Alderley Edge Skip Hire FAQs
What is the size of a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most frequently used for building and construction projects. There are typically two skip sizes which can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins which you can use to dispose of substantial quantities of building and demolition materials, such as earth, concrete and stone.
Even though they are labelled a builders skip, they can be used for many other household and business waste disposal jobs.
What things can I put in my skip?
You are able to fill up your skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly generated from house clearances, building work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include timber, dirt, stone, garden trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in the skip would depend on the skip size you have hired, as there is a weight restriction. For instance, when you will be using your skip for heavy construction wastes such as bricks or dirt, the largest size you can use is an 8 yard skip.
Some materials cannot be disposed of in your skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Alderley Edge?
In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want your skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or house, you must secure permission from your local authority in Alderley Edge, which is called a permit. If necessary, we would be glad to organise this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for your road permit, plus you should know before placing your order that securing the permit can often take up to two working days.

Can I stack up waste in my skip?
You should not load the skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it over the tip of this mark, it means that your skip is not secure to transport, and you may be asked to remove the extra waste before it can be collected.
Should I be in when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t have to be at your property when the skip is delivered, however it will help. Being there whenever the skip is due for delivery means you can make sure the delivery driver can be given complete access and that your skip will be positioned precisely where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is being hired to business property, we will appreciate your support during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
However, if you can’t be available for delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you book your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.

Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our very best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
It is important to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will usually incur a fee for the wasted trip.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Alderley Edge?
The cost of hiring a skip in Alderley Edge depends on the size of skip you require. The cheapest skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you require a larger skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also be more if you want to have your skip positioned on the highway, because you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we can offer customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.
What is a mini skip?
For those who have a small quantity of rubbish to dispose of, the mini skip may be the perfect option. What size is called a mini skip varies from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is considered the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. The cost is dependent on the particular size you order, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for household tasks including modest DIY projects and garden clean ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
How long can I keep a skip for?
You can typically keep a skip for as long as 2 weeks from your date of delivery. You may provide a preferred collection day at the time you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can let us know after you have finished, and we will prepare the collection. Generally, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer during busy periods.
How large is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge commercial scale skips used mainly in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for businesses that produce significant amounts of waste materials.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into various waste streams, including timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What size skips can have a drop door?
Virtually all containers can be delivered with a drop door, which makes them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, such as garden soil and concrete, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, like pieces of furniture.

Am I able to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot put old electrical waste products in your skip. This includes such things as laptops, microwaves, dishwashers, refrigerators and tv sets. Electric products can’t be disposed of in a skip since they can include dangerous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.
