Below are a few of the common questions we receive regarding our skip hire and recycling services.

Padiham Skip Hire FAQs

What happens to the waste?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste will get segregated into several different waste types, including timber, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

Normally, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.

Am I allowed to throw away electronic products in my skip?

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

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

I’m afraid not. You can only fill the skip up to the level load mark. Loading rubbish up over this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you could be asked to get rid of the excess waste before your skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.

Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?

Using a skip that has a drop down door will make filling waste into the skip so much easier. This is especially the case with heavy waste materials such as dirt and concrete, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of big bulky items like household furniture easier as well.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, however this can sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a drop door is required, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.

Can you deliver to other areas in Lancashire?

In addition to delivering skips to Padiham, we can also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Lancashire. By utilising a network of regional and national waste management and recycling businesses, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering in Padiham, Trawden or Oswaldtwistle, we have got you covered.

Am I able to put all types of rubbish in a skip?

You can put a variety of waste into the skip. This includes wood, tile, plastics or concrete from a property clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden jobs are allowed as well. Worktops and units from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also go in your skip.

However, there are a few things that can’t be put in a skip because of the possible ecological or health risks they might cause.

You cannot get rid of your fridge, laptop or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things contain hazardous elements in one kind or another. They must be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.

If you require hazardous waste removal, we may be able to organise an independent collection for this waste. Feel free to get in touch for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

How can I order a skip in Padiham?

Hiring a skip shouldn’t be hard. This is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, type in your delivery postcode to see all the different skips we can deliver to Padiham. Pick which size you wish to order, and confirm whether it is going to be dropped on private property. Type in your information and then make payment using our secure online payment platform.

As soon as your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

What is a builders skip?

The builders skip is the most popular skip which is ordered across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is perfect for most building jobs, which is where the label comes from.

The 8 yard builders skip will be the biggest option that you can use for hefty waste like dirt, concrete, rock and rubble.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

If you run a business in Padiham and wish to dispose of large quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a perfect option. Available in 20 – 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips that can be hired.

As the name implies, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, as opposed to standard skips, which are lifted by using chains.

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are great for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furnishings and broken baby toys to paving slabs and soil. Having a volume of around 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make multiple journeys to your local recycling centre.

Who will deliver my skip?

We utilise a network of both local and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in Padiham and the rest of the country. Each of our partner skip hire providers are verified and tested to ensure they match our standards for price, service, recycling and reliability.

What is the cost of skip hire in Padiham?

Our goal is to provide the cheapest skip hire service in Padiham. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have the skip positioned on the road or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the added cost of the skip permit.

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

When you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can be sure the lorry has complete access and that the skip can be situated exactly where you want it. The same is applicable if you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly if gates restrict access.

However, when this is not feasible, you don’t have to worry. Just tell us when you are placing your order, and then we will take care of the rest.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will make sure your skip is delivered when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the next day.

Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You have to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will usually incur a fee for the wasted journey.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Padiham?

Normally, it will be possible to get a skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to do this, you will need to get permission from your local council in Padiham, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to organise this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council will impose a fee for your license, and it may sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

What size skips do you supply?

Skips are offered in a variety of different sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small residential jobs.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a fantastic choice for attic clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to tackle, the builder’s skip might be the best option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title suggests, these represent the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, including soil and stone. However they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also provide 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
