Poulton-le-Fylde Skip Hire FAQs

Hiring a skip should not be difficult. This is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible.

Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, because electronic items like old TVs, fridge freezers, computers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly fashion.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are perfect for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furniture and broken baby toys to paving slabs and concrete. With a total capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you having to make several trips to your local recycling centre.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. They are the biggest containers used to get rid of substantial construction waste such as rock, concrete, gravel or soil.
A builders skip is great for a wide range of tasks. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning out your shed, these large containers will often be the most cost-effective solution available.

Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will then be asked to remove any rubbish higher than the level load mark. This also means you can not use sheets of timber, doors or some other object, as this will increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal obligation to ensure that containers are not overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure to choose the correct sized skip for your requirements and get in contact if you’re not sure which size is best. We will be pleased to help.
Will a Poulton-le-Fylde skip hire company deliver my skip?
Since we provide a UK-wide waste management service, we utilise an extensive network of verified and approved companies. These range from small local skip hire firms to national waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental principles.
How long can I keep the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to a fortnight. In most cases, that will provide you with plenty of time to load the skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, if you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your pick up. Just tell us when you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.
Do I need to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t have to be at your property when your skip is delivered, however it does help. Being there whenever the skip is due for delivery means you can ensure the lorry is given full access and that your skip will be positioned precisely where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is hired to company premises, we will appreciate your support during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, if you can’t be available during the time of delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you book your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste gets segregated into a range of waste types, which includes stone, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the collection is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We can typically deliver skips to Poulton-le-Fylde the next working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking system offers you a number of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like the skip to arrive asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
If I need a skip on a road in Poulton-le-Fylde, will I need to get a permit?
In most situations, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you want your skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or residence, you will have to obtain authorisation from the local council in Poulton-le-Fylde, which is known as a permit. If required, we would be happy to arrange this on your behalf, so it’s one less thing to think about. The council will charge a fee for the skip permit, plus you should be aware before ordering that obtaining the licence can often take up to two working days.
What can I put in my skip?
This is one of the most popular questions people have about our service. What is important to consider is that you may fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of rubbish that can come from garden work, building work and household clearances.
Among the most common things which we find in skips include dirt, timber, bush trimmings, kitchen cabinets, sinks, and various household objects.
There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. For example, any electronic items (fridges and freezers, televisions or printers for example), car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste, and therefore getting rid of them must follow an entirely different procedure to ensure they don’t result in harm to the environment.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you manage a business in Poulton-le-Fylde and want to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a perfect option. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers that can be hired.
As the label suggests, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike conventional skips, that are lifted by using chains.
Can I have a skip that has a drop door?
The vast majority of containers can be supplied with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the bin, especially with weighty materials, such as garden soil and concrete, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in big and bulky items, like household furniture.
