Skip Hire sizes

There are a wide range of skip sizes for hire here at Norris Great-Torrington. It doesn’t matter if it is an office clearing or home removal you have planned, we have the right skip sizes for everything. 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. The skip sizes we have available are 2 yard, 4 yard, 6 yard, 8 yard, 10 yard, and 12 yard.

  • 4 Yard Skip Hire Norris Great-Torrington also hires out 4 yard skips. The 4 yard skip has two times the capacity of the 2 yard skip, at a height of 0.90 meters. Its width of 1.5m by 2.5m allows space for larger products, such as kitchen and bathroom refits, appliances, electronics, and furniture. It has enough space for 45 to 50 black waste bags, and a little over 17 full barrow loads of waste. If you are thinking of DIY projects or garden clearance, this would be a splendid choice.
  • 6 Yard Skip Hire If you wish to carry out house extension projects, or some renovations in your business premises, this is probably the most ideal skip for you to hire. Norris Location has 6 yard skips to move builders waste such as concrete, slabs and soil at your disposal. It is an ideal storage option for materials and waste like stones and soil. It has enough space for 75 to 95 black bin bags, or 30 full barrow loads of builders waste due to its width of 1.8m by 2.3m. 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. The only difference between the 8 yard and 6 yard skip is that it can contain more items. It has a width of 1.9m by 3.4m, but has a greater holding capacity than the 6 yard skip by almost 20%. 100-115 full black waste bags can be stashed into it safely, or 40 barrow loads of paving stones, bricks, concrete, slabs and soil. It serves perfectly for extensive home removals.
  • 10 Yard Skip Hire For very big home removals or garden clearance, it is recommended to go for the 10 yard skip. Norris Great-Torrington has the 2.1m by 3.6m wide 10 yard skip available for hire for commercial projects. The 10 yard skip can contain up to 52 full barrow loads of commercial waste, or 120–140 large bin bags. For larger building projects, home removals, and garden or site clearance, this is the skip to use.
  • 12 Yard Skip Hire The 12 yard skip is ideal for industrialized projects. We have the 12 yard skip for hire here at Norris Great-Torrington for any large projects, like office or site clearance, and commercial projects that have large routine waste disposal needs. 150-185 black waste bags can fit into this large 2.3 by 4.0m skip at any time.

Other Skip Hire Pricing Factors

Skip hire pricing factors need to be well considered before hiring a skip. All these factors are well understood by us at Norris Great-Torrington and we are going to make them clear to you. Regional Pricing – every region has its own skip hire cost. You might get a skip at £50 in London, for instance, and get the same skip size for £20 in Great-Torrington. Time duration on the hire is another factor that affects pricing, when you want to keep a skip for a long period of time, you’ll have to pay more. Remembering as well that skip hire permits have a time frame and expiry dates. Limitations and Restrictions – skips usually have weight limits even with their sizes. Ask about restrictions on the skip you’re hiring from your service provider. You may get fined or sanctioned if you put products in the skip that are not allowed, which is why you need to find out if there are any such products.

Issues with renting skips in Great-Torrington

The process of hiring a skip is often difficult, especially if you want to get a skip hire permit as well. We know about all of these difficulties at Norris Great-Torrington. Some of the issues with renting skips in Great-Torrington 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 are also aware of the increasing population in Great-Torrington, which will mean increased difficulty in skip hiring in the near future. Our waste management services are readily available if you wish to skip the whole task of skip hiring.

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 waste refers to liquid or solid industrial, commercial, and household wastes. People who only do waste disposals from personal gardens were not included in getting the license. To be granted the license, whoever is applying is required to confirm their ability to hold it. If an applicant wishes to own a new site, they have to show how “technically competent” they are by possessing the (WAMITAB) certificate, this is the the Waste Management Industry Training and Advisory Board.

People who create, bring in, convey, store, treat, or remove controlled waste were given a new duty of care in section 34 of the Act. The following was stated in 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.” There are also the special waste regulations 1996 and the hazardous waste regulations 2005, that regulates how waste should be disposed of.

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. Using land that is not yours to place the skip means you must have a skip hire permit. It could be land that belongs to a third party, a federal highway, government road, or along the street. However, if you have a piece of land or property to place the skip in, and you are sure that it won’t intrude on council land or someone else’s property, then you won’t have to get a skip permit. Your skip could be removed and seized, however, if it extends into land that isn’t yours or that of those involved in your project, you even be fined. For as low as £20 you can get a skip hire permit – depending on the size of the skip and the council that is issuing the permit to you at the time. There are skip hire permits that may cost as much as £60, £80, and up to £100 sometimes. Any questions you have on pricing can be answered at the local council office. At Norris Great-Torrington, we consider it our responsibility to ease your skip hire process. We also provide skip hire permit procurement along with skip delivery to make the whole process stress free. The cost of getting a skip hire permit is often added to the online quote you request , although this won’t matter if you have space or land for keeping the skip. We can get skip hire services along with permits that have up to 14 day validity. We are always available on 020 8698 8000 to provide you with details on skip hire and other waste disposal services we have.

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 Great-Torrington, we make sure you get the skip size you want, and make sure they are tested with certificates. So, if the skip you require is a closed or open one, we can be trusted to provide it along with proof of quality and efficiency. Give us a call on 020 8698 8000, we always have experts available to provide answers to your questions. Another option is to come by our Great-Torrington office and we will provide the tested skip you want with certificate.

Prohibited Items

Several waste types are allowed in our skips at Norris Great-Torrington. However, we have restrictions on the kind of items that can go in our skips. We can just take them and get them treated for you – depending on how safe those materials 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

A number of targets for recycling were set by the Environmental Agency and government. We recognize these recycling targets at Norris Great-Torrington and here they are: The Environmental Agency is on a mission to make sure the environment in England and Wales is improved and protected. There are many government organisations and local authorities that have the duty of making sure these targets are achieved and the services they have available get to the environments that need them. The agency aspires to ensure regular improvements in the quality of land, air and water as well. They implement steps that aim to control pollution in the environment, encouraging efforts towards preserving natural resources as well. 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 gives a recommended target on how much the amount of waste needs to be reduced for landfilling spots in the United Kingdom. It stated also that from 2007, landfills should only accept treated waste. From the most recent year, the targets are the following: 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. The quantity of waste taken to landfill sites in the UK by 2013 should be 50% of what was taken in 1995. Only 75% of the waste taken in 1995 should be taken for landfill sites in the UK in 2010. 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:

33% of household waste has to be composted or recycled in 2015. Household waste that is composted or recycled in 2010 should be at 30%. 25% of household waste has to be composted or recycled in 2005, although local authority was 30% in that 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. 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.
