Belfast ( BEL-fahst; from Irish: Béal Feirste, meaning “mouth of the sand-bank ford”,Irish pronunciation: [bʲeːlˠ ˈfʲɛɾˠ(ə)ʃtʲə]) is the capital and largest city of Northern Ireland, standing on the banks of the River Lagan on the east coast. It is the 12th-largest city in the United Kingdom and the second-largest on the island of Ireland. It had a population of 343,542 as of 2019. Belfast suffered greatly during the violence that accompanied the partition of Ireland, and especially during the more recent conflict known as the Troubles: in the 1970s and 1980s it was one of the world’s most dangerous cities, with a homicide rate around 31 per 100,000.
If you’re planning on having your skip delivered onto the road or into a parking bay. You will need a permit from your local council. These are an additional cost to your skip hire but fluctuate in price from council to council.
They generally take 3-5 working days to receive from the council even though in some cases it can take a lot longer. In terms of how long you have one for, it can be from 1 day up to a month and can be reissued depending on how long you need them.
They’re very flexible and as long as you don’t need the skip in a hurry is a great way to get your skip delivered wherever you want it!
The price to hire a skip changes depending on the type of junk going into the skip and the size of the skip you require. As a rule of thumb, you should expect to pay from £100 up to about £350 for a residential skip in most cases.
Depending on the size of the job your undertaking will determine the size of the skip you need. A general rule of thumb is to divide the number of bin bags of waste you’ll generate by ten. For example, if you think you’ll generate 60 bin bags of waste you will require a 6-yard skip.
Items which are suitable to to place in a skip are household items such as wood, tiles, plaster, furniture, paper, cardboard, garden waste and fabrics. You can also place heavy materials such as bricks, rubble, concrete, stones, metal, pottery and clays.
