Dukinfield Skip Hire FAQs

Can I fill my skip higher than the level load line?

It is very important not to overload your skip, as you run the risk of being told to take off surplus waste prior to it being picked up. Regardless of what size you hire, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, as transporting an overloaded container can be dangerous, as rubbish could drop and cause injuries or damage to other people.

To avoid this issue, please ensure that you hire a size suited to your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some more waste to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These will be the biggest skips that can be used to dispose of heavy building and construction waste such as rock, concrete, gravel or dirt.

The builders skip is great for a wide array of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing the garage, these substantial containers will often be the most cost-effective choice available.

How do I hire a skip in Dukinfield?

Ordering a skip shouldn’t be difficult. That is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, enter in your delivery address to see the range of skip sizes we can deliver to Dukinfield. Pick the size you want to hire, and confirm if it will be delivered on your own property. Type in your details and make payment using our secure online payment platform.

When your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with all your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

Will my skip have a drop door?

Using a skip that has a drop door helps make filling rubbish into it so much easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste such as soil or rubble, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make throwing away large bulky objects such as household furniture easier as well.

Most skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, but this may sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when placing your booking if a door is needed, and we will do our best to supply this.

Will you deliver to other areas in Greater Manchester?

We offer a UK wide skip hire and recycling service through a network of approved and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Dukinfield, Westhoughton, Gatley, Marple or another site in Greater Manchester, we are able to help.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

It usually is best if you can be in when anyone delivers anything to your home. That allows you to ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed just where you want it.

The same thing goes for those who have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?

Once you have finished filling up your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility either in or local to Dukinfield where we sort the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Dukinfield?

Our aim is to give you the cheapest skip hire service in Dukinfield. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have a skip positioned on the street or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the extra cost of a skip permit.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a large container that is used to get rid of large amounts of waste. These bins are primarily for business use but can be hired by residential customers too. However, you need a good amount of space since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger in comparison to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

As a result of the size, RORO containers can only be hired for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and rubble.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you confirm your order before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver, we try to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery position, as failed delivery attempts can lead to a charge for the wasted trip.

Will a Dukinfield skip hire company deliver my skip?

Since we provide a national waste management service, we utilise a diverse network of verified businesses. These range from small family-run skip hire companies to national waste management service providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental standards.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

If you are looking for a cheap skip to dispose of some household rubbish, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to deal with many jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be located on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.

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

What skip sizes can you offer?

Skips come in a variety of different sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small household jobs.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a fantastic choice for garden clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to deal with, the builder’s skip might be the most suitable option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name suggests, these are the most common sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, including soil and hardcore. However they can equally well be used for household rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen units.

We also offer 10-16 cubic yard skips and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Dukinfield?

If possible, you should have the skip left on to a hard surface area. If you are doing a household task, then a driveway is going to be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public land, you will have to have a permit from the local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be located on the street, grass verge as well as other public property in Dukinfield. If this is required, we will request the permit to be granted for you. An additional fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.

Can I throw away electronic products in my skip?

No, you can not dispose of old or broken electronic waste products in your skip. This includes items like computers, hobs, tumble dryers, freezers and computer monitors. Electrical objects can’t be discarded in the skip as they can have dangerous materials and components.

Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.

Can I dispose of all kinds of rubbish in the skip?

You can use a skip to throw out lots of different waste types. We are experienced in picking up and handling a multitude of items from construction work, garden landscaping and property clean-ups. Some examples of permitted waste materials include things like:

  • Home furniture
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Garden soil
  • Stone
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Most waste types are allowed, therefore whether you would like to get rid of metals, plastics, timber or clothing, we can normally take your rubbish away.

The volume and items you throw in the skip can vary according to which size skip you have ordered. Skips have a weight limit for safety. So if you need to dispose of garden soil and concrete, as an example, the biggest size container you will be allowed to use will be the 8 yard builders skip.

What sort of materials am I not allowed to put in a skip?

There are a few waste items which you are not permitted to discard in the skip. The main reason for this is that these goods contain hazardous components which could be harmful to the environment. They can even be dangerous to human health, and so they have to be disposed of separately under UK law.

A few of the products which are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How long can I keep the skip for?

Usually, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you do not need to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.

Other areas covered include Westhoughton, Gatley, Marple, Romiley, Leigh, Horwich, Stockport and Sale.
