Bolton Skip Hire FAQs
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into the various waste streams, like wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This ensures that as much of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it dangerous to move, and you will probably be asked to remove any rubbish above the level load mark. This means you can not use sheets of wood, doors or any other item, as this will increase the size of the skip. We have a legal obligation to ensure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure that you select the correct sized skip to meet your requirements and get in contact if you’re unsure which size you need. We will be pleased to help.
What is the cost of skip hire in Bolton?
This depends upon the skip size you will need and whether you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the least expensive choice. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.

What types of waste am I allowed to put in my skip?
You are able to fill up your skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly produced from house clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, garden soil, stone, hedge trimmings, household furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you throw in the skip will depend on which skip size you have hired, because there is a weight restriction. For example, if you are using your skip for heavy building wastes such as stone or dirt, the largest size you would be able to hire is an 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials cannot be discarded in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can usually hire the skip for up to 2 weeks from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the collection will be as convenient as possible, you will have the option of offering a preferred collection day when you place your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you have finished with your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the next working day.
It can take a bit longer to pick up your skip during busy times, but we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.
What is classed as being a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most commonly supplied for building and construction jobs. There are generally two sizes that can be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of substantial quantities of construction and demolition waste, like dirt, rubble and rock.
Although branded a builders skip, these can be used for many other domestic and commercial waste disposal tasks.
What is a mini skip?
If you have a small amount of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip may be the ideal choice. What size is described as a mini skip differs from business to business, according to what sizes they provide.
The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to have a 3 yard container as their smallest option. Cost depends on the particular size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for residential tasks including small DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Bolton?
Preferably, you should have the skip left on a hard surface area. For anyone who is carrying out a household project, then the driveway will be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you must get a permit from the local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be dropped on a road, grass verge or other public property in Bolton. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be issued on your behalf. An extra charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
Which skip sizes will have a drop down door?
Nearly all skips can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.
A skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the bin, especially with heavy materials, like soil and gravel, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load big and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.
Can I throw away electronic products in the skip?
Electronic products like TVs, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore can not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic goods need to be separated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.

How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to dispose of large quantities of waste. Predominantly, these skips are used for commercial uses. Having said that, domestic clients can also hire them. You will need to take into account the space they take up, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be used for light-weight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of dirt and concrete.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you have requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your order before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery area, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will lead to a charge for a wasted journey.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be in when anybody delivers something to your home. That allows you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be positioned just where you need it.
The same goes if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.
