Droylsden Skip Hire FAQs
What size is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low cost skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to tackle many jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be positioned on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.
Although most frequently hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.
Should I be in when the skip is delivered?
No, you don’t need to be home when we deliver the skip. As long as we are able to gain access to where you need it delivered, we will take care of everything.
In the event you are not going to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you place your order. For instance, you might prefer the skip to be positioned at a particular part of your property. Or you might want to ensure that the skip does not obstruct access to your garage.
Whatever the situation might be, let us know when you place your order, and then we will make sure your instructions are passed to the delivery driver.
Will a skip hire company from Droylsden deliver my skip?
To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work with a wide range of local and national businesses. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
You can fill your skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from garage clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you throw in your skip depends on which size you have hired, because there is a weight restriction. For example, when you will be using a skip for heavy building waste such as bricks or top soil, the biggest size you would be able to get is an 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in a skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip means the size of skip most often supplied for construction and demolition jobs. There are usually two sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that can be used to get rid of large amounts of building and demolition waste materials, like soil, concrete and stone.
Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can be used for multiple other household and business waste disposal tasks.
Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Droylsden?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit when your skip is on your private property, such as a drive or inside your company premises.
If you have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on your own land, you will save a few pounds.
What skip sizes have got a drop down door?
If you are selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is designed for disposing of hefty building and construction rubbish, as it can be pushed into the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop-down door, although these are more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically low 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 very best to make sure a container that has a drop door is delivered.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Droylsden, you have various sizes to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for modest home clearances and DIY work.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also makes them ideal for household clearances including large items such as household furniture and beds.
We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only suitable for light waste, so they can not be hired to get rid of garden soil or stone.
For more information regarding the various capacities offered, including measurements, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you run a company in Droylsden and need to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a fantastic option. Available in 20 – 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips that can be hired.
As the name implies, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to regular skips, which are picked up using chains.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can normally supply skips to Droylsden the next working day when your order is made before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking system gives you a variety of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you want the skip delivered ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, since electronic items including old televisions, fridge freezers, laptops and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items need to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly fashion.
Is it okay to pile up the waste in my skip?
It is essential to not overfill the skip. You can not pass the level load line indicated along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it can be very unsafe to transport. Which means that when you overfill your skip, you might be required to remove the excess waste. Regardless of how safe you feel the skip to be, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be hazardous and is not allowed.
