Buckley Skip Hire FAQs
Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
Electric powered objects such as television sets, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste type and so cannot be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic products must be segregated from other rubbish. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly manner.
Will you deliver to other areas in Clwyd?
Yes. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we are able to provide skips to both residential and commercial customers across Clwyd and anywhere else within the UK.
How many different skip sizes are available?
We supply a full range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip perfect for small DIY projects and house clearances. A popular option for larger tasks, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Buckley businesses which have a big amount of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Am I allowed to dispose of all sorts of waste in a skip?
It is possible to throw a wide array of waste types into the skip. This can include wood, tile, plastics or concrete from a property clearance. Plant and bush clippings, dirt and rock from garden work is permitted too. Worktops and units from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in the skip.
However, there are a few items that you are not allowed to put in a skip because of the potential environment or health risk they may trigger.
You cannot throw out your refrigerator, computer monitor or your old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things contain hazardous materials in one kind or another. They need to be disposed of separately from normal waste.
If you want hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to arrange an independent collection for this material. Feel free to get in touch for further information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is the most common skip used across the country. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builders skip is ideal for most building and demolition work, which is where the name originates from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip is the largest option that can be used for hefty materials like soil, concrete, stone and gravel.
How much does skip hire in Buckley cost?
Our aim is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Buckley. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have a skip located on the street or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the extra expense of a skip permit.
Will a skip hire company from Buckley deliver my skip?
We use a network of both local and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our customers in Buckley and the rest of the UK. All of our partner skip hire companies are approved and tested to guarantee they match our standards for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
How do I hire a skip?
Ordering a skip should not be difficult. This is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, type in your delivery address to look at the range of skips we are able to deliver to Buckley. Choose which size you want to order, and confirm if it is going to be positioned on your own property. Enter your details and then make payment using our secure online payment platform.
As soon as your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
When you have finished with your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Buckley where we will sort the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you have asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will normally have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we try to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery spot, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can result in a fee for a wasted journey.
Can I fill the skip higher than the side?
No. You can only fill up your skip up to the level load line. Stacking rubbish up above this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you may be told to get rid of the extra waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
For anyone who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is perfect for getting rid of heavy building and demolition materials, as it can be pushed in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop door, although they are less common. This is because these sizes are generally low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our utmost to make sure a container with a drop door is supplied.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to transport huge quantities of waste. Mostly, these containers are hired for commercial uses. However, domestic clients can also order them. It is important to take into account the area they will take up, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be hired for light materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of dirt and rubble.
If I require a skip on a road in Buckley, will I need to get a permit?
This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a permit when it is placed on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit when your skip will be on private property, like a drive or within your business premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on your own property, it will save you a few pounds.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can typically hire a skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the collection will be as convenient as possible, you have the option of offering a preferred collection date when placing your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you have finished loading up the skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the following working day.
It might take a little longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, but we will always endeavour to be there as quickly as possible.
How much waste will the mini skip hold?
When you have a small quantity of rubbish to dispose of, the mini skip might be the perfect choice. What size is called a mini skip differs from business to business, depending on what sizes they provide.
2 cubic yards is probably the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The price is dependent on the specific size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are great for residential jobs like modest DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
Should I be in when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t have to be home when the skip is delivered, however it can help. Being home whenever the skip is delivered means that you can ensure the driver can be given full access and that your skip will be located precisely where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is being hired to a company premises, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Even so, for those who can’t be around at the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you place your order, and then we will arrange things from there.
