Earby Skip Hire FAQs

Will a skip hire company from Earby deliver my skip?

A local skip hire firm will likely deliver your skip in Earby. We utilize a network of both local and nationwide providers to enable us to provide our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are thoroughly vetted to make certain they meet the high principles we demand with regards to customer service, cost and environmental performance.

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

No, you cannot put old or unwanted electronic waste products in your skip. This includes items like laptops, hobs, tumble dryers, refrigerators and televisions. These objects can’t be discarded in your skip because they can contain hazardous materials and components.

As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.

Is it okay to fill my skip higher than level load line?

Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it hazardous to move, and you will probably be asked to empty any contents over the level load line. This means that you are unable to use sheets of wood, doors or another object, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty to ensure that skips aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please be sure to choose the appropriate sized skip for your needs and get in touch if you’re uncertain which size is best. We will be glad to help.

Where will you take the waste from my skip?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into the different waste materials, including timber, metals, paper, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How many different skip sizes are available?

Our company offers a full selection of skip capacities to domestic and commercial customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the massive 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

Below are the various sizes you can choose from, with a rough guide to the amount of rubbish each skip is capable of holding:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
  • 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags

How large is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest skip offered by skip companies and is designed for smaller DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies offer you a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

Do I need to stay in when the skip is delivered?

No, you do not have to be at home when we deliver your skip. So long as we are able to gain access to where you want it located, we are able to manage it all.

If you will not be at home, simply let us have any relevant delivery instructions when you place the order. For instance, you might prefer the skip to be positioned at a particular side of your property. Or you may need to ensure the skip does not hinder entry to your garage.

Whatever the case may be, simply let us know when ordering, and then we will make sure the instructions are passed to the lorry driver.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are huge industrial scale skips that are used mainly in the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for organisations that produce significant volumes of waste materials.

If I require a skip on the road in Earby, will I need to get a permit?

This depends upon where the skip is going to be located. You will only require a skip permit if it is placed on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if your skip will be on your private property, like a driveway or inside your company premises.

If you need to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can place the skip on your own property, it will save you some pounds.

What is classed as a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most commonly hired for building work. There are usually two sizes which can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that can be used to get rid of large amounts of construction and demolition materials, like garden soil, rubble and stone.

Even though they are labelled a builders skip, these can be used for various other domestic and commercial waste disposal tasks.

What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Earby?

This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you would like to hire. Tell us whether the skip is going to be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or council property (like the street). After that, pick the day you need your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to Earby on the date you have selected.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Earby?

To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Earby, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you the sizes we offer in your location and how much each one will cost you to hire. If your skip is going on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.

How long can I keep a skip for?

You can normally keep the skip for as many as 2 weeks from your delivery date. It is possible to give a preferred collection day when you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us after you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare your collection. Generally, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer over hectic periods.

Can you deliver skips across Lancashire?

Of course, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skip sizes to locations across Lancashire, such as Earby, Lancaster, Bacup and Great Harwood. So wherever you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

Generally, most skips can be provided with a drop down door, dependant upon size, availability and location. If you want a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip with a drop door is primarily useful if hiring a big builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow your rubbish directly into the skip. This is not so important for mini and midi skips, as they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What waste materials can I put in the skip?

You are allowed to fill up the skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly produced from loft clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, top soil, stone, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.

What you put in the skip will depend on the skip size you have ordered, as there is a weight limit. For example, when you will be using a skip for heavy building waste including concrete or dirt, the biggest size you could get is an 8 yard skip.

Some materials can not be disposed of in a skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.

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

If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the following day. Sometimes, we will even give you a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed when going through the online order process.

Other areas covered include Lancaster, Bacup, Great Harwood, Church, Clayton-le-Moors, Darwen, Poulton-le-Fylde and Clitheroe.
