Withernsea Skip Hire FAQs

What is a builders skip?

The name builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. They are the largest containers that can be used to discard substantial building and demolition materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or garden soil.

A builder’s skip is great for a wide range of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning out the loft, these large skips tend to be the most affordable choice available.

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

The roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a huge skip that can be used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These skips are mainly for commercial use but can be hired by household customers also. However, you will require a lot of room as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger when compared to the typical skip you will see on the roadside.

Due to the size, RORO skips should only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suitable for disposing of soil and rubble.

Am I allowed to throw electrical products in the skip?

Electric powered products like tv sets, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste type and so cannot be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical goods have to be segregated from other materials. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.

What size is the mini skip?

If you are looking for a low-cost skip to dispose of some household rubbish, a mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to deal with many tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be situated on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

Although most often chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.

What will happen to the waste?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into several different waste streams, which includes wood, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

The normal hire period will be 14 days from the delivery date. However, at the time you order the skip, you can provide a collection date that will work for you. Obviously, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is fully loaded sooner than anticipated, contact us, and we will collect it as soon as possible.

We can normally be out to get your skip within 48 hours. But, it is important to bear in mind this may not be possible during busy periods. Once collected, your waste will be taken to a local waste recycling facility, where it will be processed and sorted.

What waste am I allowed to put in my skip?

  • Home furniture
  • Tree trimmings
  • Garden soil
  • Stone
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Cabinets and units

Many waste types are usually permitted, so whether you want to discard furniture, plastics, timber or textiles, we can normally take your rubbish away.

The volume and items you put in the skip can vary based on which size skip you chosen. All skips have a weight limit for safety. So if you want to dispose of garden soil and gravel, for example, the biggest size you would be permitted to use will be the 8 cubic yard skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?

There are a few waste items that you will not be allowed to put in your skip. The main reason for this is that these goods incorporate hazardous elements that may cause harm to the environment. They can also be hazardous to human health, and so they must be discarded separately under UK legislation.

Examples of the goods that are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?

You don’t need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered, however it does help. Being home whenever the skip arrives means that you can ensure the delivery driver is given complete access and that your skip can be placed exactly where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is hired to your company premises, we will appreciate your help during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

However, for those who can’t be available for the delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you place your order, and then we will arrange things from there.

Which size skips have a door?

For anyone who is choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is designed for disposing of heavy building and demolition materials, as it can be walked in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop down door, though these are generally less common. The reason being these sizes are typically small enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to make sure a skip which has a drop door is provided.

Is it ok to fill the skip above level load line?

Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it dangerous to transport, and you will then be asked to remove any contents above the level load line. This means you are unable to use sheets of wood, doors or any other item, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal responsibility to ensure that containers are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please be sure to choose the correct sized skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you are uncertain which size you need. We would be happy to help.
