Marple Skip Hire FAQs

Am I able to get rid of electronic products in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods must be kept separate from general waste to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric powered items such as tumble dryers, televisions, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.

How big is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big industrial scale skips that are used mainly in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for companies that generate significant volumes of waste materials.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact skip provided by skip companies and is great for small DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms offer a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

When you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is designed for disposing of hefty building and construction rubbish, as it can be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop down door, although these are generally more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally low enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you want a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a skip that has a drop door is provided.

What is a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most commonly used for building and demolition jobs. There are usually two skip sizes that can be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to get rid of substantial volumes of building and demolition waste, like soil, rubble and rock.

Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for many other residential and commercial waste disposal tasks.

Is it ok to load the skip higher than the side?

You must not fill up your skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it up over the tip of this mark, it means your skip will not be safe and secure to move, and you can be asked to take off any excess waste before it can be collected.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is best to be there at the time it is delivered. You can then make sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip will be placed precisely where you need it. This also is true when you have a skip delivered to business premises, especially when gates limit access.

However, if this is not achievable, you don’t have to stress. Just let us know when making your booking, and then we will take care of everything.

What skip sizes can you supply?

Skips are available in a selection of sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is good for small domestic projects.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yd is a fantastic option for shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant waste disposal job to take on, the builder’s skip might be the most suitable option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label indicates, these represent the most frequent sizes used by builders for building waste, including clay and hardcore. But they can equally well be used for household waste such as old furniture or bathroom suites.

We also provide 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For more information about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What types of rubbish am I able to put in a skip?

You can use your skip to dispose of lots of different waste materials. We are used to picking up and processing numerous items from building jobs, garden projects and property clean-ups. Examples of permitted waste materials include:

  • Pieces of furniture
  • Tree cuttings
  • Top soil
  • Concrete
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Cabinets and units

Most waste types are generally allowed, and so whether you want to dispose of furniture, plastic materials, wood or unwanted toys, we can normally take your waste away.

The quantity and waste types you put into the skip will vary depending on which size skip you chosen. Skips do have a weight limit for safety. So if you need to get rid of top soil and hardcore, for example, the largest size container you will be able to use is the 8 yard builders skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?

There are several items you are not able to discard in the skip. The main reason for this is that these goods include hazardous components which could harm the environment. They could also be hazardous to human health, so they need to be discarded separately under UK laws.

Some of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer monitors
  • Battery packs
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Who will deliver my skip?

We use a network of both local and nationwide skip hire firms to supply skips to our customers in Marple and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner skip hire companies are approved and evaluated to make certain they meet our standards for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

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

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get segregated into a variety of waste types, which includes stone, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!

What is the cost of skip hire in Marple?

Our goal is to offer the cheapest skip hire service in Marple. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip that you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have your skip situated on the highway or other council property, you will also need to factor in the additional expense of the skip permit.

If I need a skip on a road in Marple, will I need a permit?

This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if your skip will be on your private property, such as a drive or within your business premises.

Should you have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, and then we can make the required arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate your skip on private land, you will save a few pounds.

Will you deliver to other areas in Greater Manchester?

Of course, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skips to areas throughout Greater Manchester, such as Marple, Ramsbottom, Irlam and Manchester. So no matter where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

How long can I hire a skip for?

The regular hire period is a fortnight from your date of delivery. Having said that, at the time you book your skip, you can tell us a collection date that is best for you. Of course, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if the skip is full sooner than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it picked up at the earliest opportunity.

We will usually be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. But, it is important to bear in mind this may not be possible during busy times. Once collected, the skip will be transported to your local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed and sorted.

When will my skip be delivered?

If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we can even offer a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed during the online order process.

Other areas covered include Ramsbottom, Irlam, Manchester, Worsley, Failsworth, Ashton-under-Lyne, Tyldesley and Denton.
