Eccles Skip Hire FAQs

How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a massive skip that is used to get rid of large amounts of rubbish. These skips are mainly for commercial use but can be used by domestic customers also. Having said that, you need a lot of room because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger when compared to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.

Due to the size, roro skips can only be hired for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for disposing of concrete and rubble.

What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Eccles?

Ordering a skip in Eccles through us is very straightforward. Choose the skip size you want and then enter a handful of details about where and when you would like the skip to be delivered. You can then pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered to you.

What is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a cheap skip to dispose of some domestic waste, the mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to tackle numerous jobs.

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

Although most commonly hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

You can in most cases have the skip for as many as 14 days from your delivery date. It is possible to give a preferred collection date at the time you place your order. Alternatively, you can let us know after you have finished, and we will arrange the collection. Generally, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during hectic periods.

How long does it take to get a skip in Eccles?

We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure 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 prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver, we strive to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery area, as failed deliveries can result in a fee for the wasted trip.

Do you deliver skips across Greater Manchester?

Absolutely. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we are able to provide skips to both domestic and business customers throughout Greater Manchester and anywhere else in the UK.

How much does skip hire in Eccles cost?

This depends upon the size you require and whether you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the cheapest option. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used mainly in industrial settings.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Eccles?

Since we offer a UK-wide skip service, we use a diverse network of verified and approved companies. These can range from small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental requirements.

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

No, you cannot put old electronic waste products in a skip. This includes things like laptops or computers, cookers, washing machines, freezers and television sets. These objects can’t be discarded in your 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.

What types of waste materials can I put in a skip?

Your skip can be hired to get rid of a variety of types of waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and handling a multitude of items produced from construction jobs, garden projects and house clearances. Examples of permitted waste types include things like:

  • Household furniture
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Soil
  • Stone
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Cabinets and units

Many different waste materials are generally allowed, so whether you want to discard furniture, plastic materials, wood or clothing, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The volume and materials you discard in the skip may vary depending on the size skip you chosen. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you want to dispose of top soil and gravel, as an example, the largest size container you will be permitted to use will be the 8 cubic yard skip.

Are there any items that I can’t throw in the skip?

There are several items which you will not be permitted to put in your skip. The reason for this is that these goods include hazardous materials which may cause harm to the environment. They could also be hazardous to human health, therefore they need to be discarded separately within UK laws.

Some examples of the items that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC screens
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Eccles?

Preferably, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface. When you are doing a residential job, then your driveway is going to be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. However, when neither is available, the road or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public property, you will have to get a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be placed on the street, grass verge as well as other public property in Eccles. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be issued for you. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.

What will happen to the waste in the skip?

The materials in the skip will be taken to the local waste recycling facility. Here the contents will be separated by machines and also by hand into numerous waste streams, including soil, paper, hardcore and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

No, you do not need to be home when we deliver your skip. Providing we can access the place you need it positioned, we are able to take care of everything.

In the event you will not be in, just let us have any relevant delivery instructions when booking the order. For example, you may need the skip to be dropped at a particular side of the property. Alternatively, you may want to make sure the skip does not obstruct use of your garage.

No matter what the case may be, tell us when you place your order, and then we will make sure the instructions are passed on to the lorry driver.

What is a builders skip?

A builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the largest containers that can be used to discard weighty building materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or soil.

A builders skip is great for a variety of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning out the loft, these substantial skips are often the most cost-effective choice available.

What size skips have a drop door?

Getting a skip with a drop door makes filling rubbish into the skip much easier. This is particularly true with hefty materials such as dirt and concrete, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away large bulky objects like household furniture much easier as well.

The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, although this will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a door is required, and we will do our best to supply this.

Can I fill up the skip above the top?

It is important not to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being asked to remove excess waste before it can be collected. No matter what size you order, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, because moving an overloaded container is unsafe, as rubbish could fall and result in injuries or damage to others.

To prevent this problem, please ensure that you order a size suited to your waste removal needs. If the skip is full and you have more rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.

What are the different skip sizes available?

Skips are available in a selection of sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is perfect for small domestic jobs.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold around 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a good choice for shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more significant waste disposal task to sort out, a builder’s skip could be the best choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name implies, they are the most frequent sizes used by builders for construction waste, such as clay and rubble. But they can equally well be hired for household waste such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also deliver 10-16 yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For additional details about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
