We supply skips throughout Poynton and the nearby towns and villages. If you are getting a skip placed on private property (like a driveway), we can in most cases schedule delivery within 24 hours.

Poynton Skip Hire FAQs
Can you deliver to other areas in Cheshire?
We provide a UK wide skip hire and recycling service using a network of verified and fully licensed local partners. So whether you need skip hire in Poynton, Crewe, Chester, Winsford or any other area in Cheshire, we are able to assist.
How big is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, the mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to take on numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be situated on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.
Although most commonly hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also tackle small commercial jobs.
Can I load my skip above level load line?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it unsafe to move, and you will be asked to empty any contents over the level load mark. This also means that you are not allowed to use sheets of timber, doors or another item, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal responsibility to make sure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure that you choose the appropriate size of skip for your requirements and get in touch if you are uncertain which size you need. We will be pleased to help.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we will even give you a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed as part of the online order process.
Can I dispose of all types of waste in the skip?
It is possible to fill up your skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from house clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include wood, top soil, concrete, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you throw in the skip would depend on which size you have hired, as there is a weight limit. For example, when you are using the skip for heavy construction waste including concrete or garden soil, the maximum size you would be able to get is an 8 yard skip.
Some materials can not be disposed of in your skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to transport large quantities of waste. Primarily, these containers are used for business applications. However, residential customers can also hire them. It is essential to look at the space they will take up, because they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be utilised for light waste like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and rubble.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?
No, you do not have to be at home when we are delivering the skip. Provided that we can gain access to the place you want it delivered, we will manage everything.
For those who are not likely to be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when booking your order. For instance, you might want the skip to be located on a particular side of the property. Alternatively, you may want to ensure the skip doesn’t prevent use of your garage.
Whatever the case may be, provide the information when you place your order, and we will make sure your directions will be passed on to the delivery driver.
What is a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often supplied for building and demolition work. There are typically two skip sizes which can be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which you can use to dispose of large quantities of building and demolition waste, like dirt, concrete and rock.
Although they are branded a builders skip, they can of course be used for many other domestic and commercial waste disposal tasks.
Am I allowed to get rid of electrical items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products have to be kept separate from general waste to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric products including washing machines, TVs, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Virtually all containers can be delivered with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the skip, particularly with weighty materials, like dirt and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, like furniture.
Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Poynton?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a skip permit if it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if your skip is on your private property, like a drive or on your business premises.
If you need to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on private property, you will save some pounds.
What size skips can you provide?
We provide a complete variety of skip sizes to household and industrial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Poynton?
This depends upon the skip size you want and if you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the cheapest choice. The most expensive and biggest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.

Where will my rubbish go once the skip is picked up?
The rubbish in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling facility. Here the contents will be segregated by machines and also by hand into various waste streams, like metal, cardboard, concrete and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.

To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work with a number of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to provide customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, that will provide you with sufficient time to fill your skip. However, if you do need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
