Brierfield Skip Hire FAQs

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

The normal hire term is two weeks from your date of delivery. However, at the time you order your skip, you can provide a pick up date that is best for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if your skip is full sooner than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it removed at the earliest opportunity.

We will usually complete collections within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to keep in mind that this may not always be possible during busy periods. Once collected, the skip will be transported to a local waste transfer station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Will a skip hire company from Brierfield deliver my skip?

To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work with a wide range of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we can provide customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.

Will you deliver to other areas in Lancashire?

Absolutely. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we are able to provide skips to domestic and business customers across Lancashire and anywhere else in the UK.

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

A roll-on roll-off skip, often known as a RORO, is a large container that is used to get rid of large quantities of rubbish. These bins are mainly for commercial use but can be used by household customers as well. However, you should have a good amount of space since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger compared to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.

As a result of the size, roro containers can only be hired for light materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and bricks.

What types of waste materials can I put in the skip?

It is possible to load your skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly produced from home clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, top soil, stone, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.

What you put in your skip depends on which size you have ordered, because there is a weight restriction. For example, when you will be using a skip for heavy construction waste like rubble or dirt, the biggest size you could hire is an 8 cubic yard.

Some materials can not be discarded in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.

Is it okay to stack up waste in my skip?

Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this makes it unsafe to transport, and you will then have to remove any contents higher than the level load mark. This means that you can not use sheets of wood, doors or any other object, as this will increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal responsibility to make sure that bins aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure you choose the correct size of skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you’re uncertain which size you require. We would be glad to help.

How do you hire a skip in Brierfield?

Hiring a skip shouldn’t be hard. This is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, type in your address to see the range of skip sizes we are able to deliver to Brierfield. Choose the size you wish to hire, and confirm whether it will be delivered on your own property. Enter your details and make payment using our secure payment platform.

After your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with all your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.

Am I allowed to put electrical items in my skip?

No, you cannot dispose of old or unwanted electronic waste products in your skip. This includes such things as laptops or computers, cookers, dishwashers, refrigerators and computer monitors. Electric products can’t be thrown in a skip as they can contain dangerous materials and components.

As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.

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

No, you do not have to be at home when we deliver your skip. Providing we are able to access the place you need it delivered, we can manage everything.

When you are not likely to be in, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when placing the order. For instance, you might want the skip to be located on a particular area of your drive. Alternatively, you may want to ensure the skip doesn’t prevent use of your garage.

No matter what the case may be, simply tell us when you place your order, and we will ensure the instructions are passed on to the lorry driver.

What happens to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?

When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the various waste materials, such as timber, metals, paper, etc. This ensures that as much of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

When will my skip be delivered?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We can typically give a next day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip on private property, as to go on public property (for example a highway), you will have to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.

Due to numerous factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it to be delivered within a morning or afternoon slot.

How many different skip sizes are available?

Skips are offered in a number of sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small household tasks.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a fantastic option for garden shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more significant waste disposal job to sort out, a builder’s skip may be the best option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label implies, these are the most popular sizes hired by builders for construction waste, such as soil and rubble. However they can just as well be used for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also provide 10-16 cubic yard bins and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For additional information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

The mini skip will be the smallest size available from skip firms and is perfect for small DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies offer you a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

If I need a skip on the road in Brierfield, will I need to have a permit?

In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you want your skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or home, you must receive authorisation from the local authority in Brierfield, which is called a permit. If required, we would be happy to organise this on your behalf, and so it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for your skip license, and you should know before ordering that getting the licence will often take up to 2 working days.

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

The name builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. They are the biggest skips that can be used to get rid of weighty building and construction materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or clay.

The builders skip is ideal for a wide range of projects. If you are having an extension built, renovating your bathroom or clearing out the loft space, these large containers are often the most affordable solution available.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Brierfield?

This depends upon the skip size you require and if you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the cheapest choice. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used mainly in industrial settings.

Will my skip have a drop down door?

The majority of skip sizes can be supplied with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.

A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the container, especially with weighty materials, like dirt and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky objects, like pieces of furniture.

Other areas covered include Preston, Blackburn, Bacup, Accrington, Adlington, Colne, Barnoldswick and Lancaster.
