Royton Skip Hire FAQs

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

I’m afraid not, since electrical items like old TVs, freezers, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects must be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly way.

How long can I keep the skip for?

You can in most cases keep the skip for as long as 2 weeks from the delivery date. You are able to provide a preferred pick up date when you make your order. Alternatively, you can let us know after you have finished with the skip, and then we will prepare the collection. In most cases, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take a little longer during busy periods.

What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are huge commercial scale skips used primarily in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for organisations that produce large volumes of waste.

What is a builders skip?

The term builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. The name comes from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders and tradespeople.

These big containers are fantastic for an array of domestic and commercial tasks. They are the biggest skips that you can use for hefty builders waste such as top soil, rubble and bricks.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

Having a skip with a drop door can make filling rubbish into it much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty materials like dirt or stone, which can then be walked directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of big bulky items such as pieces of furniture much easier too.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, although this can sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when making your order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size delivered by skip firms and is great for small DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some firms offer a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

How many different skip sizes are available?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Royton, you have various options to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard skip, often referred to as a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is great for modest house clearances and DIY jobs.

Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most popular sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also means they are perfect for house tidy ups including bulky items such as pieces of furniture and beds.

We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for customers with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only suitable for light waste, so they can’t be used to get rid of garden soil or rubble.

For further information about the various skip sizes offered, including dimensions, check out our guide to skip sizes.

Who will deliver my skip?

We utilise a large network of both regional and national skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our clients in Royton and the rest of the UK. All of our partner skip hire companies are approved and tested to make certain they meet our standards for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

Can I fill up my skip above the top?

It is important never to overfill your skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is shown on the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it can be very dangerous to transport. This means that when you overfill your skip, you may be required to take off the excess rubbish. However 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. That is unsafe and is prohibited.

How do you order a skip in Royton?

This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or council property (such as the street). After that, choose the day you need your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your skip to Royton on the day you have chosen.

Do you deliver skips across Greater Manchester?

Yes, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver skips to areas across Greater Manchester, such as Royton, Rochdale, Milnrow and Worsley. So no matter where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

What sort of waste can you throw in a skip?

This is among the most popular questions people have about our service. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you may fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are so many kinds of rubbish that can result from garden work, building work and house clearances.

Some of the most common things which we find in skips include soil, timber, bush trimmings, kitchen cabinets, toilets, and various other household items.

However, there are some items that you are not allowed to put in the skip. For example, any electronic products (fridges, TVs or printers for example), old car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all considered hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them has to comply with a completely different procedure to make sure they do not result in harm to the environment.

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

It is usually a good idea to be in when anyone delivers something to your house. You can then ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it.

The same applies for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.

However, when it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Royton?

To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Royton, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display which sizes we offer in your location and how much each option will cost you to hire. If the skip is going on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.

How quickly can you deliver a skip to Royton?

We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you complete your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will normally have your skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver, we strive to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery position, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can lead to a fee for the wasted journey.

What happens to the waste?

After you have finished filling up your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer station in or local to Royton where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

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

Usually, it will be possible to have your skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to do this, you have got to get consent from the local council in Royton, which is called a skip permit. We are able to arrange this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The council do charge a fee for the license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

Other areas covered include Rochdale, Milnrow, Worsley, Kearsley, Marple, Middleton, Chadderton and Cheadle Hulme.
