Litherland Skip Hire FAQs
Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?
No. You are only allowed to fill up the skip up to the level load line. Loading waste materials up above this line will make it dangerous to move, and you might be asked to take off the excess waste before your skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to increase the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you offer?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container that can be used to get rid of significant quantities of waste materials. Mostly, these type of containers are hired for commercial purposes. Having said that, domestic customers may also use them. You have to think about the area they will occupy, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be utilised for light waste such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and concrete.
When will my skip be delivered?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We can normally offer a next day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, as to go on public property (for example a street), you will have to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
Due to several factors that can impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it to be delivered within a AM or PM slot.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
Nearly all skip sizes can be delivered with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the bin, particularly with weighty materials, such as soil and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, like household furniture.
How long can I hire a skip for?
You can normally keep your skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, there is the choice of providing a preferred collection date when placing your order.
Alternatively, simply let us know when you have finished with your skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the next working day.
It could take a bit longer to pick up your skip during busy times, however we will always try to come as quickly as possible.
What can I put in the skip?
Before ordering a skip, you must ensure that the kind of waste you wish to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types you may throw in your skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use a skip to dispose of building and construction waste, like old bricks, soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Examples of prohibited items include things like electronic products, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently need to be discarded separately from general waste.
How much does skip hire in Litherland cost?
The cost of getting a skip in Litherland is determined by the size of skip you want. The least expensive skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you want to have the skip positioned on the road, as you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Litherland?
As we provide a nationwide waste management service, we utilise a comprehensive network of verified companies. These can vary from small family-run skip hire firms to nationwide waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental expectations.
Do you deliver to other areas in Merseyside?
Indeed, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply skips to locations throughout Merseyside, including Litherland, Rainford, Haydock and Maghull. So wherever you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
What sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Litherland, you will have numerous sizes to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for modest home clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also means they are great for house clear ups including bulky objects like household furniture and beds.
We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for those with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only suited to light waste, so they can not be hired to dispose of garden soil or concrete.
For additional information about the different sizes available, such as dimensions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
It usually is a good idea to be there when anybody delivers anything to your home. That allows you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be dropped exactly where you need it.
The same goes if you have a company. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
Can I throw away electronic items in the skip?
Electric powered items such as television sets, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore cannot be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic goods need to be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.
If I need a skip on the road in Litherland, will I need to get a permit?
Usually, it will be possible to have your skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to get this done, you need to get consent from your local authority in Litherland, which is known as a skip permit. We will arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will impose a fee for the license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
What is a builders skip?
The term builders skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The label originates from the fact that these are the most common sizes that are ordered by builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are suitable for a wide variety of household and business tasks. These are the largest skips which can be used for weighty builders waste like soil, rubble and gravel.
What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Litherland?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you would like to hire. Let us know whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on public property (like the road). Then, choose the date you want your skip to get delivered. Check your order and then make payment with our secure online payment platform. All done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Litherland on the day you have selected.
How large is a mini skip?
When you have a small amount of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip could be the perfect choice. What size is identified as a mini skip varies from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they provide.
2 cubic yards is the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The cost is dependent on the specific size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are great for household jobs like modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
What happens to the waste in my skip?
When you have finished filling your skip, we come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Litherland where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
