Farnworth Skip Hire FAQs

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

Skips come in a selection of different sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small household jobs.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent option for garage clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial waste disposal job to tackle, a builder’s skip could be the most suitable choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label indicates, they are the most popular sizes ordered by builders for building waste, including soil and hardcore. But they can just as well be hired for household rubbish such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

We also provide 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For more details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

In most cases, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need the skip to be situated on land outside of your business or residence, you will have to receive permission from the local council in Farnworth, which is called a skip permit.

The council will charge a fee for your skip license, and you should know before placing your order that obtaining the permit can often take up to 2 working days.

Is it okay to load up my skip above level load mark?

It is important to not overfill the skip. You can not pass the level load mark that is shown on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it is very unsafe to move. This means that when you overfill your skip, you could be required to take off the excess waste. No matter how safe you think the skip to be, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This is hazardous and is not allowed.

Should I be in when the skip is delivered?

You don’t have to be at home when your skip will be delivered, however it can help. Being there when your skip is due to be delivered means that you can ensure the lorry driver can be given complete access and that your skip will be positioned exactly where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is being delivered to a business premises, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.

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

What happens to the rubbish?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into various waste streams, such as timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What skip sizes have got a drop door?

In general, most skips can be supplied with a drop door, depending on the size, availability and location. If you require a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip with a drop door is primarily beneficial when hiring a large builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials into the skip. This is not so important for mini skips, since they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to transport significant quantities of waste. In the majority of cases, these type of skips are used for commercial uses. However, residential clients can also use them. You should take into account the space they occupy, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be utilised for light waste like plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and hardcore.

What things can I put in my skip?

This is one of the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. The most important thing to remember is that you may load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of waste that may result from garden projects, construction work and property clearances.

Some of the most frequent things which we collect in skips include dirt, wood, bush cuttings, kitchen cabinets, bathroom suites, and various household objects.

There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This can include any electronic goods (refrigerators, monitors and cookers for example), old tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all deemed hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them has to adhere to an entirely different process to ensure they do not result in damage to the environment.

What is the process of hiring a skip in Farnworth?

This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you want to hire. Let us know if the skip will be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (such as the street). Then, choose the date you would like the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment with our secure online payment platform. All done! We will deliver your skip to Farnworth on the day you have chosen.

How much waste can a builders skip hold?

The builders skip is regarded as the popular skip which is ordered across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builders skip is perfect for most building and construction tasks, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 yd builders skip will be the largest option which you can use for hefty waste such as dirt, concrete, bricks and gravel.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

You can usually keep the skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection is as convenient as possible, you have the option of providing a preferred collection time when placing your order.

Otherwise, simply tell us when you have finished with the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.

It might take a little while longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, but we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.

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

We can in most cases deliver skips to Farnworth the following working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our online booking system offers you various delivery dates to select from. So whether you want a skip to arrive asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.

Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?

Electrical items such as tv sets, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste and therefore should not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered items should be separated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest skip provided by skip companies and is designed for smaller DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.

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

Other areas covered include Stockport, Heywood, Westhoughton, Shaw, Droylsden, Chadderton, Ramsbottom and Bramhall.
