Skip Hire sizes

At Norris West-Reading, we have several sizes of skips for hire. Whether you’re planning an office clearing or a home removal, we have the perfect skip size to meet your needs. If you just need a small skip of 2 yards to carry out small DIY projects, or as big as a 12 yard skip for industrial purposes, we have the perfect size for you. We have skip sizes in 2 yard, 4 yard, 6 yard, 8 yard, 10 yard, and 12 yard.

  • 4 Yard Skip Hire You can also hire a 4 yard skip at Norris West-Reading. The 4 yard skip has two times the capacity of the 2 yard skip, at a height of 0.90 meters. It has more space for bigger materials, including electronic appliances, kitchen and bathroom refits, and even furniture, because it has a longer width of 1.5m by 2.5m. 45 to 50 black waste bags, and a little over 17 full barrow loads of waste, can fit into it. An excellent use for it would be DIY projects and garden clearance.
  • 6 Yard Skip Hire The 6 yard skip is a very useful tool to have for home extensions and office renovation projects. The 6 yard skip may be used to carry builders waste like soil and pavers stones, and is provided at Norris West-Reading. If you want to store heavy waste and bulky materials like soil or stones, the 6 yard skip is just perfect. It has a 1.8m by 3.2m width, wide enough to take about 75 to 95 black disposal bags, or 30 full barrow loads of building waste. You’ve most likely come across this skip in your area.
  • 8 Yard Skip Hire If your building project is quite big, the 8 yard skip we provide would be perfect. It’s similar to the 6 yard builders skip, but it can contain much more waste and refits. It’s around 1.9m by 3.4m wide, but it can take almost 20% more than what the 6 yard skip can. This skip can contain 100-115 full black waste bags with any issues, or 40 full barrow loads of slabs, soil, bricks and concrete. If you’re doing a massive home removal, the 8 yard skip would be a perfect choice.
  • 10 Yard Skip Hire This skip works perfectly in large garden clearance and home removals. If you’re handling a commercial project, the 2.1m by 3.6m wide skip is available for hire at Norris West-Reading. The 10 yard skip can contain up to 52 full barrow loads of commercial waste, or 120–140 large bin bags. This skip serves well when used for big building projects and home removals.
  • 12 Yard Skip Hire The 12 yard skip is ideal for industrialized projects. We have the 12 yard skip for hire here at Norris West-Reading for any large projects, like office or site clearance, and commercial projects that have large routine waste disposal needs. This skip has a height and a width of 2.5m by 4.0m, giving it enough space for about 150–185 large disposable bags at any time. It also has enough space for more than 62 barrow loads of building waste such as slabs, soil, and pavers stones.

Environmental Agency Recycling Targets

The government and the Environmental Agency have set new targets to be reached by all recycling agencies. Norris West-Reading experts recognize these targets, which are: The Environmental Agency’s duty is to protect and better the environment of England and Wales. There are several government organisations and local authorities they work with to ensure that their targets are met, and that other environmental services they have to offer get to the areas where they are needed. The quality of water, air, and land is continuously improved by the Environmental Agency. They control environmental pollution, and also encourage the conservation of animals, plants and other natural resources by implementing certain efforts towards these goals. That’s not all! Among other things, the body enlightens the general populace on environmental issues, promotes the recycling of household products to decrease their piling up in large quantities, and educates on raising the standards of waste removal. Get in touch with the Environmental Agency office in your location, or you can find the head office in Bristol Rio House, Waterside Drive, Almondsbury BS32 4UD. Telephone: 08708 506 506.

By 2010, 30% of household waste should be composted or recycled. Composting and recycling should be carried out on 25% of household waste as of 2005, while each local authority was 30% in the same year. To assist local authorities in recycling more waste, reducing waste, and for landfill diversion, the government issued a ” Waste Performance and Efficiency Grant”.

Other Skip Hire Pricing Factors

There a couple of factors that should be taken into consideration when hiring a skip. At Norris West-Reading, we understand these factors and will briefly explain them to you. Regional Pricing – the cost of hiring a skip differs from region to region. You may get a skip for £50 in London and get the same skip for £20 in West-Reading. Pricing is also influenced by how long you want to keep the skip, the more time you want it, the higher the cost would likely be. Also bearing in mind that skip hire permits only last for a set period of time as well. Limitations and Restrictions – no matter the size of a skip, it will still have a weight limit. You need to know about what limitations or restrictions your skip hire service provider may have. Ask if there are any items that aren’t allowed in the skip and stick to the restrictions if there are, so you won’t be sanctioned or fined.

Issues with renting skips in West-Reading

We know at Norris West-Reading that hiring the right skip can be exhausting- more so if it involves getting a skip hire permit. Renting a skip in West-Reading may come with issues such as local council laws, pedestrian only lanes, narrow paths, red routes, small parking space, congestion zones, small gardens, and double yellow lines. With the rising population in West-Reading, skip hiring will soon be a more challenging feat. You can avoid the stress of hiring skips and getting permits by hiring our waste disposal service instead.

Skip Hire Rules and regulations

A new waste licensing system was put in place in 1994 to replace the Control of Pollution Act of 1974 on the regulation of deposits, recovery, and removal of “controlled waste”. Controlled wastes are wastes from industrial, commercial, and household processes in solid or liquid form. People who only do waste disposals from personal gardens were not included in getting the license. Proof of fitness to hold the license determines if it will be granted. Applications for new site ownership need to be accompanied by the Waste Management Training and Advisory Board (WAMITAB) certificate as proof of “technical competence”.

In section 34 of the act, the duty of care for all those who make, bring in, move, treat, store or remove controlled waste is available. The Act stated as follows: “any escape or waste must be avoided, waste can only be moved to an authorized person, the waste being transferred should go with a written description or you will be penalized.” Waste disposal methods are regulated by special waste regulations 1996 and the hazardous waste regulations 2005.

Skip Hire Permits

A skip hire permit is a must have for skips hired for construction projects with the intention of placing them on any public land. Using land that is not yours to place the skip means you must have a skip hire permit. This land could be a federal highway, government road, a street, or could be owned by a third party. You can use your own land or space without a skip hire permit if you have it, only ensuring you don’t cross into land that isn’t yours. Intruding on another person’s land, privacy or space may get you fined, or the skip may be removed and seized. You can get a skip hire permit for £20, although the skip size and issuing council would also affect the cost. Some skip hire permits cost higher than £20, possibly £60, £80, and up to £100. The council office is a good place to get all the pricing details you need. At Norris West-Reading we feel duty bound to ensuring you hire a skip without stress. Why bother then with getting a skip hire permit when we can get it done for you, along with delivering the skip you hire? When you request an online quote, we include the cost of getting a permit, which will not be necessary if you have land of your own to place the skip in. The permits we provide with skip hire services last as long as 14 days. Contact us today on 020 8698 8000 to find out more about skip hire permits and other services we have made available for you.

Tested skips with certificate

For first time skip hires, the worry is often on the safety and effectiveness of the skip during use. At Norris West-Reading, we meet your skip size requirements and supply skips that have been tested with certificates. Whatever kind of skip we deliver to you, closed or open, it will come with proof of quality and efficiency. Call us today on 020 8698 8000 if you have any concerns, and our experts will answer your questions. Alternatively, you can visit us at our office in West-Reading and we will make the tested skip of your choice available – with certificate.

Prohibited Items

We allow many different kinds of waste in our skips at Norris West-Reading. But there are restrictions on certain products, and they are not allowed in our skips. We can provide you with treatment services for materials like that, depending on how safe they are. The prohibited items include medical waste, automotive oils and fluids, car tyres, plasterboard, gas canisters, aerosols, television sets, air conditioning units, refrigerators, heavy duty batteries, and fluorescent light bulbs.

Recycling Targets/Landfill Policy

There are recycling targets put in place by the Environmental Agency and government. We at Norris West-Reading acknowledge these targets and here they are: The aim of the Environmental Agency is to see to the improvement and protection of the environment in England and Wales. There are several government organisations and local authorities they work with to ensure that their targets are met, and other environmental services they have to offer get to areas where they are needed. The agency aspires to ensure regular improvements in the quality of land, air and water as well. They work towards the control of pollution in the environment and encourage the protection of natural resources like plants and animals. It doesn’t end there! The body educates the public on environmental matters, like better waste removal standards, by promoting the recycling of household waste to reduce how much waste they have. The agency can be contacted on 08 708 506 506, or by their office in your region. You can also visit their head office at Rio House, Waterside Drive, Almondsbury BS32 4UD. A landfill directive was released to address Government Targets. It specifies the targets needed to lower the quantity of waste removed to landfill areas in the UK. It stated also that from 2007, landfills should only accept treated waste. The targets are as follows from the most recent year: The quantity of waste taken to landfill sites in the UK by 2015 should be 35% of what was taken in 1995. In 2013, only 50% of the waste collected for filling UK landfill sites in 1995 should be collected. The quantity of waste allowed to be taken and used for landfills in the UK by 2010 shouldn’t exceed 75% of what was taken in 1995. In addition to that, the Waste Strategy 2000 introduced the following targets, to recover waste and meet the landfill directive: 67% of the waste must be recovered by 2015, 45% must be recovered by 2010, and 40% must be recovered by 2005.

The government published, in the Waste Strategy 2000, the following natural recycling targets:

No less than 33% of household waste should be composted or recycled in 2015. No less than 30% of household waste should be composted or recycled in 2010. Household waste that is composted or recycled, in 2015, should be 25%, while the local authorities had a 30% target. The government released a ” Waste Performance and Efficiency Grant” to assist in the recycling and reduction of waste and landfill diversions. A list of materials that can be recycled include: wood, vehicles, composting, clinical waste, building materials, batteries, paper, printer cartridges, plastic, furniture, glass, oil, metal, electricals and electronics, computers, and a few others.

The Norris West-Reading office at West-Reading is open to help you stay aware of any updates on the targets for years to come. We are also available on 020 8698 8000 and have experts on ground to answer any questions you have.
