Heysham Skip Hire FAQs
What types of rubbish can I put in a skip?
Before hiring your skip, you must make sure that the sort of waste materials you wish to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials have to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types it is possible to throw in a skip include home items like furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You can also use your skip to discard building and construction waste, including old bricks, soil, stone, metals and gravel.
Examples of forbidden items include things like electrical products, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently must be discarded separately from any general rubbish.
If I would like a skip on the road in Heysham, will I need to have a permit?
Preferably, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface. If you are carrying out a residential job, then your drive is going to be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public property, you will have to obtain a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be placed on a street, grass verge or other public property in Heysham. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be granted on your behalf. An extra charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your skip.

Ordering a skip shouldn’t be hard. This is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Heysham, you have various options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for small house clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also makes them ideal for household tidy ups including large objects such as household furniture and beds.
We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only suitable for light waste, so they can’t be hired to get rid of garden soil or stone.
For further information about the different sizes offered, such as dimensions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
Can I get a skip which has a drop down door?
For anyone who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is ideal for getting rid of heavy building and construction rubbish, as it can be walked into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop-down door, although these are more uncommon. This is because these sizes are typically low enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our very best to ensure a container with a drop door is supplied.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a large skip used to get rid of large amounts of rubbish. These skips are mainly for industrial use but can be hired by residential customers as well. Having said that, you need a good amount of space because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger compared to the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
As a result of the size, RORO skips can only be provided for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not suitable for disposing of concrete and bricks.
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size provided by skip companies and is designed for smaller DIY jobs, shed 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 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies offer a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into various waste materials, including wood, metals, paper, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Will you deliver skips across Lancashire?
Certainly. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to provide skips to both domestic and commercial customers throughout Lancashire and anywhere else within the UK.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often used for building and demolition work. There are generally two different skip sizes that may be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that can be used to get rid of large quantities of building and demolition waste, including earth, concrete and bricks.
Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for various other residential and business waste disposal tasks.
Can I get rid of electrical items in my skip?
Electric powered items like televisions, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste and so should not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered objects need to be separated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
You can normally hire your skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of offering a preferred collection time when making your order.
Alternatively, simply let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the following working day.
It may take a little longer to collect your skip during busy times, but we will always try to be there as quickly as possible.
Can I load the skip higher than the top?
It is important to never overfill your skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is indicated along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it will become very hazardous to transport. Which means that when you overfill your skip, you may be required to take away the surplus rubbish. No matter how secure you believe the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be unsafe and is therefore prohibited.
Will a Heysham skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip hire firm will likely deliver your skip in Heysham. We employ a network of both regional and nationwide businesses to enable us to provide our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are vetted to make certain they satisfy the high standards we require in terms of service, cost and environmental performance.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t have to be at home when your skip is delivered, but it can help. Being in when your skip is being delivered means that you can make sure the lorry can be given complete access and that your skip is positioned precisely where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is hired to a business property, we will appreciate your support during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, for those who can’t be available for delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask that you tell us when you book your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.
When will my skip be delivered?
When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the very next day. In some cases, we will even give you a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed when going through the online order process.
What is the cost of skip hire in Heysham?
Our goal is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Heysham. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip that you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you wish to have the skip positioned on the street or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the added price of the skip permit.
