Ashton-under-Lyne Skip Hire FAQs
How do you hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip will be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or local authority property (such as the street). After that, pick the date you would like the skip to get delivered. Check your order and make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your skip to Ashton-under-Lyne on the date you have chosen.
Do you deliver skips across Greater Manchester?
Absolutely. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we are able to provide skips to domestic and industrial customers throughout Greater Manchester and anywhere else within the UK.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you operate a business in Ashton-under-Lyne and need to get rid of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a great option. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips that can be hired.
As the name indicates, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike standard skips, that are picked up using chains.
What types of waste can I dispose of in a skip?
You can use a skip to discard lots of different waste materials. We are used to collecting and handling numerous materials from construction work, garden projects and property clean-ups. Examples of allowed waste products include things like:
- Home furniture
- Tree cuttings
- Top soil
- Bathroom toilets and sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Many different waste materials are usually allowed, so whether you need to discard furniture, plastic materials, wood or clothing, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The quantity and waste types you throw in the skip may vary depending on which size skip you hired. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you need to dispose of garden soil and rubble, as an example, the largest size you will be able to hire will be the 8 cubic yard skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?
There are several waste materials you are not able to discard in your skip. The main reason for this is that these products contain hazardous elements that may harm the environment. They can even be hazardous to human health, and so they must be disposed of separately within UK laws.
A few of the things that are restricted include:
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas canisters
- Computer screens
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products must be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This includes all electronic goods such as tumble dryers, monitors, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.
What sizes do skips come in?
We are able to offer a wide range of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for small DIY projects and household clearances. A popular option for larger sized jobs, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Ashton-under-Lyne firms which have a big amount of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How much will skip hire in Ashton-under-Lyne cost?
To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Ashton-under-Lyne, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you which sizes we provide in your location and how much each size will cost to hire. If your skip is going on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.
Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Ashton-under-Lyne?
This depends on where the skip will be located. You will only need to have a permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit when your skip will be on private property, like a driveway or inside your business premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, and we can make the required arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on your own property, it will save you some money.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
Virtually all skips can be delivered with a drop down door, making them easy to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the bin, especially with heavy materials, like dirt and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, such as furniture.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Ashton-under-Lyne?
We use a large network of both local and national skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our clients in Ashton-under-Lyne and the rest of the country. Our partner firms are verified and tested to make sure they satisfy our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.
Do I have to be home when the skip is delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be available when anyone delivers anything to your house. That enables you to ensure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it.
The same applies for those who have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
The contents of your skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling centre. Here the contents will be segregated by machines and also by hand into various waste streams, including metal, paper, rubble and wood. Sorting the waste in this way helps to increase the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.
Is it ok to fill up my skip higher than the top?
It is very important not to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being required to take off excessive waste prior to it being picked up. Regardless of the size you order, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, since transporting an overloaded container can be unsafe, as materials could drop and result in injuries or damage to other people.
To prevent this problem, please ensure you order a size appropriate for your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full and you have extra waste to dispose of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
Usually, you can keep the skip for a maximum of two week. This means you do not need to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.
How long will it take to get a skip in Ashton-under-Lyne?
When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We will typically provide a following day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, as to be on public property (such as a road), you will need to obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of several factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it arriving in a AM or PM slot.
How big is a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip is the size of skip most often used for construction projects. There are usually two skip sizes which can be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to get rid of large volumes of building and demolition waste, like dirt, concrete and stone.
Although branded a builder’s skip, these can be used for various other domestic and industrial waste disposal jobs.
How much waste will the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the smallest skip offered by skip companies and is perfect for smaller DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some companies offer you a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
