Carnforth Skip Hire FAQs

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

If you are looking for a low cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, the mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to take on many jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.

Although most commonly chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also tackle smaller commercial jobs.

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

The builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These are the largest skips that can be hired to get rid of heavy building and construction materials such as rock, concrete, gravel or clay.

A builders skip is perfect for a wide range of tasks. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing the shed, these large skips are usually the most cost-effective choice available.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Carnforth, you have several sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for modest household clearances and DIY work.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also makes them ideal for house tidy ups including large items like household furniture and beds.

We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people and businesses with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These sizes are only appropriate for light waste, so they can not be used to dispose of garden soil or rubble.

To get more information regarding the different capacities available, such as measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Is it possible to get a skip that has a drop door?

In general, almost all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip that has a drop door is primarily beneficial if choosing a big builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow waste directly into the skip. This isn’t so important for midi and mini skips, since they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What kinds of waste can you throw in a skip?

This is one of the most popular questions people have about skip hire. The main thing to remember is that you may load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of waste that can come from garden projects, construction work and home clearances.

Among the most common things that we collect in skips include garden soil, wood, tree cuttings, cabinets, toilets, and various household objects.

There are some items that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This can include any electronic products (fridges and freezers, televisions and computers for example), car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. They are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and therefore getting rid of them needs to follow an entirely different process to ensure they do not result in harm to the environment.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

Our standard hire period is a fortnight from your delivery date. However, when you order the skip, you can tell us a collection date that is perfect for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is finished with sooner than anticipated, contact us, and we will get it collected at the earliest opportunity.

We can usually make collections within 48 hours. But, it is important to bear in mind this may not be possible at busy times. Once collected, the waste will be taken to your local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed and sorted.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will make sure your skip will be delivered on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the following day.

Although we cannot guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

These can range from small local skip hire businesses to national waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental requirements.

Can I throw away electrical items in my skip?

Electric powered objects like television sets, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore should not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered items need to be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.

Can I fill the skip higher than the level load mark?

You should not fill up a skip beyond the level load mark. When you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be safe to transport, and you might be asked to take off any excess rubbish before it can be collected.

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large commercial size skips used mainly in the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for companies that generate significant quantities of waste materials.

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

No, you don’t need to be at home when we deliver your skip. So long as we are able to gain access to where you need it positioned, we can take care of everything.

For those who are not likely to be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery instructions when you place your order. For instance, you may need the skip to be located on a particular side of your drive. Alternatively, you may want to be sure that the skip doesn’t block entry to your garage.

No matter what the situation might be, let us know when you place your order, and we will make sure your instructions are passed on to the lorry driver.

Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Carnforth?

In most cases, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you want the skip to be located on land outside of your company or residence, you will need to receive authorisation from the local authority in Carnforth, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we would be happy to arrange this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less issue to worry about. The council will charge a fee for your road permit, plus you should know before ordering that securing the permit will often take up to two working days.

Where does the waste be taken to once the skip is picked up?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the various waste streams, including wood, metals, plastics, etc. This ensures that as much of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Other areas covered include Colne, Bacup, Leyland, Darwen, Nelson, Trawden, Barrowford and Freckleton.
