Cheadle (Staffordshire) Skip Hire FAQs
Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?
If you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is perfect for getting rid of heavy building and construction materials, as it can be walked in the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop-down door, though these are less common. The reason being these sizes are typically low enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to make sure a container with a drop door is provided.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
You can usually have your skip for as long as two weeks from your date of delivery. You are able to provide a preferred pick up day when you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us once you have finished, and we will arrange the collection. Generally, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer during hectic periods.
What sort of waste can you get rid of in a skip?
You are able to put a wide array of waste types into the skip. This can include wood, bathroom tiles, plastics or rubble from a house clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, dirt and stone from garden jobs are permitted too. Worktops and units from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in a skip.
There are, however, some materials that you cannot put in a skip due to the potential ecological or health risks they can trigger.
You can’t throw in your fridge freezer, computer monitor or old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things contain hazardous components in one type or another. They should be discarded separately from your general rubbish.
If you need hazardous waste removal, we might be able to schedule a separate collection for this waste. Feel free to email for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
Am I able to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
No, you can not dispose of old electronic waste items in a skip. This includes things such as laptops or computers, hobs, tumble dryers, refrigerators and television sets. Electrical products can’t be thrown in the skip because they can have dangerous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.

What is a mini skip?
When you have a small amount of rubbish to get rid of, a mini skip may be the ideal option. What size is described as a mini skip varies from company to company, determined by what sizes they offer.
The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to have a 3 cubic yard skip for their smallest option. The price is dependent on the specific size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for residential tasks such as modest DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
What happens to the rubbish in the skip?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get sorted into a range of waste types, such as wood, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!
When will the skip be delivered to me?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We can usually offer a next day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, as to be on public property (like a road), you must get a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it arriving within a morning or afternoon slot.
Can you deliver to other areas in Staffordshire?
We offer a national skip hire and waste management service using a network of approved and fully licensed local companies. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Cheadle, Burton upon Trent, Cannock, Penkridge or another location in Staffordshire, we are able to assist.
Do I need to be there when the skip is going to be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be there when anybody delivers something to your property. That enables you to make sure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be dropped just where you need it.
The same applies for those who have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.
However, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
The phrase builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yard skip. The term originates from the fact that they are the most typical sizes used by builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are suitable for numerous types of household and commercial jobs. These are the largest size skips which you can use for hefty builders waste like dirt, rubble and bricks.
Can I load the skip above the top?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it dangerous to move, and you will be asked to empty any rubbish higher than the level load mark. This means that you can not use sheets of wood, doors or any other object, since this will increase the size of the skip. We have a legal duty to make sure that containers are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure to hire the appropriate sized skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you’re uncertain which size is best. We would be pleased to help.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a massive container that can be used to dispose of large quantities of rubbish. These bins are predominantly for industrial use but can be hired by residential customers as well. However, you should have a good amount of room as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger in comparison to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.
Due to the size, roro skips can only be used for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and bricks.
What is the cost of skip hire in Cheadle?
This is determined by the skip size you require and if you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the cheapest choice. The most costly and largest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in business settings.

We utilize a network of both regional and nationwide providers to allow us to provide our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These companies are vetted to be sure they fulfill the high standards we require in terms of customer service, cost and environmental performance.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Cheadle?
This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if the skip will be on your private property, such as a driveway or on your company premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on your own land, you will save a few pounds.
What skip sizes do you provide?
Skips are available in a number of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is great for small domestic tasks.
Next up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold around 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is an excellent choice for loft clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more substantial waste disposal job to take on, a builder’s skip might be the most suitable choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name indicates, they are the most frequent sizes hired by builders for building waste, such as clay and stone. However, they can equally well be used for household waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We can also offer 10-16 yard containers and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For additional info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
