Haslingden Skip Hire FAQs

Am I allowed to put electronic products in the skip?

Electronic objects such as televisions, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and washing machines 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 electrical goods need to be separated from other rubbish. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Haslingden?

This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is put on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit when your skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or inside your company premises.

If you do need to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place the skip on your own property, you will save a few pounds.

How long will it take to get a skip in Haslingden?

When your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We can typically offer a following day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, as to be on public property (such as a street), you will need to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.

As a result of several factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it arriving within a AM or PM slot.

How much will skip hire in Haslingden cost?

The price of getting a skip in Haslingden will depend on the size of skip you require. The least expensive skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you need to have your skip positioned on the road, as you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Is it okay to load my skip higher than the side?

No, you are only allowed to fill up the skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste up above this line will make it dangerous to transport, and you may be asked to take off the excess waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.

What can I put in the skip?

You can use a skip to throw out many different waste types. We are experienced in picking up and processing lots of materials from building jobs, garden landscaping and property clean-ups. A few examples of permitted waste types can include:

  • Home furniture
  • Tree trimmings
  • Garden soil
  • Concrete
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

The majority of waste types are generally permitted, and so whether you would like to dispose of metals, plastics, wood or textiles, we can normally take your waste away.

The volume and things you discard in the skip may vary based on which size skip you chosen. All skips have a weight limit for safety. So to be able to dispose of garden soil and gravel, as an example, the largest size container you will be allowed to use is the 8 yard skip.

Are there any items that I can’t put in the skip?

There are a few items you will not be able to dump in your skip. The reason for this is that some products incorporate hazardous materials which may cause damage to the environment. They can even be harmful to human health, therefore they have to be disposed of separately under UK law.

A few of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer screens
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?

You don’t have to be at your property when the skip is being delivered, however it can help. Being there when the skip arrives means that you can ensure the driver is given full access and that your skip will be placed exactly where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is hired to a business premises, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.

Even so, in the event you can’t be available for delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you book your order, and we will arrange everything from there.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

Skips are available in a variety of sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small residential tasks.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a good choice for shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant waste disposal task to deal with, the builder’s skip might be the most suitable option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label implies, these are the most popular sizes used by builders for construction waste, such as clay and hardcore. But they can equally well be hired for domestic waste such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also offer 10-16 yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional details about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

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

If you have a business in Haslingden and need to dispose of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container may be a fantastic option. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers on the market.

As the name implies, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, in contrast to standard skips, that are picked up using chains.

Do you deliver skips across Lancashire?

Absolutely. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to provide skips to both domestic and business customers throughout Lancashire and anywhere else in the UK.

How much waste can a builders skip hold?

The phrase builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The term stems from the fact that they are the most popular sizes that are hired by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial containers are fantastic for a wide variety of household and business tasks. These are the largest sizes which can be used for weighty builders waste such as top soil, stone and concrete.

Will my skip have a drop door?

In general, nearly all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you need a drop door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is primarily helpful when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials directly into the skip. This is not so important for mini and midi skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How much waste will the mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are ideal for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furniture and old toys to paving blocks and soil. Having a capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you having to make numerous trips to the local recycling centre.

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

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 waste will be sorted into the various waste materials, such as wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This ensures that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How long can I hire a skip for?

Typically, you can keep a skip for a maximum of two week. This means you don’t need to hurry through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.

Other areas covered include Whitworth, Accrington, Rawtenstall, Kirkham, Church, Rishton, Bamber Bridge and Bacup.
