Congleton Skip Hire FAQs
Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be at home when we deliver your skip. Provided that we are able to access the place you want it delivered, we can manage it all.
In the event you are not likely to be in, just let us know any relevant delivery instructions when you book the order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be located at a particular side of the driveway. Or you might need to ensure that the skip does not prevent use of your garage.
Whatever the case might be, simply let us know when you place your order, and then we will ensure the instructions will be passed to the lorry driver.
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric goods must be kept separate from general waste to be recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric goods including washing machines, monitors, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a substantial container that is used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These containers are primarily for business use but can be used by household clients too. Having said that, you need a good amount of room because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger when compared to the average skip you will see on the roadside.
Due to the size, RORO containers can only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and rubble.
Am I allowed to put all types of waste in the skip?
This is one of the most popular questions people have about skip hire. The main thing to consider is that you can fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of types of waste that could come from garden projects, construction work and property clearances.
Some of the most common items that we see in skips include dirt, timber, tree cuttings, kitchen units, bathroom suites, as well as other household items.
There are some waste materials that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This can include any electrical items (refrigerators, monitors and cookers for example), old car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all deemed hazardous waste, and therefore getting rid of them needs to adhere to a completely different process to make sure they don’t cause damage to the environment.
Am I able to have a skip that has a drop down door?
Generally speaking, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop down door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip that has a drop door is mainly beneficial when choosing a big builder’s skip, since it allows you to wheelbarrow rubbish into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, because they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How big is the mini skip?
For those who have a small quantity of waste to throw out, a mini skip might be the perfect option. What size is called a mini skip differs from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they offer.
2 cubic yards is probably the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. The cost is based on the specific size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are great for residential work such as modest DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Congleton?
This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if your skip is on your private property, such as a drive or inside your company premises.
Should you need to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, so we can make the required arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place your skip on your own property, it will save you a few pounds.
Is it ok to fill my skip higher than the level load mark?
It is vital to never overload the skip. You should not pass the level load line that is shown on the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it is very dangerous to transport. This means that when you overfill the skip, you could be required to take away the surplus waste. However safe you think the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This can be unsafe and is prohibited.
What will happen to my rubbish once the skip is picked up?
When you have finished with your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Congleton where we segregate the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we can’t promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You should make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will in most cases incur a fee for the wasted trip.

Of course, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skips to locations throughout Cheshire, such as Congleton, Macclesfield, Knutsford and Runcorn. So wherever you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can generally hire the skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you have the option of providing a preferred collection date when making your order.
Alternatively, simply tell us when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It could take a little while longer to collect your skip over busy periods, however we will always endeavour to come as quickly as possible.
What skip sizes can you deliver?
We can provide a wide range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip perfect for modest DIY tasks and house clearances. A common choice for larger sized jobs, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Congleton firms which generate a large volume of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How much waste can a builders skip hold?
The term builders skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. The name comes from the fact that these are the most popular sizes hired by builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are suited to a wide variety of household and industrial projects. They are the largest size skips that can be used for heavy builders waste including dirt, stone and concrete.
