Kirkham Skip Hire FAQs
Is it okay to pile up the waste in my skip?
I’m afraid not. You must only load the skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste up over this line will make it dangerous to transport, and you can be told to remove the extra waste before your skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.
Can you deliver skips across Lancashire?
Yes. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to offer skips to domestic and industrial customers throughout Lancashire and anywhere else within the UK.
Who will deliver my skip?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a wide range of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?
If you run a company in Kirkham and want to get rid of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a perfect option. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers that can be hired.
As the name suggests, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, that are picked up using chains.
Am I able to have a skip with a drop door?
When you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop door. This is made for getting rid of hefty building and construction waste materials, as it can be walked in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop down door, though these are more uncommon. This is because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, please let us know when placing your order. We will do our very best to make sure a container with a drop door is supplied.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
We offer a full-range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip great for modest DIY projects and domestic clearances. A popular option for larger sized tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Kirkham firms which produce a large amount of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How much will skip hire in Kirkham cost?
This will depend on the size you will need and if you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the least expensive choice. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used primarily in industrial settings.

Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, because electrical items such as old televisions, fridges, printers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly way.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Kirkham?
Usually, it is possible to get a skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to do this, you have got to get approval from your local council in Kirkham, which is known as a skip permit. We will organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for this license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, this will provide you with plenty of time to load your skip. However, if you need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, if you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just tell us once you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.
What is classed as a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is the most popular skip which is ordered in the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builder’s skip is fantastic for most building and demolition work, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip will be the largest size which can be used for heavy waste materials including dirt, concrete, stone and gravel.
How fast can you deliver a skip to Kirkham?
If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the very next day. In some cases, we will even give you a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed when going through the order process.
What will happen to my rubbish when the skip is collected?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into various waste materials, such as wood, metals, paper, etc. This ensures that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What types of rubbish can I put in a skip?
Before you hire your skip, you must check that the type of waste materials you intend to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials must be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types you are able to throw in a skip include home items like furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use a skip to throw out building and construction waste, such as wood, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Some examples of restricted items include electronic products, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be there at the time it is delivered. Then you can ensure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip will be placed precisely where you want it. This also applies if you have a skip delivered to business property, especially when gates limit access.
On the other hand, if that isn’t possible, you don’t have to worry. Just tell us when making your booking, and we will take care of everything.
How large is the mini skip?
If you have a small amount of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip may be the ideal solution. What size is described as a mini skip differs from company to company, determined by what sizes they have.
The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 cubic yard skip for their smallest option. Price is based on the actual size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for household work such as small DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
