Skip Hire sizes

Our skips are available for hire in different sizes. It doesn’t matter if it is an office clearing or home removal you have planned, we have the right skip sizes for everything. We have skip sizes as small as 2 yards for small DIY projects and as big as 12 yards for industrial projects. The other sizes we have include: the 2 Yard Skip, 4 Yard Skip, 6 Yard Skip, 8 Yard Skip, 10 Yard Skip, and the 12 Yard Skip.

  • 4 Yard Skip Hire The 4 yard skip is also available for hire at Norris Westwell. The 4 yard skip is two times bigger in holding space than the 2 yard skip, and is 0.90meters long. 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. 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 This skip works perfectly for home extensions and office premises renovation projects. The 6 yard skip may be used to carry builders waste like soil and pavers stones, and is provided at Norris Westwell. It works excellently for stashing away heavy waste and materials such as soil and stones. 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 The 8 yard skip, which we have for hire, is suitable for very big projects such as home extensions. 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. It has enough room for up to 100-115 full black bin bags, or 40 barrow loads of builders waste materials. It is ideal for large home removals as well.
  • 10 Yard Skip Hire The 10 skip yard is suitable for really big home removals and garden clearance. Norris Westwell has the 2.1m by 3.6m wide 10 yard skip available for hire for 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. If you’re handling a big building project or home removal, this skip would be the best choice.
  • 12 Yard Skip Hire The 12 yard skip is ideal for industrialized projects. The 12 yard skip can serve for projects like site clearances, office clearances, and commercial projects that will require large amounts of waste disposal at once, and is available for hire at Norris Westwell. 150-185 black waste bags can fit into this large 2.3 by 4.0m skip at any time. It also has enough space for more than 62 barrow loads of building waste such as slabs, soil, and pavers stones.

Waste Recycling Targets

All waste management agencies now have some recycling targets to meet, which are set by the Environmental Agency and the government. Norris Westwell experts recognize these targets, which are: The English and Welsh environment is protected and improved upon by the Environmental Agency. To better meet these targets and provide other environmental services to areas in need of them, the agency partners with several other organisations and local authorities. The Environmental Agency continuously strives to improve water, land, and air quality. They control environmental pollution, and also encourage the conservation of animals, plants and other natural resources by implementing certain efforts towards these goals. There are still other things! The Environmental Agency is determined to educate the people on anything to do with the environment, improve waste disposal standards, and improve the recycling of household items in order to reduce their quantity. With the telephone number – 08708 506 506, you can contact the Environmental Agency head office in Bristol at Rio House, Waterside Drive, Almondsbury BS32 4UD, or contact their office in your region. A landfill directive has been released in relation to Government Targets. The directive sets out all the targets to be reached, which will see a decrease of the quantity of waste taken to different landfill spots in the United Kingdom. The targets, as of the most recent year, include: The quantity of waste taken to landfill sites in the UK by 2015 should be 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. The waste taken to landfill spots in the UK should be 75% of the amount taken in 1995 by 2010. The Waste Strategy of 2000 introduced the following targets to aid waste recovery and to make the landfill directive achievable: 45% of waste is to be recovered as of 2010, while 67% and 40% of waste should be recovered as of 2015 and 2005 respectively. The government published the natural recycling targets by the Waste Strategy 2000. The following are the targets: The target projects that, as of 2015, 33% of household waste should either be recycled or composted. 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. 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”. 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, electrical and electronics, computers, and various others.

Other Skip Hire Pricing Factors

Some factors are important to look into when hiring a skip. We understand all of these factors on skip hiring pricing at Norris Westwell, and we have taken it upon ourselves to briefly help you understand as well. Regional Pricing – every region has its own skip hire cost. If you get a skip for £50 in London, for example, the same size might cost you just £20 in Westwell. The length of time you want the skip for will also affect its pricing; the longer you want it for, the higher the cost. Remembering as well that skip hire permits have a time frame and expiry dates. Limitations and Restrictions – every skip can only take a certain amount of weight regardless of their size. Ask about restrictions on the skip you’re hiring from your service provider. Also, make enquiries about products that shouldn’t be put in it. Obey these restrictions to avoid any sanctions or fines.

Issues with renting skips in Westwell

At Norris Westwell, 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. Renting a skip in Westwell 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 Westwell, skip hiring will soon be a more challenging feat. Our waste management services are readily available if you wish to skip the whole task of skip hiring.

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. 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”.

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.” The special waste regulations 1996 and the hazardous waste regulations 2005 are in charge of controlling the way waste is disposed.

Skip Hire Permits

To place a skip for a construction project on any public land, you need a skip hire permit. Skip hire permits are required when you intend to use a piece of land you don’t own to place the skip. 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. 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 more expensive skip hire permits; for about £60, £80 and £100. Any questions you have on pricing can be answered at the local council office. We make it our business at Norris Westwell to make skip hiring easy for you. You don’t need the hassle involved with getting a skip hire permit because we can get it for you as we deliver your choice of skip. 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. We can get skip hire services along with permits that have up to 14 day validity. 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 using a skip hire service for the first time, you might be worried about how safe and effective the skip will be during use. We don’t just get you the skip size of your choice at Norris Westwell, we provide tested skips with certificates as well. 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. Another option is to come by our Westwell office and we will provide the tested skip you want with certificate.

Prohibited Items

We allow many different kinds of waste in our skips at Norris Westwell. But, there are some prohibited items that cannot go in our skips. If it is safe enough, we can take those items from you and get them treated. The items we do not allow in our skips include automotive oils and fluids, medical waste, car tyres, heavy duty batteries, gas canisters, television sets, air conditioning units, refrigerators, aerosols, and fluorescent light bulbs.

Recycling Targets/Landfill Policy

There are recycling targets put in place by the Environmental Agency and government. We uphold these set recycling rules at Norris Westwell and you can find them below: The aim of the Environmental Agency is to see to 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 work towards the control of pollution in the environment and encourage the protection of natural resources like plants and animals. That isn’t even all! The body provides public education on environmental matters as well, supporting the recycling of household waste to reduce the quantity. 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. To handle Government Targets, a landfill directive was issued. It states how much the quantity of waste need to be lowered for the purpose of landfills in certain areas of the UK. It also added, from 2007, that landfills shouldn’t take waste that hasn’t been treated. From the most recent year, the targets are the following: No more that 35% of the waste retrieved to use for landfill sites in the UK should be retrieved by 2015. 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:

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. By 2005, 25% of household waste should be composted or recycled – while that of each local authority was 30% as of the same year. The government issued a ” Waste Performance and Efficiency Grant” to help local authorities recycle more, reduce waste, and for landfill diversions. The following materials can be recycled: wood, clinical waste, metal, building materials, batteries, paper, printer, cartridges, plastic, electricals and electronics, computers, composting, and various others.
