Haydock Skip Hire FAQs
Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Haydock?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a permit when it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit when your skip is on your private property, like a driveway or within your company premises.
If you need to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position your skip on private land, you will save some pounds.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Haydock?
We have built our booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. Step one is to type in your delivery postcode to view the range of skip sizes we are able to supply in Haydock.

Will a skip hire company from Haydock deliver my skip?
Since we provide a nationwide skip service, we use an extensive network of approved businesses. These include small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental requirements.
When will my skip be delivered?
If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the very next day. Sometimes, we can even provide a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days are confirmed during the order process.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can usually hire a skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the collection will be as convenient as possible, you have the option of providing a preferred collection time when placing your order.
Otherwise, simply tell us when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It may take a little longer to collect your skip over busy times, but we will always endeavour to come as quickly as possible.
Will the skip come with a drop door?
The vast majority of containers can be supplied with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the container, particularly with heavy materials, like soil and gravel, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky items, like pieces of furniture.
Can I pile up waste in my skip?
It is very important to not overload your skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take out surplus waste before it can be picked up. Regardless of what size you order, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, as moving an overloaded bin can be hazardous, as materials could drop and lead to personal injury or damage to others.
To avoid this issue, please be sure you hire a skip size suited to your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full but you have further waste to dispose of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
What are the different skip sizes available?
Skips are offered in a variety of different sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is great for small domestic tasks.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a great option for shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
If you have a more substantial waste disposal job to handle, the builder’s skip could be the best choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name implies, these are the most common sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, like clay and hardcore. But they can just as well be used for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.
We also offer 10-16 cubic yard bins and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For further info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
Do I need to be in when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when your skip is delivered, however it does help. Being there whenever the skip arrives means you can ensure the delivery driver is given complete access and that your skip is positioned precisely where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is hired to a business premises, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, in the event you can’t be available at the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to tell us when you place your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is probably the most common skip which is hired throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builders skip is ideal for most building and construction tasks, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 yd builders skip is the biggest size which you can use for heavy materials including garden soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?
A roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a massive container that can be used to dispose of large quantities of rubbish. These skips are mainly for commercial use but can be used by residential clients also. However, you will need plenty of room since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger when compared to the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, RORO skips can only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and bricks.
Am I able to throw all types of rubbish in a skip?
You can fill your skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly generated from loft clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include timber, dirt, bricks, garden trimmings, furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you throw in your skip would depend on which size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight limit. For example, in the event that you will be using the skip for heavy construction wastes like bricks or top soil, the biggest size you can use is the 8 yard skip.
Some materials can not be discarded in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, because electronic items including old TVs, fridge freezers, computers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects need to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly way.
Will you deliver to other areas in Merseyside?
Sure, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply skips to areas across Merseyside, including Haydock, Birkenhead, Bootle and Rainford. So no matter where you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Where does my waste go when the skip is picked up?
After you have finished with your skip, we will come and get it. It will be transported to a waste recycling station in or local to Haydock where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Haydock?
To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Haydock, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you which skip sizes we provide in your location and how much each size will cost you to order. If the skip is going on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
The mini skip will be the most compact skip provided by skip firms and is perfect for smaller DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some firms will provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost 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 won’t make any difference.
