Colne Skip Hire FAQs

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

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container that can be used to get rid of significant volumes of waste materials. Generally, these skips are used for industrial uses. Having said that, household clients can also hire them. It is important to think about the space they occupy, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be utilised for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and concrete.

What is the cost of skip hire in Colne?

This will depend on the skip size you need and if you will 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 choice is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Colne?

In the vast majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you want the skip to be placed on land outside of your business or house, you need to obtain authorisation from the local council in Colne, which is called a permit. If required, we will gladly organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council will charge a fee for your skip license, and you should be aware before ordering that getting the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.

How long can I hire the skip for?

Our standard hire period will be 14 days from your date of delivery. Having said that, when you order your skip, you can provide a collection date that is best for you. Of course, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is full earlier than expected, let us know, and we will pick it up at the earliest opportunity.

We will normally be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. But, it is important to bear in mind this may not always be possible during busy times. Once collected, your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

How large is the mini skip?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some household rubbish, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to handle numerous jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be placed on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.

Although most often chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can even handle small commercial jobs.

Where will the waste be taken to once the skip is collected?

As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into the different waste streams, like timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?

No, you cannot dispose of old or broken electronic waste products in a skip. This can include things such as laptops or computers, hobs, washing machines, freezers and monitors. These items can’t be thrown in a skip since they can have hazardous materials and components.

As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.

What things can I put in the skip?

You are allowed to put a wide array of waste in the skip. This includes timber, floor tiles, plastics or rubble from a house clearance. Plant and bush clippings, soil and stone from garden jobs are allowed also. Units from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be thrown in the skip.

There are, however, things that can’t be put in a skip because of the possible ecological or health risks they could trigger.

You can’t get rid of your fridge freezer, laptop or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these items contain hazardous elements in one type or another. They must be disposed of separately from your general waste.

Should you require hazardous waste removal, we may be able to organise an independent collection for this waste. Please email for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

Skips come in a variety of sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is perfect for small domestic tasks.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a great choice for loft clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to sort out, a builder’s skip could be the best option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name suggests, these represent the most frequent sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, including soil and rubble. However they can just as well be used for domestic waste such as old furniture or kitchen units.

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

Guide to skip sizes

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

You should not fill a skip beyond the level load mark. When you fill it over the tip of this mark, it means your skip is not secure to transport, and you can be asked to take off the excess rubbish prior to it being collected.

Will you deliver to other areas in Lancashire?

Yes. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we are able to deliver skips to both domestic and business customers throughout Lancashire and anywhere else within the UK.

Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?

You don’t have to be at home when the skip will be delivered, but it can help. Being in when the skip is due to be delivered means you can ensure the driver is given full access and that your skip will be located exactly where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is hired to a business property, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

However, when you can’t be available for the delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask that you let us know when you place the order, and then we will organise things from there.

What is a builder’s skip?

The term builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The term stems from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are ordered by builders and tradespeople.

These substantial skips are perfect for numerous household and business tasks. They are the largest skip sizes that you can use for weighty builders waste such as garden soil, rubble and gravel.

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

We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you complete your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver, we strive to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

We use a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our customers in Colne and the rest of the country. All of our partner skip companies are approved and evaluated to make certain they satisfy our standards for cost, service, recycling and reliability.

Will the skip be supplied with a drop door?

When you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is made for getting rid of hefty building and construction materials, as it can be walked in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

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

If you need a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our best to make sure a skip that has a drop door is supplied.

Other areas covered include Lytham St Anne’s, Bacup, Bamber Bridge, Chorley, Barnoldswick, Heysham, Poulton-le-Fylde and Freckleton.
