Ramsey (Isle of Man) Skip Hire FAQs

Will you deliver to other areas in Isle of Man?

Sure, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skips to areas throughout Isle of Man, including Ramsey, Peel, Douglas and Castletown. So no matter where you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

What waste materials can I put in the skip?

Prior to hiring your skip, you must ensure that the sort of rubbish you wish to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.

Examples of waste types you could discard in your skip include home goods like furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use your skip to dispose of building and construction waste, including bricks, soil, rubble, metals and gravel.

Examples of restricted items include things like electronic goods, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from any general rubbish.

If I would like a skip on a road in Ramsey, will I need a permit?

This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if the skip is on private property, like a drive or within your business premises.

Should you need to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, so we can make the required arrangements with your local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can have your skip on your own land, it will save you a few pounds.

What is a mini skip?

For those who have a small amount of waste to get rid of, the mini skip may be the best option. What size is referred to as a mini skip differs from business to business, based on what sizes they supply.

2 cubic yards is considered the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to have a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The cost depends on the actual size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are good for household work including small DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The label comes from the fact that they are the most popular sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.

These large containers are fantastic for numerous residential and business tasks. These are the biggest size skips which can be used for hefty builders waste like garden soil, stone and concrete.

Who will deliver my skip?

A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Ramsey. We work with a network of both regional and nationwide companies to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These firms are assessed to ensure they meet the high expectations we demand when it comes to customer service, cost and environmental performance.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip?

If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get segregated into a number of waste types, including stone, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the waste is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, this will provide you with plenty of time to fill up the skip. However, if you do need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, in the event you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just contact us when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.

Am I able to throw away electrical products in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric products need to be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric powered goods like tumble dryers, monitors, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

You don’t have to be at home when your skip will be delivered, however it does help. Being in whenever the skip is being delivered means you can make sure the lorry is given full access and that the skip is located precisely where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is being hired to company property, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.

Having said that, when you can’t be around during the time of delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you place your order, and then we will arrange things from there.

When will my skip be delivered?

When you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. Sometimes, we will even offer a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed when going through the online order process.

How can I hire a skip in Ramsey?

This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you want to hire. Tell us if the skip is going to be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on council property (like the road). Next, choose the date you need your skip to be delivered. Check your order and make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. That’s it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Ramsey on the day you have selected.

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. Primarily, these skips are used for industrial purposes. However, residential customers may also use them. You will need to look at the space they will occupy, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they must only be hired for light-weight waste including plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and hardcore.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

The vast majority of containers can be supplied with a drop door, which makes them easy to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.

A skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the skip, particularly with heavy materials, such as soil and gravel, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky objects, such as furniture.

What are the different skip sizes to pick from?

We supply a full range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip perfect for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A popular option for larger jobs, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Ramsey businesses which have a large amount of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Am I allowed to stack up the waste in my skip?

It is essential to not overload your skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is indicated along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it can be very hazardous to move. This means that if you overfill your skip, you could be required to take away the surplus waste. Regardless of how secure you think the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This is hazardous and is therefore prohibited.
