Alsager Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builders skip means the size of skip most often hired for construction and demolition jobs. There are usually two sizes that may be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that can be used to dispose of significant volumes of building and demolition waste materials, such as earth, rubble and bricks.
Although they are branded a builder’s skip, they can be used for many other domestic and industrial waste disposal jobs.
Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?
No, you do not need to be at home when we deliver the skip. As long as we are able to gain access to the place you want it delivered, we are able to take care of it all.
When you will not be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when you place your order. For example, you might need the skip to be dropped at a particular side of the property. Or you might want to be sure that the skip does not prevent entry to your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, simply let us know when you place your order, and then we will make sure your directions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
Am I able to get rid of electrical items in my skip?
No, you can not put old or unwanted electrical waste items in a skip. This can include things such as printers, microwaves, tumble dryers, fridges and monitors. Electric items can’t be discarded in the skip because they can contain hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Alsager?
In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you want your skip to be placed on land outside of your company or residence, you need to obtain authorisation from your local council in Alsager, which is known as a permit. If required, we would be happy to arrange this for you, and so it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the permit, plus you should know before ordering that securing the permit will often take up to two working days.
Do you deliver skips across Cheshire?
Absolutely. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to offer skips to household and business customers across Cheshire and elsewhere in the UK.
Am I able to throw all sorts of waste in the skip?
It is possible to throw a variety of rubbish in the skip. This includes wood, ceramic tiles, metal or concrete from a property clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, soil and rock from garden work is permitted too. Worktops and units from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be discarded in the skip.
There are, however, some things that you can’t put in a skip due to the potential environment or health risks they might trigger.
You are unable to throw out your freezer, computer monitor or old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things contain hazardous elements in one form or another. They must be disposed of separately from general waste.
If you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to schedule a separate service for this waste. Please email us for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
How long can I keep a skip for?
Our normal hire period is a fortnight from your delivery date. However, when you order the skip, you can select a collection date that will work for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if your skip is full earlier than anticipated, contact us, and we will collect it at the earliest opportunity.
We will usually complete collections within 48 hours. However, it is important to remember that this may not be possible during busier periods. Once collected, your skip will be taken to your local waste recycling centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Nearly all skips can be provided with a drop door, which makes them much easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the skip, particularly with heavy materials, such as soil and rubble, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky items, like furniture.
How soon can you deliver a skip in Alsager?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We can usually offer a following day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, because to go on public property (like a highway), you need to gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.
Due to numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it turning up within a AM or PM slot.
Where does my waste be taken to once the skip is picked up?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into a range of waste streams, such as wood, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection is recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to transport large amounts of waste materials. Mostly, these skips are used for business applications. Having said that, household clients may also hire them. You have to take into account the area they will occupy, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they must only be hired for light waste such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and hardcore.

Is it ok to stack up waste in my skip?
It is essential to never overfill the skip. You can not pass the level load mark shown on the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it becomes very hazardous to move. This means that when you overload the skip, you could be asked to remove the surplus rubbish. No matter how safe you feel the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. That is dangerous and is prohibited.

How big is the mini skip?
When you have a small amount of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip could be the ideal solution. What size is identified as a mini skip differs from company to company, according to what sizes they provide.
2 cubic yards is considered the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. Price is dependent on the specific size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are great for residential jobs such as small DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
