Rishton Skip Hire FAQs

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Rishton?

Our aim is to give you the cheapest skip hire service in Rishton. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip that you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have the skip placed on the street or other council property, you will also need to factor in the extra expense of a skip permit.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

When you have a small amount of waste to get rid of, the mini skip might be the ideal choice. What size is described as a mini skip varies from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they provide.

2 cubic yards is the most common size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to have a 3 yard container as their smallest option. Cost is based on the particular size you order, instead of the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are good for household tasks like small DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

How do I hire a skip in Rishton?

This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you wish to hire. Tell us if the skip will be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or local authority property (like the road). After that, pick the date you need your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment with our secure online payment platform. All done! We will deliver your skip to Rishton on the day you have chosen.

Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric goods need to be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric products like cookers, televisions, kettles, laptops and even hair straighteners.

Will you deliver to other areas in Lancashire?

Certainly. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we are able to deliver skips to both residential and commercial customers across Lancashire and anywhere else within the UK.

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

A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a large container that can be used to dispose of large volumes of waste. These containers are mainly for industrial use but can be hired by household clients also. However, you should have a good amount of room because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger when compared to the average skip you will see on the roadside.

As a result of the size, roro containers can only be provided for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suited to disposing of soil and bricks.

What types of waste can I put in my skip?

This is amongst the most frequent questions people have about hiring a skip. The most important thing to remember is that you can fill up your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of rubbish that could come from garden work, building work and property clearances.

Among the most frequent things which we see in our skips include soil, timber, bush cuttings, kitchen units, sinks, and various other household objects.

There are also some items that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This can include any electronic products (fridges, TVs or printers for example), old tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and disposing of them has to comply with an entirely different procedure to make sure they don’t result in harm to the environment.

How quick can you deliver a skip in Rishton?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We will typically offer a next day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip on private property, because to go on public property (like a road), you will have to get a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.

Due to numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it to be delivered in a morning or afternoon slot.

Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Rishton?

In the vast majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need the skip to be placed on land outside of your company or residence, you need to secure authorisation from the local authority in Rishton, which is known as a permit. If necessary, we would be glad to arrange this on your behalf, so it’s one less issue to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for your skip permit, plus you should be aware before ordering that securing the licence can sometimes take up to two working days.

What will happen to the waste when the skip is picked up?

When you have finished with your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Rishton where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is probably the most frequent skip which is used throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builders skip is perfect for most building and construction work, which is where the name stems from.

The 8 yard builder’s skip will be the largest option which you can use for hefty waste materials like soil, concrete, stone and rubble.

Which skip sizes have got a drop down door?

Using a skip with a drop door makes filling rubbish into the skip so much easier. This is particularly true with hefty waste materials like soil and stone, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading large bulky objects like furniture much easier also.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, although this can sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a drop door is required, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

You can in most cases keep the skip for up to two weeks from the date of delivery. You may provide a chosen pick up day when you place your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have finished, and then we will plan your collection. Usually, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take a little longer over busy periods.

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

No, you do not need to be home when we are delivering the skip. So long as we are able to gain access to where you need it positioned, we can take care of it all.

In the event you are not going to be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery instructions when booking your order. For example, you might need the skip to be located at a particular part of your drive. Or you might want to ensure that the skip does not obstruct use of your garage.

No matter what the case might be, simply tell us when ordering, and then we will make sure the directions are passed to the lorry driver.

Am I allowed to fill my skip higher than the level load mark?

You should not load a skip past the level load mark. If you fill it above the tip of this level, it means that the skip is not safe to transport, and you might be asked to remove any excess waste prior to it being collected.

Who will deliver my skip?

To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work in partnership with a variety of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to provide customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.
