Bacup Skip Hire FAQs

Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?

You don’t need to be at home when your skip is going to be delivered, but it can help. Being there when the skip arrives means that you can ensure the lorry can be given full access and that the skip will be positioned exactly where you need it. Likewise, if your skip is being hired to business property, we will appreciate your support during delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.

Having said that, for those who can’t be around at the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place your order, and we will arrange things from there.

What types of rubbish am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?

You can load the skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly generated from garage clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include wood, dirt, concrete, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you throw in your skip would depend on the size you have ordered, as there is a weight limit. For instance, in the event that you will be using the skip for heavy construction wastes such as rubble or soil, the largest size you can hire is the 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials can not be disposed of in the skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest skip offered by skip companies and is good for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms provide a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

Can you deliver skips across Lancashire?

Yes. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to deliver skips to residential and commercial customers throughout Lancashire and anywhere else within the UK.

What are the different skip sizes available?

Skips come in a wide range of sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is good for small residential tasks.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent option for attic clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to tackle, a builder’s skip might be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title indicates, these represent the most frequent sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, such as soil and hardcore. However they can just as well be hired for household rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.

We can also deliver 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?

No, you cannot throw old or broken electronic waste items in your skip. This includes items like laptops or computers, cookers, tumble dryers, freezers and television sets. Electronic objects can’t be disposed of in the skip as they can include dangerous materials and components.

As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.

Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?

When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into the different waste streams, including wood, metals, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container that can be used to transport huge quantities of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these containers are hired for business applications. However, domestic clients may also order them. It is essential to look at the space they will occupy, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be hired for light-weight materials including paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of soil and concrete.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. They are the largest skips that can be hired to discard heavy building and construction waste such as rock, bricks, rubble or dirt.

The builders skip is great for a wide array of projects. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning the garden shed, these large skips tend to be the most affordable choice available.

What size skips can have a door?

If you are selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is ideal for disposing of heavy building and construction rubbish, as it can be pushed in to the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop door, though these are less common. This is because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our best to make sure a skip that has a drop door is supplied.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

You can typically hire a skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, there is the choice of offering a preferred collection time when you make your order.

Otherwise, simply tell us when you have finished with the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the next working day.

It can take a little bit longer to collect your skip over busy periods, however we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.

Will a skip hire company from Bacup deliver my skip?

To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work together with a number of local and national companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we can offer customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Bacup?

This depends upon where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a permit if it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if the skip is on private property, like a drive or inside your business premises.

If you need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have your skip on private land, it will save you a few pounds.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Bacup?

This depends on the size you need and whether you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced choice. The most expensive and biggest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in industrial settings.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you complete your order prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we try to offer you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery spot, as failed deliveries will result in a fee for the wasted journey.

Is it okay to fill my skip above the level load line?

No, you must only fill the skip up to the level load mark. Loading waste up above this line will make it dangerous to move, and you could be told to remove the surplus waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or any other objects to raise the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and can also make it overweight.
