Skip Hire sizes

We have skips for hire in different sizes at Norris Southend. It doesn’t matter if it is an office clearing or home removal you have planned, we have the right skip sizes for everything. Whatever your project we have a skip 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 The 4 yard skip is also available for hire at Norris Southend. The 4 yard skip is two times bigger in holding space than the 2 yard skip, and is 0.90meters long. 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. It is big enough to hold 45 to 50 black waste bags, and more than 17 barrow loads of waste. An excellent use for it would be DIY projects and garden clearance.
  • 6 Yard Skip Hire This skip is ideal if you intend to do a home extension project or renovations on your office premises. At Norris Southend, we provide the 6 yard skip to carry any builders waste. 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. This is pretty much the most popular skip you will find in your area.
  • 8 Yard Skip Hire We also provide an 8 yard skip for hire for much larger building projects like home extension 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%. 100-115 black disposable bags can fit well into the 8 yard skip, as can 40 barrow loads of soil, concrete, and other builders waste. 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. You can also hire this 2.1m by 3.6m wide skip from Norris Southend, for your commercial projects. It has a large holding capacity and can contain about 120–140 large disposal bags or 52 full barrow loads of commercial waste at once. It works perfectly for large scale site clearance, home removals, and other projects.
  • 12 Yard Skip Hire This is more like a small industrial skip. We have the 12 yard skip for hire here at Norris Southend for any large projects, like office or site clearance, and commercial projects that have large routine waste disposal needs. This skip is around 2.5m by 4.0m wide, with a height that can hold as much as 150-185 black bin bags of waste at once. Over 62 barrow loads of building waste such as slabs, concrete, and soil can safely fit into this skip.

The agency also seeks to better the quality of water, land, and air continuously. The agency strives to control environmental pollution and promote the conservation of animals, land, and natural resources. There are still other things!

Other Skip Hire Pricing Factors

When hiring a skip, some factors will be important and need to be thought about and considered properly. We at Norris Southend understand these skip hire pricing factors, and we have decided to give you a brief explanation of each of them. Regional Pricing – the cost of hiring a skip differs from region to region. A skip priced at £50 in London, for example, may be priced at £20 in Southend. The length of time you want the skip for will also affect its pricing; the longer you want it for, the higher the cost. Keeping in mind there are time limits on skip hire permits too. Limitations and Restrictions – every skip can only take a certain amount of weight regardless of their size. 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 Southend

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 Southend. Renting a skip in Southend 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 Southend, skip hiring will soon be a more challenging feat. Alternative to kip hiring and getting a hire permit, our waste disposal services are available for your use.

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”. Controlled wastes are wastes from industrial, commercial, and household processes in solid or liquid form. However, people who are just disposing of waste from their personal garden were exempted from the need of the license. In order to have the license, the person applying has to show that they are fit to hold 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”.

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.” 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

You need a skip hire permit if you want to hire a skip for a construction project and will have to place it on public land. Using land that is not yours to place the skip means you must have a skip hire permit. These lands include federal highways and government roads, third party owned lands, and land along streets. 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. But, if you place a skip in a position that infringes on the privacy of another person not involved in your project, the skip might be removed and seized, or you could even be fined. Depending on your location and the size of the skip involved, £20 should be able to get you a skip hire permit. There are also skip hire permits that cost £60, £80, and even as much as £100. The council office is a good place to get all the pricing details you need. We want to ensure you have a much easier skip hire process at Norris Southend. We can get you a skip hire permit and deliver the skip you hire to save you stress. Our online quotes also include skip hire permit costs, which doesn’t matter if you have your own land or space on which to place the skip. The permits we have available alongside our skip hire services can serve for up to 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.

The Environmental Agency and government have been setting recycling targets for some time now. These targets are upheld by us at Norris Southend and here they are: The Environmental Agency is on a mission to make sure the environment in England and Wales is improved and protected. A lot government organisations and local authorities are in place to make sure they reach their targets, and that areas that need environmental services get the ones they have to offer.

With respect to Government Targets, a landfill directive was released. It states that targets for lowering the quantity of waste taken to landfill spots in the United Kingdom. It also added, from 2007, that landfills shouldn’t take waste that hasn’t been treated. The targets are as follows from the most recent year: In 2015, only 35% of the waste collected for filling UK landfill sites in 1995 should be collected. Only 50% of the waste taken in 1995 should be taken for landfill sites in the UK in 2013. The quantity of waste taken to landfill sites in the UK by 2010 should be 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 natural recycling targets were published in the Waste Strategy 2000 by the government. These targets were:

By 2005, 25% of household waste should be composted or recycled – while that of each local authority was 30% as of the same year. A ” Waste Performance and Efficiency Grant” was issued by the government to assist local authorities in more recycling, reduction of waste, and landfill diversions.
