Domestic / Household Skip Hire
Hiring a skip for your at-home projects can be a huge time saver! Whatever project you’re undertaking, it’s likely to generate more waste than your black bin is able to cope with. The convenience of hiring a household skip means that you won’t need to worry about overflowing your wheelie bins with rubbish, upsetting the neighbours or taking several expensive and time-consuming round trips to the tip.
Furthermore, when you hire a skip with Fletchers, we guarantee up to 96% of the waste you throw into your skip will be recycled into new materials or reused for renewable energy generation, instead of ending up in landfill or an incinerator.
Domestic Skip Sizes
Our domestic skip hire services in Sheffield are available in varying sizes to suit the type of work you’re doing – from a cheap mini skip for your annual garden tidy-up, through to a larger skip suitable for the likes of extension projects or kitchen remodels.
For domestic skip hire customers in Sheffield we recommend the following skip sizes:
|Midi Skip||5’6” (w) x 4’ (h) x 6’6” (l)||Approx. 40 Black Bags||Ideal for small DIY or gardening projects where bulky waste such as branches or offcuts require disposal. Small footprint allows for easy siting and access.|
|Builders Skip||5’6” (w) x 4’ (h) x 10’6” (l)||Approx. 60 Black Bags||The most popular skip hire. Capable of handling most domestic projects, including small renovation works, whilst retaining a footprint small enough to fit on a standard single driveway.|
|Drop Down Door Skip||5’6” (w) x 4’ (h) x 10’6” (l)||Approx. 60 Black Bags||Similar to the Builders Skip, but featuring a drop-down front door, enabling walk-in access to dispose of heavier waste, or to tip out wheelbarrows. Fits on a standard single driveway.|
Access and Permitting
When hiring a skip in Sheffield you should also consider access routes for drop-off and collection. In most cases, skip hire delivery will require a 9ft entrance space, and enough space on the road leading up to the delivery point for our lorries to manoeuvre.
All three of our commonly hired domestic skips are perfectly sized to fit neatly on most household driveways or gardens, meaning they’re out of the way and won’t block roads or public access. If you don’t have a driveway, they’re also small enough to take up around the same amount of road-space as a parked car, and we’ll work with you to find the best place for your hired skip to be situated.
Please bear in mind that any skip you hire will be required to have permission from the local council to be situated on a public highway. As an authorised contractor for skip hire in Sheffield, we will organise Council permits for you as part of our skip hire service.
Commercial Skip Hire
We’ve been providing commercial skip hire in Sheffield since 1982, so whatever work your business is undertaking, our commercial skip hire service is flexible enough to suit your needs.
As commercial projects usually generate more waste, our commercial skips come in a range of larger sizes. These skips are unavailable for domestic as they are generally too large for a driveway, are designed for much larger volumes of waste, and in some cases are designed for specific non-mixed waste types.
Our commercial skip hire team are available to discuss the arrangement of road permits, transfer notes, destruction certification or hazardous waste documentation to ensure your business is compliant with any legal obligations. We can also provide services to support hazardous waste in Sheffield including asbestos removal skips and scrap metal skips.
Flexible short and long-term commercial skip hire in Sheffield is available for the following skip sizes:
|Midi Skip||5’6” (w) x 4’ (h) x 6’6” (l)||Approx. 40 Black Bags||Small projects where minimal volumes of waste are likely to be generated, such as commercial clear-outs, redundant stock removal, or minor renovations.|
|Builders Skip||5’6” (w) x 4’ (h) x 10’6” (l)||Approx. 60 Black Bags||Suitable for standard ‘builders’ projects, such as skilled trades work, small construction works, or similar.|
|Drop Down Door Skip||5’6” (w) x 4’ (h) x 10’6” (l)||Approx. 60 Black Bags||Similar to the Builders Skip, with ease of access via a drop-down front panel for removing bulky waste, rubble, and wheelbarrows of waste.|
|Maxi Skip||5’6” (w) x 5’6” (h) x 12’6” (l)||Approx. 80 Black Bags||Designed for larger building works, demolition projects and new builds where large volumes of hardcore waste may be generated.|
|Maxi L Skip||5’6” (w) x 6’6” (h) x 12’6” (l)||Approx. 100 Black Bags||Slightly larger to cater to bigger pieces of hardcore waste such as paving slabs, rock or rubble from construction works, or for bigger house/landscaping works.|
|Roll On Roll Off Skip||8’ (w) x 8’ (h) x 18’ (l)||Approx. 120 Black Bags||Designed for the biggest clearance projects, capable of removing high volumes of furniture, timber, plastics, brick etc. Accessible by a front door for safety and ease of use.|
Filling Your Skip
Before hiring a skip in Sheffield for either domestic or commercial use, there are a few important pointers to take into consideration:
- Don’t overfill skips – This is dangerous both to you and our employees, and in some cases may mean we cannot collect your skip and will incur additional costs.
- Don’t burn waste in skips – Not only is setting fires to skip waste illegal, you will be liable for repair or replacement for any damage the fire causes to our skips.
- Don’t mix hazardous waste with general waste – Mixing hazardous waste with recyclable or general waste will incur further cost and make it more difficult for us to uphold our commitment to protecting people and the environment.
Also, though hiring a skip can be a convenient way to get rid of rubbish and waste, there are limitations to what can be thrown into a skip. It helps to us know when you book what materials you expect to be putting into your skip. Restricted according to health and safety regulations, the following items cannot be put in your skip:
- Electrical equipment and appliances
- Fluorescent light bulbs
- Medical waste
- Gas cylinders
Protecting People and the Environment
As an environmentally friendly company we’re dedicated to recycling as much of the waste we collect as possible. We dispose of all waste collected from our skips legally and professionally to protect people, property and the environment, avoiding landfills or incineration.
This means our waste collection from skip hire experiences a recycling rate of 92-96%, something we’re incredibly proud of and that allows us to build long-lasting relationships with other environmentally conscious companies in Sheffield.
