Barnoldswick Skip Hire FAQs

Do all skips have a drop door?

Having a skip that has a drop door can make loading waste into it so much easier. This is especially true with heavy waste materials like soil and hardcore, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away large bulky objects like furniture easier also.

Most skips can be provided with a drop door, however it will sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.

What can I put in my skip?

Your skip can be hired to dispose of many different types of waste. We are used to collecting and processing a wide variety of items generated from building jobs, garden projects and house clearances. Some examples of permitted waste materials include:

  • Home furnishings
  • Tree cuttings
  • Garden soil
  • Stone
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many different materials are accepted, so whether you wish to throw out metals, plastics, timber or clothing, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The quantity and things you put into the skip can vary according to the size skip you have chosen. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you want to dispose of garden soil and concrete, as an example, the largest size container you would be permitted to use is the 8 cubic yard skip.

Are there items which I can’t throw in the skip?

There are some materials which you will not be permitted to throw out in the skip. The reason for this is that these products incorporate hazardous materials which may be harmful to the environment. They could also be harmful to human health, therefore they must be discarded separately within UK regulations.

A few of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer screens
  • Battery packs
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to deal with many tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be situated on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.

Although most frequently chosen by household customers, the mini skip can even tackle small commercial jobs.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Barnoldswick?

This depends upon the size you will need and whether you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the lowest priced choice. The most costly and largest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We can typically provide a following day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, as to be on public property (for example a road), you must gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of many factors that can impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it turning up in a morning or afternoon slot.

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

Unfortunately it is not permitted, as electrical items like old televisions, fridge freezers, laptops and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects must be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.

Am I allowed to load the skip above the top?

It is important not to overload a skip, as you risk being asked to remove surplus waste prior to it being collected. No matter what size you order, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, as moving an overloaded bin will be dangerous, as rubbish could fall and lead to injuries or damage to other people.

To prevent this issue, please be sure you hire a size suited to your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have additional waste to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge container that can be used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These containers are primarily for business use but can be hired by household clients as well. However, you should have a lot of room since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger in comparison to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.

As a result of the size, RORO containers can only be used for light materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and rubble.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?

No, you do not need to be at home when we deliver the skip. So long as we can gain access to where you want it located, we can manage it all.

When you will not be at home, simply let us know any relevant delivery directions when booking the order. For example, you might need the skip to be dropped on a particular part of the driveway. Alternatively, you might need to ensure that the skip does not hinder entry to your garage.

No matter what the situation may be, provide the details when you place your order, and then we will ensure the directions will be passed to the delivery driver.

If I want a skip on the road in Barnoldswick, will I need a permit?

If at all possible, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface area. For anyone who is doing a household project, then a drive will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither is available, the street or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public property, you must get a permit from your local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be positioned on a street, grass verge as well as other public property in Barnoldswick. If this is required, we will request the license to be granted on your behalf. An additional charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

Can you deliver skips across Lancashire?

Certainly. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we are able to offer skips to household and industrial customers throughout Lancashire and elsewhere within the UK.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is the most popular skip that is used across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is perfect for most building projects, which is where the label comes from.

The 8 yd builders skip is the biggest option that can be used for heavy waste materials such as garden soil, concrete, rock and gravel.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips are offered in a number of sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is good for small household tasks.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great choice for garden shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant waste disposal task to sort out, the builder’s skip might be the smartest choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label implies, these are the most frequent sizes hired by builders for construction waste, such as soil and hardcore. However they can equally well be hired for domestic rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also offer 10-16 cubic yard containers and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For more details about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Where do you take the waste from my skip?

The waste in the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer centre. Here the contents will be segregated by machines and also by hand into different waste materials, such as metal, plastics, concrete and wood. Processing the waste in this manner helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.
