Mossley Skip Hire FAQs

Am I allowed to put electronic items in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods have to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered products like cookers, televisions, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.

What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into various waste types, which includes wood, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the collection is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

How do I order a skip online?

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

You don’t really need to be at your property when the skip is being delivered, however it will help. Being in when the skip arrives means you can make sure the lorry can be given full access and that the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is being delivered to a company premises, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

However, in the event you can’t be around during delivery, don’t worry. We just ask you to tell us when you place your order, and we will arrange things from there.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Mossley?

Our aim is to give you the lowest priced skip hire service in Mossley. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip you hire. This 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 any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the extra cost of a skip permit.

Will my skip have a drop door?

Nearly all skip sizes can be delivered with a drop door, making them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the container, particularly with weighty materials, like garden soil and gravel, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, like furniture.

Can you deliver to other areas in Greater Manchester?

We offer a UK wide skip hire and recycling service using a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you need skip hire in Mossley, Bury, Hale, Hyde or another location in Greater Manchester, we can assist.

What is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a cheap skip to dispose of some household waste, the mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to deal with many jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be positioned on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit.

Although most commonly hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even be used for small commercial jobs.

This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to offer customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builders skip is the size of skip most frequently hired for construction and demolition jobs. There are usually two different skip sizes that can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins which you can use to get rid of significant quantities of construction and demolition materials, such as earth, rubble and bricks.

Although they are branded a builders skip, these can be used for many other household and industrial waste disposal tasks.

What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container used to transport huge quantities of waste materials. Predominantly, these type of skips are used for commercial purposes. Having said that, household clients may also hire them. It is important to consider the space they will take up, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be hired for light-weight waste including plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of dirt and rubble.

Is it okay to fill the skip higher than the top?

You should not fill up a skip past the level load mark. If you fill it over the tip of this mark, it means that your skip will not be safe and secure to transport, and you might be asked to remove the excess rubbish prior to it being collected.

What kinds of rubbish am I able to dispose of in a skip?

You can use your skip to throw out lots of different waste materials. We are used to picking up and processing numerous items generated from building work, garden landscaping and home tidy-ups. Some examples of allowed waste materials include:

  • Pieces of furniture
  • Hedge cuttings
  • Soil
  • Bricks and rubble
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

The majority of materials will be allowed, and therefore whether you need to discard metals, plastics, wood or clothing, we can normally take your rubbish away.

The volume and materials you throw in your skip may vary based on the size skip you hired. All skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you wish to discard soil and concrete, for example, the largest size container you will be able to hire will be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

What sort of items am I not allowed to put in my skip?

There are some waste materials which you will not be permitted to throw out in the skip. The reason for this is that some products contain hazardous materials that may harm the environment. They can also be hazardous to human health, so they have to be discarded separately within UK law.

A few of the products that are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer screens
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Mossley?

In most cases, it is possible to have the skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But in order to do this, you must get permission from the local council in Mossley, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for the license, and it can sometimes take 24-2 days for them to approve this.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can usually hire your skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, you have the choice of providing a preferred collection day when placing your order.

Otherwise, simply tell us when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the following working day.

It might take a bit longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, however we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.

Other areas covered include Bury, Hale, Hyde, Eccles, Urmston, Romiley, Lees and Wigan.
