Skip Hire sizes

Our skips are available for hire in different sizes. Our skip sizes will fit with whatever you’re planning to do, from office clearing to home removal. We have skip sizes as small as 2 yards for small DIY projects and as big as 12 yards for industrial projects. Our skips are in sizes 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 Moretonhampstead. With a height of 0.90 meters, the 4 yard skip is able to accommodate twice the amount of the 2 yard skip. It’s around 1.5m by 2.5m wide, and is perfect for large items like home furniture, appliances, electronics, and bathroom and kitchen refits. It can take as many as 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 The 6 yard skip is a very useful tool to have for home extensions and office renovation projects. At Norris Moretonhampstead, we provide the 6 yard skip to carry any builders waste. It works excellently for stashing away heavy waste and materials such as soil and stones. It’s around 1.8m by 3.2m wide, and can hold between 75 to 95 black bin bags, or 30 full barrow loads of building waste. This is pretty much the most popular skip you will find in your area.
  • 8 Yard Skip Hire The 8 yard skip, which we have for hire, is suitable for very big projects such as home extensions. The only difference between the 8 yard and 6 yard skip is that it can contain more items. It’s around 1.9m by 3.4m wide, but it can take almost 20% more than what the 6 yard skip can. 100-115 full black waste bags can be stashed into it safely, or 40 barrow loads of paving stones, bricks, concrete, slabs and soil. For large home removals, this skip is the ideal choice.
  • 10 Yard Skip Hire The 10 yard skip is the one you want if you’re doing a large scale removal or garden clearance. If you’re handling a commercial project, the 2.1m by 3.6m wide skip is available for hire at Norris Moretonhampstead. It is big enough to hold up to 52 barrows filled with commercial waste, or 120–140 large bin bags at a time. This skip serves well when used for big building projects and home removals.
  • 12 Yard Skip Hire This skip is suitable for industrial processes. If you need a skip large enough to be used for large scale waste disposal during site or office clearance or commercial projects, the 12 skip yard we have for hire at Norris Moretonhampstead is be perfect. 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. Over 62 barrow loads of building waste such as slabs, concrete, and soil can safely fit into this skip.

Other Skip Hire Pricing Factors

When hiring a skip, some factors will be important and need to be thought about and considered properly. All these factors are well understood by us at Norris Moretonhampstead, and we are going to briefly help you understand as well. 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 Moretonhampstead. The length of time you want the skip for will also affect its pricing; the longer you want it for, the higher the cost. Not also forgetting that skip hire permits have a duration too. Limitations and Restrictions – skips usually have weight limits even with their sizes. You need to know about what limitations or restrictions your skip hire service provider may have. 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 Moretonhampstead

At Norris Moretonhampstead, we understand that getting the perfect skip to hire can be a herculean task – especially with the difficulties that comes with getting a skip hire permit. Narrow paths, local council laws, small gardens, double yellow lines, red routes, pedestrian only lanes, congestion zones, limited space in front, and narrow paths are the issues which usually come up with skip renting in Moretonhampstead. At the rate at which Moretonhampstead is growing in population, skip hiring will become more and more difficult. You don’t have to worry about skip hiring and acquiring a permit, we can provide waste disposal services instead.

Skip Hire Rules and regulations

For “controlled waste” deposit, recovery and removal regulation, a new waste licensing system replaced the 1974 Control of Pollution Act in 1994. Controlled waste refers to liquid or solid industrial, commercial, and household wastes. However, people who are just disposing of waste from their personal garden were exempted from the need of the license. Anyone applying for the license has to show proof that they can handle it. Applications for new site ownership need to be accompanied by the Waste Management Training and Advisory Board (WAMITAB) certificate as proof of “technical competence”.

Those involved in the creation, bringing in, conveyance, storage, treatment or removal of controlled waste have their own duty of care in section 34 of the Act. It stated that “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 regulation is handled by special waste regulations 1996 and the hazardous waste regulations 2005.

Skip Hire Permits

To place a skip for a construction project on any public land, you 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. 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. 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. With £20, you can get a skip hire permit, but charges may differ because of the skip size or council who issue the permit. There are also skip hire permits for a lot more than £20, including £60, £80 and £100. Any questions you have on pricing can be answered at the local council office. At Norris Moretonhampstead, we consider it our responsibility to ease your skip hire process. Why bother then with getting a skip hire permit when we can get it done for you, along with delivering the skip you hire?

Recycling Targets/Landfill Policy

There are recycling targets put in place by the Environmental Agency and government. We at Norris Moretonhampstead 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 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 Environmental Agency also endeavors to make sure land, air and water are constantly improved in terms of quality. They have efforts in place for environmental pollution control and to encourage the conservation of nature. It doesn’t stop at that! They also provide enlightenment for people on better waste control methods such as recycling household waste. 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 states how much the quantity of waste need to be lowered for the purpose of landfills in certain areas of the UK. It added as well that landfills from 2007 should only take waste that has been treated. 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.

33% of household waste has to be composted or recycled in 2015. 30% of household waste must be composted or recycled as of 2010. 25% of household waste must be composted or recycled as of 2005, even though local authorities had a 30% target in 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. Here is list of materials that can be recycled: plastic, electricals and electronics, computers, composting, wood, clinical waste, metal, building materials, batteries, paper, printer, cartridges and a lot of others.
