Skip Hire sizes

We have skips for hire in different sizes at Norris Blackburn. 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 At Norris Blackburn, we also have the 4 yard skip for hire. 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. It’s ideal for house or garden clearance, and other DIY projects.
  • 6 Yard Skip Hire This skip works perfectly for home extensions and office premises renovation projects. At Norris Blackburn, we provide the 6 yard skip to carry any builders waste. It’s perfect for stashing away heavy waste and bulky materials like soil or stones. 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. You’ve probably noticed this skip a lot in 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. 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 safely hold 100-115 filled black bin bags, or 40 barrow loads of builders waste and materials. For large home removals, this skip is the ideal choice.
  • 10 Yard Skip Hire For very big home removals or garden clearance, it is recommended to go for the 10 yard skip. Norris Blackburn 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. It works perfectly for large scale site clearance, home removals, and other projects.
  • 12 Yard Skip Hire This skip is mainly for industrialized purposes. At Norris Blackburn, we offer the 12 yard skip for hire for those who need a large skip for their site clearance, office clearance, or commercial projects that involve the disposal of large quantities of waste at a time. 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. This skip has enough room for up to 62 full barrow loads of concrete, soil, and other building waste.

Waste Recycling Targets

The Environmental Agency and the government have set recycling targets for some time now. We acknowledge these targets which include: The mission of the Environmental Agency is to ensure the improvement and protection of the environment in England and Wales. 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 quality of water, air, and land is continuously improved by the Environmental Agency. The Environmental Agency encourages the conservation of animals, land, and natural resources, and controls environmental pollution by implementing certain efforts. That’s not all! 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. 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. As for Government Targets, a landfill directive was released. The directive released contains government targets aimed at reducing the amount of waste taken to landfill spots in the UK. Taking effect from the most recent year, the targets include: The waste taken to landfill spots in the UK should be 35% of the amount taken in 1995 by 2015. That the amount of waste taken to landfill spots in the UK by 2013 be only 50% of the amount taken in 1995. The waste taken to landfill spots in the UK should be 75% of the amount taken in 1995 by 2010. To help make the landfill directive achievable and recover waste, the following targets were also introduced by the Waste Strategy 2000: 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: Composting and recycling should be carried out on 33% of household waste as of 2015. 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”. Materials like batteries, paper, printer cartridges, plastic, furniture, glass, oil, metal, electrical and electronics, vehicles, wood, clinical waste, building materials, and so on, have been listed as recyclable.

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 Blackburn, 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 might get a skip at £50 in London, for instance, and get the same skip size for £20 in Blackburn. The longer you need to hold on to a skip, the more expensive the skip will be, because pricing is affected by time as well. Also bearing in mind that skip hire permits only last for a set period of time as well. 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. 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 Blackburn

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 Blackburn. Renting a skip in Blackburn 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. We know that the growing population in Blackburn will mean a more difficult skip hiring process soon. 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. Any industrial, commercial, or household waste in solid or liquid form is referred to as controlled waste. If you only do personal garden waste removal, however, you do not require 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.

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. 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 methods are regulated by special waste regulations 1996 and the hazardous waste regulations 2005.

Skip Hire Permits

A skip hire permit is a must have for skips hired for construction projects with the intention of placing them on any public land. Skip hire permits are required when you intend to use a piece of land you don’t own to place the skip. Federal highways, streets, government roads, and land owned by any third party are those that require skip hire permits. You can use your own land or space without a skip hire permit if you have it, only ensuring you don’t cross into land that isn’t yours. 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. At Norris Blackburn, we consider it our responsibility to ease your skip hire process. 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. When you request an online quote, we include the cost of getting a permit, which will not be necessary if you have land of your own to place the skip in. Our skip hire service can come with skip hire permits that are valid for 14 days. Call us today on 020 8698 8000 and we will provide you with any details you might need on our skip hire permits and waste management services.

Tested skips with certificate

It is not unusual for you to be nervous about how safe and effective it will be to use a skip if you’re hiring for the first time. At Norris Blackburn, we meet your skip size requirements and supply skips that have been tested with certificates. Closed skip or open skip, we can deliver whichever you want with proof of its efficiency and quality. Call us today on 020 8698 8000 if you have any concerns, and our experts will answer your questions. Alternatively, you can visit us at our office in Blackburn and we will make the tested skip of your choice available – with certificate.

Prohibited Items

At Norris Blackburn, a lot of different waste types are acceptable to be put in our skips. 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. Medical waste, gas canisters, air conditioning units, heavy duty batteries, fluorescent light bulbs, television sets, refrigerators, and aerosols are prohibited from being in our skips.

Recycling Targets/Landfill Policy

The Environmental Agency and government have been setting recycling targets for some time now. We at Norris Blackburn acknowledge these targets and here they are: The Environmental Agency aims to make sure the Englands’ and Wales’ environment can improve and is protected. 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. The aim of the agency is also to make sure the quality of land, air and water gets better constantly. 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 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. 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 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: 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 allowed to be taken and used for landfills in the UK by 2013 shouldn’t exceed 50% of what was taken in 1995. In 2010, only 75% of the waste collected for filling UK landfill sites in 1995 should be collected. The Waste Strategy 2000 included the following targets, as a way of making sure waste is recovered and the landfill directive is reached: Of all the waste, 67% should be recovered in 2015, 45% of it recovered in 2010, and 40% of it recovered in 2005.

Waste Strategy 2000 had published in it, by the government, the natural recycling targets, which are as follows:

No less than 33% of household waste should be composted or recycled in 2015. By 2010, 30% of household waste should be composted or recycled. No less than 25% of household waste should be composted or recycled in 2005, local authorities were set at 30% for the same year. The government issued a ” Waste Performance and Efficiency Grant” to help local authorities recycle more, reduce waste, and for landfill diversions. 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.
