Failsworth Skip Hire FAQs

How soon can you deliver a skip in Failsworth?

We will ensure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the following day.

Although we cannot guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You will need to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will often incur a charge for the wasted trip.

Can I put electronic items in the skip?

Electric powered products like television sets, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore can not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic goods must be separated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

Can you deliver skips across Greater Manchester?

In addition to delivering our range of skips to Failsworth, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Greater Manchester. Through our network of local and national waste management and recycling companies, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to Failsworth, Gatley or Worsley, we have got it covered.

How long can I hire a skip for?

The regular hire term is 14 days from the delivery date. Having said that, when you book the skip, you can tell us a collection date that is best for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if your skip is loaded earlier than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it removed at the earliest opportunity.

We will usually make collections within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this may not be possible at busy periods. Once collected, your waste will be taken to a local waste recycling facility, where it will be processed and sorted.

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

No, you don’t need to be at home when we are delivering your skip. So long as we are able to gain access to where you want it located, we can take care of it all.

When you will not be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when booking the order. For instance, you may prefer the skip to be located on a particular side of your driveway. Or you might need to ensure the skip does not hinder use of your garage.

Whatever the case might be, provide the details when you place your order, and we will ensure the directions are passed to the lorry driver.

What size is a roll-on roll-off container?

If you operate a business in Failsworth and want to dispose of large quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a perfect option. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers available.

As the name implies, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, that are picked up using chains.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Failsworth?

If possible, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface area. For anybody who is doing a household job, then a drive will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you will have to get a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be located on a road, grass verge as well as other public property in Failsworth. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be granted on your behalf. An extra fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your skip.

Where will the waste be taken to once the skip is picked up?

After you have finished filling your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility in or local to Failsworth where we sort the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

How can I hire a skip online?

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Failsworth?

The price of hiring a skip in Failsworth will depend on the size of skip you want. The least expensive option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a larger skip, such as an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also be more if you want to have a skip positioned on the highway, since you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Will a skip hire company from Failsworth deliver my skip?

As we offer a UK-wide skip hire service, we use a diverse network of verified and approved companies. These range from small local skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they satisfy our high customer service and environmental standards.

Am I able to dispose of all types of rubbish in a skip?

This is one of the most popular questions people have about hiring a skip. What is important to consider is that you may load your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are so many kinds of rubbish that may result from garden projects, building work and household clearances.

Among the most common items that we pick up in our skips include garden soil, wood, bush cuttings, kitchen cabinets, baths, and various household products.

There are some things that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This consists of any electronic products (fridges and freezers, monitors and washing machines for example), car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them must abide by a completely different procedure to make sure they don’t result in harm to the environment.

What size skips can you offer?

Skips are available in a wide range of sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small domestic projects.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great choice for shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial waste disposal task to handle, the builder’s skip might be the most suitable choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label indicates, they are the most popular sizes ordered by builders for building waste, like soil and rubble. However they can just as well be hired for domestic waste such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also deliver 10-16 cubic yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. To get more information about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Am I allowed to load up my skip higher than the side?

No. You must only pack the skip up to the level load mark. Piling rubbish up over this line will make it unsafe to move, and you can be told to get rid of the excess waste before your skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and it can also make it overweight.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact skip offered by skip firms and is designed for smaller DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.

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

What is a builder’s skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yd skip. The label comes from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes used by general builders and tradespeople.

These big containers are perfect for an array of domestic and industrial jobs. They are the largest size skips which you can use for hefty builders waste such as soil, stone and gravel.

Can I get a skip which has a drop door?

Getting a skip that has a drop down door makes filling rubbish into it much easier. This is particularly true with heavy materials such as dirt or rubble, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up big bulky items such as household furniture much easier also.

Most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, however this can sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when making your online order if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.

Other areas covered include Gatley, Worsley, Horwich, Radcliffe, Ramsbottom, Cheadle, Little Lever and Chadderton.
