply provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when booking the order. For instance, you might prefer the skip to be dropped on a particular area of the driveway. Alternatively, you may want to ensure the skip doesn’t obstruct access to your garage.

No matter what the case may be, tell us when you place your order, and then we will make sure your instructions are passed on to the lorry driver.

What is the cost of skip hire in Wetherby?

We will instantly display which sizes we offer in your location and how much each size will cost you to order.

What skip sizes can you offer?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Wetherby, you have various options to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard skip, often referred to as a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is great for small home clearances and DIY tasks.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also means they are ideal for house clear ups involving large objects like household furniture and beds.

We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even larger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only appropriate for light waste, so they can not be used to get rid of garden soil or rubble.

For further details about the different sizes offered, such as proportions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products must be kept separate from general waste to be recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electrical items like washing machines, televisions, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.

Where will the waste be taken to once the skip is collected?

When you have finished filling up your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre in or local to Wetherby where we sort the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

What size is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are fantastic for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furnishings and old toys to paving slabs and bricks. Having a volume of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you having to make several visits to the local recycling centre.

Other areas covered include South Kirkby, Silsden, Otley, Horbury, Castleford, Mirfield, Bradford and Wakefield.
