Burnley Skip Hire FAQs

Will the skip have a drop down door?

In general, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, depending on the size, availability and area. If you need a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Having a skip with a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, because it allows you to wheelbarrow waste directly into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, because they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How much will skip hire in Burnley cost?

Our goal is to offer the lowest priced skip hire service in Burnley. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you wish to have the skip situated on the road or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of a skip permit.

What will happen to the rubbish?

Once you have finished filling your skip, we come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility in or local to Burnley where we will sort the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are great for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them ideal for driveways.

They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and old baby toys to paving slabs and garden soil. With a volume of around 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you having to make several visits to your local recycling centre.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

Usually, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.

Will a Burnley skip hire company deliver my skip?

A local skip company will likely deliver your skip in Burnley. We employ a network of both local and nationwide companies to enable us to provide our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are comprehensively assessed to ensure they satisfy the high expectations we require regarding customer service, cost and environmental performance.

Will you deliver skips across Lancashire?

Along with delivering skips to Burnley, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Lancashire. Through our network of local and national waste management companies, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business in Burnley, Nelson or Kirkham, we have got it covered.

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

Prior to hiring your skip, you must check that the type of waste you wish to dispose of is allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.

A few examples of waste types you could put in your skip include home goods like furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use a skip to get rid of building and construction waste, including bricks, top soil, stone, metals and gravel.

Examples of prohibited items include electrical items, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from general waste.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often hired for building and demolition projects. There are typically two different skip sizes which can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips which can be used to dispose of significant quantities of building and demolition waste materials, like earth, concrete and bricks.

Although they are branded a builders skip, these can of course be used for multiple other household and industrial waste disposal tasks.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?

No, you don’t need to be home when we deliver the skip. As long as we can gain access to where you need it delivered, we will manage it all.

In case you will not be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when booking the order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be positioned at a particular area of the driveway. Alternatively, you may want to ensure that the skip does not prevent use of your garage.

No matter what the situation may be, simply let us know when ordering, and then we will ensure your directions are passed to the lorry driver.

If I require a skip on the road in Burnley, will I need to get a permit?

Ideally, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. For anybody who is doing a domestic task, then the driveway will be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public land, you will have to obtain a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge or other public property in Burnley. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be issued on your behalf. An extra cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

How do I order a skip in Burnley?

Ordering a skip should not be difficult. That is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, enter in your postcode to look at the range of skip sizes we can deliver to Burnley. Pick the size you would like to hire, and confirm whether it is going to be delivered on private property. Type in your details and make payment using our secure online payment platform.

When your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with all of your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

Can I throw electronic items in the skip?

Unfortunately it is not permitted, because electronic items such as old TVs, freezers, laptops and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly fashion.

Is it okay to fill the skip above the side?

It is important not to overfill your skip, as you risk being asked to remove surplus waste prior to it being collected. No matter what size you order, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, as transporting an overloaded bin is dangerous, as materials could drop and lead to injury or damage to others.

To avoid this situation, please make sure you order a skip size suitable for your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some more waste to get rid of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a date that suits you. We can usually offer a following day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, as to go on public property (like a road), you must obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of 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 in a morning or afternoon slot.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big industrial scale skips that are used predominantly within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for businesses that generate significant amounts of waste.

Other areas covered include Nelson, Kirkham, Carnforth, Garstang, Haslingden, Brierfield, Fleetwood and Fulwood.
