Kirkby Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
If you are looking for a low cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to deal with numerous tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be located on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit.
Although most frequently chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also tackle small commercial jobs.
What skip sizes do you deliver?
We can offer a full range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip perfect for modest DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A common option for more substantial projects, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard skip.
For Kirkby firms with a big volume of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What sort of rubbish am I allowed to throw in a skip?
Before ordering a skip, it is important to check that the type of rubbish you want to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you could discard in your skip include home goods like furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use your skip to discard building and construction waste, such as timber, dirt, rubble, metals and gravel.
Some examples of forbidden items include things like electrical items, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently need to be discarded separately from general waste.
How much will skip hire in Kirkby cost?
The price of hiring a skip in Kirkby is determined by the size of skip you need. The cheapest option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you require a larger sized skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also be more if you need to have your skip on the road, as you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off skip, often known as a RORO, is a large container that is used to get rid of large amounts of rubbish. These bins are primarily for industrial use but can be used by residential customers also. However, you will want a lot of room as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger when compared to the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off skips should only be hired for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of soil and rubble.
How do I order a skip in Kirkby?
We have built our online booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. Step one is to type in your address to see all the different skip sizes we can provide in Kirkby. Select the best size to meet your needs and provide us with the details of where and when you want your skip delivered. After that you can make payment with our secure payment system, and we’ll send you an email to verify your order once your order is complete!
What happens to the waste?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into the different waste materials, including wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Kirkby?
Ideally, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface. For anyone who is carrying out a household project, then a driveway is going to be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. However, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public property, you have got to obtain a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be located on a street, grass verge as well as other public property in Kirkby. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be issued on your behalf. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The term originates from the fact that they are the most common sizes used by builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are ideal for an array of household and commercial tasks. These are the largest size skips that can be used for heavy builders waste like top soil, stone and gravel.
Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when your skip is delivered, however it will help. Being there whenever the skip is delivered means that you can make sure the lorry can be given full access and that the skip can be dropped precisely where you need it. Likewise, if your skip is being hired to your business premises, we will appreciate your help during delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, in the event you can’t be available at the time of delivery, don’t worry. We just ask that you tell us when you place your order, and then we will organise things from there.
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
Electronic products including television sets, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore should not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electrical goods must be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly manner.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can normally keep a skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, there is the option of giving a preferred collection date when you make your order.
Otherwise, just tell us when you have finished with your skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in the majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It could take a bit longer to collect your skip during busy times, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
Getting a skip that has a drop door makes filling rubbish into the skip much easier. This is especially true with heavy materials like soil and concrete, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of large bulky objects like furniture easier too.
The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, however this will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you place your booking if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.
Will you deliver to other areas in Merseyside?
Absolutely. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we can supply skips to both residential and business customers throughout Merseyside and anywhere else in the UK.
How soon can you deliver a skip in Kirkby?
We can typically deliver skips to Kirkby the next working day when an order is made before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking platform will give you a range of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like the skip delivered asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Kirkby?
As we provide a national skip service, we utilise a diverse network of verified and approved businesses. These include small local skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management service providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental requirements.
Can I pile up the waste in my skip?
It is very important to not overfill your skip, as you risk being asked to take off excessive waste before it can be picked up. Regardless of what size you order, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, since transporting an overloaded container can be hazardous, as materials could drop and lead to personal injury or damage to other people.
To prevent this problem, please ensure you hire a size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full and you have further rubbish to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
