Rawtenstall Skip Hire FAQs

What size is a builder’s skip?

The term builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The name comes from the fact that these are the most popular sizes used by builders and tradespeople.

These substantial skips are great for numerous types of household and business jobs. They are the largest size skips which you can use for heavy builders waste like garden soil, stone and concrete.

Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?

It is always a good idea to be available when anyone delivers something to your property. That allows you to ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be placed precisely where you need it.

The same thing applies for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.

Who will deliver my skip?

We use a network of both regional and national skip hire businesses to supply skips to our customers in Rawtenstall and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner skip companies are approved and tested to make sure they meet our standards for price, service, recycling rates and reliability.

How much waste will the mini skip hold?

If you are searching for a low-cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to take on many tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

Although most frequently hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even tackle small commercial jobs.

If I need a skip on the road in Rawtenstall, will I need to have a permit?

In most situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want the skip to be located on land outside of your company or home, you have got to obtain permission from the local council in Rawtenstall, which is called a skip permit. If required, we will gladly arrange this for you, so it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for the skip license, plus you should know before booking that securing the licence can sometimes take up to two working days.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Rawtenstall?

The price of getting a skip in Rawtenstall will depend on the size of skip you require. The cheapest skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you want to have the skip positioned on the road, as you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.

What size is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial industrial scale skips used primarily in the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for organisations that produce large amounts of waste.

Am I allowed to fill my skip above the level load line?

It is important to never overfill the skip. You should not pass the level load mark that is shown on the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it can be very unsafe to move. This means that if you overload your skip, you might be required to take away the excess waste. However secure you think the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be unsafe and is therefore not allowed.

What waste am I allowed to put in a skip?

Before getting a skip, it is important to check that the type of waste you need to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials must be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Waste types you could put in a skip include household goods like furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You can also use your skip to discard building and demolition rubbish, like wood, dirt, stone, metals and gravel.

Examples of prohibited items include things like electronic goods, tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently need to be discarded separately from any general rubbish.

When will my skip be delivered?

We can in most cases supply skips to Rawtenstall the next working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our online booking platform provides you with a number of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you would like the skip delivered ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.

Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?

Unfortunately this is not allowed, as electronic products including old televisions, fridges, printers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly way.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the different waste streams, such as wood, metals, paper, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

Skips are offered in a number of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is great for small domestic jobs.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a great choice for shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to deal with, a builder’s skip could be the smartest choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, these are the most frequent sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, such as clay and hardcore. However they can equally well be hired for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or bathroom suites.

We also supply 10-16 cubic yard bins and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

What size skips have got a drop door?

Getting a skip which has a drop down door can make loading rubbish into the skip much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste like garden soil or stone, which can then be walked straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up large bulky objects like furniture easier as well.

Most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, although this may sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our best to supply this.
