Billinge Skip Hire FAQs
Can I load up my skip above level load mark?
You should not fill up the skip past the level load mark. When you fill it over the tip of this mark, it means that the skip is not safe and secure to move, and you could be asked to take off any extra waste before it can be collected.
Will you deliver skips across Merseyside?
As well as delivering skips to Billinge, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Merseyside. Through a network of regional and national waste management businesses, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business in Billinge, Birkenhead or Southport, we have got you covered.
Do I need to be at home when the skip will be delivered?
You don’t really need to be at home when the skip will be delivered, however it will help. Being there whenever the skip is due for delivery means you can ensure the lorry driver is given complete access and that the skip can be placed precisely where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is being hired to a business premises, we will appreciate your support during the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, when you can’t be available during the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to tell us when you place your order, and then we will arrange things from there.
When will my skip be delivered?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We will normally offer you a next day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, because to be on public property (for example a road), you need to obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.
Due to numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it turning up within a morning or afternoon slot.
How much will skip hire in Billinge cost?
This depends upon the size you require and whether you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the cheapest option. The most costly and largest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in business settings.

What can I put in my skip?
This is one of the most frequent questions people have about our service. The main thing to keep in mind is that you may fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of rubbish which will come from garden work, building work and house clearances.
Some of the most frequent items that we collect in skips include dirt, wood, hedge cuttings, kitchen units, toilets, and various household objects.
There are also some materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This includes any electronic items (fridge freezers, monitors or cookers for example), car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them needs to abide by an entirely different procedure to ensure they do not cause damage to the environment.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Billinge?
Ordering a skip in Billinge with us is incredibly easy. Pick the skip size you require and then enter a few details about where and when you need the skip delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then arrange to get your skip delivered.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Billinge?
As we provide a UK-wide skip service, we utilise a comprehensive network of verified companies. These can range from small local skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental expectations.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip?
The materials in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer facility. Here the waste will be separated by machinery and also by hand into numerous waste materials, such as soil, plastics, rubble and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.
Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot put old or unwanted electrical waste items in your skip. This includes things such as laptops or computers, microwaves, dishwashers, freezers and tv sets. Electric items can’t be thrown in a skip since they can contain hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.
If I require a skip on a road in Billinge, will I need to have a permit?
This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only need to have a permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if your skip is on your private property, such as a drive or within your business premises.
Should you need to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on private property, it will save you a few pounds.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
Generally, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, dependant upon size, availability and location. If you require a drop door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip with a drop door is primarily beneficial when you are hiring a large builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow waste materials into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, as they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What is a builders skip?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often used for building and construction jobs. There are generally two sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that can be used to get rid of large amounts of construction and demolition waste materials, including garden soil, concrete and bricks.
Although they are labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for many other household and business waste disposal tasks.
How many different skip sizes are available?
Skips are available in a number of sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is perfect for small household jobs.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a fantastic option for garage clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
When you have a more substantial waste disposal job to sort out, a builder’s skip could be the best option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title indicates, these are the most common sizes hired by builders for building waste, such as clay and stone. However they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We can also supply 10-16 cubic yard containers and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more info on the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, that provides you with sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you do need a little more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, in the event you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know once you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are great for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furnishings and broken baby toys to paving slabs and soil. With a capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make several trips to the local recycling centre.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you have a company in Billinge and need to dispose of large quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that can be hired.
As the name implies, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, which are picked up using chains.
