Skip Hire sizes

We hire out skips in various sizes at Norris Ashburton. Our skip sizes will fit with whatever you’re planning to do, from office clearing to home removal. If you need a small skip size like a 2 yard, or a big one of 12 yards, either way we have you covered. The skip sizes we have available are 2 yard, 4 yard, 6 yard, 8 yard, 10 yard, and 12 yard.

  • 4 Yard Skip Hire The 4 yard skip is also available for hire at Norris Ashburton. Its holding capacity is twice that of the 2 yard skip, and is just 0.90 meters in height. 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. It will fit well into your garden clearance, or do-it-yourself project plan.
  • 6 Yard Skip Hire This skip is ideal if you intend to do a home extension project or renovations on your office premises. The 6 yard skip is suitable for carrying builders waste and is available at Norris Ashburton. It’s perfect for stashing away heavy waste and bulky materials like soil or stones. With a width of about 1.8m by 2.3m, this skip can take about 75 to 95 black disposal bags, or up to 30 full barrow loads of building waste. This skip is probably the most used around your area.
  • 8 Yard Skip Hire We also hire out 8 yard skips, which are best used for extensive projects. It’s not that different from the 6 yard skip, but it has a larger holding capacity. The 8 yard skip is 1.9m by 3.4m wide, but surpasses the 6 yard skip in holding space by almost 20%. 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 The 10 skip yard is suitable for really big home removals and garden clearance. You can also hire this 2.1m by 3.6m wide skip from Norris Ashburton, for your commercial projects. It is big enough to hold up to 52 barrows filled with commercial waste, or 120–140 large bin bags at a time. It works perfectly for large scale site clearance, home removals, and other projects.
  • 12 Yard Skip Hire This skip is mainly for industrialized purposes. We have the 12 yard skip for hire here at Norris Ashburton for any large projects, like office or site clearance, and commercial projects that have large routine waste disposal needs. With a width of 2.5m by 4.0m, this skip is also long enough to contain 150–185 black disposable bags at any time. This skip has enough room for up to 62 full barrow loads of concrete, soil, and other building waste.

Targets for Waste Recycling

The government and the Environmental Agency have set new targets to be reached by all recycling agencies. We acknowledge these targets which include: The English and Welsh environment is protected and improved upon by the Environmental Agency. 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. It is also their mission to raise the quality of water, land, and air constantly. The Environmental Agency encourages the conservation of animals, land, and natural resources, and controls environmental pollution by implementing certain efforts. It doesn’t end there! The agency also puts effort in ensuring that people are up to date in environmental matters, raises waste removal standards and promotes the recycling of household products to significantly reduce the quantity of waste, among other objectives. 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. Concerning the targets set by the government, they have released a directive. It reflects the goals of reducing the quantity of waste sent to landfill spots in the country. The targets, as of the most recent year, include: The waste taken to landfill spots in the UK should be 35% of the amount taken in 1995 by 2015. The quantity of waste taken to landfill sites in the UK by 2013 should be 50% of what was taken in 1995. The quantity of waste taken to landfill sites in the UK by 2010 should be 75% of what was taken in 1995. The Waste Strategy of 2000 introduced the following targets to aid waste recovery and to make the landfill directive achievable: 40% of waste as at 2005 should be recovered, 45% of waste should be recovered by 2010, while as of 2015, 67% of waste should be recovered. The government published the natural recycling targets by the Waste Strategy 2000. Here are the targets: 33% of household waste should be composted or recycled by 2015. 30% of household waste should be composted or recycled by 2010. By 2005, 25% of household waste should be composted or recycled, while that of each local authority was 30% as in the same year. The government has issued a grant to help local authorities in more recycling, reducing waste, and for landfill diversion, known as the ” Waste Performance and Efficiency Grant”. Clinical waste, building materials, batteries, paper, printer cartridges, plastic, furniture, glass, oil, metal, electrical and electronics, vehicles, wood, clinical waste, and so on, and a few others were included in the list of products to be recycled. To be up to date on any new entry in the targets, especially in recent years, visit the Norris Ashburton office at Ashburton.

Other Skip Hire Pricing Factors

There a couple of factors that should be taken into consideration when hiring a skip. All these factors are well understood by us at Norris Ashburton and we are going to make them clear to you. Regional Pricing – every region has its own skip hire cost. A skip that would cost you £50 in London, for instance, may cost you less in Ashburton. How long you want to keep the skip will affect the price of the skip. The longer the period of time you intend to keep it, the more likely you are to pay a higher amount. Remembering as well that skip hire permits have a time frame and expiry dates. Limitations and Restrictions – you can’t always put a huge amount of weight in a skip just because it looks big. 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 Ashburton

At Norris Ashburton, we are aware of all the challenges that come with hiring the best skips, especially if you have to get a skip hire permit as well. Some of the issues with renting skips in Ashburton are local council laws, pedestrian only lanes, little or no space in front, small gardens, not enough parking space, narrow paths, congestion zones, double yellow lines, and red routes. We know that the growing population in Ashburton will mean a more difficult skip hiring process soon. However, you can make use of our rubbish removal services, instead of worrying about renting a skip and hustling for a skip hire permit.

Skip Hire Rules and regulations

The Control of Pollution Act of 1974 was replaced by a new waste licensing system in 1994 to regulate the deposit, recovery, and removal of “controlled waste”. Liquid or solid waste from industrial, commercial, and household processes are called controlled wastes. If you only do personal garden waste removal, however, you do not require the license. Anyone applying for the license has to show proof that they can handle it. The Waste Management Industry Training and Advisory Board (WAMITAB) certificate is often presented by people applying to own new sites, to show they are “technically competent”.

The duty of care for people who manage creating, bringing in, movement, storing, treating and removing controlled waste is specified in section 34 of the act. According to the Act, “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

Do you want to hire a skip for a construction project that will involve placing it on public land? Then you will need a skip hire permit. In regards to the land or space you would be placing the skip on that isn’t yours, you need a skip hire permit. This land could be a federal highway, government road, a street, or could be owned by a third party. A skip hire isn’t necessary when you have land to use and won’t be crossing into another person’s land or government owned land. You risk being fined or having the skip removed and seized if you do not ensure your skip doesn’t cross out of your own land and into someone’s space. 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. You can contact the council office to find out more about the pricing if you wish. We make it our business at Norris Ashburton to make skip hiring easy for you. We also provide skip hire permit procurement along with skip delivery to make the whole process stress free. Request an online quote and we will include the cost of getting a skip hire permit, which would be excluded, of course, if you have property to use. The permits we provide with skip hire services last as long as 14 days. You can reach us now on 020 8698 8000 if you need to know more details on skip hire permits and other waste disposal services.

Tested skips with certificate

If you’re hiring for the first time, you may have concerns on how safe and effective skips are when they are in use. At Norris Ashburton, we make sure you get the skip size you want, and make sure they are 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 and our experts will be available to answer all your queries. You can also come by our Ashburton office instead and the tested skip you want will be provided with certificate.

Prohibited Items

At Norris Ashburton, we accept various types of waste in our skips. There are products, however, that are prohibited from being put in our skips. We can just take them and get them treated for you – depending on how safe those materials are. Items such as medical waste, aerosols, electronic appliances, gas canisters, heavy duty batteries, television sets, and fluorescent light bulbs are not allowed in our skips.

Recycling Targets/Landfill Policy

Recycling targets were created by the Environmental Agency and government some time ago. We uphold these set recycling rules at Norris Ashburton and you can find them below: The mission of the Environmental Agency is to ensure the improvement and protection of the environment in England and Wales. Many government organisations and local authorities are in place to ensure recycling targets are met, and that areas needing environmental services receive the services they have available. This agency also works to regularly improve the quality of water, land and air. They set up systems to regulate environmental pollution, and also promote the preservation of plants, animals and other natural resources. 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 Environmental Agency can be contacted on 08708 506 506 or through their office in your locality, or their head office at Rio House, Waterside Drive, Almondsbury BS32 4UD. With respect to Government Targets, a landfill directive was released. It gives a recommended target on how much the amount of waste needs to be reduced for landfilling spots in the United Kingdom. Inclusions were made for landfills to only take treated waste from 2007. Find the targets below, starting from the most recent year: The quantity of waste allowed to be taken and used in landfills in the UK by 2015 shouldn’t exceed 35% of what was taken in 1995. No more that 50% of the waste retrieved to use for landfill sites in the UK should be retrieved by 2013. The quantity of waste taken to landfill sites in the UK by 2010 should be 75% of what was taken in 1995. Also added by the Waste Strategy 2000 were the following targets, to ensure 75% waste recovery and the achievement of the landfill directive, the following waste percentages have to be recovered: 67% in 2015, 45% in 2010 and 40% in 2005.

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

Household waste that is composted or recycled in 2015 should make up 33% of total waste. No less than 30% of household waste should be composted or recycled in 2010. By 2005, 25% of household waste should be composted or recycled – while that of each local authority was 30% as of the same year. To help the local authorities recycle more and reduce waste and for landfill diversions, a “Waste Performance and Efficiency Grant” was released by the government. Recyclable materials include the following and more: metal, building materials, batteries, paper, printer, cartridges, plastic, wood, clinical waste electricals and electronics, computers, and composting
