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, and piling up unwanted goods and rubble outside the front door is far from ideal. 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.
An additional benefit of hiring a skip with Fletchers, is that we can 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 a landfill site.
Domestic Skip Hire 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, we have the following sizes available:
- Mini Skip / Midi Skip – 4 yard skips, also known as Mini Skips or Midi Skips, hold approximately 40 rubbish bags worth of waste. These are perfect skips to hire if you’re doing minor DIY work or garden projects.
- Builders Skip – 8 yard skips, usually referred to as Builders Skips, can take approximately 60 rubbish bags. Builders skips are the most popular skip size to hire as they’re ideally sized to cope with most domestic needs, whilst still small enough to fit on a driveway.
- Drop Down Door Skip – 8 yard Drop Down Door Skips are similar to builders skips, but allow you to walk into the skip to dispose of wheelbarrow waste, or material which would be difficult or hazardous to lift over the lip of a builders skip.
Access and Permitting
When hiring a skip in Sheffield and thinking about where it should go, 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, however as an authorised contractor for skip hire in Sheffield, we can organise Council permits for you as part of our skip hire service.
If you’re not sure what size skip you’ll need to hire, or have any questions about placement and access, our friendly waste management team are on hand Monday to Saturday to advise on which skip size you’ll need or to answer any other questions you might have.

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
Commercial Skip Hire
We’ve been servicing 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. Our team is available to discuss any requirements around permitting requirements in Sheffield, and as commercial projects usually generate more waste, our commercial skips come in a range of larger sizes, and we can provide additional services to support hazardous waste including asbestos removal skips and scrap metal skips.
These skips are unavailable for domestic use in most cases as they are generally too large to be placed on a driveway, are designed for much larger volumes of waste than most domestic projects will generate, and in some cases are designed for specific non-mixed waste types.
Flexible short and long-term commercial skip hire contracts are available on the following skip sizes:
- Maxi Skip – Maxi Skips, available in 12 yard or 14 yard variations, have a capacity of 80-90 black bags worth of waste. They’re ideal skips to hire for professional projects such as new builds, large extensions projects, or minor demolitions.
- Maxi L Skip – Slightly larger, the Maxi L Skip is 16 yards and takes approximately 100 rubbish bags worth of waste. The largest ‘traditional’ skip we hire out in Sheffield, Maxi L Skips are useful for projects generating a large volume of hardcore waste such as driveway works or landscaping clearances.
- Roll On Roll Off Skip – 20 – 40 yard skips, Roll On Roll Off Skips (RoRo’s) are the largest skips available to hire for big commercial projects. Their capacity makes them excellent for removing light, but bulky waste or for landscape excavation works which generate high volumes of soil, brick and other hardcore.
Protecting People and the Environment
As an environmentally friendly company we’re dedicated to recycling as much of the waste we collect as possible, and you can rest assured that we dispose of all waste collected from our skips legally and professionally to protect people, property and the environment, completely 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.
