Ramsbottom Skip Hire FAQs
Do all skips have a drop down door?
Having a skip which has a drop down door helps make filling waste into the skip so much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste such as garden soil or stone, which can then be walked straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up big bulky items like pieces of furniture easier too.
The majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, however this may sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a door is required, and we will do our best to provide this.
Will you deliver to other areas in Greater Manchester?
Absolutely. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to offer skips to both household and commercial customers throughout Greater Manchester and elsewhere within the UK.

How large is a mini skip?
For those who have a small amount of rubbish to throw out, a mini skip might be the perfect option. What size is referred to as a mini skip is different from business to business, determined by what sizes they supply.
The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. Price depends on the specific size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for domestic jobs such as modest DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you need it put on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
What kinds of rubbish am I able to put in a skip?
You can put a variety of rubbish into your skip. This can include timber, floor tiles, plastics or bricks from a house clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, dirt and rock from garden jobs are permitted too. Cupboards from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be thrown in a skip.
There are, however, some items that you cannot put in a skip because of the possible ecological or health risk they might cause.
You are unable to throw out your fridge freezer, television or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things consist of hazardous elements in one kind or another. They should be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
Should you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to organise a separate service for this waste. Please get in touch for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Ramsbottom?
Normally, it will be possible to get a skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to get this done, you have got to have permission from the local council in Ramsbottom, 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 charge a fee for your permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Ramsbottom?
As we provide a UK-wide skip hire service, we utilise an extensive network of verified companies. These include small family-run skip hire firms to nationwide waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to guarantee they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.
Am I allowed to throw away electronic items in my skip?
No, you can not put old or unwanted electrical waste products in your skip. This includes things such as laptops, cookers, washing machines, fridges and monitors. Electrical items can’t be disposed of in the skip since they can include hazardous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
What is the size of a builders skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most commonly used for building and construction projects. There are typically two sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to get rid of large amounts of construction and demolition waste, such as earth, concrete and bricks.
Even though they are labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for multiple other domestic and business waste disposal jobs.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you have asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your order before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver, we strive to offer you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery site, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will lead to a fee for the wasted trip.
Can I fill up the skip above the level load line?
You should not load a skip past the level load line. When you fill it above the tip of this mark, it means your skip is not secure to transport, and you can be asked to take off the extra rubbish before it can be picked up.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
This site offers a full variety of skip sizes to residential and commercial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the enormous 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the different sizes to choose from, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each skip is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
- 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags
For further information about our range of skips, like measurements and the waste materials they can be used for, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
Do I need to be at home when the skip will be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be home when we deliver your skip. So long as we are able to access the place you want it delivered, we are able to manage it all.
When you are not likely to be in, simply let us have any relevant delivery instructions when placing your order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be dropped at a particular side of the drive. Alternatively, you may want to ensure the skip doesn’t block access to your garage.
No matter what the case might be, tell us when you place your order, and we will ensure your instructions are passed to the delivery driver.
Where does the waste go once the skip is collected?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get sorted into various waste streams, which includes timber, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
You can normally hire the skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you have the choice of offering a preferred collection date when you place your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you have finished loading up your skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It might take a little longer to collect your skip over busy times, but we will always try to be there as quickly as possible.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to get rid of large quantities of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these containers are hired for business applications. Having said that, residential customers may also hire them. It is very important take into account the space they will take up, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be hired for light-weight waste including paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of dirt and rubble.
