Cheadle Hulme Skip Hire FAQs

Am I allowed to throw all kinds of waste in the skip?

You may use a skip to discard a variety of waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and processing numerous materials produced from construction work, garden landscaping and household clean-ups. Some examples of allowed waste materials include:

  • Furniture
  • Hedge cuttings
  • Top soil
  • Bricks and rubble
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many waste types are generally accepted, therefore whether you need to discard furniture, plastics, wood or fabric, we can normally take your waste away.

The volume and things you discard in your skip will vary according to the size skip you have hired. Skips do have a weight limit for safety purposes. So if you need to get rid of garden soil and concrete, for example, the largest size you would be permitted to use will be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

What type of materials am I not allowed to put in my skip?

There are some waste items that you will not be permitted to dispose of in your skip. The reason for this is that some goods include hazardous components which may be damaging to the environment. They can also be hazardous to human health, so they have to be discarded separately under UK laws.

A few examples of the items which are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?

The roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a large skip used to dispose of large quantities of rubbish. These containers are primarily for commercial use but can be hired by household customers as well. However, you will require a good amount of room because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger than the average 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 cardboard, so they are not appropriate for disposing of concrete and rubble.

Am I able to get a skip which has a drop door?

For anyone who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is perfect for getting rid of heavy building and demolition materials, as it can be walked in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop door, although they are less common. This is because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you want a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to make sure a container which has a drop door is delivered.

If I need a skip on a road in Cheadle Hulme, will I need a permit?

Preferably, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface. If you are doing a household project, then the driveway is going to be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. On the other hand, when neither is available, the road or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public land, you need to have a permit from your local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be dropped on the street, grass verge or other public property in Cheadle Hulme. If this is needed, we will request the license to be issued for you. An additional charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.

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

It is usually a good idea to be in when anybody delivers something to your property. That enables you to make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be placed exactly where you want it.

The same applies for those who have a business. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.

Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.

Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?

Electric powered products like TVs, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore can not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric products must be separated from other materials. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly manner.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

You can generally keep the skip for up to a fortnight from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, you have the choice of providing a preferred collection day when placing your order.

Alternatively, simply tell us when you’ve finished loading up your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.

Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?

It is important never to overload a skip. You can not pass the level load mark indicated along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it can be very dangerous to transport. This means that if you overfill your skip, you might be required to take off the excess rubbish. Regardless of how safe you believe the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. That is dangerous and is therefore prohibited.

What are the different skip sizes to pick from?

Skips are offered in a wide range of sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small domestic jobs.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold roughly 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent option for garage clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more significant waste disposal job to undertake, the builder’s skip may be the best choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name suggests, they are the most popular sizes used by builders for building waste, like soil and rubble. However they can equally well be hired for household rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also supply 10-16 cubic yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest skip delivered by skip companies and is ideal for small DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some companies offer you a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

Other areas covered include Hyde, Eccles, Droylsden, Royton, Manchester, Worsley, Hindley and Ashton-in-Makerfield.
