Rochdale Skip Hire FAQs
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the following day. Sometimes, we will even give you a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed as part of the online order process.
How many different skip sizes are available?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Rochdale, you have numerous sizes to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard container, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is excellent for small house clearances and DIY work.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most frequent sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their large capacity also makes them suitable for house clearances involving large objects such as household furniture and beds.
We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people and businesses with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These sizes are only suited to lightweight waste materials, so they cannot be used to dispose of soil or stone.
For additional information about the various skip sizes offered, such as measurements, check out our guide to skip sizes.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Rochdale?
To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a variety of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to guarantee we can offer customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.
What happens to the rubbish?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into a range of waste streams, which includes stone, metals and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the waste is recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?
No, you can not put old or unwanted electronic waste products in your skip. This can include items like computers, cookers, tumble dryers, fridges and monitors. Electric items can’t be disposed of in a skip because they can include hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.
Will you deliver skips across Greater Manchester?
We offer a national skip hire service using a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Rochdale, Swinton, Stockport, Walkden or any other area in Greater Manchester, we can assist.
Is it possible to have a skip which has a drop down door?
Having a skip which has a drop down door can make filling waste into it so much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste materials such as garden soil and rubble, which can then be walked directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of large bulky objects like pieces of furniture a lot easier as well.
Most skip containers can be provided with a drop door, however it will sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a drop door is needed, and we will do our very best to deliver this.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, that will provide you with sufficient time to fill up the skip. However, if you do need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, if you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just contact us once you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
How much will skip hire in Rochdale cost?
Our aim is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Rochdale. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you wish to have a skip placed on the street or other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the additional price of a skip permit.
How large is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to deal with numerous tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be located on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most often hired by household customers, the mini skip can also handle small commercial jobs.
Is it okay to fill my skip above the level load line?
You should not fill up the skip past the level load mark. When you fill it up over the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be safe to move, and you might be asked to take off the excess waste prior to it being picked up.
Do I have to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not need to be at home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we can access where you need it located, we will manage everything.
In the event you are not going to be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you place the order. For instance, you might want the skip to be located on a particular area of the property. Or you might need to make sure the skip doesn’t obstruct access to your garage.
Whatever the situation might be, provide the information when ordering, and then we will ensure your directions will be passed on to the delivery driver.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Rochdale?
Ordering a skip in Rochdale through us is very easy. Select the skip size you need and enter a few details about when and where you would like the skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered on the date selected.
What waste materials am I allowed to put in a skip?
This is among the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. The main thing to keep in mind is that you may fill up your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of waste that can come from garden work, construction work and home clearances.
Some of the most frequent things that we pick up in skips include garden soil, timber, bush trimmings, cabinets, sinks, and various household objects.
There are some materials that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. For example, any electronic items (fridges and freezers, TVs and laptops for example), car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all considered hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them needs to follow a completely different process to make sure they do not result in harm to the environment.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builders skip means the size of skip most frequently hired for building and demolition projects. There are usually two sizes that can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to dispose of significant quantities of construction and demolition waste, including soil, concrete and rock.
Although branded a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for a number of other household and commercial waste disposal tasks.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?
The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a massive container that is used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These bins are predominantly for business use but can be used by domestic clients also. Having said that, you will require lots of space since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger in comparison to the typical skip you will likely see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off containers should only be provided for light materials such as plastics, wood and paper, so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and rubble.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Rochdale?
In most cases, it will be possible to have the skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to do this, you have got to get approval from your local authority in Rochdale, which is called a skip permit. We are able to organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to approve this.
