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

Leyland Skip Hire FAQs

Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?

No, you can not put old or broken electrical waste products in a skip. This includes items like laptops or computers, cookers, washing machines, refrigerators and television sets. These products can’t be thrown in a skip as they can include dangerous materials and components.

Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.

What skip sizes do you provide?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Leyland, you have numerous sizes to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 yard container, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for modest home clearances and DIY jobs.

The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most common sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also makes them perfect for household tidy ups involving bulky objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.

We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even bigger waste disposal needs. These containers are only suitable for light waste materials, so they cannot be used to get rid of garden soil or stone.

To get more information about the various skip sizes offered, such as measurements, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

Who will deliver my skip?

We use a network of both local and national skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Leyland and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner firms are approved and tested to guarantee they satisfy our standards for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

Do I have to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is best to be in at the time the skip is delivered. You can then make sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip will be positioned exactly where you need it. The same is true when you have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly when gates limit access.

However, when this isn’t possible, you do not need to stress. Simply tell us when placing your order, and then we will take care of everything.

When will my skip be delivered?

If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the very next day. Sometimes, we can even give you a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed during the order process.

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you run a company in Leyland and wish to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a perfect choice. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers available.

As the name suggests, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, in contrast to regular skips, which are picked up by using chains.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, making them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the skip, especially with heavy materials, like dirt and rubble, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.

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

The price of hiring a skip in Leyland is determined by the size of skip you need. The least expensive skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you need a larger sized skip, like an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also increase if you want to have a skip positioned on the highway, since you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most often hired for building and construction projects. There are generally two sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which you can use to dispose of significant amounts of construction and demolition materials, like soil, rubble and stone.

Although labelled a builder’s skip, these can be used for many other domestic and industrial waste disposal jobs.

How do you order a skip?

We have designed our booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to type in your delivery address to see all the different skip sizes we are able to provide in Leyland. Pick the right size to meet your needs and give us the details of when and where you want your skip delivered. You can then make payment with our secure payment platform, and we will send you an email to confirm the transaction as soon as your booking is complete!

What can I put in the skip?

Before hiring your skip, it is essential to ensure that the type of rubbish you wish to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

A few examples of waste types you can throw in your skip include home items like furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use your skip to discard building and construction rubbish, such as old bricks, top soil, stone, metals and gravel.

Some examples of forbidden items include electronic products, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore must be disposed of separately from general waste.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact skip available from skip firms and is great for small DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies offer a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

Do you deliver skips across Lancashire?

Yes, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skips to areas throughout Lancashire, including Leyland, Longridge, Bamber Bridge and Haslingden. So regardless of where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

Our regular hire period will be 2 weeks from your delivery date. However, at the time you book your skip, you can provide a pick up date that is perfect for you. Of course, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if your skip is loaded earlier than anticipated, contact us, and we will get it collected as quickly as possible.

We can normally be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this may not be possible at busy periods. Once collected, your skip will be transported to your local waste recycling facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Leyland?

Generally, it is possible to get the skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to get this done, you must have permission from your local authority in Leyland, which is called a skip permit. We will order this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council do impose a fee for this license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.

What happens to the waste in my skip?

As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into various waste streams, like timber, metals, plastics, etc. This ensures that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Am I allowed to fill up the skip above the level load mark?

It is vital to never overfill the skip. You must not pass the level load line that is shown on the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it will become very unsafe to transport. This means that when you overfill your skip, you could be required to take off the excess waste. However secure you believe the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. That is unsafe and is not allowed.

Other areas covered include Longridge, Bamber Bridge, Haslingden, Preston, Lytham St Anne’s, Barnoldswick, Fulwood and Whitworth.
