Below are a few of the frequently asked questions we have received with regards to our skip hire and recycling service.
Hindley Skip Hire FAQs
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is probably the most frequent skip that is hired across the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builder’s skip is fantastic for most building work, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip is the biggest option that can be used for hefty materials like soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.
Will a Hindley skip hire company deliver my skip?
To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a number of local and national companies. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we can provide customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.
What types of waste materials can I put in the skip?
This is among the most frequent questions people have about skip hire. The main thing to remember is that you can load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of waste that can come from garden work, building work and household clearances.
Some of the most frequent things that we find in our skips include dirt, timber, tree cuttings, cupboards, baths, and various household products.
There are some items that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This includes any electrical items (fridge freezers, monitors or computers for example), car tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all considered hazardous waste, and getting rid of them needs to adhere to an entirely different process to ensure they don’t result in harm to the environment.
What happens to the waste once the skip is picked up?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the different waste materials, such as timber, metals, paper, etc. This ensures that as much of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How big is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip delivered by skip firms and is ideal for small DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip firms will offer a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a little 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 a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
If I require a skip on a road in Hindley, will I need to have a permit?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like the skip to be situated on land outside of your business or house, you have got to obtain permission from the local council in Hindley, which is referred to as a skip permit. If required, we will gladly organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less point to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the license, and you should know before placing your order that getting the licence will often take up to 2 working days.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you manage a company in Hindley and want to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a perfect choice. Available in 20 – 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the name suggests, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, in contrast to conventional skips, which are lifted by using chains.
Do you deliver to other areas in Greater Manchester?
We offer a national skip hire and waste management service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you would like skip hire in Hindley, Hyde, Urmston, Shaw or any other area in Greater Manchester, we can help.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
The regular hire period is two weeks from your delivery date. Having said that, when you order the skip, you can let us know a collection date that is best for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if your skip is fully loaded earlier than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it picked up as quickly as possible.
We will usually make collections within 48 hours. However, it is important to remember that this may not be possible during busy periods. Once collected, your skip will be taken to your local waste recycling station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items must be kept separate from general waste to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered items like tumble dryers, monitors, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.
How can I hire a skip in Hindley?
Ordering a skip in Hindley through us is very simple. Decide on the skip size you want and input a handful of details about where and when you would like your skip to be delivered. You can then pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and arrange to get your skip delivered.
Is it possible to have a skip with a drop down door?
For anyone who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is great for disposing of hefty building and demolition rubbish, as it can be pushed in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop down door, however these are generally more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our very best to ensure a container with a drop door is provided.
Is it okay to fill the skip higher than the top?
It is very important not to overload your skip, as you risk being asked to take off excessive waste before it can be picked up. No matter what size you order, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as transporting an overloaded bin will be dangerous, as rubbish could fall and result in injuries or damage to other people.
To prevent this problem, please be sure to hire a size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full and you have extra rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.

Do I have to be there when the skip is delivered?
