Heywood Skip Hire FAQs

What will happen to the waste?

The contents of your skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer facility. Here the contents will be segregated by machinery and by hand into various waste streams, such as soil, paper, hardcore and wood. Sorting the waste in this way helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste ending up in landfill.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a massive skip that can be used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These skips are primarily for commercial use but can be used by residential clients too. Having said that, you will require a good amount of space since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger compared to the typical skip you will see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, roro skips can only be used for light materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and bricks.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered by skip firms and is good for small DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip companies provide a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may 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 branded as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

Will you deliver to other areas in Greater Manchester?

We provide a nationwide skip hire and recycling service using a network of approved and fully licensed local companies. So whether you would like skip hire in Heywood, Failsworth, Bury, Manchester or any other location in Greater Manchester, we can help.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Heywood?

This depends upon the skip size you need and if you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the lowest priced choice. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings.

Is it okay to fill the skip higher than the top?

It is vital to not overfill your skip. You must not pass the level load mark indicated along the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it will become very unsafe to transport. This means that if you overload the skip, you might be required to remove the excess rubbish. Regardless of how secure you feel the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the waste. That is hazardous and is therefore not allowed.

How do I order a skip online?

We have designed our booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. Step one is to type in your delivery address to view all the different skip sizes we are able to supply in Heywood. Pick the best size to meet your needs and enter the details of when and where you need the skip delivered. You then make payment with our secure payment platform, and we’ll send you an email to confirm the order as soon as your order is complete!

Can I throw away electrical items in the skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products have to be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electronic products including washing machines, televisions, kettles, laptops and even hair straighteners.

How many different skip sizes are there?

We can offer a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip perfect for small DIY projects and household clearances. A popular option for larger jobs, renovations and building work is the 8 yard skip.

For Heywood firms with a large amount of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How long can I keep the skip for?

Generally, you can have your skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.

Who will deliver my skip?

To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work together with a variety of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we can offer customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.

When will my skip be delivered?

When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. In some instances, we can even provide a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed during the order process.

Is it possible to get a skip which has a drop door?

In general, nearly all skips can be provided with a hinged door, depending on the size, availability and area. If you want a drop down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip with a drop door is primarily beneficial when choosing a big builder’s skip, as it allows you to wheelbarrow waste directly into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, since they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?

A skip can be hired to get rid of lots of different types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and processing a wide variety of materials from construction jobs, garden landscaping and house clearances. Examples of permitted waste materials can include:

  • Home furniture
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Garden soil
  • Concrete
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Cabinets and units

The majority of waste materials are permitted, so whether you want to throw out furniture, plastics, timber or fabric, we can normally take your waste away.

The volume and waste types you throw in your skip can vary based on the size skip you have hired. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you want to dispose of top soil and bricks, as an example, the largest size you will be able to hire would be the 8 yard builders skip.

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

There are some materials you will not be able to get rid of in your skip. The main reason for this is that these items include hazardous components that may be harmful to the environment. They could also be harmful to human health, therefore they need to be disposed of separately under UK laws.

Some examples of the goods that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

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

Ideally, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface. For anybody who is doing a domestic project, then your drive is going to be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. However, if neither is available, the street or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public property, you will need to have a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be placed on a street, grass verge as well as other public property in Heywood. If this is required, we will request the permit to be issued on your behalf. An additional charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

What is the size of a builders skip?

As the name implies, a builders skip is the size of skip most commonly supplied for construction jobs. There are typically two sizes that can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which can be used to get rid of significant quantities of construction and demolition waste, including dirt, rubble and stone.

Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for many other domestic and industrial waste disposal tasks.

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

It is always a good idea to be in when anybody delivers something to your property. That enables you to ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed just where you want it.

The same goes for those who have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

Other areas covered include Failsworth, Bury, Manchester, Farnworth, Sale, Middleton, Cheadle Hulme and Ashton-under-Lyne.
