Oswaldtwistle Skip Hire FAQs
What waste can I put in a skip?
It is possible to put a wide array of waste types into the skip. This includes wood, bathroom tiles, plastics or concrete from a house clearance. Tree and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden jobs are permitted too. Dated units from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be thrown in a skip.
There are, however, a few items that you can’t put in a skip due to the potential ecological or health risks they might trigger.
You cannot throw in your fridge freezer, laptop or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things contain hazardous materials in one kind or another. They need to be disposed of separately from your normal waste.
If you need hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to organise an independent collection for this material. Feel free to contact us for more details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
What happens to my rubbish when the skip is picked up?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the different waste streams, like timber, metals, plastics, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container used to dispose of large quantities of waste. In most cases, these containers are hired for industrial applications. Having said that, household clients can also use them. You will need to think about the area they will take up, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they must only be hired for light-weight waste including paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of soil and rubble.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Oswaldtwistle, you have multiple options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for small household clearances and DIY tasks.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also makes them well suited for household tidy ups involving large items such as household furniture and beds.
We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even larger waste disposal requirements. These containers are only appropriate for light materials, so they can not be hired to get rid of garden soil or stone.
For further details about the different capacities available, including proportions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is probably the most common skip that is hired in the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builder’s skip is fantastic for most building jobs, which is where the name comes from.
The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip is the biggest size which you can use for heavy waste like soil, concrete, rock and gravel.

Will you deliver to other areas in Lancashire?
We offer a UK wide skip hire and recycling service through a network of verified and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Oswaldtwistle, Blackpool, Thornton, Whitworth or any other site in Lancashire, we are able to help.
Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Oswaldtwistle?
In most situations, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like the skip to be located on land outside of your company or residence, you need to obtain permission from your local council in Oswaldtwistle, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we would gladly organise this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less thing to think about. The council does charge a fee for your skip license, plus you should know before ordering that obtaining the licence can sometimes take up to two working days.
Is it ok to fill up my skip higher than the level load line?
No. You must only fill your skip up to the level load line. Stacking rubbish up over this line will make it dangerous to transport, and you could be told to take away the surplus waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to increase the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.
Will a skip hire company from Oswaldtwistle deliver my skip?
To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work in partnership with a wide range of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to guarantee we can supply customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?
Typically, most skips can be provided with a drop door, depending on size, availability and location. If you require a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip that has a drop door is primarily helpful when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, because it allows you to wheelbarrow waste materials straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, since they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Am I able to get rid of electrical items in my skip?
No, you can not throw old or unwanted electronic waste products in your skip. This can include things such as printers, hobs, tumble dryers, fridges and monitors. Electronic objects can’t be discarded in a skip as they can include hazardous materials and components.
Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
How long can I hire a skip for?
You can in most cases keep your skip for as many as two weeks from your date of delivery. You may provide a preferred pick up date when you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have finished with the skip, and we will plan the collection. Usually, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during busy times.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when your skip is being delivered, but it will help. Being home when your skip arrives means that you can make sure the lorry is given complete access and that your skip can be positioned precisely where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is delivered to your business premises, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
However, when you can’t be around for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you book your order, and then we will organise everything from there.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are perfect for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and broken toys to paving slabs and soil. With a capacity of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make multiple journeys to your local recycling centre.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Oswaldtwistle?
The price of hiring a skip in Oswaldtwistle will depend on the size of skip you need. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you want a bigger skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also be more if you need to have your skip placed on the road, since you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your booking before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver your skip, we endeavour to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery area, as failed delivery attempts will result in a charge for the wasted journey.
