Below are some of the typical questions we have received regarding our skip hire and recycling services.

Leigh Skip Hire FAQs

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to a fortnight. In most cases, this provides you with plenty of time to fill up the skip. However, if you do need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, in the event you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.

How do I order a skip?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip shall be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on public property (such as the street). Then, pick the day you would like your skip to be delivered. Check your order and then make payment with our secure online payment platform. Job done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Leigh on the date you have chosen.

What happens to the rubbish?

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

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

If you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is best to be in on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can be sure the lorry has total access and that the skip can be placed precisely where you need it. The same applies when you have a skip delivered to business premises, especially if gates restrict access.

Having said that, if this isn’t feasible, you do not need to be concerned. Simply let us know when you are placing your order, and we will take care of everything.

Will my skip come with a drop down door?

The vast majority of skip sizes can be delivered with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t 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 best to accommodate.

Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the skip, especially with weighty materials, such as dirt and concrete, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, like household furniture.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Leigh?

Our aim is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Leigh. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have a skip situated on the road or other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the added cost of a skip permit.

Can I dispose of electronic items in my skip?

Unfortunately this is not allowed, since electrical items such as old televisions, cookers, pcs and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Leigh?

Normally, it is possible to get the skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But to do this, you need to have permission from your local council in Leigh, which is known as a skip permit. We can order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for this permit, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

How many different skip sizes are available?

We are able to offer a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for modest DIY tasks and house clearances. A common choice for bigger tasks, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Leigh businesses which produce a large volume of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is regarded as the popular skip which is used across the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builders skip is perfect for most building and demolition projects, which is where the name originates from.

The 8 yard builder’s skip will be the biggest option that you can use for heavy materials such as soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.

Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?

No, you are only allowed to fill the skip up to the level load mark. Loading waste up over this line would make it unsafe to transport, and you may be told to take off the excess waste before the skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.

Will you deliver skips across Greater Manchester?

Of course, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skips to areas throughout Greater Manchester, such as Leigh, Oldham, Hindley and Milnrow. So wherever you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

If you have a small amount of rubbish to throw out, a mini skip may be the ideal choice. What size is described as a mini skip differs from business to business, depending on what sizes they supply.

The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. Cost is dependent on the actual size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are good for domestic jobs like modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of large volumes of waste. In the majority of cases, these type of skips are hired for business purposes. Having said that, residential clients may also use them. You should look at the space they will occupy, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be utilised for light-weight waste like paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of soil and hardcore.

Will a Leigh skip hire company deliver my skip?

Since we provide a UK-wide skip service, we utilise a comprehensive network of verified businesses. These vary from small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to ensure they meet our high customer service and environmental standards.

How soon can you deliver a skip in Leigh?

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

When you confirm your order before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will normally have your skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we strive to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery position, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will result in a charge for a wasted journey.

What waste can I put in a skip?

This is amongst the most frequent questions people have about our service. What is important to remember is that you may fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of waste that may result from garden projects, building work and property clearances.

Some of the most common things that we see in our skips include garden soil, timber, tree trimmings, cabinets, toilets, as well as other household items.

However, there are some materials that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. For example, any electronic objects (fridge freezers, monitors or computers for example), car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all classed as hazardous waste, and disposing of them must comply with a completely different procedure to ensure they don’t cause damage to the environment.

Other areas covered include Oldham, Hindley, Milnrow, Middleton, Stockport, Droylsden, Bramhall and Atherton.
