Lytham St Anne’s Skip Hire FAQs

How much waste will fit in a mini skip?

If you are searching for a low-cost skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip may 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 solution to tackle many tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be positioned on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.

Although most often hired by residential customers, the mini skip can even handle small commercial jobs.

How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container used to get rid of huge amounts of waste. In the majority of cases, these skips are hired for commercial purposes. Having said that, household customers can also order them. You will need to look at the area they occupy, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be utilised for lightweight waste such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of dirt and concrete.

What is the cost of skip hire in Lytham St Anne’s?

Our aim is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in Lytham St Anne’s. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip that you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you want to have the skip placed on the road or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the extra expense of the skip permit.

Am I able to get a skip which has a drop door?

Virtually all skip sizes can be delivered with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, such as dirt and gravel, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, such as household furniture.

What happens to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get segregated into a number of waste types, including stone, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection is recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!

What sizes do skips come in?

We provide a complete selection of skip capacities to domestic and commercial customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Lytham St Anne’s?

Hiring a skip in Lytham St Anne’s with us is very easy. Select the skip size you will need and then input a handful of details about when and where you want the skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then prepare to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

What types of waste materials can I put in the skip?

It is possible to put a wide array of rubbish in the skip. This includes wood, bathroom tiles, metal or concrete from a house clearance. Tree and bush clippings, top soil and stone from garden tasks are allowed too. Units from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be discarded in your skip.

There are, however, a few items that you are not allowed to put in a skip a result of the potential environmental or health risk they might trigger.

You are unable to get rid of your refrigerator, laptop or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items incorporate hazardous elements in one type or another. They should be discarded separately from your general waste.

If you want hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to organise an independent service for this waste. Feel free to email us for more information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling centre.

Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be at home on the day the skip is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip is located exactly where you need it. This also applies for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly if gates restrict access.

However, if this is not feasible, you don’t need to be concerned. Simply let us know when placing your order, and we will take care of the rest.

Who will deliver my skip?

A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Lytham St Anne’s. We work with a network of both local and national businesses to enable us to offer our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These firms are assessed to make certain they satisfy the high standards we require in terms of service, cost and environmental performance.

Can I dispose of electronic items in my skip?

Electrical objects including television sets, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore should not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical objects have to be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.

Do you deliver to other areas in Lancashire?

Certainly. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we can supply skips to both domestic and business customers across Lancashire and anywhere else in the UK.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Lytham St Anne’s?

Preferably, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface. For anybody who is carrying out a household project, then the drive is going to be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. However, if neither is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you have got to get a permit from the local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be dropped on a road, grass verge or any other public property in Lytham St Anne’s. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be granted for you. An extra cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ensure your skip is delivered when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.

Although we are not able to promise an exact delivery time, we will do our best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

It is important to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will most likely incur a fee for the wasted journey.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, this will provide you with plenty of time to fill up the skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, if you finish with the skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just let us know once you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.

Is it okay to fill up the skip above the top?

It is important never to overfill your skip, as you risk being told to take off excessive waste before it can be picked up. Regardless of the size you order, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, because moving an overloaded bin will be hazardous, as objects could fall and result in injuries or damage to others.

To avoid this situation, please be sure you order a skip size suited to your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some further waste to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.

What is a builders skip?

The builder’s skip is regarded as the common skip that is hired across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is great for most building and construction projects, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip will be the biggest option that can be used for hefty waste materials including dirt, concrete, stone and gravel.

Other areas covered include Heysham, Garstang, Barnoldswick, Padiham, Clitheroe, Brierfield, Freckleton and Blackpool.
