Ellesmere Port Skip Hire FAQs
How long can I hire the skip for?
You can normally hire a skip for up to 2 weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of giving a preferred collection time when making your order.
Otherwise, simply tell us when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It may take a bit longer to pick up your skip over busy times, but we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Ellesmere Port?
Ordering a skip in Ellesmere Port with us is very easy. Pick the skip size you need and input a handful of details about when and where you would like the skip to be delivered. You can then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and then arrange to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
Can I get rid of electrical items in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, because electronic items like old TVs, fridges, computers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.
Is it okay to stack up waste in my skip?
No. You are only allowed to fill the skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste up above this line will make it unsafe to move, and you may be asked to get rid of the excess waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and can also make it overweight.
What is a builders skip?
The builders skip is the most popular skip which is hired throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builders skip is ideal for most building and construction work, which is where the name stems from.
The 8 yd builder’s skip is the largest size that can be used for hefty waste such as dirt, concrete, rock and gravel.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are fantastic for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furniture and old baby toys to paving blocks and bricks. Having a total capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you having to make multiple journeys to the local recycling centre.
What can I put in my skip?
You may use your skip to throw out many different waste types. We are used to collecting and processing numerous items produced from building work, garden projects and household clean-ups. Examples of permitted waste types include:
- Home furnishings
- Garden cuttings
- Top soil
- Bricks and rubble
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Kitchen cabinets and units
The majority of waste types are usually permitted, therefore whether you need to throw out furniture, plastics, timber or fabric, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The volume and things you throw in the skip will vary based on the size skip you hired. Skips do have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you need to dispose of top soil and concrete, for example, the largest size container you will be permitted to hire will be the 8 cubic yard skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?
There are some waste items you will not be allowed to dump in your skip. The reason behind this is that these products include hazardous elements which can be harmful to the environment. They could also be damaging to human health, therefore they need to be disposed of separately within UK laws.
Some of the items which are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas cylinders
- Computer monitors
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

If I require a skip on the road in Ellesmere Port, will I need to get a permit?
This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if your skip is on private property, such as a drive or on your company premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place your skip on private property, it will save you some money.

If you complete your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive, we strive to offer you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

Should I be in when the skip is delivered?

Even so, when you can’t be available at the time of delivery, don’t worry. We just ask that you tell us when you place your order, and we will arrange things from there.
