We offer a complete range of sizes suitable for all of your waste removal needs. From the small mini skip up to the 16 yard container, not forgetting our selection of commercial roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers.
Our team deliver skips throughout Middlewich and the surrounding towns and villages. If you are getting a skip positioned on private property (like a driveway), we can typically organise delivery within 24 hours. Skips that will be dropped on a road take a little bit longer, since we will need to purchase a permit from the local authority.

Middlewich Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electric goods like tumble dryers, televisions, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.
What are the different skip sizes available?
We provide a full selection of skip sizes to household and commercial customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the enormous 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the different sized skips on offer, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each size can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
- 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

Can I fill up my skip higher than the level load mark?
No. You can only fill the skip up to the level load mark. Loading rubbish up above this line would make it unsafe to move, and you could be asked to take off the surplus waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.
How large is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are perfect for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furnishings and broken baby toys to paving slabs and bricks. With a total capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make multiple journeys to the local recycling centre.
What is the cost of skip hire in Middlewich?
Our aim is to give you the most affordable skip hire service in Middlewich. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have your skip located on the road or other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the extra expense of a skip permit.
When will my skip be delivered?
If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. In some cases, we can even offer a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed as part of the online order process.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Middlewich?
In the vast majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need the skip to be situated on land outside of your company or residence, you will need to get authorisation from your local council in Middlewich, which is known as a permit. If necessary, we would be happy to organise this for you, so it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for the license, and you should know before ordering that obtaining the permit can often take up to two working days.
Will a Middlewich skip hire company deliver my skip?
As we offer a nationwide skip service, we utilise a diverse network of verified and approved businesses. These include small local skip hire firms to national waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.
What is classed as a builders skip?
The phrase builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The name comes from the fact that they are the most common sizes used by builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are ideal for an array of domestic and commercial projects. These are the biggest size skips that can be used for weighty builders waste such as soil, stone and concrete.
Will my skip have a drop door?
Having a skip that has a drop down door will make filling rubbish into the skip a lot easier. This is especially true with hefty materials like soil or concrete, which can then be loaded into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away big bulky items like furniture much easier as well.
The majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, but this can sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when placing your booking if a door is needed, and we will do our very best to supply this.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large industrial scale skips that are used primarily in the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for organisations that generate large quantities of waste materials.
How do I hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you would like to hire. Tell us if the skip is going to be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or public property (such as the street). Then, select the date you want your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Middlewich on the day you have chosen.
Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be there on the day the skip is delivered. You can then be sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip is placed precisely where you want it. The same applies for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, especially when gates limit access.
However, when this is not feasible, you do not need to stress. Simply tell us when you are making your booking, and we will take care of the rest.
Can I put all kinds of waste in the skip?
You are able to throw a wide array of waste in the skip. This can include wood, floor tiles, metal or concrete from a household clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, soil and stone from garden work is permitted too. Cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also go in a skip.
However, there are a few items that you are not allowed to put in a skip due to the potential environment or health risks they may cause.
You can’t throw out your refrigerator, computer or old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items contain hazardous elements in one form or another. They must be disposed of separately from your normal waste.
If you require hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to organise a separate collection for this waste. Feel free to get in touch for more information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
What happens to the rubbish in the skip?
After you have finished filling your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer station either in or local to Middlewich where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
Can you deliver skips across Cheshire?
Certainly, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply skips to locations across Cheshire, such as Middlewich, Frodsham, Bollington and Tarporley. So regardless of where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
How long can I hire the skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, this will provide you with plenty of time to load the skip. However, if you need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, should you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just tell us when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.
