Little Lever Skip Hire FAQs
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 frequently supplied for building and demolition work. There are generally two different skip sizes which can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to get rid of substantial quantities of building and demolition waste materials, including garden soil, rubble and bricks.
Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for multiple other household and industrial waste disposal jobs.
Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?
It usually is best if you can be available when anybody delivers something to your home. That allows you to ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located just where you want it.
The same thing applies for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, should it be unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.

What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are perfect for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and broken toys to paving slabs and rubble. Having a volume of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make numerous visits to the local recycling centre.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Little Lever?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work in partnership with a variety of local and national companies. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we can supply customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into different waste materials, such as wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to get rid of large amounts of waste materials. Generally, these type of containers are hired for industrial purposes. Having said that, household customers can also order them. You have to look at the area they take up, as they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they must only be utilised for light-weight waste such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of soil and stone.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Electronic objects like television sets, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste type and so cannot be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic products should be segregated from other waste. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
Am I allowed to put all types of waste in my skip?
This is among the most popular questions people have about our service. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you may fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of types of waste that will come from garden projects, building work and house clearances.
Some of the most typical items that we pick up in our skips include soil, timber, tree cuttings, cupboards, baths, and various household products.
However, there are some waste materials that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. For example, any electrical goods (fridge freezers, TVs and printers for example), old car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all classed as hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them must adhere to a completely different process to make sure they don’t result in harm to the environment.
How long can I hire a skip for?
Typically, you can keep a skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you do not need to hurry through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.
Is it ok to load my skip above the side?
I’m afraid not. You are only allowed to pack the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste materials up above this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you may be asked to take off the extra waste before your skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Little Lever?
To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Little Lever, enter your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display the sizes we offer in your area and how much each one costs to hire. If the skip is going on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.
Is it possible to get a skip which has a drop down door?
For anybody who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is made for getting rid of heavy building and construction rubbish, as it can be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop down door, although these are less common. This is because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our very best to make sure a container with a drop door is delivered.
How fast can you deliver a skip to Little Lever?
We can usually supply skips to Little Lever the following working day when your order is made before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking program offers you various delivery dates to select from. So whether you would like the skip delivered ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
What sizes do skips come in?
We are able to provide a full range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip great for modest DIY projects and domestic clearances. A common option for larger sized tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Little Lever companies with a large amount of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Can you deliver skips across Greater Manchester?
Sure, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skips to areas across Greater Manchester, such as Little Lever, Hale, Ince-in-Makerfield and Denton. So no matter where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Little Lever?
If possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface area. When you are doing a household job, then the driveway is going to be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. Having said that, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public land, you must get a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be dropped on the street, grass verge or any other public property in Little Lever. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be issued for you. An additional fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.
