Radcliffe Skip Hire FAQs
How can I hire a skip in Radcliffe?
Hiring a skip shouldn’t be hard. That is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, enter in your postcode to see all the different skip sizes we are able to deliver to Radcliffe. Choose which size you wish to order, and confirm if it is going to be dropped on private property. Enter your information and then make payment using our secure payment platform.
When your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
Can I put electronic products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects need to be kept separate from general waste to be recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electrical goods like cookers, TVs, toasters, laptops and even hair straighteners.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Virtually all containers can be delivered with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, 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 we can do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the bin, especially with weighty materials, such as garden soil and concrete, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky objects, like household furniture.
What is the cost of skip hire in Radcliffe?
Our goal is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Radcliffe. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have your skip positioned on the highway or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the extra expense of a skip permit.
Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Radcliffe?
In most cases, it will be possible to have the skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to do this, you need to have approval from your local authority in Radcliffe, which is known as a skip permit. We can organise this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The council do impose a fee for the license, and it can sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.
Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t need to be home when the skip is delivered, however it does help. Being there whenever the skip arrives means that you can make sure the driver can be given complete access and that the skip can be located exactly where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is hired to your business property, we will appreciate your help during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
Even so, if you can’t be available for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you place your order, and we will organise things from there.
What is a mini skip?
For those who have a small amount of waste to dispose of, a mini skip may be the ideal solution. What size is called a mini skip varies from company to company, depending on what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is considered the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The price is dependent on the actual size you order, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for household work including modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
Is it ok to fill the skip higher than level load mark?
It is essential never to overload your skip. You must not pass the level load mark indicated on the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it is very hazardous to move. This means that if you overload your skip, you might be asked to take off the excess rubbish. Regardless of how safe you feel the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. That is hazardous and is prohibited.
Where does my rubbish go once the skip is collected?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into a number of waste types, including timber, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can in most cases keep the skip for as many as 2 weeks from the delivery date. You can provide a preferred collection day at the time you place your order. Alternatively, you can let us know after you have loaded the skip, and we will organise your collection. Normally, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer over hectic periods.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to dispose of huge amounts of waste. Predominantly, these skips are used for commercial uses. Having said that, residential customers may also hire them. You should take into account the area they take up, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be utilised for light-weight materials including paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of dirt and stone.
What types of waste can I put in a skip?
You are allowed to throw a wide array of waste types into the skip. This includes wood, tile, plastics or rubble from a property clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, soil and rock from garden jobs are permitted also. Units from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in your skip.
However, there are a few items that you cannot put in a skip due to the potential environment or health risk they might trigger.
You are unable to throw in your refrigerator, computer monitor or your old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things consist of hazardous elements in one type or another. They must be discarded separately from your general waste.
Should you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to arrange an independent service for this waste. Please contact us for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
Do you deliver skips across Greater Manchester?
Certainly. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to deliver skips to both domestic and industrial customers throughout Greater Manchester and elsewhere in the UK.
How fast can you deliver a skip to Radcliffe?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive, we strive to offer you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery location, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can lead to a fee for the wasted journey.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is regarded as the frequent skip that is hired across the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builder’s skip is great for most building projects, which is where the name originates from.
The 8 yd builders skip is the biggest size which can be used for hefty materials such as dirt, concrete, rock and gravel.
What size skips do you supply?
We can supply a wide range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip perfect for modest DIY projects and domestic clearances. A common option for bigger jobs, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Radcliffe firms which produce a large quantity of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.
