Bury Skip Hire FAQs

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can typically have the skip for up to two weeks from the date of delivery. You may give a preferred collection day when you place your order. Alternatively, you can tell us when you have finished with the skip, and we will arrange your collection. Normally, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during hectic periods.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Bury?

This will depend on the skip size you want and whether you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the cheapest option. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in business settings.

What can I put in the skip?

Prior to hiring a skip, you must check that the kind of waste you want to get rid of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Examples of waste types you are able to throw in your skip include home items like furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use a skip to dispose of building and demolition waste, such as old bricks, soil, stone, metals and concrete.

Some examples of prohibited items include things like electronic goods, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from your general waste.

Am I able to put electronic products in the skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items need to be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electronic goods like washing machines, TVs, toasters, laptops and even hairdryers.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Bury?

This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only need a permit when it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if your skip will be on private property, such as a drive or inside your business premises.

If you need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, and we can make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have the skip on private property, you will save some pounds.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a huge container that is used to dispose of large quantities of rubbish. These skips are mainly for business use but can be used by domestic clients as well. Having said that, you need lots of room because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger than the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.

Due to the size, roro containers should only be provided for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and bricks.

Will a skip hire company from Bury deliver my skip?

As we provide a UK-wide skip service, we use a comprehensive network of verified companies. These can include small family-run skip hire firms to nationwide waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to ensure they meet our high customer service and environmental requirements.

Is it okay to stack up waste in my skip?

Unfortunately not. You can only pack your skip up to the level load mark. Loading rubbish up over this line will make it dangerous to move, and you may be asked to remove the surplus waste before the skip can be removed. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.

How do I order a skip in Bury?

You can then pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered on the date selected.

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

When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can make sure the lorry has full access and that the skip will be placed exactly where you need it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates limit access.

However, if that isn’t feasible, you don’t need to be concerned. Just let us know when you are placing your booking, and then we will take care of everything.

What is a mini skip?

When you have a small quantity of waste to dispose of, a mini skip could be the best choice. What size is identified as a mini skip is different from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they provide.

2 cubic yards is considered the most common size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 yard container for their smallest option. Price depends on the particular size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are best for residential work including small DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

How long will it take to get a skip in Bury?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We can normally offer you a next day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, as to be on public property (for example a road), you will have to gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to numerous factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it arriving within a AM or PM slot.

What size skips have a drop door?

Nearly all containers can be supplied with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.

Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the skip, particularly with heavy materials, such as garden soil and gravel, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, like household furniture.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is regarded as the common skip which is hired across the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is ideal for most building work, which is where the name stems from.

The 8 yard builders skip is the biggest size which can be used for hefty waste matter like garden soil, concrete, stone and rubble.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip?

If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste gets segregated into various waste types, which includes stone, metals and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the collection is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

Other areas covered include Standish, Cheadle, Milnrow, Partington, Irlam, Royton, Ramsbottom and Farnworth.
