Skip Hire sizes

At Norris Osterley, we have several sizes of skips for hire. Home removal or office, we have whatever skip size you’ll need. If you need a small skip size like a 2 yard, or a big one of 12 yards, either way we have you covered. 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 Osterley. Its holding capacity is twice that of the 2 yard skip, and is just 0.90 meters in height. Its width of 1.5m by 2.5m allows space for larger products, such as kitchen and bathroom refits, appliances, electronics, and furniture. 45 to 50 black waste bags, and a little over 17 full barrow loads of waste, can fit into it. 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. At Norris Osterley, we provide the 6 yard skip to carry any builders waste. It can be used to store cumbersome waste materials like soil or stones. Its holding space can take about to 75 to 95 black disposal bags, or 30 full barrow loads of building dirt, as it has a width of 1.8m by 2.3m. This skip is popular with people in any 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 has almost 20% more space than the 6 yard skip, and it is just 1.9m by 3.4m in width. This skip can contain 100-115 full black waste bags with any issues, or 40 full barrow loads of slabs, soil, bricks and concrete. It is ideal for large home removals as well.
  • 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 Osterley, for your commercial projects. It can take as many as 52 full barrow loads of commercial waste, or 120-140 big waste bags at any time. It’s ideal for larger building projects, site clearance, or home removals.
  • 12 Yard Skip Hire This skip is mainly for industrialized purposes. The 12 yard skip we have for hire at Norris Osterley is really big, and is suitable for large commercial projects and office or home clearances that will involve plenty of one time disposals. 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.

Several other local authorities and organisations work with the Environmental Agency to achieve its aims, and to provide other environmental services to areas in need of it. The agency also seeks to better the quality of water, land, and air continuously. The Environmental Agency encourages the conservation of animals, land, and natural resources, and controls environmental pollution by implementing certain efforts. It doesn’t end there! They also educate people on issues that are related to the environment, promote household product recycling to reduce its quantity, better waste disposal standards, and so on.

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 Osterley, and we are going to briefly help you understand as well. Regional pricing – skip hire costs differ by location, it could be higher or lower. You might get a skip at £50 in London, for instance, and get the same skip size for £20 in Osterley. 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. Keeping in mind there are time limits on skip hire permits too. Limitations and Restrictions – skips usually have weight limits even with their sizes. You have to find out if there are limitations from your skip hire 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 Osterley

At Norris Osterley, 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. Issues to be considered when hiring a skip in Osterley are local council laws, red routes, double yellow lines, narrow paths, congestion zones, small front space, pedestrian only lanes and red routes. At the rate at which Osterley is growing in population, skip hiring will become more and more difficult. 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 wastes are wastes from industrial, commercial, and household processes in solid or liquid form. 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. Anyone applying to own a new site has to have the Waste Management Industry Training and Advisory Board (WAMITAB) certificate, which proves they are “technically competent”.

Section 34 of the act includes the duty of care for people who are part of creating, bringing in, conveying, storing, treating, and removing controlled waste. It was stated in the Act 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.” The special waste regulations 1996 and the hazardous waste regulations 2005 are in charge of controlling the way waste is disposed.

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. 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. If you happen to cross into someone else’s land who isn’t a part of your project, or invade another person’s privacy with the skip, it could be seized or you could be fined. Getting a skip hire permit can cost as low as £20, based on the skip size and council you have to get the permit from. There are skip hire permits that may cost as much as £60, £80, and up to £100 sometimes. The local council office can provide you with the specifics you need on pricing. At Norris Osterley, 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.

Recycling Targets/Landfill Policy

A number of targets for recycling were set by the Environmental Agency and government. We at Norris Osterley 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. Some government organisations and local authorities are tasked with the job of meeting their targets and making sure other environmental services available get to needed locations. The Environmental Agency also endeavors to make sure land, air and water are constantly improved in terms of quality. They implement steps that aim to control pollution in the environment, encouraging efforts towards preserving natural resources as well. They don’t stop there either! The body works to educate the general populace on environmental issues to improve waste handling standards, by encouraging more recycling of waste in the household to cut down on overall waste quantity. 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. As for Government Targets, a landfill directive was released. It specifies the targets needed to lower the quantity of waste removed to landfill areas in 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: In 2015, only 35% of the waste collected for filling UK landfill sites in 1995 should be collected. 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.

The targets for natural recycling were published in the Waste Strategy 2000 by the government. They include:

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 must be composted or recycled as of 2005, even though local authorities had a 30% target in 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.
