Below are some of the common questions we receive relating to our skip hire service.
Littleborough Skip Hire FAQs
Is it ok to stack up waste in my skip?
No, you must only load your skip up to the level load line. Loading waste materials up above this line would make it unsafe to move, and you can be told to take away the surplus waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.
What types of waste can I put in my skip?
Before getting a skip, you must make sure that the kind of waste materials you wish to dispose of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials must be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you could put in a skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use a skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, like old bricks, soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Examples of prohibited items include things like electrical goods, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore have to be discarded separately from general rubbish.

What size skips do you provide?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Littleborough, you have multiple sizes to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is excellent for modest house clearances and DIY work.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also means they are perfect for house clearances involving large objects such as furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These containers are only suited to lightweight waste materials, so they can not be used to get rid of soil or rubble.
For additional information about the different sizes available, including dimensions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

How much waste will a mini skip hold?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, the mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to handle numerous tasks.

Although most commonly chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also handle small commercial jobs.

To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work in partnership with a wide range of local and national companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we can offer customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.
Can I dispose of electronic items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods must be kept separate from general waste to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This includes all electronic goods like washing machines, televisions, kettles, laptops and even hair straighteners.
How long will it take to get a skip in Littleborough?
If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we will even provide a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed when going through the order process.
Will my skip have a drop door?
For anyone who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is great for disposing of heavy building and construction materials, as it can be pushed into the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop-down door, although these are typically more uncommon. This is because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a container that has a drop door is provided.
What happens to the waste?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into the various waste materials, like timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What is classed as being a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most often supplied for construction and demolition jobs. There are generally two different skip sizes that may be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that can be used to dispose of significant amounts of building and demolition waste materials, such as garden soil, concrete and bricks.
Even though they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for multiple other residential and industrial waste disposal jobs.
If I require a skip on a road in Littleborough, will I need to have a permit?
In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like the skip to be placed on land outside of your business or home, you must secure permission from the local council in Littleborough, which is called a permit. If required, we will be happy to organise this for you, and so it’s one less point to think about. The council will charge a fee for your permit, plus you should know before placing your order that getting the licence can sometimes take up to two working days.
How can I hire a skip in Littleborough?
This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or public property (such as the street). Next, choose the date you need your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. Job done! We will deliver your skip to Littleborough on the date you have selected.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is delivered?
It is always a good idea to be available when anyone delivers something to your property. That allows you to ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be positioned just where you want it.
The same applies for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
You can typically keep a skip for as long as 2 weeks from your date of delivery. You can provide a preferred collection date at the time you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know after you have finished, and we will organise the collection. Generally, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer over hectic periods.
How large is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to get rid of huge quantities of waste materials. Predominantly, these type of skips are hired for industrial uses. Having said that, residential customers can also order them. You should think about the area they will take up, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they should only be utilised for light-weight materials like paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of garden soil and rubble.
