Runcorn Skip Hire FAQs
Am I able to get a skip which has a drop door?
Generally, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful when choosing a large builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, since they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What size skips do you offer?
This site offers a full variety of skip capacities to household and commercial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Listed below are the different sizes available, with a rough idea of the amount of rubbish each skip is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
- 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags
For additional information about our choice of skips, like dimensions and the waste they can be used for, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you offer?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large industrial size skips that are used mainly in the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for companies that produce large amounts of waste.
What waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
A skip can be hired to discard lots of different types of waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and processing a multitude of materials from construction jobs, garden projects and property clean-ups. Some examples of permitted waste materials include things like:
- Household furniture
- Tree cuttings
- Garden soil
- Concrete and bricks
- Bathroom sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Most materials are generally permitted, and therefore whether you need to discard metals, plastic materials, wood or textiles, we can usually take your waste away.
The quantity and items you discard in your skip may vary depending on which size skip you hired. All skips have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you want to discard garden soil and concrete, as an example, the largest size container you will be able to hire would be the 8 yard builders skip.
Are there items that I can’t discard in the skip?
There are several waste items that you are not able to get rid of in your skip. The reason behind this is that these goods include hazardous materials which may be harmful to the environment. They may also be dangerous to human health, therefore they must be discarded separately under UK regulations.
Some of the items that are restricted include:
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- Computer screens
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
Is it okay to load my skip higher than the top?
You should not load the skip past the level load line. When you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be secure to move, and you may be asked to take off any extra rubbish before it can be collected.
How quickly can you deliver a skip in Runcorn?
We can usually supply skips to Runcorn the following working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking system will give you a range of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you would like a skip to arrive ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
No, you do not have to be at home when we deliver your skip. So long as we can gain access to the place you want it positioned, we can take care of everything.
In case you will not be in, simply let us know any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be located at a particular area of your driveway. Alternatively, you may need to be sure that the skip does not block access to your garage.
No matter what the situation may be, simply let us know when you place your order, and we will ensure your directions will be passed on to the delivery driver.
What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
The waste in the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machinery and by hand into different waste materials, like soil, plastics, rubble and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Runcorn. We work with a network of both local and nationwide providers to enable us to provide our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are vetted to be sure they fulfill the high principles we demand when it comes to customer service, price and environmental performance.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
You can usually keep your skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection is as convenient as possible, there is the option of providing a preferred collection time when you place your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you have finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in many cases, it will be the next working day.
It might take a little while longer to collect your skip during busy times, but we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.
What is the cost of skip hire in Runcorn?
Our aim is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Runcorn. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip that you order. This 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 want to have the skip placed on the road or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the extra cost of the skip permit.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Electronic items such as televisions, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore should not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electrical goods need to be separated from other materials. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
How can I order a skip in Runcorn?
Hiring a skip should not be difficult. That is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible. First, enter your delivery address to see the range of skip sizes we are able to deliver to Runcorn. Choose which size you would like to hire, and confirm if it is going to be delivered on private property. Type in your information and then make payment using our secure online payment platform.
As soon as your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with all your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
If I need a skip on the road in Runcorn, will I need to have a permit?
Normally, it is possible to get your skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to do this, you will need to get permission from your local council in Runcorn, which is called a skip permit. We are able to arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for the license, and it may sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact skip available from skip firms and is ideal for small DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some companies offer you a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the fee for 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.
Can you deliver skips across Cheshire?
Sure, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skips to locations throughout Cheshire, including Runcorn, Crewe, Nantwich and Alderley Edge. So regardless of where you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
How much waste can a builders skip hold?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most commonly supplied for building and construction work. There are generally two sizes that may be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to get rid of significant volumes of building and demolition waste materials, such as garden soil, rubble and stone.
Although labelled a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for many other domestic and industrial waste disposal tasks.
