Bamber Bridge Skip Hire FAQs

Pick the size you wish to order, and confirm whether it is going to be delivered on private property. Type in your information and make payment using our secure payment platform.

Once your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with your booking details. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

What things can I put in the skip?

This is among the most popular questions people have about skip hire. The main thing to consider is that you can fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are so many types of waste which will result from garden work, construction work and household clearances.

Among the most common items that we pick up in skips include dirt, wood, hedge trimmings, cupboards, bathroom suites, and various other household items.

There are also some things that you are not allowed to put in the skip. This consists of any electronic goods (fridge freezers, TVs or computers for example), car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. These are all classed as hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them needs to comply with an entirely different procedure to ensure they don’t result in harm to the environment.

Where do you take the waste from my skip?

The items in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling centre. Here the contents will be segregated by machines and by hand into different waste streams, such as metal, plastics, rubble and timber. Processing the waste in this way helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

You can usually keep your skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you have the option of giving a preferred collection date when you place your order.

Alternatively, just let us know when you have finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the next working day.

It might take a little while longer to collect your skip during busy periods, however we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.

Is it okay to fill my skip higher than the top?

It is very important not to overload a skip, as you risk being told to take off excessive waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of what size you hire, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as moving an overloaded skip will be unsafe, as materials could fall and result in injury or damage to other people.

To avoid this issue, please be sure you hire a size suited to your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full but you have extra rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.

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

Electric powered products such as TVs, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore should not be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric products must be separated from other waste. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly way.

How long does it take to get a skip in Bamber Bridge?

We can usually supply skips to Bamber Bridge the next working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking program will give you a variety of delivery dates to select from. So whether you would like the skip to arrive asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.

How large is the mini skip?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to take on many jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be placed on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

Although most frequently hired by household customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.

Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Bamber Bridge?

Normally, it is possible to get a skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to get this done, you have got to get permission from the local council in Bamber Bridge, which is known as a skip permit. We can organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for this license, and it can sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?

It is always best if you can be available when anybody delivers something to your property. That enables you to make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be positioned precisely where you want it.

The same applies if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Bamber Bridge?

To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work with a variety of local and national companies. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to supply customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.

What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container used to transport huge amounts of waste materials. Primarily, these type of skips are used for commercial purposes. However, domestic customers can also use them. You have to take into account the area they will take up, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they must only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of soil and rubble.

What skip sizes do you provide?

Skips are offered in a variety of sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small household projects.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yard is a fantastic option for garden shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant rubbish disposal task to sort out, a builder’s skip might be the best choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name implies, these represent the most typical sizes used by builders for construction waste, including soil and rubble. However they can just as well be used for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also deliver 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more details about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Will the skip have a drop door?

It can also make disposing of large bulky objects like household furniture a lot easier also.

Most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, however this will sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our best to supply this.
