Glossop Skip Hire FAQs

How soon can you deliver a skip in Glossop?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We can typically provide a next day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (such as a highway), you will have to get a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to many factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it turning up within a morning or afternoon slot.

Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?

Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will probably be asked to remove any rubbish above the level load line. This means that you cannot make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other item, since this will increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal obligation to make sure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.

Please be sure to order the correct size of skip to meet your requirements and get in touch if you’re unsure which size you require. We will be pleased to help.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Glossop?

Our goal is to give you the lowest priced skip hire service in Glossop. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have a skip situated on the highway or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the extra expense of the skip permit.

What happens to the waste in the skip?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets sorted into a range of waste streams, such as wood, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household waste, a mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to take on many jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be placed on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.

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

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

Skips come in a variety of sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small residential projects.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is an excellent option for garden clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to undertake, a builder’s skip could be the most suitable choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, these are the most common sizes ordered by builders for building waste, like soil and stone. However they can just as well be used for household rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also offer 10-16 cubic yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a large skip used to get rid of large amounts of waste. These skips are primarily for business use but can be used by domestic clients too. However, you need a good amount of room because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger than the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, RORO skips should only be hired for light materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and bricks.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Glossop?

Normally, it is possible to have your skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But in order to do this, you need to have permission from your local authority in Glossop, which is called a skip permit. We can arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council do charge a fee for this permit, and it may sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

The standard hire term will be a fortnight from the delivery date. However, at the time you order the skip, you can provide a collection date that will work for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if the skip is full earlier than anticipated, let us know, and we will pick it up as quickly as possible.

We can usually complete collections within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to understand that this is not always the case at busier periods. Once collected, your waste will be taken to your local waste recycling facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

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

It is usually best if you can be available when anyone delivers anything to your property. That allows you to ensure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be dropped exactly where you want it.

The same goes for those who have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.

Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.

What is the size of a builders skip?

As the name suggests, a builders skip is the size of skip most often supplied for building jobs. There are usually two different skip sizes that can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to get rid of significant quantities of building and demolition materials, such as soil, concrete and bricks.

Although labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for various other residential and commercial waste disposal tasks.

What size skips will have a drop down door?

Typically, most skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you require a drop-down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip that has a drop door is primarily beneficial if choosing a big builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow waste materials directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, because they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?

No, you can not put old electrical waste items in a skip. This can include things like laptops, cookers, washing machines, freezers and television sets. Electric objects can’t be discarded in a skip as they can contain dangerous materials and components.

Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.

What types of waste can I put in my skip?

You are able to fill the skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly generated from garage clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include timber, dirt, stone, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you throw in your skip will depend on the skip size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, in the event that you will be using your skip for heavy construction wastes such as stone or dirt, the largest size you would be able to hire is an 8 cubic yard.

Some materials cannot be disposed of in the skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.
