Below are a few of the frequently asked questions we get with regards to our skip hire and recycling services.

Irlam Skip Hire FAQs

Can I dispose of all kinds of rubbish in a skip?

You can fill your skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly produced from house clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include timber, top soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, household furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you throw in the skip would depend on which skip size you have hired, as there is a weight limit. For example, when you are using a skip for heavy building waste such as stone or garden soil, the largest size you can use is an 8 cubic yard.

Some materials can not be discarded in your skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.

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

In most cases, it will be possible to have your skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to get this done, you have got to get permission from your local authority in Irlam, which is called a skip permit. We can organise this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The council will charge a fee for your license, and it may sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

Am I allowed to throw electronic items in my skip?

Unfortunately not, since electrical products including old televisions, fridges, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly manner.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

The standard hire time frame is 2 weeks from the delivery date. Having said that, when you book the skip, you can choose a collection date that is ideal for you. Of course, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is full earlier than anticipated, let us know, and we will pick it up as quickly as possible.

We can usually be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to bear in mind this is not always the case during busier periods. Once collected, your waste will be transported to a local waste recycling station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

How do you hire a skip online?

Ordering a skip in Irlam through us is incredibly straightforward. Decide on the skip size you need and enter a handful of details about where and when you would like your skip delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered on the date selected.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a large container that is used to get rid of large amounts of waste. These containers are predominantly for business use but can be used by domestic customers too. Having said that, you need a lot of room because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger compared to the average skip you will likely see on the roadside.

Due to the size, roro skips should only be used for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suited to disposing of concrete and rubble.

Where does the waste be taken to once the skip is picked up?

Once you have finished with your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility in or local to Irlam where we will sort the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

What is classed as being a builders skip?

The builder’s skip is regarded as the popular skip used in the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is perfect for most building tasks, which is where the label comes from.

The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip will be the largest size which you can use for hefty waste materials including soil, concrete, rock and gravel.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Irlam?

This is determined by the skip size you will need and if you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the lowest priced choice. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings.

Do you deliver to other areas in Greater Manchester?

We provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service by using a network of approved and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you would like skip hire in Irlam, Sale, Hale, Bury or another location in Greater Manchester, we can help.

Will a Irlam skip hire company deliver my skip?

A local skip firm will most likely deliver your skip in Irlam. We work with a network of both regional and national companies to allow us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These firms are thoroughly assessed to make certain they fulfill the high standards we require when it comes to customer service, cost and environmental performance.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you complete your order prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we try to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery spot, as failed deliveries can lead to a charge for the wasted trip.

Am I allowed to fill the skip higher than the level load mark?

You must not load your skip beyond the level load mark. When you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means that your skip will not be safe to transport, and you can be asked to take off any extra rubbish prior to it being collected.

Will my skip come with a drop down door?

Nearly all skip sizes can be supplied with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the skip, particularly with heavy materials, like soil and bricks, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, like furniture.

What size skips can you provide?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Irlam, you will have various options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard container, also known as a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for small domestic clearances and DIY tasks.

The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that 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. These are the most popular sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also makes them perfect for household clearances including bulky objects like pieces of furniture and beds.

We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for customers with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only suitable for lightweight waste materials, so they cannot be hired to dispose of soil or rubble.

For additional details about the different sizes available, such as dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Do I need to be home whenever the skip is delivered?

No, you don’t need to be home when we deliver the skip. Providing we are able to access where you want it delivered, we will manage it all.

If you are not likely to be in, simply let us know any relevant delivery directions when placing the order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be dropped at a particular part of your property. Or you might want to ensure the skip does not hinder use of your garage.

Whatever the situation might be, simply tell us when you place your order, and we will ensure the instructions will be passed to the delivery driver.

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are ideal for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.

They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and old toys to paving slabs and bricks. With a capacity of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip will save you needing to make multiple visits to your local recycling centre.

Other areas covered include Sale, Hale, Bury, Littleborough, Hazel Grove, Mossley, Swinton and Stretford.
