Broughton in Furness Skip Hire FAQs

Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?

I’m afraid not, as electrical items like old televisions, fridges, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects have to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly fashion.

Do I have to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

No, you do not have to be home when we deliver your skip. Provided that we are able to gain access to where you need it delivered, we can take care of everything.

When you will not be in, simply let us know any relevant delivery instructions when placing the order. For example, you might want the skip to be located at a particular part of the property. Alternatively, you might want to ensure the skip does not obstruct access to your garage.

No matter what the situation might be, provide the details when ordering, and we will ensure your directions will be passed on to the lorry driver.

How much waste will a builders skip hold?

The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These are the largest containers that can be used to get rid of substantial building and construction materials such as stone, concrete, rubble or clay.

A builders skip is great for a variety of projects. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing out your loft space, these big skips are often the most cost-effective solution available.

What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in a skip?

You can use a skip to discard lots of different waste types. We are experienced in collecting and processing lots of materials produced from construction work, garden landscaping and property clean-ups. Some examples of permitted waste products include:

  • Home furnishings
  • Garden trimmings
  • Soil
  • Hardcore
  • Bathroom suites
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Most waste types are generally allowed, and so whether you want to discard furniture, plastic materials, wood or fabric, we can normally take your waste away.

The quantity and things you discard in the skip will vary according to which size skip you chosen. All skips do have a weight limit for safety reasons. So to be able to dispose of garden soil and hardcore, for example, the biggest size container you would be able to use will be the 8 cubic yard skip.

What type of items am I not allowed to put in a skip?

There are several items that you will not be able to throw out in your skip. The reason behind this is that some goods include hazardous elements that may cause damage to the environment. They may also be hazardous to human health, so they have to be disposed of separately under UK law.

Examples of the products which are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer monitors
  • Battery packs
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Broughton in Furness?

Normally, it is possible to get a skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to get this done, you have got to have permission from your local council in Broughton in Furness, which is called a skip permit. We can order this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The council will impose a fee for this license, and it can sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Broughton in Furness?

This is determined by the skip size you need and if 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 expensive and largest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used primarily in business settings.

How large is a roll-on roll-off container?

A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge skip that is used to get rid of large quantities of rubbish. These bins are predominantly for industrial use but can be used by domestic customers also. Having said that, you should have a lot of space as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger when compared to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, roll-on roll-off skips can only be hired for light materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of soil and bricks.

What will happen to the rubbish in the skip?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into the different waste streams, including wood, metals, plastics, etc. This ensures that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How long can I keep the skip for?

You can normally keep your skip for as long as 2 weeks from the delivery date. You may give a preferred collection date when you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have finished, and then we will arrange the collection. Normally, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer during busy times.

How long will it take to get a skip in Broughton in Furness?

We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you have requested. The vast 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 your skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive, we try to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery area, as failed delivery attempts can lead to a charge for the wasted journey.

Am I allowed to load the skip above the top?

It is important to not overload a skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take off excess waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of what size you order, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, since transporting an overloaded container is hazardous, as materials could fall and result in personal injury or damage to other people.

To prevent this issue, please ensure you order a skip size suited to your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have more waste to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

For anyone who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is designed for disposing of heavy building and construction materials, as it can be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop down door, however they are more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically small enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our best to make sure a skip which has a drop door is delivered.

What is a mini skip?

If you have a small quantity of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip may be the ideal solution. What size is known as a mini skip is different from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they have.

The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. The price is based on the actual size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are ideal for residential jobs like small DIY projects and garden clean ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

How many different skip sizes are available?

We are able to provide a full-range of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip best for modest DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A popular option for larger sized projects, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

For Broughton in Furness companies which have a significant quantity of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.
