Here Are A Few Guidelines When Hiring A Skip

There Are 3 Things You Need To Know Before Understanding How Much A Skip Will Cost You In Nottingham


What size skip do you need?

Skips come in different sizes, and hiring one largely depends on the amount of materials that will be placed in it. Another consideration is the size of the area where the skip will be placed. The skip industry still uses the cubic yard for measuring skips, so you might need to convert to the metric system.  The size of the most common skip in Nottingham is 8 cubic yards, and this size is ideal for both commercial and residential purposes.

Smaller skips, like the 2 yard mini skip are hired for domestic purposes, and it could hold approximately 25 to 35 bin bags.

  A large skip, like the 40 yard roll-on and roll-off skip is designed for big and bulky items like metal, furniture, and organic waste.

Skip prices

The price of hiring a skip in Dublin depends on its size, the duration, location, and the type of material that will be placed in it.  The quoted price for skips in Dublin does not usually include the price of the permits. Different local Dublin councils have varying fees for permits.  Hire costs are usually more expensive in London, and generally gets cheaper as you go further north of the United Kingdom.

Elimination of Rubbish

Rubbish put in a skip is usually sent to a waste transfer facility for recycling, landfills or energy re-distribution. If prohibited items are discovered in your skip, you may be charged with additional fees.

Will the skip fit on your driveway or will you need a council permit?

Waste contractors are required permits and licences in order to move waste and to place skips on a public access road. If a skip is placed on a public access road, the law in Nottingham also obliges the operator to have their name and contact information clearly printed on the side of the skip. Nottingham City councils also have specific requirements for the size of skips that should be placed on public roads.  Most Nottingham city councils only allow a minimum skip size of 8 yards on highways.  The Environment Agency is in charge

of giving out licences for skips to move waste. In hiring a skip, be aware whether the skip hire Nottingham company adheres to these regulations.  Ask for their council permits and waste carrier licence number.

Loading Regulations

Another regulation that a skip should adhere to is that they should have a level load.  A skip should not overflow with debris.  Even a little material poking out of the skip is not allowed.

Collection Process

When you a hire a skip, the duration of the permit usually lasts between 1 to 2 weeks.  Expect the skip to be collected within the time frame specified on the permit. The skip is usually collected in one to two weeks.  The longer it stays with the customers, the higher the rate will be. If the skip will be placed in a residents’ parking zone or any other controlled parking area, a parking suspension is needed. Skip lorries also require permits when they are parked on the street.
