Milnrow Skip Hire FAQs

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

You don’t need to be home when the skip is going to be delivered, but it does help. Being there whenever the skip is due to be delivered means you can ensure the driver can be given complete access and that the skip will be located exactly where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is delivered to your business property, we will appreciate your support during the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

Even so, in the event you can’t be around at the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you book your order, and then we will organise everything from there.

What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?

The roll-on roll-off skip, often known as a RORO, is a large container used to get rid of large amounts of rubbish. These containers are primarily for business use but can be hired by residential clients also. However, you will need a lot of room because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger than the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, RORO skips should only be used for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and bricks.

What things can I put in the skip?

You may use a skip to get rid of a variety of waste types. We are used to collecting and processing numerous items produced from construction work, garden projects and house tidy-ups. A few examples of permitted waste products include:

  • Household furniture
  • Tree trimmings
  • Garden soil
  • Rubble
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Cabinets and units

Many waste types will be permitted, and therefore whether you would like to get rid of metals, plastic materials, timber or clothing, we can normally take your waste away.

The quantity and materials you throw in the skip will vary according to which size skip you have ordered. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you would like discard top soil and gravel, for example, the largest size you will be allowed to use would be the 8 yard builders skip.

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

There are several materials that you will not be able to get rid of in your skip. The reason behind this is that these items include hazardous components which could be damaging to the environment. They can also be hazardous to human health, so they have to be discarded separately under UK regulations.

Some of the items that are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC screens
  • Battery packs
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

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

No, you cannot dispose of old electronic waste products in a skip. This includes such things as laptops, microwaves, tumble dryers, freezers and monitors. These objects can’t be discarded in the skip as they can contain hazardous materials and components.

Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.

How many different skip sizes are there?

We offer a full-range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip best for modest DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A popular option for larger projects, renovations and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Milnrow firms which have a large amount of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

If I would like a skip on a road in Milnrow, will I need to have a permit?

If possible, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface. For anyone who is doing a domestic project, then the driveway will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. Having said that, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public land, you have got to obtain a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be placed on a road, grass verge as well as other public property in Milnrow. If this is required, we will request the permit to be issued on your behalf. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Milnrow?

This will depend on the size you need and whether you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the lowest priced option. The most costly and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.

Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?

It is very important never to overload a skip, as you run the risk of being told to take off excess waste prior to it being picked up. Whatever size you hire, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, as moving an overloaded skip is unsafe, as materials could fall and result in injuries or damage to other people.

To prevent this situation, please ensure that you order a skip size suitable for your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full but you have more waste to get rid of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The term builders skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yd skip. The term stems from the fact that they are the most typical sizes that are hired by builders and tradespeople.

These substantial skips are suited to an array of domestic and commercial jobs. These are the biggest size skips that can be used for heavy builders waste including dirt, rubble and gravel.

What will happen to the rubbish?

After you have finished with your skip, we come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling station either in or local to Milnrow where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

Do all skips have a drop door?

Generally speaking, nearly all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, depending on size, availability and location. If you require a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, as it enables you to wheelbarrow waste materials into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, since they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Do you deliver to other areas in Greater Manchester?

Yes. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to supply skips to both household and commercial customers across Greater Manchester and anywhere else within the UK.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

You can normally keep the skip for as long as 14 days from your delivery date. It is possible to provide a preferred collection date when you make your order. Alternatively, you can let us know once you have finished with the skip, and then we will arrange your collection. Usually, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer over busy times.
