Heswall Skip Hire FAQs
Where will my rubbish be taken to when the skip is picked up?
The items in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling facility. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machines and by hand into different waste materials, like soil, plastics, concrete and timber. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.
What kinds of rubbish can I dispose of in a skip?
This is one of the most common questions people have about hiring a skip. The main thing to remember is that you may fill up your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of rubbish that may come from garden projects, building work and property clearances.
Some of the most common things which we find in our skips include dirt, wood, bush cuttings, kitchen units, sinks, as well as other household items.
However, there are some items that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. For example, any electronic objects (fridge freezers, televisions and computers for example), car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and therefore getting rid of them must follow an entirely different procedure to ensure they don’t cause harm to the environment.
How many different skip sizes are there?
We can provide a wide range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip suitable for small DIY jobs and house clearances. A popular choice for bigger jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Heswall firms which generate a large amount of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do all skips come with a drop door?
Getting a skip with a drop door will make loading waste into it a lot easier. This is especially the case with heavy waste like soil and rubble, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away big bulky objects such as household furniture much easier as well.
Most skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, but this may sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a door is needed, and we will do our best to deliver this.
If I need a skip on a road in Heswall, will I need to get a permit?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want your skip to be placed on land outside of your company or house, you must obtain permission from the local authority in Heswall, which is known as a skip permit. If necessary, we will be glad to arrange this for you, therefore it’s one less issue to think about. The council will charge a fee for the skip permit, and you should know before booking that getting the licence can often take up to 2 working days.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is the most popular skip which is used throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is perfect for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the name originates from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip is the biggest size that you can use for heavy waste matter such as soil, concrete, rock and gravel.
Am I able to get rid of electrical items in my skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, because electronic products like old televisions, fridges, computers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects must be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.
How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you run a company in Heswall and need to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a perfect option. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips that are available.
As the label implies, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, as opposed to normal skips, which are lifted using chains.
Can you deliver to other areas in Merseyside?
We provide a national skip hire service through a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Heswall, Prescot, Formby, Bebington or another site in Merseyside, we can help.
Should I be in when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not need to be at home when we are delivering the skip. So long as we can gain access to where you need it positioned, we are able to manage everything.
In the event you are not likely to be at home, simply let us know any relevant delivery instructions when placing the order. For instance, you may want the skip to be dropped on a particular area of your property. Alternatively, you might want to be sure that the skip does not block use of your garage.
Whatever the case may be, provide the details when you place your order, and then we will ensure your instructions are passed to the delivery driver.
How do you hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you want to hire. Tell us if the skip is going to be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or local authority property (like the road). After that, pick the date you want your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and make payment with our secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Heswall on the date you have selected.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. In most cases, this gives you sufficient time to load your skip. However, if you do need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, in the event you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size delivered by skip companies and is great for smaller DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some companies will offer a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

What is the cost of skip hire in Heswall?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Heswall, enter your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display the sizes we provide in your area and how much each one will cost to order. If the skip is going on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.
Am I allowed to fill my skip higher than the level load line?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it hazardous to move, and you may have to remove any items higher than the level load mark. This means that you can not make use of sheets of wood, doors or some other item, since this will increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal obligation to make sure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure to select the appropriate sized skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you are uncertain which size is best. We will be glad to help.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip is delivered on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the following day.
Although we cannot promise a precise delivery time, we will do our best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You will need to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will normally incur a charge for the wasted journey.
