Middleton Skip Hire FAQs

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

Our normal hire term is 2 weeks from your date of delivery. Having said that, when you book your skip, you can choose a pick up date that will work for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if your skip is fully loaded sooner than expected, contact us, and we will pick it up as soon as possible.

We will usually complete collections within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this may not be possible during busier periods. Once collected, the waste will be transported to your local waste transfer facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Will a Middleton skip hire company deliver my skip?

As we offer a nationwide skip hire service, we utilise an extensive network of approved companies. These include small family-run skip hire companies to national waste management service providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they satisfy our high customer service and environmental standards.

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large commercial size skips that are used predominantly within the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for organisations that produce large quantities of waste materials.

Am I able to dispose of electrical items in the skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods must be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electronic items including washing machines, TVs, toasters, laptops and even hairdryers.

How long does it take to get a skip in Middleton?

We will make sure your skip is provided on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.

Although we cannot guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

You have to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will usually incur a charge for the wasted journey.

What different sizes do skips come in?

We supply a full range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip ideal for modest DIY jobs and house clearances. A common choice for bigger projects, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard skip.

For Middleton businesses which generate a large volume of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest skip delivered by skip companies and is perfect for small DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some firms will provide a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

Can I put all types of waste in a skip?

A skip may be used to dispose of lots of different types of waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and processing a multitude of materials generated from building jobs, garden projects and house clearances. A few examples of permitted waste products include things like:

  • Pieces of furniture
  • Garden cuttings
  • Soil
  • Stone
  • Bathroom suites
  • Cabinets and units

Many waste materials will be accepted, and so whether you need to throw out metals, plastic materials, wood or textiles, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The quantity and items you throw into the skip may vary depending on the size skip you ordered. All skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you need to dispose of top soil and gravel, as an example, the biggest size you will be allowed to use is the 8 yard skip.

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

There are several items you will not be permitted to dispose of in the skip. The reason behind this is that some products include hazardous elements which could cause damage to the environment. They could also be damaging to human health, and so they have to be disposed of separately under UK legislation.

Some examples of the items which are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer monitors
  • Battery packs
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

If I would like a skip on the road in Middleton, will I need to get a permit?

If possible, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface area. For anyone who is carrying out a household job, then a driveway will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. On the other hand, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public land, you have got to have 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 Middleton. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be issued on your behalf. An extra cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

Through our network of local and national skip hire businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service.

What is classed as a builders skip?

The builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These are the biggest containers that can be used to dispose of substantial construction waste materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or garden soil.

The builder’s skip is perfect for a number of projects. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing out the attic, these big skips are usually the most cost-effective option available.

Where will you take the waste from my skip?

The waste in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling station. Here the contents will be segregated by machinery and also by hand into different waste materials, including metal, paper, rubble and wood. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.

How do I order a skip online?

Hiring a skip shouldn’t be difficult. That is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, type in your postcode to view all the different skips we are able to deliver to Middleton. Choose which size you want to hire, and confirm whether it will be positioned on your own property. Enter your information and then make payment using our secure payment platform.

After your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with all of your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

Am I allowed to load up the skip above the side?

Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it unsafe to move, and you may have to empty any items over the level load mark. This also means you are not allowed to make use of sheets of wood, doors or any other item, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to ensure that bins aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure that you hire the appropriate size of skip to meet your requirements and get in touch if you are not sure which size you require. We would be happy to help.

Will the skip come with a drop down door?

Using a skip that has a drop down door makes loading waste into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly the case with heavy materials such as soil or rubble, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading up large bulky items like furniture much easier as well.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, although this can 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 best to supply this.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?

It is usually a good idea to be in when anyone delivers anything to your home. You can then ensure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be located just where you want it.

The same thing applies if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.

However, when it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

Other areas covered include Rochdale, Tyldesley, Swinton, Ashton-under-Lyne, Manchester, Marple, Hyde and Failsworth.
