Millom Skip Hire FAQs
How long can I hire a skip for?
Normally, you can have the skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you don’t have to hurry through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is full ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.
Is it possible to get a skip that has a drop down door?
For anyone who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is designed for disposing of heavy building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop down door, however they are less common. The reason being these sizes are generally small enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to make sure a container that has a drop door is delivered.
What will happen to my rubbish once the skip is picked up?
Once you have finished filling up your skip, we come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Millom where we will separate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
Am I able to put all sorts of rubbish in a skip?
This is amongst the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. The most important thing to consider is that you can fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of rubbish that will come from garden work, building work and household clearances.
Some of the most common things which we pick up in skips include garden soil, wood, bush trimmings, cupboards, baths, and other household objects.
There are some materials that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This can include any electronic items (fridge freezers, monitors or washing machines for example), old car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all considered hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them must adhere to an entirely different procedure to make sure they don’t cause damage to the environment.
How do I hire a skip online?
Hiring a skip in Millom through us is very straightforward. Pick the skip size you require and then input a handful of details about when and where you want the skip to be delivered. You then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered.
Will a skip hire company from Millom deliver my skip?
As we offer a nationwide waste management service, we use a diverse network of approved companies. These range from small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental standards.
Am I allowed to load up my skip higher than level load mark?
Unfortunately not. You must only fill your skip up to the level load line. Piling waste up over this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you might be told to remove the excess waste before the skip can be collected. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.
Do I need to be home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we deliver the skip. Providing we can access where you need it positioned, we are able to manage everything.
For those who will not be in, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when you book the order. For instance, you might need the skip to be dropped at a particular area of your property. Or you might need to ensure the skip does not hinder entry to your garage.
No matter what the situation might be, simply tell us when you place your order, and we will ensure the directions will be passed to the delivery driver.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is probably the most frequent skip that is used in the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is great for most building and demolition projects, which is where the name comes from.
The 8 yard builders skip is the biggest size which can be used for heavy waste such as soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you have asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your booking prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver, we strive to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery location, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can result in a fee for the wasted trip.
How big is the mini skip?
When you have a small amount of waste to get rid of, a mini skip may be the best choice. What size is described as a mini skip differs from business to business, based on what sizes they supply.
2 cubic yards is probably the most common size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to have a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The cost depends on the specific size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for residential work like modest DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you need it put on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
We provide a complete variety of skip sizes to household and industrial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the enormous 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the various skip sizes to choose from, with a rough idea of how much waste each size is capable of holding:
- 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

Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Millom?
Generally, it will be possible to have the skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But in order to do this, you have got to get consent from your local council in Millom, which is called a skip permit. We can organise this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will impose a fee for your license, and it may sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.

What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you manage a business in Millom and want to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a fantastic option. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers that you can hire.
As the name suggests, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, which are picked up by using chains.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products must be kept separate from general rubbish to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electronic products such as washing machines, TVs, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.
