Hazel Grove Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yard skip. The label originates from the fact that these are the most popular sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are suitable for numerous household and business tasks. These are the biggest skip sizes which you can use for heavy builders waste such as top soil, rubble and bricks.
Do I have to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t need to be home when your skip is being delivered, but it does help. Being there whenever the skip is due to be delivered means you can make sure the lorry can be given full access and that the skip will be dropped exactly where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is being hired to company premises, we will appreciate your help during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, when you can’t be available during the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you place the order, and then we will organise things from there.
What sort of waste am I able to get rid of in a skip?
Prior to ordering a skip, it is essential to ensure that the type of waste materials you want to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Waste types it is possible to put in a skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use a skip to discard building and demolition waste, like timber, soil, rubble, metals and gravel.
Examples of restricted items include things like electronic items, tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently need to be discarded separately from your general rubbish.
What happens to the waste in the skip?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste gets separated into several different waste types, which includes stone, metals and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?
The roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a huge container that can be used to get rid of large volumes of waste. These containers are predominantly for industrial use but can be hired by domestic clients too. However, you should have plenty of space as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger when compared to the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
As a result of the size, roro containers can only be used for light materials such as plastics, timber and paper, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of soil and rubble.
What size skips do you supply?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Hazel Grove, you have several options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is great for modest home clearances and DIY work.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also makes them perfect for household tidy ups involving large items like household furniture and beds.
We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for anyone with even bigger waste disposal needs. These skips are only suited to lightweight materials, so they can’t be hired to dispose of garden soil or rubble.
For more information regarding the different sizes available, including dimensions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will make sure your skip will be delivered on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the following day.
Although we are not able to guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
It is important to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will most likely incur a charge for the wasted journey.
How large is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact skip offered by skip companies and is designed for smaller DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some firms provide a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Hazel Grove. We employ a network of both regional and national businesses to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully assessed to make sure they match the high standards we require regarding service, cost and environmental performance.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Hazel Grove?
This depends on the size you want and if you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the least expensive choice. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, because electronic items like old TVs, cookers, computers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly fashion.
Is it okay to load my skip higher than level load mark?
No. You must only fill up the skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste up over this line makes it dangerous to move, and you may be asked to take off the extra waste before the skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or any other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and can also make it overweight.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, that will give you plenty of time to fill the skip. However, if you do need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, should you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just let us know once you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Hazel Grove?
In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need the skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or house, you must get permission from your local council in Hazel Grove, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we would gladly arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for your skip permit, and you should know before placing your order that getting the licence can sometimes take up to two working days.
How do you hire a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you want to hire. Tell us if the skip will be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on public property (such as the road). Next, choose the day you need your skip to be delivered. Check your order and then make payment using our secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Hazel Grove on the day you have selected.
Is it possible to get a skip that has a drop door?
In general, almost all skips can be provided with a drop down door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip that has a drop door is mainly useful if you are choosing a large builder’s skip, since it allows you to wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, since they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Do you deliver skips across Greater Manchester?
Absolutely. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we can provide skips to residential and commercial customers throughout Greater Manchester and elsewhere in the UK.
