Liverpool Skip Hire FAQs
Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
No, you cannot dispose of old or broken electrical waste items in a skip. This can include such things as laptops, cookers, tumble dryers, freezers and computer monitors. Electronic items can’t be thrown in your skip because they can contain hazardous materials and components.
Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to a fortnight. In most cases, this gives you plenty of time to fill up the skip. However, if you do need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, in the event you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just contact us when you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial industrial scale skips used primarily within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for businesses that produce large amounts of waste materials.
Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?
Using a skip that has a drop down door will make filling waste into the skip a lot easier. This is especially true with hefty waste such as garden soil or stone, which can then be loaded directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of large bulky objects such as furniture a lot easier as well.
The majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, although this will sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.
Is it ok to pile up waste in my skip?
It is vital not to overload the skip. You can not pass the level load line indicated along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it will become very hazardous to move. Which means that if you overload the skip, you could be required to remove the surplus waste. Regardless of how safe you think the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This is unsafe and is not allowed.
How much waste can a builders skip hold?
The name builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These will be the biggest skips used to get rid of substantial building materials such as stone, concrete, rubble or soil.
A builders skip is ideal for a wide array of tasks. If you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning the loft space, these big skips tend to be the most cost-effective choice available.
What size skips do you provide?
We provide a wide range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip excellent for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A common choice for larger sized projects, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard skip.
For Liverpool businesses with a big quantity of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

When will the skip be delivered to me?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We can usually offer a following day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip on private property, since to be on public property (for example a highway), you will have to gain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of many factors that can impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it to be delivered within a AM or PM slot.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest size provided by skip firms and is great for small DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some companies offer you a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Who will deliver my skip?
Since we provide a national waste management service, we utilise a diverse network of verified and approved businesses. These vary from small local skip hire firms to nationwide waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental expectations.
Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Liverpool?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a permit when it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if the skip is on your private property, such as a driveway or on your business premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on private land, you will save some pounds.
Can I dispose of all kinds of waste in the skip?
You are able to throw a variety of waste into the skip. This includes wood, tile, plastics or rubble from a property clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, dirt and rock from garden work is permitted too. Worktops and units from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in the skip.
There are, however, a few items that you can’t put in a skip a result of the potential environmental or health risks they can cause.
You can’t throw out your fridge, laptop or your old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things incorporate hazardous materials in one kind or another. They need to be discarded separately from your general rubbish.
If you want hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to organise a separate collection for this waste. Please contact us for more information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
Where does the waste be taken to once the skip is picked up?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the different waste streams, including wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
