Macclesfield Skip Hire FAQs

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the smallest size available from skip companies and is great for small DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms will provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip?

The contents of the skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station. Here the contents will be separated by machines and by hand into various waste streams, such as metal, cardboard, stone and wood. Processing the waste in this way helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.

What size is a roll-on roll-off container?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container that can be used to transport significant amounts of waste materials. Generally, these containers are hired for commercial uses. Having said that, household clients may also hire them. You have to consider the space they occupy, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be utilised for light waste including paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and rubble.

Am I allowed to get rid of electrical items in my skip?

Unfortunately not, as electronic items including old televisions, fridges, pcs and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items need to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly fashion.

What can I put in the skip?

A skip can be hired to get rid of lots of different types of waste. We are used to picking up and handling lots of items generated from construction jobs, garden projects and house tidy-ups. Some examples of allowed waste materials can include:

  • Home furnishings
  • Garden cuttings
  • Soil
  • Bricks
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many different waste materials are usually accepted, and so whether you would like to throw out furniture, plastic materials, wood or clothing, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The volume and items you discard in your skip can vary depending on the size skip you hired. All skips have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you wish to discard soil and bricks, as an example, the biggest size you will be permitted to hire will be the 8 yard skip.

What type of materials am I not allowed to put in the skip?

There are a few items you are not allowed to get rid of in your skip. The reason for this is that these products contain hazardous components which could damage the environment. They can also be harmful to human health, and so they need to be disposed of separately within UK laws.

Some of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances

Am I allowed to fill up the skip above the level load line?

It is vital never to overfill a skip. You must not pass the level load mark shown on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it will become very hazardous to transport. This means that when you overfill the skip, you could be asked to take off the excess rubbish. No matter how secure you believe the skip to be, 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 therefore not allowed.

How long can I keep the skip for?

You can normally keep your skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, you have the option of offering a preferred collection time when you make your order.

Alternatively, just tell us when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the following working day.

It could take a little longer to collect your skip during busy periods, but we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.

How quick can you deliver a skip in Macclesfield?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a date that suits you. We will typically offer a following day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, as to be on public property (like a street), you must get a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.

Due to several factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it turning up in a AM or PM slot.

How many different skip sizes are available?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Macclesfield, you will have numerous sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 cubic yard container, also known as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is excellent for modest household clearances and DIY work.

Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also means they are suitable for house tidy ups involving large items such as pieces of furniture and beds.

We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even larger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight materials, so they cannot be used to get rid of soil or stone.

For additional information about the different sizes offered, including proportions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.

Can I get a skip that has a drop down door?

Using a skip that has a drop door helps make loading waste into the skip a lot easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste like dirt and rubble, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up large bulky items like furniture easier as well.

Most skips can be provided with a drop door, however this will sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when making your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.

What size is a builders skip?

The builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These will be the largest skips that can be hired to dispose of weighty building and construction materials such as stone, bricks, gravel or dirt.

A builder’s skip is perfect for a wide array of tasks. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning out your garden shed, these substantial skips tend to be the most cost-effective choice available.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Macclesfield?

In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want the skip to be placed on land outside of your business or residence, you have got to receive permission from your local council in Macclesfield, which is called a permit. If required, we will be happy to arrange this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less point to worry about. The council will charge a fee for your permit, and you should be aware before booking that obtaining the licence will often take up to two working days.

It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have the skip positioned on the highway or other council property, you will also need to factor in the additional price of a skip permit.

Should I be in when the skip is going to be delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be at home when it is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip is located precisely where you need it. The same applies when you have a skip delivered to company property, particularly when gates limit access.
