Golborne Skip Hire FAQs

What types of waste am I allowed to put in a skip?

You can put a variety of waste in the skip. This can include wood, floor tiles, plastics or rubble from a house clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, dirt and stone from garden tasks are allowed as well. Cupboards and worktops from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also go in the skip.

However, there are things that you are not allowed to put in a skip because of the possible environmental or health risks they could trigger.

You cannot throw in your fridge, computer or your old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these items consist of hazardous elements in one type or another. They should be discarded separately from your normal waste.

If you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to schedule an independent service for this material. Please get in touch for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

Will a skip hire company from Golborne deliver my skip?

As we provide a UK-wide skip hire service, we use a diverse network of approved businesses. These can range from small local skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental standards.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

Skips are available in a wide range of different sizes to match various waste disposal needs. They are 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 will hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small household jobs.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent choice for garden shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to take on, the builder’s skip may be the best option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name implies, these are the most frequent sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, including clay and hardcore. However they can just as well be hired for household waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.

We also supply 10-16 cubic yard bins and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Do I need to be there when the skip is going to be delivered?

It usually is a good idea to be there when anybody delivers something to your property. You can then ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed exactly where you need it.

The same thing goes for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.

How do I order a skip?

This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you want to hire. Tell us if the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or public property (like the street). After that, pick the date you want your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment using our secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your skip to Golborne on the day you have chosen.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, this will provide you with plenty of time to fill up your skip. However, if you do need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Naturally, in the event you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just let us know when you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.

Is it ok to fill the skip higher than the top?

You must not fill a skip beyond the level load mark. When you load it over the tip of this level, it means that the skip is not safe to move, and you can be asked to take off any excess waste before it can be picked up.

What happens to the rubbish?

When you have finished filling your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer station in or local to Golborne where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Golborne?

This depends upon the size you want and whether you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the least expensive choice. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used primarily in industrial settings.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

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

Due to numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it to be delivered in a AM or PM slot.

How much waste will a builders skip hold?

The builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. They are the biggest skips that can be used to dispose of substantial building and construction waste materials such as rock, concrete, gravel or clay.

The builder’s skip is ideal for a number of tasks. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing out the garage, these big containers will often be the most affordable choice available.

Do you deliver skips across Greater Manchester?

In addition to delivering skips to Golborne, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Greater Manchester. By utilising a network of local and national waste management and recycling businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Golborne, Heywood or Droylsden, we have got you covered.

Will the skip have a drop down door?

Virtually all skips can be provided with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.

A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the container, especially with weighty materials, such as dirt and bricks, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load big and bulky items, like household furniture.

Can I throw away electrical items in my skip?

Electrical items including television sets, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore should not be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric products need to be separated from other materials. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

The roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a huge skip used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are predominantly for commercial use but can be used by residential customers also. Having said that, you will want plenty of room because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger in comparison to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.

As a result of the size, roro containers should only be hired for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suitable for disposing of soil and rubble.

How big is the mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest size offered by skip companies and is designed for small DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies provide a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Golborne?

This depends on where the skip will be located. You will only require a permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit if your skip is on private property, like a drive or within your company premises.

If you need to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on private property, it will save you some money.

Other areas covered include Heywood, Droylsden, Manchester, Royton, Middleton, Cheadle, Partington and Hale.
