Clitheroe Skip Hire FAQs

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Clitheroe?

To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Clitheroe, insert your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display the sizes we provide in your town and how much each option will cost you to hire. If your skip will be on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.

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

No, you do not have to be at home when we deliver your skip. Providing we can access where you want it delivered, we will manage it all.

In case you are not going to be at home, simply let us have any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For instance, you may want the skip to be dropped at a particular area of the driveway. Or you might want to ensure that the skip does not block access to your garage.

Whatever the case may be, simply let us know when you place your order, and we will make sure your directions will be passed to the delivery driver.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

The roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a substantial container that is used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These skips are predominantly for industrial use but can be hired by residential customers as well. Having said that, you will want lots of space as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger in comparison to the typical skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.

As a result of the size, roro containers can only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and bricks.

What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?

The rubbish in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling facility. Here the rubbish will be sorted by machines and also by hand into various waste streams, including metal, paper, concrete and timber. Sorting the waste in this way helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.

Is it ok to fill the skip higher than the top?

No, you must only load the skip up to the level load line. Piling waste materials up over this line would make it unsafe to transport, and you can be told to take off the surplus waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

Normally, you can have a skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.

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

When you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we can even provide a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed during the order process.

How can I order a skip online?

This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us if the skip is going to be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or public property (like the street). Next, choose the day you want your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. Job done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Clitheroe on the day you have selected.

Will you deliver skips across Lancashire?

Yes, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skip sizes to areas throughout Lancashire, such as Clitheroe, Skelmersdale, Bacup and Whitworth. So regardless of where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

Generally speaking, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you require a drop door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Having a skip that has a drop door is mainly helpful when you are choosing a big builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, as they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What is a mini skip?

For those who have a small amount of waste to get rid of, the mini skip may be the best solution. What size is described as a mini skip varies from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they provide.

2 cubic yards is the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 yard container as their smallest option. The cost depends on the actual size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are ideal for domestic tasks including small DIY projects and garage 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 great choice.

Can I dispose of electronic items in my skip?

No, you can not dispose of old electronic waste items in your skip. This can include things such as computers, microwaves, dishwashers, fridges and monitors. Electrical products can’t be discarded in the skip because they can have hazardous materials and components.

Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Clitheroe?

We use a network of both regional and national skip hire companies to supply skips to our clients in Clitheroe and the rest of the UK. All of our partner skip hire providers are verified and tested to make certain they match our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Clitheroe?

In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you want your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or house, you will need to secure permission from your local council in Clitheroe, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we would gladly arrange this for you, so it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the road permit, plus you should be aware before ordering that getting the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.

What are the different skip sizes to pick from?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Clitheroe, you have various sizes to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for small domestic clearances and DIY jobs.

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

After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most common sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also means they are ideal for house tidy ups including bulky objects like pieces of furniture and beds.

We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people with even larger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only suited to light materials, so they can not be hired to dispose of soil or concrete.

For additional details about the various sizes offered, such as measurements, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.

What types of rubbish am I able to dispose of in a skip?

Prior to ordering your skip, it is essential to make sure that the sort of waste you intend to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials must be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

Examples of waste types it is possible to throw in your skip include household items like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use your skip to dispose of building and construction rubbish, such as timber, soil, stone, metals and gravel.

Some examples of forbidden items include things like electrical products, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore must be discarded separately from any general waste.

How much waste will a builders skip hold?

The builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. They are the largest skips that can be hired to dispose of heavy building and construction waste such as stone, bricks, gravel or clay.

The builder’s skip is perfect for a wide range of jobs. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing out the garage, these big containers are often the most cost-effective solution available.

Other areas covered include Skelmersdale, Bacup, Whitworth, Longridge, Earby, Chorley, Darwen and Blackpool.
