Whitby Skip Hire FAQs
How do you order a skip?
Hiring a skip should not be hard. This is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter your delivery address to see all the different skip sizes we are able to deliver to Whitby. Pick which size you want to hire, and confirm whether it is going to be positioned on private property. Enter your information and make payment using our secure online payment platform.
Once your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
How long will it take to get a skip in Whitby?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your order prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will normally have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we try to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery spot, as failed deliveries will lead to a fee for the wasted trip.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are ideal for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and old baby toys to paving blocks and concrete. With a total capacity of about 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you needing to make several journeys to the local recycling centre.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a large skip used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are primarily for commercial use but can be hired by household customers as well. Having said that, you will want a good amount of room because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger in comparison to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.
As a result of the size, these containers should only be provided for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and bricks.
What happens to the rubbish in the skip?
The waste in the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling station. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machinery and by hand into numerous waste streams, including metal, plastics, concrete and wood. Processing the waste in this manner helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
The builder’s skip is probably the most frequent skip which is used across the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builder’s skip is perfect for most building work, which is where the name comes from.
The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip will be the largest option that can be used for heavy materials including garden soil, concrete, stone and gravel.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
No, you can not dispose of old electronic waste products in a skip. This can include items like laptops, hobs, tumble dryers, freezers and monitors. Electronic items can’t be disposed of in a skip as they can have dangerous materials and components.
Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.
Will you deliver to other areas in North Yorkshire?
Certainly, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skip sizes to locations across North Yorkshire, including Whitby, Yarm, Brotton and Pateley Bridge. So regardless of where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Whitby?
This depends on the size you want and if you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the cheapest choice. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings. To get an immediate quote for skip hire in Whitby, simply enter your postcode into the search box above.
How long can I hire a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, this gives you sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you do need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, in the event you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just tell us when you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
Generally speaking, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you need a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip with a drop door is primarily beneficial when hiring a big builder’s skip, since it enables you to wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, since they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Whitby?
Since we offer a UK-wide skip hire service, we utilise an extensive network of verified and approved businesses. These can vary from small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental expectations.
What types of waste can I get rid of in a skip?
This is one of the most popular questions people have about skip hire. The main thing to consider is that you can fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of waste which can come from garden work, construction work and property clearances.
Some of the most typical items that we see in our skips include dirt, wood, hedge trimmings, kitchen cabinets, sinks, and other household items.
There are some things that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This can include any electrical items (refrigerators, TVs or washing machines for example), tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. These are all considered hazardous waste, and therefore getting rid of them has to adhere to a completely different procedure to make sure they do not result in damage to the environment.
If I need a skip on the road in Whitby, will I need a permit?
In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you need your skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or residence, you will need to obtain authorisation from the local council in Whitby, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we will gladly organise this for you, therefore it’s one less thing to think about. The council does charge a fee for your license, plus you should know before booking that obtaining the permit can often take up to two working days.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Whitby, you will have several options to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest household clearances and DIY tasks.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also means they are suitable for household tidy ups including large objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for those with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These sizes are only suited to light materials, so they can’t be used to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
For further information regarding the different sizes offered, including dimensions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
Do I have to be home when the skip is delivered?
It is usually best if you can be there when anybody delivers anything to your house. You can then make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be located precisely where you need it.
The same applies for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Can I stack up waste in my skip?
Unfortunately not. You are only allowed to pack the skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste up above this line would make it unsafe to move, and you may 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 will make transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.
