Maghull Skip Hire FAQs
What things can I put in the skip?
You are allowed to put a variety of waste into your skip. This can include wood, floor tiles, plastics or bricks from a property clearance. Plant and bush clippings, soil and stone from garden tasks are permitted too. Dated cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be discarded in your skip.
There are, however, some items that you are not allowed to put in a skip due to the potential environmental or health risk they can cause.
You can not get rid of your fridge, computer monitor or old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. All of these items incorporate hazardous elements in one kind or another. They need to be discarded separately from general waste.
If you want hazardous waste removal, we may be able to organise an independent service for this material. Feel free to email for further details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
Am I able to throw away electrical items in my skip?
Electrical items such as tv sets, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and so should not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric goods should be separated from other rubbish. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly manner.
What is the size of a builders skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most frequently used for building and demolition work. There are typically two skip sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers which you can use to dispose of substantial quantities of construction and demolition materials, such as earth, rubble and bricks.
Even though they are labelled a builders skip, they can be used for various other domestic and commercial waste disposal tasks.
What are the different skip sizes available?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Maghull, you will have several options to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard container, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is great for small home clearances and DIY tasks.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most frequent sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their substantial capacity also means they are well suited for house tidy ups involving large items such as household furniture and beds.
We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only appropriate for light waste materials, so they can not be used to get rid of soil or rubble.
For further information about the various capacities offered, such as measurements, check out our guide to skip sizes.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip will be provided on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we are not able to promise a precise delivery time, we will do our very best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You will need to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will in most cases incur a fee for the wasted trip.
How do you hire a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you would like to hire. Tell us if the skip will be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (such as the street). After that, select the date you want the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment using our secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Maghull on the day you have selected.
How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?
If you have a small amount of waste to get rid of, the mini skip may be the perfect choice. What size is called a mini skip differs from business to business, based on what sizes they supply.
2 cubic yards is the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to have a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. Cost depends on the specific size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are fantastic for residential tasks including small DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Maghull?
To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Maghull, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display the sizes we offer in your area and how much each option will cost to hire. If the skip will be on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also have to be factored in.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip is delivered?
No, you do not need to be at home when we deliver your skip. Providing we are able to gain access to the place you want it positioned, we are able to take care of it all.
In the event you will not be in, just let us have any relevant delivery instructions when you book your order. For instance, you might prefer the skip to be dropped at a particular area of the driveway. Or you may need to ensure that the skip doesn’t hinder access to your garage.
Whatever the situation might be, let us know when ordering, and then we will ensure your instructions are passed on to the lorry driver.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Maghull?
Usually, it will be possible to get your skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But in order to do this, you will need to have approval from your local council in Maghull, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The council will impose a fee for this permit, and it can sometimes take 24-2 days for them to approve this.
What will happen to the waste?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the different waste streams, like timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?
A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a substantial skip that can be used to dispose of large volumes of rubbish. These skips are predominantly for commercial use but can be used by household customers also. However, you will require a lot of space as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger than the average skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.
As a result of the size, RORO containers can only be provided for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not suitable for disposing of soil and bricks.
Can I have a skip which has a drop down door?
Virtually all skips can be delivered with a drop door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the container, particularly with heavy materials, like garden soil and concrete, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky items, like household furniture.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
You can normally have your skip for as many as 2 weeks from the delivery date. You can provide a preferred pick up day when you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can let us know after you have finished, and then we will arrange the collection. In most cases, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take a little longer over busy periods.
Is it ok to stack up waste in my skip?
It is vital not to overload the skip. You should not pass the level load line that is indicated on the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it is very hazardous to move. Which means that if you overload the skip, you could be asked to take off the excess rubbish. However safe you think the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This is unsafe and is prohibited.
