Hyde Skip Hire FAQs

What are the different skip sizes available?

Skips are offered in a wide range of different sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small domestic projects.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a fantastic option for garage clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more substantial waste disposal task to take on, the builder’s skip might be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label indicates, they are the most typical sizes hired by builders for construction waste, including clay and stone. However they can equally well be hired for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.

We also offer 10-16 cubic yard bins and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For further details about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Ordering a skip in Hyde with us is incredibly simple. Select the skip size you will need and then input a few details about when and where you would like the skip delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and schedule to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?

A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a huge skip used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These containers are mainly for commercial use but can be hired by residential customers too. However, you will want lots of space as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger than the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.

Due to the size, RORO skips should only be hired for light-weight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and rubble.

Do I need to be there when the skip is due to be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be there on the day the skip is delivered. You can then make sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip can be placed exactly where you need it. The same is applicable if you have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly when gates limit access.

On the other hand, if this isn’t feasible, you don’t need to stress. Just let us know when placing your order, and we will take care of everything.

Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items need to be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electrical items including tumble dryers, monitors, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.

What is the cost of skip hire in Hyde?

Our goal is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in Hyde. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip that you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you want to have your skip situated on the road or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the added expense of a skip permit.

Can you deliver to other areas in Greater Manchester?

Yes, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skip sizes to locations throughout Greater Manchester, such as Hyde, Horwich, Heywood and Tyldesley. So no matter where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

What types of waste materials can I put in my skip?

Before getting your skip, it is important to check that the type of waste you wish to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials have to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

Waste types you can discard in your skip include household items like pieces of furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use your skip to dispose of building and demolition rubbish, including old bricks, soil, rubble, metals and gravel.

Examples of forbidden items include electrical goods, tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently must be disposed of separately from general waste.

What happens to the rubbish?

Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into the various waste materials, such as wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How much waste will a builders skip hold?

The phrase builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The term stems from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.

These large skips are suited to numerous types of residential and business tasks. They are the biggest sizes that you can use for hefty builders waste such as soil, rubble and gravel.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Hyde?

In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you want the skip to be located on land outside of your company or residence, you must get authorisation from your local council in Hyde, which is called a permit. If required, we would be happy to arrange this for you, so it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for your skip license, and you should be aware before placing your order that obtaining the permit will often take up to two working days.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest size available from skip companies and is good for small DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some companies offer you a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, this provides you with plenty of time to fill up the skip. However, if you need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, if you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your pick up. Just let us know when you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.

Will the skip come with a drop door?

Having a skip that has a drop door helps make filling waste into it a lot easier. This is especially true with hefty waste materials such as garden soil and stone, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of large bulky objects such as furniture a lot easier too.

Most skip containers can be provided with a drop door, however this may sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to supply this.

Can I fill the skip above level load line?

Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it dangerous to transport, and you will then have to empty any rubbish above the level load mark. This means you are unable to make use of sheets of wood, doors or another object, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty to ensure that containers aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.

Please be sure you select the appropriate sized skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you’re uncertain which size you require. We will be pleased to help.

How long does it take to get a skip in Hyde?

We will ensure your skip is provided on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the following day.

Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to reach you within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

You will need to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will normally incur a charge for the wasted journey.

Other areas covered include Horwich, Heywood, Tyldesley, Dukinfield, Bramhall, Hindley, Swinton and Milnrow.
